808 Wells Rendering

808 Wells is another example of how Smithfield takes luxury to the next level. It has all the features and amenities buyers are looking for in a high-end building along with a number of innovative design elements and details.

Chicago-based Smithfield Properties and its exclusive sales and marketing firm, @properties, announced the start of sales for 808 Wells, a new high-rise condominium development located at the northwest corner of Chicago Avenue and Wells Street in the River North neighborhood. An on-site sales center and fully furnished three-bedroom model home are now open for the development, which is 30-percent sold just weeks after opening.

Designed by Berkelhamer Architects, with Antunovich Associates as the architect of record, the 24-story building will feature 40 luxury condominiums ranging from 1,558 to 5,003 square feet. Single-story and two-story floor plans are offered, with two- to four-bedrooms and two-and-a-half to four-and-a-half baths. All residences include expansive private terraces. Pricing ranges from $1.035 million to $4.285 million, with two garage parking spaces included in the purchase of each home.

Smithfield has been one of the most active condominium developers in downtown Chicago over the last several years. Last year, the firm introduced 400 West Huron, which sold out in just nine months at market-topping prices for the Kingsbury Park neighborhood. Smithfield also developed 30 West Oak in the Gold Coast, where re-sale units have been averaging over $1,000 per square foot. Other Smithfield condo developments include SoNo Tower in the Clybourn Corridor, and Kingsbury on the Park and Erie on the Park in River North.

“808 Wells is another example of how Smithfield takes luxury to the next level,” said @properties co-founder Thaddeus Wong. “It has all the features and amenities buyers are looking for in a high-end building along with a number of innovative design elements and details.”

Similar to 400 West Huron, the interiors at 808 Wells will be sleek and refined with design features including marble flooring throughout; Valcucine kitchen cabinets; solid surface countertops; 10’ and 12’ ceilings; and Miele appliances. Other standard finishes include master-bedroom closets with built-in organizing systems; 8’ solid-core interior doors with custom trim and Baldwin hardware; and multi-zone year-round heating and air conditioning.

Baths feature Valcucine cabinetry, Grohe faucets and Toto toilets. Master baths include a freestanding soaking tub and separate shower with frameless glass door and channel drain detail.

808 Wells will also feature an assortment of upscale amenities including a 24-hour doorman; fitness center; climate-controlled wine storage; sun deck; and dog run.

“Smithfield homebuyers don’t want what everyone else has. They want something new and different and a cut above in terms of design and finish. That was the starting point for 808 Wells, and the market has responded enthusiastically. There is already a lot of excitement and activity surrounding the development,” said Wong.

The sales center and furnished model for 808 Wells are open on Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 PM and by appointment. For more information about the development, visit
