Glas Haus Condos

Glas Haus Condos in Chicago is being developed by the Piedmont Group and designed by the architect firm of  Brininstool and Lynch.  This completely unique project is expected to be completed in 2008 and is a one of a kind addition to the South Loop area.  The Piedmont Group, founded in 1996, has been successful in picking areas of the city that are expanding and in need of quality homes at an affordable price. 

Glas Haus, as you might guess by the name, will feature a construction design using glass as the primary focal material of course.  Three different glass panel types will be incorporated into the building to create what the company calls a "random floating pattern."  Opaque, translucent and reflective glass panels cut in different sizes and used to sheath the twenty-five stories of the building will accomplish this optical effect. 

Glas Haus is situated in the fast growing South Loop, providing luxury condos in an area that is ripe with new businesses, restaurants, retailers and much more.  The neighborhood has been experiencing a rejuvenation for the past couple of decades and Glas Haus will now be a part of that.  Residents can feel like they are a part of something special and grow with the community. 

Nearly anything you would need can be found not far from Glas Haus.  There are a number of really nice restaurants for fine dining plus smaller cafes for a quick bite.  If you work in the large business section, makes it simple to go to your job from Glas Haus.  Shopping is an adventure with everything from specialty shops, fashion boutiques and bigger retailers close by. 

Transportation also isn't a problem for residents of Glas Haus.  There are plenty of public transportation options in the area and access to the Loop.  So if you can't walk to where you need to go from Glas Haus, it is a simple matter of a quick trip by car or train.

The Glas Haus exterior is an eye catcher, to be sure, but the inside of the building has seen the same attention to detail in the design process.  The building lobby is richly decorated and a pleasure to enter every day.  It will make a lasting impression on guests when they come to visit residents.  A complete security system is on tap, along with a twenty-four hour doorman and convenient package and mail delivery room for all of your shipping and receiving needs.  This is especially handy during the holidays if you have gifts to ship to friends and family far away.  No more waiting in long lines at the post office or shipping centers.  For entertainment without leaving the building, residents can enjoy watching a movie in the theater room and then zip back up to their condos in one of the three building elevators.

Lower floors of Glas Haus will contain four levels of heated parking, complete with a car wash.  Not only can you park inside with safety and never have to deal with the rain and snow, you can also wash your car without having to go to a commercial car wash.  There will be over 12,000 square feet of shopping and retail space where residents can browse.  

Taking care of your physical and relaxation needs is something the designers of Glas Haus took seriously.  The building has a fitness center with all the best exercise equipment to help residents stay healthy.  Wind down in the spa or improve your outlook and flexibility in the yoga room.  And you can lock your bike up safe in the storage area and don't worry about hauling it up to your condo. 

Just a few floors up is a spacious green oasis of a terrace that has an impressive display of trees and plants.  Residents can play with their dog, catch some sun, hang out at the pool or use the grill area and kitchen resources to entertain guests or host a small party.

If you just have to bring your work home with you, then Glas Haus wants to help by providing a business center.  This is a great place to get your work done or host a meeting with work associates.  The center has all the office equipment you might need to get the job done.

All of the 262 condos in Glaus Haus will feature hardwood flooring and plush carpeting, floor to ceiling windows, kitchens with wood cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.  Baths come trimmed in stone and marble with tubs and showers.  The floor plans call for one bedroom and bath condos and two bedroom, two bath condos, both with balconies.  The penthouse suites can have up to three bedrooms and include inset balconies.  Prices for these homes run a wide range from $230,000 all the way up to $810,000.
