First Well Certified Apartment Tower in Chicago

Essex on the Park is the first apartment tower in Chicago to receive Well Certification. Issued by the International WELL Building Institute, this award recognizes projects that go above and beyond to enhance health and wellness throughout communities. Focusing on establishing a healthier environment, our team worked closely with the building's developers to build a structure that provides cleaner air and water and reduces fatigue from light glare and exterior noise.
