Chess Lofts


Located at 320 E 21st Street, the Chess Lofts building has a historic past: built in 1930, Chicago- based recording studio Chess Records introduced the world to the music of Etta James, Howlin’ Wolf, and many more. The building was converted to lofts in 2007, offering 119 units which highlight the perfect balance of original industrial details and modern amenities.

Recently gut-renovated units range from 1 to 2 bedrooms with spacious open floor plans, soaring 12-foot concrete ceilings, exposed brick, and hardwood flooring throughout. High-end lighting fixtures and in-unit laundry add to the luxurious feel of the residences, while balconies showcase sweeping city views. Newly modernized kitchens feature custom cabinetry, premium stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and glass tile backsplashes. Spa-like touches shine in the freshly rehabbed bathrooms with all-new porcelain tile, floating vanities, and stone shower and bath surrounds.

Situated in the heart of the South Loop, the Chess Lofts offer superior amenities. Indoor parking is available, and residents can enjoy the common roof deck and exercise room. On-site management and a well-managed association are always on hand to help residents. Chess Lofts’ location cannot be beat- just minutes to the Loop, Lake Michigan, McCormick Place, and Soldier Field. Experience the vibrant restaurant scene of the South Loop and shop at the trendiest boutiques.
