Facts

  • The building is named after Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, the head of Chicago's Roman Catholic Archdiocese from 1982-1996, whose seat was in the nearby Holy Name Cathedral.
  • The building is unusual for a high-rise development in Chicago, in that it is being built without any zoning variance. Its size and use fit within the allowances of the zoning code, with the idea of creating a boutique property.
  • The Bernardin is located adjacent to the Holy Name Cathedral complex, Loyola University's Water Tower Campus, and the Francis Xavier Warde School.
  • At street level the building will include several retail storefronts, ringed by abundant landscaping, planters, and street furniture.
  • The exterior design was inspired by the color, scale, and aesthetics of architecture in Rome and Florence. The multicolored facade will feature flower boxes, shutters, and balconies with decorative iron grillwork.
  • The building's base is designed to match the scale of the podium of The Chicagoan next door.
  • A 6th floor terrace will include a pool, garden, barbecue pit, workout facility, and other amenities.
