The building has an entire floor dedicated to communal and entertainment amenities including a spa, billiards room, fitness center, media, club, and conference rooms. A gourmet kitchen is available for residents to rent for private parties. Hubbard Place is located next to the well-known East Bank Club along the Chicago River. Additional amenities include an swimming pool with a sun deck, landscaped garden, fire pit, and open air kitchen on an outdoor deck over the eight-story, 520-car screened parking garage.

The building’s thoughtful design approach took an inclusive view of the surrounding community, and aimed to establish connections between Hubbard Place residents and local merchants whose shops line Hubbard Street. Taking the community approach even further, the 44-story tower features a lushly landscaped park open to residents and community members.

The LEED Silver certified project is environmentally conscious with its use of high-performance glass and heavily insulated wall construction. The angled building orientation and balconies along the east and west elevations provide superior solar heat gain mitigation.
