VIPs, elected officials and project partners attended the private grand opening of a new and eagerly-anticipated luxury apartment complex across from Wrigley Field.

More than 150 guests attended the grand opening celebration, including Tom Ricketts, chairman of the board of the Chicago Cubs, and 44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney. The event included tours of the model residences and baseball-themed amenity spaces, including the Upper Deck, a rooftop deck with pool, spa and grilling stations; the Training Zone, a state-of-the-art fitness center; the Diamond Lounge, an indoor residential retreat with community kitchen; and the Bullpen, an outdoor dog park.

Retail and entertainment tenants participated in the event with specialty food offerings, giveaways and exclusive offers for attendees.

Two gentlemen on “Kegways” delighted guests as they poured beer while zipping around the outdoor amenity space.

We were called upon by the developer’s public relations firm to coordinate this high-profile ribbon cutting event.
