This month, Barker Group is spotlighting 225 N Columbus Dr, otherwise known as The Aqua as a feature listing and must see property. The high rise boasts many awards including the Emporis Skyscraper Award in 2009; this structure is the largest project of this magnitude to have its development facilitated by an American firm led by a woman, Jeanne Gang.
The Aqua's physical appearance speaks for itself; with it's curving balconies aptly placed throughout the structure, it creates a facade resembling waves along the Lakefront it neighbors. The Aqua is also a multi-faceted property, besides various apartments for purchase and rent, The Aqua also hosts the Radisson Blu Hotel for visitors to get a taste of "The Aqua experience".
