505 N State | Palomar Hotel

505 North State Street is a 380,000 SF mixed-use tower that shares a prominent urban site with Kenzo Tange’s unique 1990 headquarters for the American Medical Association. Siting of the building preserves the beautiful ground level plazas, water features and colonnades. The tower configuration complements the massing of its neighbor and provides stunning views of Chicago’s Loop, Magnificent Mile and Lake Michigan.

The Hotel Palomar, a four-star brand of Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, occupies the fourteen lower levels, and includes the signature Sable restaurant, ballroom and full conference facilities, indoor swimming pool, fitness center and rooftop deck.

The residential units at 505 North State occupy the top eighteen levels and each has a private balcony and two all-glass corners. Residential floor plates are small, with seven units on each level.
