FULTON MARKET — With stunning 180-degree city views, luxury amenities and a killer location, The Parker is now leasing in red-hot Fulton Market. 

The new 29-story luxury rental high-rise, located at 739 W. Couch Place just off of Lake and Halsted streets, features a top-floor observation deck with sweeping views of Downtown, an outdoor pool, sundeck and common spaces on the sixth and 29th floors. First tenants are moving into the building now. 

The curved building, designed by principal architect Larry Booth of Booth Hansen and developed jointly by Shapack Partners, Focus Development and Atlantic Realty Partners, features 227 units, 157 parking spaces and 8,500-square-feet of retail space. Features also include a full gym and "dog patch" — an outdoor dog walk and wash.

The building offers a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units. A 522-square-foot studio rents from $1,750 per month and a 1,378-square-foot unit with three bedrooms and two bathrooms rents from $4,945.

Through 9-foot-tall floor-to-ceiling windows, most units in The Parker have views of the eastern skyline, but the western views of burgeoning Fulton Market are just as stunning, developer Jeffrey Shapack said. 

"The city views are incredible, but views looking down on Fulton Market are equally incredible," Shapack said this week.

The building's lighting, artwork and lobby are meant to evoke "an intimate hotel feel," Shapack said. Each floor of the building will be outfitted with artwork by Chicago-based artist Don't Fret. The mural segments, which are featured prominently on each floor, lined the site before the building was erected.

Construction on the interior is ongoing, and is expected to be complete in September. 

The development partners bought the site in February of 2014 and construction began in early 2015. The site previously housed a hardware store, fish market and antique market.
