Unparalleled River North Living at AMLI 808

May 10th, 2021

A shining new star in the center of the thriving River North neighborhood of Chicago, AMLI 808 offers an unparalleled living experience that extends from stellar location to luxurious amenities to high-tech features and more. 

This brand new community combines top-notch living with superb perks and a location to make any city-dweller envious. It’s a one-of-a-kind community in River North that AMLI Residential is proud to present to Chicago.  

It’s all about the location

City life has never been more convenient or more accessible, and as a centrally located apartment building in the heart of Chicago, AMLI 808 makes sure you can get anywhere you need to go in 20 minutes or less.

AMLI 808 is part of a Transit Oriented Development, meaning that the community is designed to support a sustainable transportation lifestyle. So, what does this look like for us? It means living within a few blocks of nearly a dozen train and bus stations. It means having access to a thriving network of bike lanes and pedestrian-friendly commuter routes. It means less reliance on driving a car through stand-still traffic, and instead commuting more conveniently and more sustainably.

Located just a block from the Chicago Avenue Brown & Purple CTA station, residents have immediate access to anywhere from the Downtown Chicago Loop to Evanston to O’Hare International Airport. The community is also just steps from a myriad of bus lines that weave across the entire city, making it not just easy to get around on foot, but convenient, too. 

Plus, to make it even easier, a real-time public transportation tracker is provided in the lobby so that you never miss a bus or train again.

AMLI 808 is a bike-friendly community through and through, with convenient access to nearby bike lanes and a two-story bike amenity space. If you accidentally get a flat tire, you can head to the in-house bike repair station, patch your innertube and be on your way in minutes. 

High-tech amenities

Life is busy in a beautiful kind of way, and AMLI 808 ensures residents have all they need to not just enjoy life, but also thrive. 

Working from home has never been easier with our high-speed Silver IP 1GB Wi-Fi throughout all our amenities, elevators, common areas and apartments. Our 17th floor mezzanine offers collaboration spaces with an expansive view of Downtown Chicago, and the private offices and conference rooms in our two-story CO-LAB space are perfect for meetings, focused study or everyday work.

You know what they say about all work and no play, of course, so a wealth of exceptional amenities are provided as well, allowing you to satisfy your creative endeavors. 

AMLI 808 has two 24-hour fitness centers that come fully equipped with top-tier gym equipment suited for all levels and styles of fitness. When you’re done, swing by the Zen lounge to unwind and reset. 

Relax beside the rooftop pool in the shade of our trellis-covered lounges, or host a barbeque at the expansive outdoor kitchen, bar and grilling station. Entertainment options abound, especially with a luxurious private dining room at your disposal, outfitted with a gourmet kitchen and adjoining terrace. 

Stretch those creative muscles with some time in the DIY maker studio or podcast studio, where we provide all the equipment and inspiration you might need to create your next masterpiece. 

Our hospitality and amenities extend to all our residents, including our four-legged ones! AMLI 808 is a pet-friendly community with plenty of resources to keep your furry friend happy and healthy in the heart of the city. The outdoor paw park and indoor lounge is perfect for meeting those daily exercise goals, and when your pup is ready to come back inside after a long day’s worth of playing, there’s a paw wash ready and waiting. 

You can enjoy the convenience of a 24-hour doorman, a smart keyless entry system and Amazon lockers for all those packages you'll be ordering. 

One-of-a-kind features

AMLI 808 prides itself most on its in-apartment features. Luxurious interiors feature high ceilings, some with stylish exposed concrete, wood-style floors throughout and expansive walk-in closets. The high-end kitchens come outfitted with stainless steel ENERGY STAR® appliances, designer backsplashes, and many floor plans have under-counter beverage centers and built-in wine racks. 

Solid quartz countertops and modern fixtures add a touch of elegance to the bathrooms, as does the designer porcelain flooring. A full-size washer and dryer in each apartment make doing laundry easy.

For those interested in the latest and greatest in in-home tech, all apartments have smart switches, ceiling fans and thermostats. In addition, select floor plans have modular furniture systems able to be moved throughout the apartment on a whim. We are thrilled to incorporate exclusive Ori transformable furniture into these apartments, becoming one of just a handful of buildings in the nation to feature this technology. Effortlessly transform your space from living room to bedroom to dining room, all with a touch of a button or a simple voice command. 


AMLI Residential’s mission to provide green, healthy apartment communities for our residents is exemplified at AMLI 808, which is carefully designed to achieve LEED Gold® standards. 

Our efforts to provide sustainable resources and support an eco-friendly community are reflective in our transit oriented development, pedestrian-friendly location and other nods to sustainable technology like electric car charging stations.

Each apartment contains ENERGY STAR® appliances and quality fixtures designed to lower not only your electric bill, but also your impact on the environment. And if you’re not at home, you can control your heating, air-conditioning and LED lights from anywhere in the city with the help of our smart home technology. 

And if that isn’t enough, we also have a resident herb garden pollinator pathway, as well as on-site recycling, to support your own sustainable living journey.
