This week on the blog, we chatted up South Loop activities and learned more about the residents at Roosevelt Collection.
Over the month of May, Chicagoans have a rare opportunity to view the artwork of Columbia College students at the Glass Curtain Gallery, where Masters of Fine Arts photography candidates exhibit their thesis projects. In addition, South Loop’s Fitness Formula Club hosted a “Day of Luxury” in honor of Mother’s Day featuring complimentary spa services.
Roosevelt Collection General Manager Amy Boduch dropped in to say hello and give residents a renovation update. We wrapped up the week helping our residents get to know their neighbors better with a Tenant Talk post on Erika J. Jordan, the Event Ambassador and avid traveler.
