ARDUS Apartments Interior Green Wall

676 N. LaSalle Drive is the address of the ARDUS, an apartment community in River North neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.

The ARDUS is a shortened version of the name “Bogardus,” the business which manufactured steam gauges and automatic valves in the early 1920s in the original structure of this building on Huron Street and LaSalle Drive.

As the former industrial building received a face-lift to bring it into the 21st century, green walls were added to the lobby to soften the structure and add year-round connection to nature for its residents.
