River North High-Rise Promises Your Neighbors Will Be Hotties

By Mae Rice in News on Jan 12, 2016 3:53PM

As we all learned from MTV’s The Real World, living in close quarters with hot people leads to a smattering of hottub threeways, but mostly just to a lot of screaming. However, a Near North Side building is still advertising its charms with a sign out front promising “attractive residents,” CBS reports.

Other, similar signs, arrayed in a row along the front of 805 N. La Salle St., read “heated dog run”; “already 65% leased,” which seems like a potential case of damning yourself with faint praise; and “active fitness rooms,” which makes it sound like said rooms are constantly… undulating, I guess.

A reporter for CBS talked to one resident who dispelled some misconceptions about the "attractive residents" ad:

David Sleeter has lived in the building since July and says the location perfect.

He says he wasn’t judged on how he looked or required to submit a photo with his application. Still, Sleeter says he would’ve picked another sign to put out front.

He says the people living in the building are, “just basic normal young professionals living in River North.”

The building's management was not immediately available for comment. We’ll update this story if we hear back.
