"You see a fresh smile, no matter how tired you are you feel good, and you call that home."
That's the word from Ricardo, the man who lights up with a smile when residents -- and visitors like myself -- approach his desk in the stylish lobby at Echelon at K Station, a luxury high-rise in the Fulton River District.
The role of the doorman in high-rise buildings has expanded, and the more capable doormen have acquired the skills and taken on the duties of concierges.
The concierge can be the first person you see in the morning and the last to welcome you home in the evening. Whether it's steering your visitors to the nearest parking spot, recommending a good restaurant, or alerting you that you've had a package delivery, a building concierge can make residents' lives easier and more pleasant in innumerable ways.
In this sponsored video you'll meet Ricardo, the lead concierge at Echelon at K Station. Ricardo is a native Chicagoan, a South-Sider who's adapted easily to life among the North Side's Cubs fans.
