Chicago is, without a doubt, one of the United States’ most cosmopolitan cities, with big business, arts, sports, shopping, dining, and stunning architecture within the city limits. For those eager to call the Windy City home, however, there’s one particular luxury building that stands head and shoulders above the rest: NEMA Chicago. This luxe rental building exemplifies everything Chicagoans have come to love about their little slice of Midwestern heaven—so read on to find out what makes this building such a standout.
The neighborhood: Located in Chicago’s Central Station neighborhood, NEMA is at the center of all the city has to offer—and it’s all within walking distance. In mere minutes, you can get from NEMA to some of Chicago’s hottest attractions. Have a picnic in front of Cloud Gate in Millennium Park in the summer, go skating in the winter, walk to the Shedd Aquarium, or browse the countless artifacts at the Field Museum—if you call this centrally-located neighborhood home, it’s all at your fingertips.
The views: Having a home in the center of a city that also offers stunning waterfront views may sound too good to be true, but that’s exactly what residents at NEMA Chicago can enjoy. With incredible sunlit views of the Chicago River and the city’s iconic skyscrapers outside your window to enjoy once the sun rises, you might just find yourself eager to get up early for once.
The range of residences: While many residential buildings—especially rentals—offer a cookie-cutter living environment, that’s anything but true at NEMA. In fact, residents of this Rafael Viñoly-designed luxury tower have a wide range of different home styles to choose from, all in one amazing building. Designed by interior architect David Rockwell—a Chicago native himself—the building’s signature residences offer floor-to-ceiling windows, 9-foot ceiling, wide plank floors, Ecobee3 thermostats, Lutron Caseta lighting, recessed balconies, kitchen islands, Caesarstone counters, and seamless backsplashes, walk-in closets, local cabinetry, and washers and dryers in every home. If that isn’t enough luxury at your fingertips, the building is also home to its Skyline Collection, an assemblage of two- to four-bedroom residences on the building’s 49th through 76th floors, which also come equipped with priority parking, a separate lobby, and an exclusive amenities suite.
The amenities: Whether you live in a signature residence or one of the Skyline Collection homes, you’ll have access to extras unlike any other if you call NEMA home. Residents of the building can enjoy 70,000 square feet of amenities in total, including a 10,000-square-foot deck with three pools, al fresco dining areas, 65-inch TVs, and lounge space, an indoor-outdoor lounge with a fire feature, billiards, and a kitchenette, a sports bar-game room hybrid space, a chef’s kitchen, 75-foot indoor lap pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, golf simulator, and more.
Whether you want to wake up each morning to stunning Chicago River views or just want a wealth of entertainment options at your fingertips when you come home, NEMA has got you covered. More than just a place to call home, this stunning tower can make anyone a Chicago convert yet.
