A welcome addition to the skyline, NEMA Chicago has already made news for being the city’s tallest high-rise rental. Now your clients can become part of the story.
Fusing artful design with world-class architecture, NEMA Chicago has everything residents need to balance work and play under one roof in the bustling South Loop: thoughtful lifestyle programming, smart-home-ready residences, and technological optimization of services and amenities. NEMA has Chicago’s first full-building, managed, gigabit-capable internet connection. Ahead of the tech curve, the high-rise offers contact-free, secure touchless building entry and access to elevators and apartments.
Its 1210 South Indiana Ave. address, at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Roosevelt Road across from Grant Park, guarantees residents unobstructed views of the skyline, Lake Michigan and the city’s glorious front yard. Art installations reflecting local culture hang on lobby walls and in common hallways, reminding residents they are part of something truly special.
“We understand and love the cities that we build in, always drawing inspiration from each neighborhood to create an authentic experience that our residents appreciate,” says Tomer Bitton, principal at Crescent Heights, world-renowned developer of NEMA Chicago. In business for 30 years, Crescent Heights manages all of its properties in a hands-on way to ensure high-quality service and resident satisfaction. Its standard service team — a dedicated concierge, on-site management and maintenance staff, resident service coordinators, and porters — is committed to offering an elevated, consistent experience that residents can rely on year after year.
Declared “an instant landmark” and “skyline bookend for the Aon Center” by Chicago Tribune architectural critic Blair Kamin, the 76-story building is the vision of celebrated architect Rafael Vinoly come to life. Internationally recognized for creating impressive structures across the country and globe, Vinoly designed 432 Park Ave. in New York — the western hemisphere’s tallest residential tower and one of the world’s most expensive addresses — as well as the Tokyo International Forum.
“Chicagoans appreciate a premium product and quality of service, and NEMA was designed in response to that,” says Zach Ktsanes, asset manager, Crescent Heights. “The feedback has been phenomenal, and our lease-up rate only proves that.”
Sophisticated, locally inspired interiors were designed by Chicago native David Rockwell, founder and president of Rockwell Group. Celebrated for such projects as Nobu restaurants and hotels worldwide and award-winning Broadway sets, Rockwell Group has placed its bespoke, elegant stamp on every unit at NEMA Chicago.
With monthly rental prices starting at $1.900 for studios and running up to $25,000 for 4-bedroom apartments, NEMA has an option to suit every lifestyle: Signature residences range from studios to 3-bedroom apartments and the Skyline Collection offers premium features. Smart-home-ready, all residences are equipped with a Lutron Caseta lighting system and ecobee3 thermostat, both compatible with Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
Signature residences boast luxury bathrooms with polished chrome Hansgrohe fixtures and Duravit sinks. Elegant master bedrooms feature custom Italian designer closets. In select units, options include dual vanities and walk-in closets with customizable Elfa organization systems. Custom-designed David Rockwell pendants make an elegant statement in the kitchen, which is outfitted with Chicago-sourced custom cabinetry featuring soft closures and dimmable lighting. Completing the elegant look are Caesarstone countertops, seamless backsplashes, and Blomberg stainless steel gas ranges and paneled dishwashers.
Taking luxury living a step further, Skyline Collection residences on floors 49 through 76 are 2- to 4-bedroom apartments with premium features, spacious floor plans and extended ceiling heights. Skyline Collection residences also come with exclusive access to a dedicated collection of amenities and services. Residents can luxuriate in bathrooms equipped with polished nickel fixtures and quartz countertops. Some units have soaking tubs, too. What’s more, the Skyline Collection is upgraded with David Rockwell custom-designed kitchen islands, paneled Blomberg refrigerators and dishwashers, and Bosch gas ranges.
“Residents can enjoy the lakefront for morning runs or afternoons at the beach; live music or picnics in Millennium Park; or some outdoor fun with their kids and pets in the dedicated parks like Maggie Daley Park and Grant Bark Park,” says Taylor Maggi, marketing manager with Crescent Heights. “NEMA’s unbeatable location places the best of Chicago right at our residents’ front door.”
Other local treasures within walking distance include Soldier Field, the Field Museum, the Adler Planetarium, the Wabash Arts Corridor and fantastic dining options. NEMA is also minutes away from major employers, posh hotels and boutiques in the popular West Loop, River North and Streeterville neighborhoods.
Train transportation via the Roosevelt Road Red Line and 11th Street Metra Station is less than a five-minute walk away. For those who prefer to drive, NEMA is near major interstates I-290, I-94 and I-55, making traveling in and out of the city convenient.
Whether it’s movie nights, game days, cooking demonstrations or networking events, there is always an opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other. “Lifestyle programming is an integral part of our brand,” Bitton says. “Engaging live and virtual resident events build a sense of community and foster meaningful connections.”
A phenomenal 70,000 square feet of amenities includes options for entertainment, wellness and productivity. NEMA’s state-of-the-art fitness center features premium equipment: Peloton bikes, Woodway treadmills and the Technogym SKILLMILL. With separate studios for everything from Pilates to spin cycling and with courts for boxing, basketball, squash and simulated golf, it’s easy to stay fit.
Residents can entertain guests or take time out for themselves at the 10,000-square-foot resort-style deck with spa pools, lounge chairs and daybeds. Your clients might also take in the view at Park Terrace, an outdoor raised-wood deck overlooking Grant Park that offers comfortable seating, a fire pit and heat lamps to keep them warm on chilly nights.
One of NEMA’s many private entertaining areas features 65-inch TVs, Viking barbecue grills, ice makers and refrigerators for anyone who wants to host a game-day party or special night out at home. NEMA also has a sports bar, coworking space, kids play area and dog park with grooming station. Best of all, on nights when residents don’t feel like cooking, they can order dinner from the on-site chef, who offers a rotating menu of seasonally inspired, made-to-order dishes delivered straight to their door. On Friday mornings, residents can grab a complimentary continental breakfast to go.
“At NEMA, everything has been intelligently designed and considered to promote an ultimate living experience unlike anything else,” Bitton says.
