It has probably never been a better time to rent a luxury apartment as many renters have fled Chicago, and other large cities like New York and San Francisco, in search of less crowded suburban living. This urban exodus has brought apartment prices down, and luxury renters can find some once-in-a-lifetime deals.
Welcome to NEMA Chicago, the largest rental tower in the city, rising 896 feet along the south edge of Grant Park. Opened in 2019, this is one of the most luxurious rental buildings in town, featuring some over-the-top amenities such as the full Olympic-sized boxing ring, a basketball court, golf simulation, and a lounge, kids center, and co-working lounge.
And there’s more. Nema offers another lounge space with a pool table, fireplace, and kitchen. There’s also a sports bar (of course!) featuring a wall of TVs and a self-serve beer tap.
But one of the main draws of the building are its sweeping views, and where better to enjoy those amazing views than its top-floor units. Dubbed the Skyline Collection – residences on floors 49 through 76 – offer the best views and some exclusive amenities. Leases for 3- and 4-bedroom penthouses are now priced at a discounted $15,000 a month in a limited time offer.
Given these units were priced a year ago at roughly $25,000, we can safely call this a once-in-a-lifetime deal.
The 4-bedroom penthouse features 2,703 square feet of living space, 11’6” high ceilings, large outdoor terrace for dining and entertaining, as well as top-of-the-line appliances and designer furniture. All skyline residences enjoy a private entrance and a 24-hour concierge staff and room service from the building’s catering kitchen.
Residents can enjoy the city’s most impressive vistas of Grant Park, Lake Michigan, and Chicago’s iconic skyline through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and private outdoor terraces. The penthouse features custom-designed kitchens by David Rockwell, custom-designed walk-in closets in master bedrooms, soaking tubs, and more.
