RMK Management Welcomes First Residents to 73 East Lake Luxury Apartments
- May 30, 2014
Chicago—RMK Management has announced that residents have started moving into the 42-story, M & R Development apartment building in Chicago’s Loop. The luxury building is the first new-construction apartment tower to open in 2014 and M & R’s first luxury apartment tower to open in Chicago since 2010.
“Welcoming the first residents to a building is always one of the most exciting milestones at any development, but it’s especially so in this case as these are also the first move-ins for all of the new-construction luxury towers opening this year,” says Anthony Rossi, Sr., president of Chicago-based M & R Development and RMK Management Corp. “There has been – and continues to be – a lot of interest in 73 E Lake, and we’re proud to show it off.”
The 332-unit building was designed by architect Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) and features a mix of convertible studios, one- and two-bedroom units that range in size from 682 to 1,246 square feet. The building also includes 183 indoor parking spaces.
The units vaunt high-end finishes such as Venatino Quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, 9-foot ceilings, hardwood flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a full-sized in-unit washer and dryer. The units are also designed with the tech-savvy renter in mind. The building offers built-in flat screen television supports with cable management, raised power outlets, and pre-wired high-speed internet and Wi-Fi located throughout the building.
“When designing apartments for urban living, making the most of the space is essential. So we incorporated a number of flexible design elements into 73 East Lake’s residences, like a built-in desk, a moveable kitchen island, and an opaque glass sliding partition in the convertibles for privacy,” Rossi says.
Amenities at the building are located on multiple levels. The 9th and 10th floors offer the bulk of the amenities and include an indoor pool, oversized spa with waterfall, sauna and steam rooms, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness gym with separate fitness room that offers personal training classes. Additionally, residents have access to a business center, two conference rooms, a cyber café, and event room with demonstration kitchen a theater and a sundeck with cabanas and a barbecue area. The 8th floor includes a heated and covered dog run and a pet spa is located on the second floor. The remaining amenities are located on the 42nd floor and include the 2,000-square-foot Sky Lounge and another sundeck that offers city views.
“These amenities are all very focused on the lifestyle of a sophisticated urban renter,” Rossi says. “73 E Lake is the ideal address for people who work hard, but enjoy living well.”
