A teaser video featuring Rafael Viñoly was just launched in concert with the announcement that NEMA Chicago will be opening this coming spring.
The 76-story, Rafael Viñoly Architects-designed luxury residential rental tower was inspired by Daniel Burnham’s rational urban plan for Chicago, while the building’s structural system evokes the city’s iconic Willis Tower.
All residential units throughout the building benefit from a larger than typical structural bay, a distinction that allows for floor-to-ceiling glass windows with zero sightlines and unparalleled lake and park views. Residents will also have access to a 70,000-square-foot collection of locally-inspired amenities and tech-powered services. The building’s interiors channel the structural expression of Chicago’s architecture and play with the idea of the city grid to create a chic, modern, welcoming home.
