Nema Chicago Officially Done with Completion of "Skyline Collection" Floors

Judging by an article we just read on the website Chicago Architecture, Nema Chicago (1200 S. Indiana) is officially completed now that the "upper tier" of residences have been finished:

Miami developer Crescent Heights announced recently that the skyscraper designed by Rafael Viñoly at 1200 South Indiana Avenue is officially complete, including its “Skyline Collection.”  

A number of Chicago skyscrapers, like One Bennett Park, Aqua, and the former John Hancock Center, have “upper” and “lower” tiers of residences.  The lower tier is awesome.  The upper tier is all that and a bag of chips.

In NEMA’s case, the upper tier residences run from the 49th through the 76th floors.  There, if you have the cash or the right friends, you will find two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments ranging from $4,889 to $14,900 per month.

Breathing the air up there also gets you a private lobby, higher ceilings, a private amenity floor, and a balcony.  NEMA states these balconies are “20-square-foot private outdoor terraces perfect for dining and entertaining above it all.”  We’re going to assume that should be “200-square-foot” balconies, otherwise the only entertaining going on out there will be awkward middle school slow dancing.

The article has some great eye candy of what the views of Chicago look like from these units and shared spaces so head on over to check them out.  It's a cool building and seems like a great addition to the neighborhood.  

We will be curious to see if/when they consider they second tower at Michigan and Roosevelt.  Our guess is that it will be some time before plans are developed for that one...
