RMK Management was selected to manage 21 East Chestnut, a luxury apartment complex in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood

RMK Tapped to Manage Gold Coast Luxury Apartments 

RMK Management Corp. was selected by East Chestnut Realty LLC and DC21 Realty LLC to oversee property management for 21 East Chestnut, a 24-story, 168-unit luxury apartment building in the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago’s Near North Side. The community, which recently underwent renovations to all common areas and most apartments, is 91% leased. 

“We’re very excited to help residents get the most out of 21 East Chestnut’s newly designed common areas, especially the renovated coworking area,” said Anthony Rossi Sr., chairman of Chicago-based RMK. “With so many renters opting for a hybrid work schedule, the building’s new conference rooms, private booths and dedicated Zoom rooms are exactly what they want from a work-from-home set up.” 

Renovations to the building began in 2019, and approximately 90% of apartments have been revamped. The renovated units feature abundant closet space, stainless steel appliances, hardwood flooring, quartz countertops and in-unit washer and dryer.
