Welcome to your weekly resident newsletter!

Now more than ever, we are focused on operating in the best interests of our residents and the NEMA community. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and diligently following government and health officials’ recommendations.

With this newsletter, we are hoping to offer useful and light-hearted content to help you manage social distancing and make the best of the current situation that we are all in.

We're here for you!


"If there is anything Chicagoans know it is uncertainty, whether it’s our random weather or hoping our sports team wins the championship. This uncertain circumstance we find ourselves in is no different.

One of the things I love about my position at NEMA is that I have the opportunity to listen to many of you. Many have shared how you are coping during the quarantine and not letting your spirits down, I truly enjoy hearing all your stories. I want to add that I am here for all of you! I know these are tough times but at the end of all of this, we will be stronger. Let’s take the time to learn something new, communicate with friends and family, be kind to one another, and be there for those in need. We can get through this together and better days will come!"

- Alfredo, Package Delivery Coordinator


Do you love to lift weights? Here are a couple of alternative options that you can find in your own home: squat or deadlift the end of your couch, use salt bags for a water softener, pack a suitcase to your desired weight, or use wine bottles for lighter weights. Then grab your weights and join the NEMA Fitness Team Live on Zoom, visit your NEMA Life app for the link.

Home Made Better

NEMA Chicago carries forward the brand’s commitment to art. From the arrival through our front entry through residential corridors and amenity areas, NEMA’s walls and spaces are adorned with pieces by local and renowned artists, often showcasing local inspiration, and always thoughtfully curated to create a bespoke home for our residents.

Color Block Towers
By Chris Nelke (CoWork)

Chicago’s skyline is replete with skyscrapers that have been engineered using cutting-edge techniques. Witness the gravity-defying narrow base of 150 North Riverside, or River Point with its distinctive arched base. We asked sculptural artist Chris Nelke to create his own take on Chicago’s architectural wonders on a smaller, more playful scale. Nelke used painted blocks on a metal base to rise to the challenge with these Color Block Towers.
