More brand new West Loop apartments are coming in mid-September 2017 with the addition of EMME Chicago apartments. Emme is another exciting development from Portland, OR-based Gerding Edlen, the developer of Xavier and Jones.

Located at 165 North Desplaines Street, EMME sits in the West Loop’s Gateway area, offering easy access to Chicago’s Loop, River North and Fulton Market neighborhoods. The property has a strong focus on sustainable living, with the goal of receiving LEED Gold Certification from the United States Green Building Council.

Apartments at EMME

EMME offers studio, convertible, one bedroom, one bedroom plus den and two bedroom floor plan options for rent. Each apartment features built-in Energy Star-rated appliances, Italian cabinetry and quartz counters, stone bathroom vanities, engineered wood flooring throughout the apartment, exposed concrete ceilings, Nest learning thermostats, LED lighting and non-toxic finishes.

Every unit at EMME is a dog-friendly Chicago apartment and the building offers the convenience of an onsite indoor/outdoor dog run and dog washing stations.

Amenities at EMME

Gerding Edlen is known for their creative use of amenity spaces to enhance a renter’s lifestyle and EMME does not disappoint. The building will feature a small rooftop urban garden with fresh fruit and vegetables grown for residents. On the very top of the building will be an 8,000 square foot rooftop farm commercially maintained by The Roof Crop, which will be harvested for distribution to local restaurants and grocers.

In addition to maintaining EMME’s urban gardens, The Roof Crop will host events for residents including farmers markets, dining events, and cooking workshops.

Other property amenities include a library and co-working spaces, community chef’s demonstration kitchen, outdoor terrace with grilling stations, bike parking and maintenance, rooftop pool and cabanas, rooftop fitness center and yoga studio.

With easy access to the West Loop dining scene on Randolph Street, EMME residents have plenty to see and do outside their home. The location is close to public transit, providing direct access to downtown Chicago neighborhoods. EMME is within one block of the Green “L” line and near Metra stations. The surrounding blocks provide multiple bus lines and Divvy bike share stations.
