RMK Management Corp., one of the Chicago area’s largest market-rate apartment management firms, announced it has been selected to oversee property management for 1000 S.

Also joining the firm’s property management portfolio is 229 Park, a boutique, luxury rental building in downtown Clarendon Hills, Ill., with 42 luxury one- and two-bedroom residences and seven Live|Work units.
“We are excited to bring our deep commitment to customer service to the residents at both 1000 S. Clark and 229 Park,” said Anthony Rossi Sr., chairman of Chicago-based RMK Management. “While each property attracts different demographics, our decades of experience positions us well to meet the needs of the residents at each property.”
A 29-story apartment tower, 1000 S. Clark offers studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences with individual units ranging from 512 to 2,730 square feet. Located in Chicago’s South Loop, the community also has six three-bedroom rental townhomes measuring 3,173 square feet each. The townhome rentals include a two-car garage. All rentals at 1000 S.

Select units also feature floor-to-ceiling windows, custom Elfa® closets and balconies.
“1000 S. Clark is a great option for residents looking to truly build a community within their apartment building,” said Rossi. “RMK manages many luxury apartment buildings in Chicago – including 73 E. Lake and The Residences of Addison & Clark – so I can honestly say that residents looking for a South Loop apartment building loaded with amenities will be hard-pressed to find one that offers more indoor and outdoor amenities than 1000 S. Clark.”
The building’s 43,000 square feet of amenity space includes a 20,000-square-foot rooftop sundeck complete with outdoor television lounges, outdoor bar space with grills and dining areas, firepits, and an all-weather pool deck with tanning terrace and hot tub.
