RMK Management Corp. Awarded Property Management of The Kent Luxury Apartments in Chicago’s Lincoln Park NeighborhoodMarch 19, 2021
RMK Management Corp., one of the Midwest’s largest market-rate apartment management firms, announced it has been selected to oversee property management for The Kent, an 19-story, 133-unit luxury apartment building in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Located at 2625 N. Clark St., The Kent is owned by Strategic Properties of North America.
“We are honored to bring The Kent into the RMK management portfolio of properties as part of our exceptional collection of buildings in Chicago’s ever-popular Lincoln Park and Lakeview neighborhoods,” said Anthony Rossi Sr., chairman of Chicago-based RMK Management. “Our decades of experience in leasing boutique buildings in this area positions us well to meet the needs of The Kent residents, who are surely enjoying the building’s recently renovated units and common spaces.
“And I know our on-site teams are anxious to get to know the residents and help more of them meet each other through our various events and socially-distanced community gatherings that are a hallmark of living in an RMK-managed building,” added Rossi. Examples of recent resident events at other RMK-managed buildings include a Flash Taco food truck, virtual murder mystery party, food drive, holiday lobby treats and more.
Located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, The Kent has an impressive “walk score” of 97 and is a pet-owners dream, as residents are in proximity to some of Chicago’s most popular recreation options, such as Lake Michigan, its lakefront path and beaches; Lincoln Park; and the Lincoln Park Zoo. A new Target is conveniently located directly across the street, and residents are near numerous retail, restaurant and entertainment venues in Lincoln Park. Residents are also just steps from the CTA Clark 22 bus route and less than a mile to Lake Shore Drive.
The Kent offers all one-bedroom, one-bath residences ranging from 671 to 705 square feet. Apartments feature condominium-quality luxury finishes, such as 10-foot ceilings; chef’s kitchens with designer cabinetry, quartz countertops, tile backsplash, island with bar seating and stainless steel appliances; spacious bathroom vanities and walk-in showers; wood-look plank flooring throughout; walk-in closets; and in-unit washers and dryers.
Amenities at The Kent include an updated lobby with coffee bistro station and new first-floor fitness center with circuit + strength training as well as a separate yoga studio with Wellbeats virtual fitness. In addition, the building offers secured entry, a concierge, Luxor mail package management, Tide Cleaners service and a bike storage room.
