Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 29, 2010
Magellan Development Group, a leading development group when it comes to Chicago apartments for rent, and NNP Residential, its property leasing and management affiliate, won several prestigious awards at the Chicagoland Apartment Association (CAA) Excellence Awards.
The Chicagoland Apartment Marketing and Management Excellence (CAMME) awards recognize owners and associates who make superior contributions to Chicago apartment marketing and management through exemplary achievements. With more than 50 awards, NNP holds the record as Chicago’s most awarded apartment manager. This is the third time Magellan and NNP won the CAMME’s highest award in the past four years.
“The criteria for CAMME awards are exacting and demanding and the competition is tough, so we are honored by this recognition of our management and marketing efforts,” said Robin Loewenberg Berger, Magellan Development Group CMO.
Magellan’s big wins, the Property Excellence Award, and Community Amenities Package, were both for the internationally-acclaimed mixed-use Aqua tower at its Lakeshore East development. The tower has received acclaim from all over for its distinctive design, unique contours with outdoor balconies and terraces and its contribution to Chicago’s already architecturally distinctive skyline.
Aqua’s amenities package, called The Shore Club, offers features to residents that are similar to a world-class resort, including two floors of outdoor/indoor entertainment and recreation facilities that boast the largest outdoor pool and amenity deck in the city.
The 80,000-square-foot landscaped deck includes a sundeck and gardens, running track, swimming pools and hot tub, poolside cabanas, fire pit, barbecue areas and wireless internet.
Inside, a 35,000-square-foot amenity floor provides residents and guests with fitness facilities, a basketball court, group fitness studio, indoor lap pool and hot tub, sauna, steam and massage rooms, club suites with catering kitchens, sky garden lounge, media room, billiards and game area, and business center with conference room.
In addition, Magellan and NNP won the Community Service Program Award for the Magellan Spring Half Marathon and 10K Race held last May that raised $250,000 on behalf of the Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute. This institute is a collaborative effort of clinical research and medical and surgical treatment for brain and spinal tumor patients between the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
“We are particularly gratified with this recognition,” Berger said.
