Aqua Apartments

Live in one of Chicago’s most distinctive, award winning apartments.

Aqua apartments for rent in Chicago are unlike anything in the city. When you live at Aqua you are surrounded by the best of Chicago including Lake Michigan, the Chicago River, Millennium Park, and your very own 6-acre Park at Lakeshore East. Accent your home with a balcony as unique as you are, with no two balconies alike. The architectural fluid contour of Aqua’s exterior flows into the contemporary interiors. Finishes include floor-to-ceiling windows, tiled entries, full granite kitchens with contemporary wood cabinetry and stainless steel GE™ appliances, and in-home laundry.

Residents enjoy exclusive access to Aqua’s Shore Club, 115,000 square feet of amenities on two full-floors including Chicago’s largest outdoor recreation deck. This atmosphere complements today’s interactive lifestyle. Life is easier at Aqua with the Magellan Rewards program, giving you access to numerous events and preferred partner incentives and the Lakeshore East eco-friendly shuttle.


Aqua is located in the Lakeshore East community, situated where the Chicago Rivers meets Lake Michigan steps away from the best the city has to offer. Right outside your door in the Village Market at Lakeshore East, providing shopping, dining and a variety of services. Retailers include Mariano’s, Cuticle Nail Salon, Mezcalina, Eggy’s Diner and more.

Designed for LEED qualification, the ‘green’ character of Aqua and Lakeshore East is embodied in numerous ways that merit mention, ranging from its location and master plan to the extraordinary and expansive Aqua outdoor deck.

Aqua was shaped by an organic design process. This building is highly sculptural and transforms as one moves further away. We achieved this by creating a series of contours defined by outdoor terraces that extend away from the face of the structure to capture views that would otherwise be unattainable. These terraces are further defined around the facades to produce a sculptural form that responds to site and use. Its three dimensional qualities result in an exciting new addition to Chicago’s skyline.
