Aqua‘s condo floors are just now getting their studs and drywall, but many of the tower’s apartments have been ready for occupancy since May. I hadn’t planned to look at the rental floors during my visit on Monday, but NNP Residential Marketing Manager Deanna Bennett was kind enough to give me an impromptu tour of three 27th-floor apartments before I left.
More than 30 percent of Aqua’s 474 apartments are already under lease, and about a quarter are already occupied, Bennett says. Rental units at the tower, located at 225 N Columbus Dr on the New East Side, include studios and convertibles with 564 to 681 square feet, priced from $1,478 to $1,940 a month; one-bedroom / one-baths with 734 to 854 square feet, priced from $1,964 to $2,374 a month; and two-bedroom / two-baths with 1,160 square feet, priced from $3,006 to $3,111 a month.
Utilities including heat, air conditioning, water, gas, Internet, and television are covered by a monthly utility / service amenity fee. Tenants must pay a $450 move-in fee and a $50 application fee prior to moving in. Reserved parking spaces are $305 a month; unreserved parking is $245 a month. Residents with cats and dogs must pay additional, non-refundable fees.
Renters at Aqua have access to the same amenities that are open to the building’s condo owners, such as the building’s recreation deck, three pools, running track, fitness center, spa, business and game rooms, lounges, and party suites.
Check back later this week for video from Aqua’s apartments, its outdoor terrace and indoor amenities, and the neighboring Parkhomes at Lakeshore East.
