EMME is located in Chicago’s West Loop Gateway neighborhood. Historically Chicago’s meatpacking district, much of the neighborhood’s historic past remains, with gritty loft warehouses and cobblestone streets. Randolph Street, which is anchored at one end by EMME, is one of the strongest restaurant corridors in the city, with art galleries, beautiful public parks and excellent schools. We use our Principles of Place to create vibrant and inspiring places for people. By leveraging sustainability, community and smart design, we can reduce environmental impacts associated with the construction and operations of our buildings while providing high quality community-oriented experiences for our tenants.
