LifeStart, the commercial real estate industry's leading provider of corporate fitness / wellness solutions announced today its selection by Zeller Realty Group, to provide management services for the new state of the art fitness center located at 401 North Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Illinois.

At the gateway where the Magnificent Mile meets the Loop, 401 North Michigan raises the bar for Chicago office properties. Discover why this exceptional building attracts the elite of the city's business community.  This 737,308 square foot, 35-story Class A office tower is located within a unique, mixed-use environment featuring office, hospitality, dining, entertainment, residential and retail uses.

Zeller Realty Group (“ZRG”) acquired 401 North Michigan in November 2001 from the building’s original owner, Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States. ZRG maintains the Skidmore, Owings and Merrill-designed building at the highest level, competing with the newest developments, as evidenced by the many upgrades to the building, including the lobby, conference center & tenant lounge, the concourse level, Pine Street Kitchen and of course, its highly anticipated brand new fitness center.

​LifeStart will power the new 7,500 square foot fitness center that is part of the newly renovated tenant amenities.  The center is equipped with state of the art Precor Preva cardio equipment (with integrated networked monitors capable of providing hundreds of HD channels), strength equipment, a group exercise studio, functional training equipment, massage studio and executive level locker rooms and amenities.  LifeStart will provide cutting-edge programs and services to the tenants of 401 North Michigan, which are designed to support a healthy, active lifestyle for employees while they are at work.
