BridgeStreet, the Leading Provider of Serviced Apartments,
Partners with Urban Lux Chicago

Strategic Partnership with Chicago's Luxury Housing Provider combines local knowledge with global reach

HERNDON, VA, July 19, 2011 BridgeStreet®, the leading international provider of residences, serviced apartments and suites, today announced that it has partnered with Urban Lux, Chicago's leading luxury apartment leasing agency, to combine its global reach with local expertise.  The partnership was formed in an effort to execute the expansion of its offerings in the Downtown Chicago market. The partnership enables BridgeStreet to provide both serviced apartments and long-term conventional housing for corporate travelers spending time in or relocating to Chicago.
 
Both firms share a passion for the housing industry and a visionary approach to developing unique service offerings. BridgeStreet’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards of product and service excellence in the corporate housing industry continues to attract and retain clients seeking a seamless relocation package. "It’s part of our ongoing effort to consistently exceed customer expectations and optimize the corporate travel experience.  Our unique partnership with Urban Lux allows us to offer an end-to-end solution for our relocation clients by providing excellent service in both short-term serviced apartments and long-term conventional rentals," says John Beltz, BridgeStreet’s Vice President for the Midwest.

Extended business travel and relocation are a necessity in every industry and an essential part of accomplishing growth and increasing productivity. "Together, we will be better positioned to provide our customers with an extremely valuable business tool that helps Human Resources Departments and Global Mobility Managers to better serve their employees and clients," says Abram Nelson, President and CEO of Urban Lux, Chicago. The partnership between BridgeStreet and Urban Lux was formed to help differentiate themselves among other companies, and to eliminate the traditional obstacles and costs of relocations, while mitigating the real business loss of employees' diminished productivity while having to relocate themselves.

Operating in over 60 countries, BridgeStreet manages a number of mixed-used properties; including its flagship Chicago location at State & Grand. The multi-purpose, high-rise building combines 145 apartments on top of a four-star, boutique hotel and trend-setting bar and restaurant in the vibrant River North neighborhood.
