About this listing
Perfect base for exploring Chicago as a tourist while living like a local. Location key for commuting, shopping, eating, and meeting others.
This "Jr One Bedroom" space is about 500 Sq Feet. The bedroom (double size bed) is separated from the living room via a wall partition (w/out door) to allow for an abundance of light from the wall of windows overlooking the private terrace.
Ideal location just 10 minutes commute to Downtown, 12 blocks from Michigan Ave, 3 blocks from the Lake and Lincoln Park, and an abundance of bus and train lines within steps of the front door. Neighborhood and chain restaurants, bars, markets all within a few blocks too!

Entire apartment for your enjoyment.
Rooftop- weather permitting- on 30th floor.
