Welcome to the hassle-free, commuter-friendly lifestyle! Living in a city as “hustle-and-bustle” as Chicago, nothing beats the convenience of being steps away from public transportation. The L lines in Chicago are perfect for those seeking a stress-free commute and avoiding possible parking tickets! Picture this: stepping out your door and effortlessly hopping onto the L, whisking you to work or any city hotspot in minutes. PLUS—in the winter, a short walk to the L is a luxury for a commuter. Today, we’re highlighting three of our favorite apartments that are less than a 10-minute walk to different L lines. Say goodbye to parking stress and morning traffic and hello to an overall easier commute. 

Chicago River North Apartment Kitchen

2 Min Walk | River North

Are you looking to be in River North and steps away from the Brown and Purple lines? Don’t worry; it isn’t right beside the rails, so you won’t have any loud train noises. This property is a prime location for L-line commuters, and the units are excellent. Almost every unit has a balcony, offering great views of River North. They also have in-unit laundry, no carpet, gas stoves, and subway tile backsplash. Are you bringing your pet along? This building is pet-friendly, with certain breed restrictions, and has a gated dog park, a doggie spa and lounge. Other unique amenities include an outdoor lap pool, a music room, a library/reading nook, a sauna and wet lounge, and a full fitness center with spin bikes and a boxing simulator. This unit + amenity combo is another bonus aside from being only a 2-minute walk to the Brown and Purple lines.  

Loving the sound of this? They currently have 1 bed/1 baths starting at $2455 and 2 bed/2 baths starting at $3426.

They also have a stunning outdoor pool to lounge around with friends. Speaking of amenities, they also have a heated dog walk, bike storage and repair, outdoor fire pits, and a crazy nice fitness center with the Mirror. The best feature, though is the 6-minute commute to the Red, Orange, Green, Purple, Pink and Brown lines, and the 8-minute walk to the Blue line. Commuting to and from this building is a piece of cake.
