Curious about the next level of Chicago apartment amenities? Sure, high-rise buildings in the city offer the basics: gyms, shared workspaces, a dog run or pool. But where’s the wow factor?

1 | Old Town 

Right in Old Town, this property is absolutely packed with all kinds of amenities you don’t hear about every day. Big sports person? There is an indoor and outdoor basketball court plus an expansive fitness center to train or workout. In the summer, you can spend your free time soaking up the sun by the pool or catch some shade under the cabanas. You don’t have to miss out on a swim in the winter because they also have an indoor pool. To add even more pizazz, there is a private bowling alley! Who gets to say they have a private bowling alley where they live? Not many of us! Complete with a game room, spa, sauna, steam room, and bocce ball court, they really knock our socks off.

If you are looking to rent a unit here, their best prices right now are a convertible for $2269 and a 1 bed/1 bath unit for $2791. These prices for all their amenities you would actually use is a good investment, if you ask us.

This is a recent new build, and their amenities are INSANE. This is the property you invite your friends over, and they simply don’t want to leave. The real show stopper is the 2-story outdoor space with spectacular city skyline views. There is an outdoor pool, hot tub, hammocks, grill spaces, and many stunning lounge spaces. The party continues inside because they have a sports simulator, a ton of coworking space, a spacious gym with a view, a full-service cafe on the 1st floor, and even an adventure renting station. For the outdoorsy people, this is a super unique feature!You can rent a kayak, scooter, bike, etc., for the day and return them when you are done. As for living here, their units are nothing short of luxury, with modern finishes, in-unit laundry, and incredible views.

Their best-priced units right now are a studio for $2194 and a 1 bed/1 bath for $2528. You can get one month free, and by self-prorating, you can lower those monthly rent costs!

3 | Lakeshore East 

This place left us completely speechless the first time we saw their amenity space, and it has gotten even better! The list could go on and on, but we narrowed it down to the most unique highlights. Are you ready? Just an elevator ride away, you have access to a maker space, a jam room, a golf simulator, an indoor lap pool, an outdoor pool with lounge space, outdoor grills, and a ton of work-from-home space. They also have a theater room, an indoor play area, a splash pad, a huge group fitness room with complimentary fitness classes, and even a conservatory. Talk about UNIQUE!

Wanting to move in already? Their best-priced units right now are a studio for $2020 and a one bed, one bath for $2306. Think about it, yes, you pay this rent each month, but you also have access to all of those fantastic amenities included in that price. So worth it!
