New East Side Apartment Views

Wandering into the Lakeshore East neighborhood, it’s easy to think you’ve wandered into  a “lost valley” community of some kind. Even though it’s only steps from the Loop proper and right off of Michigan Avenue, the New East Side boasts opens up into luxury riddled enclave boasting an expansive 6-acre park, multiple high-end apartment towers, gourmet coffee shops, foodie friendly restaurants, and even a Mariano’s market. In the community’s Wi-Fi accessible park, residents spend the summer months working and relaxing in the sun, playing with pets, and enjoying the convenience of the surrounding amenities.

This emerging area has welcomed many high-rise rental complexes over the last ten years and has become a favorite among downtown apartment hunters thanks to its laid back atmosphere and its proximity to The Loop proper. It’s within easy walking distance of some of Chicago’s major employers and many of its major landmarks including Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier, North Avenue Beach Lake Michigan, Museum Campus and the Chicago Riverwalk. Lakeshore East truly is a walker’s paradise. The renowned Chicago Pedway, a walkway under the city, connects the community with the Loop and provides a haven for residents commuting during the city’s brutal winter months. Shuttles also provide a convenient means of transport between the Loop and the Near East Side.

If you are gearing up for a move into The Loop, there are a range of apartments and apartment styles and features to choose from in Lakeshore East. Rental prices range from $1300-$5000 depending on whether you’re interested in a studio, one bedroom or two-bedroom, features, amenities, and seasonal demand. The important thing to remember, though, is that no matter where you decide to rent on the Near East Side, you can expect a truly luxurious living experience!
