It’s been a long time coming, but the new downtown Chicago apartment inventory has arrived and it is spectacular – and renting quickly. Three of the largest luxury apartment buildings are now open and each offers the downtown Chicago renter amenities and luxuries never seen before in rental buildings.

K2 Chicago was first to open its doors. Fifield Cos. and Wood Partners threw a red carpet, lavish grand opening showcasing professionally decorated apartment models. The three-night event drew over 400 people who took in the newest offering in the West Loop and Fulton Market neighborhood. The Luxury Living Chicago Team loves the Bluetooth sound system installed in each unit. Sync your smartphone, tablet or computer and your playlist is at your apartment’s fingertips.

Coast at Lakeshore East opened shortly after. Magellan Development and NNP Residential have delivered their best property yet! Warm, inviting and modern are the best ways to describe this new property. All units feature floor to ceiling windows with incredible lake and park views, plus HUGE balconies. Certain floor plans, such as the two bedrooms/one bath, have been completely leased  up in just a few short weeks. The Luxury Living Chicago Team has been very busy at Coast.

500 Lake Shore Drive, Related Midwest’s first luxury apartment building in Chicago, has set the bar very high when it comes to true luxury rental apartments. From the moment you park in the garage, the level of service at this property is unprecedented. The grand lobby welcomes you to panoramic views of the lake. The apartments are finished with high-quality, ultra-lux condo finishes such as wide plank hardwood floors (even bedrooms), Snaidero cabinetry and quartz counters. No expense was spared in building out these residences. The building boasts a residents only private Equinox fitness center, plus other top amenities and conveniences. This is Lake Shore Drive living at its finest.

The Luxury Living Chicago Team has quickly become the top rental brokerage for these properties. We are happy to answer any of your questions about which property is right for your price range, move date and lifestyle. Please contact us to discuss your apartment search.
