Here are 7 helpful facts to know about all the new apartments in Chicago:

Fact 1: There are 6,600 brand new apartments in 33 different buildings opening in 2017.

Fact 2: Each apartment building is at a different stage of development. Consequently, renters should check construction times to determine first available move-in dates as they will vary.

Fact 3: Not all new apartments will be downtown. Look for many new options in popular Chicago neighborhoods like Bucktown, Logan Square, and Evanston.

Fact 4: With the record number of available apartments, renters could feel “apartment FOMO.”However, there is no need to see every single property. Renters should narrow the search by location, price, and availability. It is our recommendation to create a shortlist, which will help streamline the search.

Fact 5: The new apartments will come standard with hard surface flooring, upgraded kitchens and washer/dryer in unit.

Fact 6: Most noteworthy is the high number of transit-oriented developments (TOD) in Chicago. TODs are highly walkable, urban developments centered around public transportation which makes them attractive to renters who do not own a car.

Fact 7: There will be more new apartments coming after 2017. This is the first wave of new apartment inventory to hit the Chicago market. There are other apartment developments currently under construction with delivery dates after 2017. Chicago renters will have lots of apartment options over the next few years.
