While the average rental price for a downtown Chicago one bedroom apartment is around $1900 a month, there are some individuals who are willing to plunk down a whole lot of cash to score a rental in the best buildings in Chicago.

If you have $46,000 to burn each month, then the most expensive downtown Chicago apartments on the market can be yours.

We ran a search on the Multiple Listing Service and found the three priciest listings available to downtown Chicago renters.
