  1. Modern - West Loop
    As an up and coming area, Wes Loop has had some major changes and is continuing to grow. Everytime I am in the neighborhood, it looks like another apartment building or condo complex is being built. With restaurant row and a ton of shopping, the neighborhood is definitely the spot to be if you’re looking for something new. The Jax, built in 2020, is located at 1220 W Jackson Ave. It is a high end building with 166 units. They offer studios, one beds, and two beds. These upscale modern apartments offer a wide variety of amenities and are now the standard for West Loop living. 

  1. Brownstones- Gold Coast
    Walking through Gold Coast, you cannot help but marvel at the grand brownstones built back in the late 1800s/early 1900s. The grandeur and antique feel of the outside of these homes fill the tree-lined streets, but do not let that fool you. A majority of these brownstones have been renovated on the inside to keep the history, but update. With chef kitchens, butler pantries, spa-like bathrooms, and master suites that rival 5-star hotels, these brownstone builds are a captivating treasure that only the Gold Coast can boast. 

  1. High Rises- River North
    One truly cannot miss all the high rise buildings lining the river with 360 views of both the river and the lake. The architecture of these buildings is incredible and they only get better on the inside with their amenities. At One Chicago, located on Chicago and State, they offer both rentals and condos for purchase. They have a gym, a grocery store, a coffee shop, and restaurants all located within the building. The perk of living in a high rise is definitely the amenities the building has to offer. From dog walking to dry cleaning, these high rises have more amenities than you could ever imagine.

  1. Vintage - Lincoln Park
    Lincoln Park, named after the 1500 sqft park that borders the lake, spans from North Ave to Diversey. This area is known for its school district and having the most expensive block to live on located at its heart. Similar to the brownstones, Lincoln Park is filled with vintage styled walk-ups that were built over a century ago. These vintage homes have so much character that most of them have been restored to keep a piece of history alive.
