Amenities, services, policies

There is an on-site laundry room and on-site covered and uncovered parking. Street parking is scarce in the area.

The building has on-site 24-hour maintenance and welcomes cats, but not dogs.

The location

2630 N Hampden is on a quiet tree-lined street near the border of Lincoln Park and Lakeview. It’s an attractive, convenient location, close to the park and a wide selection of bars, restaurants and neighborhood shops, and five blocks from Saint Joseph Hospital. Wrigley Field, Boystown and other attractions are within walking distance.

Shopping. 2630 N Hampden has good proximity to grocery shopping.

There’s a 7-Eleven two blocks away.

Trader Joe’s on Diversey and Walmart Neighborhood Market on Broadway are a few short blocks from the building. The Walmart has a pharmacy and there’s also a Walgreens at Clark and Diversey.

Anyone setting up housekeeping for the first time will appreciate Bed Bath & Beyond a short walk away.

Dining, nightlife, entertainment.

There’s a good selection of bars and restaurants along Clark, Broadway and Diversey, and nearby in the park.

The popular Yolk opened recently in a building a block north of the property. Expect a wait for breakfast on weekends.

Yakzies is a block north, and The Chipmunks and a number of other venues are just to the east of these bars.

Duffy’s Tavern, Pars Cove and Miss Asia are just a few of the venues you’ll find clustered along Diversey east of Hampden Court.

Chipotle, Starbucks and Potbelly are also on Diversey, just a few blocks north and west of 2630 N Hampden.

Grill in the Park is a little-noticed spot to grab a quick bite when the weather’s good. The North Pond is a highly-rated restaurant in a tranquil, beautiful setting.

Century Centre Cinema is just north of Diversey on Clark St.

Parks, recreation.

Lincoln Park has too many attractions to list.

The Zoo, the Conservatory and its gardens, the landmark Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and other Lincoln Park draws are all within a half-dozen blocks of the building.

Active recreation opportunities are abundant, some of them unexpected. Fly fishing lessons, for example, are available at nearby North Pond in the park and the golf driving range at Diversey is open year-round. There are clay tennis courts and miniature golf adjacent to the driving range. With a little bit of luck you might strike up a friendship with someone who has a boat in Diversey Harbor.

The park also offers endless opportunities for quiet relaxation.

Transportation. 2630 N Hampden’s access to public transportation is good, but not great.

The #151 bus, a block east, connects to the Loop via Michigan Ave. The #22 Clark and #36 Broadway buses are two short blocks west, and also connect to the Loop.

The nearest CTA train stop, at Diversey, is a 15-minute walk from 2630 N Hampden.

Taxi service is nearly always available near the building. Several Zipcar car-sharing locations are nearby.

Access to I-90/94 and the city’s expressway grid is inconvenient, and can be a source of major misery during peak hours.

The competition

You’ll find additional options at YoChicago’s Lincoln Park apartment guide.

Rentals are typically available in a number of nearby condo buildings, sometimes at lower rents than in the managed apartment buildings.
