Amenities, services, policies
455 West Wellington has limited amenities: a laundry room and on-site covered parking.
Cats are welcome; dogs aren’t.
455 West Wellington is on a quiet one-way residential street in Lakeview East, just north of the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
The location is attractive: close to the park and a wide selection of bars, restaurants and neighborhood shops, and three short blocks from Saint Joseph Hospital.
Shopping. 455 West Wellington has good proximity to grocery shopping.
Dining, nightlife, entertainment.
There’s a huge variety of bars, restaurants and nightlife options within a short walk of the building.
Broadway, a block west of the building, is a pedestrian-friendly strip with dozens of eateries, bars and locally-owned retail shops.
Duffy’s Tavern, Pars Cove and Miss Asia are just a few of the venues you’ll find clustered along Diversey two short blocks south of the building. The popular Yolk opened recently at Pine Grove and Diversey. Expect a wait for breakfast on weekends.
Chipotle, Starbucks, Potbelly and Panera are also on Diversey.
Century Centre Cinema is just north of Diversey on Clark St, a few blocks away.
Lincoln Park, which is a short walk east of 455 West Wellington, has too many attractions to list.
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. 455 West Wellington has good access to public transportation.
The #151 bus stops just east of the building and connects to the Loop via Michigan Ave. Other bus routes along Diversey and Broadway are a short walk from the building.
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 building has easy access to Lake Shore Drive.
Rentals are also typically available in a number of nearby condo buildings.
