Aurélien has an excellent Near North Side location in River North.
Loyola University’s Water Tower campus is half a mile from the property and Loyola’s new Quinlan School of Business is three blocks east of the building. Northwestern and Lurie Children’s hospitals are a short walk further east.
Shopping. Residents of Aurélien will enjoy convenient access to grocery shopping.
There’s a locally-owned Potash Markets two blocks away.
Four short blocks southeast is what Whole Foods bills as its “Gold Coast store” despite its River North location.
The nearest of several nearby Starbucks is four blocks east at State and Chestnut.
The 900 North Michigan shops, anchored by Bloomingdale’s, Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile shops, and Water Tower Place are a few blocks to the east. Oak Street boutiques are a few blocks to the north.
Dining, nightlife. Head a few short blocks north on State St and you’re in one of the most vibrant restaurant clusters in Chicago – the so-called Viagra Triangle.
Locals just call it “the triangle,” after the shape of Mariano Park.
Just past Mariano Park, from whose shape the triangle derives its moniker, is the storied Division Street strip, home to Mothers, the legendary Butch McGuire’s and more than a dozen other establishments.
If you head south from Aurélien, you’ll pass a pleasant strip to the east along Chicago Ave before entering the thriving River North restaurant and nightlife scene.
Parks, recreation. Residents of Aurélien will have limited access to parks and recreational opportunities. The nearest park with facilities for active play is more than a half-mile from the building.
Transportation. Public transportation is excellent.
The location has fairly quick access to I-90/94 and the city’s expressway grid via the Ontario St / Ohio St on / off ramps.
A Zipcar car-sharing location is nearby. Taxi service is readily available 24/7.
