Views. At 11 stories AMLI South Loop won’t be a “view property,” but some of the units will offer interesting vistas from view corridors over open space to the east and west.
Amenities, services, policies
At this time little information about the amenities package at the buildings is available. The south building will have an amenities deck with a pool and the north building will have a sun deck.
The north building will have 9,000 square feet of ground-level retail space.
With 280 parking spaces for 398 units, AMLI South Loop has an unusually high parking ratio among the new downtown apartment buildings. The one-story parking decks compare favorably with the multi-level ones at many high-rises.
AMLI South Loop has a near-Loop location at the edge of the Printers Row neighborhood and the landmark Printing House Row District. It’s within easy walking distance of many of the downtown colleges and universities and cultural attractions.
Clark Street at the property’s location becomes a traffic-friendly raceway whose east side is blighted by a long brick-and-block wall that isolates Dearborn Park from the east-west street grid and magnifies the travel time to many nearby destinations. Metra rail tracks border the property on the west.
Walk Score gives the location a “Walker’s Paradise” rating of 100 and a “Rider’s Paradise” transit score of 100.
Shopping. The nearest full-service grocery, Target, is a few blocks south along Clark St.
Jewel and Trader Joe’s are two blocks east of the Target on Roosevelt Rd and a Whole Foods Market and Dominick’s are across the river off Roosevelt Rd. All of the locations have parking. Walgreen’s and CVS have nearby pharmacies and there are pharmacies in the Jewel and Target.
There are a number of convenience stores close to AMLI South Loop, including Urban Pantry just to the north on Clark St.
Dining, nightlife. The South Loop isn’t known as a dining destination, but it does have a strong selection of casual, come-back-often neighborhood hangouts that are popular with locals.
Parks, recreation. Grant Park is less than half a mile east of the property.
Dearborn Park, a tree-shrouded oasis with a fitness course, is around the corner from AMLI, and there’s a pleasant plaza with a small, seasonal farmers market in nearby Printers Row.
The three tennis courts at Roosevelt Park serve up the only active outdoor recreation space in the immediate area.
The LaSalle St Blue Line stop, just northwest of the property, connects to O’Hare Airport. A block further north is the LaSalle / Van Buren stop, serving four CTA lines, including an Orange Line connection to Midway Airport.
Metra’s LaSalle Street Station, serving the south side and south suburbs, is two blocks north of AMLI.
Congress Pkwy, two blocks to the north, provides very convenient access to and from the city’s expressway grid and to Lake Shore Drive.
Rentals are typically available in a number of nearby condo buildings, sometimes at sharply lower rents than in the managed apartment buildings.
