The Gold Coast, Near North and Old Town neighborhoods have a decidedly more residential feel than other downtown Chicago neighborhoods, with great, pedestrian-scale vintage architecture side-by-side with the newer buildings and high-rises.
River North has a broad selection of new and nearly-new loft condos and condo and rental high-rises, and a smattering of vintage walk-ups, higher-priced townhomes and single-families. Many of the buildings offer dramatic skyline views including 3 new rental high-rises opened in 2010. These communities and others are listed and linked on our Guide to renting in Chicago’s River North.
There are hundreds of condos and a few townhomes available for rent in Streeterville, the neighborhood bounded by the river, the lake, Michigan Avenue and Walton Street. We’ve listed the apartment towers with links to their websites and reviews, when available.
