Eleven40 residents have easy access to a number of local colleges and universities, including DePaul, Roosevelt, Columbia, The Art Institutes and the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Shopping. Residents at Eleven40 have convenient access to grocery shopping.

Trader Joe’s is across the street Jewel-Osco is just south on Wabash.

Target and Whole Foods are a bit further west along Roosevelt Rd, and there is a Mariano’s on Clark St. There are also several convenience stores in the immediate area. There are full-service pharmacies in the Jewel and Target, and a Walgreens is a short block west on Roosevelt Rd.

The South Loop has long had a rap as being under-retailed, but that’s changing as the Shops at Roosevelt Collection rapidly fills its space.

There’s a large and growing cluster of big-box shops just west of the river along Roosevelt Rd, and State Street shops and Magnificent Mile shops are a few minutes’ away.

Dining, nightlife.
There are scores of dining and nightlife options within a few blocks’ walk of Eleven40, and the number is growing.

Long-time local favorites Gioco and Flo & Santos are just over a block from the building.


Breakfast options are abundant, but you can expect a weekend wait at the Bongo Room, Eleven City Diner, and Yolk.


Five Guys is next door. Jimmy John’s, Jersey Mike’s and Potbelly are around the corner.

Stan's Donuts, Roosevelt Rd, Chicago

Sports enthusiasts can grab a donut around the corner and wash it down with a brew at Wabash Tap or The Scout, neighborhood hangouts that are packed during Bears games.

Blues lovers can head a few blocks north to Buddy Guy’s Legends.

We haven’t ventured more than a few blocks from Eleven40 – and we haven’t listed everything that’s nearby. You’ll find a wide variety of dining and nightlife options in the immediate neighborhood.

Parks, recreation. Grant Park, “Chicago’s front yard,” is a short block east of Eleven40.

Spanning nearly half a square mile, the 319-acre park accommodates a wide range of active recreational pursuits and spots for quiet contemplation.


Millennium Park, at the North end of Grant Park, is one of the most exciting and architecturally interesting public spaces in the country. Eleven40 residents will pass the Art Institute on the way to Millennium Park.

Northerly Island beach is a short bike ride from Eleven40.

Transportation. Public transportation from the location is excellent.

The CTA’s Roosevelt Road station has Red, Green and Orange Line stops for easy access to north, south and west side locations and to Midway Airport.

A wide variety of CTA bus routes criss-cross the area, with stops near the building.

Taxi service is near-instantaneous at the front door. Zipcar and Enterprise CarShare locations are nearby.

I-90/94 and I-290 can generally be reached within a few minutes. Lake Shore Drive access is nearby.

The competition

Rentals are typically available in a number of nearby condo buildings, sometimes at lower rents than in the managed apartment buildings. The trade-off is that the condo buildings typically offer fewer amenities and a lower-level of finishes.
