Family-friendly apartments on the New East Side

by Joe Zekas on 3/18/14

North Harbor Tower is a 55-story, 600-unit apartment tower in Chicago’s New East Side neighborhood.

The building has a number of features that make it unusually attractive to families with children.

Schools are important to families, and the building is within the attendance boundaries of Ogden Elementary School, one of the most highly-rated public schools in the city, and there’s door-to-door bus service from the building to Ogden. The K-8 phase of a new K-12 GEMS World Academy will open this fall at Lakeshore East, across the park from North Harbor Tower. Grades 9-12 will open in the fall of 2015. The Chalk Preschool at Lakeshore East serves children ages 2-5.

British Swim School classes in the building’s indoor pool begin with “tadpoles” aged 3 months and up.

North Harbor Tower has immediate proximity to a variety of parks that will engage and delight kids day after day throughout the year, and close proximity to the 18-mile long Lakefront Trail, the Riverwalk, the Cultural Center, the Art Institute, the Museum Campus and downtown Chicago’s array of college and university campuses.

The building has a full suite of amenities, 24/7 door staff, and many of the building’s apartments are unusually spacious, with two-bedrooms ranging up to 1,465 square feet and three-bedrooms spanning nearly 1,800 square feet.

Last, but far from least, a short walk or commute to the office maximizes family time.

Note: North Harbor Tower is an advertising sponsor. You can see more of the building and its location in our detailed apartment review.
