A fanciful environment at the new State & Chestnut apartments http://yochicago.com/a-fanciful-environment-at-the-new-state-chestnut-apartments/40583/ http://yochicago.com/a-fanciful-environment-at-the-new-state-chestnut-apartments/40583/#comments Tue, 28 Jul 2015 05:10:42 +0000 sponsored post http://yochicago.com/?p=40583

The lobby at the new State & Chestnut apartment tower preps you for the fanciful environment you’re about to enter.

The playful, whimsical sensibility continues into the elevator lobby.

Step off the elevator on the 7th floor, and the color palette becomes much more subdued, with only a splash of red to hint at what lies beyond.

The colors begin to pop again as you head into the resident lounge. Rich, dark woods are reminiscent of an established private club, but the furnishings suggest that a new generation has taken over.

The center portion of the first part of the resident lounge is flanked by areas with a more subdued air.


The lounge continues into areas that can host a study meeting, provide a quiet space to curl up with a book or a tablet, or engage in a friendly game of pool.


The club-like aura re-emerges along a window wall that looks out onto a lushly landscaped terrace.

There’s much, much more to see on the 7th floor of State Chestnut, and on the 35th floor rooftop level. Why not see it all in person?

An on-site leasing center is open daily. The office has been busy, so it’s a good idea to check rent and availability of your preferred apartment and schedule an appointment before visiting.

State & Chestnut is a pet-friendly, smoke-free, full-amenity tower with 24/7 door staff in a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly, steps-to-everything location. Floor plans and near real-time availability info can be accessed online.

In Lincoln Park and Lakeview, a rental service is worse than useless http://yochicago.com/in-lincoln-park-and-lakeview-a-rental-service-is-worse-than-useless/40507/ http://yochicago.com/in-lincoln-park-and-lakeview-a-rental-service-is-worse-than-useless/40507/#comments Tue, 21 Jul 2015 05:07:11 +0000 Joe Zekas http://yochicago.com/?p=40507

One of the many things that Chicago rental services don’t want you to know is that there are many properties that they can’t or won’t show you.

The “can’t show” roster includes the many popular properties that don’t pay brokers a commission and won’t allow them to show renters around.

The “won’t show” list comprises properties that pay rental services less than a full commission. The rental services will often go through hilarious contortions explaining why it isn’t in a renter’s best interest to see those properties.

The properties that rental services can’t and won’t show you are often among the very best values in the neighborhood. That makes rental services worse than useless, before even taking into consideration the abusive and dishonest tactics that have earned them many negative reviews.

The rental market in Lincoln Park and Lakeview is tight, and that’s been leading a growing number of properties to cut back on or cut out their cooperation with rental services.
