Gold Coast / River North apartments near three charming parks

Chestnut Place, 850 N State St, is on the border of the Gold Coast and River North neighborhoods in a steps-to-everything location.

Park space is scarce in River North, but three of the north side’s most charming small parks are a short stroll from Chestnut Place.

Washington Square Park, pictured above. Is a short block west. It’s a great scene for relaxing in the shade and enjoying the fountain.

Connors Park, a block east of Chestnut Place, is a tree-shaded pocket-park with Argo Tea at its center.



The triangular Mariano Park, a few short blocks north of Chestnut Place, is flanked by sidewalk cafés, and one of the best dining, drinking and people-watching scenes you’ll find anywhere.


For more active pursuits, Chestnut Place is within easy walking distance of Oak Street Beach and Lake Shore Park.

The common areas and many of the apartments at Chestnut Place are undergoing renovation. All of the 1- and 2-bedroom apartments are corner units with good south views due to the building’s unusual saw-tooth configuration.

New residents can opt for a renovated apartment or a “classic” apartment at a lower price-point. Floor plans and near real-time availability info can be accessed online.
