Large, updated apartments in Lakeview East

The mid-century modern buildings of the 60s and 70s have a great advantage over newer buildings: large apartments with excellent closet space.

These buildings typically offer fewer common-area amenities than the new high-rises, but compensate with superior locations and lower rents.

Newcomers to Chicago especially savor the vibe in Lakeview East, a neighborhood that hasn’t seen new apartment construction in decades but that’s throbbing with shops, nightlife, dining, the lakefront and, of course, Wrigley Field.

Join Planned Property‘s Dan McDonough for a look at a large 1-bedroom apartment at 500 W Belmont, a boutique 8-units-per-floor building that also has convertible studios available for rent.
