The location

Reside at 2525 is on a busy commercial street toward the north end of the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

It’s an attractive location, close to the park and a wide selection of bars, restaurants and neighborhood shops.

Shopping. Reside at 2525 has reasonably good proximity to grocery shopping.


Trader Joe’s on Diversey and Walmart Neighborhood Market on Broadway are a few short blocks from the building. The Walmart has a pharmacy and there’s also a Walgreens at Clark and Diversey. A 7-Eleven convenience store is a few doors north of the building.

Anyone setting up housekeeping for the first time will appreciate having Affordable Portables across the street and Bed Bath & Beyond a few short blocks north.

Dining, nightlife, entertainment.
You’ll find a good selection of bars and restaurants along Clark St in either direction from the building, and along Diversey and Broadway just north of the building.


Starbucks is in the building. Einstein Bros Bagels is across the street, and Panera Bread is a short walk north of Reside at 2525.

Mickey’s is a local favorite for summertime people-watching on Clark St.

Parks, recreation.
Lincoln Park has too many attractions to list.


The Zoo, the Conservatory and its gardens, the landmark Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and other Lincoln Park draws are within a few blocks of the building.

Active recreation opportunities are abundant, some of them unexpected. Fly fishing lessons, for example, are available at nearby North Pond in the park and the golf driving range at Diversey is open year-round.

If your idea of active recreation is that it’s something well worth watching, you can survey the beach volleyball scene from a reclining position.

Transportation. Reside at 2525’s access to public transportation is good, but not great.

The #36 Broadway and #22 Clark buses stop across the street and several more bus routes are a short distance away in the park. The nearest CTA train stops are a 15-minute walk from Reside at 2525.

Taxi service is nearly always available outside the building. Several Zipcar car-sharing locations are nearby and DIVVY bikes are a short block north.

Access to I-90/94 and the city’s expressway grid is inconvenient, and can be a source of misery during peak hours.

The competition

Rentals are typically available in a number of nearby condo buildings, sometimes at sharply lower rents than in the managed apartment buildings.
