Reside on Roscoe apartments, 532 W Roscoe St, Lakeview East

Reside on Roscoe is a 5-story, 70-unit contemporary elevator building at 532 W Roscoe St in the Lakeview East neighborhood a block from Lake Shore Drive. It was built in 1970.

The property was substantially renovated after being acquired by an affiliate of Reside Living.

Parks, recreation. Reside on Roscoe residents have convenient access to public parks and recreational activities.

The 1,200-acre Lincoln Park, one of the great public spaces in America, is less than a block east of Reside on Roscoe. Just to the north in the park you’ll find a playground, the 9-hole Sydney Marovitz golf course, tennis courts and ball fields and a picnic field. The dog beach at Belmont Harbor is a block south. A nearby pedestrian underpass provides access to the 18-mile lakefront trail.

Lincoln Park has almost every recreational amenity imaginable, from an archery range to a great zoo.

Transportation. Reside on Roscoe has good access to bus transportation, but it’s a bit of a hike to CTA trains.

A variety of CTA bus routes traverse the area. The #36 Broadway bus on Broadway, travels into the Loop. The CTA Red Line stop at Addison and the Red, Brown and Purple stop at Belmont are about a 13- and 15- minute walk, respectively from the property.

Reside on Roscoe residents have the #146 and #151 CTA bus stop on Lake Shore Drive at the east end of the block. The 146 runs express to the 900 Shops, anchored by Bloomingdale’s, on Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile, and then on to the Loop. The 151 also travels into the Loop.

The nearest vehicle access to outer Lake Shore Drive is via Belmont Ave (3200 N) or Irving Park Rd (4000 N). Crosstown access to I-90/94 and the city’s expressway grid is inconvenient from this location, and can be time-consuming before and after Cubs’ games.

Zipcar car-sharing locations and DIVVY bike stations are nearby.
