River North’s best apartments – apartment finishes and features

by Joe Zekas on 12/10/13

Earlier posts in our series on the best apartment towers in River North concentrated on their location. We spotlighted the buildings with the best views, the most convenient grocery shopping, the best access to retail shops, public transit, parks and beaches , the expressway grid, the most nearby dining and nightlife, and the shortest walking distance to the Loop.

We then shifted focus to the buildings themselves, beginning with affordability, the topic that’s top-of-mind with many renters, and moving on to the best building amenities, boutique ambiance, and the most pet-friendly environment.

It’s time to move on to the apartments themselves, starting with a look at finishes and features.

The clear winner in this category, taking account of all aspects of the apartments, is Hubbard Place. We might be inclined to grant the building first place based solely on the bath with a view, but it has a lot more to offer.

Units have high ceilings, oak laminate flooring in living areas, floor-to-ceiling windows and bay windows, solar window shades, full-size washer / dryers, stainless steel appliances, kitchen counter seating with pendant lighting, Snaidero cabinetry, quartz counters with glass and stone backsplashes, balconies, great views, a 4-pipe heating and cooling system – and more. The attention to detail is impressive.

Chime in with a comment if you disagree with our selection.

You’ll find links to our objective, visually-rich apartment reviews of River North buildings and links to near real-time availability checks for most of them, at our at-a-glance list, and some tips and advice at our Guide to renting in River North.
