Amazing – a week has passed without anyone’s having announced a new high-rise rental tower in the River North neighborhood. The cranes atop the two newest rental high-rises in River North, AMLI River North and Hubbard Place, are visible in the above view. Both buildings are scheduled to open for occupancy late this summer or early fall.
If you want to rent an apartment in River North before then, you can see all of your managed apartment building options on YoChicago’s River North availability list, below.
There are currently only thirteen large apartment complexes in River North, and we’ve listed all of them in this Google spreadsheet, and checked what’s available for rent, and what the rents are, in almost all of them. The spreadsheet is accurate as of the close of business yesterday. Rents listed are for 12-month leases for apartments available now through next month. All of the buildings accept cats, and all but three accept dogs subject, in most cases, to weight and breed restrictions.
Our spreadsheet contains links to each building, links to videos where available, and links to near real-time availability checks for the buildings that offer that feature. The spreadsheet, which is updated weekly, also has links to several reputable major brokerage sites (clients of our parent firm) where you can search MLS-listed condos and townhomes available for rent. Beyond those options there are only a few small rental buildings in River North, with rare availabilities.
If you’ve been searching Craigslist for River North apartments you already know you’re wasting a lot of time and encountering a lot of bait-and-switch ads. You’re unlikely to find anything at Craigslist that you won’t find through Yo’s list.
