Earlier posts in our series on the best Streeterville apartments focused on location. We spotlighted the buildings with the best views and most convenient access to grocery shopping, bars and restaurants, retail shops, public transportation, parks and beaches and the expressway grid, and the shortest walk to the Loop.
We then switched from location to the buildings themselves, beginning with the topic of affordability.
If price and location aren’t your primary concerns and your priority is finding the building with the best suite of common-area amenities, the clear winner in this category is 500 Lake Shore Drive. Head over to the Chicago Architecture Blog for a lengthy look at the building’s amenities and visit the building’s Flickr album for higher-quality images of the amenities.
If you disagree with our selections, chime in with a comment.
You’ll find links to our objective, visually-rich apartment reviews of Streeterville buildings, and links to near real-time availability checks for most of the buildings, at our Near North at-a-glance list, and some tips and advice at our Guide to renting in Streeterville.
