The 2016 list of new downtown Chicago apartments

Editor’s note: The 2017 list is now available.

If you want to experience the thrill of moving into a never-lived-in downtown Chicago apartment, we’ve got your list.

The list includes just over 7,000 apartments in 24 buildings. Some of the buildings opened last year and still have first-occupancy units; some have recently opened; some are about to begin pre-leasing; and others will begin leasing later this year for 2017 occupancy.

The buildings are presented in order of their opening date, oldest first. First occupancy dates are estimates only for projects that have not begun pre-leasing. Linked reviews provide additional info for each building, and video tours of a number of the buildings.
