The enduring appeal of living in Old Town

Old Town was the neighborhood of choice in the 60s and 70s when the north side of Chicago began its decades-long and continuing revitalization.

Throughout the years it remained the neighborhood of choice for Chicagoans who wanted to live in a lively, low-density, pedestrian-friendly, architecturally diverse environment close to one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants, bars, parks, Oak Street Beach and public transit.

When 1225 Old Town opened just over two years ago residents who wanted a new, full-amenity high-rise no longer had to settle for a different neighborhood.

1225 Old Town offers a mix of studio to 3-bedroom apartments with hardwood floors, sleek kitchens with granite counters, in-unit washer / dryers and private balconies. The amenities suite includes a rooftop pool and sundeck with gas grills, a resident lounge, a business café, a demonstration kitchen, a fully-equipped fitness room, a media room and a rooftop dog run.

The upscale Plum Market and Intelligentsia coffee are in the building, and Starbucks is across the street.

What really sets 1225 Old Town apart can be summarized in two words: Wells Street.

Walking Wells Street’s broad sidewalks and getting to know the businesses that line the street is a source of continuing delight for Old Town newcomers and old-timers.

If you haven’t spent some time on Wells Street, you’ve missed something very special.
