The South Loop’s best apartments – studio / convertible floor plan

by Joe Zekas on 12/30/13

Earlier posts in our series on the best apartment towers in the South Loop concentrated on their location. We spotlighted the South Loop apartment buildings with the best views, the most convenient grocery shopping, the best access to public transit, parks and beaches, retail shoppingthe expressway grid, dining and nightlife, retail shopping, and the shortest walk 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 pet-friendliness.

In our final group of posts, we turned our attention to the apartments, beginning with the buildings with the best apartment finishes and features and private outdoor space.

The “Sporty” studio plan at AMLI 900 is a standout.

Most buildings would market this plan as a convertible due to its well-defined and semi-private sleeping area.

The apartment has a balcony, a kitchen with generous cabinet and counter space and an in-unit washer / dryer. Closet space is in the average range for studios. The living / dining area has space for a table and a functional furniture layout.

Available units were recently renting for $1,540 to $1,575 a month.

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

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