Watch video tours of twenty-eight Lake View apartment buildings

You can spend an hour at an apartment rental service waiting to repeat the information you’ve already given over the phone to a rookie agent who will put you in a car and show you rundown, hard-to-rent apartments that may or may not be in Lake View. Or you can spend less than an hour seeing some of Lake View’s best apartment buildings in YoChicago video tours.

What follows are video tours of twenty-eight Lake View apartment buildings professionally managed by companies that collectively manage 1,000s of Lake View apartments. Some of these companies don’t allow rental services to show their apartments and only work directly with renters.

  • BJB Properties
  • Cagan Management
  • Planned Property Management
  • Our video tours span properties ranging from walk-ups and lofts to vintage and contemporary mid-rise elevator buildings to high-rises fronting the park. The properties all have nicely renovated apartments ranging from studios to 3-bedrooms, and all are in desirable locations. Following each video is a link to the property’s website, where you’ll typically find more pictures and floor plans.

    YoChicago video tours are full-motion, high-res narrated video with no annoying music. When we mention local attractions and dining and nightlife options, they’re truly local – within a block or two of the property.
