What it costs to rent in River North

by Joe Zekas on 6/21/13

In River North apartment news this week, a new 188-unit tower at 212 W Erie has landed a $46 million construction loan and a 295-unit, 35-story project at Chicago and LaSalle apparently has gained neighborhood approval.

If you’re looking to rent an apartment in River North, you can see all of your managed apartment building options on YoChicago’s availability list, below.

Apart from the new buildings, there are currently only twelve large apartment complexes in River North, and we’ve listed all of them in this Google spreadsheet, and checked what’s available for rent, and what the rents are, in almost all of them. The spreadsheet is accurate as of the close of business yesterday. Rents listed are for 12-month leases for apartments available now through next month. All of the buildings accept cats, and all but three accept dogs subject, in most cases, to weight and breed restrictions.

Our spreadsheet contains links to each building, links to videos where available, and links to near real-time availability checks for the buildings that offer that feature. The spreadsheet, which is updated weekly, also has links to several reputable major brokerage sites (clients of our parent firm) where you can search MLS-listed condos and townhomes available for rent. Beyond those options there are only a few small rental buildings in River North, with rare availabilities.

If you’ve been searching Craigslist for River North apartments you already know you’re wasting a lot of time and encountering a lot of bait-and-switch ads. You’re unlikely to find anything at Craigslist that you won’t find through Yo’s list.

If you’re considering working with a rental service / finder, consider the twenty-five things rental services won’t tell you. Consult our do-not-call list for the rental services – virtually all of them – that engage in deceptive behavior, or worse.

We think there’s no faster or easier way to find your next apartment in River North than our availability list. If you know someone who’s looking to rent in River North, send them a link to this post or to the spreadsheet.
