Where are Chicago’s best singles apartments?

If you time-travel back to the 70s and look for an apartment you’ll be bombarded by come-ons to live where there’s a “swinging singles scene.” One Gold Coast building took the theme to the extreme, naming itself The Satyr.

Most apartment marketing today avoids a blatant “party pad” approach to attracting tenants, with the notable exception of Planned Property videos promoting its Gold Coast buildings, including the one above for 1111 N Dearborn.


The two-tower, 848-unit Alta at K Station has a reputation as a party venue, and a crowded pool to buttress it. Is the reputation deserved? Is it a plus or a minus for moving there?

Which Chicago apartment buildings have the best spots for singles to mingle?
