Park space is scarce in River North, but three of the north side’s most charming small parks are a short stroll from Chestnut Place.
Washington Square Park, pictured above. Is a short block west. It’s a great scene for relaxing in the shade and enjoying the fountain.
Connors Park, a block east of Chestnut Place, is a tree-shaded pocket-park with Argo Tea at its center.
The triangular Mariano Park, a few short blocks north of Chestnut Place, is flanked by sidewalk cafés, and one of the best dining, drinking and people-watching scenes you’ll find anywhere.
The common areas and many of the apartments at Chestnut Place are undergoing renovation. All of the 1- and 2-bedroom apartments are corner units with good south views due to the building’s unusual saw-tooth configuration.
New residents can opt for a renovated apartment or a “classic” apartment at a lower price-point. Floor plans and near real-time availability info can be accessed online.
