The mid-century modern buildings of the 60s and 70s have one great advantage over newer buildings: large apartments with excellent closet space.
These buildings typically offer fewer common-area amenities than the new high-rises but compensate with far superior locations and lower rents.
Newcomers to Chicago especially savor the vibe in Lakeview East, a neighborhood that hasn’t seen new apartment construction in decades but that’s throbbing with shops, nightlife, dining, the lakefront and, of course, Wrigley Field.
Join Planned Property’s Dan McDonough in the video for a look at a large 1-bedroom apartment at 500 W Belmont, a boutique 8-units-per-floor building that also has convertible studios available for rent.
A 1-bedroom is available in the building at a $250 discount on the first month’s rent. Renters who schedule an appointment online receive an additional $100 rent credit.
Planned Property Management owns and manages several thousand apartments in prime Gold Coast, Lincoln Park and Lake View locations.
