South Loop

Penthouse 3
3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom
2075 Sq Ft + 66 Sq Ft Balcony

This South Loop apartment community is brand spanking new, so new that this penthouse won’t be available to move in to until January 2017!  Until then, we’re drooling over the details of this 2075 sq ft floorplan, complete with a 66 sq ft balcony, 3 bedrooms, a 2-story atrium and unbeatable views of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan, and anxiously awaiting photos of the finished product.  Read more about what makes this building one of our favorites.

The Hensley

Just a little further north you’ll find The Hensley in the River North neighborhood.  The location is great, with easy access to the nightlife, dining and shopping Downtown has to offer.  The apartments themselves show true attention to detail with features like 9′ ceilings, porcelain tiled bathrooms, Nest thermostats and covered balconies.

EnV Chicago

EnV Chicago may not be the newest kid on the block, but it has a timeless elegance that caught our eye and thoughtful details that you can’t help but ignore.  Our favorite?  The custom built-in wine racks above the double-door stainless steel refrigerators.  Not enough space for your collection? You can also rent out a private wine storage locker on-site.  

Kenect Apartments

The Loop

Unit 1-1406
3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom
