Spacious and airy penthouse apartment with stunning views of Lake Michigan and Lincoln Park. 1750 sq ft, fully furnished, 2br, 2 bath, utilities included, and available for 2018-19 academic year.

Fabulous apartment in the midst of everything good about Chicago! Walk to Lincoln Park and Lakefront, myriad of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops--and if you can't walk, the bus on the corner gets you everywhere you need to be! Robert Black is extremely responsive to any question or concern and the building engineer and staff do all the rest. This apartment gets 5 Stars in my book; if I hadn't bought my own place in Chicago, I'd gladly rent this apartment again! Excellent Elaine Seeskin 4/24/2018 10:43:00 AM
My wife and I just spent six months with our three sons in the apartment. It was a perfect place for us. The apartment is well kept and it contained everything we needed. The location is fantastic. The beautiful Oz Park is but a few yards away and it is only a short walk to Lincoln Park and the zoo. Restaurants, bars and shops are all around the corner, yet it is still a quiet place. The landlord was very nice and helpful. He promptly responded to our calls or e-mails. If we had a problem - and there were very few - he took care of it immediately. We can wholeheartedly recommend the place. Excellent Ralf Neukirch 7/8/2015 1:08:00 PM
My husband and I really enjoyed the year we spent in Chicago in this condo; we were here September through early June. The location is ideal: very close to public transportation and DePaul University. Quiet, residential block, and both the unit and building are very clean and secure.

Owners were extremely accommodating and responsive throughout our stay. If we return to Chicago in the future, we would not hesitate to stay here again! Highly recommended!

Me and my daughter spent a great year in Chicago. We loved to stay in Jeremy's apartment, a very nice place in a beautiful neighborhood. It is easy to get downtown by trains and buses. The apartment is in walking distance to the beach and to Lincoln Park Zoo. Excellent Martin Eybl 6/10/2012 6:46:00 PM
This apartment is located in the heart of Lincoln Park, perfectly located close to Lake and Zoo. Oz Park is just around the corner and there is no commuting traffic in the street. It offers very easy access to public transportation including CTA trains and busses.

This light and friendly apartment is on the 2nd floor of a 5 story building and offers large 2 bed/ 2 bath rooms, lots of closet storage space, a private balcony with a barbecue, high speed internet, cable TV, on site laundry facilities, bicycle storage, and a separate parking lot.

Anything you need for daily living like supermarkets, convenience stores, cafes, etc. is only 5 min away. This is a perfect spot for those who know Chicago and look for a fast and convenient commute as well as for those who don’t and would like to explore it. I enjoyed every day of my seven month in Chicago.
