View, Location and Price make this one of the best values in the Chicago high-rent district. More importantly--be inspired everyday! Located at intersection of the Chicago River with the North and South branches--this location is the ideal location for somebody who wants to be in the middle of everything Chicago has to offer but also wants a bit of peace and tranquility.
The view--of the the Chicago River and the Merchandise Mart--is mesmerizing for you and all your guests. The real bonus is that the landscaped gardens and the paths below the balcony are empty after 6pm and on weekends--it is like having your own Zen garden right outside your balcony.
The location is simply central, in the highest rent district (River Views in the core commercial district) and provides unparalleled access to Greater Chicagoland--I encourage you to look closely at the Google Maps of Chicago. This location is adjacent to some of the hottest and most expensive commercial real estate in Chicago:
(Note: the balcony of this apartment is plainly visible in the promotional photos on these commercial property websites & you will see the beautifully landscaped public gardens).
The main two train stations (Union and Ogilvy Station) are within 2 blocks of the apartment. There are express bus stops right in front of the building to Navy Pier and Michigan Avenue.
You can walk 3 blocks to the Chicago Civic Opera House, 5 blocks to see "Hamilton" in the Theatre district, you can ride your bike or a "shared-bike" to Millennium Park in 5-10 minutes (with the convenient dedicated bike lanes it is faster than a taxi!). You can walk 5 blocks to "Girl and the Goat" for dinner or one of many award-winning restaurants in the West Loop.
The price: best value for the experience of living in a place that evokes living across the River Thames from the Palace of Westminster in London or across from the Notre Dame Cathedral on the River Seine in Paris. When I was in my twenties I was given the opportunity to live in a place like this at a very reasonable rate and I am just paying it forward.
Lastly, the building itself was design by world-famous architect Daniel Burnham and is amazingly quiet due to its heavy masonry. 1600 square feet of living and working space is quite unheard of in this area of Chicago.
