If you are looking for a unique apartment for rent in Chicago’s famous near north side neighborhood, be certain to check out Chestnut Place apartments. This fantastic location is situated just 2 blocks from Water Tower Place and Michigan Avenue shopping. Located on the corner of State and Chestnut Streets, it’s just a short walk to some of the finest restaurants, theaters and nightlife Chicago has to offer. At the same time, Oak Street Beach and lakefront jogging are just minutes away. CTA buses stop directly in front and the subway is conveniently located one block south. What else may you need…?
You can immediately see that Chestnut Place is not your “typical” high-rise. Reaching 30 stories, the building is constructed exclusively with solid brick. A home designed on a human scale with unique floor plans that offer a comfortable alternative to the typical glass and steel box buildings of which the city boasts many. From north to south, the building steps forward in five stages, each step rounded with a shimmering bank of bay windows. Between each bay there is a unique pattern created by alternating window sizes. Once the doorman opens the front door you are in a lobby that welcomes you like no other in the city. Complete with a surrounding upper balcony and a hand painted mural on the walls and ceiling by America’s foremost mural painter Ricard Haas. Distinct indeed.
The images used for the above multi media presentation were shot on a recent client assignment that served to update some aspects of their image library.
