I had a showing for a potential renter last week. We went to see the City View, 400 N McClurg, the one bedroom unit is pretty big around 850 square feet. There are different views from this building, the view to the lake is very nice, Navy Pier and the lake. This building is built in 2000 so the equipments are quite new. The indoor pool is very nice, they also offer yoga classes. Right now they have pretty good price for one bedroom unit, starting from $1,395 and they waive all the move in fee and application fees. The location is right next to the Chicago River, very quiet street with one block to the grocery stores and the AMC theater.
We also went to see a couple of the one bedroom at the 474 lakeshore Dr. There is one with great view to the lake, it is south view to the south lake shore line, the city view and view to the Chicago River too. This one unit the asking rent is $1,500. There are rental parking available in the building for $225 per month. Also, this unit has washer and dryer in the unit. The building has indoor lap pool, new and just remolded gym, this is very close to Navy Pier, the lakeshore and the Michigan avenue. So it’s hard to decide as these are both good choices.
