If you're on the fence of whether to rent or own a downtown one bedroom place, keep this cute 750 square foot corner unit in mind. Located in a Bertrand Goldberg designed building on Astor Street in the Gold Coast, this one bedroom, one bathroom unit has a really sweet retro (and presumably original) kitchen. Although the kitchen is quite cramped, it'd be blasphemous to rip it out and replace it with the cliche granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The monthly assessment rings in at $714 per month, but it does include heat, air conditioning, cable and water. This one can be had for $225,000.
