See what $2,000/month gets you in neighborhoods like the South Loop, Lincoln Square, and Logan Square


Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a regular column exploring what you can rent for a set dollar amount in different neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out. Today's price: $2,000.

2535 W. Cullom Avenue

Alright, so this listing is actually $2,100 per month, but you’re getting a full single family home for the price. Located just steps away from the Chicago River’s North Branch and Horner Park, you’re getting a lot of space, privacy, and neighborhood amenities for the price. Dogs are allowed and the deal allows tenants use of the home’s two-car garage.


343 S. Dearborn Street #1505

If high-rises are your thing, here’s a listing for a two-bedroom unit in the historic Fisher Building for $2,050. Beyond the tower’s architectural pedigree, there’s a lot to like about this one. The Loop location is convenient, the building features a number of amenities, and the unit itself is fully updated, and the views look nice.

4954 N. Hamilton Avenue #2

Here’s a three-bedroom in a classic Chicago brick two-flat that is renting for $2,050 per month. The unit is squeaky clean and the location near Winnemac Park and the heart of Lincoln Square is tough to beat for the price. Other features include in-unit laundry, free heat, and a dishwasher. Garage parking will cost an extra $125 per month.

2308 N. Kedzie Blvd #1

If you’re a fan of vintage Chicago apartments, this three-bedroom on Kedzie Boulevard in Logan Square is worth taking a look at. The unit boasts many original architectural details such as lighting fixtures, millwork, built-ins, and radiator covers. The apartment features its own laundry and heat is included in the $2,000 rent.

3131 N. Central Park Avenue #2

For $1,950, you can be the very first tenant to rent in this fully rehabbed and updated Avondale two-flat. The three-bedroom apartment features all brand new finishes and appliances, in-unit laundry, and central air and heat. The building is located just a short walk from the Belmont Blue Line station, but garage parking is available for an additional $50 month.
