Logan Square

Cameron Sutton/APA Realty

First up is this 3,000-square foot unit spread out across the first and lower levels of a handsome Spaulding Avenue greystone in Logan Square. The roomy residence includes vintage wooden built-ins and trim, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an upgraded eat-in kitchen with modern appliances and cabinetry. Rent it for $2,995 a month.

Little Italy

C. Gallucci Realty

If the Logan Square greystone doesn’t quite strike your fancy, consider this top-floor unit on a quiet tree-lined street in Little Italy. The bright three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment sports high ceilings, large windows, and oak hardwood floors throughout. The 1,500-square-foot space is listed for $3,000 per month.


VHT Studios/Compass

Located in the northwest corner of Lakeview in a newer elevator building, this second-floor residence is renting for $2,960. The sunny North Side unit boasts a spacious, window-lined living room, a contemporary kitchen, recessed lighting, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a private balcony.



Situated on the grounds of Ravenswood’s historic 1891 Wallace C. Abbott estate—which sold for $1.75 million earlier this spring—this charming stand-alone coach house is yours to rent for $3,000 per month. The two-story structure features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and double doors that lead to a paved patio perfect for dining al fresco.

Magnificent Mile


This unusual two-bedroom, two-bathroom corner unit on the 48th floor of the skyscraper formerly known as the John Hancock Center comes fully furnished. The flowing, loft-like floorplan boasts funky metallic tilework, curving glass-block room dividers, and, of course, outstanding Lake Michigan views. The $2,995 monthly rent includes access to amenities including an indoor pool and a resident-only grocery store on the building’s 44th floor.
