Take a look at the layout of this convertible apartment. At 597 square feet, it feels spacious and has a nice separation between the open living space and bedroom area. And, there’s enough room for a desk against the window. An office with a view sounds pretty sweet, right?
This 1-bedroom unit is perfect if you need a home office. It has a den tucked away from your living room and bedroom, creating a true office space, without having to rent a two-bedroom unit. And yes – that’s a guest bathroom too- such a treat for renters who spend their days and nights in their apartment!
This 2-bedroom, 2-bath unit is hands-down my favorite floor plan. At 1,102 square feet, it’s huge and has so much room to spread out. The split bedroom floorplan is ideal, especially for roommates, or when you’re hosting company. Having a dining space this large in an apartment is really unusual, and I’m guessing most residents will turn it into a great home office.
But, it’s the floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor terrace that’s going to win your heart! Absolutely massive, the view spans the entire length of the unit. You’ll find so much delight in renting an apartment with a balcony in South Loop.
