Hotspot Picks: 7 Best Apartment Rooftops in Chicago

This week we have compiled a list of our 7 favorite rooftops in Chicago’s downtown luxury apartments. Let’s take full advantage of this summer and check them out.

#1) Niche 905, River North

Thank you Niche for stepping back and taking advantage of the city skyline and the openness of the West view! This rooftop deck offers an East view of the city with an outdoor kitchen+bar, fireplaces and pool. Head across the hall to find a sunset view with communal seating and private covered grills (ahem, covered grills means grilling all year round)! They didn’t forget a thing when designing this rooftop.

#2) Block 37, The Loop

Block 37 has created an oasis in the heart of the city that comes with 3 separate outdoor spaces. Their north-facing patio displays the lights of the theatre district marquees. Their second outdoor space comes equipped with grills, cabanas, and a picturesque pool. Even though tall buildings surround you, there is still plenty of sun. Finally, their top-floor rooftop lets you forget that you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle of downtown. Relax, enjoy the views, hangout in the hot-tub, the world is your oyster in this building.

#3) Axis, Streeterville

You can chase the sun with this 360 degree rooftop in Streeterville. Grill out, cozy up to an outdoor fireplace or host your own private party. You won’t find a better view than this Chicago rooftop apartment!

#4) 805 N LaSalle, River North

Clean, crisp and to the point. For you sunbathers out there, this building’s rooftop is open, comes with plenty of seating and you will enjoy amazing sun all day. Come night, soak in the city lights while chatting around the fire. A true gem in your River North apartment hunt.

#5) Wolf Point West, River North

Not many Chicago high-rises have capitalized on our gorgeous Chicago River. This River North apartment rental has taken advantage of those views, in all the right ways! Enjoy a dip in their outdoor pool while watching the boats glide by. Looking for something different? Take a seat with not just any other city view. Grab a cabana or a seat in their lounge. They really have something for everyone.

#6) Echelon at K Station, Fulton River

This Fulton River rooftop is all about space and being social! A huge lap pool in the middle of this city-lined rooftop is surrounded with cabanas, lounge chairs and a fire pit. The building also boasts a grilling patio with gas BBQ grills and a flatscreen. It’s the perfect place to kick back with some friends, cookout and catch a big game. 

#7) 1000 S. Clark, South Loop

Ending with this South Loop location for a reason… 23,000 sq ft of flawless amenities. An indoor pool that becomes an “outdoor” pool in the summer, huge outdoor hot-tub with a view of the city, lounge chairs on the south and north side of the building. Enjoy the panoramic views of the city skyline during a morning yoga session, entertain around the grills, or meet your neighbors during any of the social events hosted on the rooftop throughout the year.
