If a new apartment on Chicago’s far north side is on your radar, add the newly-opened Platform 4611 in Uptown to your list of possibilities. We’ve had our eye on Platform 4611’s development since 2021, and we can’t wait to show it off to prospective renters.
The newest apartment building in Uptown, this midrise is a north-side treasure that I think just might win you over!
The building – located at 4611 N Broadway – opened in early 2023. A much-needed addition to the luxury apartment market in Uptown, Platform 4611 brings 200 new apartments to the neighborhood.
Nine stories of luxury apartment units are anchored by ground-floor retail space that’s yet to be developed. The wave of new construction in the Uptown neighborhood has been fierce recently, so I have no doubt this space will be leased out in a snap – hopefully by a cool independent coffee shop or cafe. Because we all know having endless iced macchiatos in the same building as your apartment makes life sweeter!
Jointly developed by Chicago locals The John Buck Company and Free Market Ventures, Platform 4611 was designed to appeal to apartment dwellers who work from home, and it all came together beautifully.

NEW LUXURY APARTMENTS IN UPTOWN
The new apartments on Broadway and Wilson are, in a word, stunning. Let’s look at the finishes and details that make these units some of the best apartments in Uptown.
My number one most-loved design feature in each apartment isn’t the fancy kitchen or sleek bathroom (though, I’ll get to those!). It’s the windows. Just look at the natural light flooding through these huge windows! You’ll find floor-to-ceiling windows in every apartment unit at Platform 4611. Between the views and sunshine, you’ll love keeping those shades up and the light streaming in.
The colors and finishes were impeccably chosen. A chic, earth-tone palette creates a zen vibe that’s easy on the eye and feels refreshingly on-trend. Warm wood tones, black trim, and exposed concrete blend in pure urban harmony. The aesthetic is reminiscent of the neighborhood itself – a mix of traditional and modern design.
Another unique feature of Platform 4611’s apartments is the nine-foot ceilings in every unit. Between the high ceilings and large windows, even the studio apartments at Platform 4611 feel spacious. In fact, we may have to add this studio to our list of the biggest studio apartments in Chicago!

Do you have a studio apartment budget, but a wardrobe and shoe collection with other thoughts? Wait until you see Platform 4611’s studio apartments with mega-huge walk-in closets. Or, maybe you want a studio with more of a convertible vibe and extra separation between your living and bedroom space. Check out this brilliantly designed 456-square-foot studio. Every inch was designed to maximize space while giving you a cozy sleeping area that’s separated from your living and kitchen area.
There are several 1-bedroom apartment floor plans at Platform 4611. The one I can’t wait to show off is this dreamy 592-square-foot unit.

THE PLATFORM 4611 NEIGHBORHOOD: CHICAGO’S UPTOWN
If you’re set on renting an apartment on the north side of Chicago, you’ve probably got your eye on Lincoln Park, Lake View, and Wrigleyville (all great choices!). But have you thought about Uptown? I love introducing people to this up-and-coming neighborhood.
Uptown is known for its ease of living, with quick access to public transit and an abundance of conveniences like grocery and retail. Located right along the lakeshore, it’s full of old-school Chicago charm and is in the midst of a total glow-up. It attracts entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, and students, all of whom are drawn to its food and music scene.
LIVING IN UPTOWN AT PLATFORM 4611
Platform 4611 was built right along Uptown’s main corridor (Broadway), so when you rent here, you’re square in the middle of it all!
First, let’s cover the conveniences near Platform 4611. After all, being able to walk to Target has got to be the biggest luxury of all when renting in downtown Chicago, right?

Hop on, and you’ll be in the heart of downtown Chicago in just under 30 minutes.
THE UPTOWN CHICAGO VIBE
Living in Uptown is sounding pretty great, don’t you think? But what’s it really like? I often get asked what the vibe of each downtown Chicago neighborhood is, and I like to describe Uptown as inconspicuously cool. Uptown’s roots – dating back to the early 1900s – are in entertainment and music, and it’s still known for its amazing music scene today.
If live music is your thing, you’ll love having two of Chicago’s best venues in your neighborhood. The famous Green Mill jazz bar has been around forever and is the coolest hangout in the ‘hood. The Riviera Theater is also within walking distance from Platform 4611 and always has an amazing line-up of indie bands on the docket.
Uptown has also become a go-to neighborhood for foodies who want to explore outside of the usual West Loop and River North hot spots. Uptown restaurants are known for their global menus, and when you live on Broadway and Wilson, you’ll be able to walk to tons of great spots! Here are some local favorites:
- Demera: The best Ethiopian food in Chicago
- Tank Noodle: Vietnamese Pho on Argyle Street
- Ragadan: Falafel and burgers, need I say more?
- Be Le: Unreal Banh Mi sandwiches!
- Sun Wah BBQ: Legendary Hong Kong-style BBQ
PARKS NEAR UPTOWN’S PLATFORM 4611
It’s not all music and food in Uptown – the neighborhood has a huge stretch of lakeshore with acres upon acres of green space and beach. From your new apartment, it’s less than a mile walk to sports fields, a skate park, basketball courts, and more.
Montrose Beach also has a gorgeous stretch along the lake with a bird sanctuary, gardens, and quiet observation points. If you’re looking to get out and enjoy winter in Chicago, check out Cricket Hill, the best sledding hill in the city!
And then there’s Montrose Dog Park and Beach, the best dog park in Chicago to wear out your pup! People flock to this awesome fenced-in dog beach, and when you live at Platform 4611, you’re fortunate enough to have it in your backyard.
