Get to Know Fulton River

Located just off the bustle of downtown, apartments in Fulton River come in all shapes and sizes. From affordable studios to larger, three-bedroom units, whatever the size of your family, there’s something here for you. These homes offer modern kitchens, spacious master suites, and in many cases, private balconies. Outside the apartments, many of these buildings offer fun leisure amenities like pools, outdoor decks, fitness centers, and coworking spaces.


Living in Fulton River means you’re close to the top-notch dining experiences of the West Loop. Randolph Street is where you’ll find Girl and the Goat (from Chef Stephanie Izard, who was the first female Top Chef winner) and Au Cheval (rumored to have the best burgers in the city) along with tons of other hotspots.


For nightlife, you can cross the river to take advantage of all that River North has to offer, or you can stay on your side of the tracks and check out Grand Ave, a quaint, cool area with bars and restaurants with easy access to the CTA Blue Line. You’ll come across a Chicago legend in La Scarola (a fantastic neighborhood Italian joint). But you’ll also find some new favorites like the Dawson and Piccolo Sogno. Both places have gorgeous patios and are perfect for date nights—the Dawson is casually trendy and Piccolo Sogno gives off a more romantic vibe.
