New River West Apartments to Join Transit-Friendly Trend

Plans are in full swing for a brand new downtown Chicago luxury apartment building to fill the empty parking lot and vacant 5,000 square-foot building at 740 N. Aberdeen Street in River West. Set to be conveniently situated just across from the CTA’s Chicago Avenue Blue line stop on Ogden and Milwaukee, the development will join the nearby Spoke and Linkt apartments as a major transit-friendly presence.

We’re pumped about these new apartments in River West that will promote the concept of ditching the car and digging into walking, biking, and public transportation instead. 

Design and Development Details

Chicago-based Fifield Companies will head up development of the12-story mid-rise. Judging by their past projects like 3Eleven, Niche 905, and 727 W. Madison, they’ll no doubt ace the job.

The local firm FitzGerald Associates Architects will be in charge of the design which will include 188 upscale rental units, 80 devoted parking spaces, and 2,400 square feet of ground-floor retail that’s yet to be revealed.

We’ve Got Wind of Great Amenities 

The luxury apartments will be overflowing with amenities for residents to enjoy – like a pool with a fabulous lounging deck and a state-of-the-art fitness center.  

An in-house party room will be available for mixing with the neighbors or entertaining friends.    

Why leave to go to work when work can come to you? A co-working space will provide a great place to hook up and get the job done without ever leaving the building.

The new apartments in River West will be pet-friendly and will feature a dog park that is sure to delight your four-legged furry friend. 

Great Footing

River West is the perfect setting for this transit-oriented residence. It’s a friendly, vibrant, slightly off-beat area where practically everything is within walking distance. It’s a neighborhood that’s continuously being reinvented and is becoming increasingly supportive of those who prefer to walk and pedal over driving.  

Put a pep in your step when you grab a coffee just minutes from your front door. Restock on toiletries or pick up your prescription right down the way at CVS.

You’ll never lack for eateries around the River West area. Dive on into SushiX for some of the most awesome Japanese inspired cuisine on the planet.  

Experience unmatched wood-fired pizzas, chef-inspired entrée creations, and craft beer and cocktails at Matchbox, the restaurant that believes food should be fun and inclusive.  

Windy City Café is always a favorite spot to warm up to some delicious comfort food that’s actually healthy. Vegans absolutely love the menu here. Dine-in or take out – it’s just a short walk away.  

Here’s what’s within a 10-minute walk:

When your destination does require a longer trek, the light is always green at the nearby CTA Chicago Blue line where you can get anywhere you need to be.
