Balcony Bonanza in Chicago Apartments

It's the home stretch for Chicago's summer and renters might be looking for every opportunity to enjoy the last bit of warm weather before cooler temperatures arrive. With that in mind, balcony season is still going strong and these are the Chicago apartments where renters will find their own private slice of outdoor space to soak up the remainder of the sunshine in the summer. Sit back, relax, and enjoy these Chicago apartments with balconies that give renters their own little oasis steps away from the kitchen, living room, or bedroom.

Solstice on the Park

Ingenious design elevates the balconies at these Hyde Park apartments in more ways than one. The south-facing apartments at Solstice on the Park are engineered to allow for maximum natural light throughout the year while being angled at a certain degree that also provides shade during the longer daylight hours of the summer. That engineering hack provides the perfect setting for private balconies overlooking the beautiful backdrop of Jackson Park.

Three Old Town Park

These notable views are providing a new perspective from Chicago's Old Town neighborhood. While the building is practically overflowing with top-tier amenities for renters to enjoy, from a basketball court to a bowling alley, nothing matches the relaxation of sitting on your own balcony with a pleasing view in front of you. 

Two Old Town Park

The apartments at Two Old Town Park make a name for themselves by offering deluxe, condo-level finishes for renters to enjoy an elevated living experience. Another page borrowed from the upscale condo lifestyle at Two Old Town Park: each apartment, from studios up to 3 bedroom apartments, comes with its own private balcony.

Arrive South Loop

Private balconies are included for 1 bedroom apartments in this South Loop building. Renters who opt for the larger floor plan in 2 bedroom apartments will get expansive, extra-long balconies as part of the package at Arrive South Loop.

One Chicago Apartments

The newest entry on this list arrives in River North at the corner of State St and Chicago Ave. This central location seems like a no-brainer but for a long time the site of the soon-to-be-open One Chicago Apartments was home to a humble parking lot and not much else. Now, a soaring high-rise apartment tower that offers stunning views from private balconies will be available for renters to toast the high life of downtown Chicago living.

The Lofts at River East

Not many Chicago apartments can claim to be both a waterfront property and historic loft building. The Lofts at River East delivers on both of those fronts with private balconies off the loft apartments that overlook the exclusive Ogden Slip.

1250 LaSalle

Balconies provide panoramic views of the Chicago skyline from these Old Town apartments. The building has plenty of amenity space such as a rooftop deck but renters won't need to look beyond the private balconies for a chance to soak up some rays. Balconies are featured in studios, 1 bedroom apartments, and 2 bedroom apartments in 1250 LaSalle Apartments.

Niche 905 Apartments

Luxury apartments and condos abound in River North but few can measure up to the amenity package at Niche 905. The building has a rooftop pool that's heated and open 365 days a year. What's another way that Niche 905 stands above neighboring buildings? Private balconies provide renters with panoramic views of the city skyline.

1225 Old Town Apartments

Great interiors are matched with the stunning views from the balconies at 1225 Old Town. Some units overlook the swimming pool and rooftop deck, making every day reminiscent of waking up at a luxury resort without ever having to leave Chicago. Other views include the happening Wells Street Corridor and the downtown skyline.

The Jax Apartments

Open air balconies are available at select units of these West Loop apartments. The private outdoor spaces are ample enough for renters to entertain guests, do some container gardening, or just step outside into the fresh air for their own private oasis.
