Browse the Best Deals for Apartments in Chicago

It's the time of year when Chicago apartment renters start thinking warm thoughts. Spring isn't too far off...but the weather's yet to turn. Luckily, these apartments are encouraging  renters to come in out of the cold and treat themselves to a great deal. These are the real deal apartments in Chicago offering concessions, some including free rent, to savvy renters who are ready to move into a new apartment this year.

Best Deal in the West Loop

The Van Buren

The West Loop ranks near the top of Chicago’s most talked about communities for a couple of years now, and this apartment building is opening its doors to renters just in time to let them be part of the West Loop’s hot streak. Renters who sign up for 18+ month leases at The Van Buren can get a staggering 2 months of free rent as part of the deal.

Best Deal in River North

River North Park

Renters who take a look at the newly renovated amenity spaces and apartments in River North Park get rewarded with waived admin fees ($450 value) when they sign a lease. This corner of the River North neighborhood has tons of character thanks to the elevated railway tracks that snake through the neighborhood and historic buildings like converted warehouse buildings that are now home to cool loft apartments and offices. 

Best Deal in the South Loop

Astoria Tower

The South Loop has grown leaps and bounds in recent years, and now is the perfect time for apartment renters to get on board with this neighborhood’s revitalization. Astoria Tower is offering renters an enticing 1 month of free rent to sign up for an apartment lease in early 2020. Renters can get world-class views of the city skyline, live walking distance to Metra, CTA and the Museum Campus, and access to first-class amenities in this South Loop apartment tower. 

Best Deal for Short-Term Rentals in Lakeview

Common Briar

Renters who don’t want to deal with the hassles of furnishing their next apartment should look into the Lakeview co-living suites at Common Briar. This building might make sense for renters who are new to Chicago, or maybe those who are already in Chicago but are coming from a multi-bedroom apartment that was shared with roommates. So they may have a few of the essentials, but not necessarily enough to furnish an entire apartment. That’s where Common Briar makes it simple: renters can sign up for a flexible lease term and bring only their personal items. All major furniture is provided, utility bills are included with the rent, plus cooking and cleaning supplies are all stocked by the management company. Renters who explore these Lakeview co-living suites will get their application and move-in fees waived if they sign a lease in 2020.

Best Deal in Chicago's Gold Coast

1000 N LaSalle

Renters can embrace their sky-high ambitions at these centrally located Gold Coast apartments by heading up to the rooftop pool deck and they can keep it down to earth as well; the pet-friendly apartments for rent at 1000 N LaSalle have a private dog run that makes it easy to look after four-legged roommates. And renters can claim a $100 credit if they book an appointment to visit these Gold Coast apartments before signing a lease. 

Best Deal in Downtown Chicago

200 Squared

Picture a brilliant day in the height of the Chicago summer spent lounging on the rooftop of 200 Squared, right in the middle of the action at Lake and Wells. Renters at this sleek downtown apartment high-rise needn’t imagine -- it’s reality for them. Life in the Chicago Loop is basically the one-stop shop of Chicago neighborhoods: work is around the corner, celebrated restaurants are a couple blocks to the west, transit is simplified with the Loop’s extensive railway network. And right now renters can get 1 month free if they sign a lease for apartments in this centrally located, modern apartment building.

Best Deal Near Public Transportation

Lakeview 3200

These Lakeview apartments offer an ideal location and a deal on top of it: renters can get 1 month of free rent if they sign a 13+ month lease agreement. That may be longer than a standard lease term but renters will find that the extra time in this neighborhood is time well spent. The apartments at Lakeview 3200 are located near the intersection of Clark and Belmont, and the building’s less than 1 mile from Wrigley Field. So many things happen right around here that it’s impossible to name them all, but it’s a perfect spot for renters who want to make the most out of living in Lakeview.
