5 Chicago Apartments to Tackle New Year's Resolutions in 2019

A new year has come around and with it the expectations of New Year's Resolutions. While many Chicago apartment renters make a modest list of resolutions that could be as simple as "stay organized" or "don't spend a fortune on takeout this year" (we know, that's a tough one), some renters will come up with resolutions that nudge them a bit closer to living their best lives in 2019. Will that be you this year? If the answer's yes, these five apartment buildings in Chicago can help you get a running start and tackle some of the most ambitious resolutions in the new year.

The central location and wealth of amenities in this Loop apartment building helps renters rely more on their own two feet and less on four-wheeled modes of transportation. That might come as a welcome sign to any renters who are interested in leading a more eco-friendly lifestyle in the new year. Or it could just mean more savings since you won’t need to worry about parking anymore! 

World Class Dining Offers Inspiration for West Loop Apartment Renters
