Pour yourself a glass of warm cider, pull on that sweater and snuggle up with your besties, including your four-legged friends if you’re renting in one of Chicago’s many pet-friendly apartments, because autumn is on its way to the Midwest. These Chicago apartment buildings are prepared for the onslaught of chilly evenings, scary movie marathons and pumpkin-spiced everything with their amenity packages.

And these buildings provide great spots to get cozy while you admire the changing seasonal colors and chat with your neighbors over a warm fire.

Echelon Chicago 

The Fulton Market neighborhood is on fire lately. New restaurants, shops and trendy cafes are making their way into this part of town that was once home to a meatpacking district. Newcomers to Fulton Market can still strike while the iron is hot and get in to experience the character of this formerly industrial corner of town that’s alarmingly close to downtown -- meaning commutes into downtown office space will be a breeze. Apartment renters at Echelon Chicago can watch the flurry of activity in this red-hot neighborhood from the comfortable lounge beside the communal fire pit.
