Finding studio apartment deals doesn’t require a treasure map or special detective skills. All renters need to help them find the right studio apartment for them is 1) a good idea of how much they can afford to spend on rent and 2) a little help from Chicago’s best apartment finder. With that in mind, here are the downtown studios that provide unrivaled locations, excellent amenities and lots of style. Check in with each of the leasing teams of the buildings listed here because they frequently run special promotions, even going as far as offering a couple months of FREE RENT for new leases.
Studio Apartments in the Heart of the Chicago Loop
This former office building in the heart of Chicago’s Loop has been transformed into downtown loft apartments for rent.

Adams St. Renters can go to town in decorating one of these chic urban loft apartments and catch thrilling views of the downtown Chicago skyline from a rooftop patio.
Lincoln Park Apartments Combine Elegance & Elevated Amenities
ELEVATE Lincoln Park
This luxury apartment building in Lincoln Park was one of the first out of the gate to help reinvent the stretch of N Lincoln Ave, giving the neighborhood its first modern and upscale apartment building on the scene in quite some time. ELEVATE Lincoln Park hews to convention in some ways -- the open-air courtyard is reminiscent of classic neighborhood apartment buildings throughout Chicago -- but incorporates high-end upgrades that will remind renters of the amenity-laden apartment buildings that have sprung up near downtown Chicago. The rooftop has exceptional views of the city while letting renters cool down in the swimming pool. The resident lounges are cozy and luxe without seeming overdone. The units are equally impressive, boasting floor-to-ceiling windows, in-unit laundry machines, dark hardwood flooring and professional grade kitchen appliances. And now this innovative building is offering renters a month of FREE RENT for new apartment leases.
