Opting for the extra space can make sense for renters who have particular needs in their apartment search. The rent of 2 bedroom apartments in Chicago often includes more amenities, such as a washer/dryer in the unit, a parking spot or other utilities included with the rent or available at an additional cost. Whether your search is driven by the need for more space, or maybe you'd prefer to find a roommate to share your next apartment in an effort to control costs, you can get the space you need while finding a place that’s worthy of calling home.
In general, listings for 2 bedroom apartments on Domu reflect the conventional wisdom that the farther 2 bedroom apartments are located from downtown Chicago, the less expensive they are. As expected, neighborhoods with new luxury apartments -- such as Streeterville, the Lakeshore East and River North -- are among Chicago’s priciest neighborhoods. The next most expensive apartment rental neighborhoods are located just outside the downtown area and include the West Loop, River West and the Near North Side.
With an average apartment rent of almost $3,500 per month for 2 bedroom apartments, Streeterville is Chicago’s most expensive neighborhood for multi-bedroom places, while West Ridge is the most affordable at $1,300 average rent per month for 2 bedroom apartments.
