Kenwood Apartment Living

Neighborhood Vibe

Kenwood is a notable neighborhood of apartments and homes that gets identified as much by its famous residents as it does by the impressive architecture that’s found throughout the neighborhood. The roster of well known Kenwood residents includes Barack Obama, Muddy Waters and Bill Veeck.

Heart of the Neighborhood

Apartments in Kenwood are near Gwendolyn Brooks Park, on the corner of S Greenwood Ave and E 46th St, named after the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and Chicago author who grew up less than 1 mile away from the present day park. The park features a playground and bust of Brooks, and plays host to the popular Movies in The Parks series of outdoor movie screenings during the warmer months in Chicago.

What We Love Most

The Powhatan Apartments rise in bold art deco style along S Chicago Beach Drive as part of the historic Indian Village subsection of the Kenwood neighborhood, a cluster of classic and mid-century apartment buildings that offer breathtaking views of Lake Michigan. The iconic Powhatan boasts fantastic period details, such as ornate terra cotta on the outside and a fortress-like profile that instantly signifies you’ve arrived in Kenwood.

Best Way to Get Around

Apartments in Kenwood are never too far from public transportation. The CTA ‘L’ makes stops along its Red and Green lines near the western edge of the neighborhood, and the Metra South Shore Electric line makes a stop right in the heart of Kenwood at E 47th St and Lake Shore Drive. The Drive is the quickest way for apartment renters in Kenwood to get north or south and there are several CTA bus routes meandering through the neighborhood as well.
