Neighborhood Info: Oak Park

The Oak Park apartments for rent at The Emerson put renters in a supremely convenient location with all of this cozy Chicago suburb’s amenities at the doorstep. Oak Park is only 9 miles west of downtown Chicago, and renters at this apartment tower can zoom through local traffic to arrive at stunning, modern studios, 1 bedrooms and 2 bedroom apartments. 

Views of the Chicago skyline await renters from large windows in these luxury apartments for rent in Oak Park’s vibrant downtown area. Every detail is picture-perfect within the apartments; renters will discover quality stainless steel kitchen appliances, stone counters with undermount sinks, sleek tile backsplash, sturdy wooden cabinets and charming pendant lighting in the kitchens. Bathrooms are generously apportioned -- complete with full-size bathtubs and oversized vanity mirrors for renters in these Oak Park apartments. Bedrooms provide a cozy getaway from the action of downtown Oak Park and some units come with a private balcony that allows renters to embrace the glorious days of Chicago summer.

All renters can enjoy the amenity level of this Oak Park apartment building, which offers fire pits to warm up chilly nights and BBQ grilling stations that are perfect for a summer gathering. The heated swimming pool provides boundless opportunities for both relaxation and fitness. The fully equipped gym and fitness center are also indispensable for renters who want to save money on a costly gym membership or just get in a few convenient workouts here and there.

The proximity to Chicago is a highlight, and the commute is made even simpler thanks to the nearby UP-W Metra station at downtown Oak Park. Also, the CTA Green line stops at Harlem station, which is only a few minutes’ walking distance from apartments at The Emerson. The I-290 expressway is only a few blocks south of these modern apartments for rent near the heart of Oak Park’s charming downtown district.

Most of the day-to-day shopping can be done without a car, however, thanks to The Emerson’s great location in the heart of downtown Oak Park. Various shopping options such as Target, Old Navy, Pier 1 Imports, The Gap, Ulta Beauty and CVS Pharmacy are in the shopping plaza across the street. More options are only a quick bus ride or car trip away, and dining is a breeze. On top of the nicely finished kitchens and outdoor grilling stations in The Emerson apartments, renters can venture out to Nando’s Peri-Peri, Noodles and Company, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Local ‘84 - Healthy Café, Potbelly Sandwich Shop, Boss Burrito, Katy’s Dumplings, Sushi House Oak Park, and Lake Street Kitchen & Bar.
