A premier lakefront community with great public transportation, restaurants, bars, shops and fun attractions
A lively concentration of restaurants, bars, clubs, coffeehouses, shopping, music venues and a thriving theater scene make Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood one of the city’s most desirable locations for renters. Bordered by Diversey Parkway, Irving Park Road, Ravenswood Avenue and Lake Michigan, Lakeview includes Lakeview East, Boystown, Wrigleyville and Belmont Harbor.
Lakeview begins just 3 1/2 miles north of the Loop, but offers rents that are generally more affordable than neighborhoods farther south. You can get anywhere easily from here, with access to Lake Shore Drive for cars, multiple “L” stops and more than a dozen bus routes connecting the area. You’ll find running and biking paths throughout Lakeview, including a path for Chicago Marathon training. You can even bike the lakefront to the Loop.
Lakeview is an exceptionally walkable, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. Quiet, tree-lined streets are steps from busy main arteries. A short walk takes you to popular destinations for shopping, dining, drinking, entertainment and sports. Wrigleyville, home of historic Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs, has an abundance of sports bars and restaurants.
A Lakeview apartment is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a near-downtown location without the steep rent. PPM’s large assortment of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments in high-rise and mid-rise buildings in prime, near-lakefront Lakeview locations offers a variety of choices for first time and veteran renters and roommates.
With its eclectic, high-energy atmosphere, Lakeview affords you easy access to the Loop along with all the neighborhood features that make your life easier and more enjoyable.
