The subject property is situated on coveted Pratt Boulevard which is one of the only streets in Chicago with an unobstructed view of Lake Michigan. Pratt Boulevard is one of the premier residential streets in Chicago. Tenants have lakefront views and are within walking distance to nearby parks and activity hubs. With just a few steps residents can find themselves enjoying views of Lake Michigan at Tobey Prinz Beach Park or they could walk directly to Columbia Beach which is just outside the building. Adjacent to the park is Loyola Park Tennis Court, which features four regulation size courts that are open to the public.

Known for its beaches, vintage apartments, cultural diversity, and Loyola University, Rogers Park is one of Chicago’s most robust lakefront communities. Just ten miles north of Chicago’s Central Business District, Rogers Park has convenient transportation to and from the city including four CTA “L” stops (Loyola, Morse, Jarvis, & Howard stops); one Metra Train stops at Lunt Avenue; five local bus lines; and the Howard Bus and “L” terminal which is the starting point for north suburban travel.

Rogers Park, boasting a population of just over 60,000 people, stretches along Lake Michigan between Devon and Howard and runs west to Ridge Avenue.
