Get to know the neighborhood
Chicago's North Shore is a little bit city and with the best of suburbs. No matter how you slice it, this strip of land along the lake has a whole lot of convenience built-in. Our North Chicago Suburb apartments offer walkability where it matters and accessibility when a 5-10-minute drive is how you gauge getting around town. Our apartments in Evanston are close to the CTA Purple Line, the beach and the grocery store are all just a short, tree-lined distance from home. While our apartments in Deerfield are close to many corporate headquarters, golf courses and other major draws such as Northbrook Court, Chicago Botanic Gardens and the important local freeways.
