Thinking About a Logan Square Apartment Rental in Chicago?
Our Logan Square studio apartments and 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom units are fully rehabbed and affordable. Hipsters, working-class residents, professionals and young families call this diverse area home. And yes, there really is a “square” in Logan Square — a large grassy, parklike area featuring a plaza and the Illinois Centennial Monument — in the heart of this community. In fact, Logan Square boasts beautiful, wide boulevards bordered on both sides by landscaped medians and tall trees. With four of these interconnected medians lined with gorgeous old mansions and greystones, is it any wonder that the area is referred to as the “Emerald Necklace”?
What Is There to Do Here?
What it would be like to live in this large, family-friendly neighborhood? During the last five years or so, Logan Square had experienced a development renaissance. If you’re hungry, you can choose from an amazing number of local cafes, coffee shops and noteworthy restaurants. In the evening, you can go to a “dive” bar, an artisanal cocktail lounge, or sample the beers at Revolution Brewery, Illinois’s largest independent craft brewery. You can attend the theater, a concert or street music festival featuring local bands, or stroll through the art galleries. You can shop at one of the locally owned boutiques or national retail stores that line the main streets.
Logan Square has a nice community vibe. Families enjoy the green space and numerous parks, including the nearby regional Humboldt Park with its playfields, lagoon and the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture. Neighborhood groups promote preservation, community gardens and even operate a local farmers’ market. Residents attend many annual parties, including the Logan Square Food Truck Social, Taste of Latin America, Logan Square Arts Festival, Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival, Logan Square Beer Fest and more.
How Do I Get Around?
When you visit Logan Square, one of the first things you notice is the number of bikes on the street. It’s an easy, cheap way to get around, and riding the wide boulevards is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The western end of the 606 elevated walking/running/biking trail runs through the neighborhood, allowing residents to travel or exercise without worrying about the auto traffic in the streets below.
Logan Square is a very accessible neighborhood. The CTA blue line has two convenient Logan Square stations, one on California Avenue and the other on Milwaukee Avenue, right in the middle of the neighborhood. This “L” line transports riders between the close-in western suburbs through the Loop and out to O’Hare International Airport. CTA buses, taxis and ride-sharing vehicles are plentiful, too.
