Evanston Apartments

One of Chicagoland's best kept secrets is the beautiful lakefront community of Evanston. This charming community is actually an entirely separate city unto itself, characterized by its great mix of accessibility to Chicago’s vibrant energy with a slower, more easygoing way of living. If Chicago is known as the “City of Broad Shoulders,” Evanston would be the “City of Medium-set, Relaxed Shoulders.” Travel to the Loop is about a 40 minute Metra train commute from downtown Evanston, or a 25 minute drive up the beautiful Lake Shore Drive. Downtown Chicago is also accessible via the Purple Line, which extends just beyond downtown Evanston to its north.

Although its major attraction is Northwestern University and their famed Wildcats, Evanston has much more to offer than academics and Big Ten athletics. With the amount of unique, quaint shops and restaurants in town, it is easy to see that small businesses are thriving here. Central Street, Chicago Avenue, Dempster Street, and Howard Street all feature fantastic, walkable strips that evoke the feelings of a tightly-knit community in a small town. To maintain a nice balance, downtown Evanston contains multiple high-rise office and residential buildings, as well as several large-scale shopping centers.

Perfect for raising a family, Evanston offers all of the space necessary for children to be children while sacrificing none of the architectural beauty often lost in newer suburban settings. Also, Northwestern’s campus provides ample activities for young professionals to keep busy; bars, pubs, and a college-town music scene are all prevalent in and around campus. A variety of rental property can be found here including; single family homes, lofts, high-rises, courtyards and more. With some of the North Shore's finest shopping and dining, as well as both modern and 19th century architecture, Evanston can offer a refreshing new spin on Chicagoland living. Below is a table showing the price ranges of both the affordable and luxury living options in Evanston.
