Where should a Northwestern Memorial Hospital resident live? Here’s the short answer.
You have just been accepted as a resident at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Among other things, you need to find an apartment which is convenient, relatively affordable and not far from the hospital.
The short answer is the Streeterville or Gold Coast neighborhoods. The greatest reason for choosing these neighborhoods is largely due to their close proximity to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the high number of grocery stores within walking distance. Additionally, there are great apartment options for someone with a tight budget or someone who has an appreciation for luxury.
To be more specific on the housing options, a studio or a one bedroom can be found for as little as $1,400 and $1,600 a month (not including parking), respectively. Parking typically ranges anywhere from $150 a month to as high as $400 a month. On the high end, there are one bedroom and two bedroom units available for $2,600 and $4,000.
The majority of the high-rise apartment buildings include amenities such as a gym, spa, pool and common library and party rooms. Typically the higher the rental rate high-rise apartment buildings will include other amenities such as a dry steam sauna and a wet steam sauna, new gym equipment, a concierge service or a golf simulator. Some high-rise apartment buildings even have a full-sized Olympic swimming pool or indoor tennis courts.
In summary, we believe the best neighborhoods for a Northwestern Memorial Hospital resident are either Streeterville or Gold Coast. There is certainly no shortage of high-rise apartment complexes to choose from in these neighborhoods. Which prompts us to note there is no reason to use a professional luxury rental broker as his or her services are paid for by the apartment building.
