Located on the best block in Chicago, 160 E. Illinois Ave is positioned on a quiet, lovely, cul-de-sac one-half block off of the infamous Magnificent Mile. It's like being in the heart of it all without being run over by buses ... it's the best of both worlds. Avenue East is steps from everything Chicago has to offer, fine dining, the gorgeous lakefront, prestigious Michigan Avenue shopping; the list goes on and on. Not to mention its proximity to the Expressway, Lake Shore Drive, Metra, buses, and CTA! Avenue East makes a great pied-à-terre because of its luxurious finishes and fantastic location for tourists as well as residents. It's a very common trend in the building as it makes the stay in Chicago feel more like home than a hotel (and sometimes as affordable)!
Aside from the obvious amazing location, another feature that really sets Avenue East apart from the many new construction buildings in Streeterville is the "boutique building" feel. You have all the amenities of a large building without the stoic feeling of huge high-rise living. With a total of only 130 units, you get the feel of home everytime you walk through the lobby door!
Streeterville has had a complete makeover in the past 5 years, mostly due to all of the new condo developments in the area. There have been some amazing additions to the area, but the location of Avenue East is uncomparable to anything in Streeterville. Being just a footstep off the beaten path really sets Avenue East apart from the other developments!
