Chicago Apartments Near Grocery Stores

When beginning an apartment search in downtown Chicago, making a checklist is often the first step. Most of our clients want the same things: washer/dryer in-unit, hardwood floors, closet space, fitness center. While some people prioritize pet amenities and have high expectations for their pool deck, others want easy access to the beach or lakefront. One feature that can get overlooked is proximity to a grocery store. These three luxury apartment buildings are within blocks of a major grocery store.


Chicago’s newest Whole Foods location is in Streeterville at 255 E. Grand, just one block west of Atwater Apartments. At the young age of seven years old, this luxury apartment building has renovated their amenities and begun upgrading the units as well. Residents can even borrow a grocery cart from the concierge to haul groceries back home.


After opening in late 2013, K2 constructed a pedestrian walkway from their amenity deck directly to the Jewel-Osco flagship store at 370 N. Desplaines in the heart of Fulton Market. Residents must use their key fob in order to cross the bridge, then it’s just a short walk across the parking lot.


While the Lakeshore East neighborhood has been around for over a decade, Coast joined the neighborhood only two years ago. The property’s unique location on East Upper Wacker Drive gives residents the best of both worlds; They can easily get to work in the Loop or near the Chicago River, and can also walk down into the park. Lakeshore East has many attractions, including a  Mariano’s at 333 E. Benton.
