Green Walls and Herb Gardens in Downtown Apartment Buildings
Moving to an apartment downtown comes with pros and cons. Living downtown provides a short commute and an amazing variety of restaurants, shopping, and things to do. Unless you’re moving from another major city, this transition is often downsizing when people are moving from a larger space, but we have some advice for maximizing storage options.
However, for people concerned about losing their backyard or green space, many downtown Chicago apartments offer extra space on their pool deck. Circa 922’s brand-new outdoor space provides a private dog-run, outdoor pool with lounge space, and a shared herb garden. AMLI River North has a shared garden on their expansive amenity deck, where residents share plots for growing herbs and vegetables. Residents at Flair Tower can use freshly-grown herbs all year with the moveable green wall that is maintained inside during the winter.
After a record-breaking first year, OneEleven added a community herb garden in August. This new amenity joins a long list of others on the 29th floor, where residents can reserve private outdoor kitchens, lounge by the pool, or pick some fresh herbs from the garden.
Giving up a little extra closet space and a yard is well worth the benefits that come with living downtown Chicago. Now is the perfect time to enjoy life in a downtown high-rise, where you’ll have 24-hour maintenance and never have to shovel or mow the lawn. No matter which features are important to you, the Luxury Living team can help you find the perfect new home.
