ANDERSONVILLE — The newest large-scale luxury apartment building in Andersonville is ready for renters — as long as they’re willing to pay at least $1,450 per month.
The Ainslie, 4914 N. Clark St., is a 54-unit building offering studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. Approved to move forward in 2017, the building began leasing its units earlier this month and will welcome renters in early March, according to Spaces, the company leasing the building for developers Honore Properties and Peerless Development.
A 500-square-foot unit in the building is seeking $1,450 per month in rent, according to the listing. One-bedroom units will start at $1,775 per month and two-bedrooms will start at $2,375, a representative for Spaces said.
Located on the south end of Andersonville’s Clark Street corridor, the Ainslie comes with a heated indoor parking garage and a rooftop deck. The building also has 6,000 square feet of retail space, which is not yet occupied.
Andersonville has not seen the level of large-scale luxury development that neighborhoods like Uptown and Logan Square have.
In Uptown, a redeveloped grammar school began renting in February 2019 with prices starting at $1,655 a month. One of Uptown’s newest developments, The Draper at 5050 N. Broadway, offers studios for $1,200, with rents topping out in the “high $2,000 range,” according to Curbed Chicago.
A studio apartment at the redeveloped site of the former Megamall in Logan Square will set one back at least $1,975 a month.
