Downtown Chicago Apartments Continue Their Strong Run

Chicago’s housing market may be in a slump, but it’s a different story when it comes to downtown apartments. The market is red hot with no sign of slowing down.

According to Integra Realty Resources, a Chicago appraisal and consulting firm, the average rent at top-tier downtown buildings rose to a record $3.26 per square foot in Q1, up 5.8 percent from a year earlier, and the occupancy rate increased to 94.3 percent, up from 93.2 percent a year ago.

What’s driving all this demand? The big reason is the strong downtown job market. That’s giving happy landlords the leverage to raise rents without having to worry about losing tenants.

Yes, demand is strong, but supply is also going through the roof. Since 2015, developers have built 47 new downtown buildings with 15,222 units. New buildings include Nema Chicago, an 800-unit skyscraper at the south end of Grant Park, and Paragon Chicago, a 500-unit project at 1326 S. Michigan Ave.
