Targeting college students and young professionals in Chicago’s South Loop, 30 East offers 255 bedroom rentals in 134 shared, furnished apartments. A two-story podium with ground-level retail and second-floor indoor/outdoor amenity space supports the fourteen-story tower. The sleek glass enclosure reflects 30 East’s modern take on rental living.
