Chicago is constantly growing as more and more people discover the charm and character of this city and want to call it home. With so many people moving to this city, new apartment buildings in Chicago are popping up overnight. New buildings go through a lease-up phase, where they race to fill occupancy and offer excellent rent discounts, move-in specials, and attractive deals. If your lease is ending soon, look to these buildings for brand new, never-been-lived-in units at a great price.

If you’d like help with your apartment search, reach out to AptAmigo. We’ll do the heavy lifting for you so that you can find an apartment with no stress.
