Our building is busy but well maintained and safe.

Jul 2015

Great location and decent unit, but overall the building amenities are in very poor condition and management is difficult and even rude.

It's a great building for young professionals and particularly well located if you work in River North or the Loop.

Grand Plaza Chicago Overview and Highlights


Grand Plaza is a new construction (2003), full-amenity rental building in the heart of River North. Older building, but all units are updated and have balconies and in-unit W/D. Very good amenities. This building offers a great deal for the amount of square footage and closet space you get.

River North

If you want an energized urban experience, River North Chicago is the neighborhood for you. Its unique blend of commerce, housing, and tourism makes it one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Chicago. Most River North residences are glass or brick high rises, and a smaller portion of residents live in converted warehouse lofts. If you’re a local, River North doesn’t offer as much communal or park space as other neighborhoods, but pet lovers still take advantage of the neighborhood’s pet-friendly buildings and river views. If walkable streets are a must, check out Gold Coast or Fulton River District.

With easy access to Chicagoland highways (I-90/94 and Lakeshore Drive), CTA Brown Line and Red Line, and The Loop (within walking distance), commuting from River North is usually a breeze… unless you’re driving during rush hour.

If you live in Chicago and like to stay out late, River North is probably where you’ll end up. With clubs like Tao, bars like Bub City, Three Dots, and Dash, as well as music venues like Howl at the Moon and The Redhead Piano Bar— River North is a party every night of the week.
