Lincoln Park and Lakeview apartment deals and finds, 5/13/15

Planned Property is offering a month’s free parking for all new leases at 515 W Barry, and a “dogs live free” deal at 2756 N Pine Grove. Dog fees, dog deposits and dog rent will be waived for a year.

BJB Properties has completely renovated studios starting at $865 a month at 3838 North Broadway. Furnished models are available for viewing.

  • Robert Rohdenburg Activist Citizen

    This BJB/Yo Chicago thread was dated 5/13 and 5/20 has come and gone and apparently either BJB/Yo Chicago or EveryBlock has gotten the message. I have not seen an 5/20 dated EveryBlock ad promoting 3838 N. Broadway, the former Chateau Hotel. Let us hope that they are smart enough to choose to use other web-based promotional means that are within their control rather than use EveryBlock or other such sites. If they don't, they have only themselves to blame.

    Robert, if you want to dream that someday BJB and FLATS will suddenly start subsidizing rents to make sure all the poor get housing because you of course know they should be doing it, go for it.

    If you think they should be sued because thousands of lives have been utterly destroyed because residents were forced to move to another nearby neighborhood, organize the effort and go for it.

    Maybe you can try to get paid for being an advocate so that someone else could get the rent subsidy you're getting from a non profit. Anyway, I hear the apartment you have from Thresholds is beautiful and costs you next to nothing. Glad it worked out for you.
