#TransformationThursday at 5910 N Sheridan

Happy Thursday!! We have great news!

Horizon Realty Group recently acquired the beautiful mid-century property at 5910 N Sheridan. The building, located directly across the street from Lane Beach in Edgewater, was in dire need of loving care and a good face lift! Construction is soon coming to an end, creating an industrial look and calling the new building The Edge@Sheridan.

The Edge@Sheridan has top of the line security features such as remote cell phone access to each apartment. So, if your best friend is in town to visit you, feel free to send them a code via their cell phone and voilà! You’re friend in making themselves at home without having to find your key under your doormat – or worse – outside in the snow!

Another cool feature we keep bragging about at The Edge@Sheridan is a really cool package room powered by Luxer One. If you haven’t used Luxer One yet, it’s one of the easiest to use and secure package distribution. When a package arrives to our mailroom, you’ll receive an email with a code that unlocks the package room and lets you sign for the package on an iPad. No more waiting for the front desk to open the package room or having your package stolen from your front door! It’s all good at The Edge.

As for the apartments themselves? Be ready for luxury with brand new appliances and state-of-the-art refrigerators that will make you feel right at home! Most apartments are geared with floor to ceiling windows which open to a balcony and overlooks the lake. Forget ever feeling drafted by cold windows in the winter as the brand new electric heat is powerfully fueling each unit with multiple vents.

Saving the best for last, we love the new bathrooms at The Edge@Sheridan! Each bathroom has LED lights powerfully brightening up your makeup moment. No more dark and dreary Chicago bathrooms – this room will be your favorite!

We are leasing now for The Edge@Sheridan! Call Enes at 773 529 7200 ext 119 or email us at 5910Sheridan@horizonrealtygroup.com for more information. Move in begins soon and we’re offering the first 10 leases your 13th month free with a 12 month lease contract!

Transformation Thursday!

I know. It is supposed to be #TransformationTuesday, but I was busy Tuesday.

Everyone loves a good makeover or Cinderella story. We have one in Sheridan Tower. The rooftop sundeck has always had stunning views of the city and the lake. It was time to give this beauty a new look! With its transformation, included with the view, are an array of conveniences and amenities. The stone tile outside has been covered with artificial turf and new seating to create an urban oasis. A small dog area has been added along with a bag-toss game. The furniture inside was also replaced and a mini fridge, TV and WI-FI have been added to make it a nice place to entertain, hang out, work or relax while enjoying the city and lake views.

Sorry we took longer than expected. Share pictures enjoying a Horizon space on social media and tag us or use the hashtag #chicagohorizon. You might be picked to win a $50 Amazon gift card.

Patio Restaurant picks on the Northside

Once it starts to get warm in Chicago, we try to spend as much time outside as possible. That means patio time in Chicago dining al fresco. It is going to be in the 60’s this weekend, which feels like the 90’s to us after our brutal cold winters. We wanted to share some great places in our north side neighborhoods where you can dine outside. This is just a small sampling. Share ones you love in the comments.

Ravenswood

Gather – 4539 N. Lincoln Ave – Website
Gather has an adorable covered patio in back. They are participating in Chef Week April 17th through April 22nd. During this week they are offering a prix-fixe menu! Time Out Magazine describes one of their desserts served in a cast-iron skillet as “a soft, buttery mess of dough and caramel.” Yum.

The Fireside – 5739 N. Ravenswood – Website
Tucked away along the trains tracks in Ravenswood you’ll find The Fireside. They have a year-round patio in back and a small seasonal one right in front. Their beer list is outstanding!

Rogers Park

La Cazuela – 6922 N. Clark – Website
La Cazuela boasts breakfast wraps and Mexican food. When I scoured the internet for reviews, many people rave about their garden seating…and the seafood.

Heartland Cafe – 7000 N. Glenwood – Website
With adorable sidewalk patio seating, Heartland Cafe has been serving “good wholesome food for the mind and body in Rogers Park” for over 35 years. Time Out Chicago also lists it as one of Chicago’s Essential Restaurants. They offer vegetarian and vegan food! You might see me here this weekend. 🙂

Uptown

Tweet – 5020 N. Sheridan – Website
Patio? Check. Bloody Marys and Mimosas? Check. Brunch menu? Check. Tweet is located steps away from our Uptown Regency property and offers veggie and gluten free options. Come back at night and visit their bar, Big Chicks right next door for drinks and dancing!
