About Vue53

Vue53 is a mixed-use apartment community in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. The project builds upon efforts by the University of Chicago, the city of Chicago, and the local community to create a vibrant mixed-use district on 53rd Street and to broaden the scope of products and services available to the Hyde Park and Kenwood communities. Vue53 is located near the intersection of 53rd Street and Kenwood Avenue directly north of Nicholas Park, and will contain approximately 28,000 square feet of ground-level retail, 267 apartment units, and 230 parking spaces.

Vue53 offers studios, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom apartments with spectacular views, in-unit washers and dryers, high- end finishes including stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, and an optional furniture package. Community amenities include a large multi-purpose clubhouse with WiFi, 24- hour state-of-the-art fitness center, 24-hour business center, study/gathering spaces on every other residential floor, outdoor landscaped terraces, and ample parking and bike storage. The apartments will provide new housing options for Hyde Park and Kenwood residents as well as University of Chicago graduate students.

"Vue53 provides a new mixed-use environment that both Hyde Park residents and University of Chicago students, faculty, and staff can enjoy with modern apartments and 28,000 square feet of Target-anchored retail as part of the growing 53rd Street Corridor."
