Harvest Commons

BEAUTIFUL, MODERN STUDIO APARTMENTS IN THE HEART OF THE NEAR WEST SIDE

Harvest Commons, the rehabilitation of an historic Art Deco hotel on the Near West Side, offers residents bright, efficient studio units to call home.  Harvest Commons redefines “green living”, offering residents the opportunity to volunteer in the onsite urban farm, with our resident flock of chickens, and to learn about nutrition and green living from our partners Heartland Human Care Services and Heartland Alliance Health.  Additional building amenities include the restored historic lobby, on-site supportive service staff, computer lab, laundry, and bicycle storage, and Gracie’s Café, a social enterprise coffee shop.  Harvest Commons is close to multiple retail options, Union Park, and public transit.  Units feature full kitchens and baths, and are partially furnished with a twin bed and chair.
