Sweet Chicago Rental in Chicago's West Loop for $1350

The West Loop -- historically the meatpacking district of town-- is known for residential living in converted old factories. The result is typically appealing characteristics of high ceilings, industrial fixtures, and a superfluous amount of light, as with this sweet rental.

Reminiscent of urban living in New York's SoHo, an open-space studio is unconvential living for most Chicagoans. But once you get used to it, this sweet rental's got some great features: exposed brick, timber beams and hardwood floors.
