Rent a New 3-Bedroom Duplex in Pilsen for $1775

In Chicago's West Side Pilsen neighborhood, this three-bedroom, 2,000-square-foot sweet rental comes fully-loaded. The finishes are practically unheard of for a rental in this price range: living room fireplace, wine cooler, a master suite with a Jacuzzi, bathrooms with granite counters and marble tile, oak hardwood floors and Berber carpeting in the bedrooms. But, we've seen crazier things in this housing blip than really nice condos for rent, right?

Over the past decade, Pilsen, a historic and ethnically-diverse part of town, has undergone significant gentrification. In part, this growth has been driven by the public-private partnership, University Village, which is adjacent to this sweet rental. But fast-forwarding to today, the over-development in the vicinity -- much of which has gone unsold, like this one -- has ripened into a bargain for renters.
