O.o Expensive apartment is expensive...but that's probably my Southern Suburbia price point talking. We pay about $0.50/square foot.
I'm trying to pay about $1.75/square foot or less in Chicago. I've given up on having a washer/dryer in the apt...
if you factor in that you get free parking/heat/gas/gym...it kind of works out. But yes, it is expensive (coming from Phoenix where my apt is about 1000 sqft, has w/d, includes everything and is beautiful for $699). I think I will look here though because w/d in unit is very important to me, and I of course have a car which is going to run me over $150 at many places. I don't know though. I've never paid that much for an apartment before.
