The second you step into the spectacularly ornate lobby at 443 W Wrightwood you'll wonder whether you're in a great hotel, but you'll soon begin to feel at home.

This 1920s-era building is one of Lincoln Park's showplaces, and it's just steps from the park itself. Studio and one-bedroom apartments have been updated with new kitchens and baths and new Pergo flooring, but retain their high ceilings, crown moldings, ample closet space and other vintage touches.

The building boasts a large sundeck with wraparound views of the city and lake, and a fitness center.

BJB Properties, which owns and manages thousands of units in the area, is our host in this sponsored video.
