Oakwood 200 Squared

Chicago’s winter weather is notoriously frigid, but the city almost never gives in to a blizzard and Chicagoans are not known to hibernate. Located at the heart of the Loop, Oakwood 200 Squared, a brand new high-rise apartment with spacious layouts and modern amenities, has some ingenious antidotes to the chill of winter wind.

The Loop is a hotbed of nightlife, shops, theater and academia. While the prospect of exploring the neighborhood may be daunting as winter descends, residents of Oakwood 200 Squared will take comfort in the Pedway, located just two blocks east. The Pedway is a vast network of covered tunnels designed to protect Chicagoans from inclement weather. This 40-block walkway system stretches from one end of the Loop to the other and provides access to more than 50 buildings, a handful of CTA train stations and a host of underground restaurants, bars and shops. On a cold day, the Pedway is a city in itself.

Oakwood 200 Squared is within close walking distance of State Street (a major shopping destination) and Michigan Avenue (better known as the Magnificent Mile). In the winter months and during the holiday season the Loop shows no signs of slowing down. German-style market Christkindlmarket will celebrate its 16th consecutive year just blocks from Oakwood 200 Squared. The Goodman and Auditorium Theaters will present classic holiday shows, and the Lincoln Center Orchestra will feature a jazz ensemble with Wynton Marsalis. And through the winter season, Millenium Park opens their rink to ice skaters whether it’s sunny or snowing.
