Common Areas

Outside your apartment you’ll find a wealth of “common area” options—except there’s nothing all that common about them. Our warm and inviting dining room serves superlative meals prepared by Chef David Murphy. And the Café is our gathering place for lighter fare or a cup of coffee.

Our hallways abound with art. A wide range of nooks and niches give you space to entertain your guests, socialize with other residents, or meditate without interruption. Read in the Library, compete in the Game Room—friendly wagers only!—and express yourself in the Art Studio. The well-kept grounds and private gardens are here for the strolling. And did we mention that 30,000-sq.ft. terrace overlooking Lake Michigan?

Your neighbors compose a diverse and especially vibrant community of artists, scientists, educators and business leaders. A wealth of programs—classes, lectures, discussions, and concerts—make Montgomery Place the cultural center of East Hyde Park. Fitness and wellness classes inspire you to stay active and engaged. A wide range of transportation services will whisk you down the street to the University of Chicago, or up The Drive to Chicago’s shopping, museums and theaters.
