Edgewater Apartments for Rent
Welcome to The Cochran: Where community, culture, and history meet
Situated along the Granville Avenue’s arts district, The Cochran is alive with Edgewater’s cultural heartbeat of grand and historic architecture, unique businesses and galleries, and close proximity to Loyola University. Although a lot has changed since John Lewis Cochran founded and developed the then-suburb of Edgewater in the late 1880s, its inherent charm and vibrancy remain.
The Cochran, located at 1127 West Granville, mirrors the neighborhood’s charming and vibrant nature. Long-time residents and developers, Rae Ann and Bob Cercle have succeeded in bringing these elements of the neighborhood to The Cochran for residents to enjoy in these luxury Edgewater apartments. Surrounded by an array of diverse arts and entertainment establishments, the lakefront is also close by for leisurely strolls to enjoy the expansive views of Lake Michigan.
The Chicago Mosaic School, the only not-for-profit art school in North America, occupies the first and part of the second floors of The Cochran with 11 private artist studios and a gallery space. The school’s mission to increase an appreciation of the medium of mosaic fosters an open community of sharing and learning this ancient art form in a contemporary context. Its exhibition space, The Gallery of Contemporary Mosaics, features emerging and internationally-renowned artists working in mosaics in deftly curated shows throughout the year.
Many thriving businesses are nearby and make up a diverse collection of restaurants and retailers as well as grocers like Whole Foods Market and fitness establishments such as Orange Theory, and so much more. Convenience is key at The Cochran, so its proximity to so many establishments, Loyola University, and transportation options are attractive reasons to reside in these modern and luxurious apartments. Only a 20-minute drive to downtown Chicago and just around the corner from the newly-renovated Granville L station for the utmost convenience, The Cochran is also walkable to Loyola University, so it is a perfect place to reside for university administrators and professors.
