Dear Chicago members,
Can you please advice me a good apartment community in Des plains/ Prospect Heights area, i need to travel to Riverwoods and chicago downtown for work on alternate days. Any area in between these 2 places with moderate rent will be perfect fit.

Also i am not worried about school zone.

Thanks in advance!

Best way to Chicago Downtown from the burbs: Metra, unless you HAVE to drive. So looking for a mid point not needed.

I don't have any, other avoid apartment communities with names. They are usually ghetto or cheesey in the chicago area.

Also, I prefer des plaines between the two towns.

Sorry I can't be of much help.

Avoid the Prospect Heights apartments near Chicago Executive Airport!!
Here are suggestions from 2 other recent posts (Please use the search function-it can be quite helpful)There was a recent thread about someone looking at renting in Des Plaines or Arlington Heights (AH). Go for a newer condo building near downtown Des Plaines.
AH apartments worth looking at: Avalon, Dunton Towers, Brook Run.
Wheeling apartments worth looking at: Village Green at Arlington Club, Wooodland Creek.
Here are decent places in Buffalo Grove: Buffalo Grove Real Estate & Apartments for Rent & House Rentals - Yahoo! Real Estate
The BG apartments are close to the Forest Preserve and the Des Plaines river trail for walking/running/biking.
Wheeling: Woodland Creek has paths on its property and via the nearby Prospect Heights trail you can access Lake Arlington in Arlington Heights and the 2 mile path around 50 acre Lake Arlington. Village Green, you are about 2 miles via mellow side-street and bike path to Buffalo Creek preserve with its trails.
AH: Brook Run, about 1.5 miles via sidewalk and side streets to Lake Arlington. Avalon and Dunton Tower are right in downtown AH and the activities that provides. Also walking distance to Metra and AH library.
