Talk about living right.
The newly opened 200-unit development in the heart of downtown Oak Park -- a couple of blocks from the L -- is being touted as a green, environmentally friendly rental complex.
The building, on the southeast corner of Ontario and Harlem, was designed with sweeping roof overhangs and balconies on two interconnected buildings —one 14 stories and the other 6 stories, the Sun-Times reported Thursday.
The ground floor of the Oak Park Place Apartments offers tenants shopping at a new Trader Joe’s -- featuring organic foods, to boot.
