Rentals in Lake Shore East – Chandler, Regatta, Lancaster, Aqua!

As summer is drawing to a close the rental market should start heating up as September and October are hot rental months. Rentals in the Lake Shore East neighborhood are abundant if you’re looking for a two bedroom especially in 420 E. Waterside (The Regatta) or 450 E. Waterside (The Chandler). Below is a list of pricing for the newest condo buildings in Lake Shore East. Keep in mind that each condo is individually owned so prices will vary depending on unit owner and of course the size and view of the unit.

The Regatta  420 E. Waterside

One Bedrooms in The Regatta for Rent: Currently there are only two 1 Bedroom units on the market priced at $2,100 and $2,500. The more expensive unit is a 1 bed + den

Two Bedrooms in The Regatta for Rent: There are a handful of 2 Bedroom units on the market priced between $2,950 and $4,950. Big price range! What makes them different? The cheapest unit is the smallest 2 Bed in the building at only 1182 square feet and is on a lower floor. The most expensive two bedroom is just under 1500sf but is fully furnished. For those of you wanting something in the middle there are plenty in the mid to high $3,000’s available.
The Chandler  450 E. Waterside

One Bedrooms in The Chandler for Rent: Only one available at $1,950 and it is already under application! One Beds however typically run from $2,000/mo to $2,600 in the building depending on size and view.

Two Bedrooms in The Chandler for Rent: There are two currently on the market at $3,000 and $3,800/mo and then a penthouse 2 Bedroom, fully furnished available for $6,000/mo.

The Lancaster   201 N. Westshore

One Bedrooms in The Lancaster for Rent: None currently available. Pricing will range from $1,800/mo for the smallest 1 beds up to $2,400 or so for the larger units.

Two Bedrooms in The Lancaster for Rent: None currently available. Pricing will range from right around $2,800/$3,000mo on up depending on size and view. Keep in mind there is a 1 Bedroom w/ den floorplan that many times agents will call a “2 Bedroom.” These will typically be priced around $2,500.

Three Bedrooms in The Lancaster for Rent: There is currently one available at $4,500/mo. This unit has a view of the park and has a very functional floorplan.

The Aqua  225 N. Columbus

One Bedrooms in The Aqua for Rent: There are a total of four 1 Bedrooms available in the condo portion of the Aqua. Two of them are priced low in the $2,500 to $3,000 range. The other two are more expensive as they are larger. The cheaper ones are 740 to 881sf respectively while the more expensive units are just over 1200sf. The larger one beds are priced for rent at $4,200 to $4,400 range with the more expensive unit coming fully furnished.

Two Bedrooms in The Aqua for Rent: There is only one 2 Bedroom on the market at the current time. This two bedroom is quite small in my opinion as it is a 2 Bed / 2 Bath and is only 1200sf (at least small for the price). It is listed at $4,200/mo.

 

Items of Note: All of the above buildings have basic cable, internet, gas, heat, and a/c included in the assessment that the owner pays which means it is included in the rent. You just pay electricity. All the buildings have pools, fitness centers, 24hr doorstaff, etc with the exception of the Lancaster which has all these things but no pool.
