A yummy pastry. A warm blanket. Even a snuggle from your pup or kittie. These are some of the many ways to warm yourself from the inside out, a quality known by some as “Hygge.”
Scandinavian in origin, the concept embraces coziness in all of its most basic forms. As a result, people develop a sense of well-being and contentment, while living a little and maybe saying yes to that slice of cake.
It is a thought we value at The Main, where our residents can enjoy a hot cup of complimentary, freshly brewed coffee every day of the week, get cozy in our resident lounge, and hug their pets in their pet-friendly luxury apartment homes.
Fortunately for our residents, that is only the beginning of the hygge way of life. Located in the thriving niche neighborhood of The Main-Dempster Mile, residents can stock up on eight of the Hygge essentials at stores they can walk to.
The Mile is home to a community of more than 200 independent businesses located along Chicago Avenue, Main Street and Dempster Street, many of which offer a variety of Hygge-friendly goodies.
The area is anchored by two CTA stations and the Main Street Metra station, creating a transit-oriented and walkable spot.
From candles at Four Finches Flowers & Gifts and pastries at Blind Faith Cafe & Bakery to craft supplies at Evanston Stitchworks and journals at Ten Thousand Villages, Hygge essentials are easy to find along The Mile.*
“At The Main we strive to have our residents take ownership of the neighborhood on what we call ‘our corner of Evanston,’” said Vanessa Bigaud, leasing consultant at The Main. “We are so fortunate to be surrounded by such a vibrant neighborhood with so many different walkable options for our residents.”
Each apartment home at The Main features stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, premium quartz countertops, and an in-home washer and dryer. No detail is too small when it comes to comfort at The Main.
Bigaud said having local restaurants, businesses and boutiques like the ones along The Main-Dempster Mile all within walking distance enhances the living experience for residents of the Main, “where quality, community, and easy living combine to offer you the ideal luxury apartment community.”
"Our neighborhood is rich in experiences, in addition to having a ton of cute restaurants, convenient services and unique, artisan retail offerings," added Main-Dempster Mile Executive Director Katherine Gotsick.
