Life in Evanston is an eclectic mix of college town charm and city fun. Life at 1576 Oak embodies this mix, with a vintage building filled with thoughtful amenities. Speaking of eclectic, John Hughes' quirky Molly Ringwald classic, *Sixteen Candles*, was filmed in Evanston.\n\n1576 Oak may not be Molly Ringwald's movie home, but we think she'd choose it given the option. The renovated apartments that feature hardwood floors, granite and stainless are pretty irresistible, even for a movie star.\n\nAt 1576 Oak, you'll also enjoy a star package of amenities that include Internet, DirecTV and a Fitness Center.

Once upon a time, there was a chic hotel called The Evanshire in downtown Evanston. Today, it's a renovated apartment building right on the corner of Main Street near Northwestern University.\n\nWe've changed a few things since the building's fairytale beginning- hardwood floors, remodeled kitchens, updated bathrooms - all the while maintaining 860 Hinman's architectural beauty.\n\nLiving in the midst of one of Evanston's most vibrant neighborhoods offers everything from artfully crafted meals to local brews. So, happily ever after is waiting for you on the corner of Main Street and Hinman Avenue.
