The second residential building at the South Market district, this one is distinguished by its hip design, which you can get a taste of from the large, colorful staircase doubling as a common area outside. Rooms have stylish fixtures and hardwood floors throughout. There's no pool here, but there is a roof deck and a gym. Plus, Higher Power yoga and cycling studio just moved in. Rents at The Beacon start at $1,700 for a one-bedroom, $2,300 for a two-bedroom, and $6,500 for a penthouse.

5. The Gentilly

Building amenities include free WiFi in common areas and courtyards with grilling stations.

6. The Paramount
