What did you like most?

We lived there for 6 years, the only reason we left is because we were looking to buy. I loved EVERYTHING about living at 1225.

The only reason I wouldn't rate it a 5 is because there have been a lot of issues with the elevators recently. There are three in our building and on most days only one works. This has caused a lot of uproar since our rent is very expensive. The building is also very new so it seems strange to have such issues with the elevator. What do you like most: We love the neighborhood-living on Wells street is so great. The neighborhood makes the expensive rent very worth it-plus we work downtown so it is a great location for us. I love the front door staff and the maintenance crews. What do you like least: The management is pretty spotty and don't seem very seasoned at their jobs.

Near 1225 Old Town


Old Town, nestled between Gold Coast and Lincoln Park, takes on these two neighborhoods' attributes and blends them seamlessly. The affluent nature of Gold Coast’s high rises merges with the tree-lined streets and boutiques of Lincoln Park.

Old Town is one of Chicago’s oldest neighborhoods and is steeped in history. Residents live primarily in townhomes, 3-flats, or single family homes. However, there have been multiple new construction high rises built in the last 5 years, including Old Town Park. Old Town’s connection to the loop is via the brown line at the Sedgwick stop.

On weekday mornings, Old Towners can be found sipping on espresso at Elaine’s Coffee Call or taking a look at the latest art pieces at the contemporary art studio. Weeknights in Old Town can be spent eating at Kamehachi, the self-proclaimed “first sushi restaurant in Chicago,” then catching a comedy act at Second City Theater.
