Expansive and tasty dining options. Great nightlife options. Fun pool/deck scene. Great shower pressure. Solid internet/Wi-Fi connectivity.
What Occupants Love Less
Some residents feel the neighborhood can be touristy. Some residents would have prefered a different cable provider than RCN.

I'm extremely happy with my building - to the point where I am upset that my landlord is moving back into the unit next year; I would have loved to stay for a few more years until I outgrow the place, even though I could afford to move somewhere significantly larger! The amenities are great, the building is quiet but neighbors are still very friendly, and the neighborhood is extremely convenient. I like leasing from the unit owner because it means most of my communication is with an individual whom I have gotten to know well, versus a management office where they are dealing with dozens/hundreds of tenants - in fact, I would be hesitant to lease from a management office in the future and would prefer to lease from an individual whom I trust.
What did you like most?
The location is great - close enough to the shopping on Michigan Avenue and the food/nightlife scene of River North to be convenient and varied, while far enough off major streets that the tourist traffic isn't too heavy. Building is predominantly young families with a good mix of older, retired couples and young professionals, which I think prevents the building from being too dominated by a certain 'vibe' or personality.
What did you like least?
Many of the buildings in the area were built in the 80's and then updated about 5-10 years ago, so the kitchens and bathrooms are nice but not super modern. I would have preferred updated counters (i.e., natural stone) and appliances (more energy-efficient) but everything still looks good and works well.
Amazing place to live--location was sandwiched between 2 red line stops, and Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and Jewel were all within a few blocks. It is surrounded by a vibrant River North bar and restaurant scene. As for the building itself, the roof deck is amazing and offers unobstructive westward facing views (makes for a great sunset) and the gym was top quality. The only thing missing is a pool. What did you like: gym, staff of the building and their responsiveness, cleanliness of the building, location. What did you like less: temperature control within the units left a little to be desired.
Great building to live in. Condo, have to rent directly from owner.
