What Occupants Love
Excellent shower pressure. Friendly and approachable landlords. Easy and quick commute to work in the Loop.

Limited dining and nightlife options. Lack of building amenities. Stress-inducing elevator wait times. Some residents believe the surrounding area is touristy and unexciting on nights and weekends.

It's been fine. I moved here to be close to my office, and I knew I would be sacrificing amenities, night life, etc.

What did you like least?
Building is fairly new but wasn't built very well.
The neighborhood (financial district) is non-existent in terms of bars/restaurants. However, I enjoy living here as it is central to the city. I can hop on any of the Ls within a block from me if I want to go out for the night. I enjoy the building. Also, there are two nearby dog parks (both 5 minutes away) which is great for any pet owners. Although there are no amenities, the building's assessments are cheap compared to others.
