Greta building in an excellent location. Currently undergoing some remodeling projects, but after that will probably be even better/

What did you like most?

Clean building, awesome roofdeck, great in-unit views, located in a great neighborhood (short walk to Wrigleyville, but far enough away that it doesn't get crowded/noisy around the building on gamedays/weekends).

What did you like least?

Building is a mix of young professionals and retired people. The older, retired crowd can complain about noise or cause problems if you invite too many people over.

Being right by the lake shore path and close to bus stop.
