Excellent building, slightly more pricey but if you can afford it, its worth every $$. West Loop is one of the best neighborhoods to live in, and this building is arguably the best one in West Loop. What did you like most: Amenities, location, the fact that its small so you actually know people. What did you like least: management isn't amazing, attitude wise.

The units are new with updated appliances. My unit has in-unit washer/dryer and a personal balcony. While the management is not great, the units make it worth living here.

Lots of natural light.

What did you like least?

Poor cable connection, and the management team.

It's a great building, but too expensive. I think it's priced fairly, but we've decided it's out of our budget. It has the most expensive one bedrooms in West Loop.

What did you like most?

The pool and amenities.

What did you like least?

The price!
