        Chestnut Place is popular among Loyola's business school students and therefore very affordable given the size/quality of the units and the location. The big caveat to my response is that ownership changed at the beginning of 2015 and they are updating all the apartments, the main lobby and creating an online system that may accept credit card payments for rent. This will probably bump up the prices, but my guess is that they'll still try to settle somewhere below the other buildings in the area.

        What did you like most?

        The neighborhood was great, just a couple blocks from bars, food, Michigan Ave, Oak St beach and easy access to all forms of transportation (red/brown lines, cabs, buses) and the price was terrific given the location and quality of the apartment space.

        What did you like least?

        The common area was an embarrassment and having to deliver a physical check for rent was annoying in this day and age. With that said, I believe both of these are being fixed by the new management. The one other thing is that there isn't really any outdoor space, there's a tiny deck on the 2nd floor with no view and really only enough space to use the two gas grills and then take your food back to your room.

        This is an amazing first apartment in Chicago. I'm currently taking classes at Kellogg and I can walk to school every day. It's a few streets west of Michigan Ave. so you avoid most of the tourists but its also close to Michigan Ave. so there's a noticeable police presence, and it feels safe. Super close to lots of cute places to eat and the Northwestern Law/Business/Medical school campus. What did you like: The interior just got redone before we moved it so it's really nice and very clean. I love the security people--I feel very safe. What did you like less: The lobby--but they're in the process of redoing it right now!

        Great. Management isn't the greatest but they largely stay out of the way.
