2 Bedroom
Moved In Dec 2020
So far, it's been great! Lots of space was a priority in a time when you can't really leave your home. The amenities are smaller and not as fancy as some other buildings we looked at, but during a pandemic I wasn't really planning on using them anyway.
What did you like most?
The unit is awesome! This is one of the most spacious 2 bedroom units I've seen in a high rise. There is more than enough space for a living area, dining area, and workstation in the main room. The appliances are all up-to-date, bedrooms are a good size, and the views are great!
What did you like least?
Sometimes we hear the loud music from next door. Heating fan in the living room is pretty loud which makes it hard to hear the TV.

Very good experience. Staff knows you and is very helpful. Any issues are dealt with promptly. Guest Suite is a nice extra. Biggest downside is small / sometimes crowded gym.


Fulton River District

Fulton River District is one of the fastest-growing residential areas in Chicago. Close to River North and The Loop, the neighborhood was once home to Chicago’s transportation and warehouse industries. Here, you’ll now find a mix of re-purposed lofts and high-rise apartments just north of West Loop and West Loop Gate. Since this neighborhood was originally used for industrial purposes, residents won’t find much greenery in this area. However, there are extensive restaurant options and easy access to grocery stores.

The Fulton River District neighborhood is home to many Chicago favorites, including Blommer Chocolate Factory (so expect the faint smell of chocolate from time to time). The offices of Fulton Market and The Loop are only a short walk away, and many residents live here for an easy commute.
