The building itself is great! The units are mostly owned by individuals who may rent it out, so there seems to be a fair variability among quality of landlords and prices of units. We happen to have a great unit for an excellent price, and a landlord who lives out of state but pretty much gives us the flexibility to do whatever we want.

What did you like most?

Anemities in the building are great, and priceless for those Chicago winters when you dont want to go outside. You can even get to a dry cleaners and a restaurant through a back door in the lobby!

What did you like least?

I used to think Streeterville was a very impersonal neighborhood with a lot of tourists, which I didn't like. However the longer I live in my building I'm starting to meet a lot of fun young professionals who have become close friends, and a handful of my friends have also moved into the building because of the good reputation. Nonetheless the neighborhood is occasionally plagued with huge traffic jams and crowded sidewalks.... you just have to learn to live with it.
