Nearby Marina City
Older building (built in the 60's) with excellent views of downtown Chicago (lake, river, downtown, etc.). Close to every color of L train line. Amenities include internal convenience store with good beverage selection, real estate offices and dry cleaners. Communal laundry rooms are decent but each washer costs over $2 per load. Few units have washer/dryer in unit.
What did you like most?
Location, historic appeal of the building.
What did you like least?
Gym is almost non-existent, no pool, no washer/dryer in unit.
The central location is awesome and allows for easy access to stores, restaurants, bars, etc. Overall the building is fairly well maintained, but it could definitely use some updating. What did you like: The location and the outdoor space -- we have two awesome balconies. What did you like less: the tenant crowd is interesting and the doormen could be a bit friendlier.
Love Chicago. River North is a little expensive but a good time. Not a YUPPY city though. What do you like most: Close to work. What do you like least: Not as many Young Professionals and more expensive than good places in Lincoln Park and other nice and trendy neighborhoods.
