Very quiet neighborhood with somewhat easy access to downtown. Building management can be quite slow to respond. The wifi in the building is horrendous and I had to buy my own router. The area is very residential. I would say the ideal demographic to live here would be 20 something single people who don't like to go out.

What did you like least?

I have to walk outside of my neighborhood to access a grocery store.

I think we overpay for the quality of fixtures, size of the apartment, and location. It's nice that we are right on the lake, but we're a 12 min walk from the el and most restaurants, bars, etc.

What did you like most?

The westward view is great. Lots of natural light makes it more pleasant in the winter.

What did you like least?

Crappy finishes, aging building, a bit overpriced.
