We like the building a lot and think it was our best option, but it doesn't come without issues.

What did you like most?

The apartment is very practical. There is plenty of square footage and a lot of storage space in the form of closets and cabinets. We also have a beautiful view we love. We are very conveniently located to 3 L stops and tons of buses. We also live near two grocery stores. Maintenance is incredibly responsive and friendly.

What did you like least?

The kitchen and the bathrooms have not been updated in a long time. The floors/grout are so stained and we have tried everything to get them cleaned. The street gets loud at night because it is the intersection of Roosevelt and Michigan. You do have to pay $150 a year for the gym and comparable buildings offer the gym for free. The heating is all electric which will be a huge bill in the winter. One room doesn't have a proper heating unit. It has a small little fan that heats up/cools down the room but I am worried if it will work in the winter. Sometimes, staff members are not super friendly and will deny us packages. Neighbors smoke in the building and there is nothing done about it.

Washers at the laundry room are always broken.

Okay place in general, dog friendly, generally quiet but also tolerant of weekend parties.

What did you like most?

location is convenient.

What did you like least?

Package pickup is part of the dry cleaner, so not always available, temperature control (AC/Heat units) are terrible, and very loud.

Neighborhood

The South Loop has been the center of new residential construction in Chicago for the last decade as people have realized just how convenient it is. South Loop boasts a large amount of green space, Soldier Field, and an easy commute to The Loop. While many South Loop buildings are brand new high rises, the rent is comparably more affordable than other neighborhoods.

Taking a lakeshore stroll or running along the lake is easy for South Loopers, with its convenient location. Residents of South Loop can be found dining outside at a cafe or taking advantage of their building’s ample amenities on weeknights. The weekends in South Loop are spent walking to Shedd Aquarium or Adler planetarium for whimsical exploration. Or, using the money saved on rent to attend Lollapalooza or go shopping downtown.


Because South Loop is mostly residential, the nightlife options here are slim to none. Most people head downtown for their entertainment, which makes this neighborhood a quiet place to settle down.
