R+D659 is a new construction (2008), full-amenity condo building on the fringe of West Loop Gate.
What Occupants Love
Expansive and tasty dining options. Social/friendly residents. Quick access to the Loop and transportation options. Some residents cite west-facing units having beautiful views of the sunset.
What Occupants Love Less
Ambient noise from the CTA and highway. Doormen/Security could improve. Inefficient package handling system.

Overall, the building is good in terms of livability and commute. I did renew my lease for another year.
What did you like most?
Positives: This building is located in the heart of the restaurant district. It is an easy commute to the loop. The amenities are good more specifically the pool. The building is new so the unit fixtures are modern and up to date.
What did you like least?
Negatives: Parking is difficult if you do not want to pay for parking (ie 5-10 minute walk to park). Management is unresponsive. The building is dog friendly and as a result some times the dogs pee in the elevator and it smells for a week.
Excellent - but this is a mostly owner-occupied condo building not a rental building, so could make a difference in experience.
Great building, great location, near the highway, near downtown, great restaurants and safe
