Great location for restaurants and walking to work. Not the best for public transportation, but certainly not the worst. A new Whole Foods just opened a block away, which will be huge in the winter. Overall the area and commute counter the subtle problems with the unit (loud noise from the CTA and highway, poor shower pressure, mediocre management). The gym is serviceable and the pool is solid for working out during off hours and hanging out on a weekend. People are generally very friendly.

What did you like most?

Walking commute to the loop. Awesome restaurants and a few great bars within walking distance.

What did you like least?

Ambient noise (highway and CTA) requires me to wear earplugs at night. Poor shower pressure. Mediocre building management.

it's a building where you purchase the condo so rental units are few and far between - that means it's all of the things you want, has all the amenities, also controlled and not just a constant party, but there are social people if you want to make friends in the building, pet friendly, etc.
