188 W Randolph Street is a recently renovated (2012), old construction (1929), full-amenity rental building in the Loop. One of the more unique buildings in the entire city (indoor chess board) with a lot of personality. The units have exceptional old style finishings, but are not very updated. Location is convenient for those working in the Loop.

The building itself is great for people who like living downtown, with amenities and friendly staff. I don't like living in the Loop, but am there only for a short while as my husband finishes his work contract and grad school. The building is a young community, so can be social and party-friendly in the communal spaces. Management takes care of maintenance requests quickly and to satisfaction. They nickel & dime you, and aren't flexible in negotiations of rent or lease terms. Storage units are in building but are expensive. Lighting in the unit is terrible - there are only a few fixed/built-in lights and the rest you must bring in. Living on the 6th floor means we get no natural sunlight, so I'd recommend living on a higher floor on the south-facing side to avoid being right next to the El.

What did you like most?

The ease of transportation from the building (close to lots of El stops, buses, cabs/Uber, multiple Divvy stations).

What did you like least?

The location - right next to the El, in the Loop with no feeling of neighborhood.

Mar 2018

Excellent. Would not hesitate to continue my lease if the rent doesn't increase significantly.

What did you like most?

Fantastic pool and excellent location for public transportation (1 block walk from Clark/Lake and Washington/Wells stations)

What did you like least?

Noise from the train is reduced the higher you live, but not completely. No close (within 5 minutes walk) grocery shopping options.
