This is one of few non-student high rise apartment buildings in Hyde Park that is not owned by MAC. Most units are rented-out condos, with some owned by the management company. The renovation of this building was done VERY well and each unit looks like it belongs in the South Loop (and you'd probably wind up paying much more per month to live in this exact building transplanted a few neighborhoods north). The building manager is friendly and present, but does have some odd rules. I'd say the gym in the building is pretty lacking (just a treadmill, bike, elliptical and some free weights put in to a room the size of a small bedroom), but there is indoor bike parking and a secure area to receive packages.

What did you like most?

The building is mostly occupied by professional students (lots of med students), UChicago staff members, and medical residents. It's VERY quiet, noise was never a concern. I also liked that it was well updated-- very modern fixtures and the updates are high quality (so, really high-end fixtures in the kitchens and bathrooms-- not just shiny new stuff that breaks easily).

What did you like least?

We did have a security incident at one time where packages were stolen from the mailroom. I feel it was handled well in that the building stepped up front door security afterward but it was unfortunate and did cause retrieving packages to be more difficult (after the incident, you had to sign out your packages with the building manager, and only when he was in the building, which was during the day when most people are at school/working).

Very pleasant - my wife and I were looking to move to a quieter neighborhood and Hyde Park is excellent.
