Overall good. I've been here for over 5 years so I obviously like it.

What did you like most?

The pool/hot tub. The fact they allow dogs.

What did you like least?

High security personnel turnover because the security supervisor is a witch. Too many units that are rented out to people on welfare. Connected to a retirement home.

Once I am in my unit it is great, but the building's management is incredibly absent. There are only 4 elevators (two double as service elevators) for 40 floors. Additionally, at least one elevator is down at all times due to service issues. The elevators have had conditional certificates for nearly a year.

The amenities and staff are amazing. It is a large building, in the city, so there are a variety of neighbors. Also, it is a dog friendly building, but that does not mean all the dogs are friendly. Overall, a great location, with great amenities and great service.

What did you like most?

Pool, dog friendly, location, view, and price.

What did you like least?

Temperature control in the units is heating and cooling and levels, but not a thermostat to set the temperature level.

Near Sky55 Chicago


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.
