Great!!! Lakeshore East is like a little suburb in the middle of the city. It's very quiet and clean. It has a good mixture of families, couples as well as elders. Super dog friendly as well! I feel very safe walking my dog late at night as there is security in every surrounding building. The neighborhood is also a short walk to all the best restaurants/ nightlife Chicago has to offer.

What did you like least?

It gets a little touristy during the summer time and people like to come here to watch the Navy Pier fireworks which can get crowded.

It's a nice area, really nice new building. Units are a tad small compared to some other neighborhoods. We are in an average two bedroom with 1100 square feet, which feels a little small for a two-bedroom. Views are great, we have a SE view over the lake and down to the Shedd. Neighborhood is nice, definitely a mix with some Booth students and young professionals, and some families. Seems a little transient but lots of neighborhoods in the city can feel that way. Most of my input would apply to the building next door too, 420 E Waterside Dr. (the Regatta). My husband and I lived there for two years, then moved here and will be here for two years. We plan on moving next summer to try a new neighborhood, likely somewhere in the West Loop. What did you like: Safety, and how nice the building and neighborhood is. Mariano's very close by and really nice park area. Everything is well-maintained. I feel safe even walking home from class at 9 pm. And my husband travels for work a lot, I feel safe here. What did you like less: "It's hard to get to public transportation, it's a 15 min or so walk to the L. There's not a lot around here. It's nice because it's quiet and secluded a bit, but we end up walking or getting an Uber just about everywhere. Ubers cannot find our building!! They always make wrong turns. Also, we get a good amount of traffic noise from Lake Shore Drive. In our last building (the Regatta) we got a lot of traffic noise from Wacker Drive because we had a unit that faced North. Just a note, I rated our Cable and Wf-Fi as good rather than excellent because we switched to RCN recently and every now and then there's issues with the cable, just minor issues with the picture freezing temporarily.

I massively enjoyed living at this building: nice neighborhood, close proximity to all the necessary amenities, secure, clean and convenient to commute to the Business School. What did you like: I think people - they have the biggest impact on the experience each dweller has during the time he/she stays at the building.
