This is a pre-war condo building in which I rent from a unit owner. The building is beautiful and the location is fantastic. Being over 100 years old, there are definitely areas for improvement in the building, but all-in-all, for a classic building, it is a nice living experience

This building has been great for me so far. It's well-maintained by the staff. Almost entirely owned condos rather than apartments; my roommate and I rent from the owner of our unit, which has worked out well so far. As for the location, we're right across the street from a large park / pond area, it's close to the beach and lake shore bike path, I can bike to just about anywhere in the city within 20 minutes, Wrigley Field is a 20-30 minute walk, and there are lots of bars and restaurants in close walking distance. I've lived in this neighborhood for 3+ years and highly recommend it for young professionals.
