Gateway makes life easy. Everything you need from leading grocery stores to restaurants to dry cleaning are all within one city block. The gym is never crowded the pool has IMO the best view of the city and everything is well maintained. The building is filled with people who like to have fun responsibly but are still friendly. The staff is always helpful and accessible. When I think of an affordable luxury mid rise in the heart of the West Loop, I think of Gateway. What do you like most: I like that the building is not over-crowded. There are only around 120 units which makes living here private but they also have community style events in the common areas that allow neighbors the chance to meet/interact. They have an online "facebook" style portal that allows residents to interact and sell furniture or services. The building sends out any and all event and lobby information as well on this portal. Packages are secure and you are immediately notified when something is ready to be picked up from downstairs. There is dry cleaning (press box) in the building as well. The east-south-west facing pool is an obvious plus with breathtaking city views of the loop and great gas grills and a fire pit. The West Loop itself is IMO the BEST place to live in the city if you enjoy city living in a community style with extremely delicious food options. It is only a 20 minute walk to Millennium Park and a 5$ cab ride to the rambunctious River North from Gateway and public transit is extremely accessible. What do you like least: They recently added additional security to the building causing you to have to buzz in before you can get to the front desk. We have a 24-hour doorman so it seemed a bit unnecessary and a hassle to have to have keys on you to even get inside of the front doors of the building into the lobby. This is an extremely safe area and in the heart of an amazing community style neighborhood so this seemed overkill.
