Love having in-unit washer and dryer

Apartment is nice with big windows and an in-unit washer and dryer. Bathroom is large with nice shower.

Relatively small living room and bedrooms. Well lit. Nice appliances in kitchen.

Top floor community space is nice for hosting small groups and for studying. If you want to host a party on the top floor, management is rigid about letting in anyone that isn’t on the guest list.

Great Space, Bad Management

I've had a pretty good experience living here. The front desk and maintenance staff are wonderful! I've had bad experiences with the management - they aren't good at communicating if there is a problem.

The unit itself is nice. It's small and not as "luxurious" as the ads made it sound, but it's quiet and the view is great.

beautifully decorated, great location

The rooftop of this place is wonderful, also the front desk and matanence employees are gerat and I actually got to become friends with them. Dog friendly with easy access to outside in the back with doggy bags and everything. Super close to the Chicago theater and everything downtown Chicago has to offer.

63 E Lake

This apartment is great overall. I would recommend friends to live here. Great location. Close to CTA. I do not consider moving anytime soon. The price of rent is worth everything that the building had to offer. I would like to find a bigger apartment in the building.

Great building

I like this apt building a lot. The only downside is that my apt windows don't close easily. This is a huge hassle and I always have to call the concierge downstairs to help me with this (but they are very accommodating). The management is also great!

The Loop Reviews

62 reviews
Love the neighborhood! As long as you don't mind an influx of tourists in the summer, it's a great place to live. It's a quick walk to Millennium Park & the lake. It's also very easy to get to the River North area. It's a central area for the CTA and walkable to the Metra. Some restaurants are closed early and on weekends, but there are more places open the closer you get to Michigan Ave.
The Loop is an unlikely place to live but I love it. You are in the heart of the city, close to every L line possible, very good restaurants and walking distance to River North without paying River North prices for apartments. Apartments are smaller throughout the neighborhood but if you are an urbanite and don't mind limited closet space you will love it here. Mostly everyone is walking distance to work.
The Loop has pros and cons. Living in the Loop is nice because during the day up until about 8 p.m. there are people walking around the streets which is nice because you feel more secure walking. However, on weekends and after a certain time at night it empties and it can be a little eerie.

That being said, if you're anywhere near State St. or the Mag mile, there's pretty much people around at any given hour. It's fun to live downtown because the streets are bustling with interesting people, sometimes there's live music on street corners and there are a lot of restaurants and shops.
The loop is always bustling and is a fun place to live. We are right near the lake, and it's super easy to get to State or Michigan. It's a pretty central location. The only downside is it's a very touristy area, and to go to the bars and restaurants we like we have to walk over about 15 minutes to River North.
The "bucket boys" place themselves at the intersection of Michigan and Randolph and often play all day. The sound is so loud and irritating that it often wakes me up on the weekends and I am unable to study in my apartment. The only way to get them to leave is to call the cops and even then the cops will take forever to do anything.
Great location close to blue, brown, green, pink, orange and red lines. 10 minute walk to State St., 5-10 minutes to River North, 15 minutes to Michigan Avenue. Grocery stores aren't really walkable but most people in the building use PeaPod/Instacart. Safe to walk around at night. A lot of new restaurants (quick service) opening in the area.
The apartment is in a business area so most things immediately nearby shut down after about 7 on weekdays and aren't open on weekends. It's very easy to get elsewhere in the city though to more exciting neighborhoods, the centrality is why we chose it.
The neighbor is a growing area. There are several new restaurants which has made it nice! Transportation is so easy with everything steps away.
