Nice apartments in Gold Coast

I've loved living at Elm Street. It's a bit of an older building, but the pricing is very reasonable and the location (right next to the El) is outstanding.

Elm Street Plaza

The best part of this apartment is having a doorman and being super close to the redline stop, a grocery store, and multiple coffee shops. However, the amenities are not refreshed and are quite outdated (esp the gym...and the pool). Needs a refresh!

Great Location, Great Apartment

I love my apartment. The closets are my only complaint - I'm a big shoe/clothes person, and the bedroom closet space is not great. But I love everything else! The windows and views are fantastic. Location is ideal - right next to the lake (basically) and the Old Town area.

Great Apartment, Old Kitchen

I love my apartment, but the kitchen is a bit outdated and small. I would love it even more if the kitchen was redone with modern appliances and granite countertops. Windows are beautiful, building management/people are awesome and very friendly. Recently redone gym - sort of small but nice equipment and very clean.

Spacious 2 Bed 2 Bath

In the Gold Coast, it is hard to find spacious apartments that are also reasonably priced, but Elm Street Plaza has done it! Not only are the apartments spacious, but they have beautiful views of Lake Michigan with floor to ceiling windows. Elm Street Plaza is also centrally located, with grocery stores, restaurants, bars and public transportation at your fingertips. Elm Street overall has been a great place to live!

Great place

This building is amazing, especially because of it's location. 1 block from the El, next to the grocery store and just a couple of blocks from Michigan Ave, this location cannot be beat. Management is good and usually fixes problems within a couple of days.

Good value, but definitely could use an update

The apartments in Elm Street Plaza have not been renovated in many years and that is clear from the kitchens and bathrooms. However, for the price and the location, the building was a great value. Glad to have lived in this apartment for my first year in the city

Amazing location

Great location! The building itself is pretty nice as well. Apartment is spacious and bright, elevators are fast, and door men/women are nice. Management is pretty responsive when needed. The pool is a nice amenity but since it is on the ground level it can be quite shaded. The gym was newly renovated and pretty nice for a building gym. Neighbors are nice but people generally keep to themselves.

Love Elm Street Plaza

I've been living in the apartment for 2 months and absolutely LOVE it! The location doesn't get any better - right by Michigan Ave, the lake & amazing restaurants! There are many large windows in the unit which is really nice. Luckily, I have quiet neighbors so I haven't had any issues with noise complaints.
