Great Location and Amenities

My only complaint is that there has been construction in the lobby for the past 11 months, which is a bit frustrating.

Great spot with great amenities

Renting was a last-minute decision for me. I moved here from charlotte, NC for a job, and it was very spurr-of-the-moment. I was lucky enough to find this spot in the middle of South Loop, Chicago and I could not be happier. The location is convenient, the apartment looks great on the inside and I have a fantastic lake view.

Great for the price

I really like sky55. It’s got amazing amentities and honestly it’s a great value for your dollar. I tried finding other apartments nearby but they were all out of my price range or did not offer anything he convenience of a nearby grocery store and transit station.

Amazing View

The views from this building are incredible. You can see solider field and Lake Michigan on one end or Chicagos skyline the other way. All the apartments including the smallest size are very well designed so it never feels small. The management is great and very helpful. This is a newer building so the price is def worth it.

South Loop Reviews

90 reviews
The neighborhood is great. It has become so much nicer in the past few years due to all of the new building that have gone up. The Roosevelt stop can be a little sketchy from time to time but I just stay alert when I’m over there. Having a Trader Joe’s, Mariano’s, Target, Wholefoods and Jewel nearby is super nice.
Trader Joes across the street. Jewel Osco on the next block down Wabash. Red, orange and green line around the corner at Roosevelt Station. A plethora of bars, restaurants and lounges in the area as well. Easy run to Lake Michigan when warm, near Soldier Field, aquarium and Field museum.
Growing neighborhood. New buildings being put up constantly. A lot of new construction to shape the area. And lots of food & shopping options nearby.

Happy to be near CTA stops, but that’s the only concerning area (people).
The neighborhood is great because there is a CVS across the street and a Target a little ways up the street, so shopping is made easy. The access to multiple train lines and buses is definitely appealing.
There is some crime, but as long as your vigilant South Loop is as fine of a place to live as any
I love south loop. It's conveniently close to both school and night life.
I love South Loop. It's close enough to Hyde Park that you don't feel like you have a terrible commute to get to the law school, and it's in the city enough that you feel like you're in Chicago.
The streets are nice and wide. It's busy, but not too busy. There are grocery stores and a couple of decent food options - it's a perfect compromise for a law student that still wants to be in Chicago proper.
Printer's Row is near the Loop and train stations and is therefore easily accessible. It's also near Grant Park and the Lake which is great during the summer. There are some decent restaurants and a few bars, but if you're young you'll probably be heading up to River North and further north for a night out. Overall, the neighborhood feels very friendly but has a great location, and new construction in the South Loop will surely make Printer's Row even better.
