Great Units but hidden costs

The units here are great and for the price I think have much more space than MPP; however, there are a few things to take into consideration which are important to note- there is no cable/internet included like with other housing and heating is also not included and all electric, which gets very expensive in the winter.
Overall very happy with the unit though.

Corner apartment

Although the corner apartments at CP are the best, most luminous, and best views they are really cold! So when considering rent do consider the extra in electricity for heating.
I would still choose CP again, seems best price/quality option to me!

The 2br units are great value

The CP 2br units are a hidden gem. At ~1300 sqft they are the largest 2br units between mpp, Mila, tides, and 73 east. They are all corner units with great views and floor to ceiling windows. The billing amenities are not great. Gym is small and there's no pool. But being connected directly to the pedway is amazing: means you can go to the train station, stores, and restaurants without ever going outside. Gleacher center is also less than 5 minutes away.

Spacious 1-bd close to Gleacher and Millennium Station

Columbus Plaza has been a great place to live for the past half-year (including startup summer). We love the huge corner 1-bedrooms they have, the relatively roomy kitchen, lots of closet space (and free storage in a storage room on each floor), and beautiful views over the river and across to Gleacher. We have good sound insulation despite being on a low floor, so it's easy to relax or study in the apartment. We are close to MPP and Millennium Station and are connected to the station via the Pedway, so I don't have to go out into the cold until I arrive in Hyde Park each morning. We also love how dog-friendly the building is -- the doormen and maintenance staff all love our dog, and our dog loves them. Overall, this place is great, and I'd recommend it especially high for people who a) want space to host large gatherings, b) are in couples or families or don't want the dorm atmosphere, or c) enjoy a quieter building with good sound insulation.

Could not have picked a better spot

Right in the middle of downtown! Just the way I love it. Surrounded by buildings, and city life. This is certainly a place that is lively and always has fun things to do. The apartment itself is amazing. Floor-to-ceiling windows, with hardwood and granite. It's a little pricey, but it's honestly great for the value.

Decent place

I have lived here for two years. This is not a smoke free building. A lot of college students live here. The apartments are big but are not upgraded. Location of this apartment is its beat thing. Also big sized apartments also make this a good place to live.

The Loop Reviews

222 reviews
Amazing place to have a social life! It is super close to Gleacher and to where recruiting events take place. Most Boothies live in this area and that helps creating a nice community. West loop with amazing restaurants is 2 metro stops/5min uber. TNDCs also happen walking distance. Its also where most touristic attractions are so its great for when friends/family visit you.
You should live in the Loop because it's easy for transit to campus and you're near others for group meetings. As soon as I graduate I'm planning on leaving though. You're by tons of shops and takeout/fast casual restaurants. However, I much prefer the neighborhood bars and restaurants in Lincoln Park.
Columbus plaza is on the quieter side, a few blocks away from Michigan. Tides and park millennium are even quieter but lack the river views that CP offers. It can be a bit too empty at night, which may be of concern to some. Most of the nearby restaurants in the pedway focus on serving office workers so they close around 6pm. Great access to river walk for running or biking.
This is the best neighborhood for Booth students to live, in my opinion. You can easily walk to Gleacher Center, catch the train to Harper Center, see most of your fellow students within your building or next door, and go to other neighborhoods for outings.
Living here is great because it's where all the Booth students live. It's the downtown area so it's not ideal for the social scene, but we're close enough to the action where it doesn't matter much. Also, we're across the street from the train.
Like living in the Loop to be near other students and it is not too far from other neighborhoods with good restaurants, bars, etc., but is a little far from work out studios, supermarkets, etc.
I like living in the Loop because 1) I'm close to the majority of other Booth students and 2) I'm close to the metra train, which I take ~4 days a week to get to and from campus.
The loop is a great place to live as a Booth student since it’s so quick and easy to get to campus. It’s not my favorite part of Chicago, but for school it’s a good place to be.
