Wonderful Apartment in a Great Location!

Very nice apartment and it's so close to the lake and Michigan Ave. The neighborhood is quiet (considering it's in Chicago) and pretty safe. There are only other apartments/condos around the area. The concierge staff are very nice and they just recently redid the workout room.

Beautiful, but Expensive

The Seneca is conveniently located in the Gold Coast, and has a gym. The studio I live in is extremely small, but this is an unbeatable location, with stainless steel appliances, and there is also bike storage. Biking around the city in the summer time is great, especially by the lake.

Vintage Chic in the Right Place

I absolutely love the Seneca Apartments. The people and the location is unreal! Walking distance to almost everything. A block and a half from Lake Shore Drive and a block and a half from Michigan. The security/ front desk attendants are beyond some of the best people you will ever meet.

The apartment maintenance guys are very helpful and accommodating. Whenever I need something fixed they are super quick to fix it, like that day it's fixed.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Seneca Apartments. Currently they are updating and the process is going faster than expected and I cannot wait to see the results!

Best Amenities

The Seneca is in a great location, being only a block from Michigan Ave. There is a 24 hour gym, a beautiful sun deck, and I ride my bike everywhere, so bike storage is extremely convenient. The apartments are furnished nicely with stainless steel appliances, and hardwood floors. Definitely recommend living here.

Great Location, a tad overpriced

I moved here in July 2012. You cannot beat its location -- steps away from Northwestern, Water Tower, 5 minutes to Chicago Red Lines. I believe it is a tad overpriced for what you get, however. There is a small gym and a rooftop access, but I think the finishes within the apartments could be better and laundry hook-ups at the very least. (Yes, it is an old building but "luxury" apartments have laundry in-units, I believe). The management is very responsive and extremely nice. If you are looking for location, this is perfect but you will have to pay a little more for it and get less.

Great Amenities

The Seneca is not only in a great and perfect location, but it also has fantastic amenities. The apartments themselves are beautiful and spacious, and there is a gym and a really pretty sundeck. I ride my bike everywhere, and there is bike storage, and laundry in the building

Perfect Location

Being right by the Hancock building, the Seneca is perfect. We have a really nice gym, and everything is within walking distance at the Gold Coast. Easy access to Michigan Ave shopping, and good restaurants, life on the Gold Coast is nice, but extremely EXPENSIVE

Good mid-rise, lots of privacy

It's a good apartment building. Reasonable prices, quiet, friendly staff, maintenance responds to requests within 24 hours consistently. View is not great, but it's a mid-rise so you take what you can get. Nice little Italian restaurant in the lobby.

Great building with a lot of history!

The Seneca is a great place to live, full of lots of good folks, of all ages and occupations. The building is in a great neighbourhood and has some neat features, including the newly refurbished roof desk.

The neighbourhood is safe and very accessible from pretty much anywhere downtown.

Streeterville Reviews

92 reviews
Streeterville is located in downtown Chicago. Although it is conveniently located to Northwestern and Michigan Avenue, the general vibe is still very touristy and the restaurant scene isn't the most diverse or unique.
I enjoy living in Streeterville since it's near many of Chicago attractions without feeling overwhelming like in the Loop. I am able to walk around safely at night and I like going jogging in Millennium Park. My biggest complaint would be the lack of greenery in the area and how the city can feel a little bit insulating at times. Public transportation is great. This area is pricey, which is why I decided to have a roommate.
The Streeterville area was still pretty sleepy when I moved here three years ago. Since then, there has been an incredible amount of development. New luxury apartments and condos are going up, several new restaurants, a brand new target and Whole Foods. Its become a great place for professionals who enjoy living downtown, but without the club crowds in River North.
There are a few buses that are near by that help get residents down to the loop. Also it's pretty easy to walk around and the cross walks are pedestrian friendly. I'm always able to get around by foot and buses/trains. Streeterville is a very safe neighborhood and I've never felt unsafe walking around at night. The streets are well lit.
Noise is not usually too big of an issue in this neighborhood; it's pretty quiet at night.
There are multiple grocery stores nearby for multiple choices. Also there are a bunch of great places to eat so one will not get bored with options.
Neighborhood is quite touristy especially with the underpass to the lake right by. Lots of tourists in the summer but that means you're also minutes walk away from the lake, navy pier and michigan ave. Decent amount of food in streeterville and very close to entertainment and food in river north. Walking distance to the loop and millenium park.
I think the area is nice because there is so much around... but it can get a little hectic with tourists since it is so close to Navy Pier. Especially in the summer. It is a little bit of an older crowd- I am 25 and am considered young. But everyone is nice and there is a lot to do
Close to grocery stores (Whole Foods and Treasure Island), Target Express opening later in 2015, about a 10 minute walk to red line subway but lots of nearby bus lines, LA Fitness and Planet Fitness are the closest gyms. Safe area with high foot traffic towards Navy Pier.
Streeterville is essentially a more remote (and better smelling) River North. Close to Navy Pier, so can be congested in the summer. Right on the river, which is great. Right down the road from Northwestern Medical and law school, so pretty safe neighborhood overall.
