Park michigan- Great Location!

What an amazing place! So close to all of the shopping centers, nearby a grocery store, right next to a CTA station. Absolutely wonderful, super convenient and nothing but positives to say :D. The only thing that I wish would change is the temperature control--during the summer, the apartment gets painfully hot.

Park Michigan- Would highly recommend

I absolutely love living at Park Michigan. It is close to the L, grocery stores, entertainment, and many great restaurants! The staff here is always easy to reach and very helpful. Maintenance is amazing. I highly recommend it! The only things I wish I could change is the price for parking. I do wish there was a pool/hot tub. However, the location, views, and amazing amount of sunlight make up for it!

Park Michigan (South Loop)

I enjoy living here very much. It is close to many forms of public transportation and taking the #2 bus makes it easy to get to and from school. The downside of living here is that without a car the commute to school can sometimes be difficult.

Overpriced, but Great Location and Friendly Staff

The location of Park Michigan is excellent, right at the border of the Loop and South Loop, which allows easy access to many different transit options, including an express bus to the law school. Trader Joes, Jewel Osco, and Walgreens are all next door. Whole Foods, a movie theater, and Target are all within walking distance.

The apartment istelf is not particularly nice. The views are fantastic, and corner units get an incredible view and amount of light. However, finishes are cheap, ceilings are a bit low, and carpet is extremely cheap. Windows do not open enough to get a breeze. The HVAC units are horrible, old, and heat on electricity, so they are very expensive to run in winter.. The units and hallways are extremely clean.

Staff is excellent. Management is kind and accomodating, particularly Mark Mybeck. Maintenance staff are extremely friendly and do a great job. The front door staff do a good job keeping the building secure.

All around solid South Loop spot

Nothing in particular stands out about Park Michigan, but everything is pretty solidly good. South loop is a great area, and PM is perfectly positioned in it; it's a block from the L, and right across the street from the park. The apartments themselves are nice, with big wraparound windows and comfortably sized rooms (and big closets!). The gym is pretty solid for a small city gym (it's a SnapFitness, so it's better than just a normal apt gym would be). Notably, PM is a block from both a Trader Joe's and a Jewel Osco. All around, it's a great place to live.

Great Location, Great Building

Perfect location for a U Chicago student, since it is very close to the 2 Express bus to Hyde park (just an 18 minute ride). Love the gym, love how it's close to the CTA station and plenty of restaurants/bars/stores. And we even have a view of Lake Michigan!

The downsides: On the expensive end for a one-bedroom. Worst is the fact that the heating is an electric wall unit in each room that is very inefficient and relatively costly - the electric bill for the winter months is over $100 (non-winter months it was more like $35).

Overall, really like the building!

Good price for what you get

Park Michigan Apartments are a great option for law students. The building amenities are well-tailored for busy people. The building collaborates with Pressbox, a dry cleaning service that does two day dry cleaning. You can drop off and pick up whenever you want. The front desk accepts packages so you don't have to be home. The gym is 24-hours. Best of all, the building is about a 3 minute walk to a Trader Joes, a Jewel, and the Red/Orange/Green lines. It's about a 5 minute walk to the 2 bus, which runs express to Chicago Law School in the morning and afternoons. It's a great place to live to be close to school but also close to downtown.

South Loop Reviews

The south loop is a very convenient location for those working in the loop. I walk to work every day. It has plenty of stores, restaurants and bars to offer and is very conveniently located to transit options
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.
I feel very safe in this neighborhood. It's close to the L and many bus lines run in this area. We are close to many of the festivals and other great entertainment happening throughout Chicago. Also some great restaurants nearby! Grocery stores are close as well. Any necessity you need is within walking distance to Park Michigan!
Being near the Roosevelt stop, I think the South Loop is great. It's up and coming, with bars and restaurants, the L right there, and right next to the museums/lakefront.

I would be more hesitant to live very south of Roosevelt, like 18th or so. Things become much quieter and it's a farther walk to things.
Although not near campus, UChicago is very easily accessible via the #2 bus (about a 20 minute commute). The area is very safe, relatively quiet, and close to down-town amenities. There are not many restaurants in walking distance, but River North restaurants are within 10 minutes via public transit.
Getting to school with a car is great, because there is never traffic on Lake Shore Drive south of soldier field. Jewel, Trader Joes, banks, a movie theater, and some good restaurants/bars are around. However, I live near the Roosevelt L station though, which is the most active part of South Loop.
Quiet neighborhood with close access to various transport options. Close to Downtown Loop area without any of the traffic/ noise. Close to the lake and Museum Campus, which offers great views and entertainment. A lot of families in the area, and I feel very safe and comfortable living here.
