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.

Love the view and the location

Never want to leave just because the location is so great. Especially as someone who likes to have their car in the city! Across the street from Trader Joes and Jewel. Plenty of quick lunch spots in the area. Couple of nice bars/restaurants in walking distance.

South Loop

Great apartment in the heart of south loop. Apartment offers 24hr gym, 24 hr laundry facilities, 24hr concierge. Located next to many great restaurants, grocery places , train and buses. The apartment is pet friendly, with some restriction on size. Staff are very friendly and always willing to go above and beyond to solve any issue that may arise.

Close to everything

In the heart of South Loop, Park Michigan Apartment is amazing. The staff is always available and friendly. The location is great; next to soldier field, magnificent mile and lots of restaurants. There is a membership to snap fitness included in the rent. The apartments are spacious and the views are amazing. From my apartment I can see all the way to navy pier. The fireworks are like viewing on a HD television.
