GREAT building in improving area

The LEX itself is a fantastic property. The amenities and lobby were all just redone and look fantastic, the apartment is a great size, and the price is just right, however the neighborhood is still improving (lots of new things being built which should help).

Can't Beat My Building

Such a sense of community! The amenities are fantastic and the neighbors are so friendly. The management company does upgrades when needed and just redid the lobby and amenity spaces...they look amazing.

We are always having resident events and getting deals on local businesses. I've never had that before from a property.

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.
