Expensive but worth it

For a couple, it really does make a lot of sense to spring for a true 1BR in 73 -- we have space, storage (huge), and a real bedroom door which makes our different schedules a lot easier to manage (like when I stumble in late on a Thursday). The building amenities are great (steam room!) and the leasing/front desk staff are amazing, highly recommend.

Great amenities but difficult management

Everything is super convenient at 73 East Lake and there are a lot of amenities. However, management is difficult to work with and aren't clear with community rules sometimes and arbitrarily enforces them. Rent can fluctuate from year to year.

Amazing Apartment Building with no so Great Love for Booth Studens

Love 73 East Lake. Please be aware as a Booth student that management is not too fond of Boothies and makes it hard to rent or reserve common areas for events etc. They have also started taking down concessions or other rent deals when they know Booth students will be looking to rent (late summer). Outside of this issue, I love the building.

If you want a nice building, this (or maybe MILA) is the best place for Booth students

Modern and reliable maintenance

It is a really modern and well kept building with a gym, pool and hot tub. It’s also reliable as far as maintenance and most interactions have been positive.

Fantastic, but pricey

I couldn't ask for anything more out of 73. Coming from New York and living with a partner who works, it made the most sense for us. It is a little on the expensive side, but the units are well laid out, large, and really well built. One disclaimer is that the leasing office is pretty worthless and can never really help you out how you'd like them to. They have no control/idea how unit prices will change or when units will become available so getting the unit was a pain.

The Loop Reviews

62 reviews
Love the neighborhood! As long as you don't mind an influx of tourists in the summer, it's a great place to live. It's a quick walk to Millennium Park & the lake. It's also very easy to get to the River North area. It's a central area for the CTA and walkable to the Metra. Some restaurants are closed early and on weekends, but there are more places open the closer you get to Michigan Ave.
The Loop is an unlikely place to live but I love it. You are in the heart of the city, close to every L line possible, very good restaurants and walking distance to River North without paying River North prices for apartments. Apartments are smaller throughout the neighborhood but if you are an urbanite and don't mind limited closet space you will love it here. Mostly everyone is walking distance to work.
The Loop has pros and cons. Living in the Loop is nice because during the day up until about 8 p.m. there are people walking around the streets which is nice because you feel more secure walking. However, on weekends and after a certain time at night it empties and it can be a little eerie.

That being said, if you're anywhere near State St. or the Mag mile, there's pretty much people around at any given hour. It's fun to live downtown because the streets are bustling with interesting people, sometimes there's live music on street corners and there are a lot of restaurants and shops.
The loop is always bustling and is a fun place to live. We are right near the lake, and it's super easy to get to State or Michigan. It's a pretty central location. The only downside is it's a very touristy area, and to go to the bars and restaurants we like we have to walk over about 15 minutes to River North.
The "bucket boys" place themselves at the intersection of Michigan and Randolph and often play all day. The sound is so loud and irritating that it often wakes me up on the weekends and I am unable to study in my apartment. The only way to get them to leave is to call the cops and even then the cops will take forever to do anything.
Great location close to blue, brown, green, pink, orange and red lines. 10 minute walk to State St., 5-10 minutes to River North, 15 minutes to Michigan Avenue. Grocery stores aren't really walkable but most people in the building use PeaPod/Instacart. Safe to walk around at night. A lot of new restaurants (quick service) opening in the area.
The apartment is in a business area so most things immediately nearby shut down after about 7 on weekdays and aren't open on weekends. It's very easy to get elsewhere in the city though to more exciting neighborhoods, the centrality is why we chose it.
The neighbor is a growing area. There are several new restaurants which has made it nice! Transportation is so easy with everything steps away.
