Quiet and stylish, a bit pricey

Pros: Stylish and in good condition. It was completed ~2013 and has undergone renovations of all public spaces in the last ~year. Nice rooftop with areas to lounge, grill and a hot tub. Indoor pool but small. Private gym is quite good and includes a spa. HVAC, appliances, and water all work well. Maintenance staff is very responsive. Doormen are friendly and professional. Excellent soundproofing. Building attracts a generally quieter, somewhat older clientele. NBC and Gleacher are just out the front door and MPP/Metra/#6 bus are <10 minute walk. Runaway exercise studio is in the building next door.

Cons: A bit pricey. Not far from the hospital, so ambulance sirens. New shades recently installed in the units are too sheer--I bought an eye mask for sleeping. Construction is underway at the Tribune Building nearby--bit of a wild card what effect that will have on noise/dust, but it will definitely obscure the rooftop's view.

If you want a little distance from the MPP scene and a quieter, more polished spot, Aston is a solid choice.

Streeterville Reviews

Very safe. Easy access to the lakefront and riverwalk. Relatively quiet in the evening. Skews older. Nearby River North, where the restaurant scene is better and more lively.
A bit of a hike to the train near MPP each morning

Don't think that Streeterville is multi-level -- makes it hard to call Ubers and to walk place -- also far from the subway lines

Limited bars and restaurants although there is a Whole Foods, Target, Corepower Yoga, etc. nearby
Streeterville is a very nice neighborhood. There are plenty of parks and grocery stores. There is some late night crime due to the location downtown and close to the beach, but overall nothing worse than anywhere else.

There are some more expensive restaurants and fast food places. Navy Pier attracts a lot of tourists and they can be annoying to navigate around.
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.
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.
