Park Evanston - worth the location

Park Evanston is the best location with incredible views. One beds don't have laundry in-unit (1.5 and above do), but it has been worth it for us. The laundry in the building is always empty, clean, and easy to use. Our apartment is only 600 sq ft, but it's laid out very efficiently and feels bigger than some of the E2 units I've seen. The gym is also great and usually pretty quiet. Been a great experience thus far!

Great building and perfectly located!

This is a great apartment building; the location is great, the common areas of the building are really nice and easy to find a space in, and the rooftop view is spectacular. Only trouble is a very strict property management co - but after moving in, you don't really need to deal with them.

Nice Apartment

Very nice building with a decent sized gym. Management and maintenance are very responsive. Only downside is other residents get very upset if you are being loud.

Underrated Housing for Kellogg

I have always been surprised by why more Kellogg students do not live in Park Evanston. It is in a great location, good value, and newly renovated amenities including a decent gym and pool space. Most apartments are newly renovated as well.

Quiet, but spacious

Park Evanston is in a fantastic location (directly above a Whole Foods, 15 min walk to campus, heart of the downtown restaurants etc.) The interior of the apartments are relatively updated (all kitchen and communal areas have been redone). The bedrooms do have carpet, but it feels clean and cozy. Anything larger than a 1 bedroom has w/d in unit. Main downsides are: no garbage disposal, low shower heads (although good pressure!), and the building only houses a handful of b-school students (many are undergrad or other grad students).

Park Ev

Park Evanston is a great location close to everything in downtown Evanston and a very easy walk to Kellogg. The amenities in the building are great, the management is really friendly and the apartments are all recently renovated. The main issue I've experienced is that they shut off the A/C around October and because of all of the sun on the building and the lack of ability to open windows beyond a few inches cracked, certain apartments get very overheated.

Downtown Evanston Reviews

461 reviews
Downtown is the place to live. You can walk to get groceries, get to campus within 20 minutes walking, even shorter by bus or quickest by bike. Most people live downtown so social activities revolve around apartment hangs/pregames and local bars.
Love the location of E2. While it's not quite in downtown, it's closer to the Hub than downtown and a 5-10 minute walk from any restaurants/bars
This is a prime location - 5 minutes from E2, Optima Horizons, and McManus. Across from the movie theater and Chili's
Easy access to Target, CVS, Coletivo. Also bus stop that goes to school right across the stret!
Everything you need is close by. 2 minute walk to the L and the metra (train to Chicago)
Kellogg students, NU students and some elderly. Few families. Lots of pets.
Evanston is great. The apartment is near Trader Joes, Jewel Osco, Binny's and Whole Foods (5 min walking). Lots of restaurant options nearby as well as anything you'd need for errands (post office, target, gyms, etc).
Perfect for grad school at Northwestern, but otherwise feels a bit suburban without a booming downtown. There are some good food/bar options, but also a handful of abandoned/empty retail locations -- I'm hoping that means new coffee shops/food venues are coming, but it doesn't look like it just yet.
