Great apt. Very far from the university!

Overall my experience in this building has been very positive the only negative side is that it is very far from the university and I don't think it's worth been that far!!

Good value

Overall, the apartment has been really good. The layout and some of the features could be a bit nicer, but overall the value is good. It’s a quieter building than some other Kellogg buildings, which can be a pro or con, depending on what you’re looking for. The walk to campus is 21 minutes, or a 10 min bike ride. The management is responsive.

Very satisified

It's great and definitely a worthwhile alternative to E2. Only thing is that a lot of the "perks" often don't work properly (coffee machine, printer, TVs in gym, etc). Also elevators are SO slow and ubers often get confused if they come from the North on Ridge.

Great experience

Management is easy to work with and friendly. Not too far from metra or purple line. About 30 minute walk from hub. Overall would definitely live here again.

Great Apartment, Slightly far commute

1717 has great amenities, hard wood floors, and spacious floor plans. It is a bit farther from the Global Hub, but offers better value than other luxury apartment complexes like E2. W were surprised that the units have individual water heaters, and therefore, limited hot water supply. It's just something to be aware of - my husband and I are able to manage the use of the washing machine and dishwasher so it isn't a huge problem.

The place is great, modern many common areas and great service

Expensive, but once there, everything is great-- the place is very modern, living space is very well distributed to take advantage of the place, maintenance is really on any single issue it's quiet, people are friendly common areas are usually available and not very crowded, package room and administrative staff make our lives easier. Highly recommend if you are okay with the price (only downside...)

Downtown Evanston Reviews

281 reviews
All in all ideal downtown Evanston location. Very convenient for public transportation to Chicago, next door to local favorite Bennison's (love the late night smell of donuts baking), and walking distance to plenty of bars, restaurants, and stores. Once the Target goes up by Sherman Plaza and we have an alternative to Whole Foods close by this will be perfect.
I don't think there is any other place to live if you are a Kellogg student. Almost all the students live in this neighborhood, it's where all the restaurants are, and near the University and the train. The only place in Evanston that doesn't feels like a suburb.
Good central location in Evanston
Close to bars and other apartment buildings that other Kellogg students live in
~25 minute walk to the Global Hub
Evanston itself is just a little boring - no night life Very close to Davis Metra station and Purple Line
Most Kellogg students live in downtown Evanston, everything is walking distance, and the building is a block away from the Intercampus bus stop, and 7 min walk distance from Davis station, which is very convenient.
Pros: Great location near key Kellogg hangouts like World of Beer, Nevins, Five and Dime, Prairie Moon, etc. Also convenient to Bennison's Bakery! Great for late nights- can get home in < 5 minutes without ubering. Also near both Metra and L- ideal if you plan to spend some of your time in downtown Chicago.

Cons: Long walk from the Global hub. Closest grocery store is Whole Foods, a bit of a hike to TJ's and Jewel.
The apartment is at the center of downtown Evanston, so it is convenient in all purposes like dining, drinking, shopping, etc. Also, the CTA and Metra stations are right next to the apartment.
Evanston is cute, but it’s definitely a suburb. Lots of chain restaurants and those that aren’t chains will not impress those coming from bigger cities with great food scenes.
Slightly farther from GLUB than most places but it's been manageable. Takes me 20 mins to get to GLUB via walking. Like how it is closer to Jewel Osco and Trader Joes which is convenient when you have non-student JV at home. Also very close to Dempster street stop.
