Location

Good thing: Evanston Place has a good location, which is 12 mins walk to the MFC building. They allow pets(with fees), and they just newly constructed.
Bad thing: The overpriced rent, small gym(couple running machines), prolonged response from the office(bad management). The apartments facing Chicago Ave. is terrible because not much sun received and the extreme noise level (whole night).

Expensive but close

The location is what convinced us and it has been very practical to be so close to the university, everyday shopping and social gatherings. The renovated apartments are very nice and we have only had minor maintenance issues so far, but do not expect everything to be new. It is expensive, there is no way around that. I look out towards the lake every time I remember how much we are paying to feel better about it.

Bike racks are always crowded and they have not delivered on their promise to remove unused bikes. Cannot talk about the amenities because I have only used the tech room (always freezing).

Paying for Location--and it's worth it

The convenience cannot be beat: Whole Food across the intersection; less than 15 minute walk to the Hub; three blocks from the L. Is rent a little high for units that don't have in-apartment washer/dryer and minimal amenities beyond the great pooldeck? Yes. But the renovated units are outstanding in fit and finish.

Practical and Basic

Pretty much everything about the apartment has turned out to be adequate for all our needs for a couple with one partner in grad school, no kids, and a dog ($500 deposit and $20/month). The staff is friendly and responsive. The gym is basic hotel style, but nice to have when it's cold. The pool and deck are basic, but have nice views of the Lake. Convenient garage with plenty of space and reserved parking spots for $90/spot. The location is a plus over other options for Kellogg for the price range. It's probably a good five minutes closer to the global hub than some of the other options and just as close to everything downtown. Only downsides are the appliances and kitchen are old and there are a lot of undergrads in the building living outside of a dorm for the first time. Most are respectful and good neighbors, but some are obnoxiously loud and throw parties during the week, smoke weed inside, etc. It's kind of a crap shoot depending on what floor you live on. Below the sixth floor, the halls are one-sided (garage is on the opposite side), so you're chances of a loud hall are less. Above the sixth floor, there are apartments on both sides of the hall.

Ok but overpriced.

Location is excellent. Overall the apartment is good, but I think it's overpriced. Common areas are not always clean and management sometimes takes a while to respond/requires a lot of follow up.

Downtown Evanston Reviews

385 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.
McManus is located right next to Evanston downtown, so everything (restaurants, bars, groceries) is very close by. It's also right next to Northwestern campus (~15-18 minutes to Kellogg Global Hub by foot), which helps quite a lot, esp. in the winter when you'd want to keep your commute as short as possible.
We are across from the movie theater and Chilis. In our local neighborhood, we have shopping, events, bars, restaurants, and are a close walk for the Tuesday night parties. The Frost Bite stops by our front door, and both Davis Street stations are a block away or less.
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
The neighborhood is great and it is centrally located. There is grass around for walking dogs and the movie theater and restaurants are close by. It is somewhat far from the new Kellogg building, but most everything is now.
Great, quiet neighbourhood. Lots of students around obviously (mainly grad students in this area).

Pricey, for sure. Not a lot of cheap grocery/food options within walking distance.

The bar scene is mediocre at best.
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.
