Great location. Management not that great.

Location is perfect. Close to campus and to bars, whole foods, restaurants.
Amenities are nice. Management is ok but I would expect more considering how much I pay for rent.

Great apartments but very expensive

I love my apartment: the hardwood floors, the kitchen, my amazing view, my balcony. But $2000 is a lot to pay with all the "mandatory" utilities like trash, etc that really add up, a pretty ineffective management team, and the fact that my apt shakes whenever a car drives through the bumps in the garage. The building is mostly undergrads who have their wealthy parents paying for it. Honestly, if I knew how much additional cost they tack onto your monthly bill for "utilities," I wouldn't have signed. My apartment is amazing but just doesn't seem to be totally worth it.

Living at Evanston Place

Great roofdeck and gym is never crowded, building feels more homey. Definitely a short walk to campus.

Over priced and shady management

Tons of fees hit you the first bill (e.g. pest removal) that you didn't know existed. Heat is f*cked up and your room is 90 degrees all winter -even if you turn heat off. However, you can't open window because there's loud 7am construction most mornings. Package delivery option is ridiculous and another method they price gouge you. Forced to use Comcast which sucks. Washer and dryers suck. Management team is non-responsive and promises things, but then doesn't do it. Etc.

Overpriced!

The service there leaves a lot to be desired. As one of the most expensive places in Evanston you would expect a lot more. The building also can only do heat or AC, and once they switch to heat for the winter you can't get any air conditioning. Evanston weather can be a bit unpredictable so expect a few weeks of sweating! The company also has a ton of hidden fees, so something to be aware of when factoring in pricing. The apartment itself is great, hardwood floors and big windows.

Great Location but a bit overpriced

Evanston place is in a great location relative to the Jake, bars, shopping but you pay for the location. The amenities are ok but not flash but are currently being upgraded. Having a pool in summer is also a plus.

Best Location

This is the best location for Northwestern students. Also, if you chose an apartment in the 6th floor, you will have a huge balcony.

Great location

Very quick walk to campus and downtown Evanston. Staff is very responsive on issues. The only significant downside is the building central air, which keeps the A/C off between mid September and the end of May, essentially regardless of outdoor temperature. As a result apartment temperatures can get uncomfortably warm during nice days in the fall and spring. A new workout room is supposed to open later this year which should be a nice complement to the pool/patio area.

Fantastic location!

Great location! Close to downtown, Jacobs, the lake. Has a gym, pool. Sound proofing is not great. Looks nice than it is - most of the appliances are cheap. Great for a year or two if location is important.
