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.

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.

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 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.

There are no hidden fees that we charge, Matt, though I do appreciate your review. All fees are very plainly and simply written out on lease agreements before they are signed. -George
