Good apartment, terrible management

The apartment itself is very nice - good location, good appliances and generally well laid out. Unfortunately, the management (MAC Apartments) is so bad that the frustrations of dealing with them outweighs the benefits of the apartment. It took me six months to obtain full access to the building (functional key fob + name in intercom) due to MAC's incompetence and general unresponsiveness. Our building's laundry card machine has been "pending maintenance" for three months. So long as nothing ever goes wrong in the apartment (unlikely, given MAC's track record), it's a nice place, but if something goes wrong, good luck ever getting MAC to respond to it in a timely manner.

Algonquin Review

Algonquin is a really good value for a 1BR that has been renovated within the last 7 years. Mac is kind of annoying to deal with, but you only have so many options in Hyde Park, and it's been a lot better than I was anticipating at the outset. Water is included in rent, and gas (heat) is capped at $40/month, which is really nice in the winter. It's next to the Metra to get downtown, buses to UChicago and downtown, and Lake Shore Drive. It's also close to Regents, which is where a decent amount of law students live, so there's a social group right across the street. Street parking is decently easy if you're not driving somewhere every day and know how to parallel park. Definitely a good building for 1L year.

Apartment Overview

Great if you want to live near Regents but don't want to pay the Regent's price tag. Also has better appliances and higher quality hardware than Regents.

Kenwood Reviews

14 reviews
Pretty close to campus, about a 10 minute drive/bike ride. Seems safe, at least east of MLK Blvd. Pretty quiet overall, Maple Court is right next to an elementary school so there is some noise in the morning and when the kids are at recess. Hyde Park Produce is walkable, but not super close. Whole Foods is opening up at Lake Park around 51st/Hyde Park Blvd. soon. Large shopping area at 47th and Lake Park with Walgreens and Subway. Mostly fast food on 47th St. No bars, coffee shops, or anywhere nearby to hang out.
Hyde Park is on the rise if you like gentrified, bougie neighborhoods. There are more fancy restaurants coming to the neighborhood as UChicago bought out 53rd street. It's a good neighborhood for a college experience but I am speaking as a formal student. It's unclear how non-university affiliated folks feel about the changes as there is sadly not much interaction between the University and the rest of the community.
Hyde Park/Kenwood are diverse neighborhoods, which I view as a positive. I like Hyde Park Produce, but it doesn't carry a full line of groceries. Treasure Island and Whole Foods are very expensive. Safety is clearly an issue based on police and university police incident reports, but I feel safe during the day and at night if I am with another person.
It's a nice enough area, I've never felt unsafe. Not always a lot to do and there are few bars, but it's got a lot of good attributes and pretty good restaurants.
I prefer the short commute to school to living somewhere I'd have to wake up earlier. But HP is a little quiet, so depends on what you're looking for. More restaurants and shopping options are being added really quickly right now so that's a pro (Whole Foods coming soon!) but it's definitely different than living in a neighborhood in/closer to the Loop.

It's fine. It's convenient because it's close to the law school but otherwise it's pretty boring and there's not much to do. Probably the worst thing about Hyde Park is that many of the non-University apartment buildings are owned by MAC Properties, which is a terrible management company.
