The Flamingo

The Flamingo is across from the Shoreland, so it has the same perks as far as location goes (lake views, right by a 171 bus stop, huge park for pets, 57th St Beach, Promontory Point, etc.). However, The Flamingo is quite a bit cheaper, and the apartments, in my experience, tend to be much larger. Our apartment has an updated kitchen with new appliances, beautiful hardwood floors, awesome lake views, two huge walk-in closets in the bedroom, 2 more large storage closets, and a ton of sunlight. That said, there is not in-unit laundry (it's on the main floor, though the washers and dryers were brand new in Oct 2015), and there are not dishwashers in the apartments. But if you are looking to save a few hundred bucks a month and have a large updated space with a ton of storage, definitely check out the Flamingo! The largest one bedrooms (and best views!) are the front corner units (this is what we have).
