One of the best spots in Evanston

The Evanston Galleria has the best location right in downtown Evanston, making it easy to get to bars, restaurants, and grocery stores. The apartments within the building are very similar in styling, with a nice kitchen, high ceilings, great natural light, and well laid-out space. They are on the larger side of Evanston apartments. Finishes are relatively modern, and the building has much less of a "hotel" feel than some other large complexes nearby. There are a number of closets within the unit for storage, plus in-unit laundry.
We generally don't hear our neighbors, but the wall adjacent to the hallway is rather thin so sometimes we hear hallway noise as people come and go. We occasionally hear what's going on in the street, but it has not been a big issue. Also, sound does travel throughout the whole unit because walls don't go all the way to the ceiling between the bedroom and kitchen.
The building doesn't have any real amenities as compared with others in the area (no gym, meeting space), but there are 2 gyms within a block. Most (maybe all) units come with an uncovered but secure parking spot included, though individual landlords could in theory charge extra. We haven't had any problems with building maintenance, or with our landlords, but that could vary across units.

Love the space!

Tall ceilings and generally big living space is awesome. Only downside is each is individually owned so you have to luck out with your landlord / property manager to be quick in getting stuff fixed. You may have to play phone tag with like 3 people to get other work done in the apt. Overall love it though, but definitely keep expectations low for service.

Great Building, Limited Amenities

The Galleria is great! Apartments are nice and spacious and the location couldn't be better. Of all the buildings I've seen in Evanston, I'm very glad to have ended up in the Galleria. Only downside is it's a bit of an older building so limited amenities. Bathrooms are a bit small and closet space is limited as well.

Great location, nice space - limited amenities

The Galleria is mostly great to live in. It is a majority Kellogg couples, and there is a community (but not as strong as other places due to a lack of any common spaces/amenities).

Best things: high ceilings, newer interior than many condos, easy code entry for residents and guests (no doormen), individual control on AC temp, common spaces are kept very clean, located in the center of downtown (right near Target, 24hr fitness, and EAC).

Downsides: radiator system is old and makes dripping and very loud clanking noises during the winter (not just when it starts, but all the time), 1 elevator breaks every other week, and the attached parking is on the roof and uncovered.

Great location, large space for $

Galleria has been a great place to live. The location and proximity to downtown restaurants, bars, target, the new collectivo(!), and other apartment buildings is unbeatable. The apartments are large and spacious, and the high ceilings are amazing. Lots of Kellogg students, but quieter than some of the larger apartment buildings.

Overlooked gem

This is a less well-known apartment complex but it is incredible.

Large windows let in a lot of sunlight.

The floor plan makes for a smaller bedroom and tiny bathroom but very open and large living room. The ~20 ft ceiling makes the place feel huge. Great for having people over.

No amenities in the building. However, the monthly rent price reflects that. You pay less in monthly rent and then can allocate your money to the amenities you would like.

Amazing location. We are less than a block from two gyms. Across the street from multiple coffee shops. Target is less than 100 yards away. Both the Metra and Purple line are 1-2 blocks away but you don't hear them. Evanston Rocks is down the street. Overall the location is extremely central to all the locations a Kellogg student would need and central to where other Kellogg students are located.

Beautiful loft apartment

Not many amenities (no gym, common room, attendant, etc.), but beautiful apartment building in the heart of downtown Evanston. More of a students with JVs vibe here.

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.
