Clear room with gorgeous view

This room is on the 21st floor facing south and west, so you can have a good view of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan. The room is very clean, and the island kitchen is very useful when you invite your friends. The apartment itself is also very clean and the security is good. LA fitness and Target are in the same building, so you don't have to go outside to go to these places. This is super nice during the winter.

Sherman Plaza 1br/1bth/den

Great floorplan. Every apartment is a little different, some carpeted others wood flooring. Appliances also vary from apartment to apartment depending on owner's configuration. Great location to downtown evanston.

Good quality, quiet, strict rules

Sherman plaza is probably the best building in Evanston; it is also expensive. The rooms are very nice, the location is right downtown and across from both the L and Metra stations, and the walk is manageable ~25 minutes or so to the glub. The management is very responsive and effective (unlike say E2), the internet works well, and the building actually maintains thermal control during the fall and spring when most of the others are sweltering. There are a lot of rules and the building is anti-party, so don't pick it if you plan on hosting a lot of friends. And most units are owned so it can be tough to find a spot. But overall its a great place to live if you want quiet and quality for a price.

Great building in a convenient location

Apartments at Sherman Plaza are slightly pricey, but it's a great place to live in. The staff are just fantastic, it's in a convenient location (right next to the CTA & Metra stations), and if you plan to be a regular gym-goer you can get an LA Fitness membership and not even have to step outdoors to get there. The building is also wired for hi-speed Internet (which'll cost you an extra ~40-65 a month depending on whether you want 100 or 300 Mbps speeds).

Great amenities, quiet downtown location

Sherman Plaza has been wonderful. It's a condo building, so units are generally nicer and larger than most apartment buildings. I lucked out with one of the few 1br/1ba (no den) units (~900sqft, parking and storage included). I'm on the 3rd floor, which has direct access to the resident lounge, parking garage, and LA fitness (super clutch in the winter). Floors 3-6 also have awesome lofted ceilings (11 or 12 feet high). The location is great; right next to the Metra and the L, and in the middle of all the downtown Evanston bars and restaurants, but maybe a little far from the new Global Hub. The building is quiet, which is nice, but lacks some of the community/camaraderie found at E2.

Sherman Plaza

I live in a one bedroom plus den and one bathroom. For a couple, it's the perfect amount of space. The closets could be a tad bigger, but overall there is sufficient storage. The kitchen appliances are outdated, but I think that will vary unit to unit. I really like the floor to ceiling windows and natural lighting. I control the temperature myself in unit which is nice. Also washer/drying in unit. Parking and a storage locker is included in my rent. The location is super central to downtown Evanston. Not as social as a building for students as others.

Downtown Evanston Reviews

48 reviews
Great downtown location, two blocks to Whole Foods, 8min walk to Trader Joes/Jewel, 2 blocks from the lake front, across the street from a park, decent walk to campus (and campus shuttle stop outside). It's a quick 1.5 blocks to Nevins, Prairie Moon, Bar Louie, Cupitol and Bangers and Lace, and less than 10min to all the other bars students frequent.
There's plenty to do, but it still takes some effort to get downtown. If you want the quickest ride (metra), then you have to plan ahead and deal with the (infrequent) train schedule. The purple line only runs express during rush hour. Depending on the time of day, your commute can run 20 minutes to an hour and a half.
Optima Views is in a great location. It is a two minute walk to the CTA and Metra and is also close to all of the downtown Evanston restaurants and shops. The building is also in close proximity to good workout options including Evanston Athletic Club and studios (Pure Barre & Cyclebar).
Everything is good. Except that E2 is on the western edge, slightly north of downtown, so not exactly smack in the middle. There are better properties if you want to be in the middle of downtown Evanston, all of which are no further from NU campus anyway.
I love being close to both stretches of downtown Evanston - the Dempster and Chicago intersection with Union Pizzeria, etc. and Nevins, Coralie, Vinic, etc. as well as close walking distance to Whiskey Thief, Found, Bat 17, World of Beer, La Macchina, etc.
The neighborhood is great and we are directly across the street from the movie theater and restaurants. It's easy to take the train into the city from here as well. However, when the new building opens the walk time will increase significantly.
I like being in downtown Evanston because I'm close to both the Metra and L. I also like being close to the restaurants, bars and to a decent gym. I have to walk a block to get to a park for my dog but it's not that bad.
Its nice to have everything you need within walking distance - from fast casual restaurants to bars, sit-down restaurants and CVS. It provides all the convenience you need for your busy student life.
