Location!!!

Sherman plaza is one of the best deals for a Evanston high-rise. Located just across the street from the subway, the building puts you in the heart of downtown Evanston - close to all restaurants, grocery stores, and bars. Best of all, you don't need to leave the warmth of the building to go to the new Target, which just moved in to the new ground-floor retail space. Units in SP also have substantial storage (lockers and parking spaces) and square footage for a lower price than many other modern high-rises in town.

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

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.
