Nice old apartment at a great location

Great place with large rooms, not many amenities, but very near downtown and NU. Parking lot with roof available and 2 elevators. Building with only 24 apartments.

Okay for the price

Pros:
Apartment is very affordable
Apartment is really clean. Cleaning guy lives in the building and he is on top of his game

Cons:
Apartment is old and desires renovations
Property manager- the guy you call when things are broken is okay. He responds when he wants to. Usually ignores your texts or calls but fixes issues within 48 hrs
Leasing office is literally the worst in the world. Google Ritchie Realty & Management Company. They can be rude, nasty, and incompetent. I only stuck it out because I subleased from previous renters and had to convert apartment to my name.

Great and affordable Apartment

Apartment is nice, with space except for the kitchen that is small. I would say is one of the most decent prices at evanston. Landlord are ok, the executive at the office are terrible. I have to pay by check.

Great value

My roommate and I pay less than $1000 to live really close to Whole Foods and the downtown Evanston restaurants. The building doesnt have many amenities, but it is a great price for the size and location.

Overall great value

Great location, about an 11 minute walk to school. It's also very close to bars and restaurants. The building itself has very little community or amenities, but its a great value for the price you pay. Only big issue I have with it is that you need a landline for the buzzer system to work.

Some nice perks but poorly maintained

I was looking for a building that had character but learned there is a difference between character or "vintage" and just plain old. I have realized it is a lot in the maintenance. In our building things frequently break down: the elevators, washing machines, and stuff in our apartment. While the management eventually fixes most things, they dont seem to be investing in the place for the long run.
To me, the perks were the price (it is less than many other buildings but still not cheap) and proximity to Northwestern, the Lake, and coffee shops/grocery stores. It is a little further from Downtown Evanston and fast food options so its also a good option if you dont mind eating at home as opposed to picking up Chipotle a lot or whatever.
Overall I am disappointed in the management more than anything. Think the building could be a lot better if they just paid attention to it.

About Downtown Evanston

Since it's home to Northwestern, Downtown Evanston is the most popular residential area for Kellogg students. Most apartment buildings in Downtown Evanston are a 20 minute walk from the Donald P.

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.
