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.
