Solid apartment for two

The condo feels both cozy and spacious, lots of natural light and typical amenities (small gym, indoor pool). Solid location if you're looking to be close to the more popular buildings, but don't want to actually live in one.

Can't beat it

819 Foster is an absolute gem. Not only is the building really nice, it is a true 10 minute walk to the hub and a 5-10 minute walk to downtown (depending where you are going). It's a smaller building (only about 14 units), all 2 bed 2 baths, and given that it is a nicer building with nicer units it tends to skew towards families and those with pets. If you're looking for a pseudo-dorm, this isn't it. The units are very nice, large with lots of closet space. You're unlikely to find better in Evanston, especially given the premium location of 819 Foster. Other downtown locations will stay say they are a 15-20 minute walk to the hub, however most of those are based on how long it was to the old building, which is ~7 minutes closer to downtown than the hub is.

Every unit comes with 2 parking spots, a covered garage and the spot right behind the garage. We used the garage for extra storage and parked in the other spot when necessary. Each unit also has a large balcony. There aren't a ton of extra amenities (gym, etc.), is the only thing. Being a smaller building, students won't be congregating regularly at Foster like they do at E2, but the building is heavy on kellogg students (i think 8 out of 14 currently rented to Kellogg) and those that live here are more tight-knit because of it (you're also only a 5 minute walk from E2, so you're not at all on an island).

Spacious, loft-style apartment!

We've had a great time living in unit #301 (note that each unit has a unique layout/design), which has very tall ceilings and a large, open living area. There are 2 full baths and a parking spot that come with this unit, which is owned by a Kellogg grad. Pets are ok in the building, though we don't have one. We're right next to the Metra and very close to the L, so it's convenient for getting downtown. Further from campus, but there's a free bus (the CTA #201) that picks up right in front of the building and drops on campus!

Loft style condo by Davis stop

This place is exceptionally spacious and has the modern touches & look of a modern loft (high pitched ceilings, concrete floor in the main area, in unit W/D, and lots of square footage for a 2 bedroom at this price in Evanston. The doorpeople are SO nice here and there is a nice small gym on site (and a tiny indoor pool too). For NU students, it's conveniently less than a block from the free 201 CTA bus that drops off at many of the main campus spots. Great for Kellogg students! And right beside both the Davis Metra and Davis el stops.

Great for families

This is a great apartment complex. I don't think there are many renters in the building, it is primarily owned condos. There is a doorman and a free gym and indoor pool. This is definitely not a party condo but would be great for a couple or a family. The location is great, 15 minute walk to classes and 5 minutes to Whole Foods etc. It is also right near the L train and the Metro for commuting downtown. Our apartment has a lot of light, a nice layout and a balcony.

Church Street Station

Amazing condo and excellent location in downtown Evanston. Right above 27 live, close to the Metra/CTA for easy access to Chicago. There's a bus that takes you right to the Jake, otherwise it's not a far walk or bike ride. Happy to show the place during DAK in case you're interested!

Industrial Chic - Nothing Like It!

It's been an awesome place to live, from the very unique look (exposed pipes and cement floor), expensive finishes (bamboo wallpaper and cool light fixtures) and huge layout. The building staff is very friendly and the 5th floor deck area is beautiful when it's nice enough to use it. There's a small gym, good enough for occasional workouts, but I wouldn't depend on it for a primary gym if you are a frequent exerciser. While we're close to outings at 27 live, the movie theater, some restaurants and steps from the metra and Davis L stop, the biggest drawback is that this building is a bit further from campus than some others. Still within a 15 minute walk, but not super convenient to pop back and forth to campus, especially during the coldest winter days. Overall, no regrets living here though!

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.
