Maple Grove Review - great value for money

Great value for money, however don't expect something similar to E2 or similar buildings. Floor space is great compared to the modern apartments and a lot is possible. Davis Street Station is a 5 min walk and the building is next to the police station.

Spacious, low frills apartment

Very spacious apartments at great prices. Building has everything you need, but does not have high rise frills.

Good, though not always responsive

When dealing with property management, it is quite convenient and they are kind of efficient. Yet, the heat is not always functioning well in winter, though still tolerable.

Extremely Affordable and Spacious

The apartment is less modern than other Evanston properties, but is more spacious and rent is ~60% of what other Kellogg students are paying to stay in more modern luxury buildings. Getting to places in downtown Evanston is very easy by foot, and the only downside is the Global Hub is about a 30 minute walk. If you have a bike, it's an easy ride and a moot point. All in all I think the cost savings here makes this an excellent spot for Kellogg students without compromising much.

Great place for the money

If you're looking for a cheaper option than the Optimas and a nicer option than 1500 Chicago, this is a great place!

Very Solid Building, lots of space. Little far from campus

Wanted a true 1 bedroom and was able to find a nice one here within a student budget. Unit has tons of closet space, open layout and all necessary appliances. Also laundry room, package room and a small gym in the building. Trade-off is it's about 5 minutes further from Kellogg than you'd ideally want. No issue when the weather is nice, but definitely a factor in the winter. Building management is also really good. Have had a couple things that needed to be fixed and everything was immediately resolved. Also not a ton of Kellogg students, a few, but mostly a random mix of people.

Downtown Evanston Reviews

506 reviews
Downtown Evanston has everything you need. E2 is walkable to campus, a Target, and plenty of restaurants, as well as Metra and L stations to get to Chicago. Right across the street is a Subway, a Thai restaurant, and a pizza place, plus there’s a 7-Eleven about a block away, so you’re very close to options if you need food in a pinch.
Close to downtown Evanston but a bit far from E2/the reserve. One of closest apartments to Trader Joes/Whole Foods/Jewel Osco while also being close to campus. Very close to the lake!
Downtown Evanston has everything you need from a downtown including grocery stores, restaurants, and convenience stores.
Downtown Evanston is great - plenty of great food within walking distance, Metra and El trains right nearby, a really nice place to be. Only downside is it's far from school and the only truly walkable grocery store is a Whole Foods, which can get expensive. Overall, wouldn't want to live elsewhere though.
Close to grocery stores and restaurants. Very easy access to Lake Michigan as well!
There isn't much to do here, but that's true pretty much everywhere in Evanston. We're in walking distance to all of "downtown" Evanston, so restaurants / fast food / subway, etc. It's a slightly longer walk than desired to Kellogg, but that's fine.
The apartment is central to downtown and is walking distance to most bars, restaurants, shops, beach, etc. Evanston is a bit of a sleepy town (especially during the pandemic...I've been told it was much more vibrant pre-pandemic).
I live just south of the main downtown area, and it's the perfect intersection of being close to the action but also a bit removed when you want some quiet. I like being a in a more residential pocket, so there is slightly less foot traffic and really nice areas to walk around with a dog, etc.
