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.

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

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.
