Pretty Solid

The house is not so sound proof. Good thing is that it’s close to school

Close but old

The location is 10 minutes’ walk to the McCormik Foundation Center, where IMC students take classes. But the building is rather old, and the facilities breaks a lot. Also, the building doesn’t have elevators, so it’ll take efforts bringing large furnitures upstairs. And the wall is not soundproof so your living condition partly depends on your neighbors.

Great Apartment

Couldn't be happier with my apartment at 1509 Hinman. The rent has been very reasonable ($2100 for a 2 bedroom), the location is extremely convenient, and as far as apartment management companies go, BJB Evanston has been pretty easy to work with.

Beautiful, charming and spacious alternative to the high-rises.

1509-1515 Hinman is arguably the best option for someone looking at the "vintage, low-rise" housing stock in downtown Evanston. It's on a beautiful street, within easy walking distance of everything downtown (6 minutes from Davis Street L / Metra) as well as Trader Joes / Jewel Osco and just two blocks from the lakefront park. The building, for being nearly 100 years old, is in excellent condition and very well maintained. The common areas are frequently cleaned, the laundry rooms are great, and the small gym is adequate. The units themselves are very spacious, with large living rooms, a semi-separate dining area, and spacious bedroom. Each unit has a front and back exposure, and given the age, there are nice details within the unit. Electricity and Gas come to about $40/month and although wifi is included, I upgraded to a cable/internet package for $80/month. At the end of the day, you can pay a reasonable price for a beautiful and historic building, incredible space, more character, great management and an excellent location.

Solid Building, Great Management

We are happy with the building and our unit. The location is great. Management is responsive. We were able to quickly make a home of it, which was important for both me and my partner.

Great apartment and value

The apartment is a very cute, large (for the money), and gets tons of natural light. There is a small gym (treadmill, bike, etc) as well as laundry facilities downstairs. The location is great--close to the hub of Evanston and the lake, but a very quiet block. One downside is that the management can be a bit lazy about taking care of things in the common spaces. Not horrible, just slow in responding and they don't go above and beyond what is asked. I have been very happy with the apartment and love how much space I was able to afford by going with a well-maintained "vintage" building instead of modern.

Quiet, clean, and spacious

Extremely quiet and well-kept building; close to Lake Michigan running & biking paths and beaches and only a few minutes walk to all of the restaurants, bars and shops in downtown Evanston. Approximately only 10 minute walk to the Jake. The building and apartment itself are on the older side, but you get an immense amount of space and both kitchen and bathroom are renovated. Never really see anyone else around the building, but after being with everyone at school nonstop every day, really nice "retreat" to come home to in this building.

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.
