Building's not terrible, the property owners are atrocious

This building (physically) is not bad, and is generally pretty well kept. The location is great, though it will be a bit far from the new Kellogg building.
BUT, the elevator breaks down on the regular.

WORSE management is terrible and dishonest, they will tell you that you can sublet, but subletting turns out to be a nearly impossible process with Evanston Neighborhood Properties (ENP). Additionally, either their staff is incompetent, there is incredible miscommunication within ENP, or archaic rules are applied unevenly amongst residents. I know several people who rent from ENP in this building and in others and everyone who I know who rents from them shares this opinion.

Great if you don't need amenities

Small studios, budget prices. No amenities, but building is perfectly good. A bit further from new Kellogg building - I haven't experienced the winter walk yet so that may change my rating. Then again, closer to downtown so good for bars and restaurants. Very few Kellogg students live in this building, so there's not a community, but it's also nice and quiet.

Just fine while at school

Doesnt have all the bells and whistles, but high ceilings, new(ish) kitchens, wood floors, and nice exposure to sunlight make this a comfortable place to live. can be a little noisy due to grove street/sherman street intersection, but location is close to everything.

Good brownstone

Good brownstone that's close to lake and downtown; a 15 min walk to campus. Building has no amenities (gym, etc) except for underground parking ($100/mo), but has been great value for what you get
