Nice condo units in

Wonderful apartment. Nice gated backyard, quiet area, tall ceilings, new finishes, garage parking for most units. Very nice! Each of the 12 - 14 units are individually owned, I think about ~50% of them are rented out currently vs. having owners live in them.

Best family-friendly condo building in Evanston

Pros - very family friendly (a third of the units are occupied by Kellogg families), <2 min. from daycare next door, pet friendly (we have a 65 lb. large dog), comes with two parking spaces (1x garage spot that can be doubled as storage, 1x outdoor spot), convenient <15 min. walk to either Kellogg or downtown Evanston, apartments are more upscale and spacious in comparison to units in other apartment buildings, <2 min. walk to the Foster train stop for anyone that needs to commute into Chicago

Cons - expensive to rent, no gym or pool

Ideal for Families

Most, if not all, of the units in the building are about 1,400 square feet with an exceptionally large master bedroom and bathroom. The second bedroom is perfect amount of space for a crib and play space, but could also fit a toddler bed or even both.

Great place for Kellogg students!

The apartment is the closest apartment to the Global Hub yet still well located in downtown Evanston. There are a lot of Kellogg students too

Do Not Recommend

Old and dirty carpet, ugly wall colour, exposed tubes, halogen lights, old kitchen furniture, very old & used furniture, twin bed, dark, poor ACs (let in cold air in winter); no trash bins, cooking equipment, cutlery, dishes even though apartment is supposed to be furnished; big chinese and Indian community;
People should stop living here to make Kellogg rebuild and refurnish it

Family Friendly Condominium

Pros - 12 minute walk to the HUB, 2x parking spots (one covered, one uncovered), <5 minute walk to the L (can't hear it passing by), tenants are half Kellogg families and half Evanston residents so the building is pretty quiet, small building (14 condominiums) that was recently constructed, accommodates pets for an additional fee

Cons - not good for singles, not close to Evanston restaurants / shopping, no amenities that bigger buildings have (pool, lounges, gym)

Perfect

Could not have possibly asked for more. As a parent of two children, the space, amenities, and building community have been exceptional. The layout is amazing, the location is great, and we couldn't be happier. Perfect place for couples or families!

Great spot for Kellogg families

819 Foster is a great place for Kellogg students with families. Garage parking. 15 min walk to campus. 10 min walk to downtown Evanston. Good Kellogg community.

Spacious, modern condos

819-821 Foster is a great 14-unit building, with many Kellogg students living there. The building has a lot of families with children, and there are also non-Kellogg residents, so it isn't a big party building. The units are all spacious with modern finishings. The community is friendly, and the building is very safe.

The hidden gem of Evanston

This is the best condo building in Evanston. It's about half Kellogg students/ half non-student owners. Spacious layout, high ceilings, nice finishings, and has more of a 'homey' feel than the large condo/apartment complexes. It's also one of the closest options to the new Global Hub and is convenietly located right by the Foster El stop.

About Northeast Evanston

Quieter than downtown with a suburban feel and calmer setting, yet still close to campus for Kellogg students. Northeast Evanston offers convenient access to transit for students who still want access to downtown Evanston. Aside from downtown, this is the most popular spot for Kellogg MBA students a...

Northeast Evanston Reviews

46 reviews
I think technically this is considered Northeast Evanston, but you'd never know it. It does feel a bit more suburban than downtown does, but you are just so close to downtown that it feels weird calling it something else. It has all the benefits of being in downtown while being a bit more peaceful.
-Ridge road near The Reserve is a bit dark, but I have never had an issue coming home late at night.
-Close to Ingraham Park and the Golf Course where we take our dog.
-Close to undergrad houses on Foster street and further north on Ridge Ave.
-Overall good neighborhood experience.
Classic college town. Some shopping and restaurants but not much variety. Lots of outdoor areas if you have a family or pet. Two L stops make Chicago highly accessible. Safe community.
Close to downtown and campus. Close to EL station, and a few restaurants. Also close to E2 and 1717 so very close to a large % of Kellogg students.
A good side of town for commuting to Northwestern - 5 mins driving/Uber. 15 min walk
Downtown Evanston is like 4 blocks away
Neighborhood is safe -- lots of other Kellogg students nearby. Occasional emails from Northwestern warning of criminal activity in the area, but I have not witnessed anything that makes me feel unsafe.

Neighborhood is also quiet as its a decent walk from the bars and other nightlife.
Walkability to the Foster CTA, E2, and the Davis Street Metra is a definite plus. Subway across the street is good for being on the run, although wish there was a coffee shop a touch closer. Would definitely recommend a bike for trips to / from the new Kellogg building.
Walking distance to downtown Evanston, the metra and the L. I really like the location though it is about 10 min walk to anything rather than being right downtown like some other places. Lots of Kellogg students if that is what you are looking for (but less than E2 if that is also what you are looking for :) ).
