235 Van Buren Review

Upsides: nice well maintained high rise building. We rent a condo from the owner. Very easy to get to Hyde park via express bus and very easy to get to the rest of the city via L or bus. Multiple grocery stores within 10-20 minute walking distance. Paid parking on site. Downsides: neighborhood is mostly business oriented and closes down early during the week and most restaurants are not open on the weekend.

Conveniently Located Condo Building

Units in this building are either owner-occupied or rented by owner, about 50/50. The building is well maintained, doorman/security, secure package delivery, small grocer and men's hair salon on ground level, secure parking garage for an extra fee. The building is located right on the river at the southern boundary of the Loop. It is a 7 minute walk to the 2 and 6 buses which are convenient to get to Hyde Park (apt->law school on the 2 takes about 30 minutes if you time it right). It is a 5-10 minute walk to stops for nearly every L line and a metra stop. There's not a lot going on right around the building, but it's very easy to get anywhere else in the city. Biggest knock is that the nearest full-service grocery store is about a 15 minute walk away.

2 bedroom at 235 W Van Buren

The building is very secure and well kept. Being a condominium there are no units that are managed by the building. It is a random experience on your experience with the apartment owner.

Internal access to grocery and dry cleaner is very nice especially in cold weather.

Van Buren double room

I really like the location(Metra, CTA, highways...), it is easy to get anywhere. Also great for museums, parks, theaters.
The building is nice, the stuff is great.
I do not like that the service elevator is often not available, it's hard to get down with my bike.

235 W Van Buren Condo

Great price for 2 bedrooms in the loop - close to all major transportation, quiet building and neighborhood. It is also pet friendly. It is a relatively new and modern building and affordable than most buildings in the neighborhood. Only downside is that management has strict policies about moving in and out of the building, and fees are very high.

The Loop Reviews

222 reviews
Amazing place to have a social life! It is super close to Gleacher and to where recruiting events take place. Most Boothies live in this area and that helps creating a nice community. West loop with amazing restaurants is 2 metro stops/5min uber. TNDCs also happen walking distance. Its also where most touristic attractions are so its great for when friends/family visit you.
You should live in the Loop because it's easy for transit to campus and you're near others for group meetings. As soon as I graduate I'm planning on leaving though. You're by tons of shops and takeout/fast casual restaurants. However, I much prefer the neighborhood bars and restaurants in Lincoln Park.
Columbus plaza is on the quieter side, a few blocks away from Michigan. Tides and park millennium are even quieter but lack the river views that CP offers. It can be a bit too empty at night, which may be of concern to some. Most of the nearby restaurants in the pedway focus on serving office workers so they close around 6pm. Great access to river walk for running or biking.
This is the best neighborhood for Booth students to live, in my opinion. You can easily walk to Gleacher Center, catch the train to Harper Center, see most of your fellow students within your building or next door, and go to other neighborhoods for outings.
Living here is great because it's where all the Booth students live. It's the downtown area so it's not ideal for the social scene, but we're close enough to the action where it doesn't matter much. Also, we're across the street from the train.
Like living in the Loop to be near other students and it is not too far from other neighborhoods with good restaurants, bars, etc., but is a little far from work out studios, supermarkets, etc.
I like living in the Loop because 1) I'm close to the majority of other Booth students and 2) I'm close to the metra train, which I take ~4 days a week to get to and from campus.
The loop is a great place to live as a Booth student since it’s so quick and easy to get to campus. It’s not my favorite part of Chicago, but for school it’s a good place to be.
