It's an Okay Apartment with a Great Location

This is a historic building that was once a hotel. The rest of the street was also hotels (including some very large ones), parking lots, and the park. But recently the parking structure nearby was knocked down and a mid-rise luxury condo went up. It's nice, and very pricey, and it made it clear that this little hovel's days are numbered. I suspect the property owners will hold on to this place until the right deal comes along, and that will be the end of it.

This place is OK

The location is great, the view is great, the apartment is fine, but there is a lot of noise from the el train and from a crazy neighbor.

Old Chicago

This place is like a slice of the Old South Loop, an old building with 1920s-charm. It's near to Buddy Guy's Legends and to massive parks, and even closer to every train line anyone could want. And the management is really great. It's hard to say anything bad about it.

Studios

The studios themselves are decent and everything is new and the building itself is clean. Just only management are untrustworthy. The website says the studios are $750, I get here to see it they say $850, then the day I go to pay the move in fee they say its $875. Then the fridge was broken which I wouldn't know until I tried to use it and they never reimburse me to fix THEIR fridge.

Also, when I wrote them a check to move in, I paid the whole first month and they kept saying "its not clear, its not clear" I call my bank and it had. but they still lied. I ended up calling their financial people and had them fax me a letter that it actually cleared TWO weeks ago. Then not even coming up with an excuse they said they would not refund me the two weeks because they were holding the apartment and also they increased my rent because when I leave they have to advertise the apartment. Which they do through craigslist so it was an excuse to get more money.

I had no choice to live there because I literally had no where else to go, or anywhere else to live and I already gave them money when they started screwing me over so I lived here.. Even when they screwed me another $135 with the fridge.

So it wouldn't hurt to live else where, you are not missing anything here, and you could for sure get a place bigger and with more features (this has none) for $875.

South Loop Reviews

The neighborhood is great. It has become so much nicer in the past few years due to all of the new building that have gone up. The Roosevelt stop can be a little sketchy from time to time but I just stay alert when I’m over there. Having a Trader Joe’s, Mariano’s, Target, Wholefoods and Jewel nearby is super nice.
Trader Joes across the street. Jewel Osco on the next block down Wabash. Red, orange and green line around the corner at Roosevelt Station. A plethora of bars, restaurants and lounges in the area as well. Easy run to Lake Michigan when warm, near Soldier Field, aquarium and Field museum.
Growing neighborhood. New buildings being put up constantly. A lot of new construction to shape the area. And lots of food & shopping options nearby.

Happy to be near CTA stops, but that’s the only concerning area (people).
The neighborhood is great because there is a CVS across the street and a Target a little ways up the street, so shopping is made easy. The access to multiple train lines and buses is definitely appealing.
There is some crime, but as long as your vigilant South Loop is as fine of a place to live as any
I love south loop. It's conveniently close to both school and night life.
I love South Loop. It's close enough to Hyde Park that you don't feel like you have a terrible commute to get to the law school, and it's in the city enough that you feel like you're in Chicago.
The streets are nice and wide. It's busy, but not too busy. There are grocery stores and a couple of decent food options - it's a perfect compromise for a law student that still wants to be in Chicago proper.
Printer's Row is near the Loop and train stations and is therefore easily accessible. It's also near Grant Park and the Lake which is great during the summer. There are some decent restaurants and a few bars, but if you're young you'll probably be heading up to River North and further north for a night out. Overall, the neighborhood feels very friendly but has a great location, and new construction in the South Loop will surely make Printer's Row even better.
