Looks nice but has roaches

Our apartment is in a very safe neighborhood. We have a very spacious 1 bedroom with hardwood laminate floors, updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. BUT. There are roaches. Even if you're the cleanest person. Also the elevators are slow.

Safe building, good value

I like it for the price! My only complaint is the internet that's included doesn't work the best - we ended up having to buy our own. DirecTV is included! The doorman is also great, though and the rooftop was just redone. Bedrooms are big. The gym could use improvement. Having cats is free which is great for pet lovers - no dogs allowed. Lastly, there's no security deposit OR move in fees, you just have to pay 1st month's rent upfront.

Fantastic Choice for Young Professionals

2850 N Sheridan Rd in Lakeview is a great choice for young professionals in Chicago. I absolutely love the location- easy access to downtown via Lake Shore Drive, 5 minute walk to the lake, 2 blocks off of Broadway/ Clark/ Diversey- it's all you could ask for in the city. BJB does an excellent job at accommodating service requests, and having a 24/7 doorman is great for safety. The only downfalls I can think of- washer/dryer are not in-unit, but in a shared laundry room (which I don't mind, because there is a workout space attached to it), and there is no central A/C (also not a huge issue, because the building will install AC units for tenants, and it never gets too hot because of proximity to lake). Love it and absolutely recommend the building!

Rehabbed apt

2850 Sheridan is a great location in the city of Chicago. Variety of cuisines nearby, an upscale grocery store, a Walgreens, and a Walmart within walking distance make shopping a breeze, and of course there is a nearby Starbucks for those who like to start their day with a coffee or tea. The lake and the park are one block east, so beach yoga, running, and picnics are very accessible. The apartment itself is rehabbed and lovely, but the views are limited and aren't taken into consideration when pricing the apartments. My only real issue with the building is that the rent is over $100 more than I'll be paying one block west for the same square footage and management is very slow to respond to concerns (whether by call or email) and sometimes they don't respond at all.

Lakeview Reviews

The main reason we moved here was the neighborhood. Broadway, Clark, Diversey and Belmont are all within walking distance and offer all of the shops, restaurants, bars and grocery stores you could need. It really is in a prime, unbeatable location. Not to mention it's a block from Lake Michigan and walking distance to Lincoln Park and a short bike ride from Montrose Beach.
My street and neighborhood are usually fairly quiet. Sundays seem to be the going out day in the neighborhood but it isn't disruptive to my every day life. Overall it seems like a very safe area and being a young woman living alone, that is very important. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
The area of lakeview this apartment is in is between where the bars start in Wrigleyville at Clark and Sheffield and Boystown at Newport and Halstead. The street itself is pretty quiet but there are plenty of options for bars since it's right near Wrigley Field and Boystown. There are also plenty of great restaurant options, and it's a 6 minute walk to the Addison red line or a 10 minute walk to the Belmont stop.
I love Lakeview! There's honestly something for everyone somewhere in the neighborhood. From Wrigleyville's baseball and country bars to the rowdy drag shows of Boystown, you can have a totally new experience a few blocks from something else. Lots of great food for both a quick, cheap meal and a sit-down dinner, and some fun local shopping too.
Wrigleyville is popular with young adults and recent graduates, making it a lively neighborhood. There is easy access to the Red Line, one of the city's most popular transit lines. It's also close to Lakeshore Drive, making commute by car easy as well. The area is incredibly safe and has a decent number of restaurants and cafes. The area also has a large number of TFA Corps Members, making meetups really easy.
I love the lakeview area. It is far more affordable than the surrounding boroughs, and everyone nearby is around my age (early 20s to mid 30s). There are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, and basic amenities (grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.) within walking distance, and it still feels very safe.
Pros:
-Close to the Clark St strip in Wrigley
-Lots of good restaurants nearby
-A mile from the lakefront path, which is good for running and biking
-Plenty of public transportation options

Cons:
-The only major grocery store in the area is Trader Joe's. You can't walk to a Jewel unless you want to walk over a mile. They are building a Mariano's around Broadway and Wellington, so that will be nice.
-Occasionally loud drunk people on weekends wandering around.
-The hospital (Advocated Masonic) can also be a source of late night noise.
I absolutely love living in Lakeview East. Has a very homey community feel, and it is very safe. Right near all my public trans needs and accessible to many entertainment needs (Wrigley Field, Boystown, Lincoln Park, etc). Extremely pet friendly and family oriented neighborhood.
