Love Living in Lake Shore Plaza

I love living at Lake Shore Plaza. My apartment is updated, the pool is a descent size, the pool deck is huge and management is very responsive whenever something is wrong. I would highly suggest this building if you like nice but affordable living in the city!

Lake Shore Plaza

I like the apartment because it's in a great neighborhood, I have an excellent view, it's spacious and the staff is extremely nice. I don't like it because the elevator situation is super frustrating. Sometimes only one or none of them work. It's annoying with all of those people.

Older building, good value

The Streeterville area is booming and this building is one of the oldest apartment buildings in the neighborhood. Rent is below market price in the area, which is a huge plus. The real downside is that the building is starting to show its age and the management can't keep up with the necessary repairs. The elevators are always broken. Sometimes it takes up to ten minutes to get on an elevator in peak traffic hours. As for the quality inside of the unit--no complaints. Safe, quiet, clean. Other than the elevators, I'm pretty happy here.

Great Place to Live, Horrible Elevators

Everything has been wonderful but there are regularly elevators down and when they are working they are extremely scary. Most of the doormen are very friendly. There is dry cleaning in the building. Laundry space is surprisingly big but there are other tenants who seem to be running a laundry service out of there so it can be occasionally difficult to find an open machine.

Living in Streeterville

Living in Streeterville can be expensive, but it's worth it. Our view from our apartment is magnificent, I have never seen this type of view even in owned condos. Living in the city is a short term plan for us, but the location is wonderful. We are five minutes away from the lake, 7 minutes away from the river and 10 minutes away from the magnificent mile. I would strongly recommend living in the area, especially if you can split the rent with someone else :o) Thank you!

Value for money with nice location

Lake Shore Plaza has nice apartments with view to Lake Michigan and spacious rooms. The best part of their apartments is the number of closet and closet area. It is very spacious and helps to put in all you clothes, baggage and extra boxes in them. Rooms are good and maintenance staff is nice and quick. Needless to say, location is awesome with 5 min walk to Ohio beach and Navy Pier.

Nice location, good rooms but could have more amenities

Rooms are big and spacious and location of building is very nice with Whole Food and Other big stores just couple of blocks away. Michigan Ave is 4 blocks away and Navy Pier is just 10 min walk away. Management could be more pro-active in solving issues related to elevator and opening pool area.

Great location, old building

The location of Lakeshore Plaza is great. Everything else about the building is pretty subpar. The building is very old, management is ignorant, the amenities are not well maintained. In addition, there is a building being built next door which causes a lot of noise disturbances. The doormens are great though!

Old and outdated building

Very old and outdated building. Amenities are not well maintained and most of the time unavailable. Management is a pain, non responsive and neglect. This building is not worth the price! Location however is great. Next to the lake, Navy Pier, City Centre

Streeterville is incredibly safe and easy to walk around. Good shops and restaurants around the area.
streeterville is a nice area but ohio street for some reason just smells like garbage all the time.
The neighborhood is nice, close to the water, middle of downtown, pretty views o f Lake Michigan...
Lots of money so that means lots of white people so that means it's safe as shit here. Chitowwwwnnnn
I like the Streeterville neighborhood so far, there is a good amount of grocery stores and restaurants. My only complaint is that there is limited El train lines in the area.
Streeterville is an awesome place to live in the city. Equal distance is the lake and Michigan Avenue!
Pros: very safe, great transportation options in the Red line and all the busses you can think of, close to all of the entertainment and social life options of River North without the price

Cons: 35-50 minute commute via the 2 to Hyde Park (but it's a great bus! Mostly U of C commuters and very reliable.)
Best neighborhood in Chicago! Clean, safe, close proximity to a lot of dining and entertainment, easy to get around. The only issue is the traffic and crowds on summer weekends - but that's because everyone wants to be here.
