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 Reviews

92 reviews
Streeterville is located in downtown Chicago. Although it is conveniently located to Northwestern and Michigan Avenue, the general vibe is still very touristy and the restaurant scene isn't the most diverse or unique.
I enjoy living in Streeterville since it's near many of Chicago attractions without feeling overwhelming like in the Loop. I am able to walk around safely at night and I like going jogging in Millennium Park. My biggest complaint would be the lack of greenery in the area and how the city can feel a little bit insulating at times. Public transportation is great. This area is pricey, which is why I decided to have a roommate.
The Streeterville area was still pretty sleepy when I moved here three years ago. Since then, there has been an incredible amount of development. New luxury apartments and condos are going up, several new restaurants, a brand new target and Whole Foods. Its become a great place for professionals who enjoy living downtown, but without the club crowds in River North.
There are a few buses that are near by that help get residents down to the loop. Also it's pretty easy to walk around and the cross walks are pedestrian friendly. I'm always able to get around by foot and buses/trains. Streeterville is a very safe neighborhood and I've never felt unsafe walking around at night. The streets are well lit.
Noise is not usually too big of an issue in this neighborhood; it's pretty quiet at night.
There are multiple grocery stores nearby for multiple choices. Also there are a bunch of great places to eat so one will not get bored with options.
Neighborhood is quite touristy especially with the underpass to the lake right by. Lots of tourists in the summer but that means you're also minutes walk away from the lake, navy pier and michigan ave. Decent amount of food in streeterville and very close to entertainment and food in river north. Walking distance to the loop and millenium park.
I think the area is nice because there is so much around... but it can get a little hectic with tourists since it is so close to Navy Pier. Especially in the summer. It is a little bit of an older crowd- I am 25 and am considered young. But everyone is nice and there is a lot to do
Close to grocery stores (Whole Foods and Treasure Island), Target Express opening later in 2015, about a 10 minute walk to red line subway but lots of nearby bus lines, LA Fitness and Planet Fitness are the closest gyms. Safe area with high foot traffic towards Navy Pier.
Streeterville is essentially a more remote (and better smelling) River North. Close to Navy Pier, so can be congested in the summer. Right on the river, which is great. Right down the road from Northwestern Medical and law school, so pretty safe neighborhood overall.
