Decent place, but doesn't include much

Buena:The advertisement we saw for this apartment listed everything under amenities (laundry, gym, electric, gas, water, trash, sewage, etc.) so we were shocked when we had to pay for everything but the gym. Good location though, but a little pricey.

833 Buena

Building is fairly new, good condition. Consistent issues that are consistently fixed in a timely manner. Management is very understanding and helpful. Great place to live cheap but be near the city. Dislike the lack of options aside from comcast for Internet service and tv service.

Great value for the location

Buena Shores is an incredible value for the location and property. It's a very "no frills" building, but does the trick. Karen, the property manager is very friendly and overall pretty solid landlord. On-site laundry, good location, door man during nights and weekends, and a secure package room. Apartments are in good condition. What more could you want?

Poorly managed, needs renovation

This building is poorly managed. I've had roaches multiple times. I cannot wait to leave! The appliances are so old, and they only manage certain parts of the building to make it look presentable to prospective renters. This building desperately needs a renovation.

Great Value in Uptown

Our 1 bedroom/1bath is a great value for the location and the amount of space we have. We didn't pick this building for the amenities, as the gym is small & the outdoor space is filled with smokers. Also, the elevators always break. Overall, this ia a good deal for living in the city, close to Wrigley

Good Value and View with Minimal Amenities

My husband and I were in another Group Fox building and moved to this building to save money on a deposit. The rent is VERY reasonable for the space we have, but I wish we had a balcony. The gym is small, and the space for grilling always has smokers.

Excellent location with room to grow

Walking distance from express buses and the lake, 833 W Buena is a wonderful place to live with the potential to grow. Situated near a Jewel, a Target and charming local businesses, I never traveled far from home. However, management can improve. Our building manager has a tendency to screen her calls and is not very responsive to email. The elevators and washing machines have broken down on numerous occasions though I have only rented here for a year. If they have the time and energy, Group Fox can innovate the gym, laundry room, and elevators and give their staff advanced training for a superb living experience.
