Great experience

I absolutely love living at Hawthorne House. The studio layout is ideal and super spacious. It is so convenient having buses (135, 146, 151) literally right outside your door. The management has been nothing but amazing and almost everything about living here is perfect. However, I have two major grievances: 1. The lockout fee is $50!! Insane, none of my other friends' buildings have any lockout fee.. 2. The roof is only open when the pool is open, I know other buildings that have it open all year round - I don't see why not.

Hawthorne House is spectacular

Great, friendly, responsive staff, in-building parking, gorgeous views and apartments, great amenities. Storage locker included! So many closets. Ceiling to floor windows. 24/7 gym on the 40th floor. Rooftop pool and grill during the warm months with an incredible view of the city skyline.

No complaints here!

Hawthorne House is an amazing place to live! It was a little over my budget but I'm glad I worked it out because I would live here forever if I could! Anytime I have a maintenance issue - clogged toilet/drain, lights, etc. - the issue is resolved within 24 hours without fail. The doormen are extremely friendly and I always feel very safe coming home because of them! I highly recommend living here!

Not worth bang for the buck

Nice place on the exterior but the internal stuff is broken down. Some neighbors are obnoxious. Very cold and windy in winters. Staff is friendly but incompetent. Close to bus lines but not trains which means if you are traveling during rush hour traffic, it will be a very long, slow commute.

Amazing view, no laundry

I love my place - floor to ceiling windows with a view of the lake and the skyline, tons of closet space, and a huge bedroom. The maintenance crew takes great care of me, and so did the onsite valet attendants when I owned a car. But no laundry! :(

Hawthorne House is Great

For luxury living in the city it doesn't get much better than Hawthorne house with views of Lake Michigan and spacious living. Would recommend it to anyone looking for luxury lifestyle in Chicago

Lakeview Reviews

This apartment is in the heart of lakeview, being between Wrigleyville and Boystown. There's no shortage of bars, restaurants, and things to do. It's also close enough to the lake to take a bike ride down to the beach or run along lake shore drive.
It is a very safe and friendly neighborhood. We have block parties in the summer on our block. There are lots of restaurants in our neighborhood and a really big Whole Foods around the corner. There are less chain restaurants and more neighborhoody smaller restaurants and cafe that I love - including the neighborhood favorite Scooter's Frozen Custard down the road.
There are a bunch of different places to choose from if you want to eat out. It is located right by Wrigley Field, so you can actually hear concerts/baseball games if the wind blows in the right direction! A lot of young people live in this neighborhood. Located right by Boys Town. A bunch of different grocery stores nearby- Jewel even has a parking garage if you want to drive! Very close to Public Transit - Red/Brown/Purple line & Buses. Noise level is moderate. Walgreens is a 2 minute walk away if you need milk/eggs or medication immediately. Wish there were more coffee shops, but there are only a few.
Lakeview is a strange neighborhood seeing slow change due to continued popularity and ongoing gentrification. What used to be a low-middle income area full of LGBT people and ethnic minorities is becoming more white bread and upper middle class.

It has numerous sub-neighborhoods, including the super bro-y Wrigleyville and the still queer Boystown. It has a mix of lower income co-op housing and slowly dying out SRO housing with luxury condos and high rises.

The area is generally safe, though the occasional mugging does occur and bar fights happen closer to the stadium on the regular.

The neighborhood is often loud and bustling with people, with hospitals on both ends (St. Jo's and Advocate to the south and Thorek to the north) so a lot of ambient ambulance and fire truck noise is normal, plus sounds from people going to and from the many bars and restaurants lining Broadway, Belmont, Halsted, and Clark. Festivals draw neighbors into the streets and block traffic frequently during the summer, including Pride, Market Days, Lakeview Arts Fest, and others.
More and more people are moving to Lakeview to the point where it's too saturated for my liking. With everyone trying to move to the neighborhood rent prices have increased dramatically. We decided to stay where we are because all the other buildings we looked at in the area had WAY higher rent and they were worse units
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.
I absolutely LOVE living in Lakeview! This neighborhood has a great neighborhoody feel with so many great bars and restaurants. It is also so close to the lake, and very accessible to getting downtown! I wouldn't want to live anywhere else int he city!
I love living in Lakeview, it has a great community feel and lots of neighborhood events. The neighborhood also includes Wrigleyville (if that's your sort of thing) and Boystown, so tons of places to go out no matter what you're into.
