Review

I love living at 640, it's close to everything you need and to the water/bike path. I like the quiet neighborhood feel, while still being near the city and main roads. No complaints!

Great Apartment!

I moved to Chicago from Evanston and found a great apartment at 640 Sheridan. Everything in my apartment is redone and I have hardwood floors, granite counters, and new cabinets. Maintenance is great and responds very quickly. In addition, some of the maintenance people live in the building. Laundry is in the building which is very nice. It's great here :)

Cool place

Apartment was pretty cool to live in. We only had a few problems when we initially lived there, but the landlord was quick to make any fixes. I would live here again if I had the chance. The units are pretty updated and the apartment was fairly quiet.

Overall, a pretty good first apartment!

I found my apartment through Groupfox leasing agent Ann Cort, who had helped friends of mine. She couldn't be nicer - showed me everything she had in and around my budget before I finally applied for the one I wanted. It's a very spacious studio, hardwood floors, recently renovated bathroom, and a lobby area currently being revamped. It's also super-close to multiple buses and the Red Line, as well as walkable to Wrigleyville and Boystown bars. In the year I've lived here, management is usually quick to respond regarding maintenance issues, questions I have, and any building notices. I've definitely had some maintenance problems here and there - an A/C issue that required a new unit, a bathroom leak, power outages, etc. Nothing too uncommon, and all fixed fairly quickly. I did learn fast that maintenance had a habit of leaving my door unlocked when they came to do a repair and I wasn't home, so I now make sure someone is home during all repairs. Additionally, things tend to happen without notice - our elevator was down for over a week last fall and four days this spring to order new parts, and we weren't informed until it was already down. We've also had two multiple-day power outages because of poor communication between the management and ComEd, though the building manager did bring pizza, soda, and flashlights to the building for us as a kind gesture. I like my apartment, I have minimal issue with management, and for my first solo apartment, I'm very happy. Would recommend!

Would not rent from Group Fox

I have lived here since December and have had many problems with the apartment and the management. First, I have had many problems with the kitchen sink clogging and even flooding my kitchen one weekend while I was out of town .The management continued to tell me it was someone putting stuff down the drain but now they admitted it was their issue and fixed it. They would not reimburse me for the ruined items. The management company is terrible and would not recommend renting from them. Our property managers were non responsive and wouldn't help alleviate any problems until I reached out to the CEO.

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.
