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.

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.
