Review- great location but lacks quality amenities

The apartment has a great location, however the appliances such as the oven/stove and sink/faucet could be updated. It's really expensive to wash and dry a load of clothes there ($5 to be exact), which I also do not like. I would love if we had central air conditioning.

Great Apartment Location

Quaint apartment. Pest problems, no urgency with maintenance issues. Love the location--near lake, great shops, great restaurants, close to transit.

Antique-y feel, very wooded. Floors need repair. Large heaters in each room. Noisy in the halls at times, but not bothersome. Great closet space.

530 Diversey

Just moved in this past June and am loving it so far! The neighborhood is great and the apartment itself is so roomy for a 1 bed. Solid vintage apartment in the Lakeview/Lincoln Park area. Been with lakeview associates 4/5 years that I've been in Chicago and they have been great!

Lakeview Associates

I've been pretty disappointed in the maintenance department of this building. There was something wrong with the building's water pressure and we were with out water for a couple days. If you were to turn the sink on it would spit out dirty, lake water and it was disgusting. My building also has a gym area inside that may be from the 1970s. All the equipment is super old and creaky and not safe to lift or run on. I wish they would update that with new gym equipment.

About Lakeview

A massive and lively neighborhood, Lakeview offers great shopping, tasty dining options, celebrated pubs and bars, and a host of other entertainment options including live music, comedy shows, and exciting street festivals. Take an excursion to Krista K Boutique for tasteful brands and the latest fashions, but also be sure to stop by Unabridged Bookstore to pick up the latest novel. Take a break and stop at bopNgrill for Korean fusion cuisine or Crisp for some of Chicago's most highly rated fried chicken. Wash down your food with craft beers from Burn Brewing Company or a classy glass of Pinot at Pastoral. Rock out to indie music at Schubas or breathe in the jazz at Metro Chicago. Lakeview is a delightful neighborhood to live in, and it is a wonderful choice if you are moving to Chicago. <br>

Lakeview Reviews

95 reviews
close to the lake and lots of public transportation options make this a reasonable neighborhood to live in. Plenty of shopping options too, with a new Mariano's and Target coming into the area soon. The safety in the area is starting to get questionable - especially at night - but still far safer than anything on the south side.
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.
Tons of bars and restaurants in the area. Lots of young professionals and students, but a good number of families as well. Feels like a true neighborhood in the city of Chicago! Very safe and relatively affordable.
I love it! Very safe and tons to do. We are also very close to the lake and Lincoln Park. Street parking isn't the greatest, so plan for that. You can definitely find good valued apartments in the area.
Lots of things to do and great for families, young professionals, couples, singles, everyone... I lived closer to Lincoln Park and definitely like this area more; lakeview east is a lot of fun.
Being on the corner of Sheridan and Diversey gives easy access to nature through the lake, the zoo, and the park as well as a variety of grocery stores, boutiques, and restaurants.
Lakeview is a fairly safe and clean area. It has easy access to LSD and the lakeshore running paths. There aren't very many grocery stores so I use Peapod.
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.
