Great Building in Printers Row

I love my building. It's quiet, well managed, and excellently maintained. The main elevators are nice and work well, and there is a freight elevator in the back for larger items, pets, and moving. It's conveniently located next to the laundry room too!

My apartment is a great value for the neighborhood. I'm also paying about as much as I would have been paying in Regents if I stayed there

The apartment itself is spacious. It has huge windows that open almost all the way. Each unit has its own ac/heat and water heater, so you can control the temperature yourself (which is really nice). Units will differ in appearance because they are individually owned condos.

The gym is small, but well maintained and with a good amount of equipment. It's never very crowded, so it's not hard to workout.

The dry cleaner holds packages for you, which is very nice.

Printers Row is a great place to live, and really convenient to the law school. The 2 bus has a stop at harrison and state and balbo and state, so it's a 3-4 walk from my unit door to bus stop.

Awesome!!

Great area with friendly neighbors. Rent is affordable for the location. Wish parking was included. We have to pay $200 for a spot one block away that isn't covered. No one is above us, which is nice. Dog friendly is a huge plus! Steps away from the red line

Convenient Printers Row Condos

Units are large and neighbors are quiet. Not ideal for college students; this is a quiet building where most people own their units and are respectful of neighbors. Parking is located below the building for an additional fee. Windows are large and produce lots of sunlight if your unit is on the south side. Each unit has its own storage unit on the same floor.

Good price, mediocre management, wonderful location

I rent and although the price has been steadily rising (same apartment over the last 5 years from 1700 to now 2000) it is still a bargain for this area. It's surrounded by walking distance restaurants, only problem is less-than-attentive management.

Quiet and comfortable; no outdoor space

Condo association is good and friendly. Neighbors are quiet and friendly. None of the condos have any outdoor space but there are two parks nearby where residents grill out and a dog park. No in-unit washer/dryers but a large laundry facility on first floor. Parking is valet only and very expensive. I would recommend renting a monthly space in one of the surrounding lots, rather than the one below the building. Overall, it is an excellent location, not too busy most of the time and within walking distance to Target, Trader Joes, Icon Theatre, the Loop, Metra, etc. You cannot beat the location.

Living in Printer's Row

Great old building with TONS of room. Windows are big and bulky and kind of hard to open, but are large and filled with light! Everyone on the floor is very nice and most of them own. Allowing pets is great, big and small. Rent is reasonable for the area, Carpet needs changed ASAP

Great location, unit quality depends on the landlord

Since this is a condo building, the individual unit quality and value will depend on the unit owner. The location is great - near Grant Park, gyms, stores and some bars. A lot is happening in the South Loop and the location will only improve, but rents will surely rise with that. The building management is alright, but there are fees for everything (including moving out, which is ridiculous). There is no doorman, but sometimes third party security hired to wander the building at night.

South Loop Reviews

The south loop is a very convenient location for those working in the loop. I walk to work every day. It has plenty of stores, restaurants and bars to offer and is very conveniently located to transit options
I love South Loop. It's close enough to Hyde Park that you don't feel like you have a terrible commute to get to the law school, and it's in the city enough that you feel like you're in Chicago.
The streets are nice and wide. It's busy, but not too busy. There are grocery stores and a couple of decent food options - it's a perfect compromise for a law student that still wants to be in Chicago proper.
Printer's Row is near the Loop and train stations and is therefore easily accessible. It's also near Grant Park and the Lake which is great during the summer. There are some decent restaurants and a few bars, but if you're young you'll probably be heading up to River North and further north for a night out. Overall, the neighborhood feels very friendly but has a great location, and new construction in the South Loop will surely make Printer's Row even better.
I feel very safe in this neighborhood. It's close to the L and many bus lines run in this area. We are close to many of the festivals and other great entertainment happening throughout Chicago. Also some great restaurants nearby! Grocery stores are close as well. Any necessity you need is within walking distance to Park Michigan!
Being near the Roosevelt stop, I think the South Loop is great. It's up and coming, with bars and restaurants, the L right there, and right next to the museums/lakefront.

I would be more hesitant to live very south of Roosevelt, like 18th or so. Things become much quieter and it's a farther walk to things.
Although not near campus, UChicago is very easily accessible via the #2 bus (about a 20 minute commute). The area is very safe, relatively quiet, and close to down-town amenities. There are not many restaurants in walking distance, but River North restaurants are within 10 minutes via public transit.
Getting to school with a car is great, because there is never traffic on Lake Shore Drive south of soldier field. Jewel, Trader Joes, banks, a movie theater, and some good restaurants/bars are around. However, I live near the Roosevelt L station though, which is the most active part of South Loop.
Quiet neighborhood with close access to various transport options. Close to Downtown Loop area without any of the traffic/ noise. Close to the lake and Museum Campus, which offers great views and entertainment. A lot of families in the area, and I feel very safe and comfortable living here.
