Plaza on Dewitt- Amazing Location with Incredible Views

Location cannot be beat - right near Lake Shore Drive and easy walk to the beach in either direction. Roofdeck view is unbelievable with an amazing north facing view of the coast, southeast is Navy pier and the Ohio street beach, and the west city view is phenomenal as well. The building has a basement gym and laundry facilities. There is a LAZ owned parking garage associated with the building (very expensive).

Could be great, but management terrible

The condo building could be great — it's safe, there's a non-scary gym ($75/year) and laundry area in the basement, and the doormen and maintenance staff are awesome. And there's a cool pool and roof deck on the top floor.

BUT, there are a lot of cons to this place.
1. You have to be grandfathered in to rent the unit. So any new owners cannot rent their unit, ever.
2. The management staff is pretty terrible. There's nepotism going on + they basically dislike any residents under the age of 45. There's reverse ageism going on.
3. 80% of the residents are retired and older. Although that means it's quiet, fortunately. But if you're looking to make friends with your neighbors, it might be tough.
4. The low rise elevators break down at least once a month, and they take more than a week to fix. One time, an elevator was broken for at least 3 weeks. It makes it impossible to get down to the first floor or basement in a timely manner.
5. The management will try to fine you for pretty much anything. With the help of nosy tenants who will report you. I was even questioned in the gym if I even lived in the complex. Sorry I don't go to the gym enough for you to recognize me.
6. If you hate living in a touristy area, you probably don't want to live here.

Plaza on Dewitt

This is a great and clean building located right in the heart of Streeterville. Very convenient if you're affiliated with Northwestern. Not too much in the way of shops etc in the IMMEDIATE vicinity but you don't have to go too far. Parking is quite pricey.

thoughts on 260 e chestnut

This is a great building to live in if you're affiliated with the Northwestern Medical Campus which is just a couple of blocks away - the commute is ridiculously convenient. Socially, if you're a young professional/student there are some but not TOO many other young folks in this building. Many units are kept by older people from the 'burbs who come by on the weekends etc. I haven't had too many bad interactions with management and the "board" but I've heard that they can be difficult to deal with at times (i.e. you can't do any construction during certain times of the year etc). The building staff are very nice and the facilities are great (although I do think its odd that you have to pay an extra $75/year for the gym, its worth it).

Streeterville Reviews

I like the Streeterville neighborhood so far, there is a good amount of grocery stores and restaurants. My only complaint is that there is limited El train lines in the area.
Best neighborhood in Chicago! Clean, safe, close proximity to a lot of dining and entertainment, easy to get around. The only issue is the traffic and crowds on summer weekends - but that's because everyone wants to be here.
Pros: very safe, great transportation options in the Red line and all the busses you can think of, close to all of the entertainment and social life options of River North without the price

Cons: 35-50 minute commute via the 2 to Hyde Park (but it's a great bus! Mostly U of C commuters and very reliable.)
The Streeterville area was still pretty sleepy when I moved here three years ago. Since then, there has been an incredible amount of development. New luxury apartments and condos are going up, several new restaurants, a brand new target and Whole Foods. Its become a great place for professionals who enjoy living downtown, but without the club crowds in River North.
If you are ever bored in Streeterville, you have no one to blame but yourself. within a 10 minute walk, you have access to world class dining, several theaters, and the best shopping in the midwest. Also, being in the heart of downtown public transportaion is plentiful. The downside is you have to pay for all these things. Everything is more expensive in Streeterville. We find it worth driving 20-30 minutes out to do grocery shopping.
I've lived in Streeterville in 3 different buildings since 2014. I love how you still get a lot of restaurants and stores but don't have to be in River North.
There are a few buses that are near by that help get residents down to the loop. Also it's pretty easy to walk around and the cross walks are pedestrian friendly. I'm always able to get around by foot and buses/trains. Streeterville is a very safe neighborhood and I've never felt unsafe walking around at night. The streets are well lit.
Noise is not usually too big of an issue in this neighborhood; it's pretty quiet at night.
There are multiple grocery stores nearby for multiple choices. Also there are a bunch of great places to eat so one will not get bored with options.
Close to the Loop, fairly safe area. Lots of noise between daytime construction and the nearby hospital. Multiple grocery stores within walking distance, including the fancy Whole Foods. Restaurants tend more toward chain than local. Movie theatres and entertainment options within blocks, Ohio St Beach and Navy Pier nearby. Post office nearby, albeit a very slow post office. New Target also! A number of buses run from Navy Pier to the Loop, west on Grand and north to Chicago, and other buses can be picked up from Michigan for additional north/south options. Overall a great place to live, but not for someone looking for "unique character" in a neighborhood.
