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

96 reviews
Streeterville is amazing. I haven’t felt unsafe walking around and it’s a lot of Northwestern med school students so it’s a lot of young people!
I enjoy living in Streeterville since it's near many of Chicago attractions without feeling overwhelming like in the Loop. I am able to walk around safely at night and I like going jogging in Millennium Park. My biggest complaint would be the lack of greenery in the area and how the city can feel a little bit insulating at times. Public transportation is great. This area is pricey, which is why I decided to have a roommate.
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.
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.
Neighborhood is quite touristy especially with the underpass to the lake right by. Lots of tourists in the summer but that means you're also minutes walk away from the lake, navy pier and michigan ave. Decent amount of food in streeterville and very close to entertainment and food in river north. Walking distance to the loop and millenium park.
A bit of a hike to the train near MPP each morning

Don't think that Streeterville is multi-level -- makes it hard to call Ubers and to walk place -- also far from the subway lines Limited bars and restaurants although there is a Whole Foods, Target, Corepower Yoga, etc. nearby
It's tough in the summer with all of the tourists running in and out of Navy Pier. Lakeshore also floods right outside of the building, but it's always bustling and it feels safe. It's great to have the Target right down the street and several grocery stores in the neighborhood.
This building is located in the center of everything you could possibly need. Whole foods and Jewel within walking distance, easy to get to the lake front, and plenty of good restaurants and bars. The only down side is that it does not really have a "neighborhoody" feel.
