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).
