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

Perfect location for Feinberg, almost feels like a small slice of a college town because so many of your neighbors will be students, residents, nurses, etc at the hospital. You do get sirens fairly often depending on where you live since the emergency room is very close. The neighborhood doesn't have too many restaurants/bars but it is walking distance to River North and Gold Coast and the rest of the city is easily accessed by public transport. Much safer than most neighborhoods in Chicago.
Love how close we are to the medical school, makes going to class really easy. A lot of students live in Streeterville so it is very easy to hangout with friends. There are also a few coffee shops in the neighborhood that are very fun to study at!
Very safe in comparison to the rest of Chicago. Great restaurant and bar scene with proximity to touristy spots, the lake, Mag Mile, and Red Line stations. However, apartments in Streeterville are often on the more expensive side.
Nice and clean and generally feel safe here. Walking distance from Lakeshore park and lake. Not as many restaurants and things to do here unlike some other neighborhoods.
Streeterville is nice. It gives you the city vibe. There are plenty of grocery stores nearby and it's right next to Northwestern graduate schools.
So much to do in Streeterville and it is close to the river and the beaches. Lots of dogs walking around. Very safe neighborhood as well.
walking distance from wholefood and other shops, gyms, bar and restaurants, dry cleaner, and 2 minute walk from hospital.
It's so convenient to be close to campus for classes. The trees and parks are also nice as compared to River North.
