AVOID MAC

The apartment building itself is not so bad, but the management company is horrible. They are consistently unreliable and unresponsive. When they do finally get around to doing repairs, the repairmen are rude and the work is shotty at best. They can never seem to fix even the simplest thing correctly the first time.

Love the Shoreland!

I've lived at the Shoreland for all three years of law school, and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. The apartments, recently renovated, are beautiful -- nice fixtures and appliances, very clean, and very comfortable. The location can't be beat; the 171 bus stops right outside and takes me directly to the law school. MAC Property Management has its well-documented issues, but the staff here at the Shoreland have always been friendly and helpful.

Great for 1Ls

The Shoreland is a great choice for incoming law students. It is near the 171 Bus, and is student-friendly. The rent can run a bit high, though, so students on a tight budget might wish to consider another building.

Good place to live, may not be worth the price

The building is really nice, there's always someone at the front desk, elevators are always in order, the staff is really cordial. Sometimes the management and staff don't know certain information. Also, I live in a 2-bedroom with a roommate. She took the master bedroom and so pays slightly more of the rent, but even so my room is tiny. And for what I'm paying I feel like the spaces should be bigger. The free internet is also somewhat slow. It's reliable but when my roommate and I are both streaming video it can be slower than you'd want. All in all I like my apartment because it's convenient, newly renovated, and feels safe. But it may not be worth what I'm spending compared to what I see some of my classmates paying.

Pretty Good

I share an apartment with a roommate at Shoreland. It's a pretty good apartment and the best part is that we have the washer & the dryer in our apartment.

One of the best places in Hyde Park

Shoreland Apartments is probably one of the nicest apartment buildings in Hyde Park. The building that is being built on top of the new Whole Foods also looks swanky/convenient too, but Shoreland is right on the lakefront and has amazing views in addition to being a newly-renovated building. Of course, Shoreland isn't exactly cheap, but I think (based on personal experience) it is a lot better than some of Mac Properties' other buildings (e.g., Regents and Del Prado). Mac Properties can be pretty awful to deal with, but I haven't had anywhere near as many issues at Shoreland as I had at their other properties.

Pros:
Great views; free access to exercise equipment and study areas; free (relatively fast) Internet; capped heating bills; free water/sewage; close to 53rd/55th street restaurants and grocery stores; free outside parking (although spaces are sometimes hard to find); 24/7 concierge that will receive and hold packages for you; in-unit washer/dyer; 171 bus stops right in front of the building

Cons:
Mac Properties kind of sucks (e.g., Shoreland used to have an actual gym but they tore it out and put in office space for themselves, kind of like how they downsized the gym at Regents a couple of years ago); bicycle room packed and has 3 heavy doors that you have to swipe your key fab to open to get in/out; Shoreland charges $25 monthly per pet; closet space is limited in the apartments and the $25 monthly storage units are small

Expensive but lots of amenities

Pros: Newly renovated, gas stove, central air, clean, no bugs, in-unit washer/dryer, indoor parking available (although now it is full), convenient commute to UChicago on 171 bus.

Cons: Expensive for the area, no consistent problems but if you have a problem it can be hard to work with MAC, 55th street does not have as many stores/restaurants as 53rd street

I love living at the Shoreland

The new appliances, spacious living spaces, washer & dryer in unit, and relative quiet all make the Shoreland a great place to live. Living at the Shoreland makes up for living in Hyde Park, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Positive experience, would do it again

Positive experience mainly because of how low-maintenance it is. Spacious, clean rooms. Definitely not as social as Regents because there's not as many law students, but it's still close enough to everything that you're not too isolated.

Decent

Shoreland is very convenient. The 171 picks up right in front of the dorm and drops off right in front of the law school so walking in the cold has not been an issue. Management is impossible, and the apartment is way over-priced. But, having an in-unit washer/dryer is pretty neat.
