Seems pricey, but it's worth it; it's good enough

The staff is excellent. Apartments are excellent and updated.

I did quite a bit of searching before settling on Shoreland, and it's true that you're going to be paying ~$400 more per month than you would at most other places in Hyde Park. Plain and simple, what you're paying for is central air conditioning, the in-unit washer and dryer, and door staff. If you are fine with a radiator, window A/C, stairs, and shared laundry room, then save the money and go elsewhere. If you can afford the conveniences, it's worth it.

Beautiful, well-maintained units & excellent everyday staff

The units in Shoreland are beautiful, clean, renovated, and well-maintained by the building's maintenance team. The building is incredibly convenient for law students. The 171 bus stops in front of the building and at the law school, so even on the coldest winter days you don't have to be outside much. Trader Joe's is about a 10-15 minute walk away, and is also accessible on the 171 bus route. The everyday staff is excellent. The front desk staff are very kind, helpful, and trustworthy with packages. The maintenance team is outstanding - very responsive to maintenance requests. While this certainly isn't the cheapest option in Hyde Park, it's worth it for the quality of the building and amenities.
The management company, MAC, can be challenging to communicate with when it comes to rent renewal. But if you ask to speak to the right people, they will accommodate you. You only need to do this once a year, and it's worth it for the great units.

Great building with amenities in East Hyde Park

Shoreland has a great community feel and is pet friendly (a benefit for both residents with and without dogs). The building has a gym, common areas and a 24-hr front desk attendant. The units are spacious, newly renovated, and complete with in-unit laundry.

In terms of location, Shoreland's close proximity to Lake Shore Drive and Promontory Point are a plus, not to mention the convenience of having the 171 bus stop directly in front of the building. All around, it's a great building -- although more on the expensive side.

Great apartment

Great access to school, comfortable apartment. It's nice to have a 24 hour doorman and all utilities included. Definitely feel very safe. Management is also super responsive, and all my problems are fixed by the day after I submit a report. Only complaint is that it's a bit far from grocery stores.

Great for law students

Only issue is it is occasionally difficult to find a parking spot, if you are looking for one.

Great Location & Amenities

Building is very nice, 171 stops right in front making it very convenient. Amenities like the club room and gym are clean and easy to use. Front desk staff fantastic.

Wonderful apartments

I really like living in the Shoreland. I think the amenities (particularly in-unit laundry) are great, and I like the social component of there being so many law students in the building. The front desk staff are warm and personable and maintenance has been incredibly prompt whenever I needed them.

Shoreland

The building staff at Shoreland is really great, for the most part. They're very responsive to maintenance requests and keep the building very clean and in good shape. They do take an excessively long time to process your packages before letting you pick them up.

Feels like home

Compared to some of the other apartment buildings I would say Shoreland is the best value and experience. The front desk staff make you feel at home and always welcome. Maintenance requests are usually completed within 48 hours. The lighting and general apartment experience is better than Regents. Quite a few law students live in Shoreland so you get a nice community feel and you don't have to leave much. Also the bus stop is right outside and they usually give you $70 of Uber credits per month for rides home from the law school (after 5:30 and before 8:30 on weeknights).

Shoreland is great!

It definitely is a bit on the pricey/fancy side, but I think it’s worth it for the location (bus stop in front, next to the lakefront running trail, somewhat close to Trader Joe’s and close to open produce.) 24 hour front desk and package pickup is great. Management has been really nice so far.

Hyde Park Reviews

107 reviews
The convenience of getting to campus cannot be beat. I feel relatively safe as a young woman here. I have never been robbed thus far. Thankfully there are lots of police officers. I get my groceries at hyde park produce and whole foods, which are both pretty convenient. The 172 is great. I just wish it ran later at night for late classes.
Great neighborhood. 53rd street is very safe. Security at every corner and University buses run up and down it all day. Also very close to many food/grocery options.

You may a premium for the amenities/convenience, but excellent location if you’re okay with bus commute or biking
It's not the first place I would have liked to live, but it's closest to the university. The biggest drawbacks are that there are no traditional grocery stores or affordable food options. It is nice to be close to the lake and promontory point.
Hyde Park is great to be in for 1L since you'll need to be at the law school *all the time.* It's charming, but really there's not a whole lot going on here. The lack of good restaurants is really brutal.
Close to campus, lots of restaurants. Not super close to grocery stores anymore, but not too bad. Lots of beautiful trees and old brownstones, not too crowded, housing tends to be very affordable.
Plenty of restaurants and shops. I've rarely felt unsafe, but of course, I've heard about other people's negative experiences with safety in the area.
I live five minutes from Whole Foods, Target, CVS, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, the 2 bus, the 172 bus, etc. Everything is within walking distance.
Kinda isolated from Chicago's social scene and cooler neighborhoods, but very convenient at least. Easy to focus in first year.
