Good so far

6 management rating Reviewed by on

Great experience thus far. My only issue is the front desk staff who are often inattentive or absent for long periods of time. If a guest is coming over they are unable to get in sometimes. The facilities are great, we often use the grills on the roof during the summer.

Nice Apartment and Ammenities

8 management rating Reviewed by on

Overall the apartment is very nice and updated. While the rent is not cheap, I think that for the area (west loop) it is a very good deal. We also have laundry in unit which is a big plus.

The apartment staff and maintenance people are very nice and helpful. They are quick and efficient when fixing problems and complaints.

Good

8 management rating Reviewed by on

It's a good building and great area to live in. My apartment is very cozy and comfortable. It is a dog friendly building, which can get somewhat noisy at times. There is not a pool nor a gym, but FFC is connected to the building. I would say the location is the best part about the building. It is very close to pretty much everything you would need. Maintenance and management are very good and address issues properly. Lastly, security is great and are very good about getting packages to you.

Love my apartment!

9 management rating Reviewed by on

I love my apartment and its amenities. The apartment is large and clean, never any bugs. The building is well maintained. They recently renovated the lobby so its modern with a fireplace. Free coffee in the morning. We also have a nice, well-stocked store in the lobby called "The Commissary." We also have a dog park. It's great. I just renewed my lease.

I like living in this building because it is a small community and is in a great location. My building is located in west loop, right on the border of fulton market. This neighborhood has a lot of great restaurants and isn't too crowded. I like that this building has utilities included and washer/dryer units.

Gold Coast View/Prices

3 management rating Reviewed by on

5+ years' - Love my view, roof top, neighborhood, ect... Wish I had a more updated apartment. The building has "updated" lobby and roof but was a hassle for residents. Wish after work parties started later ( I work till 5:30 so never got to partake). My building was dog friendly which was nice, LOVE animals. Only downside is building felt more money hungry than taking care of residents who are loyal.

Great Location but with Constant Construction

8 management rating Reviewed by on

1360 is a great location for living in Chicago. The roof top of the building is incredible, close to the Lake Shore trail, in-building convenient store, public transit is easily accessible. The negatives of the property are the construction (scheduled to last till spring of 2018), gym is in very poor condition, and dated finishes in unit.

Would Not Recommend

1 management rating Reviewed by on

The management is worst and fail to provide security inside the neighborhood. The wall paint color in the hallway is not at all welcoming.
They charge more for the very small place.
The office staff gets rude most of the time. The packages from the mail room are not delivered most of the time. They keep the package and don't even send an email about the package received.

I Love Living Here

8 management rating Reviewed by on

Unit is not as newly renovated compared to others but our rent is $400 below what others in our same layout pay. Management is easy to work with, addresses issues promptly and well. Parking is easy but pricey. Overall I love living here and will happily renew my lease if the price is right.

Good Value in River North

7 management rating Reviewed by on

My Fiance and I have lived here for 1 1/2 years and it is a good value for the location we're living in. We're both close to work and family. The building and management is great. The gym is definitely on the smaller end but the pool and outdoor area are great. Our rent includes Internet service.

Decent place to live

8 management rating Reviewed by on

Great location but construction is bad and loud. It is not the newest place but the building is kept in decent shape. The gym in the building is very old but at least it is something. Door staff is awesome! There's a package receiving service and dry cleaning in the building.

Happy Renter!

8 management rating Reviewed by on

The pet-friendly community is great, especially the dog park. Free coffee every morning and monthly happy hour events. Maintenance responsive and air/heat included in utilities. I was paying the same price for a one-bedroom in Wrigleyville, which had more space but NO amenities and no utilities included. So I'm actually saving money with a studio in Goldcoast. Kitchen is separate so it's definitely doable. Also, the neighborhood here is obviously much better for serious professionals vs. sports fanatics.

Affordable in the Gold Coast

6 management rating Reviewed by on

1350/60 N Lake Shore is an affordable apartment building in the very quiet neighborhood of the Gold Coast, it has amazing lake views, responsive management and good maintenance. For the past few years though, the building has been under exterior repair which has made it a little uncomfortable to live in the apartments as there is seemingly endless construction noise.

Overall Great Apartment

10 management rating Reviewed by on

Great unit in a very bustling neighborhood, close to all the West Loop amenities you want. Thick walls, won't hear your neighbors except in the hallways sometimes. The windows aren't as thick so those on the lower floors will hear the trains passing by, though they stop at night.
