Great location and spot

6 management rating Reviewed by on

Experience has been very pleasant. Staff are really helpful. Close to red line. Close to parks. Perfect walk from hospital. In the same building as FFC so no need to go outside in the winter.

Expensive but very responsive

9 management rating Reviewed by on

The location of this building is prime. It is right next to Grant Park, the Roosevelt stop (red, green, orange lines) with a center for bus transit, and is super close to the Metra train headed south (ME line). Management is super responsive and the place is really pet friendly. Every maintenance request was resolved within 24 hours and they are really communicative. Only major issue for me is the price which is why I will be leaving next year. Laundry facility is also really nice (but expensive - I pay ~$40/month total in laundry and they also make you pay $5 to get a little debit card that works with their machines which is obnoxious). The gym on site is small but solid with dumbbells and cardio machines and some machines and also an open space with mats. Packages are safe and easy to get. Very close grocery stores and gyms. All in all, a really great place to be. They do charge $50/lockout though and the doors lock automatically when you leave so do be careful of that!

South Loop condo

Many rentals through individual unit owners. Professionally managed with 24/7 doorman and maintenance services. Parking garage available, 30-45 minute commute to Global Hub. Good location for public transit around Chicago. Great value.

Law Student in South Loop

9 management rating Reviewed by on

I'm quite happy in this building! My unit has beautiful lake views and plenty of space even in the smallest one bedroom that they offer. The amenities are great (pool, gym, etc.) and the surroundings are wonderful too - park, lake, restaurants, public transport. Of course, I could always dream of a lower rent price, but there's really nothing I dislike about living here.

Excellent Apartment in South Loop

10 management rating Reviewed by on

Eleven Thirty is an amazing building optimally located at the very top of South Loop (15 min walk to MPP) and 5 min walk to the Metra. 2 grocery stores and L-train station located within walking distance. Reasonably priced with in-unit washer and dryer and great views!

Great location in a quieter part of South Loop. Extremely family friendly and convenient with nearby Trader Joe's and the Museum Campus train stop for the commute to school.

Decent Apartment Building with good, not great, amenities

7 management rating Reviewed by on

Like the apt, def love my view and the building has some okay amenities, but it might be. A tad expensive for what it is. Especially with nicer building bag a nearby.
Easy access to Trader Joe’s and Jewel Osco.

1130 is Great

10 management rating Reviewed by on

I really enjoy living at 1130 S Michigan. The South Loop is great if you don't mind living away from everyone else up in the Loop. There are lots of good restaurants and bars and it's quieter and more neighborhood-like than the Loop. Management is great, the building allows dogs, has a solid gym that gets the job done, dry cleaner downstairs, and Trader Joes is just out the back door. The price is good (I think) and I've never had issues with anything the whole time I've been there. I drive to campus and parking is $230/month, which is to be expected here. It only takes me 10 mins to get to campus by car.

41 East Eight Review

It’s not the most glamorous apartment, but it’s fine, especially for the cost. No huge issues besides some issues from maintenance neglect from the landlord.

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.

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.

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.
