The one complaint I have about this apartment complex is that the water is often shut off due to maintenance issues, making it inconvenient if you are at home the majority of the day.
Don't believe it when they tell you it's quiet
The walls are THIN here. I actually hear my neighbors' conversations through the walls. I would have given a higher score if it weren't for the thin walls and the fact that the fitness center has been under renovation since before we moved in.
Great apartment next to whole foods - very convenient for the winter
5 mins from the CTA/ Metra
. 20 seconds from Whole foods
. On chicago avenue and in the middle of downtown evanston
. Gated with a 24x7 doorman
. Has laundry/ washer in the apartment
. Modern style apartment with a massive dishwasher and fridge
. LOTS and LOTS of closet space
. Massive french style windows - so a lot of natural sunlight, a must for the winter!
Great view and location but seems overpriced
I love the location of Park Evanston. I can walk to Trader Joe's and it's right above a Whole Foods. It's also in the middle of downtown Evanston. The windows in Park Evanston are great and I have a beautiful view of the lake and campus. But this is an expensive place to live given that the kitchen is dated and I don't have hardwood floors. The management is hard to work with and the pool is closed most of the time.
Great location, non-responsive management. Decent bang for buck.
Good location, non-responsive management
Location right next to Whole Foods is great. Management is not responsive and apartment often has temperature control issues.
Good location, nice views, but it's a sauna inside
The apartment has an excellent location, has great views if you are above the 12th floor.
However, the way they charge you for heating and cooling is sketchy. In your apartment, you can only have ac or heating, and heating is the only option from october to may. You cannot completely turn off the heat, so most of the time it's really, really hot inside. If this wasn't enough, they charge you for heating based on a pro rated form, so you might end up paying up to 200$ of heating, even if you are not using it and it's disgustigly hot inside. Oh and management is also rude and not willing to cooperate on anything regarding the temperature.
Great place to live; close to campus and downtown, and conveniently located next to Whole Foods. Biggest issue is that the thermostats aren't always responsive so it can get very hot in the unit.
Apartment is great minus a few complaints. The management isn't the best (aka non-responsive and not willing to help) and you cannot control the heat/AC. Otherwise, I've enjoyed my living situation.
Decent Building but Horrible Management
The Park Evanston is a fine building, although a bit old. The rooms are fine, the rent is somewhat cheaper than Optima Horizons or E2 and the location is good. But I have found the management to be really horrible -- they charge ridiculous prices for heating with almost nothing to back it up. It wasn't until a group of us called them out for it that they lowered their prices. I wouldn't necessarily recommend avoiding the building, but certainly be on top of your stuff when dealing with them.
Great apartment, so-so management
Great apartment -- great location, good layout, awesome views. One of the better apartment gyms in Evanston.
Management is fairly unresponsive. Apartment is very hot.
Nothing to complain about it
. Management is super friendly and helpful
The Gallery is in/near what some call the "gayborhood" so everyone around is very friendly! It's not too close to all those typical college bars on McKinney ave, so you don't have to listen to people shouting and blaring music Thursday - Saturday nights. There are a few nice art galleries within walking/biking distance as well as plenty of restaurants.
Good place to live
This is a newer building in the area, and as such, everything is really updated and nice looking. The pool is very nice and it gets lots of sun all day (unlike some apartments when the pool is always shadowed by the building). The gym is nice. There are a lot of Asian people here so if you speak an Asian language, you'll fit in nicely. :)
Pretty average place
Riviera is not bad. The gym sucks, the pool is small, but personally, I've lived in a building with a great pool/gym, but I rarely used them, so I'm fine not having to pay for them here. There are plenty of great gyms nearby if you need one. The "social" aspect of the building itself isn't exceptional, but there are a lot of nearby apartments so I have friends in plenty of nearby buildings, so it's nice living close to all of them (plus I can use their pools haha). It's all about location as they say.
