Satisfied

7 management rating Reviewed by on

Very good apartment, very spacious, good finishes, great GIM and pool. Cons: water runs cold after long showers and air conditioning makes living room warm, but not enough for the bedroom.

Solid option for Kellogg students

8 management rating Reviewed by on

Moved into one of the renovated units at Park Evanston for my second year at Kellogg. Overall, I've been pleased with the apartment itself and the location of the building. The building has been undergoing construction but with that finishing up in the public areas, the overall living experience should be elevated quite a bit. I find the rent a bit expensive for what it is (10-15% less would be fair) but that's Evanston for you. With new buildings coming online, the rental market should soften in the coming years so hopefully management responds accordingly.

Overall like living in Park Evanston

7 management rating Reviewed by on

There are some apartments that have beautiful views facing the lake! The building is undergoing construction now but the newly renovated units are beautiful! In some of the two bedrooms though, there’s a master bedroom and a significantly smaller room so be prepared to split rent accordingly. Love living next to Whole Foods, minutes to all the other major places people live and a less than 20 minute walk to campus. Management is also receptive to needs.

Great place to live!

6 management rating Reviewed by on

I think 1717 is a great place to live - new building, nice amenities (pool, patio, grills, gym, study lounge, bike storage, secure package drop-off), quiet rooms (good sound blocking), and dog-friendly so even if you don't own a dog, you get your fill of puppy therapy. The new leasing office staff are much more responsive than they used to be, and life here is fairly seamless. The maintenance team is quick to help fix any issues!

Do Not Recommend

1 management rating Reviewed by on

Not recommended. The price is much higher than comparable places in Evanston. The management office is not helpful at all.

Park Evanston - great location, v. bad management

1 management rating Reviewed by on

Pro:
- The higher floors have great views if you're facing the lake, generally pretty spacious and lots of closet space
- Maintenance is pretty responsive
- They just spent 3-4 mo renovating so I'm guessing amenities and new apartments will be quite nice

Con:
- Management sucks - very unreasonable at times. They will increase rent by a lot YOY even though we all had to suffer through really bad noise and inconvenience during renovation

We’ve had some annoying package issues with the main office, but have otherwise enjoyed our stay here.

Has its Pros and Cons

5 management rating Reviewed by on

Overall satisfied by experience but leasing office is not the fastest. You have to hassle them to get your lease signed, get keys and get set up. After that haven't had many issues with them. Quality of the apartment is visually appealing but the cabinetry and HVAC system are a little cheap. This means that HVAC is incredibly loud and fails to keep apartment at a steady temperature (turns on and off very frequently). Also need to be okay with a longer walk to campus. It's not that far from downtown though. Very pet friendly building with nice area in the back to take your pup out. Apartments are a lot larger than E2 and are better priced.

Great location but remodeling brings value down

1 management rating Reviewed by on

It's a greatly located building close to everything in Evanston. Not as nice as E2 or Centrum but definitely better than most other options. They are remodeling the building and that makes it very uncomfortable to live in - considering the rent !

Solid option close to campus

5 management rating Reviewed by on

Park Evanston is incredibly convenient to the Kellogg campus. It's a 15-20 minute walk, depending on your walking speed. It also has all of the baseline amenities you'd need: a functional gym, a common room, a way to connect with a delivery dry cleaning/laundry service, a package room, doorperson, basement bike storage, and a small pool (better in the summer when most of us aren't on campus, though). Current downsides: they've been doing a lot of construction, and it's a mess, it's loud, we've lost access to many common spaces, and this followed a rent increase last spring. Additionally, the newly renovated apartments are going for a steeper price tag than the older units went for. The heat is also only semi-controllable, and is particularly painful during transition seasons. Many residents have to open windows to keep their apartments from being stifling in winter. Older units have everything you need, but nothing (stove, counters, carpet, etc.) is particularly good. Good closet space. Walls are thick, but doors are thin. ~7-10 min walk from Metra/L.

Great Apartment, Bad Management

Great apartment and ammenities. Management has been horrible - however, they recently replaced the assistant manager so hopefully things turn around.

Great Modern New Apartment but Mediocre Management

5 management rating Reviewed by on

Apartments are new and in great condition. Building comes with awesome amenities like a pool, free coffee, gym, business center, rooftop, etc. Management is slow to respond. Hard to get ahold of someone when you need something. Took a very long time to negotiate our contract. Maintenance issues around the building are slow to be responded to.

Great Apartment

8 management rating Reviewed by on

It is a beautiful apartment with floor to ceiling. If you are willing to walk an extra 5 min, it is a great place with reasonable rent.

Good Location, Raised Rents

4 management rating Reviewed by on

The Park Evanston is a well located building close to downtown Evanston and the Kellogg campus. It is (or at least, was) relatively cheap compared to other Evanston high rises. However, the new management came in and significantly raised rents in 2018. They are undertaking construction, but as far as I know most units are not yet refurbished, and the value proposition of living here has been seriously diminished with the rent increases
