Less Expensive Downtown Living
Pros- spacious apartments; parking included; free visitor parking; perfect location; nice view of Shoal Creek; updated finishes in most units; responsive management team
Cons- lots of construction around building but that may change; small gym; lacks fancy amenities of surrounding buildings; no 24-hour concierge;
Great option in a trendy neighborhood
Really nice renovated apartment
it's been good so far, management is very receptive. they have newly renovated apartments with so much space and light. not a great gym and the printer always breaks.
Great Location, but...
Living at 404 is about figuring out your priorities. If you want to be one block away from the West 6th bars, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Core Power Yoga, the new library and much more, then give this place a chance. The bus to campus is a block away, parking is included, and all the units have recently been renovated. Downsides are that the pool is small (actually under renovation at the moment), the gym is smaller, and the overall quality of the building is lacking if you compare it to surrounding apartments. Still, you'll be paying a few hundred dollars less per month for a 1br than you would at Monarch, Seven, Gables Tower, etc.
Love living here!!
The heat doesn't work in the winter and the office just tells you to use emergency heat for the entire season. The appliances are abused and work poorly, the manager is reluctant to fix ANYTHING, there is marijuana smell in the elevators and hallways CONSTANTALY. It even comes into your apartment through the vents. People's dogs poop in the hallways and they don't clean it up, and there is always trash everywhere. The gates don't work consistently, nor do the elevators.
Overall good place to live
The staff is kind, pet-friendly.
No problems receiving packages.
Two Thums Up
Great design and amenities
Very lax and accommodating management with amazing location and affordable rent. Very underrated.
Great location, several Kellogg students, good amenities
In my opinion, the reason a Kellogg student lives at the Park Evanston is because they want to pay a bit less than some of the other buildings and have a fairly decent location right next to the Whole Foods. The issue with that plan (which was what I had thought I was doing) is that the building management is horrendous. The building is old and out of date, the people who work there aren't helpful, and the cost jumps up aggressively after your first year so that if you plan to live there for 2 years you will end up paying a similar amount to the other buildings. I highly recommend staying away.
1717 is a nice place run by poor management.
Great modern bulding, amenities include pool, grills, gym, party rooms, and mail room.
Face the Lake
If you can, get an apartment that faces the lake because I think it's brighter and more sunlight. Also apartments above level 6 you get a view, instead of facing the Wholefoods carpark.
- generally pretty quick with maintenance
- apartments are big and reasonably priced for what you get (vs E2 for example)
- management sucks a bit - they turn the heating on really high as soon as it hits October even if it's warm. And the heating is pro-rata to every apartment so you have to pay for it even if everyone is complaining it's too hot
- they charge you for everything like if you get locked out it's $50 (even though the doorman just needs to come up to let you in they have spare keys on site)
Great apt. Very far from the university!
Overall my experience in this building has been very positive the only negative side is that it is very far from the university and I don't think it's worth been that far!!
