Great location. Mediocre value
I love being at the streeter. It’s got everything I need really close to me. There is a CTA bus stop right across the street that takes me straight to school. But the only drawback is that rent can’t be kind of expensive. Other than that, this place is in the heart of all the action.
Perfect (But Pricey)
This building is truly fantastic. Fantastic amenities like I've seen no where else, and a roof deck that's truly impressive. There's a full gym and business center, and an in house dry cleaner. The doormen are amazing people who truly care about the residents, and any issues with the apartment (even including dead light bulbs) are dealt with promptly by the janitorial staff. This building is beautiful.
I'm a student at Loyola, and this is a super convenient location for that. I have been here for 3 years so far, and intend to finish my last year here as well. My girlfriend and I are super happy with the inside of the apartment as well. Its got central heating, and cooling. Views could be better but overall its a nice spot.
Studio Resident- Great Location
Beautiful residence. Very clean with helpful staff and maintenance. The building has everything you need and more. They are also working on updating the hallways and entryways to be more of a luxurious residence. The exposed brick walls are beautiful and help to maintain a comfortable temperature all day long.
Great Space, Bad Management
I've had a pretty good experience living here. The front desk and maintenance staff are wonderful! I've had bad experiences with the management - they aren't good at communicating if there is a problem.
The unit itself is nice. It's small and not as "luxurious" as the ads made it sound, but it's quiet and the view is great.
Convenient, Relatively Affordable, Has Character
If you're looking to live close to work (assuming you work in loop), close to Michigan ave, and close to some of Chicago's best restaurants, this apartment complex is unrivaled.
It also offers some of the nicest and most unique amenities: pool, sauna, game room, movie room, fitness lounge, business center.
Great views, great staff, great apartment
Well, you certainly pay a lot to live here, so it makes sense that the experience is good. Staff is super friendly and always helpful. And the apartments are well sized with AMAZING views. Only downside now is construction that's currently getting in the way. Some days I'll wait 15 minutes for an elevator...
Amazing place to live
Staff is very friendly and super responsive. I love all the little resident appreciation, such as sending me a birthday card. I have not had a single problem living here. The common areas are clean and the stafff goes aboveboard and beyond. The door staff is also fantastic. This building is very well managed. I love the complimentary coffee machine downstairs. I love living here.
Quiet + New
Apartments are brand new, spacious, and quiet. Super close to Kroger.
Good for med students
Right on bus line downtown. Far from undergrad housing (quiet). Good value, very new. All units have a garage. friendly and helpful onsite management team. Property is kept very clean. Has a pool and fire pit and club house for hosting events. Pets allowed! Great for a couple or family. they also have a service that will pick up trash and recycling right every night from your front step, very convenient.
Lots of space, and short walk to the trail.
Alden Park is a great value in an area that has been neglected for years. I chose to live there because it's close to the Wissahickon trail, the Chestnut Hill East regional rail line, and is easy to get to by car.
Historic and Pretty, Poor Management
+ Beautiful building
+ Maintenance team is good
+ Friendly neighbors
- Impossible to pick up packages
- Unprofessional management staff - lacks professional finesse - their aim is off in terms of "improvements" to building.
- Often shuts off water during the day
- Often only 1 elevator works in 13 story building
- Often has to check apartments when you are not home during the day
- Annual rent increases
New Management = Unhappy Tenant
Parking is terrible. Unsafe, never a guard on duty in the building as they advertise. Fire alarm goes off in the middle of the night. Building is beautiful, location is great, too bad it's not being run properly. Also, they've stopped putting out actual dog-poop bags. Instead, they put out full-size trash bags in the dispensers.
It's nice, but the buildings are historic and the windows are old and leak heavily. This is terrible all year and especially in the winter. Aside from the windows, I do like most of the other amenities and the location. It is between two train stations and close enough to Main St. for an easy Uber ride.
I lived at Alden Park for 2 years. It was my first apartment in Philadelphia and I felt safe because of the security and the fact that it is a gated community. However, if you leave the complex it is not the safest area but it is extremely convenient to get to Center City. I also loved the amenities especially the swimming pool and parking. The price is a lot for the quality and size of the apartments.
