Live at The Echo!
The Echo has been amazing! It's a great location - less than 10 minutes to campus and close to great restaurants, workout studios, and grocery stores. The building has an amazing maintenance team and great amenities, with a gym, pool, grills, dog park, and free parking. I would highly recommend!
Personal Austin Oasis
Living at Echo feels like my own personal oasis within this business school experience. Because we are consistently working together on class projects or interview prep, I realized that I wanted to live alone so that I could appropriately recharge, when needed. As soon as I walked into the model apartment at the Echo, I knew it was home. I loved the big windows that provided an abundance of natural sunlight. However, safety was my #1 priority when choosing an apartment. As a single girl living alone, having this sense of safety and comfortability was paramount. There is also no ground floor apartment option!
Regarding accessibility, Echo is right next to the Triangle. Residents can easily walk to plenty of restaurants, Orange Theory, nail salon, etc. There is also a bus stop right outside the apartment complex.
Living north of campus provides some trade-offs. You'll spend a bit more money on Ubers than the rest of your classmates to go out downtown or on Rainey St. as there isn't a nightlife scene in this neighborhood. However, my monthly rideshare budget doesn't come close to the price difference with a 1BR downtown apartment! Also, my drive to school in the morning in ~10 minutes. If I leave campus during rush hour, it'll take me ~20 minutes to get home (ask folks south of the river how long it takes them!)
My only negative review of this apartment is the elevators are so slow, and unfortunately, there are no stairs from the garage to the apartments. I'm more than content that this is my biggest complaint.
Highly recommend that you check out Echo if you want a quiet retreat that offers significant neighborhood benefits!
Pretty good living
My only real complaint would be that there aren't discreet package lockers - so sometimes packages get left in the office and then they aren't accessible until the office opens.
There is a little dogpark out back and it is nearby a lot of cool places!
convenient and well-furnished
Echo is very convenient for getting to/from campus (sandwiched between the 803 and 801 rapid transit buses), is pretty well-furnished with new and modern appliances and has otherwise spacious accomodations and common areas. I would avoid renting a unit facing Lamar (it is noisy) and try to move in at off-peak times (weekday, e.g.) due to the significant constraints on space along 46th. To avoid over-paying, get on their list for pricing specials based on your size and space needs.
Clean, New, Comfortable room. Apartment has pool, gym and business room for free. We can also take Starbucks coffee complimentary.
Overall, we have been happy living here the past 2 years. The apartments are new and clean. Management is friendly. They are pet-friendly. We enjoy being able to walk our dog in the neighborhoods nearby (within walking distance).
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.
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.
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.
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.
