Recent BJB Properties reviews
Great space. Highly recommended. Can't say enough good things about it. You can't go wrong with living there. There's a bedroom and a bathroom. Both work really well. Better than expected even. I've told all my friends about it. If I had more friends I would tell them about it!
Great Place to Live
Management is very responsive to all my tenant needs, great location. I have a dishwasher and walk in closet, which is an extremely rare find in this neighborhood! It's an older building but everything is in good condition. Plus a security guard at night helps keep the property safe!
Satisfied long time resident
I've been at 1837 Patterson for a few years and overall am pleased with the building and management. Can't beat the location, and street parking is relatively easy. Maintenance is very responsive and the building engineer does a great job. Cable and internet is included, but very basic and was a little disappointed with the recent cable package downgrade. Laundry is coin operated, which is probably the biggest downside. Residents are mostly single working professionals and haven't had any issues with noise. Pet friendly building and close to the brown line and buses.
New Attentive Management
My experience thus far at 25 E Delaware has been great. Management is great about responding to any and every issue. The location is excellent and it's a great place to live! Ask Katie if you ever have a problem, she'll get it taken care of right away!
Great place when first moving to Chicago
I moved to Chicago and didn't really know anything about the city or where to live. I ended up living in a small studio in Lakeview and I really loved it. Rent was inexpensive, but the room was extremely small. When you live alone you don't need much though. You did have to pay for laundry downstairs on the first floor, and the elevator was extremely old and slow. It's not bad for a first apartment, but I wanted to move after a year.
Descent Place to live for a year
Overall BJB Properties was a good experience. There were 2 main things that annoyed me about my studio apartment. 1 - There was very little sunlight. Many of the units face the east but the hospital blocks all of the sun, making the small studio apartments like a cave. 2 - There was always a smell of smoke and weed in the hallway. The apartment doesn't allow smoking anywhere (per the lease) but they apparently never enforced it.
There is a front desk person from 5-1am so overall it feels pretty safe.
Nice Living Situation
You can't go wrong with this location and the spacious units. Been here for a while and plan on staying as long as rent holds steady. Kitchen is spacious and all appliances are nice and in good working condition. Outside of building and hallways are well maintained.
Quiet and cozy
I love my apartment. It is expensive but updated and I live in a high enough unit that I am overlooking other buildings' roofs so that's a huge plus. No problems with maintenance or management. They have had workers working on the exterior of the building for the last two years so that can be an annoyance because it gets loud in the mornings for some people.
Really Beautiful Studio Apartment
This is the perfect studio apartment for me - it's in my price range (although maybe a little more than I wanted to spend) and in the best area of town and has an amazing layout so it doesn't exactly feel like a studio. I fell in love with it at first sight.
Looks nice but has roaches
Our apartment is in a very safe neighborhood. We have a very spacious 1 bedroom with hardwood laminate floors, updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. BUT. There are roaches. Even if you're the cleanest person. Also the elevators are slow.
I enjoy living at 211 E. Delaware Place. The location is great and close to a lot of amazing restaurants and shopping. It is easy to walk to the loop for work and shopping and restaurants on the weekend. The sundeck and laundry room are also nice amenities at my apartment building.
Excellent Management and Close to Public Transit
My wife and I got really lucky with our apartment. It is everything we could have asked for. The apartment is spacious and conveniently located to public transit. We are also close to multiple grocery stores, a movie theater, and book store. Lastly, we are super close to the lake.
Excellent Place to Call Home
I absolutely love our apartment complex. It is so clean and spacious. Plus we get a fabulous view of the lake. Close to public transit, a movie theater, and the lake. Management is kind, welcoming and happy to help with any questions or concerns that you might have.
This property is good. You pay for location, which is the gold coast and being two blocks from the beach. I enjoyed both. I lived in the heart of the Gold Coast, which provided both entertainment but lots of noise. My studio apartment was cozy and comfortable for one person, you would be crammed with two people.
Nice place, but can get noisey
Fanestra is very nice and cozy with spacious rooms and high ceilings. However its lacking closets. Its not enough storage space in the apartments . They have laundry machines and dryers in each unit. I would like to give an advice who plan moving about high noise levels outside the buildings. There is fire station nearby which makes extremely loud noise 24/7, also traffic noise is quit disturbing . Another negative part is not very caring management which doesn't really care about certain resident's requests . Positive side is the location . Close to the metro , restaurants and movie theater. I wouldn't extend my contract there for the next year though .
