After 2 years of living here, my lease cannot end soon enough. I love my apt, my view and the customer service I had when I moved in. I chose Onterie(now Axis) because the staff was nice and professional. Whenever I… Full Review ▶
My husband and I moved to Onterie Center two years ago. We live on the loft side. Pro The loft is spacious Nice location Cons The first yr we had maintenance come to our loft with problems close to 6-7 times.… Full Review ▶
Warning: This is NOT where you want to spend your monthly wage. This is by far the worst place I have lived in my entire life. Rent is extraordinarily expensive relative to the other apartments in the vicinity. Furthermore, the apartment… Full Review ▶
To all future tenants: Do yourself a favor and don't move into this building. Go across the street to McClurg or anywhere else. #1 - The leasing office has a super rude agent working there. She thinks she's super hot and… Full Review ▶
I moved into Onterie in June, and have found it to be a very nice place. The agent who showed me the apartment gave me enough options (studio, convertible, 1-bedroom) and took me to the actual units (unlike several other places… Full Review ▶
I am not sure what the bad reviews are all about. The leasing office staff were warm and welcoming when I moved in on a sublease.Summer was awsome with the amazing view of the lake, the Hancock,the beach next door and… Full Review ▶
I don't understand how the people who work in this building get to write positive reviews here about the Onterie building? My lease is just few days to end and I didn't renew it 'cause the really bad service this building… Full Review ▶
I have lived in a 1 bed at Onterie Center for 4 years and felt like I had to post after reading some of these reviews. The views of the city and lake are outstanding and some of the best in… Full Review ▶
Walls are paper thin and you can hear everything your neighbors are doing or saying through the walls like you're in the same room (the leasing agent had the audacity to say they never hear of problems with noise). The hallways… Full Review ▶
I am still living in this building, but I cannot wait for my lease to end. I am looking to move as soon as this happen 'cause it's the worst place I have been living. I checked the reviews when I… Full Review ▶
The views from the upper apartments at Onterie are amazing. However, that is where the shine ends at this complex. The units are stuck in the 70s. The Heat/AC units are loud, wallet-draining sieves. The fitness center is well appointed, but… Full Review ▶
Location cannot be beat - 4 blocks from Mag Mile, 2 blocks from Northwestern Hospital, 2 minutes walking to get to the lakefront trail, 5 minutes walking to get to Navy Pier. Higher floors have INCREDIBLE views. We have a completely… Full Review ▶
1.Management For a downtown high rise the building really has no standards. The building is about the median price in streeterville even with the concessions they give you (ex. 1-2 months free) They just jack up the price, don't be fooled.… Full Review ▶
I have lived here for 14 years and must say that I am extremely happy with my apartment and the building/staff. I have had many chances to move, but just couldn't bear to leave such a lovely, friendly, and well located… Full Review ▶
I've lived at the Onterie for 4 years and have watched the building undergo renovations. I'm very grateful and excited to have a brand new lobby as well as a new laundry room. The building has helpful staff that have always… Full Review ▶
We've lived here for almost 2 years, and I can't wait to move. This isn't the worst apartment I've ever lived in, but only because I lived in a complex that had drug dealers below us. The appliances are horrible -… Full Review ▶
My husband and I moved to the Onterie a month ago, and so far everything is great. The management was nice enough to let us bring in our stuff even before the due move-in date. And they respond within the hour… Full Review ▶
I posted the following review a few months ago. I thought I'd offer a brief follow up. Has anything changed since then? Absolutely not. Case in point....the fitness center. In February they closed it for renovations and told us it would… Full Review ▶
If you are thinking of renting here, you should...but wait just one year. They are about to start a major renovation to the entire building. Lobbies, units, laundry room, gym, etc. It will probably be a major inconvenience for those of… Full Review ▶
pros: * spectacular view, esp. from lake side -- beautiful Rothko horizons, sunrises, clouds * supermarket immed. across street -- and a cheaper, larger one a few blocks away * mix of all different kinds of people! -- unlike when I… Full Review ▶
After reading the various reviews of Onterie Center, I arrived at the conclusion, that these people want something for nothing! I looked at alot of rentals in the Streeterville area, and nothing compares to the views, the price, or the location!!!… Full Review ▶
I just moved into the Onterie Center, and I am regretting it already. My neighbors smoke like chimneys, and I am forced to smell their smoke all day. Sometimes I wake up at 6:30 in the morning to smoke and go… Full Review ▶
Can you imagine waking up to the sound of voices so loud, it feels like they're in the same room as you? Or how about being able to smell the wafting odors of your neighbor smoking a cigarette, or knowing everytime… Full Review ▶
I have been here for 1 yr and 3 months, and I am moving out! Yay! This place is a BAD deal -- it is a little cheaper than all the surrounding options in Streeterville, but it is also quite a… Full Review ▶
Decent apartment, but many other options in streeterville available. Make sure you check before committing! Full Review ▶
I only live here because I'm a student and too busy to move out. The walls are paper-thin, the door staff is sub-par especially compared to the buildings in the area. Furthermore, the carpeting, kitchens, and countertops are from the 80s.… Full Review ▶
Great view, but that's really the only nice thing I have to say about living in this building. Here's the rest of the picture: 1980s cabinets and countertops, small and frequently-broken elevators, floors and ceilings that aren't level, shifts in the… Full Review ▶
I have been living at Onterie for almost a year now and I love it. When I came here, I was not from the area. The management, Katie, helped me out by informing me of the area and fun stuff to… Full Review ▶
I love the location!! The property is a few blocks from michigan avenue and right next to navy pier. I walk across the street to treasure island grocery store and the dry cleaners is right in the building. There is access… Full Review ▶
Management blatantly lied about when construction would end (they told us December of '05 and it is still going on) before we moved in.
The construction lasts all day and then you get to listen to all of your neighbors at night… Full Review ▶
The Onterie was great when we moved in...then the construction started. The cosntruction was unacceptable. The labor strike (which management never told us about) stretched progress way beyond the deadlines. The dust and noise was unbearable. The noise was often so… Full Review ▶
I've live here for almost 5 months now, but the thickness of my walls is just not acceptable, I hear my one particular neighbor going at it... moaning and banging against the wall while I'm trying to get rest, the appliances… Full Review ▶
Although the rent is comprable to other buildings in the area the small savings don't compensate for the extremely noisy refacing project that is supposed to continue for another year. The leasing staff lied about the duration and volume of the… Full Review ▶
I've lived here for about 2 months now, and I really don't know what everyone is complaining about. Yes, there are other nicer buildings in the area, but as far as I know, most of them are significantly more expensive. I… Full Review ▶
I simply can't recommend Onterie.
Staff: While the maintenance and security staff are generally nice and helpful, management is usually unfriendly and unresponsive if not outright rude.
Pricing: Management has pursued an aggressive rent raising plan even though many of the amenities (i.e.… Full Review ▶
I have lived at Onterie for almost a year now and I absolutey love it. Not only is it in a great location, but the staff is extrememly professional and helpful to my needs. I highly recommened this building to anyone… Full Review ▶
I agree to the previous comment. Its the management staff that just destroys the proposition.
Someone please change the management office staff Full Review ▶
Unprofessional staff, horrible attitude just take the lustre away from what is an ideal location and a good building.
The management is unresponsive and for some reason with "attitude". For instance, Katie (a person in the office) thinks that she is… Full Review ▶
yes, the doormen are very friendly and helpful,
the maintenance is prompt.
However, it's just too noisy.
Not only are the walls so thing,
at the moment they are renovating the building,
which I heard will continue for another year,
and the drilling and hammering is terrible.
This… Full Review ▶
I don't know what's up with all these negative comments! As someone who has actually lived in the majority of apartments in chicago, this is by far the best! The doormen and maintenance men are SO helpful and tend to any… Full Review ▶
Nice looking bldg if you enjoy living with a bunch of students in a dorm room. Great views from some of the floors, but the walls are literally so thin you can hear your neighbors sneeze!! The gym is a joke… Full Review ▶
