Beware of this building. Old and weary, paper thin walls, and what they won't tell you is that it is low-income housing. So you pay full market rates to live next to Section 8 residents. Known for drug dealing as well.… Full Review ▶

I'm sorry to whoever lives in apartment 706 now I should have written this review earlier. I got a job offer in Chicago and moved from New York and researched all the apartments in the area. This seemed like a good… Full Review ▶

I'm moving out Chicago, but I would encourage anyone to check out these apartments if they're moving into the area. They are very affordable for the area, as long as you don't need a fancy granite/stainless steel kitchen or marble bathroom(though… Full Review ▶

There are advantages and disadvantages to living in this building, which I am renting in since 2008. First of all, the term "luxury" in a building's property sign usually is misleading. The amenities in the building are few and unimpressive by… Full Review ▶

My husband and I first moved to Chicago 4 years ago and we didn't know any better, so we rented a place in Rogers Park, which ended up being way too far up north for us - especially since we did… Full Review ▶

There is little to recommend about this property. The amenities are non-existent, beginning with a poorly equipped, yet surprisingly cramped exercise room, and a ground floor COIN OPERATED laundry room with unreliable washers/dryers. The outdoor pool is open for less than… Full Review ▶

It was nice at first. The size of the apartment is really nice (corner 1 bdrm), and it was very clean upon move-in. The pool is nice during the summer, however they for some reason don't bother to fully clean it… Full Review ▶

I was sad to read some of the reviews Elm Street Plaza has been receiving lately. I wish to respond to a few comments people have made. First, some have complained about the elevators taking forever. Keep in mind that Elm… Full Review ▶

Chicago had a quick cold snap that lasted about a week in the beginning of October this year. Unfortunately, that was enough to trigger the mgt and maintenance staff to switch the building over to heat for the season. Too bad… Full Review ▶

Parking is unsafe. I have rented an apartment here and just found out it has fifty apartments rented under Section 8. Sadly to say, I feel as if I am surrounded by gang members. Smoking in the stairways, hanging out constantly… Full Review ▶

This place is terrible, which is strange since the company that runs it has such a good reputation. The maintenance staff and door personnel are both friendly and do their jobs well, but the office staff is lazy and don't seem… Full Review ▶

Despite the AMAZING location, you will be miserable here for 2 reasons; 1) The elevators will cost you 20 minutes a day, you will be late to work, you will be frustrated, and you WILL be stuck in the elevators! They… Full Review ▶

I found out recently that Elm Street Plaza is renting to displaced Cabrini Green residents. It would be nice if the building management could have mentioned this prior to me moving in but they didn't. One of the doormen told me… Full Review ▶

I have nothing to compain about this property except that "Standard Parking" which manages its garage is totally unreliable.

They managed to cash my check, but never credited it to my account, and disable my keycard because of non-payment, TWICE!

Very well run by Habitat, nice amenities: pool, renovated laundry, workout room, lobby. Staff all helpful and friendly. Great views from the Northeast corner 2BRBA. Units could use some upgrades, not as nice finishes as newer places (was built early 80's).… Full Review ▶
