Resident 2020 - 2021

The internet is abysmally slow. I routinely have to use my phone's wifi hotspot during the day to get my work done. Do not move here if your income depends on good wifi during covid. Forget about streaming anything in high def.… See More >

    Some of the units in this old building were designed as apartments, and some were clearly not, since it is a former hotel. My apartment, for example, would be fine as an hotel room but is bad as a apartment. It is comically small for… See More >

      New Management and redesign make this building a gem! I moved here last year (2016) and it was ugly, not very kept but decent. Just google to see the old photos, it was very dark and spooky looking. But now, wow! It's totally modern and… See More >

        The aprtment lets in a lot of cold air in the winter. There was actual frost inside my apartment during a relatively mild winter. The lobby often smells like something has died in the walls for no apparent reason. The internet often goes out.… See More >

          18 East Elm is great!

          I have lived here for several months and I really can't complain. I'd rate the place overall with a B . It's an older building, but the price can't be beat for the location and the amenities. The grounds are kept cleaned and the… See More >

            The elevator in this building is ALWAYS out. Parking is a nightmare. You have to have a city of Chicago sticker which costs over $100 per year and in addition you need a residential parking permit which cost more $ and allows you… See More >

              Imagine this: a Friday night and you're bored and drunk in Chicago. You could spend hours riding up and down the elevators at Elm since they are ALWAYS F****** BROKEN!! It's pretty much pointless as it stops on floors 2,5,7, 9...etc etc...and this cheap---- management… See More >

                    This is the only building I have lived in since moving to Chicago, and it was perfect when I first moved in. At that time ALL utilities (including electric) were included. The location is great, and my apartment was really cute and a decent size.… See More >

                        I love the building, beautiful hardwood floors, dishwasher etc. I was sooo excited to move here. But from day 1, this place has disappointed me over and over. It took until the last minute for them to get the lease ready. When… See More >

                          I fell in love with the ELMS, wooden floors, vintage character of the place, general cosyness of the building, price-all included,dogs!Very nice maintenance team.

                            I lived here for one year and can honestly say, you get what you pay for. For the location (1 block from the beach, right next to great bars and resturaunts and in the Gold Coast, you can't beat that). I HIGHLY recommend… See More >

                              This is the best management company owned building I have lived in so far in this city. There is a downside to these larger companies...there can be a bit more red tape to get something done, and service is a bit less personal...but BJB… See More >

                                        This place is infested with cock roaches. In the winter you freeze because they barely give you any heat.
