Resident 2011 - 2012

4/17/2013

I lived on the second floor of 420 W. Surf from August 2011-July 2012. Overall, I was pleased with my experience there. You really can't ask for a better location in Chicago. It is very close to the lake and the lakefront trail. It is… See More >

    I have a number of complaints with BJB. The building itself is not THAT terrible, but there are plenty of problems. First of all and most importantly, I live on the 8th floor and we have a SERIOUS centipede infestation. My roommate and I see… See More >

      I would also give this place 0 stars if I could. I love there for about a year and it was horrible. Like everyone else has said the place has cockroaches. Luckily for me I have a cat that will kill any bug in sight.… See More >

        DO NOT RENT FROM BJB LINCOLN PARK. - 420 W. SURF - DINO IS THE WORST. THE MANAGEMENT IS TERRIBLE & THE BUILDINGS ARE DISGUSTING. I have lived in my place for two years and it has taken me over 6-months to get a kitchen sink that… See More >

          GREAT location, you can't ask for better. Right by major bus lines and express bus that head straight downtown (takes about 15-30 minutes), you have the option of about 6 buses to get you everywhere, and a 15 minute walk to the El. Also, just… See More >

            i have lived in this building for over two years and overall, it has been a great experience. it is really nice to have the leasing company right across the street to handle maintenance requests, package pick-up, rent questions, and to give you a… See More >

              This place has been the worst living experience of my life. There is constant remodeling and banging happening all around my apt. The guy who manages it is a class A jerk who could't care what happends with his clients. It's terrible,… See More >

                I lived there for 10 months right after they "rehabbed" the apartments. I got a good deal because it was November and they had a lot of open apartments they had just "rehabbed" and wanted to get people in them. So, I was… See More >

                  I've had a great experience with this building. I love it. The rooms are nice and the appliances in each of the kitchens are new. You get a good amount of space for your money. I find the price I pay… See More >

                    The building is just old and was "rehabbed", but don't be fooled. It's still old, the walls are still thin, the parking is still crappy and the materials they used are junk.<br><br>Keep looking and don't let your apartment finder push you here.… See More >

                      I would not ever recommend this building or this company to anyone. First of all, since they day we have moved in we have had a centipede problem. When we asked them to come take care of the problem they put some sort of gel… See More >

                        I must admit, when I moved in over 3 years ago, I was concerned to say the least. I had a bad experience (the renovation of my apt was not completed) on the day I moved in, but overall, I have really come to love… See More >

                          I have lived in several apartments in the city and this is by far the worst. The management are all a bunch of jerks. It's dirty. If something breaks it probably won't be fixed for 2 weeks. The maintenence man hates… See More >
