Don't move here

I recently moved to 450 W Melrose in June and initially had a great experience. The unit is fully renovated with great views. Our leasing agent as well as Iovan & Marta have all been very nice and helpful with our move-in process. That being… See More >

    Do NOT rent these apartments!!! I never leave reviews, but I have to for this place as I dont want anyone to get scammed. First of all, I moved into a dirty apartment that no one dared to clean. Stains everywhere, I cannot even explain… See More >

      The apartment is NOT worth the price. I've lived in other places in this area that are better value for money. The building's old, ton of repairs need to be done, units are not cleaned before tenant moves in and roaches will keep appearing.… See More >

        Things get fixed, fast. And they're always doing little improvements on the building like painting hallways, and carpeting the stairs in the common areas. The building engineer has been quick to respond to all of my minor maintenance requests thus far (such as getting an… See More >

          I do have is a clean studio with great closet space, new carpet, fresh paint, and a shower that works. Well, it stopped working once, but I called our building manager and he fixed it himself. That day. Literally within two hours of me randomly… See More >

              I had pretty low expectations when it came to looking for a new apartment in Lakeview. I work nearby so I really wanted to live in the area and not have to commute everyday. Planned Property Management showed me this unit and I couldn't believe… See More >

                I like how spacious my studio apartment is. It's rare to find a studio with so much countertop space in the kitchen and enough closet space for storage. These little touches allow me to keep my space just so. The kitchen includes a little bar… See More >

                        The arrangement of Planned Property has been nothing short of wonderful: expediting elevated repair situations, courteous demeanors, and prompt response times.

                            Planned Properly Management makes a continuous effort to improve the overall appearance of the building as well as regularly making upgrades.
