This building doesn't do background or credit checks so expect residents to be individuals in need of that situation. Police and Fire dept visits are frequent. Neglected dogs, drug deals, firearm reports and management that does little to solve the problem.See More >

They updated the hallways, lobby, and replaced the washer and dryers. Yet it still terrible to stay here. Roaches are a continuous pain, even if you are the cleanest person around. There is no ventilation in the apartments, which births mold. They let sells peopleSee More >

I would not recommend this apartment building to anyone unless they are in a serious financial hardship or cannot find another apartment anywhere else in Chicago. The building is disgusting and the hallways smell terrible. Tenants smoke in their apartments leading to individual apartments smellingSee More >

This apartment is the most disgusting place ever. They break the law on a regular basis, ignore your privacy, and are overall scumbags. The building is dark and smells so bad, and the amount of bugs and mold are intolerable. I cannot say enough badSee More >

My worst apartment so far. Lots of roaches, although did not experience bed bugs. Maintenance was a nightmare and the building engineer, Gabriella, is never around which becomes a huge pain. I got locked in my apartment overnight because my doorknob fell off, maintenance toldSee More >

I should have read the reviews earlier, because I just rented for 6 month lease and it has been two weeks in and my place is infested with bed bugs. I bought a 400 dollar futon and probably I have to throw it out. DontSee More >

Don't move here!!! I know it seems like an inexpensive building in a nice neighborhood, but throwing away most of your belongings and being covered in red bumps, waking up to insects in your bed is not worth it. There are roaches and black moldSee More >

This building is not the best building to live in, but that alone is tolerable. what is not tolerable is the poor management. It is a horror story, and I strongly recommend no one living here. For example, this morning on my way to workSee More >

Out of some weird nostalgia, I am here on the web searching the Belmont/Broadway area that I grew up in during the 80's. I googled my old address of 505 W. Belmont and found this site. Based on the other posts, sounds like the sameSee More >

The Neightborhood: It's all location, location, location, and this is what you're paying for after all, as one of the other residents said in a previous post......and the location is amazing. The Building: Beautiful facade, attractive lobby....albeit with disappointingly fake marble. The hallway could be re-carpetedSee More >

I don't live there anymore. It's horrible. The hallway is quite dirty. The whole building has a lot of dust. I was stuck in their old elevator so fire fighters had to rescue me out. I know... It's crazy... The place can be betterSee More >

After conducting an extensive apartment search in the neighborhood, I feel obligated to apprise potential renters of the nightmare that this building truly is. The apartments look comparable to other units in the area; many are larger and much nicer than the studios I've recentlySee More >

Yep. I'm moving out of this place. I found dog poo littered in various places in this building. Sometimes, I've seen blood in the elevator (when they work, which is rare). Don't move here.See More >

The apartments themselves look nice enough, but there aren't enough redeeming qualities for me to recommend them. The heat rarely turns on and when it does the radiators are loud enough to wake the dead. The building is full of noisy tenants who find nothingSee More >
