Resident 2016 - 2017

For the cost of my apartment, the quality was not worth it, I joined during a leasing special, but once the year was up the rent went up $300 per month. To me, they're saying they don't want us there anymore since the apartment itself… See More >

    I have only lived here a short time, but I regret moving here. Believe all the bad reviews and more. For a company that demands a lot during the application process, they give you nothing in return. If you do move here, be sure to… See More >

        Lower floors have crippling hot water issues which cannot be rectified despite repeated visits by the plumbers. If your neighbors open a tap, you get dripping force which is a big problem at peak hours. Unfortunately, this issue cannot be verified when you are checking… See More >

          I completely agree with the post below. Hot water is a constant issue here. I've placed multiple requests to fix the hot water but it's always ignored. The hot water pressure, at best, is low and often times it comes out a barely… See More >

            I moved in to Buena Shores in August 2015. My roommate and I got a decent deal on a 2 br 1 ba unit at $1315/month. I don't hate it, but it isn't great. For one, the building has roaches. We have been catching them… See More >

                For several years I've been a loyal customer to Group Fox and have enjoyed their managements style until my rent for a two bedroom high rise was raised beyond the deserving price margin. Their apartments are no where near luxurious but they certainly use to… See More >

                  A long term (22 years) tenant is finally had enough. They have consistently tried to raise the rent 100.00 each year and have done absolutely NOTHING to deserve it. The only thing we will miss is the Maintenance guy who is great and the management… See More >

                    As everyone else has said, the staff here is terrible. My bathtub was clogged for two months and even though I complained LITERALLY everyday, they didn't do a single thing. But they were immediately at my door to charge me a $50 late fee when… See More >

                        There is no management at this building. Nothing gets done. They lost my rent check twice and ignored a complaint about ants in the apartment. The building is like a dorm building. It's dirty and it smells bad. I've ridden the elevators with peoples trash,… See More >

                          Buena is not an ideal place to live. The management is not efficient (i.e. couldn't find my rent check twice, did nothing about the ant problem in our apartment.) The building isn't very clean, I rode the elevator with vomit, food, and beer cans on… See More >

                              Basically I agree with what other tenants are saying. Ok for the price, but not so great compared to other apartments. I lived in an apartment in Lincoln Park for only $100 more a month which was a million times nicer. The staff at Buena… See More >
