Columbus Plaza Apartments
Resident • 2016 Not Recommended
Columbus Plaza is an old, dingy building with very expensive apartments and no utility is included in the rent. There is no pool or spa and just a tiny gym. There is a fire department right next to the building and IT IS LOUD!!! They have a package delivery room that will send your package back if you don't pick it within a few days. So you pay for return shipping and also for getting it shipped back. You can find a better apartment for the same price at the Marquee, 73 E lake, Shoreham, Aqua etc with better amenities and move-in deals. The day I moved into the building their elevator crashed with a free fall from the floor 48 - floor 16. Scared the hell out of me but the leasing office said they have the best elevators. You will run into people in the elevator who have clearly smoked weed because they are smelling of it and talking to you for no reason. Hallways and apartments will smell of cigarettes or weed and the management will do nothing about it. They will raise your rent by almost 20% every year. Once you are in the lease they will stop helping you with any requests. I moved out after a few months because even after multiple requests they failed to act on any requests. They charge you two months of rent if you want to move out. I had the worst experience with these people in all of Chicago. Please read all the low rated reviews before you make a decision to move here because they all bring up real issues with this building and its management.
