DO NOT RENT HERE

This is an awful building, DO NOT MOVE HERE. I moved into this building because it was pet friendly and was available asap at the time. Last week I made a service request cause I have biscuit beetle in my apartment, the pest control banged… See More >

      East Park Towers is a mediocre place with little to offer beyond the bare bones of hyde park living. Maintenance is responsive but left to their own devices, often minimally useful. When the tenant is present and keeping staff to task they perform great work.… See More >

        Terrible. I regret renting this apartment. We are overpaying for tenement conditions. Our concerns are not taken seriously. The lobby gets more care than the actual apartments. I wish we could move out tomorrow. Every week we have a problem.

          You concerns are important. Can you direct message me at gguttman@macapartments.com so I can look into them. I cannot see who you are from this review. Otherwise, I'd look into the issue and report back to you.

          2/4/2013

          I have lived at East Park Tower for almost 6 months and am very pleased. I have always received friendly, quick service and the building maintenance is top of the line. I may be a little pricier than other places in the area, but it's… See More >

            Everyone always told me to beware of MAC. I urge you to heed their warnings. I live here currently and I hate it. I live in a small studio and pay way too much money. The men doing the repairs and remodeling have… See More >

              I lived here for nearly a year. The studio unit was really small. Think bedroom with a kitchen. It did have a dishwasher and built-in microwave. They were doing a lot of remolding at the time, so I bet the grounds and lobby area is… See More >

                7/22/2008

                Rent is cheap. Heat and water included. The apartment building is a historic 100-year old hotel that was converted into apartments. Because of those thick plaster walls, you'll rarely if ever hear your neighbors. It's pretty, but it's not been well maintained over the years.… See More >

                  A very underrated building- with very nice sized one bedrooms and studios. The rent is cheaper then most (a 700 square foot apartment is only $750.00) - heat and water included in the rent. Laundry and dry cleaners in the building- and Ive never had… See More >
