Park Michigan Apartments
MollyAC • Resident • 2009 - 2010 Not Recommended
I lived in this building for one year. I loved the location, being close to the red/green/orange lines, the Metra electric line, museum campus, and being so close to the loop. There's a Jewel Osco behind the building, and its close to a Target, Whole Foods, movie theater, and lots of shopping options. I didn't enjoy the variety of smells. Apartments are okay. They have dishwashers and a built-in microwave, which is nice. The walls seemed fairly insulated. I only heard my neighbors a couple of times, and that was only when they were REALLY loud. The gym equipment was usually broken down, but the pool was nice. It was only closed for service once when I lived there. The worst part was the smells. My neighbors frequently cooked grilled onions and garlic, and those smells came right into the kitchen along with cigarette smells. There's a trash chute by the elevators, but for some reason other residents couldn't be bothered to open the chute, so they left their trash sitting on the floor and the odor filled the entire hall. The apartment is heated and cooled by a single unit (just like at a motel), so you have to pay for A/C and heat. I had to keep my unit off a lot to save money, which meant I hundred under a heavy blanket during winter evenings. Overall, the apartment was okay, but not great, and certainly not worth the rent they're charging now.
