    GREAT BUILDING AND LOCATION

    No doubt, one of the best buildings and locations around. Nice hardwood floors and mahogany cherry doors. Many other features are pretty nice. Only problem, if you will see it that way, is that if you are not a pet lover, there are many dogs here. Other then that, I'm happy to renew as its a well maintained property.

        FINE BUILDING

        I dont have too many complaints about this building. No building is perfect, but this one is run pretty well. Yes we all hear rumblings about Denise the building manager and I do agree that her hygine is not the best and she just seems filthy most times with messed up hair and dirty nails, but she runs this building in the best interest of tenants. She is not a rocket scientist, but an innocent fool. I agree that she can be a bit lazy, but as long as all of my issues are taken care of, whom cares what she looks like. She is not sleeping with me in my bed, so just do your job and we are all happy tenants. Yes, she watches everyone that comes in to the building and questions them and I'm glad she is doing that.

            Cant Complain Too Much

            I have also been asked to post a review. I cant complain too much about this building other then you have to be a dog lover or be very tolerant of them as there are quite a few here. Other then that, its a nice building in a great location and in my 2 years here, I made no enemies and was treated well. If you own a car, parking can be an issue as the building does not have any, but I rented a spont next door like other tenants with cars. If you dont own a car, its perfect as there are several buses one of which is right at the front door. I also liked the roof deck and was amazed that hardly anyone used it but I often found it all to myself, so its nice and quite there to view the city and to read a book. I also used the BBQ a few times that the building provides, so over all, I would rent here again. Good luck all.

              MOVING OUT REVIEW

              THIS IS A GREAT BUILDING AND I ENJOYED MY STAY HERE. I LOVE THE PANNELED MAHOGANY ELEVATOR AND ALL THE OTHER AMENITIES HERE. THE MANAGER IS COOL PEOPLE, NOTHING WRONG WITH HER OTHER THEN HER HYGINE AND APPEARENCE, BUT SHE IS HARMLESS AND MEANS WELL. I THINK ANYONE WILL BE HERE JUST AS HAPPY AS I HAVE BEEN.

                I am moving cause I have to, so sorry......

                I wanted to drop a line here cause Denise the building manager has been asking me to post a review when I move out. So I'm moving at the end of this month due to a job transfer and thus have no choice. I truly and honestly enjoyed living here for the past 3 years. I have never had any problems and therefore have no complaints. I enjoyed very much and did use all of the facilities and amenities. My only problem ever was an obnoxious neighbor, he did move finally, but I know the building cant control that. I always thought that Denise tried to make me happy and did the best she could. The 2 maintenance guys you have are very nice and friendly and if I ever move back to Chicago, I will definitely consider moving back here. Thank you all and good luck.

                  AWESOME PROPERTY, COOL MANAGER

                  This for sure is a great building. Lots of great features. I highly recommend this building to anyone as well. I think that anyone would be as pleased as I have been. I will definitely renew. The only problem that I have is the managers hygiene. She is cool, but for the above.

                    I'm pleased and happy, despite......

                    I was just in the process of writing a review myself when I saw the one about Comcast. I lived in 2 other buildings that did the same thing, but what can we do. I personally do not like Comcast but prefer RCN, but to choose his own. The building owners can make these rules and there is nothing we can do about it if we like living here. Overall, I am happy here with Denise and this building and when they do make the switch to RCN, we will just learn to live with it. I personally received better service from RCN as Comcast does not like to return calls. I think we will survive given all other issues in this world. Hey, I love the lobby in this building and the vending machines are a nice touch. I have never seen vending machines in apartment buildings before.

                      THEY WILL TAKE YOUR COMCAST AWAY!!!!!!!

                      I like the building, It's safe, clean, great location. Denise is doing terrific job in my opinion. But here's one major (to me it is) thing that is bothering me a lot: soon they going to push one cable provider (Comcast) out of the building and force everyone to have RCN (which I hate). $60 dollars will be added to your rent for this service. You can't sign the lease unless you're agreeing to this. I think that was a very very stupid idea!!! Very rude too!!! Imagine you went to a restaurant, ordered a chicken sandwich, and then you got a burger. And when you complain you waiter tells you: "Just shut up and eat!!!" That's how I see it. Very RUDE!!! I understand that the owner probably's buying the whole package at $20-25 bucks per unit and makes some serious dough by re-selling it to us at $60, and that's fine. I admire your business skills sir, but DON'T you dare to tell me what I should be spending my money on!!! How freaking rude and inconsiderate are you?!?!? I LOVE my Comcast. I like the deal I get (it's way less than $60 for a basic tv). And… See More>

                        Nice Building, Great Location

                        I've lived here for 2 years and think its a great building. I have never had issues with management or other tenants and would recommend this building to others and as a matter of fact, I did have my friend move in here as well. All is good at Belmont Harbor. Love those finishes and upgrades and my new hardwood floor.

                          Same Opinion Here, Thumbs Up.

                          I was roomates with the person in the below review and since our partnership broke up, I rented a different apartment here cause I like it here. Its right along the lake and I can even see the lake from my apartment. I love the mahogany elevator. The only problem that I saw were too many dogs in this building. So if you are a pet lover, you will fit right in. i like cats and not dogs, but in all honesty, I hardly ever heard them bark so its been pretty pretty quite here. but now I am moving on a different floor, so we shall see. We never had bad experiences here either, just great memories.

                            No Choice but to move, otherwise would have still stayed.

                            I got married and had to purchase a house as we are expecting twins. I have lived here for 4 years. I hae seen good things and have no complaints. The building is definately one of the best n the area and I would recommend it to anyone. It has a cool mixture of tenants, young and hip and old and professional. I read some of the reviews below and would agree that the amenities are great. I have never lived in a building with a free business center, fitness room or BBQ deck on the roof. I think Denise the manager is a fine person, she just need to work on her grooming some. Outside of that, I think she has done a fine job. The few negative reviews I agree, are malicious and unfounded. I loved my apartment and the finishes.

                              I am moving out as a result of a job transfer but would have stayed had I not had to move out of State. I never had a problem here in the 2 years I lived here and would recommend this building to anyone.

                                This is a great building in a super location and its wrong to falsify its condition because you were asked to move out for bothering other tenants. Grow up and find something else to do. This is an awesome building with great finishes and totally updated.

                                  MALICIOUS FALSE REVIEWS BY EVICTED TENANT

                                  I am very aware of this building as I have lived here for 4 years. We finally evicted ----- the trouble maker, ha ha and you keep writing false malicious reviews and we know its you, you pathetic looser. Go hang yourself. I was told the owners just a few years back spent over $5 million rehabbing this building and it shows. This is a fantastic building which is always occupied with a waiting list. Dont read these negative reviews if you are considering this building. Come and check it out yourself. this building is fantastic and so is ------, the building manager.

                                    I was also asked by Denise to write a review and am happy to do it. I think the location is fantastic. The building she told me was remodeled just a few years ago and they continue to make all sorts of updates and improvements. Love those glass vessel bowls and new shower heads as well as kitchen faucets that they installed after I moved in. They did not have to do that but they did. I have a very pretty black marble bathroom and wood cherry trim throughout my apartment. I like the various amenities that they offer here as well. The only problem is parking, but thats life in the big city as most buildings dont have any parking. Though I was able to lease a parking spot in the adjacent building when I do need the car, otherwise I take the bus everywhere, which is right out the front door. Its cool neighborhood with many trendy and upscale people my age and all other ages. I do appreciate the free fitness center and free business center and the free BBQ grill up on the roof deck. Its nice to have the vending machines as well for those… See More>

                                      Not the Bates Motel, But Close!

                                      Visited this building to check out apartments. Had to wait 5 minutes until the building manager would buzz me in (although she could easily see me from her fish bowl office). The manager seemed to have personal issues while trying to help me. The manager then started to explain things about the building, but I was already turned off, but I was curious to what a luxury apartment was, so I humored the manager and went to see the unit. I inspected the unit and found that it wasn t as large as I had hoped, but the bathroom was small, the kitchen seemed inadequate )not enough space in one area, more than enough in others). The stove was a shoved into an alcove and looked like it was the original when the building was put up (looking very 1960-ish). There was dangling cables in the bedroom and over the main entrance door as well, not sure why. The wood flooring seemed unevenly waxed. However, there was a spacious main closet.

                                        THUMBS UP FOR THIS BUILDING AAA

                                        I think this web site is about the building and the apartments and not about the building manager trying to do her job. So if you broke rules, you deserved to be scolded and maybe spanked. She makes it perfectly clear not to use the passenger elevator with dogs, but yet some of you continue to break this rule. She also asks people not to park in the front for more then 15 minutes, but yet some of you choose to park there for hours. I think she is a very nice and sincere person trying to do her job. In any event, this is a fantastic building with lots of free amenities and if you think you can find a better place, you should consider moving there for maybe you are the person that continuously breaks rules. I met several nice people in this building and they all love this place, hence its always full and hard to get in with a waiting list, dahhh. The maintenance staff is great and very pleasant as well.

                                          Denise the buildig manager asked me to write a review as well. I see that many people have and that's good for she told me that someone is giving her a hard time. Well, you cant make them all happy, but I think you sure definately try Denise. I love this building and all it has to offer. Lakeview area is great, full of cool artsy and professional people and along the lake with multiple bus routes and the L-Train just up the street. I will definately renew here. Denise, you are great, kisses. I never had a bad experience here or not being taken care of.

                                            Hey yah all, Denise the building manager asked me to write my opinion of this place. All I can say is that after searching around Lakeview for months, this is the best place that I found. I love everything that this place offers, its location and its affordable guys. Its a nice vintage building thats pretty much updated, right along the lake. Cool professional people live here as well and I met a nice girl here and we are dating now. Whom ever thought of that. No doubt you will like it as well.

Cool marble baths with neat vanity bowls, etc.... Nice building with nice tenants and I love the roof top deck with BBQ. I was also lucky to get in as they are full and have a waiting list.

                                                I have lived here for three years know with my family. It is a great place to live. We wouldn't of stayed here for so long if it wasn't. Denise is a grat building manager and I am sick of reading the reviews that says that she is not. She is very nice and helpful to the tenants. If there is a problem with your apartment or the building she takes care of it right away. So for those of you who complain about her grow up!!! She is awesome. The building is great, location, and the neighbors are very friendly. It is a great place to live.

                                                  THIS IS THE BEST BUILDING I HAVE EVER SEEN

                                                  I have read some of these reviews and thing that the bad ones are malicious and someone has an ax to grind with Denise, the building manager. For someone to allege that thy will move because of her is just absurd. She watches this building like a hawk and I like that. I want a very attentive manager as apposed to one whom doesnt care. I also have been living there for 2 years and dont see drug dealers, or prostitutes or roaches, so I agree with the below review, are you sure you are in the right building or just smoking funny stuff, cause this building is diverse with professionals, students and the hip crowd, but a classy crowd, for rent is not cheap here and thus there is no undesirables here to the best of my knowledge. I think most people are great. This is a great location with a totally update units having hardwood and black marble and new kitchens, I think this is a great place. I had a few maintenance issues and they were promtly taken care of. Also, Denise does not live in my unit, so whom cares if you like her or not.… See More>
