Resident • 2000 - 2002 Not Recommended
I lived on the 15th floor at Renzi Plaza. I had a great view facing north and a moderately nice apartment. But for what I paid in rent, I became very disappointed. I remember being mortified when the carpeting in the halls was replaced with this ugly, tacky, old-fashioned discounted mess. Adding insult to injury, they painted the trim and wall-skirting in the halls PEACH! as well as the ducts in the laundry room! The apartment doors were painted red (started to scratch off within weeks) and the hall lighting was replaced with the ugliest cheap-looking brass fixtures wholesale money could buy. As I have read in other reviews, the elevators seemed to be a common complaint... which was also the case when I lived there. And then there were the weekly fire drills... Oh yes. Apart from the building problems and high rent, I also got really sick of the Wrigleyville "Chad and Megan" types that infiltrated the area so I just decided to get out of there when my lease expired. Moved to Ravenswood and loved it.
