I've been living at the Grandeur Apartments a little over a year. May 2008 - June 2009. I read a lot of these reviews and my guess is that most the the complainers are not at all familiar with living in an older city like Chicago. I have rented in Chicago northside lake front area for over 6 years in a few different areas and for an "urban" close to downtown location with the red, purple and brown line so readily accessible. This location is great. Yes the heat can be an issue, but you can turn off the radiator and open a window and best part is you don't pay for it. I have not had a rodent or bug problem here. My apartment is great, sunny and rent is affordable for the location. Can't beat it. Marie Daravan is great building manager. If you have a valid concerns or problems, Marie will definitely take care of them. It's great having clean shoveled sidewalks in the winter. Those people who are complaining probably don't understand that they are renting apartments in older buildings in an old city (one of the most expensive cities even) and they would probably say the same of any apartment (short of a luxury) in Chicago.
