Poor upkeep and safety issues!!!!

1 working elevator for a 20 story building is ridiculous. Management has zero clue to what’s going on and does not address blatant safety issues all over the building. Rents are too high to justify living here.… See More >

    Terrible building

    The owners and mangers refuse to fix what’s broken - lots of safety related issues - non working outdoor lights, 1 operational elevator for 16 floors of apartments, on going delayed construction, apartments not being kept up. AND THEY WANT TO RAISE OUR RENT! Avoid!!!… See More >

      There are only 2 elevators in this 20 floor building, and one of two is often broken. Most recently, one was broken for 3 weeks. I've lived here for several years and there has been constant staff turnover. I don't think they screen employees very… See More >

          I would not recommend this place at all. Terrible management and way too expensive for what you're getting. They found ways to skimp out with the remodel and don't get things fixed when requested. Owners don't care about it either, they just let the management… See More >

            FACTOR IN HEATING ELECTRIC COST INTO LEASING BUDGET! If you're moving here in the summer, be forewarned that the building gets real cold in the winter. It's a renovated old building, they cleaned up the look but the core of the building is still old.… See More >

              Current resident. I moved in right when all of the renovations began. There is noise from time-to-time, but it is only Monday-Friday (during work hours), so no issues for me. Gorgeous apartments. Great staff. I can't wait for what is to come. To have a… See More >

                I have lived here 2 years and like this building a lot. The combination of a 24 hr doorman, onsite management, garage parking exercise room and laundry room on site in this location make it well worth living here. I rent from a great… See More >

                  I've lived in this building for two years and I'm thinking of renewing for a 3rd straight year. Some random feedback. Location is amazing. Cable and internet included with rent- can't beat that deal. The workout room is decent. Party room is awesome. The doormen keep the neighborhood crazies… See More >

                    I moved into this building about 6 months ago from Naperville, and it has been the best move of my life. My living experience has been everything and more than what I hoped for. All work order tickets are addressed promptly. The… See More >

                      This building may seem nice at first glance, but since moving in we have had many, many problems from plumbing, to laundry, to parking, etc, etc. Instead of attempting to remedy the issues or in the least listen to our concerns, the "management" at Clark… See More >

                          I think that this place is slightly above average. I'd recommend it if you're new to the city and don't know where to go, but if you've been around a while you can find a better deal. Overall, the building itself is clean… See More >
