First off, let me say I love the Streeter. It has always been on the top of my places to live. The building is clean and well-maintained and you can't beat the location. With that being said, the building manager is also very willing to sit and talk with you about any questions you might have. However, there is one sales agent that is one of the rudest people I have ever dealt with. I am not sure if it was just an off day when I called in but she was short, condescending and quick to get me off the phone. I hope they read these reviews because if I was the manager I would not want her working for me. I believe her name started with an "Ev" and she talked so fast I couldn't even understand.

    My wife and I lived here for just over two years and it was a great experience. The facilities were always well maintained and the amenities were top-notch. The gym was great and it allowed us to avoid the cost of a monthly gym membership for the entire time we lived there. Also, the business center, coffee, etc. (along with the gym) - while not part of our original decision to live there, ended up being very convenient and made living there very comfortable. It is nice to be able to have everything you need in one enclosed place, particularly during the winter months. Parking was never a problem. Washer/Dryer in-unit was a huge plus, particularly as few places in the area had this feature. Also, most importantly, the staff and maintenance team were extremely friendly and very good at their jobs. They responded quickly to any question or concern and were always very courteous and professional. The best staff I have ever encountered in a rental apartment. Overall, a great place to live. I highly recommend it.

      I have lived in several other apartments in the downtown Chicago area. The Streeter is by far the absolute best. The entire staff, from the doorman....to the professional staff...to include the maintenance staff ......all workers are fantastic. I highly recommend that someone looking for a great place to stay, check out The Streeter.

          I lived in three high rise buildings in Chicago in the past seven years. The Streeter is hands down the best living offered for a rental unit downtown. Excellent staff, outstanding doormen, great walking score, everything you need is within walking distance, competent management, beautiful common areas and amenities, courteous and efficient maintenance staff who always say hello with a smile and offer any assistance, and a fitness center that rivals any membership club. At least treat yourself to a tour. I vacated to return to California but will lease another studio unit there this spring. That is a great indication of how the place is run.

            I lived at the Streeter for three years, and I absolutely loved my time there. Even though the building itself is relatively new (with amazing amenities), numerous upgrades were made to the property-from revamping the pool deck, to completely redoing the party room, to updating the treadmills in the gym. Speaking of amenities, the 13th floor has an excellent business center (with free printing!); a library where you can leave a book, take a book or work; a gorgeous party room with large flat screen tvs, pool tables, and various gaming systems; a rooftop pool; and an incredible gym! The gym has a basketball court (a 1/2 court), a hot tub, every machine you could need, and excellent weights. On Saturday mornings they also offer free yoga. We also get free cable and internet throughout the building (including in the apartment). The building itself is clean and quiet. I rarely heard my neighbors. I only needed maintenance a couple times over my three years, and the maintenance people are incredible. Not only do they respond quickly, but are very nice and trustworthy (I would never hesitate to let anyone the worked in the building into my apartment if I weren't… See More>

              Two years and counting!

              My wife and I have lived here about two years and really cannot say enough good things about the building, staff, and neighborhood. The building: I believe it was built around 2008 and truly professional maintenance staff keeps it looking brand new. The amenities, from the pool deck to spa, fitness center, and library, are all top notch so you can probably forget about that health club membership. Many of the floorplans are very unique and give you an opportunity to make your place feel more like home than the typical box-with-a-window downtown apartment. As far as I know, they all have floor-to-ceiling glass so you get plenty of natural light. Definitely choose hard floors if you have the option, they are well worth the few extra bucks. These floors really disperse the light and open up the apartment space (see pictures). The staff: As I mentioned earlier, the maintenance staff here is awesome. You get to know everybody by name, not because they are in your apartment fixing things (this is quite rare) but because you see them all the time taking proactive care of the building. The office staff is just as fantastic and never hesitate to… See More>

                Premier facility and staff

                This property has a superior management team and is ideally located in Streeterville. Its amenities are outstanding and very well maintained. The friendly staff is extremely accommodating, and make one truly feel at home. We couldn't offer a higher recommendation.

                  What more could you ask for?!?

                  I have lived at The Streeter for about a year now. No complaints and I am a very picky person when it comes to where I live. The lobby and amenities floor are always spotless and you can't beat what they have to offer or the location. You are walking distance from pretty much anything you need! Whenever we have a problem (ie. toilet clog) the maintenance is quick to respond and has the problem fixed before I get home from work. I have been living in the city for 5 years and this apartment is the longest I have stayed in one place. Pretty impressive. AND I don't plan on moving for a few years!

                    Great Place to Live

                    I lived in the Streeter this past year and my experience was great. The maintenance staff was very responsive and the doormen were really friendly. The Streeter is located in a popular area which makes it very convenient for shopping, dining out, and going out. However, I felt very safe living here, knowing that the doormen would call and make sure I authorized whoever was coming to my apartment. Even though the Streeter might be more expensive than other buildings in the area, The Streeter s amenities are definitely worth the price. The building amenities were great, they have a very cool party room, pool & BBQ area, and a nice study room they even had shopping carts in case you needed to go to the supermarket! Throughout the year, the Streeter s management also planned many activities intended for networking and getting to know other residents in the building. In addition, the Streeter is one of the few rental high rises that allow residents to change the flooring from carpet to wood for an additional premium per month which I took advantage of. My favorite thing about the Streeter was that they always had cabs available at any time… See More>

                        Leasing agents may lie to you and subsequently deny it.

                        At least one person in their office completely lied to me about the waitlist. I was told I was 3rd on the wait list and would hear a decision in 2 days (24 hours max per person in front of me). The agent said I would likely find a convertible in June (which is when I need it) - we specifically asked this. I put down the application fee and deposit with this knowledge. I called after 2 days, and a different agent told me there were actually 6 people in front of me on the waitlist! What the hell? That basically meant my chances of getting the apartment were zero - I wasted the $50 application fee. The original agent called me the next day and (duh) told me I didn't get the apartment, and the next available ones would be in July! She then denied that anyone told me I was 7th on the waitlist, and that I was now 4th (I don't think she understands simple math: 7 people - 3 people minimum (for the 3 days I waited and the 24 hours maximum notice per person) = 4! Sigh.) I don't appreciate being lied to, and if this… See More>

                          I have lived in The Streeter for a year and have had nothing but good experiences. The apartment is well constructed, I like the floor to ceiling windows and the views. The doormen/women are very friendly and willing to help all the time. Everything is maintained well. The amenities - pool, indoor spa, indoor resistance pool, basketball court, steam room, sauna, exercise room, computer room, library, game room and grilling area are always clean and inviting. The management here is friendly and they make you feel at home. The parking garage is clean, secure, and protected from weather. I must also say I was very pleasantly surprised at how quiet it is in the apartment. This place is great.

                            This is a fabulous residential building and community. The views are spectacular. The location is superb. I have a small one bedroom, but the walk in closet and bathroom are oversized and there is additional storage on the 49th floor. The management of this building is excellent - responsive to requests and to ideas. Neighbors are nice. It is somewhat transient because there are graduate students and medical residents who cycle in and out, but there is also a sizable community of stable and tenured residents. Most of all, I have to commend the staff. They are like family. Always friendly, helpful and willing to go above and beyond. I am never disturbed by neighbors or hall noise. I have no complaint about construction noise. We are notified weekly where renovations will be taking place. The owner/manager have upgraded the apartments with rich- looking hardwood floors, new cabinetry, stainless appliances, bath fixtures and appointments. Yes, it is a relatively new building and I appreciate that they undertake improvements before things become outdated or shabby. There are various food trucks parked in the driveway several times a week and restaurants are invited in to serve meals in the lobby. Great amenities.… See More>

                              leasing agents know how to sell!

                              there have been a number of issues here. the walls are thin and if your neighbor decides to cook one night... you'll know it- it comes through the vents. the leasing agent told me and my family that cable AND internet were included--- and they are.. in the common areas. the cable is included BUT contrary to what i was told several times, the internet is not. not that an extra $50 per month is a big deal but it just shouldn't be said at all if it isn't true.

                                Very Pleasant Experience

                                I am quite surprised to see so many negative reviews. We have lived in the building for close to a year and half. The management staff has made a strong effort to meet our demands and are very willing to figure out a solution. For instance, they allowed us to downgrade from a 2 BDRM apartment into 1 BDRM with easy and understanding.They recently brought in an event planner for the building, who has already put together a variety of fun events. If you were looking for an apartment rental building with more than condo amenities, the Streeter is my top recommendation.

                                  I must disagree with some of the reviews below regarding the Streeter. I am a new tenant (moved in a couple of months ago) and have found the place to be very nice and the management to be extremely accommodating. They have been professional in keeping tenants appraised during the gas outage period (which, was clearly outside of their control) and have provided rent credits and even threw a party to tenants to account for any inconvenience caused - these are hardly traits of inconsiderate management. Examples of how accommodating the team at the Streeter were: 1. they allowed me to make reasonable alterations (without the need to sign up to any onerous requirements and based on the understanding that I would restore the apartment to the way it used to be - other buildings were reluctant to allow me to do the alterations I requested); 2. maintenance team always help out (with small as well as big requests) and are always available even on weekends; 3. management team have an open-door policy and people can resolve their issues pretty quickly if need be; 4. given that I am foreign, they were reasonable in their requests for credit adequacy and… See More>

                                    Very Disappointed

                                    I have lived in the Streeter for the past four years in a 2 bdrm / 2 bathroom. I've really liked this building but have several complaints about how inconsiderate management can be towards certain tenant requests or needs. It's almost as if they are completely non-negotiable once you have signed the lease and this is not the impression that you are first given. It's very black and white and you would assume they would take loyalty / length of stay into account. Having lived here for a while, I am very disappointed by their complete lack of flexibility - I felt they were much more understanding in the beginning, but that has gone out the door. Given my long time here, and the fact that I have referred people here, paid timely rent of, now, collectively, close to 100K, kept the apartment in excellent condition, and have been understanding of the various issues (flooding, electricity outage, constructions), I would have expected a little more on their end. To sum it up, I am very disappointed and will no longer continue to support this building.

                                      This place sucks - don't move in (or sublease my place, so I can move out)

                                      Okay. Seriously, save yourselves the frustration and extra money and DON'T fall for this places' outward appearance. Everything looks great at first. Once you really look, you will see things are not as they first appeared. Stuff is just cheap and breaks all the time. A few problems I have had: 1) you can hear neighbors thru the walls (especially in the bathroom) 2) there is absolutely NO cabinet space in the kitchen 3) my appliances break all the time 4) heater doesn't work even though they say you can choose heat or ac whenever you want 5) they keep shutting public areas down to remodel. the building is like 5 years old, what's with all the remodeling? This place is just too expensive to have all these problems.

                                          I looked at a studio and really liked it, but it was on a dog floor and as a NU grad student that didn't work for me. Everything else though was great, esp the gym with the bball court. The leasing agent who helped me is the best in town, no joke. I checked out over 12 apartment buildings in the city and she was the best. She's also unbelievably good looking. Clean place, close to NU's campus, Mich Ave and a nice staff (at least the lady who I worked with) so definitely worth checking out.

                                            This building is great! I have moved there from LA for school and couldn t ask for better. Location is great! Everything is walking distance. No worries about extra bills since most utilities included with rent. The staff is great, always helping out and maintenance service is fast. I highly recommend this building if you are looking for an easy and worry free way of living.

                                              I feel compelled to write a review even though I've been here for only a month because I was scared when we signed a 2 year lease that there would be some magical change for the worse after we signed the lease. But they are just as pleasant as when we first visited! :) Maybe it's because we are from NY. But whatever...take all these reviews with a grain of salt. My interpretation is that the new management is great and the maintenance is very quick. The doormen/women are happy. There seems to be a lot of competition in the area so I am sure a lot of these reviews are probably "my building is better than yours so I can get more tenants" reviews. The apartments are big to me. We moved 8 bedrooms worth of stuff into 3 no problem. We have a china cabinet for dish storage so cabinet space is not a problem. I don't hear a peep out of the neighbors. And we are not quiet either and our neighbor says they don't hear us. One night I locked myself out and was banging on… See More>

                                                Apparently, there is no need to provide tenants with gas. The Streeter told us Wed that they were shutting off the gas for 4 hours for inspection. Well, it's Friday now and still no gas. I need to shower. I need to do laundry. I need to use the freakin' stove to cook things. I pay 2k plus per month for a one bedroom apartment. This is ridiculous. Can I get an update??? I guess it's still not fixed because I just had to wash my face in arctic water this morning. Oh and about their so-called 4 pipe heating system. It's supposed to allow tenants to turn on the a/c or heater whenever they want - or at least that's what the sign in the lobby says. But I haven't been able to turn on the heater at all - and it's been in the 40's and low 50's several nights in a row. I think they may be using the additional 2 pipes to syphon off extra money from tenants. I've lived in several highrises in the city and never had these types of issues. In the… See More>

                                                  Too Much Smoking - Building Stinks of Smoke

                                                  This is a great building with great management, but there are problems with people who smoke. If you have a smoker located on your floor or below you, expect to have your apartment smelling of smoke. The smoke seeps into the ventilation systems and gets circulated throughout the building. I have not had the problem in other places I have rented and Chicago and most likely will not renew my lease because of this smoking issue. Its a shame a few smokers are ruining the building for everyone.
