    The property is beautiful and well-maintained. The property manager is polite and professional. The building seems to have a couple of tenants who are loud and doesn't seem to care about keeping the property beautiful and quiet. Hopefully they will move soon since it's a super small number. Other than that, OPC is a nice place to live.

      As a student and a new resident of the Chicagoland area, I would definitely recommend Oak Park City Apartments to my peers and beyond. While the noise is moderate due to construction around the area and the building being situated next to a fire station, it is a safe neighborhood in a great location with quick access to public transit. The garage is covered and heated, which was an important aspect for me. Staff and neighboring tenants are extremely pleasant and respectful of each other's space. Overall, it is a spacious and most cost-effective option in Oak Park.

        I have lived here for 4 consecutive years. There is a robust security system that is only accessible to residents at the front entrance and the climate-controlled garage, making it a very safe building. Very family friendly with a great lively neighborhood with all the restaurants, cafés, and shops you could ever need. The complex is very well-kept and maintained regularly. The entire team does a great job in making sure residents are comfortable and they are very responsive resolve any issues. Great place!

          Currently I live 750 miles away from Oak Park, IL. Applied for the apartment unit#23X with Oak Park City Apartments ("OPK") 4 weeks ago. After application process and the security deposit payment, OPK has been delaying in sending the lease agreement. After several emails and phone calls, OPK informed me that the current resident of that unit changed the mind and wanted to recall the move-out notice and renew the lease at the last minute. OPK failed to provide alternate apartment to me with the originally agreed rent. In doing so, OPK has wasted 4 weeks of my time through the application, and security deposit. Having initially chosen OPK, I neglected to select another Apartment community, and now I am going to pay much more to another apartment community than what I am supposed to be pay at OPK. I trusted OKP so without even seeing this unit and without meeting any of their staff, I filled their online application, used CC, had most of the communication via emails. OPK lost the trustworthiness!! I share my bad experience so that future prospective tenants are careful when dealing with this OPK community.

            Hello, Krishnan, and thank you for sharing your feedback with Oak Park City Apartments. We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced and assure you we take this matter very seriously. It was unfortunate that our team was unable to accommodate the original apartment home, but we were happy to provide an alternative of a larger floorplan that was less expensive than the original apartment home quoted. We are very sorry this accommodation did not meet your needs, and we hope the refund of the holding deposit and application fee helped alleviate the inconvenience. Again, we are very sorry our team was unable to ensure your satisfaction, and should you have any additional comments or concerns, please, don't hesitate to contact us at opkpropmgr@villagegreen.com or 708-386-0707. Thank you, Karena L., Property Manager

            Great location and very friendly staff. Any minor maintenance issues we had was taken care of the same day or the next morning. It's also very convenient since I work late hours that the office delivers my packages to my apartment for me. I recommend to anyone looking for a nice, clean, quiet place.

              Would strongly recommend to continue looking for other options. The office staff/management is the worst I have ever been around. Constantly trying to nickel-and-dime you in addition to the incredibly high prices. The office staff is only consists of 2-3 people and thus are are often missing either because they are busy helping others or more likely just being inefficient (or in case of ----, the property manager, out taking a smoke break). They sell you a community feel, but that couldnt be further from the truth. Hope you dont make the same mistake I did. Best of luck.

                This place has always accommodated my every need! Great staff including maintenance! It is very close to the green line and to the Loyola Medical Campus where I attend grad school. The apartments look amazing and are in great shape. Granite counter tops! Great place!

                  This place is awful. It's spring, the temperatures are rising and it's extremely humid outside, and management refuses to turn on the A/C. When I signed my lease, I was told I have control over the temperature in my apartment. It's currently 84 degrees outside with 80% humidity, and I can't turn on my A/C. It's been like this for the past week. I've brought it up with different members of management, and they simply will not give me a straight answer as to why they refuse to turn on the A/C. I can't even use the gym, because it's unbearably hot. I've attached a picture showing the thermostat in there, where it's set to on, set to cool, and set at 45 degrees, but it's a scorching 85 degrees in there. I actually look forward to going to my dead end job because they at least keep the place at a comfortable 72 degrees. I know I just wrote an entire review based on one thing, but do you really want to live in a place where they'll flat out lie to you?

                    What a place to live!!! I work in the city, and lived in the south loop not wanting to move out to the suburbs. My wife got a job in Oak Brook so Oak Park seemed like the logical place to settle down in the middle. Our expirience started off great, when we came to tour there were treats in the office and the man that showed us around was more than patient because my wife and I asked a ton of questions. He answered every single one of them, as well as giving us further information about what he has learned about restaurants in town. Now every day before I head up to our apartment from work I stop in the office for a cup of coffee and restaurant advise from the office staff. He has not been off on a sugestion yet. If you are moving to the Oak Park area this place will not do you wrong, best of the city and the burbs.

                      I just moved in here in May and everything has been terrific. From renting to moving in the office staff has been fantastic and more than accomodating. In addition when I came to see my apartment they showed me around and told me of a new fitness center and resident area. When I came to move in the were underway and are now complete. Wow are these fantastic!! Best move ever!

                        This place is OK at best. While I was living here, you could hear loud teenagers in the courtyard at night all summer long, dogs running free in the hallways multiple times (they did send e-mails out about this I believe), dogs going to the bathroom everywhere. My neighbor was very noisy and despite complaints, nothing ever came of it. I think the building is nice, but the people living in it don't follow the rules a lot and there isn't much the complex can do about it. For the amount of money it costs to live here, you can live in a MUCH nicer place in Oak Park. The area is great, but if you walk on Lake Street, you will see tons of other great apartments. On the other hand, if you have a dog and don't want to clean up after it, you might like it here.

                          Although we only used Oak Park City Apartments as a short term rental, the short time we were there was excellent. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but you are on Lake St in the center of the Village, walking distance to everything which can't be beat. They have updated all the carpets in the common areas and recently painted those walls as well. There are issues, just like in any large building, but they seem to be on top of them and are always keeping the tenants informed. They also seem to listen to residents, as the previous reviewer stated there are dead grass spots in the courtyard, however since that time, pets are no longer allowed to be in the courtyard, hence resolving the dead grass issue. The building is secure and staff is very friendly, always accomdating. The units are well maintained a they have many floor plans to choose from. Another plus is as far as I can tell, very well insulated from noise. We rarely heard noises from other units, which is a huge plus in my book. Location can't be beat, clean, well maintained, professional staff. I would recommend to my friends.

                            I have thought very carefully. And I have decided to review this as carefully and fairly as I can. I have seen a lot of recent reviews. And it seems that there have been a lot of very glowing ones lately. But they are all on the same couple of days. Additionally they all followed one bad review. And if you go back and look it seems like this is the way it always works. One really bad review. Then a lot of wonderful reviews immediately after. This place is not either the horrible place or amazing place the other reviews claim. It is a fine place to live with some issues. I would like to point out the good and the bad as fairly as possible. The building itself is very attractive. Well landscaped courtyard and a pretty style. The fountain is pretty in the summer and there were lovely lights in the trees in this past winter. However recently pets have been allowed to use the courtyard as a toilet. This has only started happening since the new manager and custodian now have dogs. It makes for some unsightly dead grass patches which take from the attractiveness of the… See More>

                              I am a transplant from TN. This building is the ONLY place I have lived since relocating 7 years ago. I am a first floor resident and witnessed the birth of the transformation. While the colors were tried on the walls right outside of my unit, I am pleased with the final results. The fresh paint job falls right in line with the new year. It was done so quickly, I dont remember what it looked like before. Good job with the upgrades. I can't wait to see the final carpet renewal...I'll be walking on sunshine!

                                I'm a fairly new resident to the building and I absolutely LOVE the OPCA. It's a very family-friendly, pet-friendly oriented community. They have a lot of activities going on to keep you engage and meeting new residents. My son absolutely loves it. They take a lot of pride in the upkeep of the property, and maintenance is quick to respond. Management is very professional and caring. We currently undergoing some remodeling and its just enhancing what's already a beautiful place to live. Many of my guest who come to visit say it feels/looks like living in 5 star Hotel. HIghly recommend if looking in Oak Park area.

It was tough leaving our house, but the staff here really makes this building feel like home. From on-going maintenance to paint and carpeting updates and periodic happy hours and parties, this is a great place to live. We're looking forward to moving back to our house soon but will miss this community and the great staff here. By the way, my rent includes pet rent, 2 indoor garage parking spaces, and a short-term lease fee.

                                    I have lived here several years now, in two different apartments (needed a change of scenery). The apartments are very comfortable. The property managers, leasing agents, and maintenance staff have always been great. The location and proximity to the green line are huge perks. Definitely worth checking out.

                                      My time here at Oak Park City is almost coming to an end and I am very sad. I have lived here for over 2 years and have seen many staff members come and go, Lindsey and her team are by far the best there has been. I can come into the office and sit and chat for as long as I want with the staff, they always remember my name, my dogs name and every one in my family. It really is like having my own private staff here, they deliver my packages to my apartment if I am not home, Lindsey and Sara have walked my dog multiple times when I have not been able to get home in time and they even fed my cat while I went on vacation! If I wasn't moving because of a job relocation I would never leave! The building is getting new paint and new carpet and even a larger fitness center in the next few months! The building is the cleanest I have ever seen it and the maintenance men are great! Sol and Cuyo are always around to help me with anything. I… See More>

                                        This place is a joke. Not what is advertised when you rent. Supposed to be luxury, for business people, quiet, ect, ect. Instead is rundown, full of dangerous or rude neighbors, noisy and a constant battle with management and maintenence to resolve issues. Elevators break down continually, often with people inside them. You would think once or twice would be enough, but instead it keeps happening! Rundown hallways are being 'fixed' with a sloppy paintjob. Unsafe situations with other residents like threats, physical confrontations, ect are ignored or brushed aside. Office staff is friendly but constantly changing. Parking garage is extra and there is nowhere to park if you don't pay. Staff ignores when neighbors are breaking rules like having extra pets when only two are allowed. Definately would not recommend.

                                          The best part about this apartment complex is the staff. Sara is fantastic and makes it feel like you are home and have someone looking out for you. The rest of the team is also great. Repairs are made quickly and everyone is friendly and professional. The staff was especially helpful when I was moving in and needed some extra help coordinating my move. The location is fantastic and the parking is good. The apartments are lovely and most of the neighbors are friendly and nice.

                                            Our apartment was lovely. Everything is very convenient eith Trader joes, Whole Foods and two other grocery stores within a mile. Great restaurants inOak PRk and a fabulous library 2blocks away. But the best part was the people who staff the apartment complex. They truly give you a feeling you are very welcome and important to them. Twice we needed a repair -water pressure in the shower and air conditioner dial. Both times someone was there within a couple of hours and took care of the repair in just a few minutes. There is an indoor parking garage and laundry room on every floor. All in all good place to rent.

                                              Been living at Oak Park City Apartments for about 4 months now. The location is great and very convienent to many shops, restaurants and night life, not to mention easy access to the Green Line heading downtown. The apartment itself is very nice. Clean, updated kitches, and a great courtyard area. The staff, including the new property manager, is super friendly and always goes out of their way to help residents with anything and everything. The maintenance staff is very quick to respond to repairs and are courteous and professional. I have no complaints about Oak Park City Apartments and look forward to a lengthy stay.

                                                My husband and I moved in about 2 months ago and we have never been so pleased. Coming from the suburbs we were a little nervous about being in a "city" apartment but have found ourselves plesantly suprised and love everything from the under ground parking to the beautiful courtyard view we have. We can walk to everything and anything we need and have found a new kind of living here in Oak Park. The office girls counldn't be nicer and they even help me out when I am running late by putting my packages inside my home if I cannot get to the office by the time they close. I love it here and I am looking forward to many years to come!

                                                  Excellent Apartments with a Great Staff

                                                  I moved into the apartments for about 8 months while resolving some property issues and really enjoyed my time here. The staff is courteous, helpful and reliable. Maintenance is taken care of regularly. The rest of the tenants are friendly. When I moved in, I needed to rent furniture. The leasing agent took care of the whole thing and both the rent and furniture rental are on one bill. All in all, probably the best apartment I've ever had. I would definitely recommend it.
