I have lived here over 3 years and can say that I have had a very good experience. Oktunc the manager has been great to us and helpful even during Covid when I was struggling. It is an older building but I can attest that they ware working on it constantly and renovating many of the apartments. The maintenance guys are great and always fix things quickly (if they can’t, they let me know. I have a son so safety is very important and I never feel unsafe here. I can honestly give my endorsement based on my own experience and have enjoyed living here.

    We generally liked living in the Scoville Block #1 Apartments on Lake and Oak Park Ave. Washers were frequently out of service and the second elevator that the landlord, Oktunc, promised never came to fruition in the 4 years we lived there, but it was generally a nice place to live. Not too loud and definitely served its purpose. Maintenance was quick to respond and they were really nice people when they did come. We had a significant mouse problem until the day we moved out. We caught and saw 3 mice in total, but could hear the squeaking through the walls, so we knew the problem was large. The worst part of living here was moving out. The landlord made it impossible to get our entire security deposit back even though our apartment was in great shape when we left. They gave responses about the state of the apartment but never provided proof that the state of the apartment warranted the excessive costs they charged. It feels like even though I gave a significant amount of time and energy towards living in this place, they ended up being shady and swindling me out of money that I deserved to… See More>

      Common areas are always filthy- embarassing to bring friends over. They boasted about security when we were prospective tenants but doors are never locked and always propped open mostly by manager's restaurant employees, vagrants hanging around inside building in basement, hallways etc. Apartment NOT clean when moved in. No screens or storm windows for very old windows. Washers and dryers never working. Management is not responsive to maintenance requests. Supposed to be nonsmoking but building always smells lime cigarettes and weed. Restaurant employees smoke inside building.

        Do not live here. The management is rude and unhelpful. The plumber stared meanly at me and was very rude. The landlords refused to fix a loud noise that was emanating from one of the appliances and it kept me and my roommates up every night. The apartment was not cleaned when we arrived and yet we were charged huge 'cleaning fees' when we left. There were insects in the apartment and management did not care. I did not feel safe here. Do not live here.

          Lived here for 1 year. Excellent location, right across street from Green Line. The maintenance here is great; quick response and friendly staff! The owner of the building is always there and very helpful. People here who have lived in Scoville Block 1 for years and love it. Garage parking is right next door!The building is quiet and I do not hear my neighbors; actually I rarely see them!

The Owner James was so very kind, He is a total man of integrety ,along with his help;Marteen, Ben,Octush and others, in fact they always stopped and greeted us along with our dogs..The building has always been very clean,quiet, and very peaceful,and landry facillities on same floor and Very clean.. Anytime we needed anything they were there on the fly..The staff in the office are very sweet people as well..We moved here from Fl. and our experience has been ONLY wonderful, If you have pets, the park acrooss the street next to our library is great..Its a nice and safe area, Especially if you're a female, Its nice to take walks in the evening, and go for early runs, It's right accross fm the train station ,So its easy to take it straight to Airport,or Downtown Chicago!! I loved living here!, However, I have to move to Colorado Springs to go to Bible College... I totally recomend this Place:)Its one of our favorite places to ever live.. Hephzibah

              DO NOT RENT HERE

              I've had the worst experience with Scoville Block #1 - serious issues with rodents, cockroaches and other infestations. Very poor customer service - management is rude and unresponsive to the simplest requests. I had to vacate my apartment after 8 years of being a loyal tenant due to out of control rodent infestation, which they claimed was coming from another tenant's apartment. The building is under constant construction with no results. Halls are dirty, floors constantly torn up. My windows were not washed in the entire 8 years in which I resided here. These are landlords who personify the term "slumlord" and know that the location and relatively low rents keep people renting here. I would absolutely NOT recommend to anyone looking here.

                  Terrible, Collapsed ceiling, non-working toilet, disinterested management.

                  Beautiful, historic building, great location, originally very excited to be living there. Manager Lee was very pleasant and helpful at first. Maintenance guy Lee was friendly but made it clear he was not allowed to do repairs. Oktunc the assistant manager is arrogant and threatening. Common areas have dangling wires and unfinished walls that management will tell you on your initial walkthrough will be repaired and presentable within the month. I lived there for 2.5 years and work was never done. I had no phone line when I moved in, had to pay for one to be installed and management refused to reimburse me until I pointed out by law they had to provide it. The roof itself is in bad repair. Any time there was a heavy rain, water ran into the ceiling and collapsed the plaster all over the floor. They fixed it three times during my tenure there. The last time it happened they refused to fix it until I left, which was four-five months later. My toilet wouldn't flush for close to two months without a plunger and no one fixed it until I complained to Village… See More>
