So far the apartment is great. Maintenance is really responsive. Staff is helpful in answering questions. We had to be a bit proactive with the staff in making sure all our paperwork was in order prior to move in, making sure the mailbox was set up, names entered in phone system, but that’s a very minor criticism. So far the experience has been great!

Great place to live and nice amenities! It has been a challenge most recently to use grill and pool area due to residents hosting their own large parties, so rules do need better monitoring by management.

1717 Apartments is a great place to live. Wonderful property management and maintenance staff who are nice, professional and respond quickly. Amenities you want and use. Perfect neighborhood walking distance from downtown Evanston.

I really like all the amenities in the 1717 apartment such as gym, pool, and free coffee! Also, providing monthly special events make me happy.

There are lots of special monthly events so that residents can more enjoy their lives in this apt, and it also helps me to get along with neighbors easily.

Excited to have moved in recently, the floor plans are spacious and its minutes walk from stores and restaurants in downtown Evanston - can’t wait for the summer!!

Great experience at 1717. Very quiet and peaceful. I love the proximity to everything. I have not had any issues living here at all. The staff is extremely friendly and so are the neighbors. I’m glad that I chose 1717.

1717 is an appealing building from the outside and the inside. Jeff, Teryn, and Rachel are professional, friendly, and delightful Team Managers. They make sure ALL Residents are Safe in the building, A Big Thank You Team Leaders.

It’s been bad as there have been major issues in the apartments surrounding my apartment. Management is also rude and doesn’t deal with issues in a timely fashion. The apartments themselves and the amenities are really nice but nothing else about the apartment is good. The maintenance folk are good too. It’s just apartment management and the constant issues such as false fire alarms, burst pipes, water damage, broken fitness machines for six months, etc. that are the problems.

Overall clean facilities and quiet. Temperature in cafe/lounge too cold and gym temperature too warm. Need better study space/office with more lighting. Very dim in lounge and cafe space

The facility is super nice and brand new, the managers are helpful and cheerful. Services are pretty prompt and quick and neighbors are friendly.

Great apartment! Only drawback is no signal in the building. Hard to make phone calls or even text. Overall, great experience and confortable stay!

It's a well-managed BUILDING & community. The staffs are all extremely friendly and helpful. The facilities are also well-maintained in this building, such as the mailbox room, the pool, and the gym. The location is really good as well. It's close to the train station and also the rail, about 5 mins walk to downtown evanston. A great place to live in evanston!

It’s so conviniente to live in 1717 because of location, amenities, management staff, maintenance services, and everything else. Periodically, there are social events to watch sports, join other residents and enjoy good food and drinks. I really recommend to live at 1717.

The leasing staff is fabulous! I moved here from out of state the made the process so easy ! I can’t thank them enough for fielding all my questions and making me feel so welcome when I arrived.

Ok I like living here lots of kellogg students it’s fun but need more coffee cups and annoying that you charge for printing now and I like the pool but it could be bigger

1717 Apartments is a great place to call home. The best features are professional and responsive property management and maintenance staff. Great walkable neighborhood, safe, quiet, nice amenities, love the outdoor deck and pool, and friendly neighbors.

Great location and nice amenities! The AC/heat is very loud. And the hit water in shower does not last life than a few minutes. With the higher price point, I would have expected not to have these issues.

Great move in experience. Leasing office was very helpful in the move. Clean facilities and large, spacious luxury apartments. Rooftop pool and Starbucks coffee are nice perks

Quiet community overall with friendly staff. Ammenties including gym and study space could be improved. Water heating needs improvement; water not sufficiently warm.

The leasing managers & maintenance are professional, helpful, and friendly. Great neighbors and the managers make sure the residents are in a safe environment. The local community is great with a variety of restaurants to choose from, there is public transportation, diverse town, walking distance to the grocery stores, and there is a variety of activities to do all four seasons (summer, fall, spring, and winter).

We've lived here for a few years now, and have enjoyed living in our building - it's well maintained, and the amenities are really desirable. In the same time though, we have seen a fair share of turnover in the main office staff. It would be great if there was a way of introducing new team members to our community when they begin their role!

Great community, friendly, neat, helping each other, smile all the time, well educated, clean, party friendly, no noises at night or weekends

Helpful, responsive and knowledgeable; team is able to solve problems and quickly responds to all questions with options. Thanks for making this so easy

Great value, good location, good amenities. Maintenance staff are amazing! Slight difficulty moving in and signing the lease but everyone was very helpful once arrived.
