This is the best apartment complex my husband & I've ever lived in! The location is just amazing (Fulton & Canal – next to Ogilvie and Fulton Market District), the staff and management are extremely organized and helpful, and the premises are well maintained. Special Mention of Safira, the property manager. Safira is the reason we went ahead to sign the lease at Left Bank. We looked at many places downtown but, the moment that Safira picked up the phone on our initial informational phone call, we knew we would be able to call this place home. Safira expedited the whole process, and made sure that our living arrangements were all taken care of when we arrived to Chicago from Connecticut for the first time. She is so wonderful and joy to interact with. She has been always attentive of our needs. Safira and the entire office staff are fantastic people, keep it up y'all! The apartments are beautiful and there are great amenities such as an amazing rooftop deck with grilling stations and an awesome view of Chicago, heated Jacuzzi, party room, entertainment and relaxing lounges. The building always feels secure and safe and residents are warm and friendly. Below is a list of stuff that's really good about this place from someone who's lived here more than 4 years: -The maintenance team is friendly and is constantly cleaning the hallways and main areas. -They respond to requests quickly. -They have 24/7 friendly and personable concierge staff. -They have a dry cleaner that is also the package receiving room, the lady over there is very professional. You don’t have to leave the building for Drop off/pick up. -They have a convenience store in the building that has a wide variety of food items/snacks/grocery. -Our one bedroom and one bathroom apartment had a TON of storage! The walk-in closets were amazing! -We never had to worry about parking spaces in the garage. Access to Zip cars in the parking garage. -The heated pool was perfect and well maintained. -24/7 large gym and weights room with lots of machines and space – impressive for an apartment complex. -Beautiful club rooms with pool tables and new upgraded kitchen and furniture. -Free Coffee in the mornings in the lobby. -Nice appliances (including washer & dryer!) -We had an amazing view of the river from our apartment. It was outstanding. -Easy Access to I-90, EL Trains (Pink/Green/Brown & Blue) and Metra. -Online community and rent pay center - very convenient. -Most residents are young professionals - easy to make friends. Left Bank also sets up socials frequently which were nice. We've really enjoyed my time here, as have friends and family who've come to visit. Left Bank has earned their 5-star rating! We highly recommend Left Bank if you're looking for luxurious downtown Chicago living.
I really enjoyed my time here. I would give a summary in simple bullet points -The property managers were willing to work with me considering the short timeline I had to move out of my previous apartment and we managed to get everything sorted out just in time for the move. Talk about blessings. -The apartment was well cleaned and organized prior to moving in and all the apartments I viewed were really really good -The lobby of the building is so beautiful. That is one of the things that stole my heart when I walked in here. -The concierge staff are extremely professional (everyone really is) and assisted in helping my move in and just making my stay better. Extremely friendly, awesome people -The location is pretty sweet. 10 minute walk to Jewel Osco and 4 minutes to the green and pink line which can connect you to the other lines on the CTA. The obvious fact which you already know is that they are downtown -They have a lot of amenities in the building that I probably should be taking more advantage of like the gym, rooftop deck, laundry services, mini-mart etcs -They have a study area! (Trust me, I was excited because my previous apartment did not have that....I still liked my previous apartment though) -The views from the rooftop deck are amazing and the apartment will always try to put together some social events to bring the community together which I believe is such a good thing to do -They are very quick in responding to any issues you may have. Whatever it may do, they are willing to do everything in their power to make sure that your stay is comfortable. -For Coffee lovers, cry no more. Left Bank at K station has coffee in the morning for you all. You can literally grab it on your way to work and you get this opportunity to meet so many people. They make an effort in fostering community! -What probably sold me when I moved in was the wide kitchen and bathroom for my apartment. I was very impressed by that because most apartments don't think of proportions when they build them so they assume that people who want studios or convertibles do not need wider kitchens. -There is an In-Unit Washer and Dryer (Hallelujah! So useful..so useful. It is awesome) It is a really great place to live. I would recommend stepping out by faith and moving forward with them. You just might like what you see :)
I had been looking for a new home in the West Loop but had difficulty finding something appropriate in my price range. I contacted Left Bank and spoke with Halli Smith. She has been nothing short of incredible! She is ultra professional, caring and a pleasure to work with. My new home is incredible and I have already started meeting my new neighbors. I highly recommend Left Bank at K Station!
Quite possibly the best building management I've ever had the experience to work with. Always attentive, they own any situations from start to finish, and go above and beyond what could reasonably be expected.
I first moved into left bank in 2008. A couple of years later I moved out believing I could get a better place, only to discover what I'm about to tell you and move right back in after a year and a half. Left Bank is BY FAR the best value for your money you'll get in Downtown Chicago. I could literally type a 5 page essay explaining all the reasons this place is awesome, but I'll keep it simple. Great neighborhood, Excellent apartments, IMPECCABLY maintained building...EXCELLENT staff...and I mean EVERY.LAST.ONE. The ONLY reason I moved out is because I left Chicago, but you can bet your bottom dollar if/when I move back, Left bank will be my first stop.
I was introduced to Leftbank by a friend that lived here for 6 years herself, I was amazed by how much sq footage you get compared to other buildings nearby. Overall building is quiet and conveniently located near River North and West loop area - close to EastBank club and walking distance to the loop. Beautiful views and friendly staff that would do help with anything.
It is an amazing building to be living in. No problems at all.
Very happy with our two years spent at this property thus far. The building has been safe, clean, and the staff have been very friendly and professional. The location of the complex is in a very convenient location downtown for work, dinning, and activities around the city. I highly recommend this complex to anyone who desires to live downtown and to live in a safe, friendly community.
Its a great place to live, location, area and everything is perfect
I strongly recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a safe, friendly place in downtown.
The location is perfectly positioned for great views of the river and city as well as walking distance to the best neighborhoods and attractions. Public transportation is abundant with Metra, bus routes, and Divy bike rentals all within a few blocks. Large onsite gym, rooftop deck, pool, and community rooms adds to the convenience and comfort level. Best of all the entire staff is sincere and eager to help. Rent includes most utilities including internet, gas, water, and central HVAC. Views on the river side are some of the best in the city and the balconies offer ideal city watching vantage points.
The staff is incredibly helpful, the leasing office and its employees care more about the tenants than money which is a breath of fresh air. Will definitely be renewing and have already suggested Left Bank to friends.
I have loved every minute at Left Bank at K Station I have never had any issues and anytime I had a maintenance or other issue of any kind, it was promptly attended to by the proper person. The door staff are always friendly and welcoming and the leasing agents are always helpful. I this Left Bank a full 5 stars, because living here has been a pleasure My only complaint, if I had to name one, would be that when we toured Left Bank about 14 months ago, we were told that the common areas on the second floor were going to be remodeled and that the remodeling was supposed to start with a month or two. There hasn't been any progress on this front since we moved in. So that was kind of a bummer. But other than that, Left Bank has been a great place to call home.
