Great location, spacious, friendly staff
Chestnut Tower is a great building in a great location. The apartments are enormous compared to what you'll get in any other building downtown at similar prices. The views are absolutely fantastic and I find that the current construction adds depth and perspective to the view. The building amenities, while on the small side, are high quality. Bluetooth stereo access to play music directly from your phone, etc. The rooftop was recently renovated, new lobby, new coffee machine (which grinds fresh coffee). There are a number of new and exciting restaurants/bars in the area from Tippling Hall and Franklin Room to Headquarters Beercade. Easy access to both the Red and Brown/Purple lines is a big plus. The staff at the building are absolutely fantastic. Everyone from the doormen to the janitors to the maintenance people are super friendly. The only downside is that there is a bit of tension between dog owners that could be alleviated by allowing for specific off-leash hours in the enormous dog park. Compared with other buildings we looked at, the people that live at Chestnut are generally more down to earth and friendly.
