Aqua Tower Reviews & Ratings
Great experience, always enjoyed living here. Would like to move back one day!
Living in the Aqua has exceeded my expectations - all of the amenities are top notch and the staff is incredibly professional and reliable. The view from my apartment is fantastic but the best part is the location! The Lakeshore East neighborhood is truly a hidden gem in Chicago - the Aqua is right on the pedway and a very short walk to Michigan Ave., Grant Park, the Lakefront, or Streeterville, yet tucked off a stunningly beautiful park that gives the area a real sense of community. I feel like I hit the jackpot living in the Aqua!
This is an absolutely phenomenal building! My wife and I lived on the 29th floor for about two years and only moved out because of a job opportunity in a different state. We were so sad to leave the Aqua!! Please note that the hotel is the first ~20 floors are the hotel, the next ~30 floors are the Aqua rentals, and the top ~30 floors are individually owned condominiums. The amenities are shared and are so huge and unbelievable. I can’t recommend this building enough. The staff (everyone from the doormen, the maintenance people, and the office staff) are very kind and helpful.
Hannah Thomas, the director and her team is an awesome group of people who works seamlessly helping me and my daughter and one of the current residents to close a sublease in super nice and synchronized manner that I felt is hard to achieve with such a large resident population in a very busy time in summer! All I can say is THANK YOU ALL for helping someone like us to go through the process smoothly! Very impressive!
Impressed with the service we received at Aqua Living Factory. We had many options to choose from the prices were great, the features on the spa are great really love relaxing after a long work week. We have enjoyed the company of family and friends highly recommend this product.
