Iâve been living in 5th Avenue Station for almost 6 months. When I was searching for apartments in Naperville I was particularly looking for a place thatâs caters to me and my two children. We wanted to be closer to Downtown Naperville to have easy access to the childrenâs museum, parks and to be part of the Naperville 203 school district. We love living in Naperville. Itâs a great diverse city filled with friendly people.
A little background about 5th Avenue station building, itâs part of historic district. If you ever get a chance to take a tour- PLEASE DO. The building is very unique and beautiful. My daughter loves the exposed brick and the building does offers renovated options. The building also has a movie room, gym and bbq area. The parking lot in the back of the building has new pavement and I never encountered an issue with parking ( a lot of parking spaces).The location is also prefect because the train station is right behind the building. You can have easy and fast access to Downtown Chicago. Donât worry about the noise because we can never hear the trains passing by.
Also, I got to know the staff very well. The maintenance ( Craig and Kyle) and-custodial staff are very nice. We always see each other in the hallways and seem very happy to greet us. Overall, very professional staff.
The building Manager is Haley Forbes. Iâve had many conversations with Haley. They have always been very pleasant. I love how she tryâs to get to know every resident. She defiantly created a close community within the residency. Every month, she host events that many residents like myself love to be part of.
Overall,these past months, Iâve seen more families move in. Itâs a beautiful thing to see more families seeking out the city-like living.(**The majority of people who live here are students, working professionals or retirees). Who are all very friendly people.
Lastly, the building does have business that take up the first floor. Thatâs my only criticism about the building. The business below has complained about my son making too much noise. Before moving in, I did make sure that I was placed in the lowest floor due to my sons physical and developmental disability. I did not want disturb any of residential neighbors. He does fall a lot and at times has trouble walking. I try to explain that to the business below. I think the building will do better if it was just catered to residential lofts. I do want to note even with this problem, Haley still did a great job to make sure we were all working together to fix this issue. I do believe if you ever encounter an issue itâs all about communication.
I hope to enjoy many more months in this beautiful building. :)
