Residents of 339 W. Barry Avenue are drawn to its location
for many reasons. Here are some we collected:
§ "It's one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country; there's something for everyone."
§ "It’s actually a real ‘walk around,’ tree-lined neighborhood. You can stroll to dozens of restaurants, bars, and supermarkets."
§ "With kids in our family, we were relieved to know there are great schools in the neighborhood. Plus there's a neat playground just across the street."
§ "It's really nice to have the park and lake at our doorstep."
§ "What do I love most? Maybe the miles of bike and jogging paths."
§ "People are just so friendly around here.”
§ "Don't want to drive there? Four different bus-lines stop right at the corner,
all day and night."
§ “To us, the balcony really adds another ‘room’ and expands the living space.”
§ ”Our family enjoys barbecuing, sitting in the morning sun with a café latte, or getting
a tan while watching the joggers and bikers.”
§ “It’s great to watch the sailboats on the lake or use binoculars to check for
freighters on the horizon.”
§ “We love our flower boxes, gives us a feeling of our own private patio.”
§ “Great place to grow my herbs and tomatoes.”
§ “I can take my twenty minutes of daily sun whenever I want to without having
to look fashionable.”
§ “It’s great to have several major supermarkets in the neighborhood. We are real happy
with the new Trader Joe’s and look forward to a new supermarket taking the place of the former nearby Dominicks.”
§ “Since there are only two or three units on each floor, it gives us a lot more privacy plus
good elevator service.”
§ “For a high-rise, it’s surprisingly quiet since there is solid horizontal concrete between units.”
§ "There is very little common wall-space shared with the neighbor, which makes for a very
quiet building and a good night’s sleep.”
§ “The clean, timeless glass and steel construction, designed by local architects Robert Fridstein and Marvin Fitch - who also designed well known Chicago buildings 3110 N. Sheridan and 5200 S. Cornell Tower - reminds us of well known Chicago designs by Mies van der Rohe.”
§ “Nothing tops the convenience of a self-parking garage with bicycle storage for us."
§ “Our family likes the annual summer and winter holiday parties. Gives us a great chance to get to know our neighbors.”
§ “We love the small-community feel of our building. Everyone is friendly and easy to get along with.”
