Default 3 flat in lincoln park

well, I guess i have a somewhat different perception of what is nice. To me, nice means having the following:

a 24 hr maintenance staff
within 4 blocks from Lake and Park
Stainless steel appliances
Granite Countertop
Marble Bath
Functional fire place
Balcony
hardwood flooring
high ceiling
Heated indoor garage parking that's kept at 75 degrees all year around

All these and more wrapped up in a new or new building in Lincoln Park.
Let me know if you can get something like that for 1600 for a two bedroom?

HA! Yes, we definitely have very different perceptions as what is "nice." I think your definition is beyond "nice" for most people!!!

His definition of nice is more like the definiton of luxury. Although it can be nice to live in luxury it certainly is not a requirement for most people nor is it that cost effective.

Well, someone with a budget of $3900 in another thread was looking for a nice apt. I guess his definition of nice is even more than mine because that money can get you a kick ass one or two bedroom apt in a prime location in LP. Just for giggles, I think that money will get you the following features in a building:

Door man
24 hr valet Parking
24 hr maintenance staff
24 hr complimentary starbucks coffee
Within 2 blocks of Lake and Park
Great view of Lake Michigan, or Lincoln Park, or City or all of the above
Stainless steel appliances (not GE crap, but Sub Zero or Wolf)
Built in wine cooler
3/4 inch Granite Countertop instead of the cheaper 1/2 inch one
Marble Bath with heated floor and rain shower
Marble fire place
>100 sf of balcony space
Maple hardwood flooring (we dont want the cheap oak one)
High ceiling at least 9.5 feet with track, sky and recess lighting
In building gym and pool
And more

To me nice would be in moderately good condition with newer (less than 10 years old) appliances and hopefully a dishwasher. Clean, recently regrouted bathroom. It would have hardwood floors and hopefully laundry available in the building.

My point? I agree that "Nice" is def. subjective, but I can't imagine it meaning "luxury"
