Review

Beautiful apartments. Great neighbors. Electric bills are ridiculous high in winter due to no window insulation.

great space to live

This is an amazing apartment and artist community. The apartments are spacious, comfortable and thoughtfully designed. CHI did a good job of keeping the integrity of the school intact while also creating beautiful living spaces, I am lucky to have the original oak book & supply cupboards for storage. In suite laundry, free WiFi and a studio just down the hallway is definitely a plus. Only negatives I have are: The shared studios are rather small and limiting. The management is pretty restrictive as to the media and equipment allowed; no kilns or torches. I would be leery to use media that is solvent dependent as the ventilation is definitely not adequate. Utilities are pretty decent but winter in a concrete building with large window means pretty high utilities. We do not have access to the gym which would make a great venue for shows both visual and performance based. Could become a meeting hub for creatives. But alas...it remains locked and unused.
