The Flamingo advertised itself as a "Safe and easy lifestyle" They influenced people's decision to rent by advertising these services in the Flamingo Brochure, the Resident Guide, the Orientation Letter, the Flamingo website and on several other websites. These services directly affected tenant's decisions to live in this building and the amount of rent they would pay.TLC Management took away services, including 24/7 maintenance and 24/7 security, that were part of tenant's rental agreements. Say NO to the unfair business practices of TLC Management.

Don't plan on finding any parking after 5:30PM. Don't be fooled by the Chicago Park Distict's huge parking lot across the street; those are all taken as well. Noise from Bar Louie's patrons has become a huge issue/annoyance within the past 6 months or so. Am woken up quite often by the police on their car's loud speaker telling people to leave after the bar has closed. Cars blare their music outside the bar at night, and motorcycles engines can be heard often during the summer hours. Plan on getting an air conditioner to drown out the noise during the summer months.

I lived here for 1 1/2 years while in graduate school in Chicago. The location, proximity to public transportation and friendly staff make this place a must see. I loved having a 24 hour doorman, ample storage for bikes, and a workout and laundry facility on site. There was a change in management during my time, and while the level of service is still the same, they are a bit more stringent than before. They were always timely in responding to any issues and maintenance problems. My biggest issue was how long/loud it was when they were updating nearby apartments. They seldom gave notice and it was very difficult to live through. Could last up to 7 days at a time (excluding weekends). Other than that, I would highly recommend the Flamingo Apartments. Elizabeth and Ben are the best!

I've been very happy in my two years living at Flamingo-on-the-Lake Apartments. The management staff, especially Julie Brown, are tremendously competent and engaged. All of the services I've requested--minor repairs, exterminator, etc.--have been completed incredibly quickly and well. The building is very well maintained and it's clear that they put a lot of care into it. Also, the pool is a great perk in the summer.
