2100 W Ainslie Apartments now managed by Apartments Management Group

My girlfriend and I recently signed a lease for an apartment in the 2100 W Ainslie St. building. During another walkthrough of the unit today we saw the notice that management would be transferred from Tricap to the Apartments Management Group (which neither the realtor at Dwell nor Tricap Mgmt told us was happening during lease signing)

Here's a brief summary of AMG:

Given our research about this company, we are quite concerned of all the horror stories about AMG. Anyone in 2100 W Ainslie (or anyone else who's dealt with AMG) had issues with them? Our lease doesn't start until June 15, and we are really considering looking elsewhere. Any feedback about AMG, or the apartments themselves at 2100 W Ainslie would be greatly appreciated.

    So, we live in this building and re-signed our lease about a month ago with Tricap and were just informed of the change this past week... honestly, we thought we'd have a ton of issues with Tricap, as when we moved in we had so many issues from the start, but over the year, things calmed down and that's why we ultimately re-signed. All I can say is it's a great block to live and having the park so close is perfect for our dog. Let's just hope to get by unscathed by this company....

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    I wish the tenants the best of luck.
