Nicely decorated and peaceful
I was one of the first people to move into spectra two years ago. At first, I could get over the inconvenient location. My apartment cost way more than I expected to pay considering it's in hartford. Not related to the management at all, but as an aside my boyfriend's car was broken into when he stayed there one night. Just as an example. All things considered t wasn't bad. They have a 10% overdue fee and setting up automatic online payment would be nice except they charge a fee for that too. So either way it's unfriendly to the tenant. Nobody was allowed to come in or out without me coming down to physically get them after a certain time at night, 8/9pm if I remember correctly. For the apartment itself, I lived in a one bedroom and the kitchen was ok but badly designed. There were no drawers so I had to buy a kitchen island. In addition the 'wardrobe' they put in the bedroom was floor to ceiling with two shelves per side. Not normal shelves you can put multiple stacks of clothing on.
The worst was moving out though. I gave the appropriate 60 days notice. More in fact. And one day I happened to walk through the front of the building when I was stopped by someone in the management office informing me I needed to reserve the freight elevator which is only available 9am-5pm mon-fri or 9am-3pm Saturday. No availability sunday. I work 90+ hours a week as does my boyfriend who was going to help me move. We were both working that weekend. She told me ONE WEEK before I was scheduled to move out. I had no prior notice. I've lived in apartments my entire adult life anywhere from NYC to Washington, D.C. and I've never come across a management group or policy that is more unreasonable and unforgiving to their tenants. I finally firgured out a way to make it work and moved out. Now weeks later I get a check for half my security deposit because the cleaning I did in my apartment wasn't up to their standards. This may be a reasonable measure but at this point I'd had enough.
