I love the History behind the building! Great price for the location. Sandwich City and The Hive are right next door. I can't wait to move in this New Year! We are excited that we can walk downtown for all of the festivals. Parking- A+ I will feel better parking inside the gate.
I really like the feel inside as well- you can tell they spent a lot of money on upgrades.
I like it very very very very very very much--
I'm so disappointed in the management, location, and the professionalism of this company. Besides being in a questionable area, the staff are like children. A repairman did the worlds worst repair in my ceiling and when I complained they made it seem like I was some sort of menace. I'm moving as soon as my lease is up.
Do not move to the Cobb House if you are a young professional like myself or a parent of a student looking for housing. There is a reason why apartments here are so affordable-- the building is in complete disrepair and is located in an extremely unsafe part of town. Management has failed to implement adequate security and repairs to make this property safe and comfortable for residents. Even upon entering the building, you'll notice that the hallways are dingy and unkempt which is an exact indication of how Intermark manages the property.
In the two years that I have lived at the Cobb House, my car broken into twice and my apartment was entered into by maintenance staff without my permission/notice countless of times. My belongings were rummaged through and pictures in my apartment were moved around. When I asked to see the surveillance footage from the camera in the hallways, staff reported that it was no longer available due to recent system upgrades. Secondly, the gate to the parking lot is constantly broken. Staff attributed the broken gate to residents using the emergency open button so they placed a lock on it. Unsurprisingly, the gate continues to be faulty (in fact, I could not get it to open this morning and was late to work), and now there is no way for emergency responders to enter the building should there be a fire or medical emergency.
In addition, my faulty HVAC caused my utility bills to be unusually elevated (averaged $121/month over two years). I lived by myself in an 800 square foot apartment with one television and no other additional electronics or appliances and kept the thermostat at 75-76 degrees all year long. My unit constantly leaked into the apartment below mine and caused significant water damage, however was still in perfect, working condition according to staff. Despite multiple maintenance requests, my safety and security issues did not get addressed until I notified staff that I was moving out.
The common areas of the building (entrance, stairwells) were not cleaned very often. I also had a difficult time getting in touch with management. When I moved out of Cobb House I explained that I was moving and my roommate would be staying. I am still waiting on paper work from them, and continue to receive the rent bill even though I have not lived there for 9 months.
