Thank you for reaching out! Our leasing team would love to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to get in contact with us directly at (844) 379-6170. Sincerely, The FowlerJanuary 25, 2021

The only good thing about this place is the location, and the only thing luxury is the price. Dogs (and dog mess), partiers (from college kids, StayAlfred, etc.), police (about once a month), and incompetent management await you. They often overcharge for things, and maintenance takes forever. It's an entirely subpar place to live other than the convenience of being downtown.

Where do I start, from the disgusting floors and poor management I would never recommend this Airbnb knock off filled apartment complex. The multitude of people coming in and out from Stay Alfred leaves messes, noise, and a hotel feeling like apartment complex. Almost all of the renters feel like they have been duped with the luxury price they are paying due to the hotel/college like atmosphere. In addition they do not vet any of the animals so constant dog barking and pee spots litter the halls. If you are looking for a luxury apartment, steer clear from this poorly built and uncleanly building for with this quality you should be paying half what they want.

Good morning, <BR><BR>We're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience as a resident at The Fowler. We appreciate your feedback. <BR><BR> While we do have a professional cleaning company scheduled biweekly for our common areas, we would love to know if there were any areas of concern you noticed that we may have missed. For any residents with issues regarding noise either from residents, guests, or pets, we do have an after hours courtesy patrol that you can reach out to in the evenings while our office is closed. Our office will reach out to any applicable parties in accordance with community policy during business hours. We understand that barking dogs or loud neighbors can be frustrating, and we'd love the opportunity to address that issue should it arise.<BR><BR>Again, we're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience here, and we would be happy to speak with you regarding any questions or concerns mentioned in this review. <BR><BR>Thank you, <BR><BR>The Fowler ManagementJune 25, 2019

These apartments are listed as "luxury", but that is not what you get. Poorly designed with no sound proofing. You can hear everything people are talking about inside their unit when speaking at a reasonable voice from the hallways and other units. It is also pet friendly which is a benefit, however you can hear dogs barking/howling 24/7 and nothing is done about it. There is no fan in the bathroom and little to no storage space. The office states they are open from 10-6 during the weeks but numerous times I have attempted to stop by to get my packages during the middle of the day only to find them gone for hours at a time on multiple occasions. The location is the only good thing about this building. Over priced for what you get. Additionally, the number of units that are Stay Alfred or Airbnb make this feel more like a hotel than an actual residence.

We love that we are a pet friendly building, but understand that it does come with its challenges. Please let us know if there is a specific apartment or area that you would like us to reach out to and we would be happy to do so. <BR><BR>We offer a variety of layouts that vary is configuration and storage space. If you are needing a bit of extra room to store items, we do offer additional storage units if you feel that may be a good solution for you! <BR><BR>We also offer a Parcel Pending system at no cost to residents as a way to retrieve packages at any time with a code sent directly to you. We apologize if you've stopped by and we weren't there! If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our leasing office directly. We'd be happy to help!<BR><BR>Regards, <BR><BR>The Fowler ManagementJanuary 30, 2019
