Need to see the apartment, but the conversation with representative was very helpful in making this one of my choices..thank you
On everything, you do NOT want to move into this community; it's a far cry from anything resembling "luxury" living. The view was beautiful for sure. The maintenance folks and mini-mart owners were great, and that's where the niceties end. For example, you have to pay an extra $65/mo to park but you are not guaranteed a parking spot. Any visitors also have to pay for parking per hour.
You will have ZERO control of when you can turn on your heat or A/C; the complex decides each season. The system is so old, the thermostat literally reads "cooler" and "warmer", no numbers. The elevators JUST got running in the last few months after nearly 2 years. I also went WEEKS without hot water ALL multiple times, the toilet leaked and tub drains had to be replaced several times, and during the rainy season, the entry ways flood terribly. The hot tub often has dirty, foamy, disgusting water in it, the workout facility is very small compared to the size of the community, and the restaurant shut down months ago.
The worst part of the experience however, was/is the lack of response by management locally as well as corporately when presented with issues and concerns. They say they will call back and rarely do. When they do, some smile but then do nothing to resolve certain issues.
My tipping point happened just this past week. When I turned in my keys. I left NOTHING behind and thoroughly bleached and cleaned everything. I lived alone so there was literally no real damage to speak of outside of normal wear and tear. I received a letter late last
I had long wanted to live in Riverfront Tower ever since I was in High School. I had been away from Detroit for 13 years and was happy when I qualified to become a resident. When I first moved in I was so excited. The view was awesome and I had access to a pool, workout facility, and it was convenient to all of downtown. That joy was short lived.
The night before I was to move, I went to do a cursory assessment of where I wanted my furniture placed and I noticed the carpet had not been cleaned. I went back to my former place got my carpet cleaner and went to work. I mentioned to the staff that the caulking around the bathtub needed to be replaced because was stained with black mildew. After 3 months it was not done so, again, I did it myself.
The noise from the people mover screeching all day and all night was horrendous. I work remotely and would be asked to mute my phone during meetings and I lived on the 25th floor. I had to hear all the noise from ships on the river, people talking on the river walk, the demolition of Joe Louis, people walking through the halls talking loud, dogs barking all day. There were days when the fire alarm would go off, for no apparent reason. But all of this was petty in comparison to the "allocated cost".
I lived alone and was stunned when my supposed $1,865 monthly rent with water and gas included for 790 sq. ft. ranged from $1,986 to $2,103 averaging 2,074/month. I would rather you give me up front pricing that includes a realistic portion for shared expenses than allocating arbitrary cost to me for services over which I had no control.
The sign out front says first 30 minutes free, $1/hour up to a max of $10 for visitors. Not so, after the first 30 minutes, visitors pay $10. I would tell my friend to park on the street.
I would say more but I'm out of space...
SO HAPPY TO announce how
Wonderful your employee Pam
Is to the resident in helping us in anyway she can !
We want you to know of her generosity that goes beyond what she is required to do!
Thank you ever so much!
Bad management. Water leaking for 3 weeks, no response. Elevators NEVER WORK its been 4 years and still no fix so good luck if you live on a high floor and have to rush down 11 floors of stairs every morning or when getting groceries! Please dont sign a contract here!!!!
