Its a little too expensive for what it is, too cookie cutter to charge the prices they do.

Staff = Friendly and Prompt No issues Main gripe is with the cable // internet. I wish there was more flexibility and that information wasn't fully disclosed prior to signature.

Thank you for your four-star review of Whetstone Apartments! It's great to hear that your time with us and your interactions with our team have been enjoyable, as we strive to provide residents with exceptional service. We apologize for any miscommunication regarding our cable provider. If you have any questions about it, please don't hesitate to ask in our leasing office. Thanks again.

Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely place to live, in a convenient location. However, I feel like the amount I pay in rent is not necessarily met with value in kind. Furthermore, be warned that it can be VERY difficult if you live in an apartment that is on the side of the building with the bus station -- the bright lights stay on until 2 in the morning, and the buses are louder than you might think!

Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear that your experience at Whetstone Apartments has been overall enjoyable. That said, we're sorry that you have concerns regarding rent. We understand that rent rates can be a cause for frustration, but we want to assure you that our prices accurately reflect the current market. Furthermore, if you're having issues with your home's proximity to the bus station, please let us know in the office and we will look into a possible transfer if you'd like.

Everything was great until Tri-Bridge bought out the complex. The staff, cleanliness and management went downhill quickly. The apt social events went from weekly to quarterly (at most). Mainance request were never done in a timely manner if ever completed. We didn't have AC for the last few months (durning the summer) because Tri-Bridge didn't want to pay for 3rd party repairs without a warranty. There was also a parking deck fiasco that resulted in us parking away from the building in winter.

We're disappointed to hear that you're unsatisfied with your current living situation, especially because our team works hard to provide residents with a great place to call home. Furthermore, we strive to resolve all maintenance requests in a timely manner, though some work orders might take longer to fulfill than others. We'd love the opportunity to make your experience as pleasant as possible, so please stop by the office at your earliest convenience. Thank you.
