I recently moved here, a few months ago. I like very much that the building is very clean and they are really helpful with everything we need. It is so great that we are close to everything and the area seems pretty nice. There are a few things that seem pretty difficult for us to live with. So I took two stars because of the noise. Nobody told us in the beginning anything about this, we received only the good information. Regarding the noise, the building seems cheap build and every Tuesday morning at 5 when the garbage trucks come, it is a nightmare. Besides that, we can hear even when our neighbors talk, so you can imagine all the other noises.
Other thing is the heating system, it is not possible to se the temparature in the apartment, either is on or off. So if the radiator is turned off, it suddenly gets cold so it always has to stay on.
I wish we knew about this things before, but nobody told us anything about this.
This place is fine. My SO and I moved here from out of state, and the Linden was one of the easier places to apply to sight unseen. It's a very small apartment, especially for two people and two dogs. The main issue I have with Linden is that there is often dog excrement in the hallways and the dog relief station. It seems as if management doesn't make sure that the residents clean up after their pups. The winter was especially bad, and I was very concerned that my dogs would get sick. There are definitely better, more budget friendly options for the money.
Nearly everything has been great so far. The only difficulty I encountered was that the unit which I wanted was not the unit given to me which I believe was a mislabeling of the room number (which I assumed the management knew) during the initial application process.
The unit is nice, but it's clear there were cost cutting measures (like inexplicably no lighting in the bedrooms!). Also some weird design issues: the heaters are above the windows so as a 1st floor resident w/ empty construction zones below, we can't get our unit warm; we're effectively paying to heat our upstairs neighbors'; I think most of my dissatisfaction is what we were promised upon moving in: LEED certified building; kegerator for residents. Lovely neighbors, tho.
The building and residents are wonderful. However, we're still waiting for the completion of some the amenities that we've been paying for. Additionally, some of the selling points of the apartment have not been that satisfactory, including the "dog run," which we were told would be a much larger, off-leash area before the move in.
