Ive lived in lots of apartment buildings and am fine with some noise transfer but Ive never experienced it this bad. I would wake up to neighbors alarms, hear every conversation word for word, if the people above/next to you dont feel like sleeping, trust me you wont either. We couldnt even watch a movie if our neighbors TV was on because the sounds would compete. Lots of college kids too so lots of parties regardless of quiet hours. Couldnt even work from home because neighbors conversations could be heard via Skype meetings. It got so bad we decided to end our lease. Unfortunate because everything else about the place is so great but if youre on the fence thinking well every apartment is noisy, this level pretty much ruined the experience.
The walls are paper thin and you can hear every conversation and step your neighbors take. Its not a peaceful apartment at all with this issue. My sleep is constantly ruined. Its a shame because the space its self is beautiful. Management knows about the issue and does not do anything about it.
We have had such an Amazing experience with Chimney Hill's Leasing agent. She has been very responsive and has accommodated us in every way!
We cannot wait to live at these beautiful Lofts in August.
Scheduled a showing for a week in advance due to rules surrounding giving notice to current tenants. Was promised that the unit wouldnt be leased in that time. Called to confirm the morning of the tour, and the woman who answered claimed there was no tour on the calendar for that day and the unit had been leased. Dont waste your time with this place.
Overall the lofts are a great place to live. Its an absolute shame the walls are so painfully thin that it nearly ruins the living experience... Every morning I hear the tenant above me rolling around in bed. When he walks around little specs of drywall and dust sprinkle down everywhere covering my bed. I can hear a normal talking voices at almost any time of the day throughout the apartment. I'm still confused how its possible I can hear my neighbor flipping through snapchats on her phone through the wall. Management is well aware of this problem as they require tenants to carpet the hardwood floor to absorb as much sound as possible. What is so unfortunate is almost everything else is so great. The units have huge beautiful windows, hardwood floors, exposed brick, free parking, in an awesome location, and are fairly priced. Its astonishing how they did such a great job with 95% of the experience but did so awfully in making even decently made walls
