Concierge staff is great (although they lost my key -- twice -- when it was left at the desk for my dog walker). Most residents seem nice but heaven help you if you have a noisy neighbor. I have been sujected to around-the-clock door slamming from across the hall. Door is sammed all day/evening/night long, sometimes 6-10 times in rapid succession, yelling into hallway. Leasing/management staff "apologized" but did nothing to address the noise resulting in disrupted sleep every night. (It is temp corporate housing at $3300/mo for studio.) Late one night, my dog put his nose to the bottom of the door and growled. It woke me so I got up and looked through the peephole. She was just standing in front of my door! It really creeped me out... why was she just standing there at 2:45 a.m?! The door slamming is totally avoidable and unnecessary. When I brought it to the attention of the leasing office, the response was "she's a smoker." Huh?! First, it's a smoke-free building. Second, what does that have to do with slamming a door? Their "solution" was to suggest I move to a new unit that will be available a month from now. (I'm still missing mail because they told me before I arrived that I'd be in a particular apartment number, so submitted a USPS forwarding order for that apartment. When I arrived, I was told "oops, that's a mistake" and I was put across from whackadoodle.) Now, a few days before Thanksgiving, they've offered me the option to move all my belongings -- again -- to a another unit in a few weeks. Why won't they just tell her to stop slamming the door?
I was planning to reside in this building in a larger unit on a different floor, but I nixed that due to the staff's unresponsiveness to excessive/disruptive noise. Why would I want to live where no one cares about my right to peaceful enjoyment of my home. Renter beware!!!
