Ive lived here for months but I have chosen to not live here again. Id much rather pay the same price and live closer to the city. There are a number of benefits including the view of the Potomac and ease of getting into the city...but thats about it. The rent is over priced for the quality of apartment. Your walls are paper thin. I am currently listening to my neighbors television on one side of my apartment and my other neighbor on the phone. The elevators are constantly broken or stopping and opening about six inches above the floor (seriously watch your step). Sometimes I wish the people who worked here would give a little bit more effort in pronouncing residents names or even introducing themselves. If you live here during the winter be prepared for super warm apartments (you have no control). The water is also boiling hot. Also the hardwood floors in the apartments are a major disappointment. Finally dont call the bathrooms updated when the white paint over the tiles literally peels off showing the blue tiles. By far my biggest disappointment in living situations since moving to the try looking across the street at the newly constructed Thorton buildings or even at the renovated Riverside apartments you are literally just paying for an Old Town Zip code here not anything near high quality.
Bottom Line Up Front: DO NOT MOVE HERE. I HAVE BEEN TOWED TWICE THIS PAST WEEK EVEN THOUGH I PAY TOO MUCH MONEY TO LIVE HERE. If I could give Bridgeyard 0 stars I would. And I am not the first person to say that. While I have been very happy living here for the past two years, my opinion has changed just as dramatically as the constant parking policy changes. First of all, when the policies change, not everyone is notified. AND THE LEASING OFFICE HAS ADMITTED THIS TO MY FACE. How do you expect to enforce a policy without notification? It is entirely unprofessional and disrespectful to the residents who are paying too much money to live here. My sister visited me on short notice last weekend when the wind storm hit. She was en route to my parents' home, but stopped here because the roads were getting dangerous with traffic signals out, debris in the streets, etc. The leasing office has apparently decided that SOME, NOT ALL, visitor spots require a visitors parking permit to park here. She got in from the storm at 9pm and parked her car in a visitor spot that required a pass because all of the visitor spots that do not require a pass were full already. According to our receipt, her car was towed at 10:47pm during the wind storm... when the city of Alexandria recommended everyone who could stay off the streets, do so. It is infuriating that in an emergency situation, my sister had to pay over $200 to retrieve her car from the towing company out in the boonies when she was parked in a spot clearly marked for visitors. I was not made aware of this change until we went to the leasing office to figure out where her car was towed. And the leasing office told me they KNOW FOR A FACT that the notifications are not going to everyone. This is completely unacceptable and unprofessional on several levels. If this is not enough to convince you not to live here, you should hear the story about how MY OWN CAR WAS TOWED OVER NIGHT HERE LAST NIGHT. MY OWN CAR. AT HOME. WHERE I PAY TO
3 Days NO HEAT,, 1st day No Heat No Hot Water all day,, We have put in tickets for maintenance and still nothing , had to run out to buy a space heater .
I've been in my apartment for several months now. Needless to say, I won't be renewing.
For starters, laundry. A) the machines/dryers aren't great (I had better in college a decade ago) and B) you have to use a card that you have to top up in cash (with $10 or $20... I've never been able to use a $5 or $1). First of all... why can't Laramar move into the future and use a company where you can pay by card or top up online??? It's also 1.75 per wash and 1.75 per dry. The sole front loading machine is always covered in animal hair which is a shame.
Second, ants. I have complained about ants in my apartment, and it still hasn't been resolved. I'm not a dirty person (my kitchen is sparkling), but it's a pain.
Third, the staff. There is one nice person in the office, the others are always rude (for no reason). Like, I'm sorry I had a question. Geeze!
Fourth, elevators. They just need to replace them. One of the elevators in my building breaks on a consistent basis (as in 1-4 weeks out of use), and I'm not sure how safe either are (both have gotten to my floor before and the doors failed to open and they took me back to the basement floor).
Fifth, square footage. It sucks. There are better places with more space elsewhere in Old Town or Alexandria.
Sixth, closet space and storage. The closet (at least in mine) is useless. There's not enough pantry space (and some of the cabinents are hard to reach even with a step stool if you are short).
Seventh, bathroom. The only storage is a medicine cabinet. I can already see the paint starting to bubble up in my "newly renovated" bathroom because there is no circulation.
Eighth, heating and cooling. The AC unit is in the wall and mine doesn't always blast cold air. It's also extremely noisy. The heat is controlled by the building and it's absolutely sweltering. I am not looking forward to the heat coming back on.
The place gets 2 stars because it's close to my work. Go elsewhere if you have a choice.
The rent so low because people is constantly moving out. Highway & huge cemetery is right next to apartment. You cannot see the noise and vibration of the bldg. while looking at "beautiful photo", very misleading. DO NOT MOVE HERE.
