It's reasonably priced, provided you don't want that many amenities. The staff is marginally competent with consistent follow up on your part, especially when something breaks which is a virtual certainty because no real preventative measures are ever taken . Good for a bit. Not too long though.
So far, I am dissatisfied with the apartment unit and the management. I have been here since November 2016. There have been a number of issues.
One of the main issue is with the elevator which is usually broken so I had to wait more than 5 mins, occasionally take the stairs to 12th floor. Even with several report, the management doesn't look concerned or attempt to resolve the issue.
The management lacks being prompt, responsive, and friendly. After signing the lease I had to go back to the lease office several times to get other services such as garage parking permits. I had leave early from work more than 5 to 6 times to get it done. Every time I went to the office, I was getting the same answer like the manager wasn't there comeback tomorrow or next Monday.... . The whole process took more than a month. I just wish more of the BASICS had been taken care of by the management quickly.... wish they were more responsive for questions and other issues.
In general, the maintenance issues except the elevators seem to be resolved quickly within two to three days, but some maintenances marked completed without getting the issue resolved at all. I called the office with maintenance request at the end of March 2017, but there was no response or follow-up from their maintenance team. So I re-entered the request online in May 2017. But still the issue hadn't been resolved. In June 2017, I went online to see the status, the work order was marked completed and closed. It was very disappointing to see a simple maintenance issue dragging more than 3 months without getting resolved.
In order to use weight I have to go to the other building. in building 200 there is only one tread mail, one stationary bicycle and one elliptical and the room much bigger than the others also the TV's in the GYM been broken at least since I moved in from DEC 2016
Nothing it's horrible
It's good and convenient place to live
