The First National staff is responsive and helpful - replying almost immediately to any concerns or maintenance requests. Best of all - as it was an old bank building the walls between apartments are practically sound proof - I haven't had any issues with neighbors noise.
Leasing office and maintenance staff never fail to meet expectations. I have not encountered any issue over the past 10 months of stay in First national apartments. Parking and gym facilities are a plus. Downtown location near the State Capitol park and James river is a great stress buster.
The building is beautiful and well-maintained. The staff is caring, courteous, and very responsive. Mail and packages are handled promptly and with care. I'm centrally located to work. All in all, I'm very happy to live in the First National Apartments!
Government employees be ware! The building is pretty nice. It is old and lacks a lot of the amenities of new apartments. I have had a leak in the ceiling of my bathroom that hasn't been fixed in 4 months, and it is a little over priced but not a bad location. The warning and poor review really center on the fact that if you are a government employee and subject to last minute moves, First National will not work with you in anyway. I would suggest government and military members look for more reasonable accommodations unless you want to be left with a large bill on PCS.
Over the past few years I've seen the management of this property quickly decline. The new manager, while always nice, lacks the ability to manage the building. Cleaning supplies in the workout room are always out and more recently the garbage has been backed up in the trash chutes and now overflowing in each chute room for over two weeks. The smell and flying insects are disgusting. Management continues to indicate it's being taken care of, but it's now been two weeks, and a week prior to that there was a back up too, and we continue living in a trash dump, not the "luxury apartment living" it once was, and continues to be promoted as. The prior manager, you'd always find roaming the building and was very responsive to issues on the property. I can count on one finger the number of times I've seen the current manager around the building, and with that one can anticipate a decline in the property. For the amount of money we pay in rent, the stature of the property itself, one expects a certain level of service.
