I can't rate them zero stars, so I have to put one star but that's giving them too much credit.
Since day one of subleasing from this company I had a terrible vibe from them. I ended up signing a year lease once my sublease contract was ending and I had just moved in the month before. I never received a new written copy of the lease which I found very odd. A month or so later, after asking twice via phone and email and being told "we'll have it right to you", I went in person and wouldn't you know it, they didn't even have an updated lease for me on file and I had already been there for 2 months on my own lease. Very odd and off-putting since i'm giving these people a lot of money each month.
Next, since I was subleasing for a month I ended up just venmoing the previous tenant money until I went on my own lease the following month. Wellllll even up to 4 months after I was for my own lease, they STILL had the previous tenant on the water bill. You got that right, I had been on my own lease for 4 months and they STILL never changed it until I refused to leave their office until I had proof it had been changed. Don't worry, I had went in every month before that to let them know to change the bill to my name and they clearly could never get it correct. Again, very disheartening.
Oh did I mention we didn't have water in the building on multiple occasions for days at a time. Don't worry, they gave us all 3 gallons of water just in case we needed to use the bathroom and drink anything.
Dont you dare ask them about fixing the call boxes! How dare anyone ask them to fix something that is broken on their property which they offer as an amenity. And don't let them fool you, the screens light up but they don't work.
Don't even get me started on the elevators. The buttons on the second floor stopped working at the end of February and they weren't fixed until I moved out at the end of May. Poor guy that lives in the building who has to walk with crutches always struggled.
Pool is the best part of the community experience. I think it would be cool to host some things in the community room like a Wednesday game night. Or a pool league. The community room under used. Need to fix get a new TV. I don't have a TV and used to go there to watch things once and a while. Bring back the ping pong table and fix the pool cues. Could be more fun. Use the news letter to allow people to give away stuff when moving.
Decent property! Amenities are nice!
I wanted to give this place a pass. I assumed people who posted about an apartment only wrote about the extremely bad or extremely good. Maybe the reviews were old? I decided to live here regardless of reviews.
But the leasing staff here is horrible. They are incompetent. They are unprofessional.
Soon rooms in the building are interesting. I liked mine. It has a great setup. However there is something in the room messing with my allergies. Had to get an air filter and humidifier because my nose would bleed nightly as I slept due to the ancient dust from when this was a stove factory. It still does sometimes... but at least its not on a nightly basis.
Ive never met my neighbors, but I feel like I know my neighbors neighbors! And its not because someone is shouting. My neighbors are very quiet. Its the walls that are paper thin.
Might have lost a few years of my life from living in the room itself.... definitely lost some years of my life dealing with the leasing office. Every time I had to deal with them was an issue. And not one instance should have been.
But hey... at least they are friendly. And some rooms look kind of cool. Good for train enthusiasts. Good for people who like firetrucks. Great for those that like ambulances!
The toilets work well. Very good flushing power. Probably the most functional thing here. The amenities are nice.
I wouldnt recommend living here. Also lived in Todds Loft across the street. Its alright, but Id stay clear of there also.
Giving this community 1 star is being generous. The staff puts on a smile when you walk in, but behind those smiles is nothing. The apartments look nice but were so cheaply made its laughable. 0 insulation in the apartments so expect very high electric bills. They advertise high speed Internet and cable included, well its a higher speed than when dial up first came out, but dont expect much more. And the cable, well if you want more than 3 channels that you can sometimes see clearly, budget to upgrade to satellite tv (your only option). The hallways always smell like pot, and when I complained about this to the office their response was always "well theres not much we can do." Like other reviews said, the noise is absurd between apartments. I lived here for two years and was woken up to late night activities of my neighbors more than I care to (good for them for getting some?). Our upstairs neighbors were rude and loud and the final straw for us. Loud at all hours of the night and the office couldnt care less, they were getting their rent!. When we first moved in the grounds were always well kept and clean, that ended about a year ago. The "secured" parking, was a gate that broke so often they just gave up on. Several cars were broken into in the parking lot, which of course no resident would know about since management was not helpful (noticing a trend?) and the only reason I knew about it was from seeing the police outside when I left to go to work. While on the topic of the parking lot, hope you are ready for dings and scratches! The spots are so small, you cant park in most of them and expect to be able to open your doors without hitting another car. Bottom line, get away. Don't be fooled by the nice pictures (that are years old). Don't let the fake reviews on here and other sites trick you. They no longer have a spot to share reviews on facebook (wonder why?). There are far better places to spend your money i
Overall good. Minor things: thin walls, loud morning vacuuming in the lobby, residents smoking near the building (when windows are open, it comes into the apartment)
