I like to live here! The staff is very friendly, the maintenance service is excellent, the common areas are clean, it has very good ammenities (pool, gym, tenis and raquetball courts, pool table, grocery store), the view to the bay is beautiful, and there is no risk that a new building will cover it. Last but not least it's a smoke free building and for the people that don't smoke is perfect.

The building and amenities are very nice, and everything is kept organized. The building is in a great location where we don't have to deal with a lot of traffic which is great, especially for Brickell! However the management office rarely answers phone calls and takes a very long time to respond, and sometimes doesn't respond at all which can be very agitating.

Easy means of monthly rent payments, convenient location, and responsive representatives make this, service-wise, one of the better experiences insofar as apartments. As far as the facilities go, you have the usuals––pool, gym, jacuzzi, etc.––all of which are nice; however, what really won me over was the business facilities, which have allowed me to get work done away from the office.

Good: Right on the water. Large apartments. Great maintenance staff. Good neighbors. Bad: Very old appliances. EXTREME construction noise. 24 hour skyscraper construction permit across the street, and concrete breaking going on for 9-10 hours a day next door. Rent rising by about $180 each year. Charge you about $65 a month on top of quoted rent for building electricity, sewer, trash, and a billing fee. Charge you $10 tax for the $125 second parking spot. The service door to the garage lets people squeeze by when locked. Move out: They charge you $140-$200 to repaint no matter what. Which is strange because it doesn't look like the place was painted when I moved in. They charge you to replace old, cracked appliances that work perfectly well. Too bad we missed the minuscule crack upon move-in. (Apparently all the older microwaves had the same tiny stress related crack on the door which did not affect functioning. Since the model was so old that parts were no longer sold, they decided that a completely new microwave would have to be bought. And upon move-out charged us $279 to upgrade their old microwave.) Charged us to clean the apartment after we spent 5 hours cleaning. You will lose most of your $1000 security deposit. Summary: Could be a nice building since it is on the water and the people living there are nice. However, the current construction noise makes it unbearable to live there. Plan on paying for a professional deep clean and repaint upon move out. Go over everything with a fine-tooth comb when you move in and document with pictures. Edit: removed the microwave charge and reduced the painting charge after a complaint. Apparently you need a professional deep-clean upon move out, although no one told us that. (Maybe it was in the huge move-out packet? I didn't see it there.)

Look, you are on the water overlooking Key Biscayne. There are like 2 other properties in the heart of Brickell that also offer it. This is all about location, location, location, and the Yacht Club is prime!! The gym, the pool deck, the marketplace are all awesome. It's sick that we don't have to leave the building to get pretty much anything (Wine, eggs, milk, pregnancy tests, etc). I love living here! If you don't like construction, then don't live in an up-and-coming city. That has nothing to do with the yacht club. Also, people are generally friendly and happy here, which is nice! I love living here!
