It has been many years since we have lived in an apartment. We moved in near the end of January and the transition has been very easy. Harrison Towers Apartments is a great place to live. The location is super. HOWEVER, A KEY ASPECT IS THE FRIENDLINESS AND EFFICIENCY OF THE STAFF. Chris and his team are above par -very friendly and always available to help when needed. Response to any problem is taken care of promptly. The building is always kept clean. Nicole, Lisa & Gillian are very helpful and go out of their way to provide outstanding service, and are always friendly. We are very happy here and hope to stay awhile. Ellie & Hymie
I've been one of the first tenants in this building since it first reopened back in 2008. The current management company is the third and the best so far. The building is now going some remodeling to include better and nice features. Location is perfect, views are great and the quality of residents increased, as many students are moving to other buildings and hence things are getting better. For someone that likes convenience and urban living, I highly recommend the place!
We are a family of 4 who has lived at the Harrison for two years. Location is awesome the building has a wonderful mid century look and feel. It is Downtown and close to PSU which is convenient. The management seems to care and are always helpful. Because of the age of the building the apartments are nice size. We are a happy family living at the Harrison Tower.
After moving to Portland to start my career I had made a list of multiple locations to check out before picking my new apartment out. Needless to say after checking out Harrison Towers first, I knew it was pointless to go elsewhere. Aside from the beautiful view and quality of living, the place was by far the best option within my price range. Lisa and Jillian in the office made my moving and lease experience quite exciting. They maintain a very professional yet comfortable and personable environment and they are very efficient and proactive in answering any of my questions throughout the moving and continual renting process. I would recommend Harrison towers to anyone who wants to have an optimal renting and living experience.
Lived here for 1.5 years while working at Intel in Hillsboro. and only left because I was relocating out of Portland for a job. I think a lot of the reviewers here have unrealistic expectations, i.e. if you don't want noise in your home, then don't live in a dense packed apartment building downtown. That said, despite the fact that my neighbors (college kids) would play music loudly, as you can tell from the hallway, the walls are dense concrete and basically block all noise inside your apartment itself. Hearing some music in the hall isn't a big deal, and my place was always quiet inside. Location is incredible, near the river, walkable pretty much anywhere downtown, right off the street car, and very close to the big farmer's market on Saturdays. My view from the 21st floor was also incredible of the west hills, and I imagine that facing east is even better. Apartment is clean and well kept up, especially considering the building's age. Management was always quick and helpful. I was working a job that at one point had me out of my apartment and out of downtown 10 hours a day 7 days a week (all hours the office was open), and the staff was accommodating enough to bring packages up to my apartment during the day. My only issue was the smoke. Everyone here seems to smoke, and on their balconies, which made it sometimes difficult to have windows open to enjoy the incredible climate Portland has. However, in my experience this can be an issue in any apartment building and is kind of a crap shoot on who you live next to. Overall I would highly recommend this building to young professionals, or PSU students that can somehow afford it. Families might want to be wary of downtown Portland, but if you are set on it this neighborhood is about the safest you're going to get and furthest from the bums (which are ubiquitous downtown).
