I came in and signed an application and a lease agreement the other day. After paying the initial deposit and signing all the contracts, I was told that, pending approval, everything would be good to go and ready for me to move in. A couple of hours later, I was emailed and told that the price is actually 300 more dollars and that to make up for their mistake they would "give me an extra week to move in." First of all, I'm not even sure that it's legal that you can change a price after the contract has been signed. But apparently, they were unwilling to budge and honor the price stated in the contract. I told them I shouldn't be penalized for a mistake they made, but they were unwilling to offer an acceptable solution. I'm sure this somehow goes against tenant's rights or fair housing laws, but we'll see. Secondly, it seems like a total scam that they attract you with a great price, show you the unit, have you sign up, and then raise the price after you're midway through. Maybe it was an honest mistake. But you know what, accept responsibility and don't punish the applicant/tenant. Luckily, I was able to get my full deposit back and cancel the whole process without being penalized. If I could give them 0 stars I would, but unfortunately you at least have to give 1 to leave a review. With this experience in mind, I definitely will not be visiting this apartment complex in the future, and I caution everyone else who plans to rent from these guys. This totally astounds me. I've never had an apartment complex call me back after all the documents have been signed to raise the price. Ridiculous and unacceptable.

Location, location, location, especially when their next door to the Fat Angel. Best sliders ever.
The only thing the Fillmore Center has going for it is it is located in a central location in San Francisco. The complex is located next to a not so good part of town and it bleeds over in the area. I have friends that are frightened to visit. Their security is there but not staffed accordingly to facilitate such a large complex. Cars have been broken into in "Secure Parking" several times. The facilities smell bad. The stairs smell like urine the halls like smoke. Often times there are people smoking in the stairwell. Amenities you pay for have been shutdown for half the year. They are renovating the BBQ area but gave no notice and they are closed for 4-5 months. They are hard to get a hold of if you need to. They have a shuttle to financial but it often doesn't show up. It is a pain when you have to be to work and the shuttle just doesn't show up. They have decided to institute a new fee for an ID system for then shuttle and they pass the cost to you. They try and raise the rent astronomical amounts after your first year. 7-10% They nickel and dime you with hidden fees. When they sell it it sounds great. Then you live here and you realize it isn't.
The Fillmore Center has great eating spots were you can go with friends and have fun. Yes, it is not in a very good area but if you don't mess with any one you will be OK.
