I am really disappointed with equinox. After living here for 15 months, they raised my rent 9.8%, they didn't raise 10% since they would have had to give me 60 days noticed. This way, they forced me to accept 10% raise since 10 days is not enough to find a decent place. They treat you as cash machine, and they don't have any respect for you. What would be the worst case scenario if they had given me timely notice? The building is suppose to be smoke free, but there are cigaret butts on my patio!!
Borderline criminals. The Comcast of apartments. We needed to relocate to Seattle for four months for work. We signed an explicit lease for these four months. We paid in full and left the apartment in perfect condition. Now, over a month after moving out they are sticking us with a $1600 bill for the month after our lease was over because we supposedly didn't give proper notice that we were leaving. We asked at the beginning of the month what we needed to do in order to move out. We also returned their questionnaire saying we would not be renewing. To top it off, we received none of our security deposit back. We left the apartment just like we found it. They will use your deposit for mandatory cleaning and painting no matter what. It's really a non refundable deposit. Beware of this place.
I thought this was supposed to be an apartment not a fraternity! My house is shaking because of the base and I am hearing Fwords and girls screaming! I dont have any phone number to call to complain and this is the worst!!
These were originally built as condos but construction finished in 2009 so were converted to apartments and rented due to the real estate climate at the time. The units are fairly nice with Viking appliances and well insulated walls. Bathrooms are big...maybe just a tad too big in ratio to the bedroom size but still a decent set up. Some units have balconies but if they do not there is a very big shared rooftop deck on the 7th floor available to all residents and a 'great room' on ground level which contains a pool table, big screen television and kitchen; this can be reserved by residents for larger gatherings. There is a private parking garage with key card or remote access and here is where the building and management’s approach fail miserably. The security cameras are poor and sometimes don't function. There are easy areas to climb the wall and gain access to the private areas of the garage. Cars are regularly broken into and locked bikes stolen (chain and cables cut), seemingly on a weekly basis. Individuals in the building have encountered prowlers in the garage to no concern of management; even when it is reported by women leaving for work early in the morning alone. The attitude is uncaring and response dismal, it is essentially “park at your own risk” in what is being sold to residents as secured parking areas. After filing a couple of police reports for stolen property, this residence was compared to slum buildings in another area of town for the frequency of burglaries by the officers. In summary, with the downtown location and proximity to the lake, it has all the bells and whistles which would make it a great building. However the regularity of property damage and level of thievery is exceptionally high; thus dragging down an otherwise decent community. The rent range for this location is too high for the level of safety delivered.
