Just paid north of $1,600 for a one bedroom and it was the worst place I've ever lived.....................Me: I'm locked out. Will you help?.....................CPW: Deal with it...................Me: I'm moving and would love a short-term, extra parking pass to make my life a bit easier, please?.................CPW: Nope. I'll have someone call you................Me: (still waiting......).......................Me: Why is it always 10-15 degrees warmer than the outside temp in my hallway.....................CPW: It's the boiler.....................Me: Ok, so how is that my problem and what are your plans to fix it?................CPW: Humans don't possess the technology...................I can't tell you how disappointed I am that I didn't read these reviews first (the manager tried to convince me there weren't bad reviews all over the web about CPW.) I could have gone anywhere else in the area, paid the same rate, and not felt so abused......................Cheap materials. Garage doors broken 20% of the time. Security doors work 60-70% of the time. For a building with so many units, the gym should be considered criminal. I have stuff to do right now but I could go on for quite some time.
Most of those negative reviews are from a while ago before they changed management. The location is unbeatable! The apartments are very nice spacious, tons of closet space and the staff is very attentive. Anytime there has been an issue, maintenance has fixed the problem promptly.
This is possibly the worst living situation I've ever been in. At the time I signed my lease, there was planned construction on Platte street that Commons Park staff didn't disclose to me. This construction is constant, disruptive, and extremely noisy (going from 6:30 am usually until late at night). When I brought up the issue to the management staff, they told me that they could relocate me but that they'd be increasing my rent by a minimum of 100 dollars. On top of this the fire alarms go off constantly, the walls are paper thin, and the apartments are extremely overpriced. Do yourself a favor and live literally anywhere else, you'll be much better off.
The location is the only good thing about living here. Garage doors didn't work 4 out of the 12 months, fire alarms went off constantly, appliances constantly went out, HVAC went out constantly. Terrible service on maintenance requests. AND ridiculously expensive for the area. Go across the highway and pay ~$200/month less.
I've lived in CPW for almost two years. My first year wasn't bad, there were issues with the fire alarms but I was told they were in the process of fixing those. Rent was actually reasonable because I came in just when GreyStar took over, so they hadn't priced it out relative to other complexes in the area yet. I felt good about what I was getting for the price. However, renewing my lease ended up being the worst decision. First of all, the upped my rent about $250 per month. And they offered me this "deal" three months before my lease was up, saying it was the best price I could possibly get. This doesn't make sense, however, since their rent prices are constantly changing. I've been my same apartment listed for almost $150 cheaper than what I'm paying. Apparently they screw over their loyal tenants by tricking them into higher rent? About three months after I renewed for my second year they changed the parking to "open parking." This makes absolutely no sense and all it does is inconvenience residents. It seems an easy parking plan would be to assign a spot to each apartment, and then if people want another spot the upper lot floors can be open for that. I don't know why they can't figure that out, either they're too lazy and don't care or they're actually idiots. Both are very likely. There are plenty of other problems with this place, near constant maintenence issues, hallways smell like garbage, the hallways aren't cleaned in a reasonable amount of time (there was once a pile of dog poop left in my hallway for 2 days), the buzz-in system doesn't work. I'm so sick of living in this place and paying an outrageous amount of money. They don't even try to pretend like they care about their residents' satisfaction. It's a bummer because there isn't a better neighborhood in Denver than Lohi, but this level of incompetence make it no longer worth it.
