Parking will always suck but it's because they will never have enough staff members, btw make sure you do a walk around your car when you pick up and drop off your car because they will make it seem like you did the damages on your personal vehicle. I know what I'm talking about because I used to be an Assistant Manager there and I got fired because I would not back them up when the valets would do any damages to the residents vehicles and we had to bury the dirty work. The current Manager Mr. Johnson is worst then Donald Trump, he does not know what he's doing and won't even help out the valet or the residents when needed as team captain. Usually what he does when it comes to sticking his nose out is to send his assistants out to do his dirty work to cover up any mistakes so he can keep his job while everyone around him losses their jobs. Hopefully you guys find this information useful and get that douche bag the Karma he deserves.
I'm living here for 2 months and so far everything is good. Big apartments with high quality kitchen, dish washer, washing machine and dryer. If you have anything broken, you can create a support request on the beacon community web site, go to work and when you return it will be fixed. I recommend Beacon, it's really a very good complex.
It's an awesome experience here in the Beacon. It is an awesome place to stay and commute to anywhere in nyc and nj. The shuttle, the management and the included amenities help out a lot
This place is a hell hole. Don't let the fancy finishes fool you DON'T LET THESE FAKE, PAID FOR RATINGS FOOL YOU. THERE IS A REASON WHY THERE IS NO WRITTEN REVIEW ATTACHED TO THEM!!! if the previous reviews don't frighten you enough, the leasing office has "lost" my rent and charged me a return fee in addition so stating they never received my payment from my bank, which bank of american confirmed they did. this was after two months of no sleep because my neighbor illegally had dogs in her unit that barked all night, in addition to mysterious sketchy men in and out of her apartment all the time whom are loud in the hallways, no matter if its noon or 3 am. Once the leasing staff is called out on their mis-management, you get called names and generally get NO service instead of the bare minimum faux-concerns you got previously. It's so frustrating to not be able to get out of my lease, and the only option I've been given to move is to go into a $200 more a month apartment... why would I ever agree to pay these people more money than I absolutely have to? don't be cheap and just settle. there are so many better options in jersey city. I am counting down the days until i can escape this place. [UPDATE] still the most god awful place ever. For the first time in 11 months, I left my keys on the UPPER EAST SIDE [1.5 hours away!!!] and was threatened to a lockout charge of $150...for what?! I have lived in doormen building my whole life, and not ONCE have I ever been CHARGED to get in. Apparently they don't trust SECURITY or the DOOR MAN to have access to keys... but they trust a HANDY MAN?! explain that to me, please. There is no courtesy, the shuttles are so crowded sometimes you have to wait for the next one, the neighbors are incredibly rowdy and inconsiderate, and the walls are paper thin. This is not luxury, this is cheap and tacky. Every single thing they do is to pinch pennies, and I cannot wait to leave this hell hole when my lease is over.
If you're in the Rialto-Capitol building, there are a lot of rules that seem to apply to some but not others. People park wherever they feel like even on someone's reserved spot. If you want to move out, it has to be done Mon-Fri 9-5p...no exceptions made, apparently only for a selected few. If you purchase a new appliance or furniture, it can't be delivered on weekends...again, that seems to not apply to a selected few. The employees in the management office are extremely rude and unprofessional, and they definitely don't go out of their way to help you in any way. Once you're in, they no longer look at you or care if you have concerns. The parking is through an outside company (ProPark), so if you have issues with that, the building management won't help...it's not their problem. And the price to park goes up every year anywhere from $25-$50...it's currently at $275/month. I hear that reserved spots in the Beacon garage is $325/month It's insane. By the way, as a Rialto-Capitol residents, you're not actually allowed to self park your car, only the Beacon residents can. And your car is parked in an old garage building where the elevators are constantly breaking down...so if you need your car on those days, GOOD LUCK!! Beacon residents, however, get to park in the brand new multi-level garage that's right next door. The two management companies, Rialto-Capital and Beacon, seem to constantly be at each other's throats and the residents always pay the price for it. The Beacon has a huge gym that the Rialto-Capital residents can't use, but the Rialto's small gym is open to everyone. Doesn't make any sense to me. So many issues, I feel all jumbled up. Can't wait to get out of this God-forsaken place!!
