The best part is the location. With everything that is being built around the apartment, this place is really in the center of it all. It used to be the cheapest place around too but with rent now going up so much, it is not worth it. The garage door is always broken and was promised to be fixed multiple times. Staff has notified residents that cameras will be put in as soon as possible but we have never seen this happen and someone tried to steal my boyfriends motorcycle while it was in the garage. Walls are very thin, people are blaring their music and TV's at all hours of the day and management is by far the rudest we have ever dealt with. While they may respond quickly to maintenance requests, they do nothing else to truly help out their residents with anything. If you are looking for a place, you could pay the same amount and go somewhere else.
So far the metro has been a great home - good location, responsive and friendly staff (both office and maintenance) honestly no problems. We haven't had big noise problems or any issues with appliances, and the few issues we had (light bulb out or our sink backed up once) were fixed that day or within 24 hours. Its secure and the parking has been good, we have a garage spot and haven't had any problems with it.
if you want to live in a building that anyone and every has access to then this is the place for you! The garage doors are always broken the doors around the building are always open or broken. The court yard is absolutely disgusting there is no grass, there is dog shit everywhere and is poorly taken care of. You feel like you live in a frat house the walls are thin and you hear just about everything that goes on in the hall way and the apartments around you.
Apartments are not well built, not well maintained, and not well managed and not worth the price. Walls are too thin, appliances break, and staff will not care or help. The location is great but also very noisy at all times of the days -- from neighbors, outside traffic and construction, dogs, trains, etc. Hard to sleep. Sinks will back up, Disposals will break and the Washing Machine flooded the Apartment. Maintenance came and removed the water and confirmed the machine was broken, management refused to replace it or the carpet when it predictably molded and caused the place to reek and everyone to cough. Same experience with others on the Mail -- don't get anything shipped, it will be lost or taken. Safety is a concern, Garage door broke continually --- once for more than a week -- meaning anyone could walk into the garage and then into the building because the doors from the garage to the apartment don't lock or are also broken. While it may seem like a good deal at first the price and location alone won't make up for the noise, the safety, poor quality and poor upkeep and poor service from the staff. Strong recommend looking elsewhere.
The only thing that is great about the Metro is the location. The Management and Staff or terrible and extremely rude! Half of the equipment in the gym is broken. I have put in several requests to have it fixed and replaced. They do a half a** fix job, the treadmills work for a bit then break again. The doors are always broken and most times you don't need a key to get in if you pull them. Maintenance takes a few calls to get anything fixed and the court yard in the third building is disgusting. There is no grass from the dogs, lights are broken, the fountain isn't on half the time. If you can afford to live at another location downtown, DO IT!!!!!
