I have been at Blue for almost a year now, and just signed another year lease. It is a great community and has everything you could need on site. Krzysztof, the full-time concierge, is extremely helpful and a joy to chat with. I travel a lot and its great to have someone sign for my packages and deliver them to my apartment. The only incident I have had was with a tenant below me, and I discussed the issue with management and they resolved it promptly and fairly. The rent and size of apartments is quite competitive with apartments with the same amenities. You really can't beat the location; walking distance to grocery store, pharmacy, and plenty of places to enjoy a good meal or happy hour. If you are a biker, jogger, or just like to go for a stroll it is right on the Greenway only a mile from Lake Calhoun. If you like the theaters,bars, or clubs downtown its only a $10 Uber ride. I couldn't be happier with my tenure at Blue.
My wife and I have been here for nearly a year, and the experience has been great. By far, the most attentive staff of any apartment I've lived in. If anything goes wrong in the apartment, you can count on a response and action from their management. Facilities (gym/pool/common area) are always clean, and the residents are friendly young professionals. Great work by the management staff in organizing fun events for residents to meet. Most important for me is that the apartments are relatively sound proof. I’m a very light sleeper, and other than the occasional noise from outside (which should be expected in a city environment), you cannot hear pets, parties, tv or music from other apartments.
Blue is awesome & makes living easy. The gym has everything I need and is never crowded to the point I can't use the space/machine I want. But most importantly the concierge service is the best! Dan and Krzysztof are always going above and beyond. My printer wasn't working and I needed to print a boarding pass for a flight, so I sent it down to the front desk and before I could even get downstairs to pick it up Krzysztof had already delivered it to my door. Like I said- makes living easy!
It's been a year now that we have been at Blue and I can honestly say living here is one of the best aspects about our move to the Twin Cities. The apartment and location are great, the staff is very attentive and helpful. Two of the concierge staff, Trevor and Krzysztof, have always been helpful and on top of any question or request we have had thus far. Definitely staying here another year!
Feelings After Moving In: After moving into Blue roughly 3 months ago and from then till now I can’t say enough good things. To start Blue has an amazing location in uptown! Direct access to the greenway bike/running trail, which I frequent quite often and just as important walking distance from the heart of the uptown nightlife. Blue is adjacent to numerous restaurants and entertainment venues such as the Bryant Bowling alley/theater and the Jungle Theater. Aside from its priceless location Blue has a concierge staff that’s second to none. Specifically Trevor, Jenelle, and Krzysztof. I say that with confidence because there were numerous hiccups that came up in the moving process and while I’ve lived at Blue ranging from parking issues, rent, and maintenance items. However, the concierge staff immediately addressed my issues either within the same day or very soon after. Their attention to detail and willingness to keep Blue well maintained makes this place the best choice to call home for years to come. Feelings Before Moving In: My review is solely based on my initial impressions as I haven't quite moved in yet; however, I believe a review is worth while based on the numerous interactions I've had already with Blue. Currently I'm preparing to start a new job in Minneapolis and was looking for some where to call home at a reasonable price. Blue meet all my needs and has numerous amenities coupled with numerous scheduled get togethers for residents that makes me really excited to move in. Lastly, Blue's staff has been exceptionally helpful during this critical move time as I'm moving from Norfolk, VA. They've answered numerous emails and phone calls with precision and rapid response. I truly can't wait to move in and would recommend this place to anyone!
