Great apartment building. Large apartments. Agreeable rent for a 2bedroom, 2 bath unit. Small exercise facility, credit card enabled laundry machines, friendly staff, front desk service, package reception, RFID entry, pet friendly, parking lot, available on-street parking, gas stove, dishwasher, garbage disposal, wood floors throughout. Subjective Cons: old building, metal doors that allow a disturbing amount of hallway sound through, lots of AU and GT students live here, fraternity atmosphere at odd hours, marijuana smell leaks into my apartment from the neighbors across the way. Overall, a good apartment building that is clean. I would recommend it to friends in the 20-30 age range.
I currently live here and have since 2011. I love this building, love the location, LOVE my apartment. Beautiful parquet floors, thick walls, friendly staff (most of them anyway). Pet-friendly (I have cats). I am very happy here.
We've lived here for 18 months and while we love the location, we've had so many issues here. The neighbourhood is great and it's a short walk to work but it seems of the residents here think that it is a college dorm. We've had parties going on until 2 or 3 am and lots of drunk 20-somethings staggering around waiting for elevators and talking/shouting in their usual manner. Originally, the staff were great but now we get the impression that the staff (with one or two exceptions) just can't be bothered. The building is tired and needs some serious investment. We've had issues with mice, maintenance and lifts regularly smell of urine - dog or human? Who knows...
I moved into this apartment building when I first moved to DC and didn't know the area. These apartments are grossly overpriced, lacking amenities, and terrible terrible customer service. I 100% regret living in this community. I currently live in an apartment two blocks away that is 100 sq.ft. larger, $400/month cheaper, and chock-full of amenities. You can find something better, trust me!
If there were negative stars I would give it that. This is by far the worst building I have lived at in this city. It is terrible, the staff is rude and pretty much impossible to get a hold of and there are hidden fees everywhere. DO NOT LIVE HERE!
