Let me start by telling you - IF I wasn't stuck in this LEASE, I would be gone. I found it funny that last night I came home to a flyer offering to enter me into a drawing for $500.00 if I would leave a GREAT REVIEW about their "Quick Maintenance" or "Awesome Staff" - Unfortunately, their maintenance NEVER responded to my calls over MULTIPLE days, not even a call to tell me "Sorry.", It took them three days to fix our emergency exit (yes, thats right, there was NO way to exit the building through one of the MANDATORY doors, and the fire department told me that they would remove the door if it was like this one more day. The staff is fake, the assistant manager is always talking negatively about tenants that aren't around when I am forced to go to them due to a problem. There is an ever growing bed bug problem, that seems to not be being addressed based on actions of those affected. Now down to the "amenities" - This "new" management has done alot of superficial fixes, like adding drab grey siding, and painting the hallways a dark grey with teal accents, which looks horrible and makes it seem very tunnel like - The heat in these buildings is TERRIBLE, and utilities are ALWAYS going up. I started off paying $45 a month for utilities, and now my monthly "share" of the utilities is over $120 for a one bedroom, I NEVER use my heat as the building is always a blistering 75 even with my air conditioner running. The building has ANCIENT boiler system which leaks, but management doesn't care about that because its behind closed doors, but they'll be happy to pass the cost onto you. The entrances to the building always smell like urine, as a lot of the tenants let their dogs pee immediately outside the doors. I can't believe that I signed a new lease with this new management, who have pulled out the majority of the trees to zeroscape, their is constant noise of construction, including new JACKHAMMERING all hours of the day. The parking is TERRIBLE, there are never any spots available to park in, and if you park next to the "New dumpster containers - beware, my car now has a HUGE dent in it due to the door flying open (because they dont latch shut!), but management denys responsibility. All in all, I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone.. in fact the ONLY positive thing about this place would be the nice lady who sits behind the desk at the front desk, she is always helpful and very polite, unfortunately it doesnt seem that she has the power to help the tenants with any real problems. Also, the maintenance man is very polite, but good luck getting the management to allow him to fix anything for you.
