Been living here for going on 3 years now and I pretty much like it here. Yes there is dog poop, yes some trash is seen here and there, but we do live in a college town... it isn't going to be the ritz. Only complaint I have is with the work orders I request. They either do not come to fix the issue or they halfway fix my issue. Overall, I'd recommend living at Logan Square.
Staff: The management can be best described as apathetic. While helpful at times, more often than not the employees exhibit and air of condescension and worthlessness irrespective of the facility of their jobs. Maintenance is also poor and almost always has to be called back multiple times to fix a simple problem. Not to mention they have almost always barged into my apartment without knocking. Units: Having seen many different units within the complex, I can say that there are in fact good, clean ones and in my case, terrible ones. My unit is old and coated in the grime and dirt of who knows how many prior tenants. It is plain to see that these units were built very cheaply with little thought in mind. Older units are riddled with shoddy repairs, awful paint jobs and overall poor upkeep in general. Because of a scheduling conflict, I was forced to move in to my unit before they could perform repairs and cleaning, although I’m not sure how much good this would have done. The carpet in my bedroom stinks of dog urine and management has refused to take any form of action. Finally, I can hear everything that happens in my neighbors units ranging from screaming fights to fornication. The kitchen appliances are aright but the washer dryer is too small to handle many articles. Internet: The only internet service available is provided by the complex via WiFi and is worthless even on a good day. There is little bandwidth, disconnection problems and an impossibility to have any form of personal networking. You can completely forget about ever easily using a device like an apple tv. The ISP is Charter I believe. Grounds: The grounds are generally pretty well kept; however, the place is often a mine field of dog poop. This may really be a comment on tenants more than the complex, but I often find the same piles of poop generally linger for many days. Location: The location is pretty convenient to campus, about a 10-15 minute walk depending on where on campus you’re heading. It’s also not a bad walk to downtown (about a mile), but West Glenn is narrow and has no sidewalk making it treacherous at times. Conclusion: Cheap is probably the best way to describe everything except the rent at this place. I would HIGHLY encourage you to look elsewhere. Hardly deserves even 1 star.
Awful. Lived here in 2014. Everywhere there is trash and dog poop. Maintenance is no where to be found. We didn't have pipes to the drain on our sink when we moved in and it took them 3 weeks to get out here, only to order a part and not come back for another 3 weeks. Staff is awful as well. It's impossible to get information on anything. Plus it's not even that close to campus
I didn't listen to the reviews before I moved in. I thought it was too late. I had already signed the lease and everything. So if you read this BEFORE you sign a lease take it from me and STAY AWAY. At this very moment I am trying to study for a big test coming up and I feel like I'm in the middle of a zoo. You can hear everything that is going on in the building including couples arguing (every single night if you have my neighbors), people running up and down the stairs, dogs barking, and even the neighbor's bathroom visits. The internet is worthless, and it seems to know when you have an assignment to turn in online and decides to quit on you right when you need it most. There have been many occasions that I have had to use my phone's tethering capabilities just to get my homework done. Also, the whole place is nasty. A couple of weeks after move-in, I walked down the stairs to find a puddle of vomit splattered across the bottom step. Just a week ago, I came home to find another puddle right beside it. They're both still there. Just to tell you a little more about the sanitation issues around here, the same day I came home to the second vomit splatter, I also found a lovely pile of dog poop UNDER my door mat. And speaking of dog poop, it's EVERYWHERE! So watch your step. Overall, Logan Square is noisy, dirty, and completely not worth the money you pay to stay here. I don't think I have to tell you that I definitely won't be renewing my lease at the end of the year.
maintenance leaves something to be desired but otherwise is a good place to live!
