the lady in the leasing office told me she will hold the apartment and get back to me. and then she leased it to someone else. this is not a professional way of woking
Great location, especially for the winter. Some of the units have great views and this is a real plus. The local community staff (maintenance & concierge) is also really good and friendly. Its really worn down and lacks any amenities in the unit that are pretty common-place now. For the price, you'd expect a higher level of finishes and upgrades to systems. The recent renovations are also quite unattractive and have been challenging to live through. I advise anyone looking there to really consider some other options in the area that are a far better price for some more in-unit luxuries.
I am a current resident, and as a write this review, I hear constant hammering coming from the apartments above me. If construction were occasional it would not be a big deal, but if you're going to live at Avalon Prudential, you must be the sort of person that does not mind living in a place where there are frequent disruptions due to construction. It's the number one reason why I will not be renewing my lease when it comes due. The number 2 reason is the elevators. Even at off times, the wait for an elevator just seems unacceptable. When I first moved here the elevators were much more timely. Not anymore. I assume it may have something to do with construction as I see workers in the elevators on a frequent basis (painters, etc), and this influx of elevator usage may be one reason for the delays. There are service elevators, but for some reason most of the staff/workers use the main elevator which leads to delays. The maintenance of the elevators also seems troubled. One of them is scratched up because the doors are not aligned. Each time they close you hear an annoying scratching sound. Another downside is the air temperature. You have limited control over how cold your apartment can be. I like it pretty cold (perhaps colder than most), but in order to get the air temperature to a level of comfort that I enjoy, i've had to purchase a number of fans. The maintenance staff has come out to help increase the air flow but that has not helped much. On the plus side, most of the concierge workers are very good, and the office staff is very responsive, and they follow-through well. The maintenance staff is also very good - if I call with a problem I am confident they will come to fix it quickly.
Live there...ok place, management of the property is poor. Outside area is always dirty. The inside is kept clean but the entrance and grounds are terrible. You would think management would want the groups to look good at these prices. The construction is terrible!!!! I am looking to move when my lease is up. Check out The Clarendon, clean!!!
