Been waiting for over a month to receive the FOB device and Property Manager didn't even bother to leave me an email or a call to respond me. When I finally ran into him after a month and asked for it, he tells me to pay $50 for the device. Now had he told me about this before, I would've given him that straight away but was absolutely disgusted when it came to my attention after all this time. Secondly, the pool sticks & pool table are in very bad shape. They might appear nice in the pictures but would end up making you regret your decision as soon as you actually start to feel the "extravagant" experience they have to offer.
I've been here for about a month now and have had about as bad as you could possibly happen so I'd say stay away, stay far away. Check out Justison or anywhere else that isn't Rodney Square. To begin: I move a bunch because of my job/profession and every so often I have to move site unseen. So whenever this situation arises I have to put my trust into the salesman, and in this case the salesman completely misrepresented nearly everything about the complex, my apartment, and the area. For a luxury apartment, appliances, from the stove that smokes for no reason (as in it smoked before I ever cooked anything on it) to the faucets that always leak and the washer/dryer unit that are comically small, the apartment is just sad. Despite my writing all the issues with the apartment in my check-in inspection page, nothing has been fixed; get used to them not doing anything to help you out. The area that Rodney Square is located in requires "Security Administrators" walking up and down the street nearly every hour of the day and then 100 yards up the street the Wilmington Police Department stations a cop car/unit every morning until 7 PM as a deterrent. So if you are ever told the area is "nice and safe" as I was, just know that's, if not a blatant lie, a massive misrepresentation. Speaking of which, if you are told your room "has a great view," make sure you actually see that view first because my room on the 10th floor has a great view... of the rooms across the opening and thats about it. Plus, while the carpeting on the second floor is pristine, I don't think the carpets on the 10th floor have been cleaned since before Obama was president (this is being written in 2016). If you like working out make sure you bring you own equipment because the highly touted workout room is abysmal and I haven't seen a wipedown cloth or towel since the very first day I moved in so make sure you shower before and after you workout there. I live with a roommate and it took six days for him to receive his key because the same snake oil salesman who misrepresented the complex, doesn't follow through on anything. If you hear "I'm right on it." It'll probably take a week. Moreover, he has still yet to receive his access FOB and this is a week and a half later as I write this. This wouldn't be the biggest problem, except for the fact that the front desk, which is "manned 24 hours" routinely has an absent concierge who "will be back shortly." It is a joke among the residents here about the availability of the front desk man, with the exception of the usual morning guy who is courteous and always at his post. The only reason my roommate even has a key is because of the diligence of the front desk man, the salesman I worked with is about as accommodating as a punch in the face. Moreover, if you ever have any complaints and try to work your way up the ladder to get in touch with somebody that might be able to help you within the BPGroup. Thus far they are entirely useless. Write a well-worded and specific complaint? Don't expect a timely response. Heaven forbid somebody actually worry about something like customer service. So please, in short, do yourself a favor and spent an extra $150-$200 to stay anywhere else. Rodney Square is a mess. If you can live anywhere else, do that, you won't regret it... as opposed to my time at Rodney Square where I have regretted every second thus far. -J P.S. Make sure to avoid the left elevator as much as possible. It has a tendency to miss the desired floor and does this fun little drop for no reason and you can get momentarily stuck in-between floors. If this happens, just hit the desired floor again and hold on to the rails.
they are truly lovely... but whats the rent for a 2 bedroom and a 1 bedroom? we're considering moving there in May 2016
Inside the apartment is nice - my favorite part of this place - except the stove is electric-coil - not flat (and no gas) and the fridge has no icemaker, so its not truly a luxury apartment given they cheaped out on the appliances... otherwise its pergo floors and views of buildings,nothing special. No blinds on the top floor so DONT go top floor unless you wanna waste $1k on window coverings - and parking is an extra $200 a month - if you dont want to pay it DONT MOVE HERE - also get inside before night time cause the bums are rampant and will hound you for $ - business hours they are less of an issue. Its really a terrible neighborhood outside of business day working hours so dont be fooled - this is not the place to be. I am only here for work but if you want to make a home it is NOT here. That and Sherry (manager) is a salesman-like bullshi**er (will tell you anything to get you off the phone or avoid blame) so if you have problems with the service or amenities then the management here will not please you.
I was clerking for a judge in Wilmington and was really just looking for a place close by. I found the Residences at Rodney Square to be a pretty good fit. For the price, you get a lot of extras including the biggest gym I have ever seen in an apartment building. I recommended the building to my replacement and he went there too, from what I heard he likes his apartment as well!
