I just love coming home and getting harassed by the assholes that live here. I hate this apartment. Don't ever move into Fairways at Lowry on Havana. Its a shithole. The office is unhelpful, unfriendly, and uncaring. The entire complex constantly smells like weed. If you have packages they never get delivered because of the inconvenient office hours. The maintenance staff is rude and misogynistic. The laundry room is sporadically the place of homeless smokers. Not to mention the paper thin walls and insane construction staff that will make you feel like your ceiling is caving in. There has been a German cockroach infestation for almost a year now. There have been pipe bursts that have been left for weeks, mold that's been spackled over, windows that won't open, holes in walls, and broken stairs. And there are random assholes who reside around the complex that will harass you every chance they get. When issues are reported the staff sweeps them under the rug. Whether they're personnel issues, maintenance, or residents. Absolutely unacceptable. This entire complex should be reported and investigated.
Its rough... The staff is nice. The laundry usual works. Fitness center only open during business hours makes using it a inconvenience. Loud... Very loud. The construction guys are horrible nasty mean to residents. The hot water fluctuates alot. No light fixtures. New appliances. Hot all the time from boiler. No working thermostat. Hard floors need lots of rugs. Window at in living room bedrooms are super hot.
Lived here for a good number of months now. We decided to look at this place initially to just make sure we weren't missing an opportunity, despite the horrible reviews that you can see. We moved in right as the place was being put under new management, and we haven't had a bad experience personally yet with the people who run this place or with the people who live here. It used to be a ghetto neighborhood, but it really has turned around in the short time we've been here. We got our apartment for the older prices of the building, which was a steal considering how much the rent went up in the passed few months. But regardless of the prices, it does look like it will be worth it in no time for the people who can afford it. The entire place has been re-painted and work is being done on the buildings all the time to improve them. We've never had any kind of noise problems, and the place is as well-kept as it can be for a new company taking over. The people we live near in our building have been nothing but polite. The only complaint we can really say to look out for isn't even all that much of a complaint ~ About once a month, we might see one cockroach in the kitchen. Management has already sprayed for the bugs once, so this problem will probably be completely gone as time goes on. Air conditioning and heating work perfectly, pets are allowed, laundry units work very well, as long as you don't try to dry your entire wardrobe in one cycle. Would recommend!
03/03/15 I am a new resident to this apartment community and I have only been here for one month exactly. I reported my car being towed the next day after paying our rent to the office management and they did not show any sympathy, they have failed to follow up with me and I have still have not been reimbursed TBD. We were not notified that the heat was out in the entire apartment complex until a weekend blizzard after residing in the apartment for 2 weeks so maintenance brought us a miniature heater WTH? The day before yesterday our power was cut off in 20 degree below weather. One week after move-in they left a notice stating the apartment was going to hire "German Roaches" to come and spray, but the next day I saw a baby roach in the bathroom. Since then we were told because this complex is under new management this is a non-smoking facility; however, some tenants are still leased under old management and they're entitled to smoke.
This place is a hole! Don't just look at the apartment they show you, look through the other hallways. There is flooring torn up, holes in walls, and far too frequently there is animal feces randomly in the hallways. One of the stairwells in my building smells like urine. There is a roach infestation right now and has been for maybe the last 8-10 months (so far most of 2014). Every once in a great while they ill have someone spray for the roaches. They post a note on your door the day before. The day before. That means you get home and you get to put all of your food in containers or plastic and out of the cupboards along with all your kitchenware. If you have a pet you also have to make arrangements. This is all after you find the paper on your door after work. They're staff have gotten significantly better since I regrettably signed here but the building is dirty. They've also recently (summer of 2014) painted the outside of the building and stopped renewing leases for many of the residents. It's a lipstick on a pig situation. The buildings look nicer from the outside but inside they are terrible. Run. Run away.
