Could be great
Former Tenant
Pros:
Honestly, the renovations are nice. Pretty sure some of them aren’t done by trained professionals but it looks nice. They make an attempt to keep the hallways clean. They moved the trash from behind the building to keep the rats at bay. Right by the C train. Could be a great building and definitely better than many I’ve stayed at. Honestly a pretty good experience until it wasn’t.
Cons:
- Mail often stolen, no cctv - reported a growing leak in the ceiling via several channels (their online system, via email, and the super) never fixed. We gave up. -someone in the building blasts music (our floors literally vibrate from the bass) - an occasional roach but mostly ok there, management seems to have taken that issue seriously - Huge GAS LEAK in the building. Several of us had to call National Grid because of the smell. At least one tenant reached directly to management and no one was sent out.
Advice to owner:
Get permits for building work and use trained professionals. Help us keep our mail from being stolen. Need a better means of communication with tenants- often requests go unanswered. The Reno’s look great overall though we weren’t sure if some of it was done professionally. Seems like this could be an amazing building - just a few things keeping it from being great.
