Reviews

Highly recommend not to rent in this building

Former Tenant
Pros:
Location. That's it
Cons:
- Terrible landlords. Raised rent by 50% after 1 year and refused to negotiate. Had a lawyer call and berate me instead - Incredibly thin walls. I could hear my neighbor cough and toilets flushing from two different apartments - Very cheap finishes that'd always break - Foundations of the building were old and in constant need of repairs. A major leak sprung from my ceiling, my heat stopped working in the winter, a pipe had to be replaced in my bathroom - Landlord simply does not care about the tenants

Advice to owner:
show more compassion for tenants during pandemic

Scaffolding up with no sign of construction

Former Tenant
Pros:
Pretty clean within the building, garbage management is good. Regular maintenance work down on inside of building.
Cons:
There are roaches and mice, packages have been getting stolen. They put up scaffolding about a year ago an its still up, covering the whole building. The has been zero construction done, I'm guessing this is just to bypass the law of making sure the facade of the building is safe. Landlord probably trying to save money by using scaffolding instead of fixing the issues. This causes lack of sunlight coming into the building and bars forming nest on the scaffolding and bird shit all over.
Advice to owner:
Stop being cheap. Fix the main issues in this building. Not the small ones where it makes you look like you're doing something when you're actually not

126 Elizabeth st-

Former Tenant
Pros:
No bug or rat problems. Clean building with newly renovated apartments
Cons:
No online rent payment. The hot water and heat did shut off a couple of times in the winter but management was responsive and usually came and fixed within the hour. The live in super cannot really help with much so getting repairs does take some time.
Advice to owner:
Be prepared to get packages as soon as they arrive as there has been some theft issues!

Mgmt sucked

Former Tenant
Pros:
the location, building, and neighbors were lovely. and despite a weirdly sized kitchen and no closets, it was a great place to land.
Cons:
The management company lost our rent check on multiple occasions and didn't alert us till the end of the month and acted like we didn't pay. additionally they never fixed the leaking radiator in my room all winter and started to ghost me after several calls.
Advice to owner:
please fix things in a timely manor

Beautiful, super small, super expensive

Former Tenant
Pros:
Amazing neighborhood, clean apartment on move-in, lots of natural light on the upper floors
Cons:
William Gottlieb is a massive management company that doesn’t care at all about individual tenants. They’re incentivized to do the bare minimum, and in a neighborhood like the WV there are tenants willing to pay astronomical rates so they don’t care if you’re disappointed. Our rent went up by over 50% after the first year—we knew it was a COVID deal that wouldn’t last but didn’t expect to pay over $1,500 more per month for the second year. Enjoy it while you have it!
Advice to owner:
Be more humane with rent raises

Cons:

Wondering why rent spiked 50%

Clean building

Former Tenant
Pros:
Trash was taken care of consistently, and the hallways and stairwells were also sanitized regularly.
Cons:
The heating system is whack - you can't turn it off or control it (MGMT sent letters with rent saying you CANNOT turn the heat gauge down on the heaters), so in the dead of winter with the window open and a fan blowing you're still sweating like you're in a sauna.
Advice to owner:
Figure out how to keep your renters from sweating every day.

Packages Will Get Stolen

Former Tenant
Pros:
Building management keeps it in check mostly, like the large windows and it’s location, the unit we got is open concept which we like
Cons:
Roommates and I have each had multiple packages stolen and building management just tells to submit police reports (which I did and never heard back), bedrooms are very cramped, radiators are prehistoric and stupid loud
Advice to owner:
With all the cameras owner has installed, please monitor who gets access to the building and steals from your tenants.

Terrible Management - no gas

Former Tenant
Pros:
Good size and light filled apartment
Cons:
Gas was turned off for extended time. Building management had no rush to give back heat and hot water in winter. It was over a year with the gas off so no cooking ability either. Management basically said to suck it up. City officers turned up multiple times. Mice in stairwells. Rent not to the value of size and management service.

Charming building run by repugnant management

Former Tenant
Pros:
Great location! Their maintenance stuff is great, if something breaks they usually have someone around to send on a short notice.
Cons:
Management is NOT tenant friendly. Most of the people in the building don’t renew the lease. Non existent customer service, rude! Beware they raise rent 10% each year.
Advice to owner:
Treat your tenants with respect.

Small, overpriced & unaccommodating

Former Tenant
Pros:
Excellent location (border of Nolita and Chinatown)
Cons:
Building management is incredibly rude and unaccommodating; unit was priced at over $3k a month for a 1.5 bed & bath (second bedroom can accommodate a full bed only, no furniture). Rent was raised 20% after 1 year with no explanation or room for negotiation. Pre-pandemic the bar below (Tropical 128) was very loud Thurs-Saturday nights (music & talking can be heard in rooms facing the street or the bar).
