Reviews

Good building. Horrible management.

Former Tenant
Pros:
Updated. Only a handful of units. Right next to transit. Working fireplaces. Laundry in units.
Cons:
Management and super are worthless.

Decent Place

Former Tenant
Pros:
Quiet building, very close to the subway. Spacious apartments for what they are.
Cons:
You really had to nudge management to get anything done. Cockroaches were a big problem starting in the spring.

Mostly Good

Former Tenant
Pros:
Quiet, pretty east place to live.
Cons:
Terribly cockroach situation in the summer. Hard to get property management to come take care of that and other little things, but they usually fixed the problem eventually.

Really bad renovation and communication

Former Tenant
Pros:
Layout of apartment was nice, location solid, and neighbors were very considerate.
Cons:
Even at higher floors, street-side apartments have *very* loud noise from daily traffic. Management responsive sometimes, but not consistently in cases of emergency (ie, roof literally leaking, hot water not working repeatedly, oven not being functional for months).

Sketchy AF-lived here for 2 years

Former Tenant
Pros:
High ceilings are gorgeous and and move in condition was good.
Cons:
-The company falsely advertised laundry in unit but said they couldn’t show it bc it was closed for minor repairs. Lived here for 2 years and never had laundry access. - The super is unreliable and low key petty. We couldn’t change our lightbulbs without an industrial ladder and it took literal months to get Manny (the super) to help us. I had to email management bc he wouldn’t even answer his phone. And when he would finally respond after I reached out to management he was openly hostile. He was also super creepy when I got stuck in the elevator and made comments about my body— did not appreciate that at all. Did not feel safe or welcome reaching out to the Super. - Management is sketchy as fuck. I had to threaten to not pay rent to get my lease renewal paperwork (a month late!). I wouldn’t have renewed but it was too expensive to move at the time and some circumstances changed. They didn’t return my deposit for 3 months even though I left the apartment in move in condition. - The apartments are not worth what they charge for them, 3k for a two bedroom without the amenities they promised and an absent (to put it mildly) Super. -The elevator is comically slow. TLDR: do not live here. Management and the Super are sketchy as hell and do not give a damn about their tenants. If you sign a lease here, you’ll think back to this moment and wish you listened to this review.
Advice to owner:
Hire a better super and replace his support staff. Fix the laundry. Lower the rent. Don’t be greedy and rude AF about the deposit and paperwork that you are LEGALLY REQUIRED to provide. And finally, bite me.
