Reviewer says...
I've lived in this building since 2007, and overall it's a good place to live.

The Good:
-The two supers who look after the building are nice, and you see them every morning cleaning the main floor area as well as the hallways of the basement levels. If you ask for something to get done, they are always very good about taking care of things promptly.
-The have additional cleaners that come in and vacuum and clean the hallways of all floors
-The laundry room has 8 washers and 8 dryers and are operated on card system. The room is generally clean-the supers clean it most mornings but tenants like to leave lint and dryer sheets lying around, and for the most part the machines are in order (if not they are fixed in a timely fashion)
-In the last few years they have been investing more money in the building: the radiant heat ramp was replaced in 2017; the two elevators are currently being re-done inside and out; and I've heard they are also going to be renovating all of the hallways. Additionally, they are upgrading suites as they become vacant with new flooring etc.
-Great location: this building is close to any amenity you could want and is easily accessible.

The Not-So-Great:
-The kitchens (in the one bedroom) are quite small, and don't have much space for stuff.
-The garage: there are some areas in the underground garage where water leaches through the concrete, so if you're in one of those spots, the paint on your car might get damaged.
-This building has hot water baseboard heat, with no in-unit thermostat which means it is super hot all year long (at least if you're west facing). Even in summer on the west side the sun really heats up the unit (as the building is not air conditioned, though you can install a unit)
-The 1 bedroom units do not have much in the way of storage/closet space, which I don't really like, but if you don't have a lot of stuff it's not that bad.

Bugs: I've been in this building almost 11 years, overall this building has been pretty good for not really having a huge problem. I can comment on my experience as follows:
Cockroaches: I've literally only seen one cockroach in the time I've lived here.
Ants: building had them a few years back, but this was treated and haven't seen one since.
Bed Bugs: I have never seen one in my apartment
Silverfish: There are some - I see more on the balcony than inside, and i maybe see 3/year
