Need affordable tenant insurance? Check out our deal with Nuera Insurance!
Q. Rats, mice, gang bangers, hard drug paraphernalia loose in the halls, garage doors don't work, steel wool, evictions central, police will barely attend. Broken windows and locks. Garbage pile-ups. Bed bugs, laundry steals money or doesn't function. Not one sleep through the night in 1000. Worse than jail.

Reviewer says...
Lived here for a few years.
First off the pool is great when it's open. Usually early July if lucky to mid or late Aug.
Sauna rooms are fine when they work.
Laundry rooms on each floor, two washer/dryers per room, hard to get into on weekends., which is expected with 30 apartments on 2nd-4th floors.
Only so many storage lockers, likely not to get one.
Cleanliness, well the lobby usually is clean, but the building supervisor wasn't always on top of the cleaning unless someone pointed out the obvious to him.
The walls are paper thin, you can hear people having a normal conversation next to you.
As for security, tenants will let anyone in. I constantly made people buzz in and not just follow me in, you don't know who the person is, but you'll let them into your building? This also went for the underground parking. People wouldn't wait for the fate to close and people would sneak in and break into cars. It got so bad in the parking area they once had a sign up sheet for people to patrol the underground. Wouldn't spring for a security guard for a couple weeks.
Building supervisor did suite inspections once a year I believe. Any defecencies he'd have a guy come fix. I remember the lovely mess the guy made in my bathroom after cocking tiles in shower. He got the stuff on the counters, sink, toilet and wiped his hands off on my towels, classy.
The building supervisor got upset when I asked him to remove the black mold from the shower prior to me moving in. Place was a huge mess, found what looked like mouse droppings behind fridge and under stove and also asked him to clean it up. How do you let people move out and leave the place in such shabby conditions and expect the new tenant to clean it!
Ended up having rats in the building. Caughtva few, told the building supervisor, he said "oh it's just a mouse" showed it to a pest control friend and confirmed it was a rat. Building super wouldn't do anything. Told me to put steel wool around registers and vents. Never followed up on my other complaints when I found rat poop all over the suite. 5 people including myself moved out the same month due to rats.
I stayed there as long as I did because the rent was decent and close to my work, but moved and paid more for a non infested building.
Would not recommend this place.
