I lived in a 1 BR unit here for a year and loved it. I had a great view north over the library's book-themed parking garage, the river market area, and the downtown airport. Beautiful skies and the unit itself was… Full Review ▶

I DO NOT recommend this place. There are a thousand reasons I am glad I left and maybe one reason why I liked it. Cons: - There is a hobo that loves to live inside the building. It wouldn't be so… Full Review ▶

This place prior to new management that took over a few month ago was great!! A clean, quiet place that ran smoothly; however, with the new manager that took over and her staff are extremely, ignorant, inefficient, double-charge rents, don't pay… Full Review ▶

I have just perused a few of the reviews posted here, and I must emphatically disagree with the dismissive opinions of a few of the anonymous posters here. I have lived in the Library Lofts for almost exactly two years, and… Full Review ▶

Eh. It's fine. I've lived here for about 2 years and there have been fabulous moments, and terrible moments. Most of the staff is very nice, but quite incompetent at their job. The old property manager, Cindy, was the best thing… Full Review ▶

I lived in the Library lofts from Aug 2009-Aug 2010 and had a wonderful experience. Management is wonderful, they are always friendly and helpful. Maintanence came within 48 hours for any issue. I did have some loud neighbors at times but… Full Review ▶

Today Library Lofts overdrew our account an extra $300. We have checks out that are now facing the possibility of bouncing. Not only will that cause us trouble with the people whom the checks might bounce, but we will be nailed… Full Review ▶

While the building itself it adequate, I would NEVER recommend a lease in Library Lofts to anyone solely due to its manic and downright rude staff. Any question I have had over my past year lease has required a tortuous labyrinth… Full Review ▶

When I moved in initially, I was all caught up in the idea of moving into a downtown loft apartment and thought that the whole cement floor look and high ceilings with a view of downtown was cool. I quickly changed… Full Review ▶

We moved in despite of the bad reviews and have been fortunate so far. We looked all around downtown at approx. 10 lofts. This was the nicest, reasonably priced, and best location (2 seconds from I-35 and I-70). So far we… Full Review ▶

I have lived here since April 2005. For several months, they have been renovating the second floor for office space. Every morning at 7am and until about 6pm every night my apartment is nearly unlivable. Loud hammering, saws, banging, etc. makes… Full Review ▶

Library lofts is too expensive for what you get. Equipment in the weight room is always broken. The pool, besides being only a lap pool, is disgusting. I think they may just keep adding chlorine instead of cleaning the thing. The… Full Review ▶
