WORST management ever!!! My carpet is extremely old. I have been writing tons of emails to management asking for replace, but the best is they are doing is ignoring my request. I just cannot trust them, and do not find them… Full Review ▶

The area around is very nice. The bath rooms and kitchens need to be updated, not just new carpet and paint!!! The new condo going up on Drumm st. and all the noise that goes with it is very bad. For… Full Review ▶

They have the worst management possible in San Francisco. They are there to suck the money out of the tenants in whatever possible. When you take the apartment, the leasing office wouldn't provide you with all the details. When you want… Full Review ▶

Your view and proximity to Chinatown, North Beach, Ferry Building, etc with be the envy of your friends. Fantastic door staff, maintenance and management team. Parking is very expensive, like $275 /mo. There's a "free" strip on Sansome from Broadway to… Full Review ▶

I've looked around SF a lot and I love the location and apartment I'm in now at the Gateway. I look north on a high floor and the view of Coit Tower and the Bay is spectacular. Big windows, the best… Full Review ▶

20-25 Year old carpet that shreds when using vaccum; PARKING Expensive about $300 per month; NOISE - On-going construction this Quarter in Front Driveway - not necessary; GROUNDS - overwatered; low hanging branches; dead pine tree branches and pine needles and… Full Review ▶

this review will only be about the infestation. however, other aspects of this place also suck (for example, i had no natural sunlight for a year, because they were doing construction outside and there was scaffolding). anyway, cockroaches have always been… Full Review ▶

For about 14 months, they did spalling work. This involved drilling into the exterior building walls. Sometimes the noise was so loud that it shook my couch. We were required to keep all windows and balcony doors closed from 8 AM… Full Review ▶

This woman should be avoided at all costs. Insist on another agent if you visit the leasing office (not sure if they are any better but I know Phyllis is no good). She will say whatever she needs to do to… Full Review ▶

When you see the lobby area as you enter on Davis Court, you will have an indication how outdated the building is. Noise is worse here than anywhere I have ever lived. It is not uncommon to be awakened at 2:00… Full Review ▶

I lived at 440 Davis for 1 year. Building is in a great location, but is old and tired. Current construction on interior was very noisy. Interior of building looks like the 70's. Security in garage was terrible. Staff was friendly,… Full Review ▶

I've been having a tough time with construction noise. It has been going on for the last 7 months, and it has been extended. I definitely think they should slash the rents for the terrible inconvenience they have put us through.… Full Review ▶

I've been here a year and a half in the Dana building, and here are the pros and cons from my point of view: PROS: - Safer neighborhood than many (check out SF crime maps) - Quiet on weekends except for… Full Review ▶

Yes, I really did see a mouse in basement within the last month. However, the real cockroches seem to be in the front office. They assess UTILITY PASSTHROUGHS, allege tenants are using more power (although THE GATEWAY has recently installed more… Full Review ▶

Before we signed our contract, our apparently scatterbrained and rather slow
agent led us to believe construction in our area would be over in October.
Yet here we are in mid-November and the bone jarring construction continues.
This week we found out that construction… Full Review ▶

- Water temperature fluctuates significantly MANY times during shower, including anytime anyone in the building flushes their toilet.
- Fitness center does NOT actually come with the building/apt. It???s an entirely separate entity for which you pay $200-300/mo.
- Leasing agent misled me… Full Review ▶

I moved into the Golden Gateway Apartments about six months ago and think it???s great! The location is so convenient if you work in the Financial District, about a 5 minute walk. I currently live in the Davis building and have… Full Review ▶

I agree with the previous feedback. This is a terrible place. The leasing agent, Phyllis is terrible. She is pretty old but very pushy!

I had to send her a notice saying that I will be filing a law suit if… Full Review ▶

Let me make clear that while I have never rented at GG, my experience there with their leasing office was enough to convince me that living there would be terrible. My leasing agent was Phyllis (PJ), so if you are considering… Full Review ▶

scarey work to be done on two buildings. noise, dust, people working in your apartment, up to 13 months of construction. must keep windows closed during this period.

I just moved here and I must say the property is close to perfect. Great location, Safeway, starbucks, fitness center, and Embarcadero are all really really close. My only sore spot was the leasing agent. While she was young and pretty… Full Review ▶

I've lived in two different buildings in the last five years, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Beautifully maintained, repairs are made almost instantly, spotlessly clean hallways and outdoor areas -- not even any pigeons because it's kept so… Full Review ▶

I just recently moved from the Buckelew building that is part of the Golden Gateway Center. I lived there for 3.5 years and I never had a problem. The management staff was wonderful and any problem I had was fixed the… Full Review ▶

I live in the Macondray building where each unit is an end unit. I have a lovely view of the bay, bridge and ferry building with a park below. One entire wall is windows. Door men are helpful, people in the… Full Review ▶

I moved here in Nov. 2004 and I don't plan to renew my lease, mainly because of the noise from the fire trucks (station is down the block) and traffic from the Embarcadero and the windows are… Full Review ▶

I've been living here for over a year now. And honestly, the best thing this place has to offer is the location and the view. The folks managing the property should seriously think about how to improve their services and image.… Full Review ▶

This complex represents one of the poorest examples of an apartment community one could possibly imagine. From snooty, downright rude residents to chain smokers neighbors, and an illegal oriental massage parlor in one of the units it is defiantely not somewhere… Full Review ▶

cannot beat the location if you work in the financial district. Area is getting better since the waterfront is improving every year?especially now with the ferry building block away. Weekends are kind of dead.
Views are amazing.

I moved in here about 5 weeks ago. Of the four other complexes that I have lived in, low-priced student apartments in college, I can honestly say this is by far the worst complex I have ever lived in. Needless to… Full Review ▶

I have lived here for one year. It has good neighbor, but, sometimes a little bit noise at midnight ( street cleanning). I think this is a safe area. The security guard is friendly, but often disappear when he is on… Full Review ▶

This place is ok. But I´d expect better amenities and carpeting for the price. The kitchen and bathroom look like they could be redone. I could use a microwave for the rental price. And security guards frequently disappear - don´t know… Full Review ▶

Impressive views, ideal location, and reasonable rents inspired us to move here. Since then, we have dealt with a long series of small irritating things that make me dislike this place. The hallways frequently smell with garbage. The recycling bins in… Full Review ▶
