Still pretty new but so far so good. I feel safe and like the ease of getting to and from the metro. The shower is not that good compared to the rest of the apartment features. There was no pantry in… Full Review ▶

An overall disappointing and frustrating experience - the on site management is nonresponsive and not proactive and we have had a serious leak with drywall and carpet damage for 10 months with no fix in sight. I would not recommend this… Full Review ▶

The management and leasing staff are absolutely terrible - which is too bad because the building itself and amenities are outstanding. They are inflexible when it comes to rules and while the concierge service is absolutely stellar, they are held hostage… Full Review ▶

Great apartment building overall. Convenient location. Friendly and courteous staff. Only minor complaints i.e. the gym is too small and the windows are very thin. The windows need to be insulated more against both the sound and the weather. Otherwise, amazing… Full Review ▶

I'm satisfied overall; however, I would like the community to only rent to regular residents and exclude the business renters as I tired of breathing cigarette smoke of smokers. I also believe that true renters who are paying $3,0000 per month… Full Review ▶
