  • The apartment building has improved greatly under Bozzuto management. The wifi in common areas has improved and more events have been coordinated for the residents. The building's amenities are second to none, as is the gym. Not only are there many cardio machines, free weights, a bench press and a squat rack, there are fitness classes hosted weekly in the gym. In terms of bang-for-your-buck this building can't be beat

  • Great location, building & apartment for a good price. We were looking for a unit in Federal Hill to access 95 and 83 that was in an apartment building with available parking, great amenities and at an affordable rate. We felt like 1111 was the best fit for us and have had a great experience.

    Bethesda Place

    Bethesda, MD 20814

    My wife and I have rented at Bethesda Place for five years now, in two different apartments. We have always liked the cheery and helpful staff and the speedy service for all maintenance requests. The apartments are larger than many nearby complexes and the building is quiet and well-appointed, though it was built before developments started adding pools, rooftop decks, large gym areas and other amenities. The reasonable [by Bethesda standards, anyway] rents reflect this. Currently there is a lot of construction nearby but this will likely continue throughout the area due to the upcoming Marriott project. Overall, we still give it a big "thumbs up".

  • Nice location, but rental price is high in this neighborhood. Good for commuters. Unsure about public school system. Currently do not have a child who goes to school. Restaurants and markets are nearby which makes it convenient.

  • I enjoy living at the Catalyst. It is a nice community and very conveniently located, you can walk to the Metra, CTA, 3 major grocery stores and the best restaurants. The staff is friendly. The apartment amenities are up to date.

  • Very quiet neighborhood and community. The carpets in the hallways are quite dirty because it actually tracks into my unit. Carpet cleaning and a fresh coat of paint in the hallways would be nice. Cleaning the fire doors regularly would also be nice.

  • Celtic Crossing is a great place to live, the apartments are beautiful and brand new. All appliances work great and overall a quiet place to live. I would recommend this apartment complex to all who are looking for a place to live in St. Charles, it is in a great location close to everything.

  • The staff was easy to work with and very accommodating during my move in. I have only been here a month, but I would recommend this apartment to anyone. The location is perfect and the building is brand new!

    Claremont on the Square

    Exton, PA 19341

    We recently sold our house in Malvern and were looking for temporary housing while building a new home in Chester county. After checking out some other apartments, it was an easy decision to go with Claremont on the Square. The folks in the rental office, especially Cheran have been wonderful. Guiding us thru the selection process and assisting with our move in. The few times we've had to report an issue the maintenance team has fixed it the same day. We love it here.
