Hi Michael, We strive to make Tower a great place to call home and are sorry that your experience living here lately has not lived up to your expectations. We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback regarding these experiences. As you know, we are a pet friendly community. Unfortunately there are some accidents that occur occasionally however we do our very best to clean up any mess within a timely manor. We sympathize with the inconvenience associated with a temporary water shut off however due to the age and design of the building it is inevitable. We ensure that water shut offs only occur when absolutely necessary and provide ample notice to all residents. I'm sorry to hear that you are contemplating not renewing your lease with us and would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you and identify solutions to make your living experience more enjoyable. Please reach out when you have a moment to discuss further at [email protected] or at 510.523.4466.

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback and I'm sorry to hear that you're frustrated with the service you have received. I take a lot of pride in keeping everyone happy, while still treating everybody with an equal level of respect and fairness. I would like to address a few items you mentioned in your review. In regards to the elevator, I just received word from our vendor that the job will be completed by the end of this month. In the meantime, we do have a second operational elevator. Although I recognize that this is not as optimal as running both, it's temporary. I truly do care for all the residents, and I acknowledge and agree that the best bottom-line driver is to take good care of residents and ensure their longevity. During this transitional phase in management, it's natural that there are some operational hiccups, but I am trying very hard to make sure the issues are prioritized and handled as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our end goal is to make sure our residents have great experiences while living at Tower, and again, I apologize that this was not the case with you. If you would like to further discuss any of the items you mentioned in detail please stop by the office on Monday-Friday during business hours, or feel free to call as well. Thank you, Awet
