Resident 2008 - 2023

Taken over by the drug dealers (and the insane)

I KID YOU NOT! DRUG DEALERS on multiple floors (the one on my floor is just opposite the elevator). PACKAGES STOLEN repeatedly (I now use an Amazon locker). SOMEONE SET HIS APARTMENT ON FIRE about 4 months ago (he's on the run with an arrest… See More>

    No no NO!

    Do not even think about moving here. My boyfriend lives here and it’s just so bad. The apartments are fine. The view is great but you cannot get hold of the staff. Nobody picks up the phone and they’re never available to address your issues.… See More>

      The security here is horsesh*t. Homeless people loiter at the entrance and slip in behind others while security sits at their desk and watches it happen. In the past two weeks alone I've had 4 packages stolen from the "secure mail room", at least one… See More>

        NON-WORKING ELEVATORS The building has 2 elevators for its residents and a freight elevator. November 2019 one of the 2 elevators died. And the building started replacing it. COVID hit in March 2020 and we have all been stuffed into ONE elevator because the freight… See More>

          Old run down building with great views And zero accountability from management. The views are not worth your apartment flooding in the middle of the night and being displaced for months. I am also dealing with MICE, Fox Plaza is so considerate that they lay… See More>

              I am a current resident of Fox Plaza and I DO NOT recommend living in this apartment complex. If finding random bugs and roaches on daily basis wasn't bad enough, the staff is unprofessional, rude and unavailable when you most need them. There was a… See More>

                  Pros: Amazing view of SF. In the center of Market street and able to walk, take Muni, Bart or any types of transportation to get around. Dog friendly building (can be bad for those who don't like dogs). Parking is available… See More>

                    The Fox Plaza (Essex) has gone to the dogs. Essex does not have a dog breed restriction therefore the building has several dangerous animals - pit bulls, 2 great danes and a doberman pincer. Be prepared for lots of dog poop and… See More>

                      Heading downhill (and near bottom). Huge number of Section 8 tenants (put in by the city), most of them looking like recovering? junkies foraging through the trash and picking up recyclables.

                        Fox Plaza is a rotting community. It wasn't bad to live in a few years ago, but management's decision to sublet to Community Housing Corp. has transformed it into Archstone-Lehman's -------in-the-sky. Want to get off the elevator to find cigarette butts on the floor, burns in the… See More>

                          I have drafted this review several times in my head. I really want to give a realistic view to people who are thinking of renting here. I do not think the apartments are worth the money. I have had a particularly bad experience and after… See More>

                            I don't think an anynomous, 2004 review that was from someone who never lived there and talks about suicide is a decent or fair review. Let's be fair and honest about these reviews people! Many significant improvements have taken place in the last… See More>

                              I moved back from the suburbs and was looking for a central location in SF that was walking distance to most places. This is it. Sure it's an older building but they are doing lots of upgrading and the halls are well maintained… See More>

                                I think it was built in the late 60's maybe early 70's. All of the new apartments are recently renovated and look great. It's a diamond in the rough. That maintenance has been very responsive and have fixed the problems quick to… See More>

                                  So just like most all the other ads mentioned, there are positives and negatives for living at Archstone Fox Plaza. I recommend this place if you consider yourself an urban trooper, but if you want silence, serenity, and considerate neighbors, don't come here. … See More>

                                                Not sure if it is deliberate, but Fox Plaza has been designed to maximize tenant turnover.
