The building is older but the apartments are very spacious. There is parking on-site but also walking distance to mass transit. Convenient to several grocery store and other shopping. The current office staff is friendly and helpful along with maitence.

    The community is a concern because there is alot of crime going on in Columbia Heights. The security of the gates and the perimeter of the building may need to be updated. Neighbors could be closer? MM

                Facilities are excellent and office staff are amazing. Maintenance staff are great and respond quickly. The management company raised our rent almost 40% in one year, so we are being forced to move out at the end of our current lease.

                            Overall my experience has been uneventful but my roommate and I have had several packages come up missing in the last 5 months. Other than that everything is fine. I think some consideration should be put into solving the package receiving issue for future residents.

                                            First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to post such a detailed review. It is extremely valuable for us to hear directly from our residents. As disappointing as it is to know that your stay here isn't up to our standards, your concerns regarding the maintenance issue, as well as the manner in which situations were handed during your residency are being taken very seriously. We will be sending another notice to residents to refrain from propping doors open. I’m so sorry that we weren’t able to provide you with a 5 star experience. Please let me know if you’re open to further discussion about this. Sincerely, Hallie Aden, Property Manager

                                            Management office was totally disorganized from day one. My tour was double booked and getting my lease was a nightmare - they sent me several copies with incorrect info. On move-in my apartment was dirty and had broken floor tiles. Do not rent here.

                                              We regret to hear that you had a negative experience with us, but would appreciate the chance to turn your experience around. Falling short of meeting your expectations is not to the standards we strive to achieve, and we humbly ask for the opportunity to make this right. Thank you providing this information so we can improve upon our services. We hope to hear from you soon. Best, Monica Majano, MPMajano@ColumbiaUptownApt.com

                                                It has been a great experience in just applying. Ikea was very knowledgeable of the property and the process, but overall kind and approachable which is very hard to come by these days. Also, the property seems to be clean and quiet.
