Does anyone find it strange that there are multiple glowing reviews posted on the same day? I am pretty sure that they were posted by one of the two new managers in the building.<br><br>But on to my review, I have lived here since July 2006. Here is the downlow on the building:<br><br>Good things:<br>-Building is newer (built 2003) and is very clean<br>-The location is great- right across from the U stree metro<br>-Building amenities are pretty good, although broken amenities (such as broke rooftop grill or exercise machines) do not get fixed very quickly<br>-Some of the building staff are very friendly and responsive<br><br>Bad things:<br>-If you have a car, you may have a problem. Parking here costs about $200/month unless you get a deal. Since the 1300 block of U street is zoned commercial, you cannot legally get a street parking permit. So either fork over $200/month, or loose the car.<br><br>-Some of the staff are not so great. All of them in general are gossipy and talk ---- about other staff and even residents. To be honest, many people think the infamous Dawn is a bit on the fake and flaky side. She is very devisive-one of the leasing agents (who happened to be the most gossipy one), recently transgered to another property because she could not tolerate Dawn anymore.<br><br>Some of the desk staff spent the majority of their shift with all the lights off and sleeping (not exagerating).<br><br>-I think this building is starting to get alot of turnover. The newer leasing office recently started posting building ads on craigslists. I personally think CL is a desperate move for what is supposed to be a luxury building. For folks thinking of moving here, that means you should be able to bargain.<br><br><br>-If you are terribly sensitive to noise, do not live here. The windows seal out almost everything. But it is at 14th and U....there is going to be some noise.
