nuWestEnder • Resident • 2000 - 2010 Not Recommended
I was still at Parkwild when the place was bought out, but left in 2010. After eleven years, my apartment was literally falling down around me (broken down applicances, leaking ceilings with eventually mold, carpet in desperate need of cleaning if not replacement, clouded up windows that couldn't be washed, screens so torn up they weren't screens anymore, an air conditioner that only worked when it was cool outside, a furnace that only worked when it was warm outside, frozen water pipes in the laundry room kept barely alive by a constantly running space heater (around fifteen fire code violations, I believe), a deck held together by three nails, squirrel nests in the cable boxes, mice from all the construction, a neighbor that moved out after only three months but left behind his pet cockroaches for the rest of us, I could go on. The only thing that was still good was the paint...because I did it myself), but the new management would just shrug and said they couldn't repair anything until "renovations" started on my building. It became real clear real fast that what they really wanted was the leased tenants out of there so they could "renovate" and raise the rent. Sure enough, six months after I left the rent went from an average $550 a month to an average $800 a month. Yet, I still see these reviews popping up saying there are still all the same problems. It's heartbreaking, because once you're outside Parkwild is far and away the most beautiful complex in CB. But until these people finally get their act together, you have no cause or reason to be paying the kind of rent they charge now for a place that isn't much better than it was five years ago. Scan, select, discard and move on.
