At first glance, this apartment building doesn't seem so bad, but once you get in, its really awful. The building itself is falling apart, we have had a window in our apartment that has not been able to stay shut for over 22 months and they can figure out how to fix it. We also have water leak in all the windows when it rains and the floors by the windows are completely soaked. There is water damage at the ceilings and the walls are moldy (covered up by white paint is the quick fix each time we complain about it). The bathrooms were neatly caulked when we moved in but once you are in there for a month or so and try to clean you realize that everything under the caulking is moldy. Everything they "fix" is just a cover up or the real problems because they dont want to actually spend money to fix anything! We have ants in the bathrooms and the kitchen for NO REASON and can t figure out where in the hell they are coming from. Probably the nasty rotting walls. They just fixed up the lobby so that when people come to look at apartments they are tricked by the look of the offices, but once you get in the elevators if you take a look around you will realize that they have only spent money on the entry way and not on the things the building actually needs. The elevators quite often take you up to the top floor (where no one is waiting) before letting you go down, and more often than not there is one that isn t running at all so it takes forever to get home or leave. Notice that all the floors are painted different colors or have different color carpet and our apartment has smelled like smoke after 22 months of living it in and the building is NON SMOKING!!! The only pluses to this building are the great views and the very friendly doormen and women. I CAN'T WAIT to get out of our lease (huge issues dealing with Planned property management which is why we are still stuck in here) and am counting the days until we leave!!!!! Save you self the pain and anguish and live elsewhere!!! Planned Property management is EXTREAMLY difficult to deal with, of course they are perfectly happy to get you in the building but after that, good luck working with them.
