Resident 2021 - 2024

3/27/2024

Resident from 2021-2024. Middle of the road place.

Paper-thin walls! If you’re sensitive to noise, walls are really thin. I can literally hear my neighbors conversation, every single footstep above me, even my upstairs neighbor TV (and it’s not even turned up to an absurd level). Place also has issues with roaches, I’ve had my place serviced 3 times. The building is old and not worth the rent that is being charged. My rent is increasing from $1,535 —> $1,897! Insane. I have been a resident for 3 years, so you’d think that would account for something. Middle of the road place, but surrounding area is great!

    Resident 2021 - 2022

    3/10/2022

    For what you pay, you can find so much better. My rent is going up from $1489 to $1615 and nothing is being updated. All appliances are easily 10+ years old. No ice makers in the fridge. The counter tops were falling apart when I moved in. Old pet hair from the previous tenants was painted over in all the vents making them impossible to clean and a fire hazard. The floors are extremely squeaky and the walls are so thin I can hear my neighbors sneeze and their phones ring. In the winter, the heat doesn’t get turned on until enough people beg the building engineer to turn it on. When the heat is on, it’s so hot that you have to simultaneously have your AC unit on or windows open (only upping your utility bill). There’s no thermostat to control the temperature of your apartment. Packages don’t get delivered 9.9/10 times - I’ve had to have everything shipped to my boyfriend’s place because I’ve dealt with numerous items just not showing up. When people complain about it, all the property management company said was “find somewhere else to ship things to, not our problem” There’s no where secure… See More>

      Resident 2019 - 2021

      7/17/2021

      There are so many issues with this PPM property they need their own categories. - Utility fees Before signing the lease, I was told the utility fees are around $70-90, however they charged as high as $140 during the winter and $105 during the summer. - Superintendent Superintendent (Ovi) is never around. His contact number is a Google number which goes directly to voicemail and he never picks up his phone. You have to leave a voicemail and if he deems your request appropriate he might show up unannounced in a few days to fix your problem. Otherwise, he will never show up or even acknowledge your call. During the severe snowstorm, the whole block (Barry) was shoveled except our building. During heavy rains, there was a giant pond in front of the building, which made getting in and out of the building impossible and completely inaccessible for some individuals. After the rain(s) too the carpet in the vestibule reeked for DAYS like raw sewage. Switching to winter issues, during the extremely cold days, you have to deal with extreme cold for a few days until he gets enough complaint calls to turn on the heaters. - Elevators Almost all… See More>

        Resident 2018

        11/8/2018

        This was our first apartment together and we really enjoyed our time there. Planned Property Management is a great rental company and they took care of us first time renters very well. They found a place that was within our budget that included some extra amenities we weren't sure we could get in our price range. We will definitely be recommending them to any friends who are in need of a new place. While living there we enjoyed a very clean building. The lobby and hallways were always spotless. The utilities always worked as did the laundry room. Machines were in good working order and the laundry room was well tended to. We were very happy to live in a building with laundry as well as parking! Carlos, our super, was great and very attentive. He quickly responded to any requests, fixed them perfectly, and was just very pleasant all around. Little thing like that can make all the difference, especially when you are trying to make a nice home for yourself. The location was also wonderful. Again, we weren't sure we would be able to afford in this neighborhood, but it was no problem with PPM! We loved getting… See More>

          10/22/2018

          The apartment is in a great location. I love living less than a block from the lake. It provides a nice area to walk when it's not too cold out. There are also lots of conveniences a little more than a block down the street. Broadway is full of things I need on a regular basis including a good grocery store and lots of public transportation. There are also gyms, banks, and drugstores close. Lakeview has a lot of things going for it including lively nightlife and lots of good restaurants. It also feels very safe up here. The side streets are very beautiful as are the walking paths along the lake. I have really enjoyed my time as a resident of this neighborhood so far. Our building engineer, Carlos, is very nice. Every time I've had a request, he completes it in a timely manager. I feel well taken care here and can see that same care extended to the rest of building. It is nice and clean. The other tenants also seem to enjoy living here. Everyone is very friendly yet respectful. The building is nice and quiet at night despite being the middle of such a busy… See More>

            Resident 2015 - 2018

            7/21/2018

            The location is great! Right by the lakefront and extremely close to lots of awesome stores. We ha grocery stores. We have coffee shops. We have restaurants. We have it all u. here! It's a little more than a block to a main street full of good stuff. We are literally around the corner from Intelligentsia. Nothing like grabbing a cup of delicious hot coffee before boarding one of the many buses that run through the neighborhood. It's all so easy in Lakeview! The building staff is incredible, nice and caring! I there is something we need, it is done by the next day, if not sooner. The entire building is treated with a lot of care. How many renters can say that! Every common area is spotless. The apartment was in great shape when we moved in. It's a joy living here, it really is. Besides an awesome building engineer, we have laundry and parking included in the rent. So again, we don't have to worry about finding parking or lugging a bunch of clothes halfway around the world. Moving into this building eliminated stress in our lives, not added to it. Isn't that the way it should be!
