I'm not sure why all these bad reviews are here. I'm guessing it was before the management changed. I live in this building and haven't had many problems. In the past year I lived here, elevator wouldn't open on the first floor once for 2 days.… See More

I've been renting here for almost a year (lease is up next month thank God). This place is disaster. Looks nice at first glance but the other building issues are not worth setting foot here. The guy that re-did the building 5 or 6 years ago… See More

The apartments in this building look nice because they've all been renovated, but trust that this building is not up to current standards. The building was built sometime between 1910-1926-- I've been told 1912, 1916 and 1926, specifically, but have not confirmed. The boiler system in… See More
