Resident 2019 - 2023

12/24/2023

Not worth it!

I lived at Buena Terrace for four years. The apartment was cute and newly furnished, the courtyard is a nice perk, and the location is pretty great for public transportation. Unfortunately, everything else was awful. We went a week without a shower, we went months… See More >

    So overpriced. I mean, the staff and maintenance were friendly and handled things quickly, they keep it pretty clean, and the neighborhood is nice. But the building itself is a wreck - so old, cage elevator, not enough laundry machines that are often broken, most… See More >

      My apartment was nice enough, but nothing fantastic for the price and area. My closest neighbor on my floor was a raging alcoholic who would come home drunk and try to break into his apartment because he lost his keys and occasionally try to… See More >

          Like some of the other reviews, when I first moved here I thought it was great.... until I realized that management/workers really doesn't care about tenants. It took nearly a month to fix a leak in the ceiling over my bathroom and my one closet.… See More >

            I feel obliged to give Horizon the credit they deserve from my experience. It's unfortunate that we often hear more complaints than compliments about business/customer service experiences, so I wanted to share some positive feedback. After being completely screwed over by another leasing agency… See More >

              I've lived her a month and moving here is now one of my biggest regrets. First off, moving in was a complete hastle the building wasn't helpful at all in the process. We were given very limited use of the freight elevator (which hasn't been… See More >

                Aside from the usual problems (elevator that smells like dead body and could plummit down the earth at any moment, freezing cold, burned out light bulbs, broken hand rails, FLOODED kitchen, warped hardwood floors, saying dogs are not allowed and then secretly changing it so… See More >

                I've lived here for 2 years, and while I cannot say that this is the best place I've ever lived, it is certainly not as bad as these other reviewers say it is! I give the building a B , the management team an A, and… See More >

                  I have lived here for one year. There are high points, but mostly low points. First, this is an extremely noisy neighborhood. Sirens CONSTANTLY, 10-12 times per day, and often at night. Secondly, the noise level within the apartment building is untenable. I can hear… See More >
