Why won't habitat company appoint a good, professional and humble staff. Rent in this building is enormous then why can't they invest in hiring good employees. Security, mail room staff, management office is filled with rude and terrible employees. In fact engineers and cleaning staff are… See More

The pictures I have included should speak for itself. The owners have been lucky because tenants usually move after 1 year of renting. These visuals show a snapshot of the conditions we have been forced to live for over 5 years now. We have no rent… See More

This place has very good location, excellent maintenance crew, and very poor management. They lure you in with teaser rents and then at first renewal your rent jumps by double digits (percentage wise). This means new residents can get an apartment identical to yours for hundreds… See More

I can easily say this is the worst place I have ever lived. You can easily get a cheaper place with amenities and central air. However, cockroaches are included in the rent. Also, maintenance will enter your apartment on multiple occasions without prior authorization. Which can… See More

Columbus Plaza is an old, dingy building with very expensive apartments and no utility is included in the rent. There is no pool or spa and just a tiny gym. There is a fire department right next to the building and IT IS LOUD!!! They have… See More

The location and room sizes are the only positive of this apartment. The more frustrating parts are the management (especially the Maintenance Manager, who is particularly rude and inhospitable) and the parking garage. Their maintenance crew will enter your apartment without permission, there will be loud… See More

The noisiest neighborhood I've ever lived in. Which came first--the apartment building or the big fire station across the street? No matter which way you'll face, you'll hear three to four fire engines every 20 minutes at night with sirens blaring. It's annoying and frustrating. WHY… See More
