This place is a hub for smoke. My apartment smells of weed all the time. The management is not taking any action, in fact they suggested me to break the lease rather than finding a solution. The management is poor. Their service is very poor. I… See More

Please improve the selection process for prospective tenants. There is nothing wrong with being selective.. absolutely no reason why some of the tenants rival the homeless population. Also improve upon the facilities after all it's 2017. Air quality not good either. Love the doormen See More

It is time for this management company/Habitat to step down. The elevators have been broken for way too long! There is absolutely no urgency to get them fixed correctly. Band aids no longer work.
