I am very pleased with the help I received from the management company, Samantha Young specifically. I needed help moving from another city and the help I received was so needed and valued. Moving is stressful - the staff really helped during this time.

Love the location, but maintenance and the office have been very slow when it comes to having issues taken care of. We have been ignored, accused, and left in the dark when it comes to an answer on when something will be fixed. See More

Located in the back corner of a building full of bars and restaurants, the entrance to Janus Lofts is nondescript but elegant. Upon walking in the door I was greeted with a stoic lobby reminiscent of the 1920s, and as soon as I saw the available… See More

Janus Lofts hasn't been updated in years but still retains its classic charm. Its dinginess is mitigated by its original features, like the high, tin stamped ceilings, big windows and classic wood staircase. However all of this could use some $$$$ for improvements. The apartment interiors… See More

We love the look and location, but not the noise level. Our loft has an industrial feel, and we love the convenience of being downtown and close to restaurants, shopping, activites, etc. However, parking spaces for guests are non-existent, which is inconvenient. See More

Thank you for your feedback and continued residency at Janus Lofts. We are continuing to work on noise barriers from the commercial space in the building and should be complete by summers end. We do now have parking options for guests, please reach out to the office directly for more information.
