Loud parties happen frequently. AC and elevator sometimes can't work. The whole neighborhood is really noisy for the next building is under construction. Extremely bad experience. Our neighbors can not have their deposit back. See More

I'm very sorry to read that you're unhappy. We did have a leak recently from a pipe bursting due to the extreme cold weather in December. It was not seepage; it was a domestic water line, and the problem has since been corrected. If you have any questions, please call us at 617.731.2050. Thank you.
