Is not worth the price. Filthy environment and disgusting Capet and old elevator. Noisy Neighbors. Rude manager called Ellen. For what you pay for a studio here you could get one bedroom else we're. Nothing special here for what they charge you. Is not all fancy… See More

I've lived in worse places, but never paid so much for one. The management changed recently (its now called 1440 Beacon, instead of Sovereign Apartment), and promised lots of changes with a corresponding hike in rent. 6-8 months of paying higher rent and the "central air"… See More

I very much regret moving into this building. On the positive side, the location is fantastic and the renovated units are pretty decent. The larger one bedroom units have a lot of storage. With that, the management of this property is a disaster. I was told… See More

Rent this place and pay good money to lose your peace of mind - from the noise on Beacon street, and from the *HORRIBLE* management and Lee Torrey, the a passive aggressive manager who *WILL* make your life hell. Thank god I am out of here!… See More

The rooms are bright white and spacious, the location is wonderful. The manager, however, negates all of this. Other people have posted to this effect, and it is most definitely all true. I don't know if he's an Asperger's patient, a bully, or is angry that… See More
