Resident 2020 - 2021

Don't move here. Management is unspeakably inconsiderate and doesn't give a ---- about its tenants. They scheduled extremely disruptive construction work on the building to start at 8am daily for months, preventing sleep and working from home.… See More>

    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… 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… 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. … See More>

            Now called 1440 Beacon, the place is a mess. They have tried to update things and you will go in there thinking they are really fixing up the place, but don't let it fool you. We had issues from the very start. First, the heat… See More>

              After so many years I left the nightmare in Sovereign Apartment, I decided to write down things happened to me. Be fair enough, the management there is not bad. I got every package, I got response very quickly once I requested. BUT once, I put… See More>

                I hate this place. It is under new management and they are just as bad as the old management, just in different ways. I canNOT wait to move out. They wake me up before 9am with drilling/sawing/hammering because the place is such a pit and… See More>

                  Great location, new management

                  I have lived at 1440 Beacon St. for almost 5 years and never had one problem. Sure, I heard lots of horror stories about Lee. He would do crazy things like fire the entire maintenance staff the day before Christmas. And you were not allowed… See More>

                    Stay away from here - A nightmare of an experience!!!

                    Horrible nightmare is what I would describe the experience here - a sheer waste of the otherwise nice building and apartments. All because of the management, don't believe the other guy that lee Torrey has been removed - he is very much there, maybe… See More>

                      I am writing this review to let everyone know that Lee Torrey is gone and the property managment has been taken over by a new team including the realtor, Bryce. They are well aware of the previous issues and have done a great job… 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>

                            Everything bad that has been said about this place is true. Don't even consider renting here. Granted the apartments are sort of nice and that is how I fell for it, but the management is horrible and it makes the entire living experience a… See More>

                              I've lived in the sovereign for slightly less than a year now and could not possible recommend against it strongly enough. The apartments are fine, it's not too overpriced, but it is managed incredibly poorly. The only way to contact the building manager is by placing… See More>

                                  If you want to live in peace, consider other buildings in the area. It's just not worth it.

                                  I completely agree with the previous review. The place is nice. But the manager, Lee Torrey, is a very unpleasant person, and a horrible landlord/manager.

                                    this place really to me is like a massive ball of illegalities. I strongly believe that the superintendent of the building shows signs of serious bi-polar tendencies and has a very explosive explosive attitude.
