Lovely quiet community in a great Brookline neighborhood. Excellent management and maintenance -- walk to all kinds of restaurants and stores, just across the street from the C line Fairbanks stop. Couldn't be better!

    Quiet community. Allows dogs(we don't have one). Brand new elevators and social room. Guards are nice. Tenants on the most part are friendly. Pool on the roof and gym room on top floor. Location is fantastic.

      This apartment building is pet friendly and the staff are excellent. Carley and her team do an excellent job in maintaining the building and the services. Garage renovation was a huge undertaking last year. The new resident lounge and mailroom is excellent.

        Great, spacious units with ample sunlight, AC, and friendly staff. As the building is not modern, maintenance issues happen frequently and are 50/50 on resolution. The manager here is phenomenal, very professional, responsive, kind and helpful. Concierges are the same.

                Good so far however we were not told there would be the garage repair before moving in. A family is bedridden due to health condition and the repair noise has been extremely disturbing. Staff and management are all excellent.

                          I am new resident. I just moved in I didn't get a chance to see or talk to my neighbor. As a location is convenient. But the apartment needs total renovations to be done. The balcony door has air leaks strongly.

                                            The management is great. They have exercise room and a swimming pool on the roof. They have 24-hour package acceptance system, and also on-site workers fixing things. However the rent is much higher than the nearby apartment.

                                                Everything is wonderful except cold in winter. Too cold and heat problem is exiting. Window glass is so thin and cold winds comes in from every window. Maintenance is required for this problem. There is no window blind even though we requested.
