Resident 2012 - 2015

3/13/2015

Despite major renovation five years ago, this is still a 100-year-old building with major water leaks (some units have had floors replaced three times), black mold, no ventilation in units (no active fans), inadequate ventilation in hallways (foul smells linger 24 hours a day), major… See More>

      If circumstances kept me in Boston, I would have never left the Longwood Towers. Everything about it was a wonderful experience. Meredith, the leasing manager, worked very hard to make things perfect for us. The concierge staff is incredible and the valet… See More>

        When we started looking for apartments in Brookline, we were turned off by the first few. Brookline is an older town with that old charm, with that being said, many apartments in the area have not been updated and are really not worth the money.… See More>

          I stayed here while working in Boston. The apartment was great! It was all redone in 2010- so everything was updated - and the location worked out really well for me because I liked the residential side of Brookline while being almost steps from Boston.… See More>

            Perpetual construction, poor quality.

            Great location, with an enticing lobby. But if you look further, you will see that it is falling apart. In mid 2008, they changed direction and started to actually address some of the problems, The result is that the entire grounds are dug up, and… See More>

              Lived here for about a year. Once I moved in, after asking if construction was going to take place and receiving "no" for an answer, the construction began outside of my apartment. From November - March, we had a tarp over our windows,… See More>

                Things are picking up!

                In the beginning of the condo conversion process, there wasn't very much of a plan or coodination between the seller, construction, and residents. Things have gotten much better. Construction quality and coordination has improved dramatically, the concierge service is second to none, and it's architectural… See More>

                    We lived here last year. Great location. Construction is poorly managed & is cutting corners. Paint over MOLD does NOT fix the problem. Water damage will continue regardless of fancy finishes until probelm is resolved. Look for waterfall in the front lobby. Management… See More>

                      I have been leasing and living here at Longwood Towers for approx. 3 yrs. Since my stay, they have started construction on the place to make it into a very nice condo. I had a chance to visit the sales office to view one of… See More>
