My experience at Harvard Towers has been awful. The community has started a website to document the maintenance and code violation issues, which you can see at www(dot)295harvard(dot)com. In brief: there has been a broken elevator for about a year, and it still won't be fixed… See More

Absolutely terrible experience living at Harvard Towers-- don't dare move here! I liked the apartment's size and location, but unfortunately have found that the building management is totally lackluster and refuses to fix even the simplest of maintenance issues. The building's elevator has been broken for… See More

The location is great but the building staff is a complete disaster. They let code violations pile up, allow packages to be stolen on a daily basis from the unlocked front door, and have not fixed the broken elevators despite being out of service for 6… See More

We were the first tenants to live in our apartment post-renovation. Pros: the apartment itself is nice with air conditioning, dishwasher, and lots of natural light. We have loved the outdoor porch. The floors slightly slope in some places, but not terribly noticeable. Really easy to… See More

I have lived at Harvard Towers for about 3 years now. The apartments are clean and nice, but unfortunately the management is an absolute disaster. Maintenance issues take months to fix, and the staff is not very courteous when problems arise. Upkeep of the building is… See More

This used to be a very nice building at a good price. I got evicted along with everyone else, but I was happy to hear they were doing renovations. The building had (still has) one major problem: horrible heating/A-C units. There's a unit in each bedroom… See More

100% agree with the previous reviewer. Callous and unprofessional termination of all leases in the building on very short notice. Beware-- the management doesn't care about tenants at all.

I second the previous reviewer. Very late and unprofessional notice of lease non-renewal after years of paying rent on time and keeping my rental unit in great shape. Renter beware: the owners may decide to just kick everyone out (again) on a whim!

I think Harvard Towers is a great place to live! The executive management is in Boston and the superintendent lives on-site. They offer parking underground for only $90.00 per month. A STEAL for Cambridge. They also have 10 guest spaces behind the building that can be… See More
