Resident · 2017 - 2019
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 get anywhere is very accessible to the T, Whole Foods, and within walking distance to Kendall and Harvard Square. Cons: Building management and maintenance timelines are extremely lackluster. Building issues such as broken elevators take months to repair with little or no communication. Laundry occasionally goes down completely and a few of the machines take double the time listed to run a load of wash. Reaching out to management for a Guest Parking pass typically does not get a response. Renewing a lease, took the management team months after our initial lease ended to prepare the renewal paperwork for us, even after multiple attempts to contact them. Overall, really happy with the location of the building the past few years, but ready to move on for a less expensive location with more amenities and better management.
