We lived here for one year, from 2017-2018. We had a generally pleasant experience during our time there (w/some issues around noise and people smoking in neighboring apartments). However, the real problems occurred after we moved out. We moved out a month early and had prepaid… See More

I lived here for 2 years and moved out due to relocation (but would have left regardless). Pros: Casimir at the front desk is wonderful! The maintenance staff members are hardworking but seem not to get the resources they need to do a good job. The… See More

I have been around Kendall for a long time and have lived at all 3 of the major buildings in Kendall. They are similarly priced, the bottom line is: If you want a sleek building where nobody knows who are and you want to feel like… See More

The main issue with Third Square is the mix of long-term and short-term renters. The concierge staff is what makes the building feel like a community. The leasing office staff could care less about the living experience of long term renters which is a shame. You… See More

Thank you for taking the time to post your honest feedback. I do want our residents to be proud to call Third Square their home, and so I read every review posted about our community. It is important to know where our residents think we missed the mark, as well as where we have done well - so that we can improve Third Square for everyone. We have very strict procedures for noise complaints. Please always contact the leasing office with any specific issues. I'm glad to hear you've been overall satisfied during your time here, and I would be happy to discuss any of your concerns with you. You may contact me any time at [email protected] or at (617) 494-1194.

The staff do not really care about residents. They all act nice and friendly when showing the place. After you sign the lease, they can give a damn about anything you say to them. They lie and basically just try to take as much money off… See More

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback. The team and I at Third Square do take the time to read every review, and use the information to grow, make changes, and improve our community for everyone. As for your concern about pricing, we do adjust rates to best reflect the current market value for the types of apartments available. These rates can fluctuate daily, and we do our best to communicate rate changes to residents during the renewal process. Overall, the Cambridge and Boston rental markets have shown significant changes in the past three years, especially our neighborhood of Kendall Square, where the demand for housing has exponentially grown. If they have a noise complaint, residents should contact the concierge, who will address the noise issue as soon as possible. We have quiet hours, but expect that all residents respect their neighbors quiet enjoyment, no matter what time of day. We would be happy to discuss your concerns with you in person. Simply drop by the office, or contact me at [email protected] or at (617) 973-2238.

Bldg is new and apartment layouts are somewhat thoughtful. For the price, however, the closet space is disappointing. Similarly, kitchens and bathrooms are filled with Ikea cabinets which look OK, but aren t always the smartest use of space. Management seems keen on nickel-and-diming residents. Expect… See More
