I have recently moved at Zinc, and the team has been of a great help for all the paperwork and necessary documentation. Once moved in, i felt easily at home, the amenities are comfortable and cozy. The community is very nice and easy to talk to, most people here are very polite, ready to give a hand.

    Great location, highly professional and reliable staff, and beautiful apartments. The apartments are remarkably soundproofed, too- you can’t hear neighbors or any of the outside noise. The team here works very hard to ensure the grounds and common areas are well-kept, too.… See More>

      The location is terrific for accessing the T which easily opens up the whole city of Boston to explore. Over the last five years I have lived in apartments in Michigan, Tennessee and now Boston. Zinc is by far has been the best living arrangement.

        I’m particularly pleased with the maintenance service. The staff is incredibly courteous and friendly, promptly addressing any issues in our house. Since we have a no-shoes policy at home, we kindly request that anyone entering our room removes their shoes. The maintenance staff consistently checks with us whether they should take off their shoes before entering.

          I absolutely adore living at Zinc! The management consistently invests in maintaining the property's pristine condition, ensuring it feels as fresh and inviting as the day I moved in. The apartments exude tranquility, and the abundance of well-appointed common areas adds to the overall appeal. Being conveniently located across the street from a T station grants easy access to transportation, while the plethora of nearby restaurants and trendy spots for leisure activities makes it a vibrant neighborhood to call home. Plus, the fact that it's pet-friendly is simply the cherry on top. Maintenance requests are handled swiftly and efficiently, further contributing to the exceptional living experience.

            Although not the same as when I started, still a nice place to live, with office and maintenance staff as a highlight of the apartment building. In today's world, would recommend, though pricing continues to be something to consider given what is offered.

              Zinc has a great community and amazing staff. The building is always clean and maintained. Great amenities too. I love the neighborhood and the nearby park/places. The details and little gifts from the building makes them stand out as well.

                  When we moved in the front office team had an assistant manager and three people working. And the building was about half full. Now the building is at full occupancy and there is no assistant manager and only one person working out in the desk who has to do the job of three people. Greystar Corporate should be ashamed for overworking its staff and actually taking away the assistant manager position.

                        Overall very good. I love the neighborhood, the convenience of the apartment, the good maintenance and friendly staff. Some issues I have are: 1) Front desk is frequently empty 2) Floors carpets seem dirty. 3) Noise from commuter rail trains idling at night is very loud (unbearable with open windows; tolerable with closed) 4) Boiler problems and loss of hot water. 5) Should have more bike parking spaces in the parking lot.

                          Zinc is a very clean and well maintained apartment. It's bright and quiet because the sun is shining well. The staff are kind, too. Lechmere Station and Cambridge Crossing are right in front. My family is enjoying life here a lot.

                                  It's been okay so far, just a lot of changes. The building will lose some functions for some time but then back. Lastly, people complain about the slightest bit of noise, but will make a lot of noise themselves.

                                    This weekend alone one of the front elevators is broken (has been since Sunday) both of the garage doors are broken (have been since Sunday) and today when I was getting ready for work, there was no hot water to my apartment. (Which has been a recurring problem more than 5 times this year) Not exactly the experience I expect when paying $3500/mo for an apartment.

                                      Management is poor. Building is poorly maintained. Public areas, including carpets that are never cleaned properly and are falling apart, need to be replaced. No public spaces are cleaned regularly or appropriately. Boiler has broken 3 times this year. Management is visibly absent and there is no communication.
