I've been a Quincy resident for 30 years and a resident of Neponset landing for six years. Neponset landing is a pretty decent place. This property offers affordable rent units (it was built on marsh land and to build it was made to offer these units and is HUD Section 8 accepted. The good. Great pet friendly modern building with amazing views of Boston (Impress your friends on the 4th of July with all the firework displays you'll get to see). The grounds are unkempt well and haves a nice lighted walking path and dock next to Neponset River. In unit washer and dryer Dishwasher granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Shuttle to MBTA North Quincy redline station Monday through Friday. Fitness room media room lounge with pool table and a new barbecue patio. Unfortunately there isn't a pool :-(. The meh. No pool. Quirky designed building with flat painted walls. Old fashion thermostat for the central air heating/cooling unit which makes no sense for this kind of building. This is a Smoking allowed building, so cigarettes and marijuana sticks up the hallways and can come into your unit thru bathroom vent and front door. Maintenance added a charcoal thing in the bathroom and stripping to my door to cut it down but it doesn't stop it completely. Residents Smoke in the bathroom where they are not allowed because ventilation is connected to in each stack of units so it can stink up your unit. Have found traces of drug use in stairwells and Fire alarms occur in the building on an average of once a month mostly because people burn their food and ventilate the apartment by not just opening their windows when the smoke alarm goes off. (Opening the door to the hallway will set off the buildings alarm). That will have the fire department come if you have cable you can put on channel 11 to hear the reason for their dispatch. Only cable supplier is Xfinity Comcast. Some residents have no respect for where they live or lived, slamming doors, smoking, vandalizing gym equipment as well stealing gym equipment. Leaving trash in trash shout room that is to bulky or nasty when it should be brought down to the actual trash room at the lobby, last year had a bed bug inspection for first time in my 6 years of living here residents that move out leave unwanted items like beds and other things in trash shout room and area next to elevators with signs saying free to take. Neponset Landing Wish list A POOL! Cable options (it would be nice to have a choice of RCN or Verizon Fio's). Have a channel for surveillance at the buildings entrance. Extended hours for shuttle, water bubbler in gym, pool or hot tub, ATM drink and snack machine would be nice to have near the lounge or Lobby
