Bell North Shore puts Bell North Shore first. All the residents are secondary. Theres currently massive construction going on right next to the building, and they offered no solutions. Instead they raise the rent! See More

Hello, thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear you feel this way! Unfortunately there is little the team can do about the construction happening next door; we do apologize for any inconvenience this causes. If you have any questions about your renewal, the office would be more than happy to discuss with you! - Lindsay, Bell Customer Service

I like to live here for almost 3 years, but I was a little disappointed with the rules of COVID19. We were prevented from using the gym, the pool. You guys made people go outside our community. Many people went to bars, gym and restaurants and… See More

Thank you for your review. Our pool is a part of a HOA and unfortunately we were outvoted on opening the pool this year. Our gym has been opened by reservation only, but we did need to temporarily close it due to the ongoing renovations. We are hopeful to have it reopened soon! We do understand your concern in regards to high traffic areas. We do have a cleaner on site Monday-Friday and the team also cleans high traffic areas three times a day as well. Please reach out to the office if you have any additional questions or concerns!-Aleise, Assistant Community Manager

Hi there, we appreciate your comments but are very sorry to hear this. We understand the recent larger increase was because of a 3-month renewal rather than a longer-term option. If you are ever interested in reserved garage parking, please feel free to let the office know! The safety of our residents is a top priority, so management sends out notices about any coyote sightings just so residents can be extra cautious; unfortunately there is little the team can do about the animals. Please feel free to let the office know if there is anything you would like to further discuss! - Lindsay, Bell Customer Service

Thank you for your review! We do have designated smoking areas away from each of our buildings. We are a smoke-free apartment community and residents/visitors are required to be 25 feet from any of our buildings at our designated smoking areas before engaging in smoking a cigarettes. Please don't hesitate to reach out to the leasing office with your concern so that we can see if there is anything additional we can do to try to help resolve this. -Aleise, Assistant Community Manager
