Let me be clear, I love my actual apartment. My issue is the noise... which I believe is from the elevator. From the literal minute that I got the apartment, there has been a whirring noise. It goes off and on throughout the day, I've talked to people about it, and here we are over a month later.... and I'm awake because of it (it's 6 am). Initially, management claimed to fix the problem in January, citing a broken elevator, but I have been here for a little over three months! This is likely something that isn't fixable and all of the staff's promises feel like lies at this point. They claim the noise can be adjusted. I was given a "tentative" March 15 deadline, which was not met... then a "projected" March 29th deadline, which was not met. It's so upsetting to be lied to, which only makes waking up at 5 and 6 am even more maddening. Sleep is too important. If you are sensitive to noise, don't move here. If you come to see the apartment, make sure you listen out for noises when in the unit you want. The noise is less obvious on the weekend, and may depend on location in the building. Just do yourself the favor and make sure before signing a lease. As gorgeous as it is to live here, it isn't worth it.

Good morning, Thank you for providing feedback regarding your experiences at 2 Hopkins Apartments. We did have delays in the maintenance repairs to one of our six elevators, as you are aware thru multiple emails and conversations. Our vendor is currently working on a solution and we should be completed by April 8th. We are truly sorry and understand your frustrations with this situation. We are trying to get this expedited as quickly as possible and minimize the low humming and whirring noise. Again, we are very sorry for the inconvenience. We appreciate your patience while we finalize the solution. Take care, Christian Amrod 2 Hopkins Director
