PROS: Apartments and amenities are top rate; staff is friendly and helpful; maintenance is the best. The building is still new and is physically noteworthy. The views are fabulous. All common areas are well appointed, accessible and comfortable. Materials are high-end reflect a distinct aesthetic. CONS: Noise. The building's shared ventilation system transmits cooking smells and noise from one apartment to the next; management says the sounds are muffled (so is tinnitus), but too often they are loud and persistent. Excessive barking, which can go on for hours can be maddening. Security has diminished markedly in the past several months. Indifference. Turnover is high, preventing the development of a sense of community. Many residents are students who move in and out throughout the year (turnover on my floor alone was 70% from May through September). The capital concerns of the building's corporate ownership undermine the concerns of tenants and management; they seem to care only for maintaining high profit margins. Cocooned. Because of the venting system, the building is sealed, and residents have no access to fresh air inside their apartments. Nor are there any common, outdoor spaces that are private and secure. (But there is an indoor dog park.) These annoyances?especially the frequent and persistent noise?discredit the building's claims to luxury and mar its uniqueness.
