Do not consider living here while ------------- is still the property manager. Wait until someone who actually cares about their residents replaces her. She does not hold herself accountable for ensuring quality maintenance and security is provided for the building. The apartment itself is nice. I have a great view and the layout is superb. Feels much bigger than the stated square feet. Nice kitchen, but nothing that wouldn't be found in any other recently built or renovated apartment in area. I like not having the expense of a pool included in rent. - Noise: I can sometimes hear my neighbors, mostly passing in the hall, which could be expected in this type of building. Can hear cabinets closing in adjacent apartments. - Grounds: Don't expect any green space. It's all paved with the exception of a couple planters. - Safety: You're on your own. Controlled access doors are almost always broken. Feel free to walk into the building any time. - Neighborhood: Great access to Metro and many bus lines. Giant & CVS next door. Downtown Silver Spring short walk away. - Maintenance: Nothing addressed proactively. Be prepared to frequently get after management to address issues since work is often shoddy and breaks quickly. Also the current culture here tolerates maintenance outright lying about doing work, even when that work is required by law or the lease. - Staff: The #1 biggest problem is the current property manager, -------------. Replace her with someone competent and the culture might change and this could be a really great place to live.
