Resident 2014 - 2016

12/5/2016

I've lived in many different apartments in Portland and none of them compare to the ease and comfort of Back Bay Tower. My previous apartments have been owned by property management companies around the city and landlords that live out of state. The companies have… See More >

    I have lived at BBT for 4 years now. Having resided in numerous rental properties throughout the past 20 years, the overwhelming difference comes down to people - the property management staff. Without question, Amy has gone above and beyond to make sure… See More >

        I have been living in Back Bay Tower since April of 2014. It has been a wonderful apartment experience for my family and I. When we were first apartment hunting, it was very difficult to find a place that accepts dogs in downtown Portland. However,… See More >

              The Back Bay Tower deserves nothing less than five stars in every possible area. As a property manager and landlord myself, I understand the industry well and was very picky in my search for an apartment in Portland, especially because I had to find a… See More >

                  Choose Back Bay Tower if your search is for a total living experience! When i signed my first lease at BBT i needed assistance to walk, required oxygen therapy and a caregiver, to provide personal care. Three years later i became eligible for… See More >

                          I have had the pleasure of living in the Back Bay tower a couple times in the last 10 years. I found the apartments very spacious clean and comfortable. The only complaint would be that the manager --------, whom I loaned $1500.00 to,… See More >

                                  Biggest gripe is management. Very nice when showing apartments - after you've moved in, quite a different story. Very unfriendly especially if you ask for any type of help. Always a scowl on their faces - I'm thinking so this way you… See More >
