Warren House Apartments
Resident · 2012 - 2017
DO NOT LIVE HERE! The apartments are old, from the 70's at least and the materials are questionable. The insulation in the apartments are AWFUL! There is no GAS, only electrical for all heating and cooling. HV/AC, Fridge, and WaterHeater all have to battle fiercely the Heat and the Cold during Summers and Winters. Your Electric bill is going to be far more than you'd expect. The insulation also applies to noise! You can hear your neighbors using their bathroom, it's so bad. Any noise in the hallway, can be heard, and the same for people being able to hear you from out in the hallway and in the adjacent apartments. The ownership/management has changed 5 times in the 5 years I've lived here. It used to be absolutely horrible trying to deal with apartment managers, but it has improved gradually. All the same, it is almost impossible to get ahold of apartment staff, as their number goes right to an answering machine (An actual machine, not voice-mail) which I presume they use to screen calls. It is very rare that anyone answers the phone and can will help, or answer questions, still. This complex used to take section 8, but no longer as of 2017. I thought this might make the noise and crime lessen, but it has not. I've had my car broken into and items stolen multiple times. Crime here has been scary at times and I know of at least one murder that has been committed here since I have been a resident. You can learn more about that by doing a Google search for "murder warren house apartments" and find news coverage. It has not been uncommon to hear fighting in the courtyard and people yelling out their windows to other people in other apartments or people who are out in the courtyard. The windows are drafty, and during the summer, it is not uncommon for ants to find their way into the complex through cracks and holes, even though they post notices regularly that they are spraying for bugs. There is much more I could go into, but I would seriously discourage anyone from taking residence here unless there is an absolute reason you might need to reside here, as is the case with myself. And finally, the apartment space is way over-priced for size of the apartments. Cramped tiny kitchens, very small living room space, and very little storage space. Beware, and read other reviews as well. Not many people have been a resident here as long as I have, but many complaints are similar.
