Resident • 2008 - 2015
As a resident, what Queenswood Apartments will not tell you is that they are part of a federal/state program providing reduced taxes in which they provide a large number of apartments to unqualified tenants that seem to be part of a "sober house" or "halfway home". You will be required to meet luxury requirements but they will not inform you that you may live next to, above, or below a crack head. Essentially, someone that does not meet the requirements that you had to meet in order to reside here.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in an elevator with your children in the morning heading to school with a crackhead in the elevator begging for change and dollars because its their birthday that reside in the same building as you? If you have then this is the residence for you. This has happened numerous times.
I have had a resident follow me to my bus stop on my way to work begging for change. I was led to believe that Queenswood Apartments offered luxury apartments that required that you meet certain requirements and made assumptions that only residents that met their predefined criteria would be living beside me. It was only a short period of time after moving in when I realized that this wasn't the case. I've been awoken in the middle of the night over a 4 hour tirade at around 2AM because 2 crackheads living below me were arguing over drugs and cash.
Ask prior to considering or signing off on rental agreements with Queenswood Apartments if they house tenants that do not meet the same requirements as you had enforced. You will deal with people begging you or your children for cash. There are plenty of shady characters throughout the buildings that don't meet the requirements that you were held accountable for, then reconsider if you still want to live here because it is not the luxury apartment atmosphere that they pitch to you. This is false advertising and you should avoid it.
This is expensive housing with crackheads where they enforce you to meet middle-to-high class income requirements only to live with the worst of society for their own tax break. Reconsider or at least ask your broker about the details above and to provide assurance in writing if they deny any of the above so that you don't regret this decision like I have.
