The noise ordinance in the building is not upheld by the security or the management staff. Nothing gets documented, parties go on until 2:30 am, no one is held accountable! If you are looking for a “young professionals” building this is not the one. IfSee More >

I don't feel really safe in this building. They have no security and it seems like everyone just walks in. They made us get key fobs, but the only reason you need them is to get into the laundry room. Now we have daily foreignersSee More >

I regret moving here 100%. I really feel unsafe living here and I feel as though my personal space has been violated. The doormen are judgemental and do not do a very good job at regulating who comes in and out of the building. AllSee More >

We've lived in this building since 2010 (no we're not section 8/low income residents). The maintenance and security are great and very reliable. I would not suggest anyone live in this building unless they don't mind dealing with a terrible, unfriendly, unaccommodating management team -managementSee More >

This place is perpetually finding new ways to suck worse. The management seemed to delight in being completely unhelpful to tenants. The halls were constantly filled with my neighbors' marijuana smoke, there was construction night and day. There are no "doormen," as the previous reviewsSee More >

After getting the move in kinks worked out, everything has been great. The doormen are so friendly, the package room has been organized (even given the volume they receive) and the activities are such a nice add on. I would recommend to any recent gradsSee More >
