Resident • 2009 - 2010
When I viewed the unit where I currently live in the Silver Towers my first impression was ABSOLUTELY NOT. It is a tiny, tiny studio albeit with super nice finishes and I was certainly used to more space however I chose to overlook this because of the awesome amenities (super chic entertaining terrace, pool, gym, nice lounge, salon/spa etc)...well if you want to enjoy all these amenities BY YOURSELF then its a good deal. First off, these amenities are not included in the rent. They're an additional $750 (you can't even use the lounge if you don't join "club 7" so even if you don't want to use the gym you have to join). Not a bad annual fee for a gym/pool but bad if you don't like working out in apt gyms (which I don't even though this one is very nice). Secondly, they're a pain in the a$$ about guest fees, they're disorganized as to how to collect them and sometimes collect them after your guest is already in the facility and they don't offer you any complimentary passes. If you want to have anyone over in ANY part of "club 7" you have to pay $15 (even if it's just someone over to work on something in the lounge). Since I live in my bite size studio I obviously don't entertain there and my friends are weirded out that they have to pay to come over to sit on my terrace so pretty much I live over here in the river and talk to myself on my fancy terrace. I won't be resigning my lease.
