Resident • 2012
Been here just about a month now, and it's been pretty good so far! Went through quite a bit of an ordeal with the leasing department due to tons of different circumstances that were mostly outside their control (ie: I'm Canadian and didn't have any credit history so needed to go with Insurent). Moving in was a piece of cake. Management has been great and very accommodating. We had some ugly mold / residue in the washing machine (apparently quite common with this model) but they sent at least 3 different people throughout the day to ensure it was taken care of and cleaned properly.
Otherwise my only real complaint is that all of the amenities for the building are not included (gym, pool and outside terrace). What's really annoying is if we want to bring guests to the terrace to hang out, BBQ or whatever, it costs something like $20 per person! That's extremely outrageous IMO!
Concierge has been great. We get a lot of packages delivered, some are quite large and they've brought them up for us.
Oh and finally - yes, it's cold and windy in this area. It's on the water and completely expected. Just putting that out there. I imagine it's going to be great in the summer though!
And yes, it's far from metro. The shuttle service is very convenient, but it is what it is. i personally ride my bike down the west side to Meatpacking every day. It's a great little trip!
