Resident • 2005 - 2007 Not Recommended
Management raised rents prior to tearing up nearly all of the exterior of our buildings environment in this past year to put in new septic and drainage. We have received no compensation for this incoonvenience. Quite literally we live in a construction site for 5 months. This place is situated on the bay and in a bad storm the seawall is definately seriously compromised as the ocean surges toward the property. It needs repair and the Army Corps, DEC etc. has been sluggish with permits so it remains problematic without repair. I can tell you this IS a major problem for parking in the lot that is vulnerable to seawater and also for travel in and out of this complex since Candee Ave gets flooded as a matter of rule.If you park in this lot and a storm catches you by surprise you will not get your car out! Don't be fooled. If you think you get a good rent to start with the pattern here is to get people in and out just like a restaurant trying to make their day. You cannot get comfortable here since the raise in rents typically gets prohibitive so people are forced out.Rents seem set according to whim! I have seen many tenants having to downsize here as a result of what seems to me a crazy rent structure. They also rent out furnished rooms on a daily basis like a hotel. This creates a transient feeling to the place. Uncomfortable at best for anyone wanting a real "home". On the surface you can get mesmerized by the view. Be careful if you choose to live here.
