First, Essex House is a dangerous place to live due to the nearby police/county/state police interacting with protestors. This means very loud announcements late in the night (LRAD) often followed by flash bangs. Explosives don't just wake you up, they flood your body with adrenaline. Tear… See More

Jesse, the leasing specialist, and Charles, the property manager, made me feel right at home during my tour. And, after viewing other buildings in the area, the Essex House seemed like a fair deal in consideration of the price per foot, location, and amenities. So, why… See More

I lived in Essex House for several months in 2013. The only reason I moved away was because a job change took me out of state. We sold our condo - and had put a deposit on a unit - only to have the deal fall… See More

We are 8 months into our one-year lease and feel held hostage by a situation over which we have no control. The building is in a great location -- close to all the things you really need and want. Great parks (including the Keller Fountain) across… See More

I had the unfortunate experience of living at the Essex house apartments for a whole year. My roommate and I each had numerous complaints while living here. The rent is far too much for the outdated, disgusting apartments. Our hallway constantly smelled like smoke, the office… See More

No-- there's absolutely no reason to move into this building unless you're desperate... as I was. First glance, the place seems fine, but the comments on here regarding noise, poor management, the awful parking situation, etc, are dead on. I moved over after being in London… See More

This building is over-priced, in an awful location and I hate living here. The hot water does not even fill up to a full tub! It goes cold before even being half full. The parking garage is rediculous- poles everywhere, no assigned spots, oversold. This building… See More

I cannot stress enough how disappointed we are with this living situation. The apartments look very nice when you take a tour, however, the noise from the bus line, delivery trucks, garbage trucks, etc, makes it impossible to sleep without ear plugs. The apartments are located… See More
