The building is ongoing massive renovations. While the building staff is great, management for the building is pushing for completion of the project as quickly as possible causing large problems for current residents, such as inaccessibility to the prior building due to construction to the point… See More

This apartment community is undergoing massive renovations. Museum Towers is now the NorthXNorthwest complex of apartments/townhomes. The leasing staff is sympathetic, but the greater problems is the lack of motivation to keep residents happy. The new facilities are equipped with showy Queenax and Precor gym equipment… See More
