Resident 1052046

Verified Resident 2022 - 2024

2/2/2024

I loved living in this apartment from 2022 to August of 2023. Although we have had some neighbors move in that smoke inside the building even though it is states in the lease agreement that there is no smoking. The staff "spoke" was the supposed residents that have been smoking and it was said that it had been handled but I still smell smoke and nothing will get done about it. There is constant noise violations at 2 a.m. and staff has done nothing about it. I would have renewed my lease again this year but all of the turmoil I've had to deal with over the 7 months has made me want to move out of there and never go back.

    I like the place a lot but the lack of response when issues were addressed is a big deal. As well as the fact that my entry way truly does not feel safe. Even after a new door was installed, the problem only got worse.

      Great apartment and location

      I’ve had a great experience in my Southside apartment. The location is great, the ceilings are high, and the people who work here are kind and hardworking. Maintenance requests are filled quickly and the bus stop is just outside the front door.

        This is my third year living in a Live Southside rental, and I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s a super convenient location! I’ve had very few issues and when I do, maintenance is always prompt and extremely helpful.

            Live Southside helped me find an apartment as well as offered discounted rent and gift cards upon move in. The maintenance staff has been helpful in any needs I’ve had. For residential appreciation week they also had week long raffles to enter!

              We toured three apartments in three different buildings and were impressed by how well taken care of they all were. Not just the apartments themselves, but all the common areas too. We signed a lease and are looking foreword to moving in!

                    Apartment's definitely offer great bang for your buck. The apartments themselves are nice with a great location. Landlords are very responsive when needed but otherwise stay out of your hair which is a good change.

                        The exposed brick and stone walls in the apartment are aesthetic but can get chilly in the winter. Management responds promptly to issues, and location is phenomenal. There isn't much outdoor space/natural light, but the price is excellent for the amenities provided.

                          Seamless move in, responsive staff. However, apartment was not well prepared for my move-in: hair in the shower drain was not removed (I had to cut it out myself), the floor was not swept or mopped, and they did not paint to remove large blemishes on the walls (chips, deep scratches, exposed sheetrock, etc.). But issues seem easy to report and the staff immediately agreed to resolve all reported issues. The staff is nice and they've provided me the reassurance that any issues will be resolved. The neighborhood is lovely.

                            The building is close to the main street of southside pittsburgh so at night it can be a bit loud outside and traffic can be dense. Other than that, the apartment is gorgeous for what is asked. Appliances are new, floors are clean, ceilings are high and any issues that the space had before move-in were gone by the time I finally did move in. Staff is easy to reach as well.

                                Overall was a pretty good residency. But, neighbors across the street have dogs that bark all the time because they keep them outside. people inside the building playing music late at night since it is majority college students and its not a big issue because if you just politely ask them to turn it down they will respect you. However when they come back from the bars, be ready to hear everyone in their party in the stairwell for about 2-5 minutes (which will annoy you if you have a short fuse, like myself). parking is available which is a big influence since the street is always full.

                                          Upon arrival to this community the building was unclean, broken down, and in need of many repairs. Overtime, while residents have made improvements to the building, several issues have still come up. Communication with staff is sometimes unpleasant and requires a good deal of time for a response. Overall, the place has received some tlc and has become an enjoyable living experience.

                                                Very terrible workers. The house was a mess when we moved in. So much needs to be fixed and it's coming out of our pocket. And during the whole process they made it seem like everything was our fault and were very rude, sexist, and condescending.
