Resident • 2001 - 2005 Not Recommended
I have lived at Barton's for four years and would NOT recommend it to anyone. It's noisy, the hallways and stairwells are filthy (not to be graphic, but it took three weeks for dog poop and vomit to be cleaned out of one of the stairwells in my building). Security is lax...doors are constantly left proped open, and the garage doors break down on a fairly regular basis. I have had me rent raised without notice, my apartment entered by contractors, again without notice, and had these same contactors leave my apartment door, along with every other apartment on my floor, open, unlocked and unattended. I recently exited my apartment on a Sunday morning to find a man sleeping in my hallway. He claimed to be waiting for his brother, a resident, who wasn't home. My question is, if security is so great how did a non-resident wind up asleep/passed out in my hallway. Many of the unrenovated units have wallpaper in the bathroom and kitchen, and I can say for certain it has never been cleaned. The wall paper in my bathroom was disgusting. Appliances (again in the unrenovated units) are old and inefficient. Considering the rent for these apartments is higher than a mortgage payment for a $350,000 home, I would expect much better service and living conditions. If I could afford to move I would do it immediately. If you are considering renting here, find a better way to spend your money.
