WARNING...DO NOT RENT APARTMENT ---! Management will do nothing about the noise, trash, weed smoking and drinking on the property. Natasha Lesley is the new manager, she knows nothing and is the biggest -----. The neighbors don't care about keeping the building clean because they all are on welfare. If you rent this apartment you will be very disappointed because it's in a nice area, so you think that your living would be nice too. Not - ------!!!!!

    This place is a misfit in an amazing up and coming neighborhood. If left alone and/or surrounded by like communities this portion of Alexandria would become nothing less than a low-income nightmare. The management is unresponsive to any need that you may encounter. And don't even think about lodging any type of complaint that may requires some type of action by management. Before you even consider moving here DO SOME RESEARCH! This place is comprised of 80% households below some type of income level and 20% "workforce" units. And you will definitely feel the 80 percentile of worthlessness that resides here if you make the mistake of taking one of these apartments. Personally, I (1) had all four wheels stolen off of my Infiniti from a "secure" garage. (2)Had a maintenance issue (leak) that wasn't addressed for two weeks. (3) As a result of the leak had black mold growing in my apartment. Management was notified but there was no action whatsoever until the city of Alexandria was called and an inspector came out to view the situation. (4) Had to endure an inconsiderate noisy neighbor. Management and the police… See More>

      I love this community but it seems like the neighbors try to destroy the building with trash, grocery carts and being overall dirty. The maintenance staff use to complete requests in a timely manner and leave a notice that they were in my apartment. now there is no notice.

        The community is fine, the residents are awful. I have issues with the drugs on the property and people not taking care of the property. My matience request are never filled. The residents that do not pay rent, do not take care of the property and

          I love living at The Station. The building is clean and quiet, the residents are friendly, the apartments are spacious, and the bang-for-your-buck is unmatched in the area. I have been here just under two years and I have zero interest in moving out, which is an endorsement in and of itself!

            The experience was fair until management began to change in the office. A lot of paperwork was asked to be resubmitted by residents and I believe that it became an inconvenience. Also, the smell of marijuana would often come into my apartment through the vents from neighbors.

              My overall experience has been good. It is sometimes hard to get in touch with someone in the main office and I am often times sent to voicemail. I have also tried numerous times to get my number added to the front door buzzer but everytime they tell they are going to fix it it never gets fixed. I would like to be able to buzz my guests in. This would be soo helpful if I could get this feature added.

                In the beginning the building was quite and the staff was easily accessible. It has all changed now. I am not sure what happened but the new management has seemed to have forgotten this building. The building use to be so popular and upscale. things have changed.

                  Nice place but the management and maintenance is HORRIBLE. Property management is the absolute worse. During the summer I went 2 weeks without air. And once the AC was fixed it took another 2 weeks to get the AC window units out. I've had problems where I would call the rental office and a lady by the name of Wanda would answer and give some type of BS story and say that things would get fixed. They never did until you call upper management. It's absoulutely ridiculous. I hate this place and these people. I cannot wait for my lease to be up so I can move.

                    When I first moved here there was a wonderful property manager by the name of Joe. Of course, good at your job/care about the quality of living for your residents versus an only collecting money ideology means Joe didn't last long; the same with Eric--a former leasing agent. The maintenance is a joke and, as someone else mentioned, enter your apartment without notice and don't leave a work order. The head maintenance guy has asked out people while working in their apartments--this came out from several people at our 1 and only tenant meeting. Our hall carpets have only been cleaned twice, the walls haven't been painted in God knows when, and the cleaning crew only comes a couple of times per week. You can hear your neighbor walk across their floor--and if they allow their kids to treat the apartment like a playground, forget about it. Oh, did I mention that the new property manager introduced herself by sending out a letter asking for our electric company account numbers and last year's electric bills-- no hello, no this is who I am nor a reason for the request. Weird! You may have asked why… See More>

                      STAFF IN AND OUT OF YOUR APARTMENT

                      You will be highly disappointment with this establishment. They act like they care but they just tell you anything to get you to shut up! The staff comes in and out of your apartment without your knowledge, maintenance doesn't leave work orders to let you know what they've done in your place if any. Move in at your own risk!!!! Need an investigation!

                        This Was A Nice Place To Live Until The Wrong People Moved In and New Management Took Over! Parking Is Excellent and The Area Is Convenient..If You Can Manage To Deal With Noise and Waiting Days For Maintenance and or A Call Back From Management Along With Inconsiderate Neighbors, Then This Is The Place For You!Very Unprofessional Since New Management Took Over and Blind Sided!You Have To Complain Over Ten Times To Get Things Done Here Whether If It's Maintenance Fixing Something In The Apartments and or The Apartment Building.The Elevators Are Always Broken There Is Always Drug Usage On The Property From Outsiders As Well As Insiders; Trash Left Everywhere, Carpets Are Filthy In The Hallways and The Smell Of The Trash Shoot Doesn't Help..My Advice Do Not Stop Here Keep Looking!!!!!

                          What does being on Section 8 have to do with anything? Being on Section 8 has nothing to do with the way people choose to live. How do you know who is on Section 8 and who is not? Please don't stereotype or categorize others. Just because people aren't working, don't assume they are on Section 8. Anyone can fall on hard times... No one is exempt! What about the dogs and their owners? They allow their dogs to urinate on the elevators. Some of the owners walk their dogs without a leash. Some of the owners even allow their dogs to relieve themselves right in front of the building.

                            Not like your average apartment building

                            The station's from a far seem very nice. There a new and try to integrate a local fire station with the residents. You would automatically assume that the noise from the fire trucks would cause a concern. Its more the case with unruly neighbors. I am slowly watching the brand new building become in habited with unruly young non working individuals. The building does not have a concierge, security, and maintenance on site. Forget about that, this is just your average run of the mill shiny on the outside BS all up and through the inside building. I will say this much thinking about moving here? Sure take it into consideration if you would like to soon live in the projects, I m watching the filtering in of young maybe section 8 people (the don't work how else do that pay the bills!), loud individuals (don't believe the hype with the "Sound Attenuation Apartments " my first month consisted of filling like I was living in a night club. Also not being able to get maintenance when requested, the line never gets answer, and you have one point of contact which is your building manger. Nice guy but I… See More>
