The building is alright but in my opinion I don't think it should be considered a luxury apartments. The maintenance of the building overall is not the greatest, the hallways usually stinks and the carpets and floor are dirty. Also elevators smell as well, there's usually dog pee all over it. In conclusion is not worth they price that I'm paying.

      Overall I have has a great experience living at Cosmopolitan. When things do go wrong, management has been very responsive and prompt. The concierge and manager (Erin) seem to care about the tenants. They always smile when I come into the office and every issue I've had has not only been taken care of but Erin sends an email to confirm the resolution of the problem when she is involved. That follow up is very important in letting tenants know she cares. Maintenance is friendly and responds promptly. If there is a reason why maintenance is delayed, someone notifies me and provides an approximate time of resolution. Awesome customer service!

        The lack of lighting in the apartment is atrocious. The front door is so thin I can hear the neighbors in their apartment. The other walls are sufficiently insulated so it is otherwise quiet except for hearing everything going on in the hallway. It's strange the gym is detached, making it very annoying in winter to use. The fire alarms (or alarm lighting) goes off constantly, and at the most inconvenient times. I don't even leave when the alarms activate due to the numerous false alarms. Not to mention the random midnight alarm.

          Not the greatest experience. The elevator is always dirty. The hallway connected to the parking garage always smells. It's not really luxury to be honest. It feels like we are paying for luxury, but certainly not getting it

            Verified Resident 2012 - 2022


            Although I love the community, since S.L. Nusbaum took over as property manager, this property has declined drastically in appearance, quality of service, cleanliness, and value. Nusbaum has continued to take away amenities, while increasing our rent. Management of this and the other Town Center properties seem to be lazy, unwilling to walk the propriety, and had the office 'closed' on most days. They make themselves unavailable and fail to engage the residence, as the precious property management company did. We miss Drucker & Falk!

              Verified Resident 2020 - 2022


              Our apartment is well apportioned and comfortable. The maintenance team is attentive to emergencies, but they are slow to respond to other requests, but we have eventually had our maintenance requests answered. The common areas at this building are my most significant concern. The elevators are often covered in dog urine, the hallways smell of urine, and the lobby areas are not cleaned regularly and are often cleaned with dirty mop water. Garbage is usually in the lobbies and hallway areas. I'm not sure if the maintenance and housekeeping staff has been reduced, but the common places are becoming a concern. We have also spoken with the management about allowing dogs to urinate directly in front of the doors to the street, so that we are forced to step over or in some case in puddles of urine to leave the building. The hallways and common areas smell of pot, and although the building is a non-smoking building the management cannot seem to control the smoke. The garbage chutes are often clogged causing the smell of rotting garbage to permeate the apartments. The building's staff is often unreachable, and not attentive… See More>

                I enjoyed living at the Cosmopolitan. The staff and maintenance team are professional and helpful. You’re within walking distance to everything. The apartments are well kept. The only thing i didn’t like is the garage is owned by the city, and if you have a nice car, it’s likely to get stolen. Other than that I had a great experience at this complex.

                  Resident 2021


                  My experience with the Cosmopolitan Apartment's from my first tour until now, a resident, is 5 out of 5 stars for the following reasons: Noise. The Cosmopolitan is truly built to condominium specifications; there is feet of concrete between the floors and between the walls of the apartments. It is a joy being able to enjoy your apartment without hearing your neighbors T.V, music, conversations, walking, etc., like you read in almost every apartment review. There is covered garage parking that is such a plus, with 24 hour security with is awesome, clean temperature controlled storage lockers, and same for any packages you receive in storage lockers, where you can receive notifications on your phone. Maintenance team is professional, personable, and timely. Resident Services is same; they have monthly get togethers for the apartment community that is wonderful, and are available to assist you with questions, or any concern. The Cosmopolitan location is footsteps from some of the best dining, shopping, entertainment, business's, and pet daycare. I am thankful every day that I can call The Cosmopolitan my home.

                    Resident 2018 - 2020


                    Where to begin? We lived in this community on 2 separate occasions, from 2016-2017 and then 2018-2020. During the 2016-2017 period, Drucker and Falk was the management company and they did an outstanding job of dealing with any issues that may have arisen. The routine maintenance of the building was very good and management was very communicative and responsive to residents. During our 2nd occupancy, we did not experience the same level of professionalism from S.L. Nusbaum, the current management company. When needing service for appliances in our apartment, it was necessary to generate multiple requests in order to resolve the issue. This included the washer/dryer and water heater. Maintenance only applied "band aids" when in all cases, the appliances required total replacement. Most concerning was the water heater which is natural gas. The water heater would misfire after several attempts and not light to heat the tank. This went on for at least 2 requests for service until the water heater was replaced. Most of the appliances were original and as any other appliance there is a certain life expectancy. Most of these in the Cosmo are at or beyond replacement. Additionally in 2019, there was maintenance being performed… See More>

                      This building is dirty and absolutely disgusting. I cannot wait until my lease is up. I have addressed ongoing maintenance problems, COVID-19 violations, noise issues and filthy common areas with the building management with little success. The website is grossly misleading, don't fall for it. Additionally, there is still a considerable amount of construction going on...not an excuse for the filth. The problems here are clearly from a lack of good leadership and financial planning. I'm sure I'll get the standard response from management to contact them with any issues so they can help. Don't bother because you don't help. I live here, I know how you do not work.

                        Resident 2014 - 2018


                        I am no longer call this place HOME after NEW management. Rude & unprofessional staffs, lack of social event for residents, the construction starts 8am Monday - Friday, so noise, I am no longer able to work from home, I am on the phone with clients most of time, but this wasn't the main reason I move, because I can go to coffee shop downstair. I was wonder how this apartment complex get such high rate after awful NEW management, when I continuing read the reviews, realized the most of reviews were for previous management. If you would like to live in town center with luxury style, go looking somewhere else, definitely not here.

                          Dear resident, It saddens me greatly to hear that you feel your experience at The Cosmopolitan has not been a positive one. Our team genuinely cares for our residents and community and has been working tirelessly over the last 2 years to enhance resident life. We offer several resident events every single month including weekly fitness classes, paint night, shopping events, theatre outings, and delicious meals as well as lifestyle programs offering something for everyone! Check out our social media to see all of the fun events we host. We would love to see you attend and find out for yourself! As you mentioned in your review, we are also completing interior apartment and amenity renovations to bring the community up to date. With three phases of the redevelopment underway, we have all of the newly renovated apartments leased, and the majority were leased by current residents. This is evidence of many happy and loyal residents choosing to sign new lease agreements with The Cosmopolitan. Everyone has been THRILLED with the refreshed look we have put together. We take your satisfaction very seriously. As you are aware, I always maintain an open door policy with our residents. Should you wish to discuss this further in person, I would be happy to speak with you. Please feel free to reach out to me at and we can schedule a time to meet. - All the Best, Kathy - Community Manager

                          I love this place so far. I moved here in November and I have nothing to complain about. The apartment is really nice, the staff is nice and great and the maintenance is fast and efficient. The position is great too, I don't have a car so anytime that I want to go out for a walk I only have to make the corner and I have stores or restaurants everywhere. I recommend this place to everyone!

                            I have lived here since Oct 2016 and truly enjoy living at The Cosmopolitan. The good stuff: location, plenty of indoor parking, good floor plans, office and maintenance staff are responsive and I love my big balcony (only one floor plan has the large balcony). The needs improvement stuff: the building needs updates to the common room, the fitness center and even to the apartments themselves (kitchens are dated and the carpeting needs to be swapped out for some type of hard flooring). The bad stuff...honestly there isn't anything that I consider actually "bad". I will renew my lease in October and will give the new manager time to do updates but I would not renew in Oct 2018 if they don't begin updating.

                              after 3 months, so far so good. I am concerned about the new management company taking over next month. If they do meet at least meet the current management group's standards I will be looking for a new place to live.

Virtually everything needed is within walking distance. The fitness center and clubhouse are always clean and available, unless it has been reserved for private functions. The pool is closed at the end of October for the winter, as it is an outdoor pool. The rooftop community area has BBQ grills and plenty of seating to relax or enjoy your fresh cooked meal.

Some good amenities, like gym, pool and parking. Excellent response for repairs. Building could be cleaner, occasionally a problem with pet liter. Some staff a little ruff and unclear, thankfully balanced with a few friendly faces.

I'll wait six months before I can give you an accurate feedback on my experience as a tenant at the Cosmopolitan apartments. So far I love it here and beginning to feel the neighbors are very friendly.
