Resident · 2003 - 2004
I know the complex can't control neighboring noise, but I wasn't aware the extent of it. I have lived in two different units in this complex - one facing north and one facing south. What I didn't realize before moving in was that all the Emergency Vehicles travel on 12th to go north. The Police station is one block away and the Fire station is two blocks away. The north side unit had a problem with the sirens echoing between the complex and it's north neighbor building. This got unbearable so we moved to a southerly facing unit. I thought this was a good idea, but then there is the Capital Hill Arts Center. I like the arts, but there are MANY weekends when Friday, Saturday, and even Sunday nights until 2 am the band plays on. My sliding glass door to the balcony vibrates due to the noise level. <br><br>The change in management was not good. When the change happened they wanted all the tenants to update their lease info. They wanted to know who lived in the apartment and numbers on your keys. They also wanted your vehicle info again. The front door lock was changed, but the elevator code will work with any number combination except the old code - real secure right.<br><br>The carpets in the halls are not kept nearly as clean as they were before the new management. The elevators are even in worse condition. Management does not stick to the posted office hours. As much as I hate the idea of having to move, I will not stay here more than my current lease. I truely miss Jason, at least he kept this place clean and the elevator security codes worked properly.
