It is much like a college dorm. Don't confuse this building as a "home" even though you'll pay out the nose to live here. Everything is a-la-cart. The leasing office treats the tenants just as one would expect any Private Equity firm to treat people - like disposable resources. Utilities are subsidized by all lease holding tenants. What this means is that if someone has an apartment with 1 person on the lease, but 6 people are living in the apartment - they only pay utilities for 1 person and YOU will subsidize the other 5. Does this happen? Yes. Think of a house full of teenagers that don't have to turn off their lights when they leave a room - or- worst yet, leave the lights on in the entire apartment & the AC/Heat on full blast when they leave for work. College students & young, poor new graduates w/their 1st job stack high and tight in these apartments without being on the lease. Just check Craigslist.com Good luck getting your packages. I am constantly going to the apartment in the opposite tower that has my same Apt # to retrieve my packages. Sometimes I'm successful, other times not. Packages go missing regularly. The concierge claims they accept package deliveries as a "courtesy", however that would imply there was a choice, but there isn't. They have a horrible tracking system but they won't let the shipping companies (UPS, FedEx, USPS) go to your apartment. The management's opinion is that tenants should pay for a post office box if they want guaranteed package delivery. Some of the concierge staff are also just plain rude. They act like they are doing the tenants a favor other than empolyees paid to do a job. As we've already established though - they are not providing a service, just a courtesy. Sounds like a sweet gig. You have to pay for parking. $75 per slot. If you want a reserved slot, that is another $75. Parking slots are hard to find and paying for a parking decal is a joke. If you know the schedule of the tow truck (weekdays around 1am - once only) anyone can park for free - and they DO! Oh boy do they! You can walk through the parking garage and count no less than 50 cars without decals while I drive in circles hoping someone might pull out and let me park. I pay for my parking sticker btw. Rent is increased 8-10% each year. No exceptions. I don't know about other apartments, but mine is over run with ants in the kitchen & spiders in nearly every room. I wake up all the time with spider bites on me. I bomb my apartment every month because the pest control isn't effective.

The management are beginning to install W&D in apartments, but oh boy! will you pay for that luxury!!! I'm talking $3,500 a month for the smallest 2 bedroom apt! There is a laundry room in the basement, but that will be going away soon. Apartments that don't have W&D will have to then drive to a laundromat.

If you know the schedule of the tow truck (weekdays around 1am - once only) anyone can park for free - and they DO! Oh boy do they! You can walk through the parking garage and count no less than 50 cars without decals while I drive in circles hoping someone might pull out and let me park. I pay for my parking sticker btw. Rent is increased 8-10% each year. No exceptions. I don't know about other apartments, but mine is over run with ants in the kitchen & spiders in nearly every room. I wake up all the time with spider bites on me. I bomb my apartment every month because the pest control isn't effective. The management are beginning to install W&D in apartments, but oh boy! will you pay for that luxury!!! I'm talking $3,500 a month for the smallest 2 bedroom apt! There is a laundry room in the basement, but that will be going away soon. Apartments that don't have W&D will have to then drive to a laundromat.

It is much like a college dorm. Don't confuse this building as a "home" even though you'll pay out the nose to live here. Everything is a-la-cart. The leasing office treats the tenants just as one would expect any Private Equity firm to treat people - like disposable resources. Utilities are subsidized by all lease holding tenants. What this means is that if someone has an apartment with 1 person on the lease, but 6 people are living in the apartment - they only pay utilities for 1 person and YOU will subsidize the other 5. Does this happen? Yes. Think of a house full of teenagers that don't have to turn off their lights when they leave a room - or- worst yet, leave the lights on in the entire apartment & the AC/Heat on full blast when they leave for work. College students & young, poor new graduates w/their 1st job stack high and tight in these apartments without being on the lease. Just check Craigslist.com Good luck getting your packages. I am constantly going to the apartment in the opposite tower that has my same Apt # to retrieve my packages. Sometimes I'm successful, other times not. Packages go missing regularly. The concierge claims they accept package deliveries as a "courtesy", however that would imply there was a choice, but there isn't. They have a horrible tracking system but they won't let the shipping companies (UPS, FedEx, USPS) go to your apartment. The management's opinion is that tenants should pay for a post office box if they want guaranteed package delivery. Some of the concierge staff are also just plain rude. They act like they are doing the tenants a favor other than empolyees paid to do a job. As we've already established though - they are not providing a service, just a courtesy. Sounds like a sweet gig. You have to pay for parking. $75 per slot. If you want a reserved slot, that is another $75. Parking slots are hard to find and paying for a parking decal is a joke.
