I like the apartment; I have been there for a year...one of the first tenants to move in. I have not had any bad experiences so far and the guy in the rental office is really cool. The only complaint that I do have is the way that we have to access the elevators. I wished that we did not have to use your access key to use the elevators, mainly so that our guess are able to come up and leave without scanning your key. This is bad when you are not feeling well...I can only imagine the inconvenience for the sick elderly and the disabled. But other than that, its nice. Parking is good, security is a bit much but I guess giving the history of the previous apartment that was there, they have to try to keep it from going back to the old ways. The rent is reasonable for all that they offer in the place and the electric is not that bad.

I like it and will recommend it to any who.

The Overlook has been quite an experience for a newbie to the DC area. I'll list things by category and highlight my personal experience:
Security - During the day the building is so secure that I don't even receive my USPS mail. Fed Ex and UPS can seemingly penetrate their way through "Top Flights" web of safety, but not USPS. I have had several issues with getting packages delivered directly to my door. The daytime security officer is pretty cool. She seems knowledgeable and she's there everyday. At night you don't know whose going to be there. Some of the "officers" look as if they were just one donut and 99 test questions away from making it as a police.

Maintenance - So far so good. I??m in the middle of waiting for a maintenance issue to be resolved. We??ll see what happens. The staff seems pretty nice. I??m not scared to let them enter my apartment, just as long as I??m home. (hee-hee).

Parking - PARK ON THE LOT, otherwise it may not be safe for your car. I kid you not, some mornings you can ride up the street and see a trail of broken glass from the attempts made on the vulnerable cars the night before.

Noise - The walls in these apartments aren't sound proof, so watch what you say. And I have to let you know, this is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and I mean no harm, but my neighbors are a Fox5 News story in the works away from Allison telling us the inside story at 7am. Every week I can get a glass (if I chose to) and catch up with their world. If you're going to have a disagreement, cool, but why do you choose to wait to discuss everything (so loudly) at 11:30 at night. I guess they don't want the sun to go down on their wrath (LOL).

Staff - There have been a few office staff who have faded away. One lady was very rude with the tenants. I was talking to a woman on the street about The Overlook and she knew one of the women who worked here but "faded away". She said she didn't fade away from her previous job. They fired her because she was so rude. The gentleman who works in the office is friendly. If you go to apply, you will enter into the office, turn your head to the right and see a lady in her office working at her computer, but she will not acknowledge your presence or need for help. So don??t clear your throat, just be kind and say ??excuse me, can I get some assistance, please?. I think she??s playing solitaire on that computer half the time, but if that's the worse of things, yeah!

All in all, I really like my apartment. Once I enter into the gates, I feel a little better. I enjoy the amenities like the washer and dryer, the work out room and the free contacts from all the weed that's smoked in the building. (LOL)

Out of 1-10 scale, my final score for this apartment would be a ...7.5

The Overlook is a really nice place to call home, at least for now.

I was one of the first seniors to move into The Overlook. I have a problem with the way the building is clean. The carpet is swept. The laundry room floor is not clean, the counter tops are not clean and the trash is not removed.

I also have a problem with the bathrooms being lock. Seniors are afraid to attend events, because they may have to go to the bathroom. If they attend an events and have to go to the bathroom, they have to go to their own bathroom which could be on the seventh floor.

Another problem, there is not enough security. If the security guard leave his or her post to go to the bathroom. There is no one at the front desk.

Also, another security officer is needed at the Wheeler Road entrance. That entrance is being used to let others into the building by putting something in the door. That door should be monitored at all times.

If another security guard is not possible, then the camera should be monitored. Because the entrance is not monitored and persons are entering the building because a resident is allowing them to enter, that resident should be held accountable. What is going to happen, when a senior is injury or kill.

I think the Overlook is a lovely place to live. However, there are things that management and the residents can do to make The Overlook the best place to live.

Overall the apartment complex is rather nice for the price and amenities offered. I love the security of the building-gated property, cameras, key card access and 24 hour security guard, and also the fact that everything is relatively new. I do have a few complaints however, the largest being that they require visitors and tenants with out of state tags to park outside of the gates. This is a HUGE issue for me given that the surrounding community has an active rate of criminal activity. I along with several other tenants have had our vehicles vandalized. My car window was broken with a rock. I feel that anyone that is a lease holder, paying rent faithfully every month should be allowed to park their vehicle on the premises. I mean isn't that what I'm paying for? Certainly it isn't to put my vehicle at risk on the streets of SE. Also, the dryer in my apartment has been broken for four months now. Supposedly maintenance is waiting on a part to be ordered. Nowhere on earth have I known it to take 4 months for a part to come in. Completely unacceptable. Given that the building is only a year old and everything is supposed to be "brand new", I should not even be experiencing this problem. I've put in several requests with maintenance and left several complaints with the leasing office, yet nothing has been done. I will be speaking to the property manager this week, and if this results in nothing, will be contacting the company that owns the property and filing a formal complaint. Another issue that I have is that the trash compactor on my floor consistently jams. This leads to residents piling their garbage up in the trash room, which in turn produces foul odors, and my biggest fear is that it will lead to rodent and roach infestation. Given that my apartment is directly next door, I am the first to experience these unpleasantries. Overall the Overlook is a decent place to live in comparison to other properties for the price, but it still has alot of improvements to make.

I like my apartment and building. I like how each floor has its own color theme. It adds a little spice to the place that way you wouldn't get bored. I think that's original and I have never seen that before. I think that the prices of the apartments are okay, they are brand new and everything in it is brand new. You can go some were else and pay more that $900.00 a month and everything is old and dull. I like the fact that it has a washing machine and dryer in the apartments. The only thing that I don't particularly care for is the security at the front desk. Some of them are fine, cool; down to earth, and mind there own business. But one particular night I brought someone to my house, and the security guard was very aggressive and pretty rude about me bringing a guest in the building. He made my friend sign in and told me that all guest were suppose to sign in. Then he got mad when I told him that I didn't know that because I have people over my house all the time and I was never questioned about them and they didn't have to sign in. After my guest signed in, the security officer wanted to see their ID and copied all of the information from it. Then the officer proceeds to ask me what was my apartment number to make sure that was where we were going. I don't think I have ever been so offended and pissed in my life. I am thinking that they are now monitoring who we have in our apartments. That right there is just too much. I don't want them all up in my business. It's like they are going to have a report of who is going in and out of your apartment. I know that things are bad with all types of things going on and they are just trying to protect us. But there is a thin line between making the residents feel safe and making them feel uncomfortable.

Oh, then they also lied about the free internet access. So be prepared to pay for you own.

I just moved in at the Overlook. I really like my apartment. The management team is really nice and down to earth. I think that the security of the building is a little to strong. You have to have a badge in order to get access to the building or inside the gate. I understand that. But you have to have that same badge to operate the elevator. That to me is a little to much. Because if I did not have to use the badge for the elevator I would just leave it in my car. I have already had a bad experience with this whole badge situation. I just moved in so nothing is organized and there is still stuff all around my house. One morning while I was on my way to work I could not find my badge. After searching for it for over 20 minutes, I finally called my boss and explained to her what was going on and that I would be late. It's a good thing that she was understanding. After looking some more, I finally was like screw this, I'm leaving and I will deal with getting in the building when I get back. When I go to the elevator it wouldn't even work w/o the badge. Now I was pissed because I was like this is ridiculous. I was actually trapped in the building and could not get out. I had to wait till the rental office opened to call them and explained to them what was going on. The manager had to come and get me, well meet me at my floor. I felt like a child. It is a nice building and everything but I would recommend this community for singles or couples without any children and people who know that they are not going to have many visitors over there place.
