Noah was a great prop mgr but his boss Gwen fired him and replaced him with a maintenance guy named Doug. Yes, they made a maintenance guy into a property manager! It is working out as well as you'd expect that to work out, which is to say, quite horribly.

First of all, he's terrible at maintenance, so you can imagine that he's not much better at the rest of his job, either. He refuses to deal with issues, and lets them get out of control until they create unsafe situations. If he spent as much time fixing things as he does on pool maintenance, we might see some improvements.

Turnover here is really high now. Noah actually enforced the rules. Doug is basically letting people get away with anything, like garbage in the common walkways, using balconies for garbage and storage, and noise at all hours.

Not a week goes by that a police car isn't parked out front with its lights on.

There are electrical code violations on record; check them out before you sign a lease.

Anyway, it's a giant bunch of nonsense. They never finished the remodel, so some units are stuck in limbo needing a lot of renovation and repairs. The owner was planning on converting to condos and selling, but then the market bottomed out, so they got caught with their pants down and had to refinance the building. They had also planned on getting some new investors involved, but that fell through too, so now they are stuck having to show the bank that the building can generate revenue (in order to keep the bank from calling in the loan), so they keep the rents pegged at about 150 dollars over market value.

Yes, these are ONE bedroom units going for just under 750, when you can get two bedroom units in the same neighborhood for 650. Doesn't make a lot of sense, considering the plumbing situation and the mold problem.

How do I know so much? you might ask. Well, that's easy. Doug is a gossip. He can't help it. I know all the people here, what medical conditions they have, and what medications they're on. All thanks to the property manager. He will sit there for literally hours on end telling you all about your neighbors and their private information, as well as all the insider stuff at corporate. It's amazing, really.

So to sum up, if you value your health, safety, and privacy, you could do a lot better than this place. Avoid it like the plague. It's too bad really, because most of the tenants are great people.

My roommate and I filled out apps here and had just a great experience with the manager, Noah. We were treated very nice, and the process was fast. We love the large living spaces, and look forward to moving in at the end of FEB,09
