I recently moved into an MLC Property in Midtown and the experience has been great thus far. The application process was pretty seamless. I submitted my application and fees that morning, and I had an approval before close of business.
My building is a lot older than other spaces where I previously rented and many of the features are fairly dated, but it seems that the owners have done a decent job of maintaining them. However, I will say that my studio has a nice shabby chic charm that I've grown to love and appreciate. Clean, simple, and easy. No issues with bugs or other pests. The other residents are also great. NO creeps or shady folks hanging around the building, and I haven't had any issues with noise.
The office staff is extremely helpful. They're available and easy to get in contact with. And they actually show concern when I have an issue. They've been fantastic with getting work orders to the maintenance staff. Maintenance has also been a breeze to work with, generally completing my requests same or next day (which is outstanding compared to my experience with other properties in Midtown). They even ordered and replaced a dishwasher (brand new!) within 2 days. I'm typically not around when they visit the apartment, but they are courteous enough to leave notification that they've entered and what they worked on.
For the price and location, you can't beat it!
