These are very oooollllldddd buildings (1926) with lots of maintenance issues all the time. We just had a notice posted that the hot water will be off for a month because they are replacing the pipes. How are we supposed to deal with that? It has already been off once or twice a week for several months. Staff is nice when you complain but it isn't like they are going to knock any money off your rent for tolerating this. Our apartment had roaches really bad when we first moved in but they eventually got them taken care of. Dryers take over an hour to dry a load of clothes which ends up costing over $2. Also two of the three coin operated washers will wait until you almost get your $1.50 deposited then they will have a glitch and show you haven't put any money in. Parking is a big issue. You can choose between parallel parking on the street and getting your car bumped about once a month or pay for a parking garage that is 2 blocks away or pay them to park in their lot with very small spaces that are very cumbersome to exit. Be sure to try parking in the space and leaving before you enter into a lease for one of their parking spaces! The spots along Roanoke require you to remove your car by 7am or it gets towed so beware! Don't underestimate the noise and dust coming from the Plaza Vista construction project. With the new hotel and office building going in over there it will make this place even more noise and congested. These buildings are all concrete and brick with no insulation so expect your utility bills to be very high. They say your heat is free from a steam boiler but they only turn them on sporadically. You end up paying for an electric heater to stay warm then wake up in the middle of the night burning up because you left a radiator knob open and they finally turned the boiler on - then you open a window to cool down - totally ridiculous. These radiators knock when they come on and some of the radiators you can't turn off all the way so they always heat. Of course there is no thermostat to set to control them like modern systems have. If you think this is your best solution then you DEFINITELY HAVEN'T LOOKED HARD ENOUGH!!!
