The other reveiws are 2 and 4 yrs old and remarkably most of the problems still exist now. Still NO working elevator, and there are still leaky windows, smelly and dirty stairwells and hallways with broken light fixtures, several entry way doors are broken and hanging off their hindges. Stairwell and stairs are in need of a serious pressure washing. The lobby area is always unkept with dirty dog urine stained floors and dusty walls, and counter tops. NO Work-Order system in place so you have to report maintenance problems numerous times before they are addressed. Laundry areas are not cleaned AT ALL, (alot of tenants go to Laundromats). The hallways floors are only mopped twice a month and don't appear to ever be swept with a broom. LAZY, RUDE and UNPROFESSIONAL Front Office staff who don't monitor anything in the building for cleaniless or working order etc., (No such thing either manager conducting a walk-thru of the building on at least a daily basis to do a spot check),...The management wait for tenants to tell them about obvious common areas issues. NO privaacy when talking to office staff about your lease or account as there are always other tenants, maintenance workers or outside folks hanging around socializing with them. Even if you are a boho, hipster, or nubian soul type and like the NEW YORK style of a rough loft look, you should RUN not walk from The Hudson Lofts!
guest!!!!DO NOT LIVE HERE!!!!!TOXIC BACKYARD!!!! So, I moved out last month and I'm perfectly aware they were going to hold my security deposit for about 30-45 day right after leaving the property. It has been 2 weeks now after the 45 day mark to send out my deposit. I have continually called the main office 4-7 times throughout the work day to ask about the progress of my deposit being mailed out to me. Seriously!!! After talking to them twice (two different people) a week and a half ago, I can't reach anyone now. I seriously believe they are purposely ignoring my phone calls. I have been nothing but kind and respectful to these people even when I know they're being A$$ Holes. I HIGHLY RECOMMOND YOU STAY THE F**K AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. !!!The building itself has its own problems. They are willing to lie to you when you do a walk through with one of their building managers. If you ask about the giant mountain of black "dirt" they will tell you it is soiled in the Detroit River Walk project. That is total bull! That so called "dirt" is in fact toxic pet-coke mounds. Here is a video link. The brick building behind everyone on the right side of the screen is Hudson Lofts and the mounds are on the left of the screen, behind the building. LINK! http://www.freep.com/article/20130620/NEWS01/306200097/Detroit-pet-coke-Nicholson-Terminal-and-Dock-Co-Detroit-Bulk-StorageDOES NOT DESERVE ANY STARS if I could I would give it -4 stars. If I died within that building before moving out then it would have been -5 stars and someone I know would have type this.
I currently live here. I only was compelled to write a review based on the horrible review I just saw. This place is a hidden treasure. Beautiful views of Canada and Downtown Detroit--at least my loft faced that way. Very friendly property managers who are mature and handle issues timely. I loved my loft. Updated appliances, all black, granite counter tops, all natural wood floors, picture windows, and did I mention the view? I am walking distance from the riverwalk, and anything going on Downtown such as events on the Riverwalk, Hockey games, Baseball games, Mexican town, upscale Downtown Restaurants, the best bars, ect! The list goes on. The community is mixed which is lovely, and a lot of people here are animal lovers and most enjoy working out. There are a couple of issues (as any place) but nothing that would make me give this place less than 4 stars. The only serious issue is the elevator. I hike 4 flights of stairs each and every day. I tell all my guest when they visit to be prepared, they are about to have their workout for the week. The elevator is an old fright elevator that can not be operated by tenants. Be prepared to move in by hauling your things up many flights of steps as most of the time the elevator is not operable. Those who were lucky to move in while it was consider yourself blessed! Other than that, it keeps me in shape I guess. I love the Hudson, to bad its time to leave. I have a new addition to the family and I need more space.
