I've lived here 2 years and this place was the only place I could find at the time so I moved right in because the exterior looks great! But there is MICE AND BUG infestation galour I pay serious money between traps and poison and bug killlers just to keep my space clean! You see the bugs crawling all over the entrance, emergency exits and hallways! I have to settle until I find a way out! But SAVE YOURSELF THE HEADACHE! It's way over priced for as filthy as it is!
My mother has been feeling unsafe at this apartment and Yolanda has made her feel like safety is important her office is surrounded by cameras while everyone has one camera in the front people smoke in the hallways sleep in the hallways they keep the door open 12 am till morning to let people sleep in the hallway my mother is disable and that lady has no concerns for my mother or anyone's safety she's the type to move if money being lost truly she needs to be removed she's very unprofessional this picture was token 2 am in the morning anyone can walk into the building I'm reporting you Yolanda to city hall you need to be replaced
"In 2011, Iron Stone purchased a slew of apartment buildings in Philly after the old landlord fell behind on payments. [They] acquire[d] buildings... right on the edge of West Philly's gentrification: ...they were ready to... "execute solid acquisition, operation, and exit strategies."... Since acquiring these buildings, life has gotten worse for their residents.... Meanwhile, Iron Stone created a new regime to keep people in line: surveillance, fees, and insults.... But tenants in Iron Stone owned buildings are pushing for big changes....On 08/29/2016, they went public, bringing fifty tenant-signed letters to Iron Stone that demand Iron Stone negotiate with the Philly Tenants Union so tenants can win decent homes, have their wins protected, and keep a voice in how their buildings are run."As of 09/20/2016 neither the ownership or management have contacted the Philly Tenants Union in regards the signed demand letters. https://goo.gl/MpBCed
Roaches for months and terrible management with no one above the local director to talk to. Also, dirty in the common areas and outside around the property.
Building has one 1920's elevator that is often out of order or doesn't work because inner door was not closed all the way. Recently, the outer doors on the 1st & 3rd floors and the floor were replaced but it's still the same 1920's guts. The back door to the dumpster doesn't lock & only has alarm. The dumpster area has no evening lighting. Building has several cameras but the 2 large ones are pointed towards the walls & I doubt that the others work. The janitorial staff is inadequate for this building. Debris is left in the hallways & stairwell for days or weeks & carpets are disgusting. Roaches get bad in the summer. Proper disposal of trash & cleaning up after pets needs to be enforced or more janitorial staff is needed to clean up after tenants. Some tenants leave trash anywhere except INSIDE the dumpster and also leave dog feces in the back & front lawns, hallways, and even the elevator. Maintenance is slow to respond to service requests. Rent is increased 5% yearly.
I have lived here for about a year now and I am more than happy with the service of this new property manager. He is quick to respond, and very attentive to resident's needs. Aside from that, the atmosphere here at The Bentley has climbed since when I first moved in. I love living here!
I never used this business before. I'm interested in a cheap 1 bed room apartment, or just a room to rent monthly.
I hated the time I spent living at this condo. I not only found out that there was mold in my apartment, but also had my car vandalized in the under ground parking lot by a fellow resident for which I received no help at all on the part of Bridgeview identifying the perpetrator of the violence who was recorded on video. If you can avoid Bridgeview, do so at all costs. Also, there is no ventilation in the bathrooms which is against building code in the city. If you want to live in an apartment with no ventilation in the bathroom, go ahead and enjoy the resulting unhealthy humidity conducive to mold growth. OMG and supposedly this place is dog friendly but the management told everyone they are not allowed to hang out in the fenced in courtyard with their dogs/pets and actually when I was in the courtyard with my baby greyhound mix, this crazy old hag started yelling at me and my puppy.
