This is legit the WORST building to live in. At first it's nice and you'd think everything is great but all the utilities will fall apart, the smoke alarm will go off every time you try to cook, even boiling water, the elevators are always down and don't work so if you want to get anywhere on time make sure you leave 30 minutes earlier than planned just to account for the elevator never showing up. Honestly don't get tricked into living here. You can find SO much better for your money.

I have never experienced such rude people in my entire life. My girlfriend and I was taken back by the experience at the leasing office. They were as*holes to our agent. Why? Avoid this place if possible. God forbid you have an issue while living here.

Pros:

3 stars because there is some good still.....The doormen are nice, the management company is competent which is a huge plus in NYC and the building is kept very clean. Apartments are spacious and the rooftop and gym are both still cool. Oh yea the location is fantastic. Hope this help you.

Cons:

Update. The building has become increasingly younger and younger. They are "upgrading" the elevators and have been doing so for 8 months so far and not even one of them is finished so long wait times during peak hours and I anticipate the elevator maintenance will go on for at least 2 years at the current pace of 1 fixed in 8 months. Actually, the elevators are a huge issue now. Great place if you're a millennial and you have "squad goals" you miss your floor because you're snap chatting your "fwb" or if you're a college bro who thinks everything is "lit." if you're a little older and none of the above sounds like you...I would avoid.

This place deserves 0 stars. I have NEVER in all my years as a manhattanite experienced customer service like this. Not only were they rude, distant, and shady but also they hit us with additional fees after we put an application down and they saw our bank accounts. Greg, Patty, and their assistant Jeremy in the 200 Water Street building were the WORST people I have ever dealt with. They dodged my calls, hung up on me, and tried to charge me an extra $3,000 fee!!! There is NO apartment worth that kind of treatment. After we refused to pay the $3,000 Fee, they said they would refund our application fee within 3 weeks... we got it almost two months later. PLEASE DO NOT LIVE IN A ROCKROSE PROPERTY. TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO AVOID LIVING IN THEIR PROPERTIES

I recently moved downtown from UES and I love it! The building itself is dated, 1970's I believe, but if you have an updated apt then the lobby doesn't much matter. However, after 6 weeks I've tried putting in my first maintenance order for the bathtub running dirty/brown water, and it's not easy. No one seems to exist in the world of after hour maintenance. I've googled everything, asked the front desk who suggested building link. After multiple log in attempts including changing my password, there's still no such site to access.

Pros:

The rooftop pictures are not updated! the rooftop now has better colorful modern furniture. The rooftop is a amazing asset to have in NYC where you can invite your friends and hang out day and night with a amazing view. Other residents are friendly too so Iv made friends while on the rooftop this summer. Overall the experience at 200 Water is what you makee of it. The walls are thin so you can clearly hear the conversations in the hallway, the doorman are nice, management is helpful and the handyman will come whenever you can track him down. On weekends the whole building is lively filled with big groups of people walking in and out ready to party. The gym is busy during rush hours, dry cleaning is expensive and the laundry room is never packed. I think this is a great experience for a young working person in the city. If you live on the higher floors, expect a 5-10 elevator rides during rush hour. This is of course going to happen in a large building so prepare accordingly. (LOGISTICS: FYI- building does not allow partition doors or walls to the ceiling, so if a broker misleads you, you have been warned. Still there are ways to work around it like installing a accordion door and sticking pillows on the top of the walls to stop light and some sound. Also if you're flexing, the lease office will return your deposit evenly. This can be a problem if you plan to never communicate with your roommates again. So be prepared for that. ) Best of luck :)

Pros:

If you're thinking about renting and you're looking up Yelp reviews, keep in mind that everyone on Yelp (unless they Yelp everything) only leaves a review if they either have a REALLY GREAT experience or a bad experience. (Because come on now, who reviews apartments?) Most people are more likely to leave a review if they had a bad experience than if they were satisfied. So yes read on, but only take everything with a grain of salt. I've lived here for a year and I have really loved it,especially now that I'm moving out due to increasing rent. 200 Water is expensive!! but you get what you pay for. If you have the money, then consider this building. (Our studio is now going up to a little over $3,000, which is insane. But it did fit two people very comfortably.)Our lobby is more impressive than most other luxury buildings in the area in my opinion. Our rooftop is fantastic and has a great view of the Brooklyn Bridge and the river - watching fireworks from my window then the roof then the Seaport on July 4th was awesome. Maintenance always took maybe an hour MAX to come fix things and they're always so sweet. They just renovated the laundry room and the hallways. The doormen are professional and if you try to get to know them, they seem awesome, although I unfortunately was too antisocial to do so. The gym is just OK to be honest, but I'm too lazy to use it often. A few treadmills and ellipticals and bikes, and several weights but not impressive. Better gyms elsewhere. The view is fantastic if you're facing east like I am, and God idk who says this but I love financial district because it's quiet and so convenient at the same time. You're right in front of the South Street Seaport where Smorgasburg is during the warmer months, and tons of fun things to do. Great restaurants. I'll miss it so muchThere is a pet fee but it's really easy to sneak a pet in. Weeks so expect a bit of a wait. I love this building and I'm so sad to leave!! Come if you have the money. If not, avoid avoid avoid.

Cons:

Downside is the price - it really is expensive... Even laundry is like $0.25 more expensive than other luxury buildings I looked at ($2.50). Also sucked that we had to use specific wall companies to set up a wall, cause you know they have some deal going on. And God so many frat/Wall Street/ douchey looking guys in this building. Like the type that you'd feel uncomfortable being in an elevator alone with, and I certainly was. The girl in front of me constantly has people over and can be loud but I don't really care. My neighbors, other than that, feel nonexistent. The elevators are super fast but they're currently doing renovations for14?!?!

Pros:

I have lived in this building for approx 6 years. The building:I love it. The building management team recently decided to renovate, and although it was a little inconvenient - the building looks brand new again. The walls are a little thin, and I can sometimes hear my neighbors. Thankfully one of my neighbors moved out - she was particularly loud and obnoxious - but thankfully she moved out. This is not unlike any other large dwelling. I have never lived in another building that is this CLEAN. The hallways get vaccumed, the garbage disposal areas on each floor are cleaned daily. I have not seen one roach - the entire time I've lived here. (SERIOUSLY, NOT ONCE!) THAT IS FANTASTIC. The building is PET FRIENDLY. So there's plenty of dogs to greet you in elevators. Gym / Laundry room /Lounge were all renovated recently. And the gym itself is very busy during peak hours, but you can generally find the right time to go.The roofdeck is phenomenal - the views are amazing.The staff:From the building manager, to doormen, to maintenance and cleaning - everyone has been wonderful. They even helped me when I moved apartments (within the building)! I have been there for a while and I know most of the staff personally at this point. They are all super professional and always helpful. The building staff respond to all requests almost immediately and if possible most are resolved within a day or two.The rent:The rent has been steadily going up, but the maximum allowed (4-5% a year) - sadly my salary doesn't grow at the same pace. The rents are rising way too quickly all around the city. SANDY:The handling of the Sandy hurricane and its aftermath was fantastic. Yes - I was displaced for the month after, but unlike other buildings in the area - the building management sent daily updates of the ongoing progress. AND the rent was waived for the time the tenants were displaced. They also offered a fridge cleaning service - for free - since many people left in a hurry. Bravo!

Pros:

I lived in this building for 2 years. The rooftop is as great as everyone says it is, the doormen are awesome and the building staff is the best of any building I have lived in in NYC. They are phenomenal, the apartment next to mine has frequent parties and the doormen are always willing to help quiet them down.

Cons:

Recently Rockrose decided to renovate the lobbies in the ugliest colors of all time so they can justify higher rent increases. In order to do so they have also decided to cut costs by cutting off the AC in all common areas; the gym's air is always off so it's more like bikram cardio, the hallways feel like the mta subway platforms and dozens of apartments have AC units that do not work. If you are lucky enough to have a working AC/Heater, everything about living here is pretty great but for those who do not, and those who want to work out, it might not be worth the $$$ rent.

If I could give zero stars I would. This is one of the most corrupt landlords in the city (and I know that's saying something). Notice that any positive reviews are from people who don't live in the building, but go to party on the rooftop. That's because the rooftop is the building's one redeeming quality, but it doesn't make living there worth it.For an entire year they couldn't get the billing right on our rent. Each month we'd pay the rent on time, then get a letter that rent wasn't paid. We'd call, they'd tell us their system was messed up, and the same thing would happen the next month. Occasionally we'd get a really nasty email or call from one of there (now supposedly former) accounts people. She was a complete psychopath and apparently had a history of yelling at tenants (guess that's why she got fired). She'd flip out and threaten to evict even when we explained we paid the bill. There's also zero chance you'll ever get your security deposit back, so just plan on that money being gone. We moved out of our place a year ago and were told we'd be getting some of our deposit back, but now the manager just dodges our calls. We never got a formal letter describing why the deposit was withheld.
