Building Reviews (6)
I've lived at Mantena for just one month - and I absolutely love it! First, Alex in the leasing office is smart, professional, dedicated and extremely pleasant - and she made the application/move-in process super easy!The finishes in the apartment are of the highest quality. I looked at over 50 luxury apartments and this building by far has the nicest finishes. For me, the bathroom and the kitchen were the selling point (see the pictures on their website for yourself). My unit is a studio that has a very large balcony - that combined with the in-unit washer/dryer make it a sort of unicorn in Manhattan. There are a lot of buildings in Manhattan where service/luxury are just a facade and the staff don't really care. This is NOT the case at Mantena. Equity Residential is clearly very thoughtful about who they hire for each and every position. The staff in the building is EXCELLENT. They are all really nice people who care about doing a good job and making Mantena a nice place to live. I personally love the location, being in the middle of my 3 favorite neighborhoods - Hudson Yards, Hell's Kitchen and Chelsea. I could go on, but you get the picture. Hoping that they don't raise my rent too much upon renewal, as I'd definitely like to make this place home for awhile!
My husband and I lived at Mantena for two years, in 2 different units (we upgraded from a studio to a 1bdrm after our first lease was up). The concierge, maintenance and management staff were extremely helpful, friendly and professional. Since it's a boutique building, it really has an intimate environment, which is rare in Manhattan. The entire staff greets you by name and often felt more like family. They took the time to get to know us personally and made us feel right at home. The units themselves are really top-notch with imported appliances and high-end finishes and fixtures. The central A/C was a game changer in the summer! It definitely felt like a luxury building where ever detail in the construction was thought through (there are wine fridges and a Villeroy & Boch toilets in the units, people!).Cons:
The only downsides for us (and ultimately the reasons we left) was that the rent increases were a bit absurd so staying long-term wasn't sustainable. And the location was very busy and touristy so it lacked the neighborhood-y vibe (you're right in the middle of Penn Station and Port Authority and close proximity to Times Sq.). It's also right by the Lincoln Tunnel entrance so there is heavy car traffic at all times. However, if these aren't issues for you, then this also made Mantena great for access to public transit.Although ultimately the neighborhood and annual rent hikes drove us out, we loved the apartment units, building and staff and I enjoyed calling it home.
This is regarding my inquiry and tour as a prospective tenant. Location: This apartment is half way between 9th Avenue and 10th Avenue on West 37th Street. The area is a bit rough and industrial still. It is up and coming. It is not as developed as HK or Clinton Hill north of 42nd Street. The closest subways are 34th Street A/C/E or the new 7 train station. It is a hike though. Apartment: I reserved a tour online at their parent company Equity Apartments. I met the representative on-time and she showed me a studio. She was kind, bubbly, and helpful. The apartment was very nice and had exquisite finishings. Those extra touches that are worth the money....back splashes, washer/dryer, lighting features, and stunning ceiling to floor windows. It is a new building and you can really tell its in excellent condition and modern! The building is rather small, which can be good or bad. Nice experience, but just was not the area for me.
We moved into this building in December of 2014 and couldn't be happier to call Mantena home. From our initial visit and move-in and continued through to a transfer to a different unit in the building (different layout + terraces) the staff has bent over backwards to help us in any way we needed. Beth, Toni and Kristie have been a pleasure to work with every step of the way! The concierge staff and porters are wonderful. They're all extremely friendly and attentive, always ready with a smile and "Have a good day" or "Welcome home."The apartments themselves are beautiful, modern, and clean. They're very well constructed, so you almost never hear your neighbors. Any maintenance issues, which have been minor, are handled quickly. The building is well maintained and always clean and tidy in common areas. I didn't expect to like the neighborhood as much as I do, but it's so convenient to transportation. The elementary school that we're zoned for here has been wonderful for our two children. Having Brooklyn Fare right downstairs has been great, too, since we don't have to cart bags of groceries for blocks.All in all, we're so glad to have found this building.
I had lived in mantena in a studio apartment since 07/14 till 02/15 and unfortunately had to move out to a bigger apartment with my fiancé. I'm writing this review because it's truly an amazing building and people that work there are very professional and super nice. The amenities in the building are new and expensive. Every apartment has a lot of closet space (my studio apt had 2 closets + 1 walking closet), washer+dryer, gym, beautiful rooftop and Brooklyn Fare downstairs that even do delivery to the building :) but what makes this building a truly luxury is the people that work there. Whatever issue I had, the response was always prompt. Beth, from the management office, always answered all e-mails right away without leaving me wondering. Tony, the super, always helped with any problem I had (I didn't have much but still). And the doorman team is super nice. They always smile, always in a good mood. You don't find that much in New York. I highly recommend this building!
I am going on my second year here at Mantena and I will say it is one of the best places I have lived. The office staff is super friendly and extremely helpful. The doorman are great and all know me by name and always have the best treats for my dog. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
