Worst building I've lived.Management, lazy, except morning security guy and Raphael. Super is almost the laziest employee the building must have..Rooftop all year dirty so I guess you'd move to a place where some neighbors behave like pigs.Construction quality extremely cheap and you pay what would in Manhattan....Finally I move out days ago and was the best decisions I've made after the worst that I've took!.

This is the absolute worst building I have ever lived in. They have a new and even worse management team every year. There's also already been 3 supers since the building opened. The utility bills for an apartment range from $300 to $700 a month. The building refuses to fix half the things you ask them to fix by simply not responding to your emails. Believe me when I say this is just the tip of the iceberg. Half of the amenities they advertise tenants simply do not have. There is also theft in the building as the doormen leave at 6 everyday. Please avoid living here at all costs. Most people try to break their leases.

Be careful to note that your actual rent will be much higher than the advertised rate. The management company has a habit of pretend-offering "two months free rent," only to mention in the fine print that the advertised rental rate is actually the "net effective rent." That means that they calculated the two months' free rent into their posted rate, and that your actual rate will be several hundred dollars higher each month. Is it really free if the price of those two "free" months is just redistributed across the other ten months? Stay away from these guys; if they they think this kind of scammy sleight-of-hand nonsense is acceptable for their rental advertisements, then what else will they trick you about?

Pros:

The only saving grace is that the super, Henry, is very helpful and responsive, as are the doormen: Shpend and Rafael.

Cons:

This was without a doubt the WORST experience I've ever had in a rental. It was so bad I sometimes felt like all the residents were being punked, because it was inconceivable that such a terrible building passed inspection.In a nutshell:The building LOOKS nice but was built with terrible materials and with as many shortcuts as possible. - No insulation was used at all, along with flimsy PTAC units which made for FREEZING temperatures in the winter, along with monthly electric bills $500-$1000. I kid you not.- Paint is terrible. You can literally rub it off with a finger.- Plumbing sucks.- Rooftop decks which were heavily advertised with grills actually aren't legally able to have grills and so they were removed- Gym TV's that weren't working for most of the year, and now that they are, only have basic tv channels. No cable.- No sound-proofing- no blinds or curtains included for the custom windows.- After moving in the private parking downstairs was sold to another company to become a public parking garage. No security as the parking garage has very easy access to the building.- Management is terrible. Even after voicing multiple complaints, nobody would respond until residents banded together on our own to seek restitution. And even after that, all they gave were verbal promises.I could go on, but it would make me too angry. Very glad to be out of there.The other residents are also really nice and friendly.Don't live here.
