Like it so much, renewing lease for 2 years

Posted 11 months ago

We live on the river side. It’s so much fun to see all the wildlife; ducks, muskrats, beavers, other waterfowl and birds, during boating season, on warm weekends there is an endless parade of private boats, kayaks and paddle borders. We have a lovely view of the city at night, reflecting in the river water. The Ohio Street boat launch is adjacent. We are on a bicycle path that can take us to outer harbor. Quiet building. Respectful neighbors. It has been easy to live here. Perfect!

This is a very nice building with a very responsible management. I'm due to leave soon, as we are in need of a bigger place but it's quite sad to leave such a wonderful house. It's a great place!

It has been great, outside of the horrible timing with Covid and now 2 bridges being worked on while my time here, it has been a great experience. seems to be a lot of car horns every sunday morning, and in general a noisy area with GM, trains and such.

Nice location, building was built a bit on the cheap side

Posted 11 months ago

Very nice location. Building is a bit cheap. Shower leaks, master bedroom and bathroom are not well insulated so they are cold or hot depending on season. Leads to expensive electric bills for heat and AC. Master bathroom actually has no vent at all for heat/AC. Feels like outside. Landlord is great, very attentive. Just seems like savarino went with the lowest bidder when looking at these issues and overall finish of the apartment. Cheap flooring, carpeting is average at best.

Overall, great place to live in terms of quality and location. I wish the maintenance portion was a higher priority. Many times things are not actually fixed or it takes awhile to get things addressed

BRL is great!!

Posted 11 months ago

I'm a new tenant but am quickly acclimating and have found management to be extremely helpful, lots of freindly, welcoming neighbors (humans and dogs!) Great location for enjoying outdoors. Kayaking next doors, great green spaces for dog walks and love the combination of historic Old First Ward and growing new neighborhood along the Buffalo River. And, the apartments are wonderful.

Attentive and caring management

Posted 1 year ago

BRL is a unique property, right along the water’s edge. The design, color scheme and appliances are all gorgeous! This kitchen is spacious & fully designed with a foodie in mind! In-unit laundry is a dream come true! We have a diverse range of tenants, who are all so courteous to one another! The gem of BRL is truly the VP himself, Luke Cusack. Attention to detail, timely response and open communication; just a few of his fine qualities! Savarino properties runs a fine ship! Dog lovers, too!

Pros: Apartment size is generous; layout is great; Luke is phenomenal; great sunsets Cons: walls/floors are very thin, people smoke inside often, some let their dogs “go” wherever and don’t clean up

My opinion of Bflo River Landing

Posted 1 year ago

Don't appreciate the messes the dogs leave in elevators and entryways. I do not own a pet and did not know how many lived in the building. The elevators and garage doors seem to take turns breaking down monthly. Love the balcony overlooking water and sunsets but very noisy from business across river, nonstop. I appreciate Luke, couldn't ask for a nicer manager!

FANTASTIC PLACE

Posted 1 year ago

This is by far the best place place I’ve lived. Luke Cusack is extremely attentive and the two minor things I’ve had to call Martin for were looked at and fixed within a half hour of when he came up. (Which was the very same day that I called him.). I receive an E-Mail every Monday from Luke updating me on any and all issues pertaining to the building. Like also sends upbeat messages every so often to us and you can tell he truly cares about the tenants in the building.

The process has been seamless, comfortable, and gratifying. I love my apartment and all it offers me. The neighbors are all great, and I feel very safe. The noise is a little much, but that's apartment living, I guess.

Love living at Buffalo River Landing!

Posted 1 year ago

We love living at Buffalo River Landing. The neighborhood is great. The views are wonderful--downtown, river, lake. The building is very accessible. Luke Cusak, our rental manager, is outstanding in terms of caring for the residents and the property. He keeps us up to date with all things important through weekly emails. During COVID, Luke has been a champion for promoting safety precautions; I have no doubt that his actions have saved lives. You will never find a better landlord.

I was one of the first people to move into Buffalo River Landing when it opened. I have always had a positive experience in the building and with building management. Luke is an excellent communicator and keeps all residents informed of building related issues, maintenance activities and required systems inspections. He has been incredibly resourceful throughout COVID-19 by providing regular updates and sharing information.
