Unit was not move in ready. Neighborhood is absolutely awful. Promises made about parking by Dean when we viewed have not been addressed. Hallways are constantly filthy due to neighbors trash and pets. Floors and areas around the building INCLUDING the courtyard are filthy with trash. What's the point in having cameras and management living in the building if issues aren't addressed and identified. Will NOT be renewing my lease unless BIG changes are made.
Like I said before love living here love working in this area of Kensington they are some bad they are some good but that’s everywhere you go
I really like this home! The property management is very responsive, the building amenities are great, and the unit itself is beautiful. My only complaints are that my move-in process was a bit confusing—I had some trouble getting my keys, getting onto the online portal, and so forth, though this was all resolved within about two weeks—and the walls are pretty thin. Other than that, my apartment has been wonderful!
I love the building it’s so dope , the colors the decor ,the gym and shops on the ground floor as well as security feats ,maintenance & security is very responsive they’re awesome my only issue is the appliances kept malfunctioning before I could use them .And my ceiling fan & light were being controlled by someone else . It would randomly come on in the middle of the night and during the day & when I walk past it and it made me feel uncomfortable & unsure
J-Centrel has created a amazing modern set up in what used to be a furniture warehouse. The community programs that are set up bring a positive light to Kensington. I am proud to be a resident.
The rental was an old furniture store. They kept a lot of the old wood flooring and structure, so there were a lot of loose nails in my unit. Paint splatters all over the floors and walls, but not enough to warrant concern. The security guards patrolling the building are amazing and accommodating. I love the neighborhood since it's central to many locations I go to. I can already feel the changes that this building has brought to the neighborhood. The Shift team has been a huge asset for this.
The coffee shop downstairs is amazing and the courtyard, lobby, mailroom feels so colorful and creative. Really nice to have all of the businesses downstairs. The apartments are really nice, not too modern/ cold - just warm and welcoming. Love the windows and light.
I love my place, I love that I have a gym in my building, I love how close it is to work, I love my loft, I love the little shops on the ground floor,
Upon moving in, the only worry I had was the neighborhood. Security (especially nights and weekends) has help me feel safe around the building. The rent incentive w/ community volunteer work was one of the top reasons why I chose to move here. Cons: unclear terms of the rent special upon moving in. I was under the impression I was paying one price moving in and was told another after moving in. Also there is no recycling & parking can be difficult at night. Lastly, communication with PM is slow.
