Packard's Corner Apt

I would say one of the biggest upsides of living at this building is the location. It is just two blocks away from the grocery store, also near an asian supermarket with a food court. There are also multiple transportation options to BU, which you will be thankful for when you get frustrated with the T. It's a block from the B line T stop, which goes directly to BU. Across the street is the 57 bus stop, which also goes directly to BU. If you get desperate, BU is also within a reasonable walking distance, and the BU shuttle will take you at least halfway from campus to FitRec - being close to the gym is great too. A couple blocks down Harvard Ave are a number of bars and restaurants that a lot of students hang out at too. The building itself is decently well kept. There is laundry in the building, and it's pretty quiet overall. The building is old though, so the halls a bit musty, and overall I'd say the apt interiors just don't look as "nice" as say some apts in brookline. Because the building is owned by corp mgmt, there are some problems with setting up UPS delivery rescheduling/authorization, but maybe that's a minor thing.
