Olive DTLA

Olive DTLA is in a great up-and-coming location downtown called South Park. The area is very new and has a security and cleaning service that patrol the streets. The apartment itself is great. It has a business center, pool, and gym. There are tons of community events.

Great Location for Metro Commuters

The units are fairly nice and fairly priced for DTLA. You won't be in the super cenral part of DTLA, but it's a quick walk to the Pico Metro stop. About a 10 minute walk to the grocery store.

We've had issues with the complex shutting off water frequently due to pipes or something. Gets annoying but that's the only thing I haven't liked about living here.

Great location and amenities, some issues with transparency from management

Overall, I've been very happy with the building. I get to be in DTLA and close to everything here while paying slightly less than other buildings since we are on the outskirts/most recently developed areas. Metro is about 0.3-0.4 miles away, which is convenient. When there are service requests for any issues with the apartment unit, the response is extremely fast. The biggest issues have been the lack of transparency from management regarding problems with the water. They have now had to shut the water off at least 5 times (from 8am-5pm) over the last few months and haven't provided reasons for why, despite being asked multiple times.
Otherwise, amenities are great and location is convenient.

Mostly good with some bad luck

Most of my experience at OLiVE DTLA has been pretty good. The amenities are great - nice pool, sundeck, jacuzzi, full-sized gym, clubhouse for working. The building is great in that regard. My place itself is a studio, small but efficient. Overall that's fine, but it is pretty expensive for what I have. Unfortunately, there was recently a massive water leak two stories above my apartment. Nothing of mine was damaged, but they had to tear out a significant portion of my walls and ceiling. The construction has been slow and poorly managed - they did not cover any of my furniture or other items when doing the demolition, leaving everything covered in drywall dust. Management is "working on a credit" for some sort of free rent... TBD on if it's significant enough to make up for the giant hassle.

Overall, downtown was great for first year life as many of your classmates will choose to live in this area. But, it can be a gross area that is still up and coming in some senses. I'm moving west next year, but don't regret living here.

Pretty good place to live

I have been living at OLiVE DTLA for about 8 months and have very few complaints about my experience. Management has been very responsive to any requests I've had, and the maintenance team is usually prepared to fix things within 24 hours. The only complaints I do have is that utilities can sometimes fail on us (this last week hot water has not been guaranteed) and other issues like fire alarms going off at 3AM have been annoying. Other than that, great place to live.
