Nice apartment building with good amenities

Pros:
- modern building with nice units
- lots of storage space
- very clean, very safe
- centrally located - easy to get to campus and bars/restaurants, but far enough away from all the commotion where it won't keep you up at night
- pet-friendly
- heated garage
- decent exercise rooms in building
- coffee maker in lobby of building
- shared clubhouse on 11th floor where you can host parties
- BBQ/pool area
- friendly staff, they can take care of any issues that arrive quickly

Cons:
- really expensive
- pool only gets a couple hours of sunlight each day because of the way it is situated in the center of the tall building

Great Apartment

Living at Domain has been great so far. Despite its size, it is quiet and feels like home. It has some good amenities, such as a gym and clubhouse, and is in the perfect location in downtown Madison. My unit is spacious, modern, and comfortable. I would recommend living here.

Ideal place for MBA's

My experience at Domain so far has been phenomenal. Management did an excellent job communicating with me throughout the lease signing process. They are very responsive. It was a stressful experience driving from across the country (California) to move into Domain. As you can imagine, unexpected delays created uncertainty around an arrival day/time. However, management stayed in contact with me and made the move-in process smooth. I arrived and my keys were ready / my apartment was clean / my reserved parking spot was empty.

Overall, the apartment is everything you'd expect from a luxury rental. The amenities are great: penthouse clubroom for communal use, a pool, grills, a gym, and a tanning booth. I would say that if you're a true gym rat the gym might not be as adequate as it doesn't have any machines for leg workouts. It does, however, have a squat rack. There is, however, an anytime fitness two blocks away.

The cleaning staff maintains the apartment; 99-100% of the time, the building is clean and quiet.

Over break, as temperatures dipped, I asked management to check in on my apartment and double check if the heat was on as I didn't want any pipes bursting in my apartment. I received a prompt response and they made sure everything in my unit was in order. I truly appreciated this.

Management will occasionally throw parties and invite all the residents. I have yet to attend done but it's nice that they try to create a communal feel amongst all the residents. Overall, I value the location of Domain (close to the business school) as well as to Downtown. Most things are a stone's throw away. It's what you'd expect from a premium luxury apartment.

Worth the price

It's on the more expensive end of apartments, but is worth it because of how close it is to everything, as well as the great amenities. I have never heard the neighbors, and the floorplans are pretty spacious. The only downside is that the management/staff can sometimes not be as friendly or helpful as you would have hoped. Additionally, your packages are delivered into their offices. That can be a plus because your packages are secure, but can sometimes be a hassle as you can really only pick up your packages when the office is open.

Modern, clean building with plenty of amenities

Overall I'm satisfied with the Domain. The apartment is really nice - it's all very modern and clean, although I don't feel like it's worth the amount of money I pay. Considering moving next year to a cheaper apartment. The perks are nice - cool clubhouse on the 11th floor, fitness center on the first floor, and a coffee machine with free coffee in the lobby (it's broken about 20% of the time, though).

Be careful when signing a lease with these guys. They sprang some surprise fees on us the day we moved in, and we have found them to be unethical on two separate occasions regarding financial issues.

One benefit of living here is that lots of other grad students live in the building. If you are considering moving to the Domain, connect with a second year student because they can get a $500 bonus for referring you to sign a lease. Then you can split the bonus and both end up with $250.

Convenient, but expensive.

Very nice building, great management team, but you pay for it.

Has free Coffee, gym, pet wash, skylounge, pool, close to downtown, and great management. Comes with a free storage locker in the basement as well.

Great Spot, A Little Pricey For Most

Very quiet, mostly professionals and grad students from my experience. Having the gym and pool is nice from an amenity standpoint. There's been some staff turnover, but overall they are helpful and quick to respond.
