Recent Dittmar Company reviews
Would Recommend, reasonable and well established
The building is a bit older, but well established with good management and continuous updates. The amenities are great and the metro is easily walkable. Maintenance is quick and we have not had any issues.
Solid Apartment but family building
Overall the building is very nice. It has excellent facilities and recently redone fitness center. Rents tend to be a bit high but not terribly so. Very close to transit.
Richmond Square Apartments Review
Great apartment, a bit overpriced
Great apt for value
The apt is huge and has great amenities for its price. It is 1 block from the metro so good location, but Clarendon is probably a bit better than Courthouse. The pools are both great amenities and they are redoing the gym, basketball, and racketball court. Downside is that it is an old apartment so it doesn't look very nice or have a fancy aesthetic. We have also had some problems with our appliances here and there but not a huge issue. Management is responsive to fixing but sometimes it takes multiple attempts at fixing for it to work. Would recommend.
Great Place to Live
Gave it a 9 instead of a 10 because it's a little pricey for a student, but it's still reasonable given the value of the place, and they really do deserve a 10 by any other standard because it's worth every penny. I lived here before going to school, and chose to stay after starting school because it's a great place. There are 2BRs and 3BRs available, which will probably help shave down the price if you can find good roommates.
VSP is located right outside of VA Square Metro Station. It's a residential neighborhood in between two relatively commercial neighborhoods (Clarendon and Ballston) so traffic is not as heavy, but still within walking distance to bars and restaurants (and the Ballston Mall). It is also within walking distance to the George Mason University Arlington Campus Library, and the Arlington County Public Library.
The staff is really responsive to request and accommodations. Administrative staff goes the extra mile to help accommodate your needs to the extent that they can. There's an onsite maintenance crew that typically fills your maintenance requests within 24 hours even if it's not urgent. Aside of crew that cleans the common areas on a daily basis, there are also routine quarterly air filter changes, HVAC unit inspections, and exterior window cleanings. Staff from top to bottom are all extremely friendly and professional.
Common areas include a fireplace lounge, a community room, a gym, a business center, a game room, and a courtyard. There is a 24-hour staffed concierge for package and access control. Security personnel will come patrol the common areas and the parking garage at night (in-door parking is $50/month.) There are also storage room and restricted-access bike racks for rent, or if you don't want to spend the money, there are also public bike racks in the garage.
Convenient location, responsive staff, not cheap
I had a mostly positive experience living at Quincy Plaza. The units are spacious with large windows. The maintenance staff is very responsive and always resolved issues quickly. Perks of the building include package pick up at the front desk, 24/7 security, trash chutes on each floor, and onsite gym, pool, business center and community/game room. The location is convenient and equidistant to Ballston and Virginia Square metro stations. Short walk to Ballston Quarter Mall, Harris Teeter, Giant, CVS, and many restaurants, medical offices and gyms.
The units in Quincy Plaza are not cheap and you should expect your rent increase by about $50-$100 each year. The interiors are clean and functional but not very modern (carpet, outdated cabinets, vertical blinds). Since most (all?) of the units are carpeted, the building is quiet. While this is a non-smoking building, management does not enforce this and certain areas smell like smoke.
Courtland Towers Apartments Review
Great building overall, just a little on the pricey side.
Close to everything you need for very fair price
I have nothing but good things to say about Courtland Towers. The apartment has great location (3 min walk to the Court House metro station, 1 stop away from Clarendon, and 2 stops from being in DC). The place comes with great amenities as well including a indoor pool, outdoor pool, driving range, and gym. The management is also very good as well with a front desk that is manned 24/7.
Great for those working in Virginia. Cheapest of the luxury courthouse apartments. Key bridge traffic is a nightmare though.
Clean, modern luxury building in the heart of Ballston/Virginia Square. Rent includes all utilities except cable/internet. Parking in the garage under the building is only $50/month! Perfect for young professionals including medical residents. Only a 15 minute drive door-to-door to GW Hospital. Great location around lots of restaurants and easily accessible to I-66 and I-395/I-495. Have lived here 7 years and love it!
I lived here for the past three years and my experience has been grrat. The apartments are nenovated and have their own laundry which is really a big big plus for a medical resident. The staff are very helpful when I need anything to be fixed, etc. The apartment is very spacious. I have used the business center, the pool, the gym and the free day parking at ease. There are two things to be aware of. You have to have a car to live here as the metro station is a bit far (pentagon city is the closest). There is a bus station right across the street but still I feel for a medical resident, it is important either to live by a metro station or to have a car. Also, the apartments by the highway can get noisy. The other sode (gulf club) is way more quiet.
Little More Bang for your Buck
Courtland Towers is pretty good. Never had any problems with management. Nice appliances (range, top loading LG washer). Countertops are a weak point- older and white. Pretty spacious. Mine is like 770 square feet. Parking is extra. 100 dollars for a tandem spot (parking back to back with only one exit), 75 for 1 spot. No pets. Really close to the metro, about .4 miles I believe. Less than a 10 minute walk and 2 stops away from foggy bottom. Les than a 10 minute drive to the hospital without traffic. Nice pool, nice gym, nice community center if you ever want to have a little party. Very safe- literally two blocks from the Arlington courthouse. Other than being a little pricey (but still cheaper than foggy), I'd recommend. Very close to Clarendon bars. However, people here don't seem to really interact.
It's been great - little to no complaints
Good option close to the metro, cheap enough
It's a solid building. No big complaints. Very close to metro for access to DC/Tysons. Not as expensive as some surrounding buildings, but also not quite as nice. Spacious, good closet space, good gym, good mail/delivery service.
Units and amenities are nice, but lack upgrades you would get if you paid more for similar buildings in the area. Management is not the most responsive or helpful, but generally did not bother me.
