the prime at arlington
Overall great experience. They are quick to fix any problems with the apartment. It would have been nice to get some more support from the management company at times.
Mordern luxury apartment in Arlington
Living at Lofts 590 has been a great experience. I wasn't necessarily looking to live in a huge apartment complex, but I wanted to find a place that was well managed with a gym and Lofts 590 was a great fit. The staff is really friendly, the metro is nearby, and the surrounding area is extremely safe. It's still more expensive than I would have liked, but I've been very happy living here.
Great Place to be in
2201 Pershing offers exceptional amenities and a lot of space in the apartment room. Management is great and the location is perfect just on the corner of Arlington Blvd and Pershing, it gives you the tranquility you are looking for in a neighborhood with a very close proximity to the Georgetown area and Washington Mall. Highly recommended.
This apartment complex is great value and is very close to the Arlington GUTS shuttle.
2201 Wilson - Great place to live!
Very friendly apartment complex with a lot of dogs. Newly renovated common area and gym. Could not have asked for a more spacious, clean, and friendly place
I am very happy with the building- have a newly renovated one bedroom with plenty of closet space, granite countertops, new floors, and new appliances. It's a short walk to the Pentagon City Metro (maybe five minutes) and uber/lyft is also always nearby. The location has everything needed in walking distance- Costco, pharmacy, supermarkets, mall, etc. It's a suburban location but easy to get to central DC in about 20 minutes. The amenities are also great and the management is responsive to requests. They take good care of the building and we recently had all of the hallways renovated.
Nice and relatively cheap alternative to living within DC
I recently moved to the DC area to go to grad school at Georgetown and before making the move I looked at 20+ apartment complexes in various neighborhood of DC and Arlington. Water Park Towers came out as the best combination of price, amenities, and location for me. The building itself is fairly old (built in the 80’s) but all of the residential floors (hallways and apartments) have recently been renovated and are modern. There is also currently a project going on to renovate the lobby and whole first floor which is supposed to look very nice once completed. My one bedroom apartment is pretty spacious and has a balcony, hardwood floors (carpet in the bedroom), new kitchen appliances, and in-unit washer/dryer. The building has a free gym which is decent and the outside pool is very nice. Although I wish I knew ahead of time that when it is open during the summer season, it only opens at noon (or maybe 11). Garage parking is pretty affordable at $90/month and the other people living in the building are very nice- combination of some students and older people working in the area, everyone is pretty quiet. My biggest and only real complaint about the building is the shared utilities. All utilities used by the building are pooled monthly and then split up and billed to everyone based on apartment occupancy. So far, for 2 people living in a one bedroom, utilities have averaged between $150 and $200 per month (not including cable/internet) which I think is too high. Otherwise, I’ve enjoyed living in the building. There are many restaurants and Whole Foods within walking distance and the Crystal City metro station (blue and yellow lines) is a 3 minute walk away. Getting to Georgetown is a little rough, but otherwise it’s a very convenient location.
Great apartment although a bit expensive
Great apartment and location. People who work there are really friendly. Great neighborhood.
Great value in awesome location
It's been great. Affordable for the area, has everything I need. Central Air (no AC) which isn't awesome but otherwise building is good.
Love the Prime
Courthouse is a great neighborhood for couples. It's conveniently located between Rosslyn and Courthouse and on the orange line. The Prime is a 15 minute walk to Clarendon shops and restaurants and a 20 minute walk to the GUTS shuttle. With close proximity to both the metro and route 50, you can get into DC in 10 to 15 minutes.
The Prime apartments are upgraded with hardwood floors, granite countertops, and modern appliances. The building itself has a concierge at the front desk most hours of the day to accept packages and food deliveries.
We love 71 Broadway
We love our large studio apartment at 71 Broadway. We have lived her for 3 years and the management and front desk staff are very friendly and attentive. We will be sad to leave when our lease ends (the rent is going up too high for us). Love the sunlight that streams in from our windows overlooking the church next door and the high ceilings!
Decent apartment, but very far west!
The building is pretty compact as there are only 8 floors. No doorman on the 55th Street entrance where I live but it's okay. The area is not the most well lit or safe. There are a few project housing units nearby and the neighborhood gets quite dark at times.
D'agastino and Dunkin' Donughts nearby are useful but overpriced. The new FIKA across the street is a great weekend haunt to just relax and people watch.
The apartment itself is a very typical high rise apartment - wooden floors, small bathroom (outdated fixtures), and small kitchen.
Neighbors are pretty quiet and not bothersome.
At night you'll hear the gallop of horses walking back to their station after giving Central Park tourists a ride.
The main downside is the few avenue walks to the nearest subway (and they're the longer avenues).
Overall, management is nice and decently responds well.
Modern comforts, great service, floor to ceiling windows
We love our apartment, especially our in-unit washer/dryer. The door men and crew are as nice as can be, and the gym has everything one needs. The roof is a great spot in the Spring/Summer. Our dog loves her neighbors, both canine & human, and takes full advantage of our floor to ceiling windows, taking in the beautiful view.
Good value but bad location
I loved the doormen (and all of the staff) and the fact that there was a gym and rooftop, but the location is terrible - right across from public housing and far from the subway. Management company isn't quick to respond to complaints. Gym always broken.
Good apartments, in need of some renovation. New ownership likely to upscale. Rents are very reasonable for manhattan. A two bedroom with dining room costs at least 20% more in most parts of new york city. Also includes a small gym on the second floor which is open to residents including rent.
