Pros: pretty good amenities and the location is great (5 min or less uber to restaurants/bars; Royal Blue, Wild Salsa, and Irish pub beneath building); also great views - I was in apartment 2303 and had a clear view of Reunion Tower, BOA building, ATT, Pegasus, and surrounding buildings. Shared patio has impressive view of surrounding buildings - great for entertaining.

Cons: Management can often seem bad, but they respond better if you are assertive or firm with your requests; need to plan travel to/from school around rush hour if you don't want to waste time in traffic; one or more of the three elevators are frequently out of service.

Recommend leasing on a higher floor; louder tenants tend to rent on the lower floors and couples and young professionals tend to live in apartments on the upper floors. Also, the lower floors really hear the traffic.

This was a great place to live during summer clerkships - close to federal/state courthouse and most law firms.

Can take the train or bus to campus (15-20 minute total commute). The bus stops right outside of the apartment. The train is two blocks away. The apartments are decent and the management team has been very responsive and friendly.

My only complaint is that there has been construction in the lobby for the past 11 months, which is a bit frustrating.

Spacious apartments with a ton of space, management is very nice and responsive. Newly updated apartments, with a small but sufficient gym. Only issue is that only 2/3 elevators are ever working

Great value, especially if you want to be a bit separate from Rittenhouse

Great management. The rooms are also spacious. Just be aware, there is white carpet throughout.

Some issues given recent management company transition, particularly around the bus schedule (I commute to campus via the bus).

Charming building showing its age

7 building rating Reviewed by on

The Drake is a historic building and is charming with great decor, common areas, classic design. However, it is a very old building and this shows in some of the amenities, namely the gym, the plumbing, water, elevators, etc.

Blossom Plaza

Large apartment complex, front desk with multiple security staff patroling the area. 1 minute walking to the Chinatown Goldline station and only a 15 minute walk to Union Station which makes it easy to get around on Metro.

The building is located in a pretty nice location. It is right between the Navy yard and Capitol Hill riverfront. The building itself if fine but the highlight is the location.

Great location, good service

Apartments are well-cared for and management has been easy to work with. Service requests are completed in a very timely manner. Apartments are a good size with big closets and are newer/nicer than what tends to be available closer to campus, though this also makes them more expensive. Clubhouse has a gym, indoor pool, outdoor pool, community room, and tennis courts. Free parking in lot, additional charge for garage. Pets allowed with size/breed/number restrictions. Apartment complex is in a gated community that also contains single-family homes. The demographic is primarily couples/young families in the apartments and older individuals in the homes. Nice 1-mile paved path around the community with a pond in the middle. Great location for access to highways, Beachwood Mall/Legacy Village, and Pinecrest. Commute to campus for students is 25-30 min depending on traffic.

Laundry and dishwasher provided in every unit. Located near grocery stores, target, many restaurants and bars. Also less than a ten minute walk to Hahnemann. Private parking garage available on site as well.

Nice Apartment Complex w. Amenities & OK management

6 management rating Reviewed by on

I really enjoyed living at The Met during my first year. The building is an 8 minute drive to campus and the bus stop is right in front of the building. There was a pool, laundry on every floor, and a gym (my favorite part). There is parking and a front desk to manage packages, guests, and general security. There are nicer gyms at other apartments, but this one got the job done. A lot of the people that live in this building are FIDM students (FIDM is across the street), so there will be a younger crowd - but it isn't too noisy or anything. When I lived there, the management was OK - they weren't the most resident-friendly, but I've heard that mgmt has changed. It wasn't a bad place to live under that management, you just always knew that something you asked for was going to be a bigger deal than it really should be. (I lived there Fall 2017/Spring 2018)
