It does the job
I like the Met! Our apartment was newly renovated and has new appliances with laminate "hardwood" floors. The building is nice with a great pool and good amenities. The front desk staff are incredibly nice and greet us by name every time we come home. There's a bus stop across the street that will take you straight to campus. Being downtown means that it's fairly noisy but that's just what it's like living in a city.
The Met Review
It has so far been a great experience. The floor plans are spacious and the management and the concierge are very helpful when it comes to any problems you may face. They have secure package delivery, and amazon/food deliveries that are delivered to your doorstep. Moreover, the amenities are good enough. There is a patio area, pool, hot tubs and an indoor/outdoor gym. It is also pet friendly! We did have a pest problem, but the apartment was quick to help us rectify it. The location is great in terms of being close to campus and having various transit options nearby. In terms of safety, the building itself is very safe and secure. The surrounding area, however, just depends and is not in control of the building. Nonetheless, I would say that this is a safer area/part of DTLA.
Beautiful apartment if you are ok being far from school
I moved to DC with my fiancé, knowing we wanted to be down in navy yard. The building we have we highly recommend, it is beautiful and scenic with a responsive management company. The downside is for me personally, I have a longer metro ride than most. However I had to get a car in third year regardless so I have ample ways of getting to school.
amazing location, amenities, and community
Located right off of Spring Garden and 18th St, NorthxNorthwest is just a few blocks away from the Broad Street Line (Spring Garden Stop), with a Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts on your way to the subway.
There's a Whole Foods, Target, another Starbucks, CVS, restaurants, pizza shops, all within a few blocks of the building.
It is PET FRIENDLY <3 with a designated dog park for residents. The residents are mostly young professionals, I see lots of people in scrubs too which is nice.
The gym is huge, elite, and newly renovated.
The rooftop deck is beautiful, with great views of the entire city.
It is a short 15 min walk away from center city, so you're super close, but you get to stay away from the noisy city. There's really no noise, beeping, alarms from the street that I can hear.
The concierge staff is friendly and collects packages for us, the facilities are always clean, and maintenance responds quickly.
Great deal, good location
I love the location of the Lenox Club. While it isn't the most up-to-date facility in the neighborhood, you can't beat the rent. If convenience, great floor plans, and friendly management are important to you, I recommend looking here.
The downside is the outdated amenities and small gym.
Lovely apartment, questionable management
This is probably the nicest apartment I have ever lived in. The utilities and appliances are not necessarily the best, but the tall ceilings, huge windows, and exposed brick make it beautiful. Plus, it’s a great location and beautiful view of the river. The only downside is it can be hard to communicate with management. Also, it’s about a 20 minute drive to campus.
The Met is a solid building that is conveniently located to transit for quick access to campus. There are newer and more shinier buildings in the area, but this one provides a bit more value for your dollar in my opinion. There have been some ongoing maintenance issues that, I presume, have simply to do with the building being a bit older. However, the interior of the building and units is updated and nice.
I love pretty much everything except there seems to be a roach problem so that’s not great
Kind of awful management
Pricing and apartment are great management is awful. They also let people smoke in the building and in the courtyard weed and cigarettes so the whole building reeks
Downtown Oakland Apartment Complex-Kind Pricy but cool area
My apartment is just under 800 square feet. I have a small balcony, laundry inside of my apartment as well as a walk in closet and a large bedroom. Many of the apartments are updated. My rent is 2300, but $200 extra is for parking, water, sewage, and garbage (there are trash shoots and you can leave large items for disposal in the garbage area).
The leasing office is nice and you can get cheaper units (2100) if they are smaller. there are also studios available.
My apartment is huge for the price! Total, our unit is 1200 square feet and we have an in-unit washer/dryer.
Overall positive experience and great location
I really like the Bixby. The location is wonderful. It's 15 minutes to the Eastern Market metro and 15 minutes to the Navy Yard metro. It's an easy walk to great local businesses and parks in Navy Yard, Barracks Row, and Eastern Market. There's a Harris Teeters in a 5 minute walk and Trader Joe's in 15-20 minute walk. It takes me 30 minutes door to door to get to GW Law. It's a really safe area as well.
It's a very cost effective, especially for this area, and comes with a small gym, pool, and outdoor courtyards and a roof. Overall, maintenance is responsive and pretty good and management is mostly responsive. They've handled covid ok.
The one bedroom apartment has plenty of storage and is comfortable for 2 people and spacious for one person. All apartments are recently renovated.
The apartments have beautiful floor to ceiling windows which let in a lot of natural light. There is a 24/7 front desk attendant who also receives packages for residents. The building is about 4 blocks from the Broad Street Line and there are plenty of great restaurants nearby.
Pricey but worth it
The grand has been great in every way. It is expensive, especially if you like in a larger apartment or require parking, but it has been worth it for me. I have a large one bedroom apartment that has had no problems. When there has been any issue, getting repairs was easy. Though I have not used the pool or gym too much due to the pandemic, all of it is very nice. Not to mention it is a private and safe community with a red line I can see from my window and any shopping you need within a 10 minute drive. There are also plenty of restaurants and shopping options within walking distance.
