Safe and spacious
My experience at this apartment building has been great! I love that there is so much to do around me and that the building comes with a free gym membership. The management team and front desk security really go above and beyond here. They make sure residents are not only safe and satisfied, but comfortable and feel at home.
Great for walking to and from CC
This apartment has been a great place to live. There are a lot of things to do within walking distance; these include museums, restaurants, convenience stores, Septa BSL, Whole Foods, places to workout and Kelly Drive. Overall, my stay at NXNW has been rather pleasant.
The Drake is an amazing elevator building with affordable rent! It has everything you need and is clean and quiet! I am obsessed! The management helped to ensure I had everything I needed when I moved in. I've never had an issue with anything yet and the online portal is great!
Best I've lived in!
Great service in a classic building, with everything important to me: security desk, gym/pool/sauna, and a great view (I'm on a high floor.) Security, maintenance, and management people are tops - competent and great attitudes. Lots of diversity, and there is a courtesy bus to center city, the university area, and shopping.
Excellent Lenox Club
My family has been living in Lenox for 18 months as of February and so far we quite enjoy our living experience here. We are so glad to have so much space in such a nice building with a gym, nail salon, massage studio, and lounges. Unlike other expensive building in Pentagon, Lenox offers competitive price and great location to Pentagon metro, public buses as well as the amazing Pentagon City Mall. Additionally, we like the 24 hour front desk service and friendly/responsive maintenance staff who always go above and beyond to assist with residents' inquities. Definitely a 5 star living experience!
I have been a resident since less than a year and it has fairly been a good experience thus far. Management and staff is generally good at their job and do listen up in case of concerns. Apartment building has an indoor swimming pool which I am a big fan of and has a decent sized gym. Better than the ones I have seen at other center city apartments.
Quiet and spacious apartment with an balcony
OFT is one of the nicest building in Philadelphia, flats facing north and south philly are awesome. Each flat has a beautiful balcony for summer or storing extra things. Gym in the building is one of nicest apartment gym I have seen in Philly. It is a quiet place but very close to Center city restaurants.
Love Museum Towers
Nothing super fancy but great management, large spaces, and very safe. They should allow dogs.
Great affordable luxury apartments!
Great quality and value for the Fairmount area. You are close to some of the best restaurants and bars this neighborhood has to offer. For the price you pay, you absolutely get your money's worth. It is a great
Foundry Lofts has been a wonderful place to live! I have a wonderful apartment with very cool architectural features (exposed brick, a cool concrete column, visible and chic pipe- and ductwork). My windows are huge, the ceilings are high, and it's SO QUIET. The neighborhood was perfect when I moved in--a beautiful oasis in the middle of the city. It's getting a bit built up now, and is often filled with annoying Hillfolk and commuters, but it's very convenient being so close to a metro, a gym, a grocery store, and a bunch of bars. My apartment is well laid-out and comfortable, though the windows are a bit drafty, the washer sometimes leaks, and the dryer doesn't really dry so well. Still, I love my apartment! I'd probably stay forever, except I may someday price out of the discounted rent program in which I am currently enrolled (not close yet, though!). Also, they're planning to put up a building right in front of my window (they've already done it to the people on the other side of the building) which'd block my view of the stadium.
Overall, I love my apartment. I wish we had a pool, and maybe some storage downstairs (there is ZERO storage in the apartment), and that management was a little more competent (Ekow is AMAZING, but everyone else seems to be phoning it in
The good 'ol Drake
The Drake is an iconic tall-rise building in Philly. The location cannot be surpassed, which is mostly what you are paying for. The quality of the place is fine, everything works and looks okay and clean. It's really quite a nice place, just you will definitely be paying a premium for the location.
Great location and staff, close to metro, but a little pricey
Lenox Park is great-- responsive and friendly management and staff, clean hallways and common areas, nice pool/ hot tub/ gym, and sunny, spacious rooms. It's a little overpriced, but part of what you pay for is the location: 2 min walk to the Silver Spring metro, 10 min walk to downtown SS, 15 min walk to Rock Creek Park for hiking and biking. The side of the building facing away from the metro is quiet and has a nice view of trees and the pool. All rooms have a small balcony and most have large walk-in closets. Overall, I'd highly recommend Lenox Park apartments.
Not necessarily the most luxurious of apartment buildings - apartments could use renovation. However, safe, clean, comfortable, great utilities, and very friendly and professional staff. AMAZING value for the money. Wish they allowed dogs.
A Good Start
The lenox club overall is a nice apartment. Management is always very accommodating and the front desk is available 24/7 and willing to help. Gym and Optional "gym membership like" classes are a plus. My favorite part is location I can see all of D.C. from my window and yet Im not stuck in the bustle of the city. I am a 5 minute walk from two different metro station and a mall. The Pentagon is basically across the street so all public transportation is available. The apartment itself is very spacious with large wall covering windows, has a moderate sized kitchen and dual closets. To my knowledge some kitchens have been upgraded. Crystal City is within walking distance for restaurants and bars. Pets are allowed, there is of course a deposit and a monthly charge but it isn't as steep as other places I checked out. The have a small pet area by the grills but it is big enough for dogs to run around. Only wish is that the gate was smaller. With a small dog I worry I will throw a ball and she will squeeze through the spaces. The only internet provider available is Xfinity, it is not through the complex but just for the area in general. It is fast though, no significant problems with it yet, even during storms it may slow down but never for long. You are charged for electricity and water. My water is anywhere from 30 to 40 and electricity I have seen as low as 20. There is a Harris and Teeter on the other side of the Mall about a 10 minute walk otherwise you can take a 10 min bus ride on the 9A and there is a Giant, a Shoppers, a Target,and just about every other store. Parking I have not utilized yet but I inquired it is about $75 a month I believe and guest parking has been a sore spot on other reviews from tenants that have lived here longer since it went from being free to a charge. However parking on the street is free from 6 pm to 8 am so its not a huge inconvenience if you time it correctly and pay the meter for anytime used outside of that period.
Phenomenal living situation
This is a beautiful apartment building which is located in the old Alexander Graham Bell telephone company building. Because of this, it's extremely spacious and extremely quite. My apartment has beautiful high ceilings and a lot of room. The staff is extremely good, from the front door to the management to the maintenance. I know a handful of other residents, all of whom are extremely courteous and friendly. Most people who live here are working professionals or have small families. The location is phenomenal - right near the Benjamin Franklin Parkway (Art Museum, Barnes, Whole Foods) as well as close to the train and trolley. The gym is small but functional - could use some updating but is well maintained. Amenities are not included and the rent has gone up since I first moved, but I have no intention of moving any time soon.
