Good for the price!
I would say Rosslyn Heights is an overall good choice. It's relatively inexpensive compared to DC prices and relatively convenient - about a 10 minute walk from the GUTS and just another 10-15 minute drive over the bridge. However, if I did it over again I would live inside the District and likely much closer to the actual campus. Rosslyn is fine, but it's a little suburban and residential. I think there is more within a short walking distance available in DC and it would be nice to have the option to walk to school, weather-permitting. In terms of this building, though, the leasing office is fine - we have two pools and one gym (it's small though and, at times, the machines have gone broken with no fixing for weeks - it can be hard to snag a machine during a busy time).
If you love being pushed around by a large corporation, you'll love living with them too!
These guys will smile and shake your hand as you move out and then sue you three weeks later.
The gym, among many other things is outdated and most things that are supposed to work hardly do such as many locks, the common room TVs, intercoms etc.
Ask the managers to do something simple for you, like give you a key and then expect to ask them 3 times before they take a week to do it.
And google the pictures of mice living under the bathtub. Its real.
Management not helpful/competent
Had to get various things fixed in the apt over the course of my rental lease. Often took more than one phone call to get a response. Took over a month for fix a leaky toilet. Management also lied about not being able to replace the sensor key when it was damaged, and after losing it, then reversed their statement, saying that damaged keys could be replaced free of charge. actually had to call the regional office at one point to get management to comply with the requests to fix damaged items in the apt. i would NOT recommend living here. overpriced and management not helpful.
Quiet and Safe
Great location and excellent management. The area surrounding Rosslyn Heights feels really safe. I can walk outside past midnight alone without feeling unsafe. It's a pretty short walk to the Georgetown Shuttle (GUTS) and the total commute to campus is ~20 minutes. I've generally been pleased with the amenities as well.
Nice staff, spacious building and good locale in Arlington with easy access to the city, shops and restaurants. Staff is very courteous and attentive and remembers people's names which is helpful. I would recommend this place to newcomers to the area.
What is there to say...
Living in the city is expensive. Sometimes, you can have a decent place and a good location, which is what the Buchanan is. Sure, it may take them hours if not days to process packages. Sure, sometimes they turn off the water in the middle of the night/day (on the regular!). Sure, we have the occasional mouse. You can't beat the location and the price is decent, so I deal.
Great value in Reston
A little far from Washington, but not without its charms. The location is convenient to the metro, which is a major plus. It's also near restaurants and shopping, while providing decent transportation options to the international airport and to the area malls. It's safe, and relatively quiet, if that's important to you. While by no means is it cheap, you get parking and more bang for your buck than comparable places in Arlington.
Apartment itself is great, but the management is horrible.
What they advertise to have are not included. So beware. I love the location, i always feel safe walking home from crystal city metro. Gym is free. However, maintenance is super slow and my roommate fixed it. Got a mailbox key after a month I moved in. Warning! They will take a full month of rent regardless of your move-in date. As long as you don't deal with Cassa Housing, you should be fine. (They take advantage of you when they can.) By the way, don't get tempted by fully furnished housing. Not true. Other than than it's alright!
Great building with a few annoying details
The Shay is a great new building in a perfect location. The units are decent size and all have very large windows that bring a lot of light into the apartments. There is very nice roof deck on each building, and the West building has a small (but usable) gym, as well as an outdoor pool and deck and an indoor community room. The annoying details include the fact that the door buzzer cannot be used to allow guests to come the entire way up to the apartment, as the key fob is needed for the elevator. Additionally, while the appliances are all new and from well-known brands, we have had significant problems with more than one of them since we moved in.
Quiet and Conveniently Located
I love the apartment. Very quiet place to live and conveniently located with the park nearby and access to running trails. Water pipes tend to burst constantly and I pay for parking even though they never tow non-residents in the garage. Management team is responsive.
Quiet spot in a good location. The close proximity to Long Bridge Park is wonderful. Free guest parking which is definitely a plus. The location definitely feels safe. Overall, I think it's a great place to live but I do think it's a little too expensive. The apartments are nice but still very small. The hallways walls could use some TLC too. Also, they have some problems fixing the garage door which is a bit frustrating.
More sense of privacy and value
I really enjoy living at Rosslyn Heights compared to where I was living before (the Meridian at Courthouse). There's a better sense of privacy - I can't hear my neighbors at all. I have a balcony of my own. The location is amazing, & it's well-priced.
Great for this location
Buchanan apartments is a great choice for someone who still wants to live in the city but not to pay a lot. The only minus is washer & dryer room is outside the apartment, but located on each floor. We do enjoy living here! A lot of great restaurants, coffee shops, amenities nearby. You still need to drive to do groceries tho.
So far so good
Just moved in and loving it!
Beautiful but pricey
Exceptional amenities and common spaces. Great gym and unbelievable view from the rooftop of d.c. skyline. Walking distance to U street bars and restaurants. Also close to shaw metro stop. Pricey but worth it. Can't say enough about how much we enjoy living here!
