Great new property
I was one of the first tenants to move into the Ludlow - while it's definitely still a work in progress on the outside, the property itself is great! The rooms are well arranged with great built-in storage (there are Elfa storage systems in all the closets). The finishes are beautiful, the views are great, and I have had no issues with noise even with construction across the street. The gym which was recently finished is great, with a good assortment of equipment including dumbells that go up to 75 lbs. The outdoor space and entertainment area is great for grabbing drinks outside, is incredibly spacious, and is generally really impressive. There's a CVS right next door, Moms grocery across the street and plenty of other amenities nearby. It's also just a block away from Jefferson Station which makes trips across town or to NYC via Trenton incredibly easy!
Friendly stuff, directly across the street from PG Plaza Mall, two blocks away from the PG Plaza Metro Station. Very convenient for someone who does not have a car and wants to have a space with their own room and restroom. There is a shuttle that takes students to and from Howard Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. there's a full kitchen and there is a Safeway store, Target, and Giant grocery store nearby.
Expensive but Great Location
Very expensive for what you get but the location is very convenient
Vie Towers (once Towers at UTC) was the cheapest in DC
A new management company has bought this property since December 2017 and has done a lot of renovations to this place. When I first most here it was only because Howard had no graduate housing at the time. Vie has lots of cool ammenities but rent is still pretty high. They also need to fix the way electricity is billed because it’s split evenly among roommates. I hate that. My roommates love leaving lights in for no reason. The towers are convenient right next to PG Mall, Safeway, several restaurants, and a movie theatre. It was the best option for my grad student budget. There is also a shuttle that goes to Howard and university of Maryland that is very convenient.
The Vie Towers is a great place to live while you are attending school in the D.C. area. They have upgraded a lot of the rooms with new flooring and appliances. I don't advise staying here if you don't plan on stay in the apartment after May because you do sign a year lease before moving in which runs through July of the following year, but other than that it beats the dorms any day.
Not worth the price
You are close to the Metro.
Prepare for Gentrification
My experience at what was once known as "UTC" will soon resemble nothing of the experiences of the new "Vie Towers" residents. Aside from extreme renovations to the facilities and my 15th floor apartment (which is being transformed as an exclusive penthouse suite), new residents can expect a huge increase in rent.
Not sure how long until the provided shuttles to and from campus will cease to exist, though they turbulently served their purpose for my time here, and for that I am grateful. Having a gym directly downstairs was also a blessing. I wish the printer downstairs printed in color, since there are also no color printers on campus.
I also dislike the way that maintenance can come and go freely through the apartment. This is not only dangerous, but also violates personal privacy.
I absolutely love living here! The staff are amazing and the location is perfect! I’m across from a Whole Foods and 2 blocks from a Giant. I’m 4 blocks to Union Station and the buses stop 2 blocks away that take you to Howard. I don’t have a car so the convenience of this location was important to me and worth the price.
Although no utilities are included, there is also no amenities fee which is nice. I can use Xfinity hotspots for internet through my parent’s Comcast subscription. There’s a small gym and I love the rooftop pool and views. The building is constantly putting on little events for us that include free food and drinks and workout classes.
I don’t drive and don’t feel I need a car at all, but parking is expensive at $225 a month. I would definitely negotiate for free parking when signing a lease as they do offer it as a bonus frequently.
Price could be changed a bit. But location for Howard student is far & is tiredsome.
Lived in this apartment complex for 2 years
Vie Towers is a great place for upperclassmen students who desire to be off campus. Vie Towers is located right across from PG Plaza Mall, the metro station, movie theatre, and two grocery stores and plenty of restaurants. Not to mention this apartment caters to college students and offers free shuttle service that runs from 7:00 AM until 11:00 PM. The apartment is currently being updated with wood floors in the bedrooms, new appliances, and new furniture!
Currently Transitioning to Something Great
New management has taken over the apartment complex and current renovations are taking place. New floors and appliances have been installed in all rooms and the changes look really nice. Updated gym, pool area, rooftop, and study lounge are great added amenities that I can appreciate. Howard shuttle every half hour is super convenient and saves money for travel/parking costs— making it worth staying in my opinion
You get what you pay for
At the Towers, you get what you pay for. They are in the process of upgrading the appliances and furniture which is great because the old furniture was out of date and falling apart. There are a bunch of Howard University undergrad students living here as well as undergrad students from other schools. There are a few grad/professional students here as well. But basically, it's always noisy and things can get frustrating when you're a grad student and you're living with undergrad students. The location is great though which is why I have decided to stay in addition to the shuttle that takes you to and from Howard for free.
UTC is a good and convenient place to live. There are shopping centers such as Target, Giant, Safeway walking distance away. There is a mall also across the street. A new management took over ans started implementing renovations therefore the rent prices are being increased. Besides that, it is a good place to live.
Great service and quality facilities
I appreciate the property because I have my own room with my own bathroom. That was the main reason I love the place on top of the shuttle to campus. The property is really secure but I do wish there were key scanners instead of the key card. Its annoying when the card breaks and it would be foolproof.
Modern building, homey feel
The Collins has been the perfect mix between a modern, brand new apartment building that still feels more like a home than a cookie cutter high rise building. There are only six floors which helps. After a month or two, I actually started to recognize my neighbors which is great. The floor plans are pretty spacious and I LOVE the high ceilings. Because there are only about 120 units in the building, the rooftop and the gym are never too busy.
