Nice place, so so location
I've enjoyed living here, and the amenities are really nice. The buildings and surrounding area are clean. But the walk from the metro is a little far late at night and requires crossing a major intersection and some occassionally unpleasant bystanders
Has great amenities but the location is not developed at all, and can be unsafe at night. Management is not very responsive. Rent is high, but you cant beat the price for the space, especially in DC. The lobby is very nice and there are two pools.
Right at the Metro
Wonderful place to live right at the Twinbrook Metro.
Good, but not great.
The Terano has beautiful finishes and a great looking building, but it definitely has its issues. The main problem is the cheap construction. I can hear all 3 of my neighbors, but the worst is the neighbors above. Simply walking sounds like stomping and if they happen to drop something, it sounds like a car accident. From next door, I can hear my neighbors TV on one side and can hear the other neighbors talking. For the price, better insulation should have definitely been installed.
However, the management is great and the robot concierge is awesome. It's just a shame that they cheaped out on such a great looking building.
Great apartment building for young professionals.
This apartment is a great place for the young professional looking to live in a clean, and safe environment with all of the amenities you could possibly want or need. It is pet safe, comes with parking, a gym, a pool, as well as plenty of common areas for hanging out with friends and a valet service for trash.
Quiet area and nice amenities
The best part of living at The Gale (previously Trilogy NoMa) is the peaceful environment mixed with top notch amenities. The building is always clean and the communal areas (including outdoor pool, gym, and movie theatre make the expense reasonable.
I don't like management, but it's a great location at a decent price.There's alot of room.
This is a great spot to live for a young couple just trying to make its way in this crazy city. Amazing amenities and a friendly staff help us make the most of our down time. A very nice gym keeps us in shape and ensures we are all staying true to our New Years Resolutions!
So far everything's been good. Maintenance is pretty quick with complaints and problems. Very clean and peaceful, near to metro and shopping areas. Metro is just at best, a 5 min walk. Residents are friendly. Just not so happy with the quality of materials used in the apartments considering that its a new building. Flood lights broke in multiple times on our first few months of living here.
Close to metro, nice amenities
The Gale (formerly Trilogy NOMA) is a nice building with great amenities (outdoor pool/grilling area, two gyms, community areas, business center, concierge). We had a great apartment that was pet-friendly and had as small dog park. 24 hour security..
love love love
We've been here 1 month and absolutely love it. the apartments are completely new and everything is top of the line. If you're like me, the aesthetics of where you live really matter and this place has a dope, industrial vibe w/floor to ceiling windows. The roof has some of the best views of the city, including a pool, grills, tons of lay out chairs, a spin studio, ktichen, pool table...everything! Tons of restaurants and bars are set to open in 2016....get in while you can!
Not Bad, Not Great
The building is brand new which is great and with pets, having hard floors in the main living space is a plus. I also like that we have a full size HE washer and dryer. There is also no weight limit for dogs which I think is a plus given many of the other buildings in the area.
We moved into this building after living in the apartment building (The Alaire) across the street for a year. We wanted to move into the new building for the above stated reasons. In the Alaire we had a concierge however at The Terano there is no concierge. This is a huge inconvenience, especially for the money we pay. When things arise (which have) such as loud parties in the nearby club room late into the night, upstairs neighbors making tons of disturbing noise after midnight, people smoking pot and or cigarettes on the grounds such as the parking garage or their apartments (it's a smoke free property) it's our responsibility to have to call the police to file a report. There is nobody to ask when you have any questions or concerns such as you would ask a concierge. The only time you can have any help is during business hours when the leasing office is open and you are forced to wait until someone is free from working with new tenants to help you. If you email the leasing agents with questions or concerns as a prospect they answer right away. Once you are a tenant you will receive no response or help from them via email. After hours there is zero convenience and I feel that it is a huge disadvantage.
Also, the building uses a package concierge service where your deliveries are stored in a locker that you open via a touch screen using your code and only the locker with your items will open. Its great, we had it in our last building as well only The Terano charges $25 per person per year to use it. What's worse is that there is no other option for receiving your packages (back to no concierge).
Lastly, the maintenance is very slow to handle issues. When we moved in, there were items that needed to be addressed in our apartment and it took 3 weeks for them to come (in a mostly vacant new building at that point). The security door that comes from the garage(which is public) into our hall was unlocked and no fob was needed to open it. It took a month and two requests for this safety issue to be taken care of. The property has a dog park on site but the gates have been busted for months. The latches don't shut and all dogs have to do is push and they can get out next to roads and a busy metro parking lot. Who knows how long it will take to fix.
I enjoy our apartment and most days it's great living here, especially for the location. If management could get it together it would be even better and if they would add a concierge service to the building it would make living there 100 times more enjoyable.
Great apartments but a little pricey
Love the apartment - the kitchen is big and beautiful, the windows let in a ton of light and the walk in closet is great! Management has mostly been great, though we had some frustrations with the finance woman, not sure if she's still there though...
The building is beautiful, and I like the amenities. It's a lot of space for what we pay. The location isn't the best but I knew all that going into it...
My problem is the management. They will nickle and dime you for everything - even a fee to "prepare your bill" every month. You have to pay $25 for valet trash that won't come on Saturday and Sunday and won't take boxes. The pet rates are also high, even for DC.
The management is also rigid and inflexible - do you have a car there for only a few days? Guess what, you can't pay a prorate to put it in the garage; you have to pay for a full month. WHY?! There is TONS of space in the garage.
Speaking of the garage, bikes are stolen all the time. Why not put a lock on the bike cage, or put cameras there, or something?
This is a great location if you have some extra money to spend. For a complex, it's reasonably priced, but I found that I wasn't using all the amenities I was paying for, and many of the services like printing and the door entry are often out of order. Staff is friendly and units are modern, but only worth it if you take advantage of ALL the services.
