The Gale Eckington
The actual apartment is very nice. The actual building is okay, not super super clean looking (first floor hallways smell like cigarettes) . Rent is super cheap though and the building is on the MBT trail that goes directly up to CUA (10min bike ride or 25min walk). Amenities are great - two gyms, two pools, multiple outdoor spaces, grills etc. Plus there is a huge park right outside and new condos/restaurants under construction next door. Everything you need is super walkable. Location is better than living on/near campus - no undergrads in the building.
Great place to live
The building is well-maintained with daily cleaning services and a responsive maintenance team. Some cons are that the management office is terrible at communication and the fire alarm goes off pretty often due to the alarm system being connected to a Walmart’s alarm system.
Nice Location and Moderate Housing
The apartment is decent, maintenance works quickly to fix your issues. The location is great, right next to the metro and Pentagon City Mall.
Great location, amazing staff.
Living here feels like living at a hotel. The staff are impeccable.
You get what you pay for!
The apartment is on the more expensive side especially for the Arlington area, but the units are very modern and have floor-to-ceiling windows for plenty of sunshine. The building has a gym, BBQ/outdoor lounges, a pool, business center, game room, and a residential kitchen. They do have parking for an additional cost but honestly, the GUTS shuttle stop and the metro station is right behind the building so haven't had the need to even have a car.
A little bit expensive, but you get a lot of bang for your buck. Nice, reliable place to live as a student.
For the most part its been great. Its a good mix of families, older couples, and college students so the apartment complex isn't too loud. There is a lot of construction going on in the area as the new Amazon headquarters is being built across the street. There is a pool, several lounge areas, and a nice gym. Management and the front desk have been easy to get a hold of and are typically very accommodating. The apartment complex is also very convenient as it is located right down the street from the metro and is above a whole foods. The apartments are one of the more affordable nicer options in the area as well.
Definitely worth it
This apartment is a really great price for a lot of space. Love the location cuz its easy to get places even though its on the outskirts of the city. Good location thats not far from howard if u have a car
Expensive but worth every penny
My title pretty much sums it up.
Central Place is the best
Central Place is a great place to live. Nicest building and apartments I've seen (I visited 6-7 different buildings before moving). Beautiful amenities. Really convenient location for school—only 1 block from GUTS bus. Highly recommend.
Great new construction. High-end amenities. Great Location.
Great Place to Live; Not the Most Social
This really is the perfect place to live. The only problem, and I mean only problem, is that you are an Uber or Metro away from all of your friends, bars, and restaurants in DuPont and Logan. Luckily, the Metro and the GUTS bus stops are literally right outside. Fast casual healthy food right next door is a major plus for me.
Great location. Whole foods in same building with private entrance. Close to metro, mall, and Harris Teeter
This place checked all the boxes I looked for in an apartment. I came up here to apartment hunt for a week and was able to see the location and amenities first hand.
The location is ideal in that is it just across one street from the nearest metro stop. The 10 minute walk takes you around a store front, which has all sorts of shopping and dining options. The location is very pet friendly.
The amenities include two pools, and two small gyms with weights and cardio equipment. The rooftop and poolside BBQ grills are phenomenal gas-operated setups that are cleaned regularly. The building is clean and the laundry room is kept as clean as possible. Some apartments come with laundry sets but cost way more.
I only picked this unit because my unit was listed much lower than the other units in this property and much cheaper than other locations.
This apartment complex is only two years old and I absolutely love it here. It's about a 35 minute commute to campus (door to door). It's located a 5min walk from the metro and is right near a Starbucks, mall, restaurants, Costco, TJMaxx, the works. It also has a Whole Foods and coffee shop IN THE BUILDING. It has a rooftop pool, with a great view of the city, and a huge gym. Additionally, it has a large work bar where you can use desktop computers and print for free.
