Great New Building
The building was built within the last year and has a great view of the city/Pentagon. It's a pet friendly building with all the amenities you need. Basically, the view and amenities is what caught my attention. It's also conveniently located near the mall.
Not too much noise but elevator sometimes does not work. It's wonderful to be near metro and shopping mall as well as Harris Teeter.
Nice location, questionable management decisions
RiverHouse is seeking approval for complex redesign, including building two new buildings on the complex. By 2018 they promise to knock down our pool and gym, so I definitely see rentership decreasing by then. I know I personally will not be staying here that year and beyond. But if construction noise and well as lack of pool and gym is not a problem, then RiverHouse might be the place for you.
Loving it so far
I love my apartment at the Terano. I like that I'm the first resident to live in the unit, and all the appliances are new. This is the first time I"ve had my own washer/dryer, which is super! The reason I picked the building was 1) laminate flooring which makes it easier to clean than carpet 2) access to metro, which is super easy and 3) walkable to other things. With the new safeway open, it is livable without a car, but still far enough in the burbs that having a car is definately a perk
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
Riverhouse at Pentagon City
Very spacious living room. Extremely pet friendly. Maintenance staff are timely and friendly. Maintenance staff do a very good job of keeping the building clean and outside area well-kept. Parking is reasonable. Rooms are a good size. Rent is reasonable for the area and location.
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.
Not going to get any more bang for your buck than at the RiverHouse
Tons of space. Great views. Only downside is it isn't within walking distance of school. But, door to door, commute takes about 30-35 minutes on average.
Newly renovated, safe, & close to metro
220 Twentieth is a great building. About a 15 minute metro/drive to the law school. Floor to ceiling windows in all of the apartments, stainless steel appliances, and lots of closet space. Management responds to any request within 24 hours, but usually they respond within a few hours.
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.
Very Well Kept
The apartment building is well kept and always clean. Maintenance is quick to fix anything in your apartment that needs assistance. The gym is nice and has lots of different equipment. Overall I have been very pleased with my living arrangement. I would definitely renew my lease here.
I don't like management, but it's a great location at a decent price.There's alot of room.
Overall I have loved the Alaire. Maintenance is very responsive and there are nice amenities like a dog park on site, a nice gym with a trainer and classes, and easy package retrieval. I've lived there for several years and overall would highly recommend living there!
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.
