Attentive management, brand new building
I moved in here about a month ago. It's a brand new apartment building and management is very responsive and attentive. The actual apartment is nice: washer/dryer, modern appliances, granite counters, easy to clean flooring in the kitchen/bath/living and carpet in the bedrooms. Lots of natural light & our apartment overlooks the pool with cabanas. The first floor has a nice gym, a conference room that my roommates and I study in, two coffee machines, a nice lobby, etc. Mail service is cool; you get a username/password that you enter into a machine and it opens a box for your packages. Parking is never an issue since the building is new and thus, not fully occupied. My only complaints would be that the neighborhood doesn't have much to do walking distance away (but really where else does in Miami?) and the rent could be a little cheaper (about the same as Brickell which is a nicer area in my opinion). But, overall we're very happy with the apartment.
Convenient and safe.
The location of the building is great as in the heart of belltown. Multiple public transportation options in nearby. Close to Seattle center. Security Team is very responsible that limit the appearance of strangers/trespassers in the building. Though the parking garage monthly renting is bit inconvenient for tenant. The price for designated parking slot is $100 higher compared to other apartments in the neighborhood.
I've lived here so long for many reasons-the first being the people. Very friendly and nice. You will easily recognize your neighbors and don't have to worry about loud noise, your mail being stolen, or your safety. I like this place mostly because the size works for me. The units are in great shape.
Will be Under Construction
Great location--close to downtown, the navy yard, and the monuments. Love the big windows and open kitchen in the deluxe one bedrooms and two bedrooms. The residents are friendly and helpful, but management is not very helpful. The view will be under going construction in the upcoming months. The neighborhood in SW is really changing, lots of construction and high rises.
I was looking for an apartment that had enough space for my very energetic golden and that was located near SLU, Skye was the perfect fit. The apartments were recently remodeled and they have a TON of space, oh, and did I mention that they have a huge garden on the 3rd floor with grills, sun chairs, dog area and fire pit? You'll love living here.
Great location but pricey!
I have been living at Zilkr for about 8 months now and I absolutely love it! The common areas are really well maintained and the staff & residents are super friendly. Can't beat the location either! I love having the pool & gym amenities and use them frequently. The building is dog friendly too, which is nice for my Baxter. The only thing that could make Zilkr on the Park better is a fenced in doggie area. I highly recommend this apartment!
I really like this place. I like the pool ( great people watching for ACL and Blues on the green) and the gym is a good size. The apartment is nice but not as big as I would have liked for two people. We don't have much extra storage beyond our closet and end up putting some random things in the kitchen cabinets. Overall I would live here again because of the location but I am not sure the value of the actual complex is worth the price.
We moved into the View and a few weeks later were informed that our "view" was disappearing as they are adding a whole new building outside out window. There is NO storage space in the apartment. The management is a nightmare with no concerns for the tenant's safety in their home. Neighbors are unfriendly and act as if they own the entire property (letting aggressive dogs off the leash in the courtyard).
When I moved here in the spring of 2014 this was a very quiet area of DC within walking distance of the Mall. Now there is lots of construction (The Wharf), but even closer to the apartment complex itself as well. Crime has gone up too in the area, which I am very unhappy about.
Skye @ Belltown
My wife, myself and our two puppies moved in to Skye this past October. The move in process was smooth and easy and management made sure we had a private elevator to move our stuff in. The apartments are nicely updated, clean and mostly get great natural light. We have a south-west facing view and it's fantastic. The courtyard is great although some residents don't pick up after their pets which can be frustrating. The fitness center doesn't have much going on which is a bit of a bummer. However, when I go around 7:30-8:00 AM there's not many people in there. Overall, the apartments are great and for living in Belltown, you definitely get good value.
This place is a great find. Parking in the garage is extra but very convenient. Street parking is very limited. The Starbucks is right downstairs and convenient in the morning and there is plenty to do nearby. Complimentary shuttle service to the metro is also available.
Location is fantastic and is nice and quiet. However, the amenities are lacking, the gym is small and the washing machines/dryer always malfunction. Management is average, very friendly but could stand to update some of their systems. It worked for me in the short-term, but not for long-term.
A Year at Zilkr
So overall, my experience here has been pretty positive. The location is amazing, I really like my apartment, and for the most part the staff is friendly and helpful.
So again, the location is great. You're right next to Chuy's, and super close to all the other Barton Springs restaurants as well. I also love that I can access the trail just by stepping outside.
The building is new, and it's lovely. The interior of our apartment is really nice, and the community areas are great as well. I haven't been a super frequent user of the gym, but it's pretty much your standard apartment complex gym.
My only real issue here has been with theft/property destruction. We left a Halloween pumpkin outside our door for a day, and it got smashed down the hall. I'm pretty sure someone's dog peed all over our door mat. Packages keep getting stolen. And yesterday, my boyfriend's motorcycle got stolen out of the garage. As usual, the garage gates were broken that day, so he might as well have been parked on the street.
This is a very pet friendly community. There are tons of dogs here! There's a little doggie yard outside the parking garage, and of course the proximity to the trail makes it a great place for pets as well.
Great location, great management, overpriced
Just like everything in Austin, Zilkr on the Park is overpriced. The management staff is great, helpful and pretty awesome. The apartment building is clean and well-kept, and the amenities are nice; the gym is brand-spankin' new, the infinity pool looks over Barton Springs Road (though I wouldn't mind a larger pool that allowed for more guests), the community lounge area is fabulous and the outdoor fire pit and grill are mighty nice, too. But, still -- $2150? And that's going up this next year. We don't even have a balcony - sheesh. Not to mention small things: the washer and dryer are small stackables and freeze up, faux hardwood floors instead of the real deal and the granite countertops are certainly not real granite. My real gripe is that when the display lights (positioned nicely along the tops of the high kitchen ceiling) burn out, the management will no longer replace them. I'm supposed to have a ladder and these specific bulbs? (It's because they burn out so quickly and they realized that early on when people were constantly turning in maintenance requests to have them replaced).
The location is unbeatable; that's for sure. Zilker Park is literally your backyard and we are on the hike + bike trail. Right by ACL, Blues on the Green, Shady Grove Unplugged at the Grove, etc. And walking distance from downtown. The management is always offering plenty to do and partnering with local organizations to provide residents with great experiences, and it's definitely a very dog-friendly complex.
While my complaints sound nit-picky (they may be), for the price we're paying, I feel like I'm allowed to be.
