Going down hill
This place is SO not worth the money. Every morning I wake up and am disgusted to live here. Most recently, there seems to be a drug problem that our management just brushes under the rug. Furthermore, they charge the SAME amount of money to rent the non-renovated units which are cheap and trashy looking. Luckily, I design on the side and did what I could to make this a home but I can't stress enough that you should be taking 1800 PLUS a month elsewhere. Sneakily, they never showed us a non-renovated unit upon looking here, so we didn't know what to expect and the disappoint we felt on moving day was sad for newlyweds. Our apartment constantly smells of marijuana and again nothing they can do. More recently, we had homeless in the back of our apartment. Biggest regret of my life is living here.
Great location! But pricey
Brookside is in a great location! Just across the street from the law school, it's located a five-minute walk from class, a 15-minute bike/bus ride to Pearl Street, and a five-minute walk to the bus stop for the direct bus to Denver or the airport. It's also located across the street from a Whole Foods, a liquor store, a yoga studio, and several restaurants. The apartments are newer and well-maintained, there's a pool, and the complex allows pets. Unfortunately, the rent is high, and they nickel-and-dime you for EVERYTHING. Water, electricity, gas, sewer, parking, pet rent - you name it, they have a fee. Additionally, because the complex is so close to campus, you run the risk of having an apartment full of undergrads partying on the floor above you. This risk is elevated if you're in a one-bedroom unit, which are inexplicably placed on the first floor below the three-bedroom shared units. Also, the walls are thin, so if you have loud neighbors or people who flush the toilet/do laundry a lot, you'll hear everything. All the time. All in all, the apartments are worth it for the location, and would likely be best if you share a top floor apartment with others to reduce the noise level and the cost.
Right off the highway
Close enough to school and right off the highway to head down town.
I think the price is pretty fair for living in Portland. The apartment is a little outdated but there have been no major problems. Some of the problems are that the management isn't super helpful and often you have to call multiple times or actually walk to the front desk to get answers. Also there is an ant problem is our apartment. There are people who come by to "exterminate" every Monday to apartments who need it, which is kind of suspicious that they always have them there. But it has mostly been taken care of. It's fairly close to campus with a less than 15 minute drive. The walls are super thin so get a quiet roommate!
The Post Downtown
Very convenient location although the construction next to it is a bit annoying. Amenities are fantastic and the views from some of the apartments are simply fantastic. The rent is a high, but parking is too much! There's a concierge in the lobby, pretty sweet!
Perfect if You Work Near
Amenities: modern gym, pool, TV room and rooftop terrace with barbecue. The management is a little bit confused at times but they are getting better over time. Perfect if you work in the area (close to Amazon campus), also good for commute to downtown.
Beautiful and relaxing view, could walk to everywhere
It's a pretty nice building and close to downtown. There are nice parks around that are ideal for exercising or just taking a good walk. Landlords do their job and really helpful. The only thing is that some residents(could be in-house out out-house) do not take good care of their pets' "business" so it kinda ruins the clean area around. Besides that, everything is wonderful :)
Awesome place to call home.
It is near the center of the city with a beautiful view from Elliott Bay. A safe neighborhood in a convenient location. The building is new with modern equipment and a fun community room. The management is great to with their service. I even got first month rent free.
So, the POST is kind of amazing. Not gonna lie, I know that I live in an expensive place, but I like it because I have such a great location to everything. This place is amazing in the summer and walkable to whatever I need. I also like the management team because they're pretty organized and helpful. I'm going to be staying for a while.
Make the best of your situation
This area is changing so much. Unfortunately the building is very behind in doing the same. very poor lighting in the hallways. I often yell at people to be quiet. HOWEVER, I will say that like any place, it is how much time you put into meeting people. And this location is honestly pretty great because of the access to groceries and the Starbucks is nice. I just hope people learn to respect the space more. I love my actual condo, just don't know how much longer I'll be here.
Spacious and amazing view
Spacious apartment layout for Seattle. Large deck that faces towards 23rd and has an amazing view of Lake Washington, the cascades and Bellevue. One bedroom plus den. Updated appliances with large bar. Lots of light in this apartment. Large walk in closet as well. Great location on Capitol Hill.
Cascade Terrace is very large apartment complex. Overall no main issues. Fairly old and dark apartments. We had a lot of issues with parking. There are barely any visitor spots and parking in Queen Anne is a huge hassle. My boyfriend also received several tickets parking his car in my paid for parking spot. The management said they would take care of it several times but they didn't. Parking is managed by a separate vendor. Ended up getting sent to collections. Will not consider living there again.
It has all and all been great living here. Had some issues with a resident below me who was trying to get me evicted, but management finally realized I was doing nothing wrong and took care of the issue. That being said, since that, I have not had any issues.
Great Building, Friendly Staff, Overpriced
The building is great, as is everyone who works here. I should have negotiated more on my rent, after moving in I realized that people with better views were paying significantly less because they drove a hard bargain. Partially my fault.
Reasonable Price for Nice Apartment
If you can get past the traffic from AAC and crime in the area, Moda is a great place to live. Management has improved significantly recently; however, are still not the best I've had. Nice gym and amenities, but very confusing lay out for guests. Overall it is a good place for the price.
