Suited my needs as a student but I'm getting out ASAP once I'm working

8 management rating Reviewed by on

Pros:
There is easy access to several subway lines, including the A/C/F/B/Q and many more. It is also very close to the NYU engineering campus, which is helpful if you need to use the library to print or use the student health services (although the Brooklyn location has more limited health care services). The staff at the front desk are so nice and helpful. Problems (e.g. lightbulb burnt out) are generally solved within a day or two.

Cons:
The leasing office is horrible and they will raise your rent each year. Some (if not all) of the apartments are rent-stabilized so make sure you read the NYC laws to know your rights. While the location is great for subway access, it's pretty awful in terms of restaurants/cafes/bars/fun things to do. There is Dekalb Market Hall, but that gets old pretty quickly.

I've lived at Avalon Tysons Corner for four years. It has good access to several highways: 267, 495, 7, and 123. It's quiet and easy to get a ground floor apartment. There are a lot of families here and as apartments go it's a good place for children. The nearby schools are excellent. The commute to Georgetown is not good. Very convenient to Dulles Airport. Maintenance is very responsive. Crime is more or less nonexistent.

Great Neigborhood - Nice Housing - Little Setbacks, though.

The apt. building is in a great neighborhood, right next to Howard Law and UDC. Van Ness Metro Stop is right around the corner just like many shops and grocery stores. Building has many amenities (pool in summer, gym, amazon hub, free printing ...) and every apt. has a balcony, that may even give you a great view on the are and the mall. Common areas are very modern and in good shape and there is a person at the front desk 24/7. Repair service is included and they do a quick and good job. However, the apt. itself is a bit out of date and could use some modernisation. Laundry machines do not work all the time (which is really annoying) and the garbage disposal is a mess (way too small and smelly). The 2BR apt. is only affordable for students because we have someone living in the common room.

Spacious Apartment Close to GW Campus

8 management rating Reviewed by on

The studio apartments are quite large for a reasonable price. It also had a large amount of closet space for a studio apartment. The people and doormen are very kind. It is a 5 minute walk from GW campus. The rooftop is nice, but small. The gym is probably slightly below average for an apartment gym. It has dumbbells up to 50lbs (although one of the 50lb weights isn't there), one adjustable bench, and a few treadmills.

Far Away But Worth It

9 management rating Reviewed by on

Love my apartment. The commute can be a bit of a hassle sometimes, particularly when I'm staying at school later than the metro runs. However, because the commute is significant enough, I wind up going to school in the morning and staying until I finish my work. I really like that setup because it forces me to keep work and home separate, which means that at home I can actually relax.

I debated between the Statesman and Columbia Plaza because both seemed to be very close to the law school. I am extremely glad that I went with the Statesman because the relatively small difference in distance actually makes a big difference. I am a big homebody and focus much better on schoolwork when I am at home so it helps that I can walk 5 minutes back home in between classes (I have a 1.5 hour break in between some of my classes and usually come back home to work or eat lunch). I also saved a lot more money by being able to run back home and cook something simple.

Avalon Calabasas wins at location. It's pretty close to Malibu and Calabasas campuses. It's also quiet and safe because of suburb. Spacious living room is great. Pools and gyms are not satisfying.

My husband and I haven't had any issues with our apartment! We have great amenities for the price we pay, and everything is in good condition.
