Happy with offering & partial park view
The building is located right on Rittenhouse Square's park and my apt has a view of the park, which is exactly what I wanted. The building is very secure and the staff is responsive. The gym in the basement is nothing special, but as an ex-athlete it's been enough for me and is never crowded. If you want a building full of MBA students, this is not the place for you.
222 Rittenhouse Review
Everything from meeting with the property manager to signing the lease to moving in was easy. Any time I have had an issue, it's been fixed within a day. Apartment is on the pricey side, but when I signed the lease they gave me 2 months free on a 12 month lease which makes the average rent over 1 year of 1,700 with utilities included. Gym in the basement is functional but not amazing, but there is an office that has free printing (which is amazing)
Close to Fuqua
thin walls, can hear every step from the person living above you, the lights are dime. close to Fuqua and food court.
Place is quiet and management is good about maintenance requests and receiving packages. Also, the amenities are good. And the complex is fairly new.
Great staff, did mess up once with rent but they fixed it (almost). Clean complex, everything is fine except the rent - too high compared to Belmont/Heights.
Nice but pricy
Apartments are nice, but not really cozy. High ceilings and large open spaces make it expensive to cool/heat. Location is great as it's close to campus and plenty of food options. Pretty expensive, but technically you're getting a lot of amenities and a good location, so it might be worth it for some people.
Lofts at Lakeview
Lofts at Lakeview is a great apartment complex. It's very safe and one of the closest to Pratt. The staff is really responsive - you can send them emails, texts, or stop by the front office and they'll help in any way they can. All of the common areas are well maintained. All of the entrances/gates (including the parking garage) are locked so you need a fob or code to get in, which prevents any strangers from coming in. There haven't been any noise problems and the residents are very friendly. There are multiple social events each month, most with free food, for the residents. They gym also offers group fitness classes, which is nice. The apartment itself was in great condition- very clean, new amenities, etc. Maintenance has also been very responsive and quick to fix anything in the apartment and common areas. The only downside is that rent is quite pricey.
Friendly Staff, Great Furnishings, Very Close to E-Quad
The Lofts at Lakeview is an upper-middle level apartment complex with very nice kitchen appliances/bathroom furnishings. The maintenance staff is pretty prompt and very friendly, as is the staff in the office. It's an easy 10-15 minute walk to e-quad and it's right next to Chipotle, TGI Friday's, and several other eateries. Free parking, and a decent fitness center with cable machines, free-weights, and aerobics room. There is a pool but it's almost always too cold to enjoy. You are unlikely to hear neighbors on either side of your apartment, but with hardwood floors you are very likely to hear the unit above you. That being said, I definitely recommend the Lofts!
very good apartment that you can walk to Fuqua
- can walk to Fuqua
- very clean
- very quiet
- nice kitchen and private laundry
- have six restaurants near by(TGI Friday, Chipotle, ...)
- at lobby: love printer, Huge TV, Meeting room, and Chilling area( I like to hangout with friends watching sports, playing pool, bringing snack and beer.
- parking indoor
- no supermarket in walking distance
- grocery stores near by are in gas station and It is not safe for woman walking there alone
- rent is quite expensive compare to other apartment (you got walking distance to Fuqua) if you plan to drive to Fuqua, there are some more value apartments to consider
- Leasing officer will require some proves about your income and it is not the same for each customer and each officer making customer confuse
Nice and cozy place
Great facilities, especially big screen TV and coffee machine in the lobby.
As convenient as you can get
Pros: 20-minute leisurely walk to class, locked garage parking, great amenities (24-hour gym, free fitness classes, on-site movie theater, 2 outdoor pools, grills and fire pit, 24-hour complementary coffee/tea/cocoa, organized social events, guest suite can be reserved 2 nights per month, reservable areas for social/work events, package service), quiet, helpful front office
Cons: the student loan budget does not cover rent for a one-bedroom (need supplemental income), maintenance can be a bit slow and lazy, need a dehumidifier in bathroom 6 months out of the year, some pet owners fail to clean up after their pets (including in the hallways, so watch out)
I really love the Lofts at Lakeview. I was initially skeptical because it is more popular to live at S9/B9 but as someone who likes to "get away from it all", it has been great. The apartments are super quiet and it turns out there is a solid Fuqua presence so I've found people to study with. It is also walking distance from Fuqua.
Some things to know: The apartments themselves are really beautiful (probably one of the nicer ones you will see in Durham). The business center is not great--the computers are old and slow and it is nearly impossible to use the printer as a result. I don't see that changing any time soon. However, the facilities in general are really nice and management is very responsive to repair requests. If it matters to anyone, you can also request to have the color of your "accent" wall changed so there is some room for personalization. Also, since it is "loft" style, the one bedrooms don't have doors on the bedroom. It is an open floor plan. 2+ bedrooms have doors on the bedrooms.
Close to campus, very spacious apartment, and nice amenities
Lofts at Lakeview is a terrific option if you would like to live within walking distance (15 minute walk) from Fuqua. The apartments are incredibly spacious, with double vanity bathrooms, huge walk-in closets, new appliances, and friendly staff.
Perfect apartment, Perfect location.
Lofts apartments have the little amenities that others don't: a separate glass shower, large walk-in closets, water dispenser on the fridge, etc. It just feels nicer. The common areas are great and never too busy. You literally can't beat the location as it's only 1mi from Fuqua. I considered all local apartments and Lofts is easily the best of all worlds.
