Recent Berkshire Communities reviews
You can tell the team at B9 cares not only about their residents but the property. They are constantly out on the property walking and checking to make sure everything is good to go. They can be delayed on responding, but always get you a response with 24-48 hours. They have done a lot of updates to their amenities including the fitness center. They are truly in the middle of everything and a short walk to campus. Maintenance is fantastic and super responsive. They have 2-3 events per month where you can meet your neighbors and socialize as well!
Artisan on 18th
Great location; 10-minute walk to campus and right next to midtown.
Artisan on 18th
I love this complex. Its quaint side, but is also modern, has great amenities, is affordable and is also super close to campus. Not many people know of it!
The apartment is very close to Owen and Midtown, which makes the location very convenient. While very close to everything, it's in a spot where you don't have to worry about noise or crowds.
I love it here. There aren't a lot of students, but it is a nice get away from campus and the school environment. The units are nice, cleanliness is a priority, and the leasing office is very nice.
Problems with management
The apartment is clean and safe. That being said, i have had consistent problems with utilities (broken heating system and water meter) that resulted in exorbitant monthly utility fees. Although i continually requested maintenance on those appliances and have requested credits for the costs incurred due to management's negligence, Berkshire has failed to provide adequate compensation.
This building is great. It's in an amazing location in the Central West End, and many of the units have balconies. The windows are large, and the floor plans are spacious. Management has been great, and I love the amenities. The gym isn't the biggest, but it is super convenient and has all of the basic equipment. The pool in the summer is a huge plus as well. While parking costs extra, the garage is heated in the winter and you get a reserved spot!
A More Budget- Friendly Option in CWE!
Super quiet building, great location (for restaurants/bars, Forest Park access, and 15 minutes from school)! Not as updated as other places BUT maintenance is always responsive and we’ve had no problems with safety (of neighborhood) or quality (of building/unit) concerns. A really great bargain in terms of rent paid to square footage, and staff are friendly. My partner and I split the rent, which includes garage parking and water + gas. Additional utilities average around $100/mo. total. Square footage of unit is 1050. Pet friendly! One drawback is the community is older in general, so maybe a little less social for people of a typical student age. There is a terrace pool though!
The artisan is good— close to school and has all the amenities I was looking for (in unit washer/dryer, non window unit AC, dedicated mail area) though it is increasingly trying to charge true luxury prices, and it’s not worth those prices
Decent apartment - the Abbott layout
Pros: finished ceiling; nice layout; in-unit washer/dryer; gated parking in building; 12 minute walk to law school; big closet; balcony; good amount of counter space
Cons: not on a major street so generally not a huge issue, but the soundproofing isn’t great both to the outside and within the apartment building; carpet in bedroom unless you pay extra; only a shower, no tub
Other things to consider: compared to some other buildings in the area, this one is a little bit on the older side, so there’s no pool, the gym is a little small, the “business center” isn’t super nice. I didn’t care so much about the shared spaces, but if that matters to you, they’re just okay. Another thing is that there are trash chutes on every floor rather than a trash valet service. I like that, but some people prefer the valet service. I haven’t had any major issues with my apartment, but management’s responsiveness is sort of 50/50. If it’s a small thing, they’ll fix it right away. If it’s a bigger thing it can take a really long time. I think basically if management has to sign off on something, the maintenance request can take weeks. Maintenance has changed over several times since I’ve been there, which may also affect things.
Great with Room for Improvement
I love the apartment complex and the management. They are super responsive, know everyone's names, and even give you a little birthday cupcake. I like that the rent is slightly lower than other apartments nearby, but there are very few amenities, the gym is good but small, and I do think the rent is a little high compared to the super new apartments nearby.
Close to campus, nice apartments
Easy 15 minute walk to campus, almost never hear neighbors, basically every apartment has a balcony (which was important to me). The apartment is also close to the Midtown bars/restaurants, but not so close that you get the noise from them. I have had some bug problems here, but it seems pretty contained to my place, and management has been great about that and other minor issues I've had here.
Amazing layout, great maintenance, got a month off on signing a year’s lease. Apartment is fancy (layout, Nest etc.) but old flooring, limited storage, minimal sunlight and dim lighting.
- Overall it's a nice modern apartment.
-Wall is a bit thin so you can hear whoever is above you when they are walking.
- Cheap material throughout so do expect some broken things here and there.
- mgmt team is pretty quick on responding maintenance request which is a plus.
Overall very good, room for improvement
The overall complex is great with many good amenities. The management team is very responsive, though deals with high turnover and therefore inconsistent communications. We love our apartment, its location, and the quality of life that we have here. My partner and I enjoy our stay here, but there is certainly opportunity for growth.
Room for improvement: Better package delivery system, Ensure better security for gates (there have been some thefts lately), Install functional cameras for internal community, Install cameras for parking garage, AWFUL Central Office staff.
Overall, is it worth the cost? Not really. They have enough demand from graduate students that the company inflates prices, but does not keep up with amenities and staff are overworked.
