Park Crest Review
Review - The August
Nice apartment but old building. It has been renovated but still has thin walls and you can definitely hear the people living around you. Not worth the expensive rent.
Live somewhere else
I have had several issues in the 4 months I've been here. My water is routinely turned off. My gas had been turned off for days. The air conditioning broke in August when it was 90 degrees and took 3 days to get ti fixed. There is construction going on in the building that is loud and makes being in the apartment impossible.
Moreover, the kitchen is tiny. There is no counter space in my kitchen to cook and I have a smaller than average sized stove and refrigerator.
The one good thing about this apartment complex is that it is very close to the law school so I have a short commute.
It is pretty good
Overall there are not a lot of issues, other than its a bit cramp and that it gets too cold in the fall.
This is an Amazing Apartment
Neighbors are great, not much noise at all. Everybody minds their business. There's a great new gym and the rooftop is exceptional at night with a new electrical grill installed. Laundry is more convenient now with a pick up and go locker. Parking also is very clutch.
Very good place, clean and quiet. Really good neighbors too. Great restaurants nearby and Kalorama Park is awesome. Definitely good for children too. Big apartment with large windows, couldn’t want a better place. Happy that we found our apartment soon
Great location, Great apartment
I have lived here for three years now. The apartment complex is conveniently located to metro, shops, restaurants, and a grocery store. The rooftop has wonderful views and a great pool. Nice amenities like grills outside and rooftop loungers. Maintenance is always very responsive and the concierge is always willing to help.
Clean - easy to work with - good location - small space for what you pay - lots of food traffic due to new WHARF which has made it safer - grocery and metro just steps away that make it easy for commuting and get groceries - close to Nats park and WHARF
Great place in up and coming neighborhood
The apartment is very reasonably priced for the luxury unit and amenities. It has great closet space and good sized bedrooms. I also love the open concept of our living room and kitchen. The rooftop is very nice with amazing views, but I wish the pool was larger.
Great building, awesome tenants! AWFUL LEASING STAFF, incompetent
The building tenants are great... we have a roof deck with a (tiny) pool. There is a dog park so that’s a major bonus except there is never any maintenance done to keep it sanitary at the very least
If you need help, have an emergency or a simple request... DONT expect any sort of reasonable help let alone ANY assistance whatsoever.
Love Living Here!
I have recently moved the The Melwood and have loved living here! The location seriously cannot be beat and I feel like I am getting a great value for money here. The neighborhood is full of bars, restaurants, stores, parks, etc. and has beautiful properties throughout the neighborhood. The building itself has historic charm and is well-maintained with updates where it matters. There is secure package storage, key fob entry, and lots of natural light- at least from my front facing unit. My studio is well laid out, with polished hardwoods and a well-sized galley kitchen. The bathroom is well-sized as well, and my walk-in-closet is huge.
Modern and Clean Apartment
I've lived in two different one bedroom apartments in this building. The building and apartments are very modern and clean. The lobby looks like a nice hotel when you walk in. The apartments are a bit expensive but what you'd expect for DC. The floor plans of the apartments differ between the units, but there seems to be enough variety to get what you need. Our current apartment is a 1BR, 1BA and is around 600-650 sq ft. The kitchen is open and has more counter space than most other apartments this size, so it was one of the biggest reasons we liked the apartment. The floor to ceiling windows are also a nice touch and have great views of the city if you're high enough.
The amenities are also fantastic. There's a fairly large gym, a rooftop pool, outdoor space, grills, business center, and a game room with a pool table. It's also right next to Safeway for groceries and the metro, and about a 15 minute walk to the National Mall, Nationals Park, and the Wharf.
We've lived in this apartment building (in 2 different units) for about 2.5 years. It's as expensive as it gets in DC, but you get your money's worth in many different ways. The entire building is modern, clean, and luxurious. The gym is large and never over-crowded. My biggest complaint there is that sometimes the cleaning wipes run out and take a week or so to be replaced. But I use the gym daily and save money I'd otherwise spend on a gym membership. The 2nd floor common area (pool table, indoor & outdoor lounge, grills) is great to be able to use if your apartment is too small for larger gatherings. Our 1 BR 1 BA unit is about 625 sq ft. - so fairly small, but does the trick for the two of us. It's smartly designed and has served us well, although to upgrade to a bigger space, we will probably opt for a less expensive location. The staff here is absolutely fantastic and I have 0 complaints about their professionalism, responsiveness, and kindness. The building location cannot be beaten either- steps away from the metro & Safeway/CVS for groceries. Plus an easy 10-15 minute walk from the brand new Wharf or Navy Yard for baseball games (in opposite directions). My partner also frequently plays basketball at courts that are only a 5-10 min walk away. The only ONLY other complaint I have is that the elevators can be unbearably slow and frustrating sometimes. 5 stars, very happy tenant
Great Location in a Rising Neighborhood
First, the location is awesome. Our building is attached to a grocery store and right next to a Metro station. We're also just a few blocks from the Navy Yard and the new Wharf. Southwest is becoming a destination neighborhood, and the Leo places you right in the middle of it.
As for the building itself, it's not the newest building in the neighborhood, but was just opened about four years ago, which means the building is still pretty new and nice, but is trying to compete on price against newer buildings nearby (which works well for you as a renter!). The apartments are still really nice, with some having pretty good views. Management does a good job keeping up with maintenance, too. The best part of the building, though (besides the location) is the gym, which is pretty well stocked and the biggest apartment gym I've seen. It doesn't have everything, but you'll be just fine with your workout. There's a good club room, outdoor patio, and rooftop pool for lounging, too.
The tenants here are decent, for the most part. It's primarily young professionals, with a lot of dogs (only a $35 monthly fee, so relatively cheap) and just a few kids mixed in. We don't usually have many problems with noise, but the apartments that open onto elevator lobbies can get noisy.
Community and Style by the Waterfront
The Lex is great for working professionals and couples. It's pet friendly (private dog park), Monday night neighbor potlucks, yoga, lounge w/ pool table, Conference room, BBQ area, rooftop pool & lounge, two blocks from the Wharf & next to Metro! Overall Great!
