Beware of Scam
We were 2 summer interns who decided to live in Seattle instead of in the suburbs like had done the prior summer. We liked the Lightbox apartment and location. The problem is, they have a history of scamming you after you vacate the premises. There are many reviews out there just like ours that attest to our experience. They do this especially to out of state students. Once you leave and go back home they hit you with made up and unsubstantiated charges like smoke damage and having to paint the entire apartment and ceiling twice! They can't supply pictures or receipts for the repair work. The comical aspect, if there is one, is that during our 3 month stay, we did not cook and we do not smoke. They know that the amount they charge is not high enough to expend the money necessary to retain an attorney, fly out for court appearances, and fight them, so in the end, after you try to reason with them, you end up begrudgingly giving them the $1100 they require just to make the situation go away. We did so because of their threat to go to collections and ruin our credit. The irony, we couldn’t pay online or mail them a check. We had to give the thieves our credit card number over the phone. As college students, bad credit is a big concern of ours and we were told if we didn’t pay that day over the phone it was going to collections. This was a horrible situation and we were so taken advantage. I've learned a great lesson the hard way. Before moving into my next apartment I will read reviews first, check with the local police department, and force a final walk-through prior to leaving. Thank you for allowing me to share my experience.
Good location, quiet
It's been really good. The facilities are great, there's an underground parking garage that's convenient, and as a side bonus, you can pay rent through rentpayment.com (for all you gamers out there). The major downside is that it is a bit further from the office and not located where most 1st year analysts live. It's near Shirlington, Alexandria. It's a bit cheaper than living in Ballston and it's super close to DCA and Alexandria. It's also about 10 minutes from Ballston and the Pentagon and 15 minutes from DC without traffic. There is no metro stop conveniently close, so even though you can take the bus, a car is almost a necessity.
One final benefit is that it takes less time to commute by car than if you lived in DC. At worst my commute is 40 minutes, but normally it's between 19-30 minutes. And there are 3 main routes (George-Washington Parkway, I-66, and I-495) so if one way is really backed up, you've got other options
Perfect location, very expensive, but we added a third wall to make it cheaper
Great place for a 1st time renter
Recently renovated. Great new appliances. Looks great on the outside. Some but rare spiders or insects. No rodents. Spacious living room, dining, and kitchen. Maintenance is usually very responsive. Very pet friendly, but with a high deposit per pet. Great crowd of diverse occupants. Close to lots of food and shopping centers. Right outside of Arlington. About 15min outside of DC. Not close to a metro station, but there are close bus stops. Walls aren't TOO thin.
Nice apartment and facilities in the financial district.

10 Hanover Square
This was my first apartment out of college and it was a great place to start! There was a door man, in unit laundry machines, elevators, and great valet service (for dry cleaners, packages, etc.) A great affordable option in bustling Manhattan! Easy walk to the 2-3 and 4-5 lines as well!
Modern and safe, lots of young recients
Nice building with new amenities. The apartment itself is quite dark, however.
Great public transportation connections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, R, F, A, C, Z, J subway, M15 bus).
Good grocery store close by. Lots of new restaurants, bars and sotres opening up.
Apartments are spacious and balcony is a plus. Renovated apartments have nice hardwood floors and updated kitchens with stainless steel appliances. Service requests are addressed quickly and efficiently. Management company nickels and dimes tenants whenever possible - beware.
Luxury rental in downtown manhattan
10 Hanover Square is it's location. It's walking distance from grocery shopping, battery park, wall street, both the hudson and the east river, and the 2/3 and 4/5 subway lines! The management of the building is great-very friendly and always willing to help whether it's a maintenance issue or you just can't get your door unlocked, and the front desk is staffed 24 hours a day! Rent is a little overpriced for my student budget but you definitely get what you pay for!
FiDi is Up and Coming
10 Hanover Square offers exceptional quality at a relatively steep rent. They do boast the easiest/least stressful move-in process with it only being a $500 deposit and flexibility on move-in dates. I would definitely recommend 10 Hanover Square if you're looking to move.
Big Studio for price
Before checking 95 Wall, I saw terrifying small apartments in the area that were more expensive. Here I have a huge closet, washer and dryer, big bathroom and tons of light. To top it all off, there is easy access to the train stations and bus stops and fantastic bars and restaurants in the area. The building is just a 2 min walk from the Pier where you have the most beautiful views of Brooklynn. Couldn't be any happier.
