What could be better
- Management's response time can be a little slow
Recent Borger Management, Inc. reviews
Given the volume of overpriced luxury apartment buildings in DC, Dorchester West is a surprisingly nice find. It is a brand new building with a beautiful courtyard and grills, and the units are spacious and well-lit, with lots of storage space and nice, modern, open kitchens. The gym (shared with Dorchester House, next door) is not great, but better than nothing. The management is not always the most responsive and helpful, but the maintenance staff is great.
Management quality needs work
I love Dorchester West as a building but the management company tends to be less than helpful and was a pain to deal with in the move-in. However, the building is wonderful and more than makes up for it. I would recommend this building but just be braced to deal with management who is tough to work with.
Location can't be beat
Great location, right in the heart of dupont circle, close to public transportation, bars, restaurants, coffee shops and walking distance to Georgetown and other parts of DC. Front door staff are extremely helpful and welcoming, and units have been renovated from the drab 1980s look. Slightly expensive, but that's DC!
If you can afford it I highly recommend it
Very nice rooftop, great location!!, Management is on top of fixes and maintenance, most units are newly renovated or scheduled to be soon (but flooring is old), don't have parking for every unit, best units face the back or on the corner because less street noise, big windows, clean laundry room, small gym but does the job especially in the winter.
It's in Dupont
Having a doorman is nice and the location is hard to beat. The gym is small but well-kept and is usually pretty empty. The rooftop is probably one of the best in the city, that I've seen anyways. Rent isn't cheap, but it really isn't anywhere. Management has been fine so far.
Great building, great location
I love my apartment. It's a great location and the management is very responsive. My only issues are with the amenities: rather not have coin laundry and would prefer better gym equipment but overall very happy where I am.
Historic Building by Meridian Hill Park in the midst of DC's Hottest Neighborhoods
I've now been living at the Envoy for nearly four years. I pay an appropriate rent for my spacious, but older studio and reap the benefits of the building's friendly, reliable staff and great location. The building is also right on the S bus line, a nice perk!
Overall good deal in the city
Old building but they're renovating apartments. So mine was one of the renovated.
All utilities included. Pool on roof. Big sized gym. Close to walk to many places. Concierge service. Safe.
Some concierges are better than others obviously :)
Good location, fine apartment
Love living in Logan Circle! Close to 14th street corridor, close to McPherson square, can walk to DuPont and Chinatown. The apartment is spacious for a studio, love the bay window for sunlight. I'm happy to have hardwood floors and an updated kitchen with dishwasher. So it's pretty good for DC standards. Nothing fancy, nothing luxurious. Management is pretty slow for everything- processing applications, maintenance, etc. Concierges - some are better than others. Pretty pricey for what it is but happy to be where I am.
So far, so good!
I have been living at The Cambridge for just over 2 months and so far, it's been a very good experience! My studio is clean, quiet and the location is perfect for everything I need to get to on a daily basis. The only thing I'd wish for is more closet space!
It is in a great location, there are some pest issues with cockroaches, relatively quiet neighbors which is great with the thin walls, fairly safe but doors are sometimes propped open with nobody around, heat is at a good level but sometimes a bit chilly, window AC in summer is great.
Super Pet Friendly
If you have a dog, like I do, then you will really appreciate this place. It has a special pet entrance that makes it super easy to leave and enter through when you're with your pet. It also has great management, the staff is very, very attentive and really cares about you and your well being. The studio itself is pretty spacious for the type of layout that I have , too, which makes it a really cool place. The kitchen is set nicely and I don't feel like I live in a studio. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking!
Dorchester Apartments - A great deal
I really enjoy Dorchester Apartments in Arlington. My roommates and I were looking for a clean value in a nice area, and we found it with Dorchester. I am especially happy with the location and the included utilities. Further, I am happy that there is a gym on the premises and that the apartment was well cleaned at the beginning of our lease.
Review of Tivoli Gardens
I'm a relatively new resident of Tivoli Gardens (managed by Borger Management) in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of DC. In looking for a studio apartment, two main priorities led me to choose Tivoli Gardens: price and location. While the apartment has its cons, the price and location are two pros in my book. First, price. Tivoli Gardens runs specials from time to time so I locked my first year lease in at a few hundred dollars below the average studio price. For the amount of money, the space in the studio is actually very generous compared to others around the city. Their studios have a great layout that allows you to separate your "rooms" easily. The kitchen, for instance, is significantly bigger than those of most other studios around DC, so if you like to cook then this is a great apartment for you! The walk-in closet is also VERY spacious and separates the bathroom entrance from the main living space, allowing more privacy than other studios. Second, location. Tivoli Gardens is in Columbia Heights, bordering on Mount Pleasant and Petworth. It's about an 8 minute walk to the Green/Yellow Metro line, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, several chain restaurants, and the Giant. It's a two minute walk to the bus stop where all 4 of the 16th street bus lines pick up. Very convenient in getting downtown. Overall, Tivoli Gardens is in a great spot because it's close enough to the hustle and bustle of the city while still maintaining privacy and solitude of a residential area. Some other pros of the building: - You have the option of installing Comcast or RCN for internet/TV. - Generally quiet - Leasing office and maintenance is on site However, the building is not perfect. Some of its major flaws include: - Rude and unresponsive leasing office staff. Luckily you only have to deal with them when you move in and when you move out! - Poor security. You may as well not even use your key fob to swipe in. Men hang out in the lobby and outside the front doors drinking and smoking. There are security guards at night but they spend more time playing on their phones than watching the door. - Ugly interior. While the apartments themselves are quite nice, the hallways/lobbies of Tivoli Gardens are shabby. The paint is chipping and the carpets are smelly and have stains all over them. The management keeps claiming they're in the process of replacing it but so far nothing has been done. - No parking. Street parking is zoned and very difficult to find.
The best part of the apartment is its location. It's two blocks away from the metro, right in front of the bus stop, 2 blocks from the grocery store and a bunch of big box stores, restaurants, and bars. Anything you need is right there.
The apartment isn't very social, and the management isn't the greatest, but it's tolerable.
