Recent Bozzuto Management reviews
Higher rent for okay apt.
New management is better than previous management. Newly renovated apartments are fairly nice, but 15-85% increase in rent from before (improvements are definitely not 85% rent-increase worth). Extra charges for hot water, sewer, electricity, and pets. Currently, new rent reflects amenities that are unfinished.
Quite, spacious and well lit. Love the place!
Very close to Philadelphia center city/downtown area, Edge water is a great property to stay as a couple or as a family.
The friendly management makes it a point to sort out any issues you might have pretty quickly. A small garden downstairs is perfect for kids to play during days we cannot go too far. Our apt has a beautiful river view which is great to keep kids busy.
All apts are spacious and sunny. All in all a lovely place.
Great Location for School
I live here and go to school and everything has worked out well since starting school. Things are quiet and I never have to worry about not being able to study at home, even with my noisy pets and spouse. They always have something to do since we are close to everything we could ask for. I love this aspect of living here. In addition, if we want to go somewhere new, we are close to public transportation.
Great location, very pricey for space
The apartment location couldn't be better. They're renovating the building and adding a gym! However, the gym isn't included with being a resident. Since Bozzuto took on the building, they've made great strides to improve the area but the cost is consistently increasing. Management is great and very responsive. No problems but price!
Every time I need something the management fixes it promptly. There is a pool/hot tub and gym in the building, as well as movie room and conference area. As a student I use the conference area that also has wifi. There is also a printer and copy machine in the office area.
Love the Pepper Building!
The management here is amazing and very friendly. There is a great gym in the basement, as well as a bike storage room. Close to various bus lines, parks, restaurants, and bars. The building is also very pet friendly, and most people in the building have dogs. We love living here!
Super convenient location, but sometimes a bit busy
1500 Locust is an awesome place to live! My bathroom and kitchen are in great shape, plus the amenities are awesome. There are a TON of people there, though, so sometimes the elevators take a while and the traffic at the front door is sometimes overwhelming. That said, the location is incredibly convenient for getting around the city, for proximity to good bars, and for learning the lay of the land if you're new to town. I highly recommend 1500 Locust!
Perfect first apartment
My zen den has been an amazing first apartment. It may be small to some, but I have just enough space for myself, my cat, and friends. I love having my own washer/dryer, but I do wish I had hardwood floors and a garbage disposal. Everything else is great from the friendly greetings every single time I walk in, to the gym in the basement free to use at any time.
Amazing management, highly recommend
The Edgewater apartments is a great facility. The downstairs fenced in courtyard area is really nice if you have pets and just want to grill some food. The management is amazing, whenever there was an issue they would show up in no time and spare no expense or pain to fix the problem as quickly as possible. The place itself was re-finished before we moved in so it felt new. The kitchen area was large and great to cook in. Highly recommend. Only problem is if your apartment faces the river a train goes by many times day and night and shakes the room and is really loud.
Great Amenities and Responsive Managament
Great building and location. Concierge is very nice. feel very safe. packages delivered safely every day. can even sign up for local dry cleaners and drop off laundry at front desk and have it delivered right to the front desk. There is a rooftop gym, study area, indoor pool and amazing sundeck with cabanas and grills. Also a home theatre on the rooftop floor that you can rent out. Maintenance staff are quick to respond to any issues in the apartment. It is very pricey but great location, lots of ammenities, feel safe. Patco is right below the building. Downside: no dogs allowed (unless its a service dog) :(. allowed to have cats.
best roofdeck amenities in the city for the money
The enclosed rooftop pool was a selling point for me. Allows me to swim laps year round. The rooftoo sundeck is great when the weather is good. I definitely take advantage of the electric grills on the roofdeck too. The gym is small for someone who used to live at the gym in their free time but has enough equipment and machines to get creative to do everything but powerlifting. I dont think I ever really used the theater roombut there is a library where I spent a lot of time studying for my boards that has a great view. I think the amenities are worth the price of the apartments which are otherwise a bit smaller than you can get for the money elsewhere. Right across the street from the patco which was realiable even in the worst winter weather for commuting too (about 12 minutes to the broadway stop at cooper then a 2 block walk from there)
Not ideal living
The studio is tiny and can barely fit one persons personal belongings!
I moved into my building thinking that my commute to work in the Garment district will be easy and simple. But the building is so far from the train station!
The buses are never consistent with their times and the train is either packed or late.
Quite and enjoyable living on a small secluded island just far enough away from Manhattan. Personal red bus service during rush hours as well as a personal black bus weekend service to and from public transit to the apartment.
Great amenities and location
I really enjoy living in the Union Wharf, however the price is a lot for a student. The amentities are amazing the location is awesome on the water and right near all of the fells restaurants and bars. Parking being included is a huge plus, as well as the gym but it is extremely expensive for a student to live and pay that monthly.
I live at the Octagon on Roosevelt island and although I really like the island, there are a number of drawbacks for the building. The number one issue being the distance from the tram or the subway. There is a free red bus on the island but thats still time consuming due to the bus schedule for non-business hours and weekends.
The island is very safe and it is very quiet. I have a pool in my building but its outdoors and only opens about 4-6 months out of the year. A lot of children there so I usually can't chill and enjoy my pool.
