It really is a great building to live in. Clean, safe, great views, spacious, good floor plans within the units, respectful residents, friendly and helpful staff. A bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. What do you like most: The pool deck is great in the summer. Enjoy heating and cooling being building controlled aside from the fan speed for blowing it. Facilities people are very responsive and available 24/7. What do you like least: Majority of residents aren't terribly social. Freight elevators take a long time and are the only good way to access the laundry room. No screens on the windows.

The building is a great mix of different people and you can easily make friends or stick to yourself. I love the diversity and location. What did you like: The amenities are amazing. Parking onsite. The pool and sundeck are perfect in the summer. Packages are taken care of and so easy/convenient to get but still secure. The doorman, management, and staff are all friendly but not too friendly. What did you like less: The laundry room is terrible. Elevators can be annoying if any are down. Parking in the surrounding area is hit or miss.
