I lived in this building for only a month in 2009 and had to hire a lawyer to break my lease, it practically ruined my life for the next six months and almost cost me my job. The building was so unprofessional about it and once I figured it out they didn't want to talk to me. NEVER live in this building. Bed bug situation is horrific.

I have gotten ATTACKED by bed bugs while living in this building. The trauma and experience from this situation will NEVER be forgotten and I will make sure to stop ANYONE from signing a lease with this company. VERY unprofessional and still have not fixed the problem.

I lived here about 4 years ago and I still have scars on my legs from the immense infestation that lived (surprisingly) in the bathroom walls.
After spending weeks of research and accumulating evidence, I finally figured out what the issue was (was just a poor college student with a laptop). Yes, you guessed it, it was bed bugs!!! My doctor confirmed this. The incredible degree of research that I did also confirmed this. Sadly, I know how this f*cking things procreate. What time they FEED etc.
This era almost ruined my life, LITERALLY. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't eat. I was paranoid and the management tried to blame me when I confronted them in a calm, mature manner might I add.
As I sat in their office and sobbed, they made remarks that I must have had something shipped from a foreign country (wtf?!), that they never EVER had such a problem before. When in fact, I had countless conversations with other tenants suffering from the same issue.
Most didn't even know what the bites were, they just suffered through it until their lease was up, in the end, just like I did.
The management certainly denied releasing me from my lease, regardless of my evidence. They wouldn't even agree to move me to another unit... Not that it would make a difference I suppose.
I inevitably had to throw away everything that I owned in that studio. STRAIGHT QUARANTINE. Uproot and stay with my friend as I continued to pay rent. Ridiculous!
This was literally the worst apartment experience that I have EVER endured.
I hope to God that any "potential" tenant finds this site and many others frankly, that capture the horrid experiences of this hell hole residence BEFORE they sign on the dotted line.
I, sadly, was not as fortunate.
This apartment should have disclosed this problem before anyone signs a lease. After finding dozens and dozens of bites all over my abdomen, gluts, and lower back. It looks like a heat rash and can be easily confused. However, after looking on my bedside there were bed bugs everywhere. Tenants admit they know there are problems to the area- they state that the management company says its only on a few floors. After approaching the management company, they denied any allegations
however, wanted to move forward with an extermination and the management asked what they needed to do to resolve this matter.
