    The concierge staff is great and it's a pretty convenient place for Metro and food/entertainment access. However, they are currently renovating and are incredibly intrusive and terribly uncommunicative about it. If you work "normal" hours away from your home and are OK with people constantly needing access to your unit, this place may be great for you. If you're not OK with them needing access to your unit (averaged over 7 months) twice a month and having them communicate the notice and changes in schedule poorly then you're probably fine here. If you like to think of your unit as more of your unit than the building's, I'd look elsewhere. I'm sure the place will be great once it's completely renovated. But, as a resident, I have no idea when that will be. You'd think they'd have a project outline. Maybe they do, but they're not telling us. And haven't for more than a year. They keep coming up with new things to inconvenience you with. If they tell you when the renovations will be done when you come in to look at units, know that it's likely a lie. They have no idea when they will be done.
