The management is very disappointing. Though smoking is not allowed in the building, the place is a dump, specially in the weekends. It looks like the owners of the building dont care much.

LIVING IN THIS BUILDING IS A NIGHTMARE! When I signed my lease in August, I was informed that the renovations would be complete by the Fall (Septemeber or October); that was a LIE! There have been ongoing renovations since I moved into the building. I am awakened at 8 am every morning to drilling and hammering which usually lasts throughout the day. Before signing my lease, I was also informed that the building amenities would be accessible in October BUT residents don't even have access to a gym here. Management is overcharging to live in a "luxury" complex with no amenities and no accommodations. When I got locked out of my apartment after hours, I was told I would have to pay a fee to have maintenance let me in; what is the point in having a concierge who can't help with urgent matters such as these? Please save yourself a headache and RUN in the opposite direction before considering moving into the Alexander House Apartments. Unless you want maintenance in your apartment multiple times a week, fire alarms randomly going off at all hours of the night, no access to running water in your apartment, nonstop drilling, nonworking elevators, and no amenities, this is not the place for you.

Reading other reviews on this community I was tempted to stay away - glad I didn't! This building has been given a new lease (boom-tish!) on life... apartments are nice and modern with stainless steel fridge, nice flooring, etc. Leasing staff were really helpful when I visited, too! Thanks for the tour!

Excellent environment to live in. Great Management Team and superb maintenance service. Recommended for all age groups and families with children. I enjoy the friendly and courteous staff of the property and recommend this property very, very highly.

Do not live. There continues to be on going construction in the building which causes a ton of issues and management is not accomadating in any way. Construction workers continue to enter apartments even after the unit has been "completely renovated". I was forced to leave my apartment by management and construction workers for the majority of a working day. Elevators are slow due to construction workers and will continue to be slow as they are replacing one elevator at a time which takes about 6 months per elevator (total of 4 elevators). Management is not responsive to maintenance requests (took then 2.5 weeks to fix my broken hvac unit in my apt and they only fixed it because I took off work that day and refused to leave the management office until they got heat to work in my apt again). Leasing office is rude and unfriendly.
