Overall the original developer did a great job of putting the buildings up and getting the retail clients. The current UDR group is not doing a whole of justice to that with their customer service. There are good leasing agents and then there are the ones here. No doubt these guys are helpful and professional at first. But they don't have much power. It's basically with one director or someone like that.
At $3700+ for 1BR with only 650 Sq Ft they are over priced for the post-Summer market. Some of their units are close to $4K. There are better buildings with more amenities. It's a shame the way the leasing agents here treat their customers.
We considered moving a bit north to there given the amenities and newness of the buildings, but the neighborhood wasn't right for me personally. Fiancée was ok with it though. Retail is a strong suit.
I liked "Columbus Square" when it was a tennis club and way before it was called "Columbus Square", and 650 sqft studios went for $350 a month. LOL!
Wow. They are priced the same as buildings in the west 60s!. If you are going to live around so many poor people and projects, you might as well live two stops up in Harlem along FDB and pay 30-40% less. Or if you want to pay the same, move to Lincoln Center/Time Warner area where the prices are basically the same.
10,000+ for a 3 bedroom - is it a super good school district? I heard it was NOT. For $6,000 a month you could get a much bigger place in harlem, and have $48,000 per year left for private school.
