The Good And The Bad...
From: -Anonymous-
Date posted: 5/20/2011

"RPT is an affordable housing community. It's got a percentage of section 8 units and many "affordable" units, starting at an advertised special of $689 with H/HW included. This may sound like a great deal, and it did to me... I went through their insane checklist of documents and got a 509SQF 1-BR apt. on one of the upper floors for $703 (two years ago).

The GOOD-
1) The upper floors of the building are RELATIVELY quiet. All I could hear for noise was my neighbors downstairs having screaming matches while their baby cried. This isn't too frequent, and so I choose to deal with it.
2) I also have one of the best views in the city- my apartment windows face the river, and the placement of a corner unit allows for extra natural light.
3) The pricing is still among the cheaper in town, although within two years they've raised the price to $748, which brings them closer to market rate.
4) Before I moved in, the apartment was mostly gutted and redone, so I had new carpets, a new bathroom sink, and many other new features.

The BAD-

1) During my first winter here, there was very little hot water. They claimed that the boilers were old, and replaced them just in time for spring. However, last winter I spent about a month with no hot water at all in my apartment. I complained, and was told the issue was not just my own. hot water was not reaching the upper floors due to a bug in their system, and they were "working on it". A month later, just in time for spring, they fixed the issue. Was the rent prorated for the month, considering I was paying for the hot water I wasn't getting ?? NOT A CHANCE.
2) The buildings have a fire alarm system that starts wailing uncontrollably across the property whenever it senses smoke. Residents in the building must be cooking in the middle of the night, because the alarms routinely go off at night, at least twice a month.
3) Recently Princeton properties have changed their maintenance policies for RPT. From now on, the resident has to pay for any repair that has any chance of not being their fault. For instance, if your drains are clogged, you may have to dish out about $30 to clean them. My toilet seat partially broke off last fall- I was advised to "take care of it myself, to avoid a charge of $50".
4) Parking in the complex is problematic. The lot closest to the entrance is often filled with cars that have no resident-stickers, and security don't call the towing company nearly enough to have spaces available for tenants. Instead, you will often need to use the farther lots. During the winter, plowing is done sometime after the storm, usually after the snow has turned solid, and then it's just pushed around to the sides. Parking lots are then reduced to about half of their normal size. There is also no visitor parking whatsoever.
5) Washers and dryers in the laundry rooms are often broken. Not sure what the residents do to them, but getting several loads of laundry done on a Sunday afternoon is out of the question. The costs have recently also gone up to $1.75 per wash/dry.
6) Some of the neighbors are crazy... I'm not joking! From kids roaming the halls, through the most disgusting smells of cooking (with their front doors open!), and to wild middle-of-the-night drama... If you happen to consider renting on one of the lower floors, ask to see the unit on Saturday afternoon before signing on the dotted line.
7) The elevators break often (approx. twice a month). Living on an upper floor, I am frequently late, and have had to take the stairs down several times."

A Positive Review...

"I've lived here for about 3 years and have enjoyed my stay here. The rents are reasonable and the staff friendly. It's close to shopping and restaurants, which is what I love best about living here. With the rising gas prices, location is key. I just feel like people never leave a review unless they're unhappy so I figured I'd leave something positive. You just can't please everyone."
