Known Issues

Loud Washing Machine

The washing machine is very loud on the high speed portions of its cycles. Don't be alarmed if this happens but please try not to use the washing machine between the hours of 8pm and 8am out of respect to your neighbors

Bedroom 1 lets in light and sound

Bedroom #1 has moveable sliding doors made of glass and steel.

Once pulled out fully these isolate the room from the living room and common areas for privacy.

However due to their low opacity they let some light in, and due to the gap under the doors they let in noise from the common areas.

If one of our guests is attempting to sleep in this room while their traveling mates are having a lively experience in the common areas they may find it difficult to sleep due to the light and noise coming from those areas.

Bedroom #2 (Master) feels insecure because of door to outside

The master bedroom has a door that leads directly to the back of the building.

This is the area where parking is reserved and where you can find the building's trash disposal area.

It is a glass door that lets in a lot of light and it may make some people feel uncomfortable.

The area is very secure, the door is sturdy and the building is outfitted with a burglar alarm.
