Broadway Ridge Apartments - Not safe for young children or those sensitive to tobacco smoke
Of all the apartments I've rented, I've honestly had the worst experience at Broadway Ridge.The buildings are old, so if anyone below you smokes, even if you are on the third floor and they are on the first (as in our case), the smoke rises into your apartment and fills anywhere from 50-90% of your home.
Our son was two months old when we moved there, so we tried to work with management to come up with a solution so that neither he nor we would be subjected to the smoke. Long story short, they told us that they weren't required by law to do anything more than they had done (they spoke to neighbors about smoking in the common areas). They eventually offered to allow us to move to a first floor apartment, but that came with the caveat that there were also smokers in that building and they couldn't guarantee that we would not have the same problem. Months passed and we heard nothing more about moving to the new apartment.
We eventually decided to break our lease, which of course led to us having to pay the $1580 early termination fee. The day after we signed our early termination agreement, Spencer (management) suddenly came up with the solution of having us move to another one of his properties.
We felt like this option could have been mentioned before (but, of course, it wasn't) and that, for them, it was all about the money.I'd say, if you are sensitive to tobacco smoke, have a young child, or want a maintenance team that actually fixes things the first time around, save yourself the trouble and don't move to Broadway Ridge.
