Dryers are terrible and overpriced

Feedback Problem for Schoolhouse Flats

This is the second time that I have had to spend money to re-dry my clothes that did not dry the first time I paid the ridiculously high $2 fee to use the dryer. I am irate at this whole situation. When I looked at this place back in October I told your employee that I didn't like the place because I would have to pay to use the laundry machines. She went on to assure me that you guys were switching over to free laundry machines, and that is what swayed me to choose this place over the other apartment I was looking at. This is fucking bullshit. I have spent over $20 in the past week and...

Good morning Alex,

I am sorry to hear that you are having ongoing issues with the laundry, we have ordered larger machines that will be in soon. In the meantime you can call the number on the machines for a refund of monies that have been lost. If there is anything additional that I can do for you during this transition please feel free to stop by the office to discuss or call me at 813-304-2776.

Thank you,

Hello,

My name is Mark Ehlert. I live at 404 S Newport Avenue #7 at the Schoolhouse Flats. I spoke to someone in the office about the residents in #9. I was told that there have been issues with them before. I have them a warning around one month ago saying that the quiet hours are from 10pm-8pm everyday. It is now 12:21am as I type this, and they are being very loud with their friend(s). This can’t continue as they have been warned before. Please help make this place a quieter place for everyone. My phone number is 813-734-9490. They won’t stop until something is done unfortunately.

Also, it is now 3:20am and #17 was extremely loud. I just told them to quiet down along with the quiet hours, and they didn’t really care too much. Please do something with these two units as some of us have careers and are saving for retirement.

PEST CONTROL UPDATES

Announcement for Multiple Communities

Hello Mckinley Hyde Park Residents,

Our goal is to provide you with a great living experience and a wonderful place to call home! Pest control is very important in apartments and in multifamily housing or other densely populated buildings. Living in gorgeous Tampa Bay is amazing, but unfortunately this can also mean rodents and other pests. Household pests usually include rats, termites, house mice, ants, roaches, etc. Like any other living being, pests tend to move to a place where they can survive and their needs are met. Pests are likely to be attracted to warm spaces and...

Hello Alia, Did you have pest control at Olivia Flats today? There is a horribly strong Chemical smell in the hallway that has made its way into my apartment and surely others. If so in the future could you please have maintenance air out the building so that we do not have to have these strong smells in our apartments as well. Thanks

Good morning Nancy,

We did have some work done in a vacant apartment yesterday, I am very sorry to hear that this was not properly ventilated and will make sure that we address this with the vendor. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Thank you,
