The dryers suck

Feedback Problem for Schoolhouse Flats

Once again my clothes are left damp because these dryers suck. They're pathetic and it's ridiculous that I have to pay for them when they don't even dry my clothes...'s picture

Hello Alex,

We are sorry to hear that the dryers are not fully drying your clothes. We would be happy to speak with the company that services the washers and dryers. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. 

Thank you,

Schoolhouse Leasing Office Hours

Announcement for Multiple Communities

Good Afternoon Residents,

To better serve you, we will be closing the Schoolhouse (Downtown) leasing office and combining forces with our Palma Ceia Leasing office located at 2402 Teresa Circle, Tampa 33629. The Schoolhouse office hours will be "by appointment" only. The goal is to ensure that you receive a high level of customer service from one of our dedicated Customer Care Associates located in the Palma Ceia office.

You may continue to drop rent off at the Schoolhouse location, as this will still be collected.

The phone number of 813-304-2776 is still active...'s picture

Our after hours line along with emergency maintenance will be available should any emergencies arise. All other inquiries we will address promptly on Thursday morning.

Thanks so much and have a great night!

Good Afternoon Schoolhouse Flats Residents,

I want to thank you all for your patience as we have worked through the washer and dryer situation. We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience it may have caused you and we are working diligently to fix the issues.

Due to the inconvenience with the washers being the wrong size and issues with the payment systems, as a courtesy we will be awarding a $50 credit per apartment home for the inconvenience. You will see this credit reflected in your accounts this week.

The washers will be changed out tomorrow.

We do hope...

We spoke to the company about how to properly start the washers in Schoolhouse Flats. The washer must be on lite setting before running your credit card payment. Once payment is accepted, you can switch to the desired setting.

**set washer to lite, run credit card payment, then switch the setting on all washers**

Have a great weekend, everyone!!

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,

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.
