Edison Properties

Feb 05, 2015



I've lived here for over 3 years in a studio apartment on a lower floor. I really like it and I have no plans to move until I buy. This is a rental only building.Pros: - Really friendly staff - doormen, building manager, leasing office (on site), maintenance, etc.- Great roof deck - nice furniture, outdoor shower (not private), bathroom, tables, chairs, plants, beautiful views from the 28th (ish) floor which I believe makes it the tallest finished building in the LES- Lounge - 3rd floor lounge with pool table, patio, tvs, couches, chairs, tables, kitchen, bathroom- Package room - the doormen accept packages and hold them for you. There's a building management system that alerts you when your packages have arrived- Building Management System - BuildingLink for managing maintenance, entries, inter-building comms and listings- Concierge - he will manage your laundry, dry cleaning, package pickup (and delivery), other odd jobs- Gym - 10+ cardio machines, 2 benches, 10+ lifting machines, stretching area, yoga studio (with regular classes)- On site/On staff leasing agents - really friendly, helpful, and responsive- Dog friendly - lots of cute pups- 3 elevators- Bike Room in basement; Manhattan mini storage in basement; Edison parking in rear- Thick windows - muffle some of the LES noise- Price point - most economical luxury building in the area- Appliances - new and nice- Maintenance - very responsive- Floor to ceiling windows- Laboratorio di Gelato on the 1st floor!- LOCATION - LES!


Cons: - Rent Hikes - these are annual and painful- HC/HVAC unit clanking - the AC/heating units make clanking noises all winter long when the heat turns on and off (which happens several times per hour)- Location - the neighborhood gets loud on the weekends. Mercury Lounge is adjoining and the music gets loud late at night. There's constant construction around the building - on street and adjoining buildings- Subway - makes the building rumble- 60+ days notice - this is standard for a luxury building, but it's hard when other building don't know availability until less than 30 days in advance
