    I am giving 16 Penn fails in so many respects. I have lived here about five months and have noticed numerous shortcomings. Before this, my spouse and I lived in two other senior apartments. First the Positives: 16 Penn has three things going for it: (1) location, (2) location and (3) location. Outside of location the buildings has nothing special about it. You can easily walk to the library, two grocery stories, numerous restaurants, movie theaters, etc. Outside of location, there is nothing to recommend 16 Penn. The Negatives: Simply put the good folks that run this place simply do not have their act together. Here are some example: Text messaging: The building started a process of being able to send group text messages out from the office. To date I have received exactly one text message regarding Botox treatments. It does not send out messages regarding the Bagel morning, Wine Down, etc. Candy machine: The building got a candy machine last summer. It is currently in its first location. First location was near the entrance of the lower level garage. Second location was at the far corner of the upper level garage. Third location, after numerous complaints about the first two, is inside the building near the entrance to the dog walk. That location is down a flight of stairs. That means residents who use walkers, etc., cannot access walk. You cannot have everything you want: This is the common response for any suggestions/request. For example, twice a month the building provides bagels and cream cheese. One time, I suggested the building get a toaster for said bagels. I was told: “you cannot have everything you want.” Another time, I suggested butter, same response. So people started bringing down their own toaster and butter/jam which would disappear as soon as they go back to your room Every time there is a game the building says it is going to provide snacks so people can watch the game in the building’s living room. Numerous times, only drinks provided were “weird” beers and weird sodas (anyone for black cherry lemon lime?). I asked about providing some Coke and 7-Up. Was told “you cannot have everything you want.” Also, today is a Friday. Earlier this week a notice was placed on the wall of living room that said it had been reserved for that Sunday. Guess there will be no football party. And of course no text message was sent out. At the last monthly Wednesday “Wine Down,” the following was provided: (1) wine by a wine seller, (2) one large bottle of 7-Up, Diet 7-Up, and Doctor Pepper, and (3) three smalls tubs of cheese. No crackers, no pretzel, nothing else. Security: This location is downtown. Once the office closes, there is supposed to be a night watch-person but they must not be walking the building at night. Twice in the past two weeks, residents have come down to the kitchen area (where the free coffee machine its located) only to find a homeless person sleeping there. Should you or your loved one move here? Unless you want the location there are a lot of nicer places out the

  • Just an Apartment Building, Nothing More

    I currently live in the building after living in two other senior complexes. The only thing going for this building is it’s location. It is a short walk to the 16th Street Malls. There Is a large number of restaurants nearby, three grocery stores within a mile, cleaners, drug stores, etc. Heck there are even two 7-11 Quick Shops within two blocks. If you don’t have a car it is perfect. But other than its location, it is just an apartment building. Every two weeks they serve bagels in the morning. You always see the same three to four people.

  • This Place is Horrible

    The manager and the management company are the issue here. Most residents are unhappy including this one and I currently live there. No on site maintenance. Issues such as no heat and no hot water. Perimeter of property is never cleaned up including trash and dog poop. Trash inside the building is never empty. Building is non smoking but always smells like cigarette smoke and marijuana smoke. The management company takes the stance of "oh well". Management company has no experience managing a luxury building their expertise is managing tax credit properties and this one is managed the same way. First visit will look good but not when you are actually there. Past issues have included homeless in the entry ways and people that jump over the patio wall and then have access to the entire building. Management always blames someone else such as the city for these issues but it is their issue. Elevator has never worked. Next level up is the daughter of the owner of the management company so when you speak to her you get no where. When you tour just look at the finishes in the bathrooms and you will immediately be able to tell what you are in store for!
