  • Only if you are desperate!

    My mother was one of the first tenants in Manchester Lakes building 2. In 2001 it was a wonderful place to live BUT not anymore. There has been a drip in my mother’s unit for over a year and it is still not fixed. When she complained, management told her if she didn’t like it she could move. They went months with only one elevator because of a leak in the laundry room. They shut down the laundry room on each floor except the first one for months until they got a part. They are fixed but there is still no hot water. The maintenance staff routinely quits so there Are weeks with no maintenance help. The furniture and carpet in the common areas are old and stained unless you live in Building 1, which seems to be, at least in the surface, better maintained. I would not recommend this complex to anyone with the current JRK management. It has been take over several times and each time it gets worse. I cannot wait to move her out of there!

  • SECURITY

    Security is a major issue at this place. We have complained several times that the side entrance door does not lock and anyone can enter from the outside. So far, over one month's time and the problem has not been addressed. Residents deserve to feel secure and management should take this very seriously. There is also a very bad odor in the main lobby area, especially over the weekend. It seems that the trash shoot is not emptied from Friday to Monday, so the lobby smells all weekend long. Very nauseating when you enter the building.

    I am a 70 year old Male, I have lived at Manchester Lakes Senior Apts, on Silver Lake Blvd in Alexandria Va for 6+ years. In these years our community has gone through several changes which are somewhat normal for any apartment community. Our community is somewhat different however with it being a 62+, lower income only restrictions/limitations. Our community consists of two buildings with 138+ units, some one, some two bedroom units. We have had several management and maintenance changes, somewhat normal changes in staffing however, the current ladies in the management offices are the best, professional, courteous, ladies we have had to date. Taking into consideration that this is a 62+ environment we do experience some unusual occurrences. Some are a result of the communities mentality/behavior changing due to residents aging. The majority of our community are elder female and also many with various health problems, mostly physical. Some need to use walkers, some even are in wheelchairs. We have various activities that do change dependent of the majority of the interest of residents. We do have a movie theatre, a chapel and a well equipped exercise room for our use. There is a laundry area on each floor but is available to any and all resident regardless of the floor they occupy. Enough about the building, I do wish to again commend the Management/Maintenance staff for their continually professional attitude and behavior regardless of the behavior and/or attitude of the resident. These staff members may go into a private area or off property and scream but when they are in the office and/or various areas of building they are polite and professional. Specifically the Management Ladies are extremely patient, polite and professional at all times. These ladies handle the normal daily behavior of the building and when made aware of any problem regarding the building they deal with it accordingly. I do feel that they are under appreciated and only are contacted when there is a problem rather that just simply saying "Hi" or "Thank You." Again, I am a 70 year old male resident with minimal disabilities and can more or less function on my own but am aware of other neighbors various requirements and the staffs behavior. I personally want to say "Props" to [name removed] and [name removed] and Thank them for their professionalism and positions within our community. As these Ladies know I could ramble on and on and even here there most likely wouldn't be space enough.
