My boyfriend and I have lived at Rivergate for almost a year and have had nothing but great experiences. Here are some of our highlights: - The building is properly maintained and secure (fob entry only). - The staff (including maintenance) are always welcoming and quick with responses. - We loved having the renovated vinyl flooring and new counter tops. The bedroom is good size with a nice closet. - Great location to downtown, about a 5 minute walk. Also, the market across the street is super convenient. - The parking garage is connected to the building and affordable - They are VERY pet friendly (pet patio) - Updated gym with new equipment Overall, we loved Rivergate and recommend it to anyone who is looking for affordable living downtown!
Renter, beware!!! They will keep your deposit AND charge you almost double for their renovations on your way out!! Pathetic. "Knife marks" lol... 4 or 5 reviews mention exactly what you are doing. Liars. Thieves.
I've lived here for 16 years,& it has been,for the most part,a pleasurable experience.The neighbors,with only very rare exceptions,are good,not many problems.Nice community room,even better patio.The maintenance crew are first rate,& service is prompt.Recommended.
I lived here for more than 1 year and surely it's the worst place to live in Downtown Minneapolis. Building is quite old and houses are a little small but worst of all the Main Office Staff is pathetic! They overly complicate things and don't provide simple solution for anything. It almost feels like they didn't wanna be working in that office and just try to get by their daily tasks. Initially I had planned to extend my lease but just bcoz of the staff, I had to leave to somewhere else even though it cost so much time/energy to shift to the new place but it was better than having encounters with Elizabeth and her assistant.
Please read this if you consider living there. Spoiler alert: please don't!! I wish I could give it a 0 star, and this is from someone loyally lived there for about 5 years without making any troubles. let's start with the parking ramp, I lost my bike in the ramp, and the management claimed it is not their responsibility. I didn't make a big deal out of it. I moved on with the lost. Then, when it came to my moving out in this March, the management decided to shut down the larger elevator 2 days before my move out date. I went to talk to the manager see if they could offer any help, and she got angry/agitated on me for asking for help and made it sound like it was my fault to decide to move out during their elevator renovation. I turned in the move out notice 2 months ago. Guess what, the moving company I hired increased the price because they had to carried the coach and mattress from the 5th floor to first floor on stairs. I moved on with this lost. I was generally happy I was out of this miserable place. Then, today, 3 weeks after I moved out, I got a letter from the management told me that not only they are not going to return my deposit, but also I own them about $400 for discoloration and knife marks on the counter which knife cut were there when I moved in 5 years ago. About the discoloration of counter top, i lived there for 5 years, even if I never touch the counter top, the color will fade away. your counter top isn't made of diamond/gold. it is plastic. On top of that, they were planning to renovate the whole room anyway, but their bloody greedy heart think they can squeeze more money out of me for the last time. So do yourself a big favor, read this comment, have a laugh, save your trouble by finding a different place.
