If I could give this place negative stars, believe me, I would! These people are liars and thieves. I have never been so mistreated in my life and I'm not the only one I've heard this from. \r
I lived with OT8 for two years and on the day that I moved out, I had at least five different neighbors congratulate me and tell me how lucky I am to be moving. \r
If you are considering moving to this apartment complex, do NOT do it! You will regret it. Don't be fooled by the fancy lobby in the main building or the great amenities because believe me, they do not make up for the horrendous management that they have here. \r
The guy I was working with to sign my lease left on vacation during the week I was supposed to be moving in, never called me or let me know what was going on. I had to go into the leasing office and see what the situation was the day before I was supposed to move in and no one had the slightest clue. \r
Within my first month I could have sued them! They had the maintenance people enter my apartment to ""fix"" something without my prior approval of them entering, I never even received a call to tell me they were coming in! The finger print entrance almost never worked, at least two of the three elevators were broken (or locked) on a weekly basis. The laundry card machine in the first building is always broken. \r
But mostly it's just the general attitude in the leasing office. They think that they are better than everyone else and mainly one individual in particular is the most pretentious person I may have ever met. And his attempts at being polite only make him seem that much more condescending. I know his name but out of respect for privacy I won't post it here. Which is giving them a lot more than they gave me. \r
Again, I lived here for two years, payed my rent on time, every time, never complained and at the end they have the nerve to screw me over. There is a reason there are always moving trucks outside this place. Everyone I've ever spoken to despises One Thousand Eighth Avenue Apartments. \r
Honestly, there are much nicer apartments with more respectful management all over the downtown Seattle area that probably cost less than this place. Do yourself a favor and go lease with them.
