In particular, Laramar is having some success with unbundling services and amenities from the base rent and up-selling those perks (along with their associated fees) into the rental agreement. Increased deposits, pet rents, and parking space fees have all been identified as possible areas at the Fillmore Center where additional operating income can be gleaned without jacking up advertised rents. \r
That should tell you everything you need to know about this complex, which former Mayor Willie Brown wanted to convert to low income housing since 20% of the units were not habitable when they built it. Unless you get your jollies interacting with incompetent and just plain arrogant jerks in the office, save yourself the torture and go elsewhere. If the plans are for you to end up in Hell, you will get there, trust me - but don't rush it by renting here.
Cons: Awful staff, high crime, shootings, warfare, substandard construction in case of earthquake
