Riverview has been my first ‘grown up’ apartment since graduating college and working full time. I absolutely love being home and spending time in my apartment! Here are some of my favorite features of Riverview: – Location: practically downtown St. Paul and near W 7th street activities, Xcel Energy center. Quiet community. Close to all of the St. Paul action, but peaceful near the river and tucked away from the business. Close to 35, 94, Shepard. Airport. Depot/Lightrail. Cute brewery within walking distance “Bad Weather Brewing Co.” – Pet friendly: such a beautiful scene for walking my dog with the Mississippi river in the back and plenty of trails both walking and biking. I also appreciate that one building is for people with pets, the other if pet free. – Amenities: The fitness center is nice and has everything you would need. The technology in there is great too- watch TV on elliptical/treadmill. I have yet to use the TV room- looks great. Also, tanning room for the long winter days… – Front desk staff: They are so friendly! They respond promptly to my emails. Great service to take in packages. -Maintenance: The lock was sticky on our door, maintenance fixed it within an hour of my request. -Safety: I feel very safe living here (I’m on first floor). -Common rooms: Nice space to rent, or get out of the apartment. People do use the common rooms, which creates for a sense of community. -Cleanliness: Staff is there ALL the time keeping common areas clean. Upon move in, my apartment was SPOTLESS. Carpet steamed too. -Community building: I appreciate all of the events they host to again, create a sense of community in the building. Also the notices of local happenings such as Winter Carnival, or what play is at the Ordway. My only wish is to not have carpet!
