It's an ok place to live for the price.|Recommended: YesFor the most part it's ok living here. It's all about what's important for you. For instance..I'm in walking distance of my job. The rent is pretty fair for what they offer. The staff is mostly courteous and friendly. All of those things are important to me. The elevator's are quite often down. The largest of the two elevators the freight elevator hasn't consistently worked in over 8 months. There is an insect problem, which the landlord may or may not have a lot of control over. Maintenance has not responded to a simple request for a closet door problem or to change an air filter. Mind you, I don't call often. But it's all about what is important to you. Good luck
Thank you for your review Lester!

Thank you for the review Patrick this means a lot to us!!!
Comfortable housing at a fair price.|Recommended: YesVery fair price for downtown living, with reasonable parking available for tenets but poor options for guest parking when having visitors over. Apartment was not in the best shape during move in and maintenance team had clearly done a rush job when preparing apartment for move in as paint was splattered in areas it should not have been. Water shut downs happen multiple times a month for leak repairs to other apartments. Water pressure in my shower has gone from bad to worse during my stay, however I have been comfortable and will continue to live here during my stay in Memphis. Outside of apartment needs a full paint job or power wash, as well as internal hallways needing tons of repairs including missing ceiling panels and random painters tape left across the aisle, making it embarrassing to bring visitors over at times. Accuracy of photos on website compared to actuality is about 40 . Pest control visits once every 6 weeks, which is nice.
Thank you for the review Anthony!

Blair Tower Review|Recommended: YesOverall, I would rate Blair Tower as a 3.8 out of 5. The idea of living downtown and in a high-rise apartment gave me such thrill Don't get me wrong, the apartment and staff is excellent, it's the maintenance and dated appliances that I'm having an issue with. I have put in three maintenance requests for my freezer because it does not freeze properly. One minute it's working fine and then the next everything in my freezer has thawed, yet again. I can't even keep frozen meals or ice cream in my freezer due to this, which is probably the saddest thing for me I have yet to see a solution to this issue that keeps reoccurring and I'm starting to think that just replacing the whole refrigerator would be better on the maintenance crew instead of coming to fix the problem every week. Another downside is the parking. Currently, the parking is horrendous. Trying to find a parking spot is like playing musical chairs. I have actually seen people who do not even live in the building use our parking spaces and go to LeBonheur across the street. On the bright side, they are getting the parking situation fixed with new parking passes and stricter parking regulations, so we will see in the future. All in all, living in Blair Tower has been exceptionally well I would definitely recommend this high-rise to people looking for a new apartment. I would also like to tell potential renters that the balcony space is amazing and the views are breathtaking, but when it rains it floods. The balconies here do hold a little water, which could easily be fixed by management. I am proposing that all top floor balconies require an awning that extends over the balcony. Doing so, it will prevent the top balcony from catching all of the rain fall and preventing it from flowing onto each floor below.
Thank you for the review Jacob!
Good |Recommended: YesExcellent
Smoke alarm now works again|Recommended: YesI reported that I needed to borrow a ladder as the smoke alarm was beeping every so often, an indication that its battery needing changing. A very tall guy came up that afternoon. reached up to the ceiling, removed the alarm cover and put in a new battery. Perfect.
Best manager ever |Recommended: YesI've lived at Blair Tower for the past year and a half, and management has changed twice since. I gotta say, they nailed it this time I'm very happy about how prompt to response and effective Monica is. All you have to do is literally go downstairs, talk to her and she will get things going right away. She is managing 2 buildings at the same time and still managed to get things done in a timely manner She is the best manager I've ever came across. On the other side, however, there are roaches crawling on the lower floor apts and its absolutely awful. But they do make an effort to have the pest control company come every week to spray the apts and make sure they don't spread out. Monica has gone above and beyond to try to address the roach problem in our unit. Overall, I'm quite pleased to live at Blair and I'd recommend others to live here. The renovations sound very promising and the new apts are looking great Besides, there's a pool and 24h open gym that is very well equiped.
Blair towers looks very nice|Recommended: YesIts quite, the neighbors are helpful if you need it and staff is helpful.
Security needs to be 1 priority|Recommended: NoThru 5 plus years Blair Tower has been a great home. The renovations are most likely much needed. But, before I remodel my kitchen, bathroom or painted the walls I would first make sure all the locks on the doors into the home function properly. A email I received today stated, Additionally, we are exploring several long term solutions to enhance everyone's quality of living, especially as it relates to eliminating undesirable traffic at all hours. Anyone can walk into the building thru the front door or the basement anytime without a swipe . The back entrance into the freight elevator is mostly unlocked with no camera. Blair Tower is and has been wide open for a good bit.
Great place to live |Recommended: YesI absolutely love it ... The environment is so pleasant . The ladies are so nice and always call me by name .. Which makes it more of a personal connection .. I have had one issue where I had my car parked and a tenant from a higher floor dumped their dog poop off the balcony which of course landed directly on the hood of my car.. I was of course a little warm behind it ,but I didn't blame Blair tower as a whole .. I still love my place and would recommend it to anyone whose looking for a quiet and peaceful living ..
