I love living here, it really is home

I moved in about six months ago and it has really been a great experience. The amenities make me feel like I am living in a resort, but the staff makes me feel like I am part of a family. I love that I can walk to many places and the location allows me to get to almost anywhere in the Twin Cities. The building is quite quiet for how large it is and it is maintained very well. I'd recommend it to anyone!

Excellent Assistance

This morning I had a flat tire. Very fortunately for me members of the Maintenance team, Rick and John, were working nearby. I walked over and explained to team my situation and asked if there was an air station available in the complex. Rick explained not currently, but he and John would be happy to assist. They left to retrieve an air compressor and inflated my tire. Their attitudes and assistance was and is greatly appreciated. So I decided to write this review to thank Rick and John again. Their assistance, along with all the other amenities and services for which I have access are all reasons I am very happy to be a resident of Genessee.

Best Place I've Ever Lived!

I love living at Genesee! Moving here is the best decision I ever made. I love everything about Genesee, including the unit I live in, pool, rooftop, business center, free coffee/tea bar, party room, free yoga classes, my balcony, etc. I also love living in this area! I can walk 10 steps out of my front door to get to Fresh Thyme, great outdoor patios in the area, my work is across the street, and it's a central location to St. Paul and Minneapolis. The staff really cares about every resident. When I didn't find the perfect unit for my roommate and me, they invited us back a month later to look at more options instead of pressuring us to sign a lease for something we weren't completely in love with. Thankfully we found the perfect unit because I can't imagine living anywhere else!

Tour/Lease Signing Process

I have not lived here yet, strictly a rating on the tour/lease-signing process. Fantastic staff really sold us on signing here. The leasing agent I spoke with didn't hound or pressure me and never complained when I was asking my 500 questions. I am very excited to start living at the Genesee.

More Than Just An Apartment, A Wonderful Home

I ve lived in many apartments from New York to California but Genesee is by far the best of all I m at a point in my life when I could live anywhere in the world, and I chose to live here The people, the amenities, the maintenance - it s all terrific. I love the community gatherings at different times throughout the year. I love that there is a wide age range of people who live here. I love the pet residents and really appreciate how they are welcomed and nurtured. And I m going to especially love having a major grocery store right across the street Genesee is a precious gem in the Twin Cities

Its A Fairly Nice Place To Come Home To.

Pretty nice place, lots of pretty good amenities, however a lot of the 'fit and finish' looks good but is pretty cheap. Also there are no closets in the 1 bedroom for the bathroom.

Love It!

The Genesee team makes an effort to make it feel "at home". They have a sense of urgency applied to everything they do, and have been so friendly to me during my stay. The facility is always clean which is extremely important to me, I feel SAFE, and have never had issues with noise or unpleasant neighbors. I would recommend to any person to live here if you are looking for friendly neighbors and a safe/fabulous place to live.

I Love Them. The Staff Is Great!

Genesse uses top of the line equipment and products. They offer services other complexes do not. There is staff on duty to help with any problem or need their tenants have..

Consistency In Management

I love the Concrete Tower, as I call it. I am fortunate to live on the 8th floor. Quiet. This building has the look and feel of a modern, metropolitan co-op that you might find in NYCity, Chicago, or LA. I would have never put this kind of service, ammenities, and curb appeal in Bloomington, MN. The security level is terrific. We have some younger residents here and they have told me that their parents are happy with how safe the envrionment is for their independent living son or daughter. Because the main lobby area with the community room, theatre room, business center, and mail boxes is so open, it feels like a hotel or conference center versus an apartment building. I think this is a well thought out property. I like the materials used for my unit. I would recommend this place to any person. The demographic diversity is like NONE that I have ever seen. It is like living on the University of MN campus with all of the wonderful people from all walks of life.

We LOVE Living Here.

The amenities are awesome. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The buildings and grounds are kept very clean. The apartments are quiet. There are coffee shops, grocery stores, restaurants, Herbergers, Target and Kohls not mention a number of other stores within 2 blocks of here. We're on the bus line. 494 is a block away but you never hear the trafific. Genesee is in a perfect location. After selling our home and not having another one ready to move into, we decided to live in an apartment while we house searched. It had been many years since we lived in an apartment and we weren't sure we'd like it. Much to our surprise we like it SO well we are still trying to decide if we just stay here. Genesee Apartments are absolutely wonderful.

So Far...So Good

I've been at Genesee for three months so far and have found that the pros are: - Extremely convenient location - Nice-looking apartments with stainless appliances and a smooth-top range as well as full size He washer and dryer - Concierge with services such as in-apartment package and dry cleaning delivery - Self-service car wash - Well-maintained units and grounds - State-of-the-art fitness room - Professional staff Cons: - Walls are paper-thin - It seems that one-bedroom apartments are not necessarily only for one or two individuals - Apartments are small in relation to cost of rent - Lack of storage space I have mostly enjoyed my first three months at Genesee. I was worried that they allow small dogs but I haven't noticed any "accidents" in the common areas nor been bothered by any barking. For the convenience and for having a "brand new" apartment, I recommend it.

Very Nice, Friendly Staff. Enjoyable.

I would say it is worth the price for the comfort and safety of the secure and warm buildings. I would also let them know that it is still an apartment atmosphere so understand that no amount of money will ensure the apartment is completely quiet and free from night-time pool/party go'ers.

Couldn't Be Happier I Moved Here

It's like living in a 5 star hotel. The staff is extremely friendly, the amenities exceed expectations, and the "little extras" remind you, you've chosen a lifestyle not just an apartment. The office staff all know you by name and there to help with any need!

Comfortable And Convenient Living. Friendly Active Atmospher

I like living here. If you chose to live at Genesee though, to make it worthwhile you should really consider if you will use the amenities. As a single adult, I pay a great deal more for rent than I would somewhere else in the city, but it is worth it if you actually use the conveniences in the building. I am disappointed however that there are many sites that are blocked on the Genesee computer network, even when you are using your own computer. When I moved in I thought I would be able to use the internet lounge more often and not have to pay for wi-fi in my unit, however so many sites are blocked I find it more or less useless.

Amazing Amenities, Wonderful Staff, And Friendly Neighbors.

Great! Love the amenities the apartment complex has to offer as well as the location since you are close to everything you could possibly want to go to. Highly recommend this place to anyone. One of my favorite things are the events that are held by the apartment staff like "Cooking with Kate". Awesome opportunities to meet everyone and have an entertaining night right at home.

I Love Living Here - I Can't Hear Anything At All Ever - It

Its the best place - I have been wanting to move back to the area after I bought a townhome - Bloomington did themselves proud by allowing Genesee to be built! The apartments are phenomenal, the residents are the best and the staff is outstanding! I am so happy to live here at Genesee~

It Is All About The Small Things

I use the Carwash bay often. You even provided the brush to scrub off the dirt and grime. It is these little things that make living here so nice. Now only if Pizza Hut would recognize the building address.

The Best Apartment Complex We've Ever Lived In!

I would sum it up like this: Living in an apartment complex is not for everyone, for those that enjoy this lifestyle, you'll be in heaven at Genesee. For those who are skiddish about apartment life, Genesee truly makes it feel like home; your mindset about apartment living will be forever changed (Genesee does it right!).

Incredible Home With Fantastic Staff.

If you are looking for a beautiful home with all the amemities, Genesee is the place to live. This isn't another depressing apartment complex. It's quiet, beautifully designed and carefully maintained. They always great you by name with a smile and helpful attitude. If you want a grown-up, stylish place to call home at a very reasonable price, visit the Genesee Apartments and Townhomes. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Not Your Average Apartment Complex

I was tired of living in what I felt was a college dorm. I watched as this place was being built and stopped by. I was instantly greated by an awesome staff who made me feel like a friend and not a rentor. My place feels more like a condo rather then an apartment. Granite tops, spacious rooms, HE Washer/Dryer, stainless steel appliances, calm and classic paint and trim, clean common areas and I could go on and on. It may seem pricey, but it is worth it. Now that the construction is finished and the retailers are moving in, this place will be even better. I love it here and so will you!

Amazing!

Its been wonderful so far. The move in went as smooth as can be and it was great to have food and movers provided for us! The construction is still pretty noisy and the 5:30 - 6 am wake up alarm of bulldozers can be slightly irritating but that's to be expected. Its been great to live in a brand new apartment and I'm really glad we made the choice! Can't wait for the swimming pool and fitness room.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The building is clean and super quiet. The extra touches like the marble counter tops, stainless steel appliances the the neutral colors are a huge plus. Not to mention that any sort of shop, store, or restaurant is within walking distance. 35 W and 494 are within a block of Genesee. It's the perfect location.

Its a new place that is changing as it opens up, for the features we have not yet tried like the gym and rooftop! I am very excited and so far the maintenance staff and office staff have been very helpful in all issues that come up.
