Terrible Management/Disgusting Dog Park

Management will never give you peace and are rude. You will find additional charges on your account MONTHS after move in that they refuse to remove or "approve" your documentation. You should not use the dog park as it is constantly disgusting and your dog may become ill. If you complain, get ready to be punished constantly by management.

A place to live

The staff does their best… unfortunately, its an old building and it has its issues. The neighborhood is rife with vandals and homeless, but hey, its downtown.

Great Value

The Equitable Building offers great space, in a prime location for a great value! There is no on-site parking offered, and a seasonal communal space that is a patio with a gorgeous downtown view. It is easy and informative to tour and the staff is friendly.

Excellent Location

I like to leave honest reviews. We love living at the equitable because of the vibe and the location. We have awesome neighbors. However, the last year has been tough. From the broken air conditioners to dog fights living here has been stressful. I don't believe as residents we were very well taken care of during the air conditioner issues. We still had to pay our $285 utility fee although collectively we went without air conditioning for 4-6 weeks. It has been disappointing and I feel like we could've been refunded as a solution.

Loved our time at the Equitable

We were lucky enough to stumble upon the Equitable Apartments last year, unfortunately circumstances are causing us to move, but we have really enjoyed our time here. The "Staff" is great. Chrissy has been so helpful, she really went above and beyond her responsibilities when we needed guidance. The Maintenance staff has the building looking great and they work to keep it that way. As well, they have been very responsive to our trivial questions and concerns. The 3rd floor dog park is a great convenience, I do not know how any dog owner lives in the city without it. We highly recommend The Equitable and the city of Des Moines.
