Recent Work Orders - Thank You

We recently had a few work orders performed (A/C repair, new entry key, etc.). Just wanted to say that the maintenance team did a fantastic job. We are always very pleased and impressed at the responsiveness and quality of work. We greatly appreciate everything the team does, and want to say thank you. The strength of the team is another reason why we love living in the building.

Work Order Success!

Recently, the drain in my bathtub was badly clogged. I submitted a work order in the morning and came home that evening not only to a fully cleared bathtub drain, but also to a fixed lightbulb above my my vanity, that had just gone out the night before. Our custodians really go above and beyond the norm when helping out Catalyst residents! Love this building!
