Chroma

The apartment that I have at Chroma is a two bedroom corner unit and it is a very nice apartment, which is well laid out and very bright and cheerful. Noise level is at a minimum and the entire complex is quiet. I have had several maintenance issues and my experience in trying to solve simple issues has not been good. The maintenance person is very personable and seems to want to please so maybe he is just very busy. However, trying to find help with simple maintenance issues that I cannot solve myself should be easier than it has been (for me) so far. I had hip replacement surgery at the end of the summer and while I was able to secure a handicapped parking space in the garage the heavy doors are extremely difficult to manage if one is unable to use the full force of the body to pull open and hold open the doors. There is no handicap access to manually open the door. The exit doors to Grove Ave have automatic openers; the exit to Sidney St does not. Overall, living at Chroma is a pleasure. Maybe maintenance service will improve.

Overall Improvements May be Needed

- Need general announcement about garbage shoots. Residents need to realize that if one shoot is left stuffed with garbage or if they forget to close the door, ALL the floors get affected. I am tired of going up and down the stairs trying to identify the problematic floor and shoving other people's garbage down the shoot. - Need general announcement that recycle goes to the first floor. - Need a size/model restriction for cars being parked in compact spots. Large cars squeezed into compact spots impedes on the adjacent full size lots, which is not fair to residents paying extra for those larger lots. - Would like to see management respond to inquiries faster. It sometimes take days and numerous follow ups before receiving a response.

Fixed the thermostat issue in the gym

We have been trying to get the temperature regulated in the gym without success for 3 years. It was unbearably cold in the winter time so much so that we limited our use significantly. We had given up but Chester without us bringing the issue to his attention fixed the issue by regulating the temperature directly on the equipment in the ceiling instead of using the thermostat, which never worked. It is great that someone from Maintenance is addressing the issues to increase the livability of Chroma.

Chroma is great. Building is really nice, underground parking garage is fantastic. Little expensive, but that's Cambridge these days
