The Lafeyette, built in 1903, is a former hotel with a long and interesting history. According to the Maine Historical Society (MHS), the luxury hotel was converted to an apartment building in the 1960s. There are 101 units in the seven-story building: a combination of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, in addition to eight commercial tenants on the first floor. Rents include heat, hot water, and water/sewer, and some also include electric. Residents have access to card-op laundry and trash/recycling removal. The Lafayette is a “Low Income Housing Tax Credit” (LIHTC) property; 73% of the apartments are income-limited; the others are market rate. You can see two old pictures of 638 Congress Street on The MHS website: one circa 1907, and another circa 1950. 638 Congress Street was added to the PPM portfolio in February 2012.

sticky soda

It looks like someone spilled soda all over the floor near the elevators leaving a sticky mess. I believe it was Sprite as they left the cans and punched a hole on top of one... Also - could you look at the carpet in the left elevator? Not sure what the stain could be... Thank you!

Apartment Parking

The parking for this apartment is easy and straight forward, however, I think it would be good to have the lot numbers (parking space 1, 2, 3 ect.) the signs should be not only painted on the ground, but on the reserved parking spaces as well. When I first moved here, a month ago, I parked in the wrong space due to snow covering the lot numbers, and think it would be more effective and less problems for all lot spaces to have the numbers painted on the ground and on the reserved parking signs, if possible. Please consider my request, and thank you for your time. Sincerely - Norajean Ferris

A few problems

The smoking rules are not followed and the front steps are a place for people to congregate and smoke forcing everyone else to walk through or around them and over their dropped butts. The stairs always smell horrible and typically have garbage in them that stays for multiple days. The noise has gotten exponentially worse in the last few months, with yelling, banging, and back parking lot strangers conversing.

Lafayette 611

A great 3.5 years! Month-to-month process enabled an eventual poor roommate experience, as working a night schedule I was never able to meet the replacements before move-in. Roommates were incredible at first, and slowly degraded. Also, moving into an already unclean apartment littered with past tenants' belongings left a less than desirable end of the lease, having to clean out things that I never knew existed. But overall, can't complain. Would/will recommend!
