Great Choice!!

In the process of moving out of Genesee now and will definitely miss living here! Great apartment (Pepin layout) that was very comfortable for my son and I. The office and maintenance staff were always very friendly and prompt with any concerns. The pool and rooftop areas along with the gym and party room were great amenities. Never had an issue with parking either. My only note of caution would be noise. Maybe I wasn't used to apartment living after several years of home ownership, but I experienced issues with the noise level of my neighbors for an extended period of time. I know managements hands are tied a bit, but it did disrupt our schedules. Additionally, the apartment faced Penn Ave so the street noise took some getting used to. Overall, though, this is a great place to live and I would recommend it for anyone searching for a place!

Great apartments, staff, and location!

The apartments are spacious, equipped with laundry, and ample closets. The staff is friendly and super helpful. Love that I can walk to the grocery store, Starbucks, Target, and lots of other restaurants. Lots of bus options as well. Glad I chose to call it home at Genesee.

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!
