Fremont Studio Apartments are small living spaces at a comparatively lesser price than their larger counterparts in the upscale Pearl District.
They're perfect for those transitioning, new in the area and single people on a budget. Pet-friendly. Straightforward. Close to mass transit. Few amenities, but if you live there, you're buying the surrounding lifestyle and will have the vibrant Pearl District and downtown Portland at your fingertips 24/7 so a tv in a lounge somewhere elicits a "meh" from me anyway.
Great management since Mackenzie came 7/17 to Fremont and kicked bootie like a superhero on the mess the last management company left behind. David, her sidekick in the office, is pleasant and he seems to care. Refreshing. Lauren oversees the onsite maintenance which is quick to respond to requests. I see the new owners are finally able to move ahead and do some nice upgrades and I expect that there'll be some five-star reviews popping up once those are done. So it seems like a good time to rent here while it's on the upswing but still has some good prices attached.
Regardless of where you live, there will always be those who whine and break rules, as in smoking in prohibited areas, especially in a multifamily unit setting. That's life. It's all about how well the management team responds and my experience was AMC's team is both quick and diligent in solving these issues to the extent the law allows.
While my high ceiling with a concrete floor, ground level studio was fun, I moved in April after a two-year stint at Fremont, in search of a quieter existence than the bustling Pearl could offer. Good luck in your search. Cheers!
