Re: “Hyacinth Lofts

I resided at the Hyacinth lofts APT 403 (owned by Tower Press) for 6 months - I moved out early due to job relocation.

During my time here, I found that management (Tom and Dave) were everything but helpful. We had a leaky roof for the entirety of our residency and despite countless maintenance requests, the problem was never solved. We had 3 permanent buckets that constantly collected smelly, discolored water that dripped from huge cracks in the ceiling and brick face. At one point, I was told by maintenance "they could not find the problem" despite the obvious water stains on the walls. Our neighbor APT 405 across from us also had issues with a leaking roof and told us "management will do nothing - the roof leaks in my bedroom, onto my bed, and on my computer equipment constantly". He moved out 4 months into our residency. In addition to our leaky roof, we also had a serious mold issue due to poor installation of the dishwasher.

Another huge disappointment is the level at which Hyacinth loft is dog-friendly. It's great a feature however management DOES NOT monitor who is vaccinating their dogs. As a result we had a slew of young residents purchase puppies without vaccinating their dogs putting other dogs at high-risk for Parvo. In addition, there is no care taken by management to treat the yard for fleas or ticks - our dog constantly picked them up from other residents who refused to use flea treatment on their pets. Dogs are often off-leash in hallways and you can hear dog fights break out throughout the day. There were several new residents who brought untrained dogs into the building who would bark, growl, and lunge at passing residents. Clearly there are several owners who are ill-informed about dog safety and management does nothing about it.

If you're thinking of living here, please don't. Save your money and rent from someone other than Tower Press, Hyacinth Lofts, Tremont Lofts, 2030 Lofts, Fairfield Ave. Lofts, Merchant Ave. Lofts, and Erie Building Lofts. Do not be fooled by "live/work" or "loft-space". If you are looking to join a strong community of artists, these are not the lofts for you. You'll find plenty of old articles regarding "The artistic community at Hyacinth lofts" - do not be fooled. There is no sense of community nor are there any creative individuals living within the lofts - most residents are heavy drug users or sublet their apartment out as an Airbnb - as a result there are plenty of strangers who have no respect for the property or current residents.

I wish I would have trusted the reviews I read before moving into this place - nearly everything is true. Following our move out we were charged a cleaning fee in which Tower Press claimed it took 6.5 hrs to clean our apartment. Our apartment was studio style - 780sq ft. We were told by management we would not receive a large portion of our security deposit because of this. It's completely ironic because when we moved in the place was disgusting - obviously uncleaned - there was grease in the cupboards, mold, cooking grease on all the appliances, burnt food in the oven. We left the apartment impeccably clean in comparison however we're still denied our security deposit.

Do not live here unless you want to feel scammed and unsafe.

Re: “Cuyahoga County Public Library-Orange Branch

Modern building that lets in a lot of light. Peaceful. Not a cozy place like the classic libraries of Shaker and Cleveland Heights. A few very rude and uninformed staff members. Clearly these people feel they are not accountable to the public. Enjoy the view!

Re: “The Shop

Not bad. Not bad at all.. I was usually quite inebriated during events, so my opinion might be a bit skewed. .But, if you want a dark, smokey industrial size garage, packed with people enjoying the hell out of themselves while some small-time, albeit entertaining bands cause the concrete, brick and steel to ring with high frequencies- then, might as well stop by if your nearby on a saturday or some other time. Lastly, I'd like to emphasize the venue's hit-or-miss quality with regards to events. It seems to me, from a little experience that it struggles to find enough performers on occasion, which can mean that the house band may perform a song or two (nothing new.) In closure, I'll confess that I haven't visited The Shop in almost three years ( due to staying in Orange and Riverside counties in California for a while-not to mention a mutually hostile relationship with a regular there, but that's for a different place..)

Re: “Hartville Flea Market

There is something for everyone here! From antiques to cell phones and so much more! There is an outdoor market that sells fruits and veggies and items you would typically see at a flea market. Go inside and find one of a kind items that are hand crafted including hand spun knits and crochet, amish wood. Let me say-the food is just phenomenal! One could easily make a day of walking and bartering for your next treasure. Wear comfy shoes, it is a LOT of walking and worth the drive from CLE!
