Rated 1 out of 5?by Phillip T. Resident Perspective So I am writing this review to not only share my experience but to inform others, because one of the biggest unknowns about choosing a new apartment is that you just don't know what you're getting into. The appeal for me when it came to the building was the history, layout of the floor plan, and the proximity to my work. These are the only three things I like so far after living here for a few months: Amenities: The washer and dryer are sold as High Efficiency, which much like the reviews above...are actually not. Although they may be labeled 'HE' these machines are terribly inefficient and incredibly cheap. We have a water damage panel on the side of the machine which is connected to a sensor on the floor, this I thought was a nice idea and a good safeguard against flooding. The problem is that before a wash will actually start, you must reach behind the washer to press a green button #I have no idea why#, even though I have already set the washer to Run. After about 15-20 minutes of washing, a loud chime will come on that after a minute or two turns to a loud beeping and will stay this way until you intervene. You must walk back over to the washing machine and press a white button #again no idea why#, to resolve this chime. The washer does not stop washing, it just beeps horribly until you press that white button. If you do not take your clothes out of the washer immediately after completion, they will smell of mold. I am not exaggerating with "immediately", honestly you must be there to remove them or you will have to wash them all over again. The above review related to the dryer is indeed true, a 60 minute cycle on 'High' heat will leave your clothes damp, and this requires another cycle immediately or your clothes will again smell of mold. The internet speed provided by Century Link at this location is significantly lower then my previous location in 55102. This can be resolved by paying more, but that's another cost to think about. You cannot get 'Dish Network' like they advertised because they do not even have a satellite on the roof or permission to do so yet. You can get Comcast digital cable, but I'd rather not have cable if that's my only choice #which I presently don't#. The parking ramp is an unattended facility, so if you pay for the 150 dollar a month underground contract parking and the gate is not functioning...good luck! You're parking on the roof. The 75 dollar a month spots are first come first serve and are rarely free below level 4. This ramp is the equivalent of elevated street parking with all the same dangers, it's not a controlled facility. Oh and lastly, there is a chime from the elevator that goes off every time the elevator reaches a floor. This echoes terribly through the building and can be heard within your apartment everyday. I feel bad for the people that live right next to the elevator. Construction is on-going and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. expect to hear lots of noise. I could go on to explain all the issues in detail that I have but am just too tired to be frustrated anymore. There is: No Sundeck#s# No Clubhouse No Storage Spaces No Resident Lounge No Resident Center #yet# coming 2014 apparently. No Guest Rooms No Concierge No House Sitting Service No entry to the building unless you physically go to the skyway level or street doors to let people in. The office staff is getting better after they fired one of the ladies, but almost every single promise made to me by the sales staff has fallen through. Seriously, the only thing that has gone right is that I am in the apartment I toured and agreed to rent. Even the 'Strip Club', one of the best restaurants in Saint Paul is refusing to move into this building, they are instead moving to another location in Lower town #good for them!!# To sum this review up, this property will be amazing but do not expect anything beyond 4 walls for a seriously hefty price tag within the next few years.

Rated 3 out of 5?by SheRah2 Getting Better - Update to SheRah Response You know what they say??just knowing what to expect can make you feel satisfied with conditions. So keep in mind that we would still rent here. I would have updated my earlier review, but this website isn't recognizing any email addresses for login/password reset. I wish there had been some kind of holiday party or tenant social??regardless of the tenant lounge not being open. Sure something could have been sorted out. Staff got much better and more responsive. We really like the leasing manager and the building/operations manager. We really like all the staff - security, cleaners?.. We've gotten use to the parking, but space can be an issue, which makes it seem a better value, however, I still have to add 5 mins on to get to the garage and get down to the exit. Unheated parking spots are not reserved, so this past week returning from an appointment I had to park on the top, outside level (6a) and the entrance on that level to the building isn't keyed for tenant entry. I'm confused by the person who gave the 5 out of 5 score. The pooch porch has no drain so even before the freeze the porch was out of order for 2 weeks+, the astroturf is almost always saturated, and because only have the astroturf was replaced, there was frozen urine on the asphalt portion. Fortunately the snow means we can take the dog across from the front of the building. We still dislike the appliances - especially the dishwasher and the dryer. The "smart," energy efficient dryer means you can put the dryer on the "very dry" or "60 min" setting in the morning and return to completely damp clothes. Then you have to monitor the dryer all evening to make sure it runs. We assume there is a temp gauge, but it stops the barrel from turning, it doesn't just turn off the heat. The dishwasher is all plastic and the rack design means it fills up poorly, requiring too frequent washing -- a bummer for water and energy and frequent unloading. The five out five star doesn't account for the resident lounge still being closed. It's not expected to open until early January. I hope it's comfortable. Again, most of the amenities listed on the website are not open. I simply think it's poor customer service not to have full disclosure where the amenities are listed. The 2nd elevator is now, apparently, permanently out of order. An issue since not only is the one elevator very slow with a weird setting for how it goes up and down between multiple floors waiting, but it's used by all staff types, and when tenants are going up from the skyway (floor 2) to any floor up (to 6) only one floor can be selected once the passcode is typed in. Ultimately the care and attention by staff, the beauty of the building, local features, and coming features (Depot, metro, lunds supermarket) make this a good place and promising for the future---albeit I think the powers that be owe it to tenants to get the array (tons) of incomplete amenities up immediately as weather permits at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5?by CJ Just moved in and loving it! My boyfriend and I just moved into the Pioneer Endicott apartments and we love it. The parking is attached to the building and we thought the $75 per month fee was less than comparable apartments downtown St. Paul (some were charging $105!) and one place had parking two blocks away, we thought this was our best value.. We also felt that the rent amount was reasonable as well, far below anything in Uptown and Minneapolis and less than the other brand new apartments in St. Paul. We also have a dog and taking her out when I'm in a hurry is a hassle so the pooch porch was a nice option for us. The fitness center just opened and the party room/business center I was told would be finished in November. We knew this going into the deal, but we loved the historical features of this building. There was nothing like it anywhere that we looked. When it is all finished, it will be spectacular. We'd recommend living here. The staff has been great to deal with all through the process. We are looking forward to our year here. Thank you. October 29, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5?by SheRah Ghost Building, No Services Yet The Pioneer Endicott is a ghost in a neighborhood that feels considerably empty most of the time. There are good places and good selection in nooks and crannies, but hidden away, often not listed on search sites. The building doesn't have a finished entryway, and except for routine fitness room and a small pooch porch, none of the listed building amenities are listed. There's also a reason why the Apt rooms aren't shown. The washer and dryer are in front of a fake doorway for the closet, facing into the bedroom. No door. Blinking lights for the wacky flood warning monitor. The dishwasher, fridge, and kitchen sink basin are deplorably cheap. The parking situation is unbearable and terribly overpriced. It is parking in a garage further up the block on Jackson. The leasing agent hasn't had any move-in flaws fixed broken double door mechanism, broken shade molding, broken top shelf of dishwasher. However, security and routine staff care is amazing. We wish our feedback was better since the leasing staff were great during that process (we leased based on calls and websites before moving here). We understand this building is top rent for St. Paul, so we would feel badly if we didn't share our feedback. Overall, we like the space, but like I said, only the fitness room is complete and the entry area isn't even functional. For your designer rent you can look forward to meeting any guest, delivery person, or utility providing on the ground floor, as there's no door person and there's no intercom or call box of any kind.

Rated 1 out of 5?by PioneerRenter Sold a bill of goods Pioneer Endicott will impress you with a wide range of amenities that are unfinished and dates for completion that continue to change. Make sure you can justify the cost for the apartment you rent only--not the additional amenities you will be promised. October 8, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5?by DiDi Pioneer Endicott Apt Building Very, very nice units. However, it doesn't justify the pricing and all the extra charges. Way too pricey! September 12, 2013
