Rated 5 out of 5?by karilynn22 The Lyric is a wonderful place to live
I've lived at The Lyric since June of 2011 and I have loved every minute of it. The apartments themselves are gorgeous and the building is well constructed. I rarely hear a neighbor. Great amenities, too, with a washer and dryer in every apartment. I love the ladies that work in the rental office, they are practically family and have been nothing but accommodating and friendly to me. When I have a maintenance request, it's fixed RIGHT away. They really do a great job here. Absolutely, without a single doubt in my mind, the BEST apartment complex I've ever lived in. It's like living in a 5 star resort!

Rated 5 out of 5?by lawstudent2013 Love our home at The Lyric!
I have lived at The Lyric since August of 2010, which was shortly after they began leasing units. I have loved my time at the building and continue to renew my lease because I can rely on great service, value, helpful staff and maintenance, and a top-of-the-line apartment. I can't say anything negative about my experience so far and plan to stay!

Rated 5 out of 5?by Frederic Awesome place to live!
I love the Lyric. It is an awesome place. It's very centrally located, close to the highways, bus stops, and the light rail. The amenities are great. I'm lucky enough to live on the 6th floor, near the outdoor theater, the solarium, the sauna, and the grilles. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have truly gone above and beyond to help me have a great experience at the Lyric. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 1.5 years here and hope to live here for a long time. Sincerely, Frederic

I have lived at "The Lyric" since August 2012 and I love it! The staff here is really polite and welcoming. If something is malfunctioning it gets taken care of quickly! The Maintenance Staff are very helpful and efficient! I live on the top floor (6th), so I am not troubled by noise. The building was built in 2010, which means a very modern style with very nice-looking apartments. In the title I refer to the Light Rail currently under construction. With a station being built right outside the building, going to Downtown will be easy! "The Lyric" is located between Downtown Minneapolis and Downtown St. Paul in an Industrial neighborhood. There is a liquor store one block from the apartment complex, with McDonalds and Subway close by. It is located close to both University of Minnesota and University of St. Thomas, making this a nice place for students to live!
I believe you will have difficulty finding a better place to live than here!

Rated 5 out of 5?by JMC We LOVE our home at The Lyric!
My significant other and I searched for a long while to find the perfect apartment in the city. The Lyric has exceeded our expectations in all areas. We have both experienced apartment living prior to The Lyric. We were impressed during our very first point of contact with the office staff. They were attentive and not at all pushy to get us to rent. Once we saw the property, it sold itself. It is beautiful, very well-managed and extremely clean. We had zero complaints when we first visited and have been happy renters, 18 months and counting.
The Lyric holds themselves to very high standards. They aim to keep their renters satisfied with the level of service they provide. I have lived in other apartment buildings where the office staff is non-existent or very hard to get a hold of and where maintenance takes days to respond to anything..even urgent matters. At The Lyric, the office staff holds regular hours, makes sure that they are accessible and are both friendly and warm. Maintenance responds to requests on usually a daily basis, but from our experience it's normally within a short time of our request for help. The staff at The Lyric, alone, is one of the main reasons we wanted to sign another lease. They are phenomenal. Some other positives: spacious beautiful apartments with large floor to ceiling windows, unique amenities like a roof-top outdoor movie theater, a generously sized workout room with a variety of equipment open 24 hrs, several community rooms to hang out in including a party room where large events can be held, yoga/hip hop and other onsite classes offered as well as community art shows regularly scheduled on the first floor. Lastly, of any place we have ever lived, the community here at The Lyric is the most pleasantly diverse group of people. The range runs from small children of families to elderly and from all walks. My family and I enjoy this diversity and the friendly, inviting community we call our home at The Lyric.

Rated 5 out of 5?by Antenious22 This Lyric can be sang!!
Nothing comes closer to a perfect living space then the Lyric. Very personable and responsive staff; professional and respectful maintenance; beautifully designed eco-friendly apartments; amenities unmatched by any apartment community I have seen (amazing selection and versatility in uses); gorgeous views of the Twin Cities on the south side of the complex; ample storage in the apartment and a storage unit in the heated underground garage; a compassion for the arts in the decor, the architecture, the staff and the fact that they built a theater with a reception area in the building.
Located 10 mins from both downtowns the Lyric will be one of the most convenient location in the Twin Cities by 2014, as it will be half block from a newly completed light rail station and a block from a Nice Ride location. (looking forward to saving on the gas)
The rent is appreciable but with all of the amenities mentioned prior it is well worth the budgeting. Along with a pretty low stress environment. (did I mention the hot tub available about 7 months out of the year... Heaven!)
Lastly, on a more specific personal note... I am a professional performer working through out the Twin Cities and I have found that the space fosters a wonderfully creative environment. I feel inspired and productive when I am home and that's been a true asset to my career; to live in a place that I can create in.
I love coming home!

The Lyric is modern in style and amenities. A great mix of people live here and a sense of community is deliberately fostered by the management team. As a dog lover I especially enjoy all the happy dogs who live here. The social spaces are really great and host weddings, parties, art sales and concerts. Yet my own apartment is remarkably quiet and private. Everyone who lives here is eagerly awaiting the launch of the Green Line light rail with the Raymond Avenue Station right out front. Note that all the light rail construction near the Lyric is completely done. In the meantime the Metro Transit bus service is excellent. The neighborhood is known for its population of artists and seems to be drawing new and interesting shops and restaurants. I think it's a great place to live!

I have been at the Lyric almost 2 years and I love it. The apartments are spacious with quality amenities. I have a huge closet which easily fits my clothes and sewing stuff. I love having my own washer and dryer. Appliances are top quality and the living area is beautiful with lots of large windows. This is the best value in town for size and amenities. Anything else comparable is much more costly. Maintenance is terrific with immediate response and well skilled. I have found the office staff to be extremely pleasant, responsive and helpful. The building is beautifully maintained, and quiet. The exercise room is great and there are several beautiful common rooms for meetings or gatherings. It will also be exciting when light rail starts up with a station a block away. Easy access here to just about every where in the Twin Cities.
