I've lived here for just over one ...

I've lived here for just over one year now, so I feel that it's appropriate to update my review . The building was recently sold, so now instead of being "Regency Tower" it's transitioning to "Merritt on 3rd." The new owners are doing a major renovation on the main entrance and the common areas of the building, so the entire main ent

First month at Regency Tower .

First month at Regency Tower ... so far, so good.Temperature: A lot of people complain about how cold it is here, but it's really not that bad. If you're thinking about renting an apartment here, make sure you get the side that faces East Oakland, and not Lake Merritt. This is the south side of the tower. The south side gets all of t

The manager is great! He went out of his way to make sure I got the apartment. Very happy with the location and the apartment. Staff is very friendly except the woman the works in the office, she is horrible, unprofessional and rude. Other than that great location, good views, nice amenities. I would have given it a 4, but the experi

Note: I had originally written a scathing one star review for Regency Tower because there was a misunderstanding with Joseph, the property manager, about the terms in which I terminated the lease. He finally got back to me via e-mail and he apologized profusely and things were eventually rectified. (This note is to clarify if anyone

I live here now and I love it.

I live here now and I love it. The location is amazing. It's close to supermarkets, the lake, lots of good restaurants, etc. The building is well maintained and the neighbors are friendly. The neighborhood itself is fine; I walk my dogs around and have never had problems or felt uneasy. This may be because there is a school just next

We live here with our three year old twins. We love it! Pros: The price was great, it's very secure and safe (our car was broken into in our last apartment, little chance of that here with night security walking the grounds all night, plus WELL gated and secured parking garage). Our utilities are super small: $25 a month for electric

Excellent location, great value for the money, and good neighbors. Located within walking distance of Lake Merritt, Chinatown, downtown Oakland, and Little Saigon. 10 minute walk to Lake Merritt BART, and fast access to 880 and 580. The building is well maintained and the management has always been friendly and helpful to us. The peo

For once in my life I am truly happy with my apartment and leasing company. Maybe before the renovation this place wasn't worth the money, but my 2 bedroom is awesome. The Uptown is its only competition. To be honest I would have lived their instead but they did not have two things i wanted. 1. Wall to Wall carpeting 2. Designated ga

I've only lived here a month but so far my experience is more positive than other reviewers.The views from my windows of the lake and downtown Oakland are STUNNING.Managers, staff and most residents are very friendly for an 18 floor highrise. A nice mix of ages, races, etc.I'll have to see how cold it gets this winter!

On one hand, Regency has a lot of positives: it feels safe with the gated entries, it has a nice courtyard, pool, jacuzzi, and tiny exercise center. The apartments have floor to ceiling windows that are lovely along with large closets and nice carpet. It's dog friendly, so you see a myriad of pets on the elevator, which I love but I

Have been living here since two months now... and am Loving it!! There is a whole new management and they are already doing a lot better job than some of the reviews I had read about the place before.
