I lived in the Jefferson for one year – and the earlier comment is spot on: it’s basically an enormous frat house. On the weekends, it would just get so, so dirty. Trash/vomit in the hallways…broken glass everywhere outside. This was 2009-2010, so maybe things have improved by now. While I was living there, there was a blog about living at the Jefferson. The blogger has since moved out, but it will give you some ideas on life there: http://jeffersonatcapitolyards.blogspot.com/. One thing I will also say – getting my security deposit back after I left took months and months. I found management frustrating when dealing with the late night antics, and I found it frustrating when it was time to leave. On the plus side, the apartments are lovely and it’s proximity to 8th street is pretty nice! Also on the minus side, if you have a dog, it was difficult for me to find clean green space to walk her around in near the building.
