    I currently live in this building and it’s great. Management is prompt, professional and kind. Building is clean and well maintained with a very friendly neighbors. Would definitely recommend to a friend looking for a convenient location in Petworth!

    This is a good deal. I wasn’t able to find a studio this cheap in Petworth in a couple of years ago, but might have just had bad luck.

    Pretty sure the pictures of the unit do not correspond with the unit they’re saying is at that price. I was checking Paramount out a couple of months ago as a rental option, and it’s the basement studios that are at that price. The pictures look to be showing a non-basement studio den, and a galley kitchen. If you look up available floor plans on the Paramount’s website, the discrepancy between the ad and reality is clearer. That said, I know of people who are happily living in the building, but on an upper floor. And while I’ve heard good things about the management, I wasn’t so impressed by the tour I got and their ability to schedule it smoothly – could just be one person that dropped the ball in my case though?

      I feel like a lot of apartment buildings do this and I really wish they would stop. I get that they want people to look, but not being honest in the ad is a major red flag for me and even if I liked the apartment they were offering I’d be less likely to rent from them simply because they were misleading.
      (Thanks for flagging this issue, anon!)

      The photos appear to be from multiple apartments, as they show 3 different alcove rooms with windows.

      Still, the attitude of building management, which is, let;s not bother to show you photos of the actual place(s) for rent, because your time (to come and actually see for yourself) is not valuable to us, is a real pain. The old real estate bait and switch…

    I wonder how much replacement of systems (electrical, heat, water) has occurred. Plus I am astounded that somehow the basement studios have been made habitable. I’ve been there for work (on roof and basement) a few times over the past 15 years and the main electrical system….whew-ee. They had 5 cellular carriers on the roof and they had to move when the Safeway blocked the antennas.
