Apartment Review from a Current Renter

The rent is too high, the parking is too expensive, the construction is too noisy, and the walls and ceilings/floors are too thin so I hear my neighbors constantly.

I have no desire to move to another community. For at least five years now, this has been more than a apartment: it's been home.

Just expensive

The condition of the apartments could be better. I moved into an apartment with carpet stains and water damage on the cabinets. The base boards out side my apartment are always very dirty

If you work at OHSU, work odd hours, and have to be close by, then sure.

Nice neighborhood, apartment is in good shape, and maintenance requests are fulfilled in a timely manner.

We are very happy here in the Matisse. We love our apartment... all the wonderful light! We really enjoy the neighborhood, too!

My only hesitation that I would warn about is the rent fluctuations.

Storage units aren’t safe

I think it's a good place to live if you want to be near the center of the city, especially if you don't want to own a car.

I’ve been at The Matisse for five years now and have no plans to move out. If anything, I would consider moving to a larger unit, preferably on the same floor. While far from being the newest building in the district, it is well maintained and has received several upgrades over the years to add additional value to living here and to make it a competitive properly. While the occasional protests are disruptive, this is still a building a feel safe living in.

I really wish the office opened earlier than noon on Sundays. I have had several packages try to be delivered during the 11am hour and because the leasing office was closed, they had to try delivering again on Monday or Tuesday, delaying me receiving the package. Then it is tricky to get the package from the office on weekdays due to my work schedule. That said, when I have requested my package be placed in a parcel locker the office staff is usually able to do that, which I appreciate.

Apartment Review from a Current Renter

Lack of regular cleaning in common areas mainly 6th floor hallways, elevators, elevator commons and most especially the trash chute. It has had the same trash and spilled garbage on the floor for 3 weeks or more, it is very discouraging and disgusting and poses health questions.

I would recommend The Matisse based on the location and proximity to downtown Portland. I love that this community is relatively quiet and that you get the feeling of downtown, without being in the mix of it. There are a lot of positives with living here, but there are also some negatives.
