Only big issue...submitted by David M. - |Recommended: Yesupstairs neighbor's are loud so loud every night who ever is in 1530 awful.
Love it heresubmitted by Ashley S. - |Recommended: YesI've been here since January and it's been great for me and my pup. The neighbors are really friendly, the staff is great, and the maintenance people are quick and very professional. I love how I am close to everything. It's easy to get to Virginia, downtown and pretty much anywhere you need to go. The amenity space at Modern on M is my favorite. I love how much outdoor space there is. I can't imagine living anywhere else in DC
Paper thin floor ceiling. Noisy upstairs neighbor nightmare.submitted by Patricia W. - |Recommended: NoIf you have neighbors living above you, who stomp and run instead of walk, drop heavy objects, and drag furniture around every night until 2 a.m., it will be hell. There is no soundproofing between floors, therefore you won't get much sleep. Apart from the noise, staff are courteous, location is great, nice gym, rooftop lounge and pool. When renovation of the other lobbies are completed, additional amenities will be pretty good.
Great communitysubmitted by Monica M. - |Recommended: YesI have been living in the classic building for 5 months and I am honestly very happy. The maintenance staff, concierge are always friendly and willing to help I have never had an issue that wasn't solved. The current renovation has been a little frustrating but I know it for a long term improvement. Its a short walk to the Wharf, metro and supermarket close by, pool, BBQ area, great gym. I am happy
Absolutley love it heresubmitted by Santiago V. - |Recommended: YesI love everything about this apartment, loaction , ameneties, neighbors everyone is super friendly.
--submitted by Sadie T. - |Recommended: YesOverall, this property is great with fabulous amenities and friendly staff. The property is kept super clean and services occur very timely. Parking is a nightmare -- the garage is incredibly expensive, there are not enough spaces in the surrounding area to street park, and the staff is not lenient about cars left in the temporary spaces...
Money Well Spentsubmitted by Scott S. - |Recommended: YesI was looking for a modern apartment...I was sick of outdated appliances, crappy utilities, and I really like contemporary architecture. Modern on M gave me everything I was looking for It's hard to say no when you get offered 2 months of free rent for signing up I was very impressed by the general state of the property on my first tour, and Nicole answered all of my questions and helped me get settled in very quickly, which saved me several nights worth of a hotel room or AirBnB rental. I actually cancelled several viewings I had set up at other places when I got back from the tour...I knew this was the place You have every amenity you could possibly ask for and the renovated gym was pretty neat, although I'm fairly old school and would have loved to just have a bench bar instead of specialized machines. That's just me though. Metro access is incredibly convenient, and Safeway is very close by. There's a pretty nice selection of restaurants available nearby, the only thing missing conveniently in the area is a gas station. I only used the parking for a week as I was in the process of moving out, but there was ample parking and the garage was well-lit. I have a slammed suspension and was a bit worried about my WRX even being able to get into the deck, but this turned out not to be an issue as long as I took it slow. What really set this place apart was the staff. I got offered my dream job and was afraid the conditions of my lease were going to prohibit me from being able to move away and take the job. Morgan did an amazing job getting everything sorted out for me and helped me to get out of the lease on very fair terms. He went above and beyond to help me and I blown away by how helpful he and his team were...I had assumed that all properties owned by property management companies were going to be unreasonable, inflexible and hard to work with, but the staff here were the complete opposite. If I had stayed in DC, this complex would probably have become my home for quite a while.
Great Place to Livesubmitted by Karim S. - |Recommended: YesThin walls and lots of churn doesn't discourage much at all this place is still great.
Beautiful Locationsubmitted by Kira B. - |Recommended: YesThe facilities are great and the leasing team is very personable and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. The walls are a tad thin so there is a little lit of noise bleed form the other apartments, but overall it is a wonderful place to live and the pricing is pretty on par with the area

Classic Building need tender love and caresubmitted by Theodore W. - |Recommended: YesUpkeep and mondernization of classic buildings pales in conparison to Modern buildings. Lots of water damage and subsequent cosmetic damages to include but not limited to mold, mildew and warping of ceilings, floors anf
response from property -Dear Theodore, We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback for Modern on M. We are disappointed to hear of your recent experience, but we are happy to report that over the past 4 years, the Modern on M classic buildings have undergone several exciting transformation projects. We have added additional lighting to the basements, a refresh to the hallway corridors, completely renovated the laundry areas of each building to create amazing new amenity spaces, installed brand new state of the art laundry equipment that allows you to monitor the status of washers and dryers through an app, added more resident bike storage, renovated our courtyard to include new comfortable seating areas, grills and fire pits as well as re-tiled and resurfaced our swimming pool, which is one of the largest residential pools in the District and upgraded the entire building HVAC system, just to name a few. I would love to set up an appointment to speak with you in detail regarding the issues that you have experienced and explore possible alternate solutions. Thank you, and I look forward to speaking with you soon. Sincerely, Shawn M. Community Manager 202.621.2250
Lovely community, with some setbackssubmitted by Luana F. - |Recommended: YesI love the feel of community, the amenities, the friendliness of people and staff, the location. It is frustrating, however, that the older buildings were so poorly built you can never get a moment's peace from hearing what a neighbor is doing 24 7. I'd move to a different new apartment in the community tomorrow if I could.

Great community, convenient location, incredible staffsubmitted by Matthew S. - |Recommended: YesModern on M is one of the best communities I have ever lived in. The location and amenities are great, but it is the staff here that stands out. From leasing and maintenance, to management and house keeping services, they are professional, respectful, and genuinely care about their residents. Philip leasing helped me from day 1 and has always been there to assist along the way - they don't stop trying to make your experience great after you sign the lease. Marcus Maintenance Manager is responsive and focused on finding solutions. Management is outstanding as well. I had a minor convenience issue and Morgan Asst. Manager went above and beyond to immediately accommodate my needs and make things right for me. The staff and their willingness to put their residents needs as a priority is what separates Modern on M from the rest. The location is obviously great and convenient, and the apartments and amenities are as well, but it is because of the staff that I will stay with this community as long as I can.
response from property -Dear Matthew, Thank you for your wonderful comments. I will share with our team. We are so happy to have Philip, Marcus and Morgan here at Modern on M. We are glad we were able to assist you and with your minor convenience issue and we look forward to your continued residency. Sincerely, Shawn, Community Manager

Great staff, but the management keep residents more informed before changes occurred.submitted by Garrett S. - |Recommended: YesThe concierges John and Ryan in particular are excellent, insightful, and really helpful. In fact, I believe that each building should have its own staffed desk, at least overnight and during the morning. I've never had any problem with maintenance, they are always prompt to fix my issues. The location is great for the Wharf, Navy Yard, and the National Mall. However, while the complex is transitioning, management has not been sufficiently informative to residents about changes prior to making them.
response from property -Dear Garrett, Thank you for your wonderful comments about the concierges. I will share with our team. We are so happy to have John and Ryan here at Modern on M. Additionally, we really appreciate your feedback regarding the sufficient communication to residents. Resident comments are very important to us and we would love to set up an appointment with you to discuss your feedback. Please feel free to contact us directly at 202.621.2250.
