I already miss living at 7 West! Hands down the best apartment living experience for me. Andrew is such an amazing apartment manager and he offers a great service to the residents. The maintenance staffs and the cleaning staffs are amazing and they keep the apartment super tidy and clean. Thank you. I felt very safe living at 7 west and things were always taken care of. What can I say, we have lived here for about 2 years and we made lots of wonderful memories and progresses in our life. I highly recommend this apartment complex.
I lived in 7 West for a year. Overall, it was a great experience. The front office is responsive and work orders are addressed quickly. The hallways and common areas are regularly cleaned. My apartment facing the river had a terrific view. The kitchen was large and accommodating. The only reason I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5 is that my room in my two bedroom apartment was very small and overall inferior to my roommate’s, who was paying the same price. I felt like I did not get enough space for what I was paying in rent.
My husband I lived here for 4 years during his PhD program at the U and this building was a great place to live. It was a very convenient location to campus for him, very easy access to the freeways to explore the Twin Cities, and a short distance from West River Parkway (along Mississippi River) which we walked our dog on almost every day. We lived through several staff changes at the front desk and everyone we worked with was friendly and very helpful. Maintenance was quick to respond to issues. Towards the end of our lease we had some issues with our washing machine and then later on our shower, which were both responded to very quickly and fixed right away. This is a great building to live with a dog, all the staff love saying hi, there's treats available at the front desk and tons or other dogs in the building for them to play with. Overall, 7West is a great place to live!
We have lived at 7West for 3+ years and received excellent maintenance, security, & amenities during this time. The building is very conveniently located near 35W, I-94, the light rail, bus routes, bike paths, riverfront parks, and downtown. The building is very quiet and we rarely hear our neighbors. The maintenance team has been great, fixing any issues within 24 hours, they even have an emergency on-call line that responds quickly. We had our heat go out on a Sunday morning and an emergency tech was here within 1 hour. If I had to name any negative (albeit very small), the smoke alarms in this building are super sensitive and easy to set-off, which is just a slight annoyance for my dogs but pretty minor issue in the grand scheme of things. Would definitely recommend!
Would definitely recommend! I lived in 7West for five and a half years, while getting a PhD, and it made living through grad school and COVID-19 a bit more bearable. The building has a nice location between downtown and UMN, making it ideal for grad/law students or young professionals. The gym and clubhouse are nice facilities (really high quality for a building that’s not a high rise), and they have frequent resident events with free snacks and drinks. I find the common areas and halls super aesthetically pleasing and nice to come home to after a long day. Might not seem like a huge deal, but the windows are both beautiful and super well insulated (which you’ll be thankful for in the MN winters, especially if you’re from out of town). The in-unit appliances are also high quality and large enough to not be constantly doing laundry/dishes. There aren’t as many restaurants nearby as you might get in dinkytown or downtown, but TownHall Brewery and 7Corners Coffee are definitely good options and were go-to places for me (and great for happy hours or off-site but non-zoom work meetings). The bedrooms don’t have windows in most floor plans, which some folks may not like, but can also make it easier to sleep in late, since there’s no direct sun light. Only other negative I’d mention is a somewhat high price, but you get what you pay for and 7West is definitely a decent value for the location and amenities. Overall, I had a great time at 7West, and want to give shoutouts to Andrew Z, Danielle G, and the awesome maintenance team who made my years there smooth sailing. If you can swing it, definitely give this place a try!
