    There are definitely pros of living at the Cosmo: 1. Location. Close to CHS Field, easy access to I-94, 35E, and 52. Great restaurants and farmers market in walking distance. 2. Well maintained, decorated, and great amenities. 3. The management was very attentive (until I gave my notice). 4. Pet friendly, although it tended to get a little messy on the sidewalks around the building. But very important reasons I would never rent there again: 1. For months a homeless person was sneaking into the building and camping out near my apartment, smoking pot. My apartment reeked of marijuana and it’s supposed to be a smoke free property. I felt very unsafe, but management failed to keep this from happening repeatedly. In addition, it would take hours for anyone to clean up the mess they left behind (see photos). 2. Location- if you don’t want noise this is not the place. The fire alarms go off for hours at a time at the building across 6th Street. There are fireworks from games at CHS Field, and noise from the rooftop bar across the street. All to be expected from living in the city, but something to be aware of in advance. 3. Management. After I gave my notice to move out, communication ceased. They also seem to be short staffed quite often, even though they say they offer concierge service. On move out day, on a Monday afternoon, I couldn’t find anyone in the office to do a walk through or give my keys to. I tried several times to get through on the phone. I ended up emailing them and asking for a return phone call, but heard nothing. Word of advice, just be aware of what you’re getting into. The property looks beautiful and management may be friendly when starting the leasing process, but if you expect safety and management availability, this is not the place for you.

    I rented at the Cosmopolitan for 20 months between 2021 and 2022, and I am grateful to have lived in such a fantastic apartment complex. Let me share a few reasons why I'd hightly recommend Cosmo to anyone considering a new home in Lowertown! First, Cosmo is located *right* next to Mears park (which often hosts live music, outdoor movies, festivals, and more!), the St. Paul Saints staium (CHS Field), the world-class St. Paul Farmers Market, an easy-to-access 94E on-ramp, and dozens of fantastic eateries and bars. Part of what you pay for (and get!) when living here is a thriving downtown setting with _tons_ to do within walking distance. Now that COVID is lifting and restaurants are re-opening, I couldn't recommend this Lowertown location more highly. Second, the building is historic, the architecture is industrial, the setting is modern, and the apartment layouts are varied. I lived on the 7th floor overlooking the park in a platform apartment, and my high cielings, huge windows, and open-concept living area lended itself perfectly to hosting big and small gatherings alike. The parking garage is a little tight but is indoor and heated, unlike any other options in that area (e.g., Rayette or Lowertown Lofts), and the amenities, while not completely 5-star, are well-maintained. Third, the staff is amazing. I can't tell you how many times Joanne, Nick, Dave, Nate, and others have come to my rescue (forgotten keys, package troubles, maintenance, rent/policy questions, etc.). The Cosmo team is super responsive and always willing to help out however they can (subject to the constraints of the Cushman-Wakefield overlords). The Cosmo staff is also works hard to promote social connection--a tough task during COVID--among their residents via hosted get-togethers, advertising for local events, fun pet exposes, and more. Finally, let me say that I have read the negative Google reviews, and I acknoweldge that the living situation isn't *all* sunshine and rainbows. Living in any downtown area comes with its fair share of nonidealities, including some homelessness, crime, noise, traffic, strange neighbors, smelly/icky findings...it's just part of the experience. So, while taking advantage of all the upsides of living in Lowertown, be sure to lock your car, protect your belongings, and keep vigilient :). If you do that, I can confidently say that living at Cosmo is a fantastic St. Paul experience.

    This is by far the best apartment I’ve ever lived in. The staff is extremely friendly and responsive, rent and fees are reasonable ($40/month for my two dogs), super fast maintenance response time (and the longest they have ever been in my apartment was 2 minutes when I had asked them to fix 3 things), massive windows, gorgeous view, original hardwood floors, spacious floor plans (my one bedroom is big enough for two home offices in addition to plenty of space for our living room and bedroom), plenty of storage space, I could go on. The south facing apartments are exceptional with TONS of natural light and somehow the building is placed just right so that I can’t hear any sound from Mears Park or CHS stadium despite being smack dab in the middle of them. The place is extremely dog friendly with just about everyone in the building having a pet it seems and a dog park just one city block away (and a Chuck and Dons very strategically placed for the dogs to get a treat on our way back from the park). But seriously, if you could see my view, you’d understand why I spend all of my free time sitting on my couch and looking out the window.

    I would not rent here if you can avoid it. Money hungry and no compassion or empathy whatsoever. No matter your circumstances or issues in life they will make sure that you pay. If you die…. They will “come after the estate of the resident who is deceased in order to collect money owed”. That’s an actual quote l from one of the people who works there Jo****. If you try to get out of your lease because your diagnosed with a deadly illness and just lost your job….. prepare to pay for it! $2500 cancellation fee + two months of rent + repay any promotional or discounted benefits that you receive. I would highly suggest you live in A shelter before dealing with these people.

    First and foremost they have a great facility. I was a guest here for 5 weeks this summer while I got back on my feet and the neighbors were amazing. And the location was hard to beat. I give credit where it is due. Unfortunately my experience was not all sunshine. TWICE my personal belongs were sifted through while everyone was at work during the day. The first time I went to the office about it they denied it and said that maintenance was done that day and that they probably moved some of my stuff for access. Clothes in my suitcase were in the way? The second time when I talked to them about my laptop being taken out of my bag they said I was just a visitor and "should not expect resident privileges". What does that mean?? I know there are some people who love living here but in my experience it's a toss up which side of the spectrum you'll be on. Now I know I technically never lived here (and I am grateful that I had a roof over my head when I needed one) but if your not desperate then save yourself that gamble.
