Montclair is a pretty good deal overall. It has been newly renovated so the many units have all-new appliances and hardwood floors. It’s really close to school (less than 10-minute walk and close to the entrance of the skybridge when it’s cold). The lobby and common areas are also newly renovated, cozy, and useful for hosting events. There’s a really nice rooftop terrace, study lounge, conference room, and game room and we have a gym. The management and staff are really friendly and Montclair often hosts community events for residents and friends! Many other residents work or go to school at WashU so that’s pretty cool. Some of the downsides include basement laundry and it’s maybe a bit more expensive than some other places but definitely not the most expensive. I like living here overall!
