The President is a wonderful building on Lindell Blvd. It is connected to the Park Royal apartment building and both are run by the same leasing company. The President was built in the late 1920s and has beautiful apartments with fancy plaster detailing on the walls, cool black and white tiling in the kitchens, and hardwood floors. Even though the apartments are older, they are very well maintained. The apartments are very spacious and come with lots of storage. There is parking available in the building, but there is a long waitlist, so tenants that don’t get a parking spot in the building get parking at the Bank of America next door. The leasing office and maintenance staff are very nice and responsive. Apartments come in efficiency, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and two-bedroom with den. The President is about a 15-minute walk from school and three minutes from Whole Foods. Utilities are included in the rent but parking and internet are extra, and laundry is coin-operated on the first floor.
