Going on my third year living at the Blackbird, so I would say I love it! I looked at all the buildings in the area (Lockwood, Beckerts, Rushmore, etc.) and Blackbird overall stood out from the rest. Highlights include: The Roost right downstairs w/t...

These 1 star reviews are such bull****. People want to know what it’s like to actually live there, not about your hassles and annoyance at the move in process! So I’ve lived here a year and management has been normal and nice without much turnove...

AVOID dealing with leasing & management whatsoever. I got scammed out of $500. I applied for an apartment and was told that the application fee was $50, and $500 for a move-in fee to use their amenities. Fine. I got accepted for the apartment. I hadn...

Update: I would not live at another May Riegler property. The management company for Blackbird is unresponsive and untrustworthy. The Lockwood and Beckert’s Park are much more reliable options in the same area. The Lockwood is a little pricier but ...
