I moved into my apartment at the Urbanite in July 2020, and I'm extremely happy that I chose to live here. Located in a great area of the East Side (in Milwaukee), the Urbanite building is new and very secure, and – in addition to all of the other security features of the building – features a secure package delivery/pick-up room that requires a key fob to gain access. The Urbanite staff and New Land Enterprises have worked very hard to maintain a safe AND healthy environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Urbanite offers many amenities, such as the beautiful community room and a great gym (masks required for both). Additionally, a masseuse runs her business out of the Urbanite, and the residents receive discounts for most of the services that she provides. The maintenance staff is excellent and efficient – most maintenance requests that are submitted during the week (Monday – Friday) are addressed within 24 hours. Maintenance not only addresses issues quickly, but they also fix any issues correctly the first time.
Most importantly, the property managers/staff for the Urbanite (and New Land Enterprises) genuinely care about the residents – they treat the residents like people and not just as walking rent checks. The Urbanite property managers/staff are very kind and friendly, and they always make time to chat with residents who stop by the office. When I was looking for an apartment, the Urbanite staff took the time to work with me to find an apartment that I could envision living in without paying astronomically-high rent. Due to the great location of the Urbanite, the amenities, and the newness of the building/apartments, the rent is a little bit higher that what I’ve paid in the past. That said, New Land Enterprises often offers rent specials that significantly reduce monthly rent. The Urbanite staff go above and beyond when working with prospective residents to help them find their future home. The Urbanite is very pet friendly, and the staff keep a large bowl filled with dog treats in the main office.
