Apartment & Building Maintenance
It is important that tenants report all maintenance requests promptly. Submitting requests through our website will yield the fastest response; however maintenance requests can also be submitted through the property management office by calling (617) 236-5687.

General Maintenance Reminders:
  • Please do not leave trash or recyclables in the hallways or common areas. A fine will be charged for trash or boxes left anywhere other than the designated trash or recycling areas.
  • Cleanliness and neatness of individual units and common areas help maintain a pest-free residence.
  • Be cautious regarding items you dispose of in your toilet. Our plumbing systems are not equipped to handle anything other than toilet paper and human waste. Disposal of sanitary napkins, moist towelettes, etc., down the toilet may result in clogged toilets, which then overflow and can damage your bathroom and potentially the unit below. If water does get on the floor, put towels down immediately to prevent damage.
