One tenant, who asked to remain anonymous, claims the elevators have not been working properly for months. The healthier tenants preferred to take the stairs in fear of the elevators breaking down. This does create a problem for those that move in and out of the building or trying to carry heavy items up and down.
The building has also been issued several building code violations from the City of DeKalb. According to the City of DeKalb staff, some of the code violations have been addressed, others have not.
