Scuffed walls, unfinished balconies and sloppy tile work are just some of the signs these spaces aren’t yet complete.

“They have the worst communication with us, like last night at 9:08 p.m. they told us to sign up for KUB and it was due tomorrow. So we had to sign up,” said Meg Tucker, a resident at The Standard.

“They still don’t have a projected move in date for my floor. It says four days after the seventh floor which is supposed to be next week.”
