If you’ve walked past, or into, the garage this week, you’ll notice that a small area has been cleared and walls have gone up. I confirmed with Patricia at the front desk, and what’s being built is indeed a laundry room.
We’re fairly certain that apartments that have managed to get the high-end washer/dryers installed will retain them, and no doubt they’ll be relegated to the penthouses/apartments on the upper floors. For everyone else (your writers included), you will receive the luxury of being able to launder your own clothes to your own liking without having to deal with a sub-par machine, sending laundry out to get ruined, or running your clothes right there to the corner like everyone else*
No word yet on when the room will be completed and the units will finally be moved in. But we can be hopeful that within the next few weeks/months, The Viridian will actually be a luxury apartment building WITH LAUNDRY SERVICES AVAILABLE.
On the other hand, there’s the added fear that machines will break and management will blame misuse and abuse, similar to the way they treat the other amenities. What do you think? Have your say in the comments below.
*To our lovely friends and neighbors: this is completely tongue-in-cheek. We’re lucky to have a fantastic 24-hour laundry on the corner of our street. It doesn’t fail to make us laugh that we’re forced to use it, even though we were advertised an apartment containing a washer/dryer, moved in under that pretense, and found that we either had machines that didn’t work completely or our machines suddenly disappeared prior to moving in.
