I lived in the Abode Apartments for six months and overall was very impressed with the building. In particular, the security (24/7 concierge, swipe card required to access your apartment floor) and amenities (indoor lap pool and gym) were most appealing.
The building was exceptionally well maintained - the foyer consistently immaculate and the common area on each apartment floor (as you exited the elevator) fitted out with plush carpet and a stylish indoor plant.
Each level also has a garbage chute for convenience.
The apartment is in a great location, a few hundred metres from St Leonards train station and a stone's throw from the cafes and restaurants of Crows Nest. Given the building is on the Pacific Highway, it's easy to hail a cab at any time of the day or night.
