From Josh, Resident at Hamilton Square
My wife and I closed on our HSQ place in December, 2010. We actually bought two units, and had them combined into one, a process that took 3 months (which is actually pretty quick, given the amount of construction required).
During this period, we got to know the whole team well — Eric and Paul Silverman, Sawyer, Matt, Mike, Alex, John, Mary Beth — and overall our experience has been pretty amazing. There was a strong feeling of good faith all the way through the process, starting with sales, through contract negotiation, buildout, closing, and post closing. To a person, the HSQ team has been great to work with.
The location and the building itself are hard to beat. We have two small kids and the amount of stuff for them here is impressive — Hamilton Park is gorgeous and like a giant back yard, we have a pool in our building (though Hamilton Health and Fitness), as well as a great wine store (important if you have two small kids), a food co-op, a dance studio, and a pharmacy. Tribeca Pediatrics will be here within 45 days, and our daughter will be attending the Montessori school across the street beginning in September – literally a two minute walk. Having previously lived in Paulus Hook for six years, there is no comparison in terms of convenience.
