As we noted in passing last week, Citiapartments stopped using the CitiApartments name on their site, much to the confusion of Deputy City Atty Yvonne Mere, who’s on the city’s case against Citi. She told us “One of the things they have asserted is that they’re not a ‘property management company,’ but are instead a branding agency.”
From Appeal reader Daniel:
I just tried calling the CitiApartments office and they answered the phone as “First Apartments.” Then I googled FirstApartments and came upon this. Do they think changing their name is going to fix everything?
And you thought CitiApartments didn’t do maintenance!
We’ve put some calls into Mere to see if this name change has any relationship to the City’s suit against CitiApartments, and will update when you hear more.
