Not a lot of advice but i live in an alpha building which they bought mid lease. They've done nothing but make things worse and increase rent. If you call the maintenance people there's like a 50% chance they'll end up screaming and swearing at you on the phone. It took them 6 months to fix my leaky faucet which is nothing compared to what my neighbors have gone through.

Our neighbors all have a group chat for kind of teaming up to deal with issues that come up like hot water or heat being out (like a twice per month occurrence during winter), their maintenance people leaving doors propped open resulting in packages getting stolen, letting brokers into our units illegally with no notice, etc. It doesn't always result in action but having a team of us to call and nag or give each other heads up about their terrible management has made me feel better. Might be worth setting something like that up if you plan to stick around.
