Lived here for 13 years, we hit a rough patch and our lease was non-renewed. We got past that and decided to move. We were told by various members of the management staff that it would be ok if we moved before our lease end date with no penalties. We moved and then we received a bill for an obscene amount for future rent, cleaning, carpet and repairs and this is after we spent 24hrs cleaning the apt and priming the one wall we painted and after we did a thorough walk thru with the maintenance supervisor Juan Carlos and a staff member and after we were told by Joanie that no charges would be incurred. I loved this community but in the past few years management had become unbearable and increasingly dishonest. At the time we moved more than 22 people moved in a 30day period (I was amazed by the moving trucks and empty apts). The apartment is fine/average but the staff with 2 exception of Ferdinand and Sarah are very deceitful and I feel very disrespected by the onslaught of lies. Clearly they want to raise the rents higher than what some of the long term residents pay and it isn't conducive to the greed they see in 2014. They also have renamed themselves as a part of "Downtown Columbia" (they are not according to a county map) when the impending revitalization project of "Downtown Columbia" began. If greed and deceit is on your list of amenities then this is the place for you. We now live in a 1250sq ft apt with fireplace, flat screen (included), 2 master bedrooms, 2 master bathroom for less money, in a quieter neighbourhood in Columbia. BTW- There is a guy that dumpster dives for mail, beware, he's been a resident there for 15years plus some other characters and traffic hell from the Merriweather during concert season along with LOTS of concert noise and burglaries (see police dept for incident dates). Gotta love apartment living *sarcasm* I give this community 1 star aka Hated it because of everything they've become not for what they once were!
Lived there four years. Great place with amenities, tree lined streets. Units are a bit small for my taste. Location makes up for the lack of space i.e. Mall, Merriweather and Main roadways. Storage units offered on site for only $50 / month. Neighbors include professionals, families and HCC students. Pretty good mix. Had to move because I bought a HOUSE. :) Otherwise, I'd still be living there.
We love that community , office stuff are great . Service request very fast !
