I lived here for 5 months during training. the leasing office was really helpful, the gym facilities were small but always clean, and everything was as expected. My only problem is the lack of community activities that you find at many other apartment complexes in the city
We moved here about a month ago and we love the place! After reading some of the reviews I was a little skeptical but none of these things have panned out to be true. The office staff is friendly, the courtyard is nice for pet owners to take their pets out, my apartment was ready when they said it would be, parking hasn't been a problem, and having the option to pay rent online is a plus. The fitness center is nice and the location is great. We are always walking to restaurants, bars, and shops. It is in the middle of the city and, just like any other city, if you are careful and aware of your surroundings you will be fine.
Location is good but the walls and floors are poorly made, too thin and noise leaks through. However, the staff makes an effort to be helpful.
I lived here for a year and just moved out. I can honestly say, the location is the best part. The building just changed ownership without notice and that caused some complications regarding paying rent and logistical issues. However, I'd say the new staff is better and more willing to help you with any problems you are having. There are a few significant factors to consider before moving in any time soon. I lived in building 1, on the Ponce-side. There is construction going on across the street and will be for some time (maybe the better part of 2014) and that naturally comes with traffic congestion. Additionally, there were multiple times that construction continued 24 hours a day. I talked to the leasing office, who said it was my problem, basically. I then tried talking to the construction company; no luck. Then the city of Atlanta who ultimately said, 'call the cops after 9pm.' The problem with that is the company has cop escorts who waive off any patrols reporting to your call. Moot point, so just know that construction in the area could affect your life. On that note, building 1 just had some major pipes burst that caused significant water damage to several apartments. Crews have been there 24/7 cleaning out damaged walls, floors, and ceilings with blowers going all the time. This is temporary and should minimize molding issues, but this is Georgia where humidity will be 100% most of the summer. Now that damage is done. I doubt the likelihood of it being a complete repair. I think I had 3 different tenants living above me during my tenure at Alexander on Ponce. I can say this with confidence because of the noticeable changes in foot patterns over time. It's not that I enjoy noticing these things, but the floors and walls are a little thin. I could lay in bed and hear what my neighbor was watching on tv. I actually went over just to check if he had it abnormally loud, but I couldn't say I played my tv any lower. Just a consideration, and wasn't a deal-breaker for me. In fact, everyone who lives there is particularly friendly and accommodating in that area if you just ask. My last con is nothing to do with the building, per se. But the USPS carrier on that route is an elderly man who isn't the fastest at his job. I had a package tracked to being loaded on his truck and sent out for delivery where it sat for 3 days. I called the post office twice to check into it and they confirmed that it did go out. So if you're having something delivered, I recommend UPS or FedEx. Again, the place is perfect if you enjoy the Midtown life at a reasonable rate (for Midtown), and like being close to public transit. There's plenty to do nearby and you're basically in the middle of the city. I could make it anywhere I needed to be in 15 minutes by train, car, or foot. Just consider that living here will be somewhat unpleasant until construction is complete.
Do anyone know how Big God Is? God is so Big until he can be in all places at the same time. I should know. God showed up for my sister in a 911 situation were she was forced to seek a place to call home ASAP. How about my son saw me google different apartments and making phone calls only to hung up each time to search for another apartment for my sister to see what was available? While the search was going on my son said, mom google in our last name which is Alexander and see what you get. Alexander on Ponce popped up. I placed the call to Alexander on Ponce and my sister received instant Help. WOW! God works in mysterious ways. The staff were simply The Best. Justin, Jennifer, Mark, Jamila, Holver, Natasha, Gilmer and Synethia should have a standing ovation for a Job Well Done. Peace to an Amazing Staff
