I have lived here almost 2 years and I am renewing next month. I moved from Lawrenceville to get closer to my job, and this place won hand's down! I love the pool parties every summer because it is honestly the best pool I have ever been to in Atlanta. I got breakfast handed to me in my car as I was leaving in the morning a couple of weeks ago which was such a treat because I was late for work anyway that day. (Those poor people stood out there and froze to make sure we were happy on that Friday). They do a lot of resident get-togethers which is so much fun. The office people know my by name, and the maintenance guys are super polite and get everything fixed quickly.
Walls and floors are extremely thin. I can constantly hear my next door neighbors' TV humming and the neighbors above me get busy (shudders). Nice looking place, but made with cheap materials. Amenities are okay, but lacking for "luxury". Price is okay if you can find a deal. I probably won't renew my lease unless I can get a better deal and move to a top level floor.
Looks good on the surface and to the naked eye, but if you really look into the nooks and crannies you will see this property is not very well maintained. There has been reports of HOME INTRUSIONS from residents since I been here in April of this year. It is tucked away in a corporate area so it seems quiet but don't be fooled do your DUE DILIGENCE. The turnover for management and staff is high here. I heard from one of the staff members that all of Gables properties was for sale for about 4 billion dollars, and I can tell. BEWARE of any place that offer a $400 referral service to residents, and $100 gift card upon moving in. I wouldn't refer my worst enemy here for the amount of money they are selling the property for. I was unaware of the 30 day money back guarantee, or maybe that is new. I would have to pursue them in court to break my lease now, and trust me I could. BUG INFESTATION: I have found them in the vents of the microwave, cabinets (in my dishes as well), coming out of drains, in the windows, HVAC closet, bedroom closets, bathtub etc. I am talking about centipedes, spiders, flying cockroaches, water bugs, nets, beetle looking bugs, and others I can't even classify. PROPERTY MANAGEMENT: The exterior of the building is pretty dirty and has SPIDER webs everywhere. It looks like it hasn't been pressure washed EVER. The paint is RUSTING, and the caulking and paint is cracking in several places. The hallways are dirty and always have TRASH lying around. I found excessive DIRT and GRIME in the window seals, under the washer/dryer, and on top of the cabinets.
It's nice. Floors and walls are a little thin but not too bad. It is pricey for where it is though.
I have lived here for 2yrs its just ok they could step the amunities up a bit and there sercurity team needs to be more visible and the rent is very high but yes the units are very nice but not worth the cost.
