Don't let the smooth taste FOOL YOU. The amenities will wear off. The rent goes higher & higher. Forget about your deposit with STRONG ARMED cleaning invoices to absorb your money. "This truly represents a turning point in the apartment market. With construction outpacing demand, the national vacancy rate should slowly drift higher over the coming years," said Ryan Severino, senior economist and director of research at Reis. Vacancies are rising, but rents are also still rising at a robust pace, up 4.6 percent annually. This is well ahead of core inflation and the strongest performance for rents since 2007, before the recession.
The leasing office isn't on top of things. Their focus is on getting new tenants and they don't keep up with existing tenants daily needs. Case in point: In any time, there will be one to three equipments in the fitness center that are out-of-order, and they stay like that for weeks. They let the trash accumulates in the trash cans around the property for days. It takes them days to respond to service requests. I would not recommend the place as is.
Great leasing office. The amenities are over the top amazing with a huge theatre room, roof top pool and beautiful clubhouse and courtyards. I've lived here for 4 months with my pet and have had a great experience ! Super dog friendly and always clean. Also has super huge dog run. And the gym is all brand new and perfect with a free trainer several times a week. You won't find anything like this place!!! Also there are often events for the residence to get to know each other and have fun!!!
I have been living here a little over a year and overall I love this place. The bathrooms are covered in luxurious travertine tile and the high ceilings in my unit make my place look much bigger than it is. The staff here are friendly and the recent management change is more responsive to tenant requests and also very helpful. Even during this holiday season when things are busy, the leasing office was willing to help with my Christmas package deliveries despite being on their own personal lunch breaks. Alice and Andre are very friendly and residents here seem to socialize a lot with them. Lately there are a lot of events that bring the residents together and they were nicely done. This community however, is not perfect just like any of the other communities that I have lived in before. I live near the courtyard and the echo can be quite bothersome when residents host their parties in the club room and especially when there's alcohol. Recently, there was an incident around 10 at night when the DJ and guests were being so loud that the management had to step in. There was a lot of yelling and shouting from the drunk guests but in the end I think they were asked to leave. Where's security when you need them? I hope the management will consider banning alcohol because things are getting out of hand lately. Sadly, some people just can't handle their alcohol. Unsurprisingly, the resident parking garage has a lot of expensive cars and that's to be expected from this demographic who can afford the high rent. However, people here have a tendency to drive pretty fast in the underground garage and I hope they will either install speed bumps and/or post speed limit signs. You see more German marques than other imports and the "spirited" way they are being driven here definitely seems to reflect that. Overall, the management does a great job despite having to deal with some noisy people partying every now and then. Watch out for the drivers who think the garage is the autobahn.
The place is fantastic, and I say that after over 11 months living here in a 1/1 and getting ready to transfer over to a 2/2. The building is very elegant, the amenities are superb including the heated rooftop pool with views of Angel Stadium, Disney (and it's nightly fireworks in the distance), and the surrounding mountains and area, and of course the game room, fireplace, and theater room, etc., etc... The units themselves are decked out really well with nice stainless steel Maytag appliances (even a double oven), black granite counter tops, a ceiling fan AND light in bedroom (big deal for me), washer/dryer of course, light dimmers, and a huge bathtub/shower. Oh the tile and wood floors aren't a bummer either. The whole building is very well maintained and attractive inside and out. Location is really nice too from being by the baseball stadium and near the Honda Center to many important highways right around the corner (5, 57, 55, etc.) to easy access to the Amtrak (a 2-3 min walk) to the proximity to Disney and DT Disney or the Block in Orange mall. Wondering about the leasing team and their service? I sincerely think they are an enormous positive here and are very helpful and professional. They have shown utmost kindness since day 1. Kelsey, Matthew, Michelle, Blake (previously), and Andre now always look to help and be thorough. Love 'em and the complex here. You definitely get a lot for what you pay for.
