If I knew about the roaches, the low maintenance of the building, the violence, and the God awful smells throughout the building; I woulnt of moved into this dump. I shouldn't have to be aware of and be freaking out when I walk into my apartment and see roaches everywhere. I shouldnt be afraid that a roach is going to get in certain food if I leave it on the counter just to run to the bathroom or one going to be on me when I'm asleep or be somewhere I step. Pest control so call come and spray but thats a bunch of hog wash. The spraying isnt working because it seems like it cause them to come out more. They say the higher up you live, the less likely you will see the roaches. It shouldnt be that way if I'm paying rent here like everyone else. The disgusting restuarants downstairs causes most of the problem in terms of roaches and awful smells on the first floor. They are constantly throwing out food in the so call dumpsters in back but thats where they manifest at. I wouldn't dare eat at those places because I doubt it actually been clean thoroughly down there. The last couple of months there have been shooting and also I should awaken at 1,2, or 5 in the morning with someone fighting in the hallways or outside drunk being obnoxious. They have security guards but they generally don't have a purpose or they aren't convincing whatsoever. People can walk in and out as they please because they generally don't care about the people in the building. I've seen how they want to kick you out if you dont pay the rent but they dont want fix the building, actually do something about the roaches or the violence. When you bring it up to the people in the front desk; they really don't care. But if I knew all these problems would be at the Darlington, I would never signed my name on the lease.
Been living here for less than 2months and tbh you get what you pay for! CONS: Management Suck Ass! The leasing agents isn't the best (Except Keshia and Veronica they're pretty awesome!) ....Elevators is disgusting, slow as hell with Graffiti and Trash everywhere with constant breakdowns & light outages.. The building itself (including apartments) smells like Cigarettes and Mold due to reckless and careless residents.. Every apartment has a complimentary set of roaches behind each stove (free of charge)! Very Often,You will be without water for at least 8hrs for maintenance! Security there is worthless like literally they're only good for telling you where not to park and nothing else! Occasionally, they will leave packages at your door in which your residents WILL STEAL instead of holding them at the concierge desk like they suppose to until pickup AND THE BIGGEST CON IS BE AWARE THAT IT IS ALOT OF THEFT AND CAR BREAK INS THAT IS HAPPENING IN THE RESIDENT PARKING (Behind the building)! PROS: the location is beautiful- KEY WORD LOCATION. The convience of having your utilities included in rent and also The conveince of having a convient store (ITS HIGH AS HELL BUT IS CONVIENT), barber and eateries available downstairs (be mindful that that complimentary set of roaches applies to the above to) and its Marta Accessible! WORD TO MANAGEMENT: Invest in 12hr-24hr Maintance to upkeep the cleanliness of building both inside and out. Invest into more advance security such as Survaliance Cameras and Monitors and Certified Security instead of those lazy flashlight parking attendants in security shirts and fake badges you have now! PLEASE TAKE THIS INTO CONSIDERATION AND OTHER REVIEWS SUCH AS THIS IF YOUR IN THE SEARCH OF A NEW APARTMENT!

I never made it past the application process. After my encounter with the staff, I decided to withdraw my application. After much runaround, the ladies don't know the status of my application or my $125. The staff is rude and ignorant acting, for absolutely no reason. The sad part is, the apartments don't even look bad. These ladies will cost their corporate office major losses if this continues.
I Absolutely love it ! The staff was so friendly and welcoming , my move in was simple and quick. Veronica the leasing consultant made sure that everything went smoothly and got back to me quick with all my questions.
