Update to original review. The crime had been an issue that plagued this neighborhood pretty bad, but that's been a recurring theme for all of midtown. Camden has enhanced lighting in the community, installed different measures to prevent just anybody from walking around the property, and has aggressively policed issues that had previously gone ignored. If you're a light sleeper and shopping for units, remember - if it's street-facing there is a nightclub that lets out late, you're definitely going to be awakened by obnoxious people at 3am. But that's the inconvenience of living conveniently close to everything in Atlanta.
Update on 10/12/15: Just filed my 3rd noise complaint for neighbors playing music so loud my walls and floors are vibrating. I've been to the office, called, and now I'm emailing to have documentation because NOTHING is being done about it. I've multiple times been stuck with a headache while at home because there is a constant thudding sound filling my apartment. I chose this apartment because typically Camden has been a great property management company in the past for me, however, this is the worst Camden property I've experienced. The location is great, very central, however, the buildings are not well insulated and the walls are paper thin, so you hear traffic all day and night long no matter where you are at in the building on top of hearing your neighbors. When I first move into my unit, the leasing representative, John, did a walk through of my apartment and noted a number of things still needed to be fixed after I moved in. I had to a month later submit separate maintenance requests because he never placed them for me as he claimed, one of which was a smoke detector missing from my apartment. The one item that was fix was a caulking in my tub that maintenance had worked on the day before I moved in. I was told they needed to complete a follow up in 2 days and not to use the shower for 2 day;the next morning I was startled awake to hearing noises in my bathroom as the maintenance person just walked right into my unit without calling or knocking when I hadn't been expecting maintenance for another day. The office staff generally doesn't know what they're talking about when you ask them for anything, and the worst is John, who talks to everyone like a used car salesman and condescendingly and repeats himself and talks in circles to not give you a worthy answer. I'm moving to another Camden location, and the management was unwilling to even work with me by 2 days on the transfer payment after I'd just paid my rent and discussed all of the reasons I was leaving their location for another Camden. Parking is horrendous here, half the time the gate to enter the parking garage off Argonne ave is closed or broken. I was also informed they are working on implementing valet garbage, which would be a required additional payment each month with your rent, they won't even be offering the option for it to residents.
Longtime Camden resident, as I've previously lived in Alpharetta and Buckhead communities, as well as Doral in south Florida. This location lives up to the Camden standard. Nice amenities, great location and warm staff make for a great combination. I love this particular location, as it reminds me of all the accessibility and great things that NYC has to offer.... just a lot cleaner and less congested. Very happy resident.
Tim Meek is correct. Any positive reviews are lies written by staff. This used to be a great place to live until Camden shuffled employees and left this place with no management, no security, and a hard-working but shamefully understaffed maintenance crew. Eventually they hired new property managers, but they're actually worse than having nobody.
Crime is a serious issue. Apartment and car break-ins, stolen packages, stolen mail, none of what you expect from a Camden property. The gates are always broken, the hallways are filthy and management doesn't care to address the major problems, especially concerning security. Also, if you're lucky enough to face North Ave you will hear every single car, truck or motorcycle that goes by on top of all of the drunks leaving the neighboring club at night.
