These Apartments are uncared for. Once you are in and have a problem nothing ever gets taken care of. Buildings are not clean, Laundry rooms are left unclean. They are in the process of selling the property so some stuff gets cleaned up but still not t the best place for your money. Maintenance tries to keep things up but they are told no all the time because there is no money to fix it. They try but run into a brick wall with the Manager. They make things look good on the outside but the building is falling apart internally. For your money there are a lot nicer places.
I lived here for a year and a half until spring 2011. My experience had upsides and downsides. On the upside, these are very nice apartment units. The view was nice, the landscaping was generally nice, and the driveways and lots were always plowed in the wintertime right after every snow. On the downside, the walls were relatively thin, so I could often hear my upstairs neighbor walking around, vaccuuming, or watching TV. Apparently, he or she could hear me too, since I once got notified of a noise complaint after playing music at what I thought was a reasonable level. Investing in some good headphones seemed to fix that problem. Another downside was the maintenance staff. While they were great at getting the parking lots plowed, that's pretty much where it ended. The recycling dumpsters were often overflowing, and despite numerous comments to management, the situation never improved. The community within the complex was a lot different than I'd experienced other apartment complexes I've lived in. There are a number of colleges and schools in the area, and the tone of the apartment culture reflected that. I suppose that's either desirable or not, depending who you are. Overall, my experience was hardly terrible, all things considered. Definitely tolerable, especially given the convenience of being right off I-35E and I-494.
