DO NOT LIVE HERE! Despite the increases in raising our rent twice within the year, we had initially felt the office staff were friendly and supportive. Then my wife and I, with our 8 month old baby experienced a break in and theft. Very concerned about this activity within my complex, I asked Lydia, the complex manager, what they were doing to raise awareness to the other residents. She said they would put some security tips in the monthly flyer. Security tips! Hello, the dead bolt on my door was busted through and my belongings were taken. What if my wife and baby were home. Wouldn't you want to inform people for their safety and awareness, Immediately! Maybe ask residents and grounds crew, immediately, if they had seen any strangers or suspicious activity Tuesday between hours of 10AM-4PM, the time of the break-in. Lydia informed me that they would not want to create alarm for the residents. I explained I thought I lived in a secured apartment. For now rent that has climbed to $2600/month-1 bedroom, you would think so. Lydia informed me, that "I should know that no place is secured". That if I had a home it wouldn't be secure either and asked me how I think it would be different. I stated that first of all, neighbors would communicate suspicious activity, especially in the event of a burglary. Neighbors would WANT to "create alarm" so others could prepare accordingly or take measures of prevention, like back-up their pictures of their newborn baby, recent files, or install better hardware on their doors instead of the cheap easily busted dead bolts currently in use, and even security videos if needed. Lydia then informed me that I should have known to back up my pictures that is common knowledge. Great, thanks for that Security Tip! Evidently they are good at those! Lydia also stated that she had meetings that I did not attend, in fact no one attended and that they had put flyers out. Neither my wife or I were aware of these. When I asked if I could see one of the flyers, Lydia said no I couldn't see one but they would email it to me. This conversation happened after going to the office to offer a professional courtesy to inform them I would be posting a negative review of their lack of action taken in this incident. As I voiced my frustration and this dialogue occurred Lydia stated I was threatening in my tone. I apologized and closed the conversation. As i was leaving through the door she stated, "and don't come in here threatening me with yelp". Unfortunately, like me, not all residents read yelp reviews. Lesson learned. My wife and I have given our notice. We will live in a hotel before we continue living here.
Nice place on the surface, but did not enjoy our stay. - We were the first people to move into a newly renovated unit. We both work long hours and I spent most of the nights at my girlfriend's place. Yet, somehow the place pretty much fell apart (worn kitchen floor, started to bubble up, sink fixtures become loose, etc.) - Management is slow. When we moved in, they promised covered parking for my roommate and me. We had a year lease and they made 0 progress on it, but told us "about a month" every time we inquired. Additionally, the (contracted) facilities folks scratched my car with their leaf blower and they were useless in resolving the issue. We were also surprised by all the cleaning fees at the end, though we both cleaned the place top to bottom (and, as I mentioned, barely lived in it). - BEWARE THE CROWS. They never shut up, they poop everywhere (and the bill for the hot water they use to clean the parking lot every day is shared amongst residents), and ruined the clear coat on my car.
It is has a wonderful kitchen!!! Happy New Year
While living in the apartment, we had issues with the staples coming up through the flooring, the dishwasher falling off the wall, the dryer vents being consistently clogged and the washer/dryer unit falling through the floor. We knew we would be moving at the end of the year so we tried to deal with our issues professionally. Unfortunately at move-out, we were charged for cleaning the spotless apartment, painting over the patched nail holes, and doing a pet enzyme that had just been done. The full experience was difficult with a very disappointing conclusion. DO NOT RENT, its just not worth the difficulties.
Lived here for little over a year and overall not satisfied. The complex has a nice feel with all the vegetation and the maintenance staff is very good. However the complex is pretty old and it shows in the layout of the units. There is a huge crow problem. I haven't experienced anything like it before. They are extremely noisy as they wake up at 5:30 AM and roost around dusk. Make sure to walk briskly to your apartment to avoid being bombed by the crows, yes it's happened to everyone here as well as some of my guests. Also be prepared to wash your car once a week as these crows also will defecate all over them, which is extremely bad for your paint. Some parking spots are worst than others, however there have been times where I get in the morning and I can't see out my front windshield. Also there is insect problems and I had to deal with roach problem. I would have to replace my roach traps at least once a month as they would fill up. There are also the more than occasional spider and earwig but those aren't that bad. Overall I DON'T recommend this place and only lived here as it was close to work.
