I've lived here for almost seven years now and it's been great! The staff and maintenance team is very friendly and responsive, occasionally they offer a quick social with coffee and doughnuts or a pool party when the pool opens each summer. The only challenges I've had is with poor neighbors not picking up after their pets (there's a hefty fine for not doing so... and I will report you!), and of course parking-- guests need to park a block away sometimes. Overall, I moved here to be in the heart of downtown and it hasn't disappointed. One block North you have Poplar Street Pub, Red Rock Brewing Company, Lumpy's Downtown, and The Hotel. To the East you have PF Chang's, Squatter's, and Gracie's. And, in the summer you have $5 concerts and the Farmer's Market across the street in Pioneer Park! Greek Festival in September! What's not to like?!
I have lived at Palladio since May 2014 with my fiance. The staff and maintenance have always been kind and helpful. Both of us love the location being conveniently in walking distance of everything down town and most of all we feel safe with the secured pool and locked entrances.
I've lived at Palladio less than a year and I am quite content here. The office staff is helpful and friendly. The maintenance crew is quick to come to my rescue, if I have a problem. The lobby,the hallways and grounds are kept very clean. The dog run is a plus for dog owners and the gym and pool are great assets for city living. The parking can be a challenge at times and you will get towed if you don't have Palladio sticker. My major gripe is no sidewalk from the apartments to 200 West and the noisy water heater. Great Location!
At first I really liked the Palladio, I thought it was a little expensive, but not too bad for the area. Over the months though the true colors of this place started to show. First of all the cockroaches, I lived on the first floor close to an entrance so this could have attributed to why I had so many cockroaches, regardless it was disgusting. Then there's the mold. I'm not sure what they did to conceal it when I was shown the apartment, but it started to emerge just a couple weeks after I moved in. Finally the noise, and not the city noise which is actually not bad at all, the walls are thick enough to block most of the hustle and bustle out. The noise I am talking about is the neighbors, very thin walls. As far as the management is concerned they are usually pretty helpful and friendly, although make sure you read your lease agreement in depth it can save you money from fee's! Maintenance is really helpful as well, they are SUPER friendly and respond in a reasonably timely manner and seem to know what they are doing. Maintenance also seems very trustworthy which is important if you agree to let them enter your apartment when you are not home. Some things I think others should be aware of that doesn't really apply to The Palladio itself is for one the parking, the parking is horrible. All of the spaces inside of the property are for tenants ONLY, make sure your guests know this or they WILL be towed. Also their are assigned spots available for a price, an expensive price. Then there is the bums, they like to use the parking garage to the south of The Palladio and the surrounding shrubbery as refuge and a place to party with their bum friends so dont leave anything you care about on your porch (if your on the first floor) and be sure to lock the outer doors because vagrants will come in the building.
I lived here for over a year, and for the majority of that year it was great. Good location, fair price, and attentive staff. Management changed a few months ago, and with that came billing issues and an attitude from management that quickly soured the experience, including a policy where you could no longer receive packages to your own unit (they had to go to work or to a friend's house). When it came time for me to move out, they found every way possible to nickle and dime me out of the refundable $200 portion of the security deposit, along with demanding an additional $32 on top of that. -$20 to change the drip pans on the stove (normal use) -$85 to "patch" a few nail holes where pictures were hung And the rest was split between carpet cleaning and other cleaning fees. Careful living here, and make sure to record a walk through of your unit before moving in if you do.
