I love these apartments! The management staff is responsive and easy to work with.I love the newly remodeled apartments, the gym and the atmosphere. Close to everything. I'm here for life.
I absolutely hate living here. It smells awful, the A/C and heat never work and the pipes back up with sewage. Moving out ASAP.
RENTERS BEWARE!!! Two Words BED BUGS!! My wife and had lived there for 2 weeks and we found bed bugs in the halls and in our place! The management said that they would fix the problem; they hired “certified pest” which was awful “Dan” the exterminator missed appointments and only sprayed there was no heat treatment or anything that would actually fix the problem; the spraying actually drove the bed bugs deeper in to the walls and caused it to spread to other floors; the company threatened to evict us if we talked to anyone else about it. My wife was getting bitten left and right so we tried to move what items we could safely and a left the rest. We took pictures and tried to sue but Utah favors landlords in cases like this. Just a warning this cost us thousands in damaged and infested things losses. WE are a good LDS couple that just want to warn others of this horrid apartment complex. FYI a ward member of ours that lived in the Covey apartments had this happen to them too. With a little investigation we found they were owned by the same company. RENTERS BEWARE!!
I currently live there and moving out by the end of this month. When i first moved in, the rent was acceptable given how old and crappy these apartments are. I dont think the apartments have been renovated in the past 50 years. The AC barely cools in the summer because all apartments have the same compressor. To be brief, when i was paying 700/month, this apartment was perfect. But since it was sold to a big money greedy company, they raised the rent and now i would rather live in a GREAT 2 bdr and pay 1000 rather than this crappy apartment for 1000. Dont let them trick you into buying in the "renovated" apartments. they're just as crappy but with painted doors. Also, the parking lot structure failed about 2 months ago and they just barely started working on it. there are not less than 50 cars that park in this building and only parking spaces for 20 cars. You can never find parking. The management's solution was to tell us to park a block away. Also, if you park anywhere on the property that they dont like, they WILL NOT hesitate to tow you, even though they could just come ask you to move your car. Also, dont even get me started on the maintenance crew. The heater at my apartment was making a loud noise so i asked them to come check it out. We scheduled the maintenance a few days after we talked and it took 2 weeks for it to get fixed. They tell you they're coming today and never show up without even calling you so you're left waiting all day for nothing. Seriously, this place is not the place you want to live in, not even in the renovated apartments. I see how they're "renovating" the apartments and believe me they are not doing anything. they just painted the doors and changed the door handles and raised the rent 200 in comparison with the nonrenovated apartment.
I moved in with my boyfriend in 2013. We were told we could park anywhere, even after we offered to pay extra to have a reserved spot. So we did so. Then, they closed down more than half of the parking lot because of "parking structure issues", yet they have done nothing about it for weeks. There are 15 floors, and 8 units per floor, so you can imagine how little parking is available. One day, we parked in a spot that was apparently reserved (even though we weren't given this benefit), and the maintenance man gave the tenant our apartment number and allowed him to pound angrily on our door and threaten to tow us. We explained the mistake, but this should have never happened, and the staff is to blame. We were also not provided with a key to our unit, and were forced to track down the previous tenant (whom we did not know) in order to be granted entrance to our home, or we had the option to pay an additional fee for keys. Not only this, but the elevators have broken down repeatedly, and we live on a high floor, so going up and down the stairs is no small feat. Currently, only one elevator is operating, so it now takes 10 min to leave the building. This is incredibly inconvenient for our disabled tenants, as well, and I have seen elderly women struggling up the stairs with their canes and bags multiple times. Our dishwasher has broken down repeatedly, and every time it takes maintenance days to get to it. The entire building is under renovations. When they began renovations on our floor, they changed the locks to our apartment with no notice, and closed the office before we could get home. Luckily, our neighbor was able to give us a heads up, and we were not locked out of our unit for the night. The lobby is currently under renovations, so the mail room has been moved downstairs. The boxes were never bolted to the walls, and nearly killed the mail lady while she attempted to do her job two months ago. They remain unbolted. The ground floor containing the laundromat and the gym was stripped and closed for renovations for 3 months before any work was done on them. So we paid for a laundromat and gym we had no access to for months. The new laundry room has raised the prices, and no longer has a coin machine. Now, that the floor is finally "renovated" (still looks terrible), we have no gym, even though this is in our lease agreement, and we are still paying for it. We have been treated like absolute garbage by the staff because we are alternative looking and have no children, even though we pay our rent on time, have had no complaints from our neighbors (other than the parking debacle). The maintenance man is a creep, always asking personal and inappropriate questions. This has been brought to the manager's attention, she has done nothing. The manager is a gossip, and likes to pump her tenants for information on each other, but not for info a landlord needs. More about folks personal lives and lifestyles. And, on top of all of this, they are raising the rent, even on non-renovated units from $860 for a two bedroom to $1000. They are not worth that, even renovated. These are cheap apartments from the 1970's, not terrible, but definitely not fantastic. Needless to say, we are moving.
