WARNING!! STAY AWAY, NEW FLASH, APARTMENT HUNT ELSEWHERE you're better off. moved here in 2010 wasnt so bad then... but the past few years its just HORRIBLE...Many things are wrong, but my main CONCERN IS PARKING building 6603... HAD to Quit my part time second shift job because of getting off at 11pm and by the time I get home, there are NO PARKS. One night I rode around in the rain for more than an hour, looking for a park and waiting for someone to leave just so I can get a park. Now AIN'T that some B S.. Also there was a few times I came home from second shift job rode around waiting for a park until I got tired of riding so I parked in front of the laundry building because I am tired and ready to go to bed, but I was praying my car would not get towed away. I should not have to encounter this after paying rent to where Ilive. All Those people do not live out here, some are over night visitors taking up parking from paying tennants and some probably late night BC.Just las night came home around 9pm after going over to my son and daughter in law house to comfort and give support of my deceased grandson, after getting home there were no Parks .. I was S..O..L.. I called security he stated The Lakes Is a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, it do not matter that some one lives out here , ITs still a FIRST COME FIRST serve, and I should drive across the street to LAKE HILL to see if there is a PARK out there, BULLSHIT, leave my car and walk home after just paying rent a week ago. I have talk to the rental office several times about the parking problem and each time they say the same thing as security ITS FIRST COME FIRST serve and there is nothing can be done. Ok ... It'S now time for me to make that MOVE and do not Renew lease.....
Way back when we all were apartment hunting we were ecstatic to find affordability and the location within The Lakes Apartments. Sadly living here was a preview of what hell is like. Let me be so kind to write out a nice organized list for you. 1. Residents have their dogs without a leash outside. 2.You will likely have evidence of that same dog on your Toms or Jordans. 3.Occasionally you might be attacked by a dog while checking your mail. 4. Some weekends you might hear a smack down going on next door. 5. The Wake County Police Department will always be on site. 6. The ducks on the property will enjoy getting in front of your car :).
This place is rlly cool and the people,Roaches,And dilapidated structures really set the scene. Its almost like the Pitt DLC from Fallout: 3 10/10
DO not move here unless you seriously can't afford something else! I lived on the second floor the units are poorly made feels like your balcony is going to fall through. Staff is nice until they get your money.. area just looks like a cleaned up hood nice park though insulation is horrible
This place sucks big time. The only thing I like here is the fact that these apartments come cable ready and that's it. My electricity bill was extremely high because of poor insulation and they will not fix it. Also every year my A/C breaks when it is time to use it. Nosey neighbors looking like they wanted to rob you. Police out here every week due to disturbances. My home girl even told me she saw someone hanging from a second floor apartment (trying to steal someone's Marijuana) I move out next month and I am effin ready to go. ASAP!!!! My real rating would be no stars but you can't do less than one.
