I honestly absolutely hate living here. I am so unhappy. Complex: The units are packed together and everyone's on top of each other. I know everyone's business not because I choose to. The pictures in the website are misleading because they look nothing like them. The complex is ugly and run down. The gym room is tiny, with only 3 pieces of equiptment. Their highlight is the racket ball room which is always filled with college kids or children who should be on a leash. Mail: USPS has boxes for oversized items but management keeps oversized packages in their office and if you work 8-5 and commute like me, the weekend is the only time you can pick up your package, which makes it really inconvenient if you waiting for something important. Management: I've had to deal with crappy neighbors this whole time and complaining does nothing! Everything is via email which sometimes I don't have the time for. I've never seen notices on my neighbors doors about the noise from the family of 4 in a one bedroom beside me with 2 screaming children ALL THE TIME. I've even called 911 about child abuse, NO JOKE, and management still does nothing. I keep emailing and they say they will take care of it and never do. They're gonna screw me on my deposit, I just know it. Building: Super thin walls, I can hear everything from babies crying to TV's, people having sex, chairs sliding in the dining area, cabinets shutting, and people talking. Better hope your neighbors are considerate like I am, which mine are not! Cabinets are cheeply made and an ugly color. Appliances suck, electric heating and no A/C. Bathrooms are small, kitchen is small, bedroom is small. No closet space. Not worth it for the price in this area. Price: Too much for this area. They say rent is such and such but they don't include water/sewer and your parking spot which adds up quickly! 825+ is too much for a shitty one bedroom apartment. Leasing is required unless you want to pay LITERALLY $100+ more a month. I believe it's actually $125 but I'm not exacrly sure. I was offered a 9, 10, 11 or 12 month lease. Upon re-up they told me that a re-lease is not guaranteed, the price is not guaranteed to stay (which is typical, but...) and that month-to-month may not even be an option. They have the choice to terminate their business with me but wow, talk about courtesy to someone who pays their rent on time every month and literally just complains about shit everyone else wouldn't want to put up with who were in my shoes. Guess I'll be moving out then! Which was my plan anyway. Parking: SUCKS! Unless you only have one vehicle or pay for more than one spot, you better race home after work to claim your spot. You can't have a lot of visitors over unless you commute together and people are so inconsiderate. Crime: Is high in this area. I've had to call 911 because on the 3rd floor of my building there was a drunk person SCREAMING at literally 1:30 a.m. for over an hour. The neighbors got in a fight with them to try and calm them down. The people who were associated with that person have been a problem from the get go and complaints never seem to help. There are a lot of homeless people that go through the trash (again, management does nothing) and homeless park their motor homes and vans on Unthank and literally live there. EPD gets several calls a week from me about that and nothing seems to change. I've just given up calling because St. Vincent comes out, makes contact, they leave and a few days later they're back and within the law and the whole process starts over again. There are homeless guys on their bikes always riding around and looking in the trash and cars and whatever else they can steal or take. I've read several incidents of people having domestic violence in this area and their cars broken into. Be weary! The people in this complex also like to take shopping carts from Albertsons after shopping therr and leave them in the hallways. Pretty trashy... Seriously, be weary of moving here and avoid this place like the plague.
Comfortable and clean enough - the apartments were built fairly recently - with reasonable space, attractive amenities, as well as close to my wife's office, biking paths, and a decent dog park. However, the rent was a definitely high for the West Eugene area, especially considering that the apartments are next to two trailer parks and a strip mall. The move-in process was a hassle (paperwork and inter-office communication doesn't seem to be a strong suit for the leasing associates), and then the leasing agent couldn't find our apartment building! When we eventually moved out, our security deposit return was unreasonably decreased down due to ridiculous things and inaccurate record-keeping. The management doesn't seem to do a very good job of retaining leasing associates, which seems indicative. While there are certainly far worse options in Eugene, you might want to check out other places as well.
I lived here from November 2010 to November 2011. Staff was very rude and lazy. The cops were there often for break ins or domestic violence. When we moved out we were charged $500 for 'damaging the carport'. When we went to ask what they were talking about they said that their was video evidence we hit the carport with a u-haul. We never rented a u-haul and when I went back to confront the manager about it and had bank statements and proof from U-Haul that we never rented there. She told me that there was actually no evidence and they 'assumed' it was our apartment because we were moving out in that time frame the carport was hit. I finally got my money back but only after threatening to take them to court. There are much nicer places to live for the money.
I agree with the negative comments on here. I lived at the apartments while I was going to college. I had a roommate and her and I lived there for three years. We never had any parties, we didn't smoke or have a lot of people over. When we moved out the staff charged us over $900 and said things were filthy and they said they had to replace the window blinds and doors. My Dad and I had cleaned that place for two full days and it was spotless. I could've eaten off of the floor of any room in that apartment. It's a nice place to live but once you move out they completely screw you over. I consulted a lawyer (my Aunt's boss) and she said that I could fight the charges but would have to pay just as much for attorney fees and it wouldn't be worth it. Don't move here unless you want to be charged an arm and a leg after you move out. I realize that most apartment complexes pull this stuff cause that's how they make their money but it's not right.
They are in the process of screwing me on my deposit even though my apartment was spotless. I was warned of that before, but this apartment complex is particularly bad compared to any of the many aparts I have stayed at. Crime is a problem in area. My car was broke into twice, my storage unit also. They are not safe don't rent their. They refuse to fix outdoor lighting even when eugene police tells them they need to. Management is horrible if you have any problem like your hot water failing/scalding you..the dog park near their is good, but my dog was highly alergic to something there. A neighbors grow? Or just mold from the problems they have with washing machine?
