These are the worst apartments Ive ever lived in. Water used to be free now they charge us for water yet they still cut off water without notice I was taking a shower and they randomly cut it off! Also parking is horrible ever since they came up with reserved parking we always have to park on firelane. There also is allot of ignorant and mean uneducated people. The worst my neighbor got shot for no reason and it was around 2pm! We can't wait to move. The good thing is that the apartment inside is big but I can't raise my children in this area.
The water will be turned off randomly for no reason, without notice. Sometimes the hot water itself will be turned off, other times, both cold and hot water won't work. This has been happening more recently lately. Also, another major issue, the electricity has random brownouts (no power) for a split second, many times per day and is VERY annoying. We have had to get a new battery backup for our computer so that the random brownouts won't turn off the computer many times per day without notice. We have discussed this with the leasing office, and all they say is "We'll look into it.." like they don't really care. I wouldn't recommend this apartment.
3 stars because I lived there for 6 years and it's pretty much been love and hate. Management was so good when I moved in, but got poorer as time went by. Painted it orange and brown for some reason. That's not a right combination. This apartment is pretty safe though. You won't hear many cases of gunshots or violence of any sort. One big problem I have is the Reserved parking spots. Almost all the parking areas are becoming Reserved for around 30 dollars each and it's just annoying.
Been living here for almost a year decent sized apartment but the problem I'm having is that the apartment workers are leaving nails all over the place. These have punctured one of my tires. Very irresponsible on their behalf would rate higher if it wasn't for that or the reserved parking which is annoying to have to park further all because someone else is paying for a spot and.you are not.
They have improved 10 fold since the new management / owner took over.. there is now adequate lighting at night to deter thugs. They now how overnight security (who btw sleep on the job fyi..management) I think they are heading in the right direction but the sudden increase in the monthly rent is uncalled for.. I don't think its appropriate now to increase so much especially since the place still has allot of abysmal issues. The INTERNAL water outages are always frequent even to this day.. they are always improving etc etc. One of the previous staff members tried to always put the blame on City of Houston, however I know that was not the case as it was always internal plumbing/maintenance issues. They tried fixing the flooding issue within the parking structure, still not resolved, its embarrassing. Also they just laid out speed bumps that are WAY TOO high and everytime my car passes through them, it hits the bottom portion of my car!! Never in my life have I ever had so many nails in my car's tires until I moved to this complex. Every month I kid you it seems that I find a new nail on one of my tires.. I have seen the previous maintenance guys throwing trash and dropping debry everywhere and im sure the same is still going on. My neighbors are ghetto. No other way to put it. Ghetto loud and love hanging out on the stairs as if it where the projects. All That said, this place has improved ten fold and is definitely heading in the right direction. I have however chosen to take my business elsewhere as im not too keen to commit another year of continued slow progress. I cant deal with the price hike.. it doesn't compensate for the terrible things ive been put through. (also let me add, when I moved into my apt, my kitchen dishwasher was not working.. guess what...a year later, no one has showed up to fix it.. even after multiple attempts to get this rectified. To be honest the new management isn't aware as Ive stoped caring) Oh (and again omg another drama) my complex had the entire roof replacd while I was living there and after that the roof leaked.. Before it would never leak but after the supposed leaks, my ceiling leaked and it ruined my HD TV SET.. It was an older tv set and had recently updated to a new tv set so never made a claim..be careful and if you have a leak.. make sure you cover your electronics with plastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They went out there 2 times to replace the roofing! twice!!!!!!!!!!!! Sure my review for the most part is negative but id give them a moderate rating because of the price.. you cant go and pay small dollars and expect to be treated like a god or goddess with luxury. For the price point it was adequate and reasonable. As of the date of my review, im givng the new staff a 5/5.. the old staff was the pits.. the most rude ghetto people ever!
