I would love to stay but pricing is going up, plus I found a 3bd home for the same amount not far from here. They're adding a whole bunch of fees and placing a lot of restrictions for different things and it's a bit overwhelming. The staff was pretty awesome tho! Laura even asked us to reconsider our move and offered to cancel the vacate letter :D! They're so interactive with their little gifts and coffee and snacks that it's hard not to love it here. If im ever in the market for an apt again, I will definitely come back.
I love it here. Aside from some people not picking up after their dogs it's fantastic! Still can't figure out how to get into the gym lol.
Amenities are decent, and staff is responsive to work orders. Walls are thin and doors slamming (a lot of this) will jar the building. Parking is inadequate you find yourself parking a couple of buildings away from your door if you're lucky. Security is very aggressive towards residents and they carry weapons. Perhaps in light of the MURDER that occurred recently. Night time is frightening between the crime and the security. People consistently fly through the gates behind others, accessing the complex without a gate key or dialing a resident. In summation, spend the extra 50 bucks and live somewhere else. I didn't take the advice when it was presenting to me by a lot of different people and I regret it.
I have lived here for almost a year now (today is 5/25/12) &, as w/any place, there are pros & cons. Yes, the complex is older, so the floors can be uneven, as can be the inside of the cabinets...but, for the price, you cannot find another apartment in the area which is comparable as far as size goes. Yes, there seem to be quite a few ambulances here on a regular basis but I attribute that to the fact that a lot of the renters are older & may have health problems. The crime rate here is not abnormally high, I have a nice car, as do many people who live here, & no one has ever touched it! I have had a couple of problems, but the management is VERY quick to respond & has taken immediate action to correct any issue. I have paid my rent on time every month except the first, when my checking account was hacked..they understood, & because I was able to show them proof that I was telling the truth, they worked with me & didn't charge me a bunch of fees. I would recommend this place to anyone. My only complaint is that they don't have three bedroom apartments so that I wouldn't have to move! I love the management & can only assume that the people that complain about them are doing so because they didn't pay their rent on time & got kicked to the curb.
