I have lived here a year this summer. Though the complex is older in general, I find it is perfect for me. It's close to the medical center, and although near enough to a gas station and a tiny stip-mall, it's not bordered by any super-busy streets and is fairly secluded in that regard. There is a magnet school nearby but I haven't had any issues with it as the hours don't conflict with my schedule in any way and I've never seen any "kids" hanging around. I have a near neighbor with a yippy dog, and construction has been going on on the nearby intersection for nearly a year (looks like they're nearly finished), but generally speaking the noise level of the area is suitable for family living or the quiet student life. Parking is exceptional - covered parking is for residents only but there is PLENTY of guest parking and therefore no restrictions to worry about. There is a 24-hour "office" and "workout room". Both are underwhelming, but are in fact open 24-hours thanks to passcoded doors. Both amenities are underwhelming, but reasonable. The office has a computer and an industrial black-and-white printer, but the couple times I have tried to use the printer it was not working for one reason or another (I wound up just buying a printer, so I'm not really sure how reliable it really is, as I never bothered to complain). The gym has I think 4 cardio machines and some weights, as well as a small TV. I don't use that either so I can't say much. I like that this place provides valet, curb-side trash/recycling pick up twice a week. Also, I really appreciated that cable is included in the rent because it meant that I didn't have to wait for a cable guy to come "set up" my internet/TV after I had moved in (internet is not included, just cable). The basic cable they use has lots of channels, too, so I never felt the need to upgrade. The staff has always been very accommodating, especially where my complaints have been concerned. My only remaining complaint is that my ceiling creaks really badly when my upstairs neighbor walks, but I have been assured that this will be addressed within the next week or so (I think fixing it may involved ripping out some flooring, so I understand why it has taken a while to fix). Lastly, and a main reason I chose this place: The staff has always been very accommodating, especially where my complaints have been concerned. My only remaining complaint is that my ceiling creaks really badly when my upstairs neighbor walks, but I have been assured that this will be addressed within the next week or so (I think fixing it may involved ripping out some flooring, so I understand why it has taken a while to fix). I know I was overwhelmed when searching for apartments last year, so I hope this information has been helpful.
Maintenance is very very slow, also about a month ago a motorcycle got stolen and multiple car got broken into, management is nice... fitness room is very small and it doesnt have much to offer. there is 2 pools and they do get crowded in the summer. Getting in and out of the apartment is fairly easy so its not hard to get to the street. there is also a shell gas station walking distance that is sometimes prices are good. behind that store there is also a laundry place. it will take you about 5-10 min. to get to either I-10 or I-410. H.E.B. is also about 5 min., and Wal-Mart is about 10 min. accross the apartment is a daycare center.
Paint is a little thick in places, but it's too be expected in an older complex. Carpets are new and the units are very clean. Their staff is friendly and helpful, cheap cable, valet trash pick up and covered parking are great extras to enjoy while living here. When I couldn't get my door open(Building had settled a bit due to no rain), Assistant Manager looked at it and Maintence fixed the problem immediately...
I've made several friends and professional contacts while living here the last 3 or 4 years and have recommended it to other friends and coworkers. Joseph Hall
I have lived here for a month or so now. The staff has been wonderful and has gone above expectations. They have found and fixed two small water leaks, one inside not reported by that person in apt. and one outside some 4 feet underground. They are working with me on moving to another unit due to neighbors who walk loudly late night. They even came over at 1 am. to here the problem. They are also ordering special screws to try to fix the problem prior to anyone else moving in, or may end up fixing the subfloor so I can stay. They are easy to work with and quite friendly. I see no problem with anyone working with this staff. RQ
