I lived at Central Park for about 2 years and when I first moved here, it was a very nice community; clean, quiet, friendly neighbors, all the works and I was very happy and loved the location. Ever since the new owners took over, this place has gone downhill severely. It's extremely, and I mean, extremely dirty, the halls are absolutely littered with leaves, dirt, trash, you name it, you got it. Cigarette bums all over the place, people who don't pick up after their pets, empty cans, candy wrappers, it's like this place is one big dumpster. It's also incredibly noisy now and the neighbors are extremely disrespectful, mainly because they're young and think they're entitled, mostly. I lived in a second story unit and I swear the neighbors in the apartment above me never slept because I could hear them all day and all night, stomping, playing loud music, having parties, opening their sliding glass door probably about a good 5 times every few minutes or so and we couldn't even leave our door open for fresh air anymore because they were chain smokers and our whole apartment would reek of cigarette smoke. Not to mention, the downstairs neighbors were complete and total potheads and would leave trash EVERYWHERE. On one of my last days living at this property, I actually got cussed at by someone in another building because my dog was barking, and then he proceeded to open his door and BLAST his techno music for a solid hour, it was actually like Central Park had turned into an Abercrombie & Fitch store it was so loud, I was extremely angry and called the office immediately and thankfully it stopped. I'm very disappointed that the quality of this place has sunk so low, it used to be such a nice property and now it's extremely dirty, poorly kept, and is full of mainly rude residents. I'm glad I moved.
horrible structured(i can hear the neighbor upstairs taking) . they they answer the phone at the office. the mail got stolen, while they could not replace it. overpriced , gate is alwas open making strangers welcome. i will not recomend this place to anyone. anybody is approved.
If somebody ever tells you that roaches are normal because it's Florida, run far far away. That is the kind of lies they like to tell people who aren't from here in order to get away with charging so much for this dump. I moved in last summer and literally moved out the very next day. AND they had the audacity to charge me for the one night I stayed. The staff was extremely condescending and unprofessional. The apartment looked absolutely nothing like the model. Our carpets were absolutely filthy, the floors and walls had burn marks and were stained yellow from the smokers who had lived here before. The sinks sprayed water everywhere but into the sink itself. The washer and dryer were moldy and there was a thick black puddle just behind the washer where the improper plumbing pooled itself back inside. Needless to say, the air conditioning was just as backed up and molded. They tried to claim this as move in ready. The icing on the cake were the 20 or so roaches that literally fell out of the holes in the ceiling that nobody had bothered to seal and onto the floor of our apartment. It's was clear that the problem that was beyond a simple pest control spray. The staff didn't bother to argue their 30 day satisfaction guarantee but seemed genuinely angry at us for finding this apartment unacceptable. Given the great location they really just need to fire everybody, burn the place down, and start fresh.
Well where to start? First as almost all the reviews and residents have said the new staff is horrible, really, really horrible. They will smile and act nice when you come in asking about the apartments, the office area/pool will look nice. That is because that all they do is blow the leafs off around the office and pool. If you go thru the gates during the day you'll probably see maintenance man standing around talking and washing their personal cars. Oh, yes, the maintenance man, half of them barely speak English the other half will talk in Spanish with others, and when they do come in for the problem you need it taken care of about a week or more ago, they actually get on the phone with their wife/girlfriend and tell them how got to fix this problem and they will be able to go and do the thing they were planing to do. That sadly means a half ass job, which for you means couple trips to the office for you(oh you tough someone else? No your paying them rent and have to put in work for what your paying for as well), hearing all the promises, and then there is waiting times, did I tell you about the waiting times? they are long, very, very long Also if you have an emergency, oh I don't know, like the AC decides is old and like to take a brake from working at 9pm, which means you are sleeping in hot, sweaty bed as they don't have a emergency line. Yes the time they open is when your "emergency" will be "taken care off" after talking with everyone who works there about their plans and family problems, they might show up at the end of the day, and if you happened to have an emergency and you run up to the office at 8:30 am you be told to cook fudge(not really cook but to f off, yep) by the people drinking their coffee and that they open at 9 am not at 8:30 am. Sadly that mean you have to look up city health codes if you have a infestation(oh not it not only roaches, it mice and squirrels and frogs). Now about that nice pool, yes it nice, but not Sunday or Saturday you will be amazed how much people can drink and smoke(no silly, it not tobacco the people out there are smoking ;) ) on Monday when you go to the gym in morning, well what I mean going to the gym is really going and coming right back as the keys will not work. Yes the same keys that will not work on the gates either, but hey who need the keys to open the gates when they are broken and wide open most of the time. Oh I forgot to tell you how your apartment will smell of your trash as the trash man is always late and sometimes they decide to take a day off or miss your trash, that smell from the bag next to your door on a hot summer day will not only go into your apartment but also the neighbors will blame you and the office will tell you some illogical things and you will be at fault for it, I guess, somehow I think. Also good luck washing your car there, as that spot is always used for a parking space, meaning there is always a car of maintenance man washing his car there. Now back to the smell you be reminded of how bad things might smell every time you check your mail as it right beside a large garbage disposal (oh just thinking about the people that live close to it, or the mail man) that is overfilled most of the time. Please there are other places, look around with out the staff showing you the place, and drive in during the midday and close too midnight on a weekend and see your self or talk to the residents you see around, they will tell you. Also should mention the high cost and cost of renewing...no it flies every time you resign your leas with them for another year...that was a bad idea or when you sign a new one(all of the sudden the price might be different). Don't go thru all the trouble or believe what they say in the office. Don't bother and go somewhere else.
I have been living here for the past one year and I have seen the change in management. The old management was very friendly and as other reviews I don't like the new management. They take like months to get problems fixed like the water was leaking and they took like 5-6 weeks to fix it, same thing with AC. Some of the apartments are poorly build and I think I'm living in one of them as the electric bill is very very high. I have a single bedroom 750 sq ft apartment and I get electric bill an average of about 150$, that is high as per the electric company and though I have complained so many times about it, they do nothing...huh.. The only reason I still want live here is the location of the apartments, mall is right in front, there is AMC, and a small beautiful park and everything is just nearby. The new apartments are nice and spacious and I'm waiting to get moved into one of them.
