I would never ever suggest these apartments to anyone. I have a one year lease, with 4 more months and I am ready to leave TODAY. First of all, the apartments are outrageously expensive, for how cheap and awful everything really is. Everything breaks easily, and management won't even come fix it after you call and make a report. I've called three times about some broken tiles in the master shower, and no one has come to even look at it. Secondly, the AC hardly works at all. I'm constantly hot and sweating. Even with the AC on high and a fan blowing on me. You also can't change the temperature. You only get the setting they provide. Thirdly, and probably most worrisome, is the massive amount of cockroaches throughout the house. No matter how clean you keep everything, or how much Raid you use a week, you cannot get rid of them. They are in every cupboard in the kitchen, and slowly getting into the rooms and bathrooms. Two good things I can say about the Colonnade, is that I've never heard my neighbors, and I've never had safety issues.
Had a really good vibe from the staff... Love the newly renovated apartments, five pools!
This place is so horrible. I can't wait to move. When we moved in we were told we would be billed individually for our utilities. Then they billed us by our building, and the staff was new so we couldn't see the same people. We never agreed to $210 a month for utilities! The AC does not work. The air is not that cold and our apartment has been 85-90 degrees all summer. Even after I bought a thermometer to verify, all they did was clean the coils and basically tell us to suck it up. The showers are awful. Freezing then scalding. The parking situation is awful. You can't even buy a second parking spot in a two bedroom. But most of all, the people here are really RUDE. I've been treated like a hassle for asking about my AC when I pay 210 a month for a hot apartment! They make it extremely difficult to pay rent; one employee told us they would allow a phone payment from each of us, and another woman yelled at me the same day when I called to make it. I can't believe how these people have treated us; just plain mean. It's cheap but it's the worst place I've ever lived.
i live here and i cant wait too move the apartments are totally trash the maintenance team is totally incapable of doing the simplest of things like changing closet doors or unplugging a clogged drain in the master bathroom. for example i went into the office an asked for them too change the doors in my bedroom in april they told me it would take 3 weeks too change them i also asked for them too unclog the bathroom well 2 months go pass an they seem too have forgotten so i put in another work order for the same thing another month goes passed they don't fix the doors then one of the doors falls on my daughter i call the office cussing an all they do is take the doors out but don't replace them. then after 4 months of cussing an calling alison-shelton they finally put up new doors however the doors are too small and are still falling off they tell me that's the best they can an will do. these apartments are totally trash i wouldn't recommend this place too a homeless man, they wont an for some reason cant keep the pools clean an levels right, the people in the office are rude disrespectful an do not give a damn about there tenants all they want is for you too shut up don't complain about stuff falling apart, all the trash that liters the complex, it is literally the worst place too live an i cannot wait till my lease is up this summer so i can move too the apartments that are literally up 18th st they are just a completely better complex. do not waste your time and money moving into the colonade apartments
Although it may seem cheap at first but beware! The owners change like every three months along with the management team, the A/C control units are ancient and only work when they get the time to change them over, the plumbing is crap and the showers burn you with scalding hot water then freeze you!! Apparently they had the money to fix the MANAGERS shower (which supposedly cost them $500) but they cant fix the tenants showers!!!! Not only that but if you have multiple cars good luck finding a spot when they let people with work vans take the only free spots and you can only get ONE assigned spot. Not to mention the absurdly HUGE speed bumps that could knock out an Ford Expedition's frame. Find somewhere that was built more recently and save yourself the headache for an extra few bucks....
