Decent enough during the school year, despite having the highest crime rate in West Campus for the past seven years - 3 stars there. But DO NOT live here over the summer. Current issues going on: - waited 9 weeks and had to call 4 times for maintenance to come put in new light bulbs (half of them in the apartment were out) and fix the running toilet; - the "security" sensor on the "locked" Nueces St entrance gate has been broken for a solid month (still is at this time), including while an armed suspect was being pursued by police two streets over; - instead of fixing the sensor, the apartment complex chained and dead bolted the door shut, forcing all residents to walk around the block just to get inside the building; - an old homeless man who looks like he's about to die has been living on the bench right outside my balcony for the past 2 months straight; - and last I walked by the pool, it was shut down by health inspectors. I am not even going to mention that the gym consistently smells like death, the internet flakes out at least once a week, and every time it rains the entire ground floor entrance way becomes a massive pond... these are things you grow to tolerate here. Management is nonexistent at 26 West and the employee turnover is VERY high. Every apartment complex has issues, but blatant disregard for resident safety will not be tolerated.
ive posted on a few side,i know people use different ones,so the apartments are very nice inside,mid grade stainless steel,laminate wood flooring and a good layout,i have a large balcony,theres washer dryer,a nice gym and a lot parking,theres also parties at the leasing office and the food is good,the people are...well idk,im guessing its more family or people who are done with college and well into their careers..or trust fund babies lol,theres a few things that annoy me with living here.one is what your paying for,the smallest one bedroom is over 650 sq.ft and is $870 but...factor this,they make you pay $25 valet trash (she didnt tell me about until i already signed the lease) and they only come sun-thurs not on the days which you actually need them fri/sat,and they are so strict with the rules,like...its just trash,and they will leave it here!then the water bill is typically $45 on top of that monthly (1 bedroom) and the water doesnt even get hot...so your paying $950 to stay here pretty much in the middle of kind of nowhere,i was in a hurry when i leased here and its a lease up so of course they were a little pushy when getting people in here,but needless to say i wont be renewing my lease,there are way better dealsRead more: http://www.apartmentratings.com/rate/TX-Austin-Indigo-111261611.html#ixzz2sUuhVlvw
07/11/2017Legacy Legacy at Southpark
Legacy at Southpark (James on South First) is an amazing property! I moved in back in May under Roscoe and have had an amazing experience since day one. The second I walked in to my first floor apartment, I was blown away at the quality of the appliances and amenities. 12 foot Cathedral ceilings with very nice quiet fans, beautiful granite counters, wood floors throughout, and stainless steel appliances! The wrap around porch is very spacious and has extra storage with key entry... Everything in mint condition. The AC is cool and evenly distributed with a low power bill! The bathroom is gorgeous and features a huge hotel like tub. This place is so nice! As far as amenities... the infinity pool has gas grills, soon a fridge, and plenty of space! The gym is awesome, the business center is available 24/7, and there is coffee everyday in the community center! I have to say that the best part of living here are the staff: Dacia and Gracie are absolute angels who are always available when I need them, especially after moving in. The maintenance staff is ON POINT! They are polite, prompt, and always know exactly what they are doing. I love living here and look forward to many years ahead. I cannot believe they charge so little for rent! Thank you Legacy (James on South First) at Southpark! - Levi
04/14/13: I am still a current tenant, but now feel that the management does not treat long term tenants fairly. My rent has increased $186 since I wrote this review. Always thought you reward good tenants, not penalized them with INCREASES every time they sign a NEW lease. You also built a fence around the property which I'm grateful for, but you still have not made it PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY! There's only one in and out of the property, don't you think this could be dangerous in case of fire or other emergency? Sorry, but I must downgrade you 2 stars, since 2010 review.2010: I am current tenant who can honestly say since the current owners took over the condition of complex improved 1000%. There has been considerable upgrade to the building &amp;amp; landscape. They respond to tenants' repair requests VERY quickly. If you're looking for nice clean newly renovated apartment &amp;amp; reasonable rent this is the place!
03/22/2017A Plus Apartment Locating
I have to recommend Lisa Victorian. When I found out that I would be relocating to Austin, I did my research online and tried to pick out a few potential favorites from an overwhelmingly long list of apartments in South/Central Austin. Deciding that I wanted some assistance, I was referred to Lisa. She quickly answered my call, we chatted for a few minutes about what I was looking for, and within a couple of hours, was already back to me with multiple amazing properties. She found unbelievable deals, talked to the properties for me, and was able to meet the very next day to view them.Not only did she save me a ton time but she went above and beyond to provide a wonderful, effortless experience and ultimately helped me find a better apartment AND deal than I could have imagined doing on my own.-Tyler
05/08/2017Tanglewood North Apartments
I really enjoyed living at this apartment complex. The management and staff are always friendly and willing to help. I have had minimal problems with my unit, however when problems did arise the maintenance staff were always quick to respond and fix my things. Another great thing about Tanglewood is that there is a 24 hour HEB about 5 minute drive or a 10 minute walk. If you're a UT Austin student, like I am, the shuttle is very convenient. It's directly across from tanglewood, so getting to school is easy and fast. It's relatively cheaper living here than in many Hyde park apartment complexes, where rent is surging. I highly recommend this place.
Great complex with some nice amenities: , swimming pool, pet stations, seating areas for conversation, mailboxes in front of the office, and each apartment has their own private patio and private entry, plus they accept BBQ grills. An apartment is only as nice as the residents make it. We have some that will not follow their lease agreement and feel they have special privileges. I guess you have that in every apartment complex, LOL. The bus runs out in front, it is well lighted. There are some more areas that could be improved on, but we are getting there. Overall it is a good community to live in.
