After living here for a year I'd have to say there are definite pros and cons. The pros are the neighbors and maintenance staff are friendly and it is very centrally located. That is pretty much the end of the pros. The management has a snotty attitude, and poor communication skills. Haven't seen her here until recently and I am thoroughly unimpressed by the way she presents herself. They present any issue as all encompassing and leave threatening letters on your door when you have not committed the offense, under the reasoning that it is required by the DOH. The floors and ceilings are thin and you hear pretty much everything through the oven and bathroom ventilation. They will tell you the appliances are fully updated, once again not the case. Maybe in some apartments, but it wasn't so in mine. The floors in my hallway are uneven, the doors have a half inch of space open on the bottom, The entrance into the building is secured, but you don't get a code just a keybob and must let any visitors in by walking to the door. It is quite the pain when ordering delivery. My neighbors are sorry to see me go, I was sorry to go until I had a conversation with management today about having to go. Like I said very snotty with a poor attitude. My advice find somewhere else to live.
A few months back, during 2 days of heavy rain, my bedroom ceiling collapsed. Wet insulation, plaster and water all over my bed and floor. It happened on a Sunday afternoon, so luck was on my side this didn't happen in the middle of the night. Seeing there is no manager OR maintenance person on site, there was nothing I could do until Monday morning. Maintenance was pretty quick to fix it..............I thought. Tonight, heavy rain again. The ceiling sprung a leak just to the right where it had collapsed before. Being a late Friday night, I fear nothing can be done until Monday. I also do not want to chance sleeping in there until it's fixed. No telling how bad it is. I have to make this my last lease here. I can't take this much longer. I have lived here for a long, long time and would have rated this place much higher when I first moved here. It's been a slow decline ever since. Having no manager or maintenance on site is inexcusable and is my main reason I cannot renew my lease.
These apartments have pros and cons. Pros:very spacious, plenty of closet and cabinet space, hot water all the time, good access to natural light. Cons:unprofessional leasing consultants-discussed another tenant's concern in front of me,unprofessional maintenance staff-enter apartments without knocking or ringing the doorbell, maintenance do not leave a former for completed work, repair requests take forever to complete, machines need to be replaced in the laundry facilities, laundry facilities are not kept clean, hallways are not kept clean. I've been here for a year. These apartments would be more appealing and bring more profitable if the management would stay on top of their game and pay more attention to what concerned tenants are telling them.
I lived there for 1.5 years. The place has 4 pros, and unlimited cons... Pros- good area, maintence is quick to fix, cheap rent w/ wash/dry in unit, 21+ pool... Cons- appliances needed to be replaced not fixed, management (rude at times, they leave by 4 m-f) just went section 8, landscaping is horrid, dog drops everywhere, parking is limited, trash is far, walls are paper thin, etc. it's not the worst place out there and it's cheap as dirt... Honestly the best bang for the buck within 25 miles... If you can deal with the cons.
