42 West Apartments
I've been living here for over an year, and so far it's been great. All my visitors are impressed when they walk in to the apartment. It's in a central location with lots of restaurants and major stores nearby - many within a 10 minute walk. Everything in the complex is new, hence clean. The apartments are very spacious, and there's plenty of parking close to the entrance of each building. So far there has been nothing about the complex that would make me consider moving elsewhere. Any problems I've had were handled well by the management. The management organizes social events to meet our neighbors. Everyone I've met has been friendly, although many residents keep to themselves compared to other places I've lived.On the down side, the walls/ceilings don't block sound too well so I can sometimes hear my neighbors or people in the hallway. But in general my immediate neighbors are quiet and respectful with the exception of an occasional party now and then, which is reasonable. The paint on the walls isn't the best - even a slight touch leaves a mark. It's the same paint in the bathroom and kitchen, so even water marks are easily visible. They increased my rent this year with no room for negotiation, to the same level as any new resident. So basically there's no benefit for having lived here longer than anybody else. My rent increases with other apartment complexes in the past have been such that my rent remained lower than the rate for new residents. There's also no way to pay the rent online without a fee (I believe it's a $8 fee) - in 2017 this is crazy for an online transaction. Comcast has a monopoly with the internet service, so we have no choice with respect to quality/price. There are no trash-chutes, so we have to walk all around the complex to the dumpsters. The management has changed multiple times within the past year I've been here, which hasn't had any direct impact on me but it seems very odd. Overall, it's a nice, stress-free place to live with some minor inconveniences.
