I am communicating good things about the architectural design. Time spent with a leasing agent on duty and a walk through of the apartment available was mouthwatering. Closet space, the different color of cabinets, the large windows and doors tall enough for a professional basketball player (7' or more) is something to clap your hands about, however, open first to college students and leases set based on fall, winter and spring terms of college years. No, Thank you.
EVERYONE, PLEASE READ !!!
I have been at the venue for almost two years now and have had nothing but problems. I am a very clean person but my apartment has been infested with bugs since the day I moved in. I recently had to THROW MY KEURIG AWAY because it became infested and unusable. I had only used a few times to make matters worse. I also find bugs everywhere and I honestly disgusted. Management offered to have someone come spray, but I have the bug come every week with NO RESULTS.
Another concern is there is some kind of chemical that comes out of the pipes in the parking deck. It leaked all over my windshield and the substance would not come off with traditional cleaning methods. You can read in similar comments that this is a common issue and management would not clean or fix and took them over a week to apologize.
Another big issue was that BROWN WATER leaked from my bathroom light fixture onto my bathroom and I have learned this has also happened many times in the past by previous residents.
Lastly, and this is a big one, there is serious construction happening not even 50 feet from my apartment that begins at 5 am and carries on during the day. The noise will wake you from dead sleep due to how loud it is. THIS CONSTRUCTION WILL NOT CONCLUDE UNTIL 2021 or 2022 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All in all, if you like paying $1400 dollars in rent to share your apartment with bugs, loud construction, potential damage to your car, and floods the venue is the place for you. Even if you complain to management you will get ignored via email and you will not get the results you need. So enjoy!
My daughter moved into The Venue this year and I am so glad we chose this location for her. Its within walking distance to UAB which is awesome because we didnt want to buy an on-campus parking pass. As a parent, I also love the fact they have after-hours security and controlled access entry into the building. The staff made the leasing and move-in process a breeze for us. Maintenance is always quick to fix any issues shes had. Our daughter will be staying at The Venue until she leaves UAB!
The wifi goes out every other day and it not reliable. If it was the weekday I would go to the library but they are usually closed. The rent is too expensive for this to be possible. Anything that is interfering with my studies will not get a good review from me. Also, I agree about the attitude from the management from a past reviewer. I was so uncomfortable that I began to order less packages so that I could see them less. I started again when they hired this new jolly, nice guy with glasses. They need to replace most of them with people like him. The manager over the entire building is nice though but you're not going to interact with her as much as the workers. Overall, I love the location but not the building as a whole including the amenities.
I lived here last summer, the location is great, but the management is terrible. They are unresponsive and do not care about anything that happens with the property. They are ruining a great location. I do not recommend wasting your money here.
