The new management is awesome. I toured here a few years ago and it has completely changed. The employees are happy and greet with enthusiasm.

Lovely place to live. Management is great, apartments are nice, located in a central area close to Metro. I could walk to Wholefoods or to the metro in 5 minutes or less. I will move back when I return to the DC area.

Terrible experience. Current resident not going to renew. They are great during the sales process them once you sign, the service is gone and you see the awful quality the buildings are. Apartments in poor shape. Maintenance doesn't respond. Errors in rent billing. Garage entrance always blocked. Onsite managers do not communicate. Do NOT rent here. You pay wayyyyy too much for a terrible experience. There are plenty of better apartments in the area.

We are disappointed to learn you will not be remaining a valued member of our community moving forward. While all buildings require some upkeep, our dedicated maintenance team is committed to resolving all reported issues in as timely a manner as possible. In a community of this size, maintenance requests are prioritized by order received and severity of need. Due to current considerations for COVID-19, some non-emergency maintenance may be slightly delayed. We appreciate all residents' patience as our team tends to all outstanding requests. We would love the opportunity to address your specific concerns in greater detail and work towards improving your experience here overall throughout the remainder of your time at our community. Please call the office at your convenience if you are interested in doing so. Thank you. - Mandy Nelson, Community Manager, (615) 610-7429
