I would not recommend this complex as your next rental property. Although the maintenance staff is always helpful and friendly, the office staff are incompetent. They lose packages, they don't return calls and don't reply to emails. They are wonderful until you sign the lease, then ignore you.
The garbage piles up. They only have one trash receptacle for the entire complex. By Monday morning, the trash has piled up by the compactor. It attracts ducks and birds that leave feces all over the area.
They don't clean the dog area and the car wash area has been out of order for months.
Lastly, there is garbage thrown all over the complex, they don't handle unruled dogs who bark into the night and teenagers sneak in and smoke marijuana in the pool area. I rented here because I'd the location to everything close by, but I'm moving out next month and found lots of other places with the same rental cost in the area.
The Security. The great location close to various public amenities and facilities.
The office staff is always courteous and polite. I love my apartment home and neighbors.
