This location has so much potential. Unfortunately, there is a complete lack of communication and mismanagement of the property. Constant fire alarms have occurred each year. There are bugs flying in the halls from the trash room. The carpets and stairwells are disgusting. Smell of smoke permeates the halls and garage. Renters beware!

Since I moved here the office staff has been very helpful and professional. Maintenance staff is very efficient and my neighbors are quiet. The amenities are awesome. Really love the gym! My apartment is great although I could live without the light fixtures in the kitchen. Im just not a fan. Otherwise this place is perfect!

I like my layout. The kitchen is big and my unit is bright. I have no issues at all. I love the price. I cant find a nicer place at this price point! and i am in walking distance to Channelside. I do wish we had more places to eat located in the building. I see some of the retail space is being worked on so that is a good sign. I never had any issues with parking and the staff is kind. The service team is always helpful. The fitness center is plenty for me. Overall the courtyard parks surrounding the buildings (I think we have 4) are nice. Well kept and a great place to bring out the laptop and work on a nice day. Tampa has events like tree lighting and other outdoor activities in the space. It feels very alive. I have not used the clubhouse or pool but they seem nice.

Worst experience at an apartment complex EVER , dont let the Downtown location fool You . So happy to be out of here !! The place has mice , gnats (that get in your fridge) , wasp (inside the units) and nasty bugs throughout the building. All were in my unit despite how much I would clean. I moved in a week after the building opened (after waiting 8 months to actually move in despite being told I would only have to wait 1 month ) so the last thing I thought this place would have was bugs since it was brand new. At one point, I moved in with my aunt to not have to sleep there-while there was a mouse in my unit. When I called the office to advise them of the mice issue they seemed careless as can be . I was told I would have to wait a while since they didnt have pest control established yet. I had to take it upon myself to buy dozens of traps which I was never reimbursed for. Finally the mouse left the unit ( I think ?) but I was always in constant fear of their being more which caused me To sleep horribly . Several of my neighbors experienced the same issue . Martha at the front office is horrible , the worst customer service ever provided . Her attitude is just plain nasty . Juanisha and Mike with Maitnance were the only decent humans that work here . The laundry rooms are gross. First time I went to use one I found locks of hair in the washer and another time a flooded floor with disgusting water . So I would have to drive to a laundromat weekly . Visitors can only park in the parking garage until 7pm which is nuts since there over a hundred empty spaces always . This is not convenient since you have to constantly go downstairs to let your guest in if they visit you after 7pm. The guest already visiting you before then , have to move their cars on to the sketchy street and head back up . The building is already in bad shape and its only been a year since it opened . Best thing that happened to me this year was that my lease ended .
