I moved into this complex before it became "The Carlyle". Don't let the fancy name fool you, this complex is a dump that has been decorated. At least when it was Riverhill, its prices matched its appearance. Now, the management has "renovated" (painted over mold and made cheap fixes to expensive problems). There are cockroach problems, frequent leaks, maintenance entering your apartment without permission, and water is completely shut off unexpectedly. The new management is unfriendly, unhelpful, and uninformative. Maintenance almost never responds to requests, and when they do, they come in, take a look around, and say they'll "be back later to fix it"... good luck getting them to come back. Fixes, appliances, and renovations which have been done make the complex look nice but are not well done and quickly cause BIG issues.
I read the bad reviews of Riverhill before it was The Carlyle and decided that since it was so cheap and the location is good it might be worth the trouble. But I was wrong then and since the Carlyle has come under new management the conditions are much, much worse with FAR too expensive rent. Bottom line: JUST. DON'T. LIVE. HERE.
Took a look at the apartments. Not a nice area. The are under renovation but they look like the hero.
