The pictures are misleading. The only thing good about the apartment complex is the location. Rent is way too high. You are going to end up paying Xcel, and the office for utilities. The office charges an additional $50-$70/month just for "utilities" because of how old the buildings are. Expect to pay a lot more than the base rent they tell you. The management and service teams are awful. They do nothing to accommodate issues. The Property Manager position is a revolving door, changing every 4-6 months. The service team is constantly entering your apartment. Most of the doors are broken. Village Green does not care to replace them, which is a fire hazard. The complex is CONSTANTLY under construction, they hire crews to start work before 8am. Snow removal is TERRIBLE, they wait 24-48 hours to plow and clean off the sidewalks. The gym is not clean, and the equipment is broken. There are better places to live with better management.
First of all, I will start with the management. They are top notch and go the extra mile to solve any problems you encounter. We had several problems after moving in and they fixed or compensated us for each one. The location is perfect. Right next to Como Park and central to shopping and entertainment. They accept a wide range of dogs, both by weight and breed. This is not common among most properties. I will now focus on what needs fixing. The HVAC system needs upgrading. It either blows hot or cold. You have no control over air temp. The controller on the thermostat does nothing. You can control fan speed and on or off, that's it. Utilities are very expensive. I lived in a 3 bedroom home before coming here. That home averaged for sewer and water, 105.00 every THREE MONTHS. Here the average has been 70.00 a MONTH. Four people living in a 3 bedroom home, compared to 2 people in a one bedroom apartment. Electricity is very high. The problem being the HVAC that runs continuously. It never shuts off unless you shut it off. Huge waste of power. Viewing your apartment before leasing, you can't. Their policy is to show a model and not the actual apartment you are renting. The models are newly remodeled and that is not always a good representation of what you are renting. That was the case with us. If I had seen this apartment before hand, it is highly unlikely I would have gone through with the lease. Other issues are ones you would have going anywhere. People abusing property, not picking up after their pets, etc... Again, the new management is very hard working and seems dedicated to fixing this property's issues. They've done a lot, but much more is needed still.
We plan to apply for a lease here at The Burlington. Very informative and helpful staff! And the grounds appear to be very well maintained. Thanks to Victoria!
