Here is resort living at its finest, where luxury, convenience and an unsurpassed qualify of life combine to create the ultimate in apartment home living.
Not worth living here. For what you pay you can go somewhere better even rent a home. They advertise a clubhouse, movie theater, etc. but if you actually want to use these you have to pay ridiculous fees unless you use them during business hours Monday- Friday. If a holiday falls close to a weekend they only give you 1 day to pay the rent without late fees. They offer online payment, but charges a ridiculous fee 5% which can be over $50 just because its convenient to pay online. Appliances are not very good and they have white carpet- assuming so they can charge you for that when you move out. Friends have also reported nightmares about moving out as well where they try to squeeze as much money out of you as possible. Live somewhere else!!!
If you are a student or value your time, I would not recommend living here. I stayed here during my time during medical school under the assumption that if I paid a bit more, I would avoid having to tend to my apartment frequently. This was not the case.
To list a few points of caution:
The day I moved in I had roaches as well as other insects. This has been a recurring problem for two years.
Management would enter my apartment unannounced and set off my security system (which I would then have to deal with).
It would seem management tries to get any money they can from you and are not above contacting your bank to make false late rent payment claims.
All noise complaints have gone without action (real bummer when you have an exam the next day).
The lease is full of details that require a tenant to jump through hoops. In my opinion, it seems like a mechanism to ensure a security deposit is lost.
Complimentary carpet cleaning is advertised But I never got it. A huge amount of time was wasted trying to have this promise fulfilled.
Apartments are very loud. Units are set up so that the bedroom is adjacent to the air conditioning units (not just yours). This is incredibly noisy when you are trying to sleep.
Reservable parking is advertised, but there are no consequences to individuals parking in your spot. The towing company has been long gone.
If the convenience of an apartment gym is a selling point for you, know that it is not maintained. I even tried to clean it myself but neither restroom was stocked with soap or paper towels.
You may need to take multiple showers. The water has a smell of rotten eggs (sulfur) if it does not circulate.
A tour of the apartment might leave you to believe that all the drawers and cabinets are real and/or functional. This has not been the case for me.
For the money you pay its not worth it! When we showed up to sign our lease we werent told all the total fees until after we had signed paperwork for 20 minutes. Unfortunately we didnt have a choice but to go through with it because we needed to move the following week and NO ONE had available units.
Upon move in we submitted our checklist for repairs and fixes. The maintenance guys stopped by but never actually fixed anything. Although th front desk always gave half the information you needed at any given time and made life horribly difficult, the apartment themselves arent bad. Its disappointig that you can hear through the walls and for the money, the amenities are pretty poorly cared for to include the disgusting jacuzzi.
Move out seemed easy enough to my surprise. Thats until we got the statement of charges! They charged us for issues that were listed on our move in checklist, lightbulbs that werent out when we left, and mysterious scratches in the tub. When I called to inquire about the scratches (a $500 charge!) they said if you didnt do it, prove it. While I understand that anyone could say they didnt do something, I HIGHLY encourage you to document EVERY part of your apartment when you move in and out. They offered me a cleaning service by an outside company who are just as likely to have caused the damage but now I cant prove anything so Im screwed. BEWARE.
