Pre-Leasing Special $100 Off 1st Months Rent!
Collins crossing is overpriced. Yes, it is on a bus line, most apartments are. Yes, it is close to campus; a lot of apartments are. The amenities advertised are far from sufficient for the size of the community and even then are not "great". The new "gym" consists of 3-4 machines. The pool is undersized for the number of residents. The bark park is just a sloping strip of grass next to the pool. The sports courts have been in the process of being "refinished" for over a year (nothing has changed).
We had a two bedroom apartment. The master bath had a very tiny pedestal sink with no counter space. The sound from the apartment above us goes well beyond normal for other apartments; the insulation in all the walls is woefully inadequate.
They claim the appliances are somehow energy efficient BUT just running them and no AC or heat (all of us were gone throughout the day) still racked up electricity bills of $65-70 a month.
Maintenance is very efficient and helpful.
Expect to see significant rent hikes as they try to drive up the cost of rent in Chapel Hill-Carrboro. Ours would have gone up $285 if we had stayed. About $100-125 of that was, they claim, a discount that they gave us, but didn't tell us about, for moving in in October. Though they had advertised one months free rent which we did receive but is not included in the above figure. That still leaves a rent hike of $150. Which they claim is for the above mentioned "gym".
There are just so many small issues, strong arming people for renewals IN DECEMBER! "Renew now and your rent will only go up $200 not $285".
We now live closer to campus in a Townhouse for $50 more a month than at Collins Crossing, Skip this place! What they advertise is not worth the cost. You can find very nice and comfortable (newer) places just down the road and around the corner.
Living out there was wonderful. Enjoy the environment and ppl out there was nice. The office ladies made u feel welcome to be living there.
Loved living there, staff at the office always great .
