Durham's got it going on. From baseball to great cuisine to shopping to our favorite farmers market, we are never bored here in Durham. Trinity Commons Apartments boasts one of the best locations in the Triangle Area. We are directly across from Duke Hospital on Erwin Road. Living here, you can walk directly to the Duke University campus, Hock Plaza or adjacent retail and restaurants at Lakeview. You'll be close to I-40, I-85 and NC-147 with convenient access to anywhere in the Triangle. Durham has so much to offer from the beautiful Sarah P. Duke Gardens to fun Brightleaf Square and American Tobacco district to funky 9th Street. We love it so much we had to show off the Durham scene all over our website. Hopefully it will entice you too to call Trinity Commons Apartments in Durham your new home.
Lease terms are variable. Please inquire with property staff.
I have lived at Trinity since June 2016. It has been a wonderful experience.
Trinity cannot be topped when it comes to amenities. I had a list of what I wanted in a apartment community. Trinity offered every item on my list and then some.
The maintenance staff are exceptional. There is very little lapse in time once you submit your request. They are courteous and professional.
The leasing team has changed twice since I first moved in, but I have no complaints.
The apartments are quiet. You rarely hear noise coming from your neighbors.
My 4 year old grandson lives with me. He is the only child that lives at Trinity. Trinity does not offer anything for children or teens to do here.
I would still recommend Trinity Commons.
Very bad dangerous mold in the apt. People working there was super. This is a great place to live except for the molds and our neighbor there had bed bugs.
Trinity Commons is truly excellent! While it is known as being one of the 'pricier' apartments in Durham, you truly do get what you pay for here. The location is ideal, the apartments are beautiful, and the amenities make it feel like a resort. Over the past year, the office has really stepped up its game and tried hard to include fun/unexpected perks such as free tickets to Durham Bulls games, food trucks coming into our parking lot, discounts on Enzo's pizza, etc. Everyone in the office is wonderful, but I especially want to recognize Henrietta and Andrea for the work they do.
If you are at all involved with Duke Hospital, this is easily the closest place for you to live from there. If you are hoping to walk onto Duke's West Campus, it's about 15 minutes from here to the Chapel. There are a lot of people walking around this area to commute to campus for work during the week days. We get one complimentary parking spot per resident in the garage. (The fact that we didn't have to purchase Duke parking passes made this an even better value.)
It's worth noting that there is a bit of construction on the Downing Street side, but it seems like they're relatively close to completing that anyway.
It feels like most residents here are around the 22-35 age range, but I have seen plenty of more mature residents around as well and I think that TC is a good place for them too. I would even say that a small family could live comfortably in a two-bedroom. Also, lots of residents have small (quiet!) pets.
The amenities are just spectacular. I know some people who have moved here just because of the gym alone. The only thing that surprises me is that I hardly ever see anyone else using the sauna/steam room/hot tub! The resistance pool gets some usage, and the outdoor pool definitely has people around it on sunny days (although never to the point where I had trouble finding a chair). They also offer really spacious storage closets for reasonable prices.
The office is managed very poorly - frequent mistakes!. In the time I've lived here there have been 3 managers and 2 security companies.
The parking situation is horrible. The parking spots are largely made for small cars, there aren't enough spots for those in the first and second floors, and there isn't a penalty for those who park over the white line.
The gym treadmills are constantly broken. They allow undergrads to live here who are rude and noisy; the office doesn't reign them in.
I am satisfied with most of the things in this apartment building, but a few things bugs me. There are a lot of students and they think that all the rooms of amenities are libraries where they should study. First, I didn't mind too much but it starts to get annoying than you can't go and play poker in the poker room friday night because somebody is studying there. Also I was told that there are no residents under 21 years of age. But that is a lie.
