They advertise a 1br for $585, however it is not available, they do have one for $1000.
They state you can get on a wait list for the 1br.
I have tried for the 1br since August of 2015.
They always advertise it, it is never available

Hello! Thanks for reaching out to us again about our apartment availability. We have over 10+ floor plans that range from $585 a month to $1075. We are always 100% occupied, which is why we start leasing our apartments for next August right now, because they go rather quickly. As I previously explained, we are happy to have you apply for the $585 floor plan that will be available August 2018. Since that is our most popular floor plan, it is the first to lease up months before the August move in.


- Declared Menace to Public Health and Safety by the State of North Carolina in 2016
- Fraudulent charges for repairs (complaint filed to NC Real Estate Commission)
- Illegal charges at move-out (complaint filed to NC Real Estate Commission)
- Dangerous conditions on property (fallen trees take months to remove, large holes covered only by a small piece of wood, hypodermic needles once in parking lot for months)
- Gym used and vandalized by non-residents
- Pool used by non-residents and their children
- Lots of crime (a man tried to follow me into my apartment; a neighbor was robbed at gunpoint)
- Notifications not given for repairs and some inspections
- Notifications rarely given for packages, even perishables
- Manager is rude and uncooperative
