Restored Warehouse! Was $1,599; Now $1,499! 1 Left!
Absolute worst staff! Do not expect to have any issues resolved. "Luxury" living includes constant maintenance issues, mold, termites, animal waste in common areas, overflowing trash, and many more. Excellent location but not worth the headache!!
've lived here for a couple years now and have made quite a few friends in the building. After conversation with most of them, it has come to light that their base offer at the end of your lease is to increase your rent by $250. If you say you're going to move out, they immediately contact you back with a $50 offer. This has happened with at least 4 people that I've talked to. If you plan on living here expect atleast a $50 rent increase per year. The lady at the office tried to justify this by saying that it was less than moving cost so it was a better option than moving. They are basically banking on the fact that you won't move to raise rent by a $600/year.
The cable bill has gone up from $65-$90 with no change in plan. The trash bill has gone up from $20-$45 with a reduction in service (used to pickup 5 days a week, now pick up 3 days a week). I've also heard mixed comments from residents about whether or not they are forced to pay for parking. I wasn't but a few of my neighbors have.
The gym is packed most of the day so good luck getting a workout in the morning or evening hours. If you're not in a parking spot by 8pm, good luck finding parking. On top of that, my hallway smells like cigarettes (6th floor) and nothing has been done about it. Overall, this place is overrated and over priced. Only thing that got me here was the central location but with other options popping up around Durham, I'd avoid this place.
Only ten minutes from Duke University
