This place is beautiful, very spacious, updated and gives you a lot of bang for your buck and the staff is extremely kind and accommodating. My only major concern is the noise. The community is quiet but I think they made the walls too thin because when you're inside your unit you can hear what your neighbors are doing sometimes in too much detail. One time I couldn't sleep because one of my neighbors was on the phone and talking so loudly I could hear every word. A few other times I could hear my upstairs neighbors being intimate with each other: their voices, creaking bed, and all. Thank God none of my surrounding tenants have loud kids or dogs. If they would just pad the walls and floors better to fix this one issue, this place would be near flawless.
Apartments are noisy, no problem in hearing what your neighbors are watching. Cannot walk through the grass without stepping on goodies from the pets. In the mornings you cannot even drive to the trash compactor because of people parking their cars in the spaces. Also be careful if you are out at night, sometimes you will see people sitting in their cars that you know do not belong here.
We've been pleased with our new 3-bedroom, ground floor apartment. We're in the back of the building and find it's relatively quiet and very private.
One person above is exceptionally flat-footed. I hesitate to ask that she wear some thick slippers. Sounds like she walks on her heels and she walks a lot. Can't figure out where she's walking to:-)
Garbage and recyclables area looks great, but is not monitored and very badly abused by uncaring residents. People continue to throw pizza boxes on the floor instead of in the compactor. The bins are overflowing and so many other miscellaneous items are put in the collection room that they sometimes makes it impossible to open the door and enter. The whole room needs to be emptied more frequently. Frankly, it's not adequate for a complex with this many apartments.
I have been here since July 2017 and have not had any major issues with the property. The individuals in the leasing office have been extremely friendly and they are prompt to come out when maintenance concerns arise. The only ongoing issue is the trash compactor breaks and residents still leave their trash. I wish there were more recycling options outside of cardboard boxes. Great location and neighbors are friendly.
If you wanted a luxury apartment that had the smell of trash in the air , water sprinklers that leave water spots all over your car and internet that constantly goes down this is the place for you.
The staff clearly doesnt teach the new residents or current on how to use a trash compactor nor do they enforce dog policies as you walk through the property dogs arent on leashes as well as land minds all over the grass
