The new renovations are very nice. Almost all surface fixtures (save the bath tub/shower units) are brand new, including all cabinets (not the medicine cabinets, but thats minor,) real granite countertops, the wood-burning fireplace fixtures, lighting, new wood-style flooring, etc.
The management company hired a great interior designer to give the units a sleek facelift, and Im very pleased with how modern everything looks.
Also, the staff is super friendly, and is very quick to respond to any maintenance requests.
The club house is very nice, and they serve free Starbucks k-cup coffee! (They open at 9 though, so I too bad I cant grab a cup on my way to work. But still a very nice feature!)
The gym is super well-equipped, with rowing machine that uses real water, stair machines that look like mini escalators, various weight machines, mirrored ceiling, and a separate room where kids can play while the parent works out.
The rent rate is superb for the square footage AND you get an attached garage.
I love the mud room. As an apartment dweller, I really appreciate this storage space.

The apartment buildings were built in the 80s, so the base skeleton and the internal systems are old. Management can very quickly solve any ant problems.
While the renovations are very nice, it seems like they are banging out the renovated units as quickly as possible so they can be filled up ASAP to start making money again after spending a lot in modernizing, so the workmanship is shoddy.
Some switches didnt work or could not be turned off, some outlets didnt work, leaky plumbing.
When you move in, they give you a list you can fill out within 3 days, and the maintenance crew will fix them all within a few days, so if you do move in, be critical and list everything.
One of the main maintenance crew will give you sass if you have a lot of maintenance, so I became quite handy myself, which I guess is a positive :)

Theres my honest review, I hope it helps!

Couldn't be happier with my townhome! The staff made it so easy to transition into my new home and have been nothing but courteous and quick to get back to me since day one! Maintenance is also really quick to respond too. So far I have no complaints and am happy I signed a long lease! It's a shame to see so many negative reviews because my experience has been anything but negative. Trust your gut, see for yourself and then decide! I'm happy with my choice.

I wish I could give this place a -5 star. All around terrible place. I'm not a high maintenance person or have impossible expectations.. but in all honesty this place rates below 0 stars. Save your time, your money, and energy and go somewhere else.

Don't move there, the incompetence knows no bounds. They're renovating units to look amazing but are built on terrible old bones. We moved into a unit that had been updated but soon, cracks appeared in the walls and the stucco ceiling began to peel. Maintenance is fast to respond but slow to fix anything (if at all), even the maintenance guys say the ownership is terrible and cheap, and if anything breaks and is replaced, it'll be replaced with the cheapest possible materials (or used from another unit). When the sliding glass doors break, they are replaced with doors that can't be locked from the outside.

The walls are paper thin so if your neighbors are listening to loud music, so are you. If they have kids, you'll think they're in the room with you because you can hear every word if someone's speaking louder than normal. Same goes for all the construction happening, and there's a lot. Insulation probably exists but you wouldn't know it. Upstairs rooms are several degrees colder than downstairs and the walk-in closet is either freezing or boiling thanks to the uninsulated attic access panel. We had to replace our own weather stripping on all the doors, we could see light through closed the front door. Management's VM box is always full and they never email or call back.

Having been a resident for several years, I have seen this place under different management and my fair share of staff changes along the way so I can personally say that I understand where others are coming from. I will be honest I had some concerns when this place went under new management again and found out renovations were going to occur as I wasn't really sure what it meant for myself and my family; however I have been pleasantly surprised with how the community has improved as a whole and all the changes that have been made in such a short amount of time. The previous management company let this place fall apart and left my HVAC system (among other things) in poor shape which meant during the hot summer I was one of those residents who were waiting for relief but I was patient and my issues were resolved and we haven't experienced anything to that extreme that since. Just recently we experienced our heat going out this winter and maintenance was incredibly fast in response and my apartment was back to normal within the same day which is an amazing improvement in my opinion from previous management/maintenance.

In regards to the renovations, the exterior alone is a complete face lift to what it once was. It feels like we live in a whole different community in comparison to what it used to look like. With renovations and new management there is always going to be some hiccups along the way and I can say there's been a few here and there but I've found the maintenance team to be fast when it comes to work orders and the office staff to be friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to work with me in regards to issues and discrepancies. I could've done without some of the construction headaches in the beginning of the year (nails left behind, noise, and debris) but the majority of that has nothing to do with my experience with the staff and team as a whole, so I'm not going to deduct points for things out of their control. Overall, I'm very happy!!
