The model apartment was quite nice and would be very comfortable. However, the amount of monthly rent could/would be a deterrent.
Pros: Staff is very friendly. Maintenance is prompt (most of the time). Visitor parking is available if you request it in advance. This complex is pet friendly and has a fenced it area for dogs. Their are bus stops and grocery stores in close range. This is a nice location away from downtown. Also, the duck pond is pretty cool :)
Cons: New neighbors, who pay the same rent as us, had renovations prior to moving in while we waited for ours after living here for over a year. Laundry system is COMPLETELY faulty. We were given renovations which caused more problems than solutions. We received "new" appliances (washer and dryer were inoperable, one of the burners on the stove doesn't work) and the renovators left a hole in the wall and mutiple broken bathroom doors. They took the handle off one door, another wouldn't close and they didn't replace them until a maintenance request was submitted. This is in addition to the fact that they left the attic door open and light on after thay left. We have submitted 2 seperate maintenance requests to fix the appliances and, only after the second, somebody came to take the serial numbers to contact someone who can fix them. It has been almost a month, as of me submitting this review, of having these broken appliances. This normally wouldnt be a problem, as we can wash dishes by hand and do laundry on site. It costs $5 to obtain a laundry card with no money on it. It costs $3.20 to wash and dry each load of laundry. However, the laundry card machine, which is used to load money on your laundry card is currently broken and has been for more than a week. I put laundry in the wash and went to load more money on the card in order to dry my clothes but I can't. So now, even though my new neighbors have had access to free laundry in their own apartment months before me, I am left with paying a lot of money for wet clothes. Laundry card machine is at the main office instead of laundry. I would add more but I have limited characters.
We really enjoy living in the Briarwood community. It's a great value for the space we get. The bark park is a wonderful amenity for dog owners since there are no fenced in yards.
If I were to suggest an improvement, it would maybe be to add more amentities like a bigger grilling area with more grills or a pool.
Very Satisfied living here!
Consistently have been impressed with care during snow storms.
