Loved living at the James! It was centrally located, very clean, modern building. The staff was amazing and helped with everything along the way. Would highly recommend.
In all honestly, The James Apartments is the most INVASIVE place I have ever lived, and Ive lived a lot of places. Every other month they do work. All of the access panels are in your closets and built behind places you would need to put furniture, and every other month they have to get to ALL of them. Its like Im re-moving into my apartment every other month with how much I have to rearrange furniture for them to access them. I would never recommend living here, ever. Its such a waste of money. The workers are inconsiderate: wear dirty boots that leave tracks you have to mop up after, set up ladders and set their equipment on all of your furniture. I have NEVER experienced such lack of regard for personal space. I feel like I live in a dorm doing routine security checks, making sure no one is smoking weed or having sex. I would recommended literally ANY crummy complex/unsafe neighborhood over this because at least living in squalor youd have some privacy
We are moving in three weeks, but changing the air filter for the 6th time this year just couldnt wait and neither could checking our water pressure??
They tout convenience and I can say very plainly: thats a lie.
Contemporary. Chic. Elegant.
