We lived at Onyx for a year. We were attracted by the low price ($500/month less than similar sized apartments in Redmond Town Center), the fact that they had AC, and that it was in walking distance to work. We figured that with our knowledge of the Landlord & Tenant Act we would be able to navigate many of the issues others were reporting about slow maintenance response and issues with move out fees. All of the issues reported are real. It is an old community and we had work orders open all the time. New management has added more maintenance staff but they are still dealing with outdated everything. The most disappointing thing was the illegitimate move out fees. They tried to charge us $210 for cleaning even though we left the place cleaner than it was when we moved in. Make sure you take lots of pictures when you move in so that you can argue your case when you move out. You may also want to insist on a walk through with maintenance before you turn in the keys. We did both and after about a dozen calls and e-mails we did get our deposit back.
Other things you may want to know:
1. Although a lot of mistakes were made while we lived at the Onyx, the staff was always friendly and they always did the right thing eventually.
2. Utilities were almost twice as much as they are in newer apartments so some of the savings in rent will be lost to higher utilities.
3. Noise from neighbors was bearable for the first 6 months but then a new family moved in downstairs and we couldn't use our master bedroom anymore because one of our neighbors snored and it kept us up at night. The floors are carpeted but that doesn't seem to dampen the sound much.
4. There are no stores or restaurants within walking distance.
Good community to live
Close to the Microsoft and current management is really good. I love floor plan of my Onyx apartment.
Great management, lovely atmosphere, cool neighborhood. A nice place to live in.
The apartments in 'The Onyx' are well designed and spacious with a lot of green and open space around. The location is great - very easy access to 520. We have a very nice and friendly staff at the leasing office. Lots of parking available for guests.
