The Briarview Apartment Homes have the best location! We are directly across from University Place's newly built Towne Centre which includes the brand new state of the art library. The Number 2 bus, which is one of the main bus lines in the Tacoma/Lakewood area, stops at the street in front of the property. It travels from downtown Tacoma (where you can connect to all major routes) through TCC and ends at Lakewood Town Center. Less than a mile away is also a park, Grocery Stores, Pharmacies, Specialty Shops (Trader Joes, Dollar Tree, Big Lots, Hallmark, GameStop, and more), Banks, Restaurants, and so much more. We have a lower crime rate than most neighboring communities and have the best schools. Our property is lush and green, with lots of trees and lawn. The property is landscaped weekly, maintaining the park feel. Hwy 16 is about 5 minutes away. I-5 is about 10. Hwy 512 and JBLM is about 15. The apartments themselves look great! They are being updated to brushed nickel everything. We are renovating; installing beautiful Solara oak cabinetry, doors, and most other wood surfaces (i.e. trim around doors, windowsills, etc.). For energy efficiency, the apartments also feature double-paned windows, which keep heating costs down.
