The living space itself is nice, up to date, however the common areas, lobby, elevators LITERALLY Stink! Resident's complain and then it smells like overly strong odorizer on top of stink. They do have regular cleaning staff, but don't keep up enough. Off site maintenance is slow and inconvenient if you need them- its a hassle. It's LOUD in the area- people/ motorcycles, bar throwing out glass bottles at 2 am...then the garbage pick up early in morning.. City does a poor job cleaning streets in this area where people litter, dog poop and throw up...watch your step.
The quality of the apartment (i.e., appliances, counter tops, floors, cabinetry) and in-unit amenities (i.e., HVAC, washer/dryer, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and refrigerator) are all great. What held me back from an excellent rating was an electric stove, which for anyone who cooks a fair amount is not ideal, lack of an outdoor space, location (both of the apartment complex and my unit within the complex), and availability of building personnel (no one on site 24/7).
The building is extremely well maintained and offers really great amenities.
Love the apt and the location but it gets pretty louds with motorcycles and the music from the bar downstairs.
The staff is GREAT, I love them to death. However, the overall craftsmanship of the building is average at best, the building constantly smells of animal urine due to this mishandling of pets by other tenants, thought the building keeps a regular cleaning staff schedule. The workout room and commons area is nice and well maintained. There is a policy that you have to pay an separate utility bill for water, garbage and other misc. items, however no one understands the billing process.
