Save yourself the trouble - this place is overpriced with incompetent management. Despite having reasonably thick walls for an apartment complex, many residents are obnoxious and will play music and make noise well into the night on weekdays and weekends (most… Full Review ▶

Two words: Overpriced and Lousy ! The management team at this location are incompetent and will charge you whenever they see the chance. The noise is pretty much aweful! I can hear everything and there is no privacy. I can hear… Full Review ▶

Good Things:- Nice place to live with Family and closer to Waltham Bad Things:- 1) Price is High and always give renewal notice with atleast $150 to $200 price up for old residents. No Negotiation policy as no one will listen.… Full Review ▶

The apartments themselves are nice (with the exception of the large, extremely heavy window pane that fell out and almost severely injured me on one occasion). Amenities are good and they are pet-friendly, although they require that you walk dogs to… Full Review ▶

The apt. is nice. Clean and spacious. Very convenient in a lot of ways and safe. However, the one and only complaint is the noisy college kids that roam these grounds. Understandably, these are young kids so they will be noisy,… Full Review ▶

Biggest positive: grounds/building well-kept; emenities good. Biggest negative: the office staff, which cares SO much more about units rented than clients served, ranges between incompetent and dishonest. Do not believe anything they tell you unless they put it in writing!!! We… Full Review ▶

Unfortunately, I can not give Longview any sort of recommendation. Although the "luxury" apartments were adequate for the price, the management of the complex was atrocious. The assistant manager Lindsay Vaughn could hardly fog a mirror and likely didn't have an… Full Review ▶
