This place has some positives and negative. The positives things are friendly neighbors and a fair price for rent (so far). The negatives reside with the management team; they are unfriendly, unresponsive, unprofessional, uncaring and inconsistent in implementing property rules and… Full Review ▶

Rent and Apartment Condition: Apartments are old, and nothing impressive. Currently paying $1620.00 for a 2 bedroom. Parking is an ADDITIONAL $10/mo. per parking spot. Rent skyrockets (over $400) upon renewal negotiations.
