Staff and Management Overall, the staff is nice and helpful. However, I would strongly avoid the Customer Service Specialist at Foster's Landing (it's ironic that he's supposed to specialize in customer service). I dealt with him a couple of times when… Full Review ▶
Been here for a while, but now I've been forced to move on - no one can afford annual rent hikes of 15%. The place is turning into a short-term rentals for the folks who need a few months stay. Does… Full Review ▶
HORRIBLE APARTMENT AND MANAGEMENT .. AVOID IT AND SAVE SOME MONEY .. Full Review ▶
After living here, I would not recommend it. Sure, they painted the buildings, so now they look like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups without the orange wrapper. Ugly color schemes. I guess it was the cheapest paint because nobody else wants to… Full Review ▶
We are present tenants, and like living here a lot. We took the time to check out a lot of other apartment complexes in this area, and as we needed one that allowed pets, and we felt that we needed washer/drier… Full Review ▶

I have been a resident of Fosters Landing for 4 years. I have seen it go downhill in the last two years. It has become a transient community. In my years there I have had 3 neighbors move out both upstairs… Full Review ▶

I lived in this complex for 4.5 years. The staff (leasing office and maintenance crew) was very friendly, responsive, and professional. There was plenty of parking, neighbors were friendly. My 1bd 1ba unit had a great, spacious layout. I couldn't have… Full Review ▶

First of all, were the tenants made aware that this complex is 20 years old? We moved in, but were not the first renters, in 1989, right after the '89 earthquake. The rent was expensive then, $1200, compared to our apartment… Full Review ▶
The staff is rude. The units are fake. They have serious mold issues and the tenant mix is down right scary. The rents are way over priced $2000 for a 1.5 bedroom. You can rent a house with a yard for… Full Review ▶

Strange tenants, Horrible management. All they want is your money your complaints, request, and safety issues will go un answered. For the money you can find a much safer and nicer place, especially if you have kids. They are older buildings… Full Review ▶
DO NOT MOVE HERE!!! Foster's Landing at first glance seems to be a quiet, clean, updated complex with friendly staff. That's what I was looking for when I moved to California. One of my co-workers suggested Foster City as a good… Full Review ▶
UPDATE on 09/06/11: Pros: The new black appliances, designer-looking cabinets and granite-looking laminate counters and stone-looking linoleum floors give it a nicer, updated look to the apartment. It's not the real deal, like real granite or stone tile floors, but it's… Full Review ▶

Easy access to 92 affords crime, and saw some suspicious activity around the complex. Cop cars speeding by, etc. If you fulfill your lease, and don't complain about anything you will probably think nothing of your time here, but don't expect… Full Review ▶

Dishonest, deceitful, disgusting, and I'm only hitting the highlights. I've lived here over a year and it just gets worse. Way over priced. Paper thin walls. Less than adequate maintenance. In fact, small stuff like toilet mechanisms like toilet tanks that… Full Review ▶
I would strongly advise against renting from this establishment, or company for that matter. Their business ethics are questionable, and they are not against using bullying tactics. They have no respect for your rights as a tenant, and they bank on… Full Review ▶

Someone obviously has a vendetta against this place. Perhaps it's a former or current tenant that has had a very bad experience with the management team or it's a former employee that's been let go and is bitter.
