this place isn't the best places to rent from. they charge 953 and the place isn't worth that much. the apartments are very aged cabinets peeling, old appliances, old stingy bathrooms. Definitely not worth what the rent is. Look somewhere else… Full Review ▶

The first commenter nailed it all. The place is a complete craphole. Mgmt doesn't do anything about anything ever. Made a big mistake by resigning the lease. Most likely will break it just to escape the crappiness. Full Review ▶
