The apartment itself is pretty nice and I haven't had too many issues with bugs. I am, however, just completely fed up with the paper-thin walls through which every noise leaks. I can hear my roommate's activities across the house even… Full Review ▶

The nice parts of this apartment complex is the entrance & pool. It pretty much ends there. Legacy is over priced, the apartments are small and unattractive, and the workers are not interested in helping you. Not to mention, there is… Full Review ▶

Legacy has beautiful grounds and depending on what building you are in, it is relatively quiet. If you plan to spend any time on your porch, you will hear I-75. You just have to learn to tune it out. It is… Full Review ▶

I've lived in quite a few apartments. This one is a good pick. It has the typical apartment-life weakness; a Tyrannosaurus living upstairs. It has all the typical strengths too; pool, gym, free maintenance. In several ways this apartment is superior… Full Review ▶
