When we first moved in 3 years ago, the management was spectacular, the maintenance was impeccable and we genially enjoyed living there. In the last year or so they every one that worked in the office has either left or transferred… Full Review ▶

I have only lived at eaves for the past 6 months but I think I have a pretty good idea of its pro's and con's. I'm lucky enough to live on the top floor so noise is usually not an issue.… Full Review ▶

Where to start.....The noise level in our apartment is AWFUL. The problem is mainly with the poor quality of the apartment building itself. It is old and the flooring between my apartment and the one above us is paper thin. When… Full Review ▶

I would not recommend moving to Eaves Columbia Town Center. The building is old, the bathrooms are old and the updates were clearly only done in the kitchen. You will be able to hear your neighbors walking, laughing, surround sound, playing… Full Review ▶

Like everyone else here says, avoid this place. Eaves tries to squeeze every penny out of its residents, and the rents are high for what you get. Don't be fooled by the base rent quote you see on their lease; Eaves… Full Review ▶

I lived in a three bedroom apartment for three years. The amount charged for rent would go up 100-200 per year, until I was finally forced out due to the rent increases. I bought a four bedroom home with 3,900 square… Full Review ▶

We lived here about a year ago when it was still Symphony Woods, just as the transition to The Eaves was taking place. The first 3 months or so were ok at best. The walls are VERY thin so when our… Full Review ▶

1. Too close to Merriweather Post Pavilion, you can hear the concerts loud and clear. 2. Maintenance doesn't fix anything. I've had several problems that they've just told me I have to live with (extreme condensation on windows, leaky AC units,… Full Review ▶
