The apartment complex has some serious structural issues. The noises from your neighbors are very easy to hear and the insulation is poor especially with metal-framed windows. Several apartments also slope causing some doors to swing closed or open depending on… Full Review ▶

Nice park-like grounds, close to Hillsdale, and it is a safe community, but the quality of the unit is sub-par. It is an older property and repair/upkeep is unprofessionally completed, sometimes needing several requests to actually fix. Full Review ▶
