I'm not even a renter here, but I spent five minutes and I really don't like this place.

They don't have a security gate, so from the beginning I was questioning whether this was even an option.

I had a list of apartments I wanted to check out today and I brought my camera with me so I could remember what each one looked like. I don't trust the photos available online, because most of the time lighting and camera angles are used to make things look better than they actually are.

When my fiance and I walked into the leasing office, both of the staff members stared at us in confusion. I told them we wanted to take a look at one of their two-bedrooms. More staring. I told them I believed the one we were interested was around 900 sq. ft. To this one of the staff members replied, "Okay, but why do you have a camera?"

I explained, she called her boss, and then told me that I could see the apartment, but I could not take pictures. I told her that was fine, but she told me that I had to leave my camera in the car.

There was no way I was going to leave a $900 camera in the car of a parking lot with no security gate. We left and crossed Foxborough apartments off our list. I still cannot get over how rude they were!

I went to to check this place out a few weeks ago and they let me take video inside with my phone...

I have to agree with Mike. I have lived at Foxborough for over 4 years and I have had nothing but positive experiences with the staff. I love living here and would never think of moving anywhere else. This is just a great community to live in. Even though I've always felt safe, it is reassuring to know that there is a police officer living here and serving as our security officer. I really cannot say enough good things about this complex.

It is definitely a new age. Everyone so spooked by cameras and the internet etc... And everyone is playing hardball with fees, bills and the like. It's a different world. But I just renewed my lease here and have found, in my personal experience, the staff and maintenance to be pretty vigilant. They have responded to every question or issue I have ever had. It might just be because my mom & dad raised me to treat everyone I meet with kindness and to always give them the benefit of the doubt. I do like that they have an Irving cop on duty here, but I have never had anything messed with. Not even on my patio (which faces the pool on the ground floor) I suppose security gates might give some people a feeling of security, but for me, they just remind me of burglar bars on houses. I feel like I must live in a dangerous place if I have to look at bars all day long. That's just me. When I was a kid delivering Pizza's in old East Dallas there wasn't one complex that I could not get into. And once your in, you can take your time poking around cars knowing that there is never a pass code to get back out. My stock answer to living here is always, "For the money I am spending I am getting extremely good value and it's very quiet and comfortable" - let the "He must work for them" comments commence.

They must be paying you Mike Owens to give them good reviews because I find it odd that you are the only one that replies. The lady was right not to rent there because they are truly a piece of work at the Foxborough and one day they will get what's coming to them.
