The area is very safe and quiet with enough parking for everyone.
The management does a great job in making sure that the apartments are nice, welcoming and well maintained. They also pay close attention to the landscape, and they do a great job at it as the place looks fantastic.
With the refurbishing of Columbia Pike just 2 blocks south of the apartments, a brand new Giant had opened its doors recently. There are several Thai and Spanish restaurants around the complex, as well as Irish and American that came in recently. Not to forget, dry cleaners, hair salons, CVS, RiteAid, 7Eleven, Dunkin Donuts and McDonald. Everything within five minutes walk.
Bus stops are everywhere if you need to catch a ride to several close by metro stations (Pentagon, Pentagon City, Clarendon or Ballston Common).
If you want a nice and affordable place to live, at Fillmore Garden you are in for a treat.
I would not live anywhere else.
