Burke Shire Commons is certainly not the worst apartment complex in the area, but I would not recommend them to anyone unless you were absolutely desperate. During my three years as a tenant of Burke Shire Commons, the community saw massive… Full Review ▶

I'm very sad to see what has happened to these apartments. The complex is doing away with the affordable rent program. In doing so, they have replaced some flooring, a few new appliances and charge outrageous rent. Lets not forget, these… Full Review ▶

Avoid at all costs. Find somewhere else to live in. They hook you in with low rent, then hike it up when you renew your rent. The charge you for everything. Parking is extra, numbered parking is extra, apartments are dirty… Full Review ▶

This apartment complex is one of the worst I've ever rented from, period. Crumbling, moldy, mossy, ROACH infested, bad smells, smokers everywhere. Too many bad things to list here, and I frankly should have moved out right away but was too… Full Review ▶

I lived here and moved out. But when you move out they rip off your deposit money. They don't make any sense and do a bad job dealing with your bill. My apartment carpet had already been a few years old… Full Review ▶
