I wish I could give this place negative 100 stars. Please note this complex was recently "The Elms" and is now "District 53" if you would like to search for more reviews. PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS I AM ONLY HOPING… Full Review ▶


DO NOT MOVE HERE! 512 Realty has taken over and all they've done is jack up the rent! These apartments are just the same as when we moved in and payed $300 less. The only difference from when we first moved… Full Review ▶


After six months we have to move out. I don't have a choice because my rent is going up $425. 512 Realty has come in and run all the tenants and families out. This place was decent before them and now… Full Review ▶


The new property management is doing it's best to get rid of the people that have lived here for years. I understand we were getting a heck of a deal. I can appreciate property taxes have gone up. However, the residence… Full Review ▶


I lived here for two years and I loved it. It was quiet and the neighbors were so so so nice. They look rough around the edges but they were super nice and considerate. I lived on the second floor and… Full Review ▶


Rats? Check. roaches? Check. Drugs? Check. People getting their cars stolen? Check. Noisy? Double check. You will never get decent sleep here.The neighbors are animals, the neighborhood never sleeps. Homeless bums walking around..forget taking walks. The noise is unbearable. I desperately… Full Review ▶


So far we have found one mouse in the kitchen, one HUGE dead rat under the sink, our cat killed another rat (we found its tail), one dead mouse under the couch, and then one night I witnessed my cat catch… Full Review ▶


Not just cockroaches, which are a recurring nuisance no matter how clean you are, but BED BUGS. They are found throughout the complex, and management has no intention of dealing with the problem (or anything else) on the appropriate scale. DO… Full Review ▶


I think this is a great place to live. The management is friendly and easy to work with. And the apartments are surprisingly nice, especially for the price. The neighborhood is great as well. I'm not sure what the other reviews… Full Review ▶


I have lived here nearly two years. Its been...ok the location is good it was really easy to move in free cable. However I know of 3 neighbors within my bldg have bed bugs. The guy downstairs caught 3 big ones… Full Review ▶


I had to live there because I found a roommate and shared the expenses. Do not live there for the following reasons: 1) ghetto neighborhood 2) very noisy especially early morning, trucks come to collect garbage 3) cockroaches even if we… Full Review ▶


I have had roaches since I moved in. They keep spraying, but not much you can do with a herd of children throwing food/candy all over the courtyard. They play soccer in the courtyard and their parents yell at them from… Full Review ▶


I lived here for one year and suggested to my brother to move into a unit of his own too. Things were fixed within an hour and there are signs posted that cars will be towed if there is no parking… Full Review ▶

The new manager has the personality of a plant. As you walk in the office for information or to inform her of an issue. If her back is facing you and she's typing on the computer she doesnt acknowledge your presence… Full Review ▶

I have roaches problem when I first moved in. Terrible! They are everywhere and I was irritated when I found out that they were running on clean dishes in my dishwasher. I suggested the manager to seal the gap in between… Full Review ▶


I rented my son an apartment (co-signed) and was not informed that a parking permit was required, nor is it anywhere in the lease. My son's car was towed this morning and it cost $194 to get it back. I asked… Full Review ▶


From the outside, this complex looks somewhat old and rundown and this first impression is not contradicted when one actually sees the inside of the apartments. The maintenance staff was fairly responsive and competetent at fixing most problems and pest control… Full Review ▶
