Don't do it. The office staff has always been very nice which gets you to rent here. I repeat, don't do it. Some of my issues: 1. Walls are thin, we know much about our neighbors' sex life that we didn't… Full Review ▶

GENERAL REVIEW ~ 2008 to 2009. APT COST-VALUE is POOR. UTILITIES-- The water/sewage is billed directly by the rental office. THEY ADD THEIR OWN ADMIN FEE! Our average is $40-55/mo. Frequently, the WATER is shut OFF for hours, up to a… Full Review ▶
