Lakeshore Gardens is an awesome place to live. We looked forever to find the perfect place and the day we came here was the day we stopped looking. We signed a lease immediately on the best apartment I've ever had. The property is beautiful, quiet, clean,… See More

Great people, great property, and great staff. But this complex is in a flood plane. Please purchase flood insurance on fema.gov before moving in here, renters insurance does not cover flooding and if there is any chance of flooding in Birmingham area, it will go here… See More

These reviews must be written by the owner/manager. This place was built in a flood zone. It is unfit for anyone to live. You will lose your car, your home, everything. Do not move here. It should be torn down.

At first glance, it was great. Brand new appliances, new paint, freshly remodeled. . But then reality slaps you in the face, the new appliances didn't work. Bugs everywhere, bad pluming and drafty windows. Not worth the cost. See More
