I love the maintenance workers and groundskeepers, they're so amazing and so kind-as well as the contractors we've had come in. The only thing I can't stand is how dog owners act. Our courtyards have short ivy bushes and they're covered in dog poop because no… See More

If you're willing to walk a distance it's not overly difficult. The parking in front of the complex is usually open but sometimes it will be across the street. On street sweeping days it's pretty impossible to find parking unless you're there early. On weekends cars parked along Burbank Blvd are often side swiped by drunk drivers. I recommend parking on Louise or on Addison the street behind the building. Your car will be safer there.
