Resident 2014 - 2015

We have lived at Renaissance at Uptown Orange for almost 1 year. We will not be renewing. While my apartment interior is BEAUTIFUL and we receive compliments every time a guest comes over, there are many downsides to this apartment complex that are too troubling to ignore. My biggest concern is safety. We have had multiple instances of homeless people trash-picking, wandering the complex, asking for money/rides, and most recently LEAVING PILES OF DIRT in front of resident's doors. I know this complex claims to have security, but in an entire year, I haven't seen them once. I don't feel safe outside of my apartment at night and I always carry my pepper spray. Aside from that, the noise level from Chapman (the main street adjacent to the complex) is not a problem. You will hear sirens going to UCI, but that's kind of the point of sirens. It's not a big deal. The noise that IS obnoxious is the idiot with the loud motor cycle who intentionally revs his motor to set off car alarms in the parking structure on every. single. level. It echoes into every apartment in the tower and the numerous car alarms are known to go off for 30-45 minutes afterward. As for parking, you get one spot assigned to you. You can also purchase an additional parking (eventually, once you make it to the top of the list after 4 months and follow up 5 times) for $50/month. Yes, I pay $600/year to park my car at home... Most households have 2 cars and all the guest parking is completely gone by 4:30pm everyday by residents who don't have an additional spot. As much as I love my apartment, I hate this complex. I think this place could be really great if they were able to up security and somehow relieve the parking nightmare.
