I lived here for a year in a two bedroom apartment. I had some good times and some frustrating times. Things were OK for the first 6 months of the lease, but then construction started on the other side of Wolfe (my apartment used to face Wolfe road) and suddenly the quality of living dropped. There was way too much dust and noise from the construction. I would wake up at 7am every day while the old offices of Phillips were demolished. Residents were not even spared on saturdays. Things may change once the construction is done with.<br><br>Plus points:<br>1) Nice spacious floor plans<br>2) Decent facilities -- Good pool, hot-tub and gym (although a bit small).<br>3) Neighbours are quiet upper middle class types because the rents are high enough to keep away more noisy/younger people.<br>4) Good, courteous office staff. They were nice throughout our 1 year lease -- even after we had moved out.<br>5) Excellent maintenance done within 24 hours of reporting problems.<br>6) Got a fair bit of our deposit back (about 50%)<br><br>Negatives:<br>1) NOISY -- located next to a fire station; fire engines are loud and can be heard several times a day. You can also hear your neighbours walking; probably has something to do with the fact that this is apartment complex was built in the early 90's.<br>2) Construction across the street make some locations (along Wolfe Rd.) in this apartment a no-no.<br>3) Parking -- they have a strict parking program with one covered spot and one permit per 2 bedroom apt. There is almost no guest parking. I almost always found a spot in the back (a 5 minute walk to my apartment).<br>4) Expensive -- Their apartments are about a $150-200 premium over comparable units in Sunnyvale.<br><br>Overall I would recommend it to people who can find an apartment located towards the interior of the complex where it is quieter.<br><br>P.S.: The apartments facing Arques Ave. may also be noisy and are close to power lines. It may be in your best interest to avoid these as well.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
