      Terrible. No parking, you have to almost fight for a parking place, some apartments have 4-5 cars coming and going. People that don't even live here take paying renters parking. It does no good to complain or reach out to the office here, no one… See More>

        Thank you for the review. We are extremely upset to have gotten this review and can tell that you are very frustrated. The parking is an issue as the property was built in 1969 and people had many less cars back then. We consistently work with people to ensure that they only park 1 car per adult but it is difficult to monitor. We accept anyone who meets our qualifying criteria to live in our communities - that is the law. That being said, we do not have any section 8 vouchers who have qualified to live on our site. If you have a wqork order, we would love to address it - we complete most work orders within 24 hours. You can place it in person or online in the resident portal.

                  At the beginning of my leasing contract, the community was well kept, clean, and maintenance was efficient. Sadly, changes have been made at the community and the place is going down hill. The laundry room is always filthy with faulty machines.

                      It's a great community, helpful manager and great people. The maintenance is severely lacking and would rather ignore a job then actually complete what is required of them. Even after multiple times asking they chose to ignore it.

                        Great location and friendly staff. But not worth my headache of living in a roach infested apartment along with the "impossible" intrusion of weed smell. AC is pretty outdated, I have to keep it on 72 so it can feel like 75.… See More>

                          It is a nice and quiet complex. Everyone respects each others privacy. Also it is very close to the mall, grocery store, and school transportation stops. I also like to have the pool directly behind me and the laundry unit next to me.
