The property itself is "up and coming", which translates to having homeless wander the streets regularly and crack-shacks for neighbors. Fortunately, the apts are gated and have fob entry required at every door and elevator, but this gets super annoying. The parking is ample in the garage, but there is nowhere for guests to park. They have to risk the streets or park on the grass in vacant lots. Outside isn't very well maintained, the pool always has left over garbage from parties and the lights and pool shower are currently broken (6/23/12). Since this place is pet freindly, poop and fleas are EVERYWHERE!! I am a dog owner and its disgusting and unsanitary. I feel horrible for my dog when he walks outside. The office is stingy with pet-waste stations, placing only a few in very incovenient spots (even one right next to the community grill, which is such a HEALTH HAZARD!) I have lived here since they first opened 3 years ago, and they have been through 3 terrible management companies. The newest one, AMLI, is now spending $$ on "upgrades" but so far no real problems have been fixed. They added lights to the exterior and put hardwood by the elevator banks (which don't match and make everything echo- what a waste). Now AMLI wants to charge an extra $300 per month for our renewal. Let me tell you we started paying only $1500 for 12 month lease in a 2/2 and now they want $2100. They are NUTS! WAY OVERPRICED!!Yes, the apts are great from the inside and it is close to las olas, but come on, seriously!?? This place is not worth the trouble. Right next door Alexan Solmar (which was built by the same developer and sold to a diff mgmt co) is leasing for $200 less for similar units.
