251 North Apartments
Resident • 2017 - 2018 Not Recommended
If you're looking for a safe place to live, don't move here. We moved to Atlanta from out of state last year, and looking for/trying to secure an apartment in a state you don't live can be difficult since you don't know the area. We ended up choosing 251 North, primarily based on location. We have been very pleased with our unit itself, as we have a good-size bedroom and a nice loft. However, things went downhill quickly when it comes to safety. We were not made aware before moving in that they would be undergoing a HUGE construction project, totally uprooting 50% of the parking area and the main entrance, and re-doing the whole wall that surrounds the community. This project started in about February and it still is not close to finishing. It leaves gaping holes in the wall, and a wide open entrance gate to where literally anyone can come into the community. It's not in the most safe area so that is a big concern. While there has been no gate (still no gate) my car was STOLEN from it's parking spot overnight in August. Upon reporting it to management, they were very hesitant to inform the community of this crime, and even suggested that it could have been insurance fraud. We voiced our concerns to them that they leave the community open to any passerby who may want to enter, and there are no deterrents from anyone to do so. There was supposed to be a security guard at the gate, but after we found out at 4am my car was gone, we went to see if there was one and there was not. All in all, they don't value their tenants' safety in the slightest and don't care that their normal security measures, ones that they didn't disclose would be compromised for months, are not intact. I would not recommend for anyone to move here, if you want to feel safe.
