I just turned in our notice to vacate after 2 years of living at Rockledge, and we will definitely miss this place! Since apartment reviews can be all over the place, I wanted to provide my honest impressions of our time here: The Great: - Convenience to all parts of the city - my commute to Midtown and Buckhead has never exceeded 20 minutes. - Direct access to Cochran Shoals trail on the Chattahoochee River. - Excellently maintained community and amenities; staff truly takes care in managing the property. - Units are well maintained and ours was in pristine condition upon move-in. Maintenance may require follow-up on occasion (specifically with pest care and HVAC), but concerns are always eventually addressed correctly. I love the number of windows we have - we lucked out with a beautiful view of the forest. - Safe property, regardless of whether or not the gates are working properly (it was 50/50 during our time here). Generally a quiet place to live and residents are friendly. We have never experienced a break-in to our unit or our vehicles - in fact, we haven't witnessed this with any of our neighbors either. - Value for money; despite modest rent increases, our unit is still a great value considering the condition, location and size. - Utility costs are low. Despite our top floor location and our tendency to run the HVAC generously, we have always had reasonable electricity bills. Though water is split amongst residents based on unit size and # of residents (not individually billed), this cost has always been low too. - Valet trash is an awesome convenience - you will not have to ferry your trash to the compactor. - The move in process couldn't have been easier; if you have good credit, income and rental history your fees will be negligible. Though our unit was practically spotless upon move-in, the property management team was eager to solve any concern we had. Things to Consider / Negatives: - Units are older (late 1970s) so layouts are dated (kitchen is smaller with no pantry) and storage space is limited (we only have 1 full closet and a very small hall closet). With that being said, the total square footage is impressive compared to new developments and even 1 bedroom units offer plenty of breathing room. Our bedroom comfortably fits a king bed, night stands, and two dressers. - Since the property is nestled in a forest (a pro for me), you will see bugs of all kinds. It happens. When (not if) you encounter bugs, we've found a quick maintenance request will resolve the issue. Do not expect regular pest control, however - you will need to report issues on a case-by-case basis. - We highly recommend a top floor unit for two reasons: sound insulation (no upstairs neighbors), and bursting hot water heaters that flood downstairs apartments (this seems to be an issue that plagues all apartment complexes, not just this one). Again, the good has obviously outweighed any negatives and we will look back fondly on our time here!
