      Amenities and furnishings are very nice, but the walls are very thin and it's never quiet. Location is convenient and close to several bus stops. Overall a nice apartment with minimal flaws of major issues.

                It's been fine. Only lasting problem has been the washer but it shouldn't take as many service requests to fix as it has taken. It still doesn't work half the times we've used it. Leaving our clothes soaking wet. But in general it's been fine.

                                            The staff and faulty are all very nice, however they are terrible at communicating and answering emails and calls. The move in process is also very chaotic and difficult. I struggled a ton with all of the forms and leases before actually being able to… See More >

                                              Apartment is fine and it is one of the good ones in the city. Would've been better if the move in dates for the apartment to be convenient for the people moving-in rather than the management. Management team is not completely clear about the lease… See More >

                                                  The lease signing and move in process was a breeze. Staff members were helpful and diligent towards both signing a lease and moving in.
