      The complex has recently changed ownership. Unfortunately, the quality has gone down since. Our first interaction with the new ownership was being presented with a chance to renew our lease at a higher rate. That happens, but it seems as if we are paying more,… See More>

            Pretty great community. Lots of parking space, big hallways (perfect for moving in), and perfect size apartments. The community consists of a lot of families and college students. One of the most soundproof apartment complexes I've visited

                          it has been under several management companies which is annoying. Also water and trash use to be included but no it isn't. It is frustrating because it is an estimate on water usage not actual usage. Nice size bathrooms
