TLDR: do NOT rent here On paper, this apartment complex seems like it would be great. Nice location, apartments look nice, near the grocery store and relatively close to campus. However, the group who owns it now sucks (they're called Laramar) and you get what you… See More

The heating system in the apartment building 5550 S. Dorchester does not work well. Office staff could be more courteous. It is relatively expensive. There is no parking. It would be nice to have a gym and community hall. There is no sense of community. See More
