Resident • 2009 - 2010 Not Recommended
I rented a 2 BR apt and could not wait to leave. The apartment itself is not bad. Large kitchen, but overall a waste of space. Nice balcony. Decent sized rooms. The carpet was very poor quality. Walls were very thin. I did not hear the neighbors next to me, but was constantly awakened by the neighbors upstairs. With windows closed I could almost make out entire conversations. I could very clearly hear them fighting (including foul language) and "making up" if you catch my drift. Complaints to the office did not help. Trains are very very close and that may or may not be an issue. The toilets are some kind of special toilet that REQUIRE 2 flushes. If you do not, you will have an overflow and the office will hold you liable for damages. Even when you do flush twice regularly, they will tell you it's your fault. My toilet overflowed 2-6 times a month. A few times I was not able to get them to come look at it immediately and other times I was told I just needed a better plunger. They did come out and address it in a timely manner with the maintenance crew, who would clean the line and it would work well for a while and then the same problem would happen a week later. I found some of the people at the leasing office difficult and unprofessional. Be very careful if you have a dog. The on-site manager watches EVERYTHING you do. My suggestion is that if your dog does not do its business, bend over and act like you are picking it up because they are watching and they will accuse you of not picking up and will threaten eviction. You MUST have your waste bag visible at all times, even if you think you are outside alone. My car received minor damage when it was sideswiped in the parking lot and there was a break-in to a few cars while I lived there, but mine was not affected. I would rent from them, but only after serious consideration and be warned that they will watch everything you do and will make you pay for the slightest infraction. I have lived in apartments before and never had any issues so this was an unfortunate surprise. Best of luck.
