Good staff who will make it easy for you to get in, I would like to mention specially Biljana as she is very courteous everytime. I enjoy my building 4 as the neighbors are very nice and no disturbance at all. The Laundry room is kept clean all the time too. For maintenance it could take a while to get things done.

    I would rank it as ok. It is close to work for me which is nice and rent is pretty cheap. They have updated a few things like new doors but nothing major. I was disappointed when I first moved into my apartment because it had not been cleaned prior to me getting my keys. There was paint chips all over the carpet and you could tell that the carpet had not been cleaned or vacuumed. I notified the front office about my issue and they said they would have my carpet cleaned for me but I had already moved in all of my stuff which would have been another hassle to shift everything around all over again. The neighborhood for the most part is pretty quiet. The apartment itself if perfect for me. It stays really warm in the winters and nice and cool in the summers so that has been great. My biggest complaint would be response time for maintenance. I have had to wait months for things to get done which is pretty ridiculous considering I had some pretty bad leaks from my shower faucet. I had called multiple times and sent a few emails until I… See More>

      I'm not impressed. My upstairs neighbors' air conditioning unit leaked down the inside of the wall causing a huge stain on my ceiling. To fix it the sprayed white spray paint on it. They didn't removes drywall to check for mold. Health issues here. My ceiling isn't even white so it looks awful.

        Water issues, bad water for 4 years. The problem is too high of Radon. Took 5 years before some kind of water cleaning system was installed. There also have been numerous occasions that the water has been shut off as well. For about 2 years straight, building 4 would not have water at least three times a year

            The apartment community land is really nice. The traffic sounds is noticeable but they did a good job for people to not hear as much in the apartment. I am able to walk over 2 miles without much traffic. It's pretty quiet and there are friendly people.

              Quiet and very livable. Haven't had any problems besides the neighbors upstairs are loud sometimes but other than that it's pretty good. It's my first place and I'm glad I'm in a good place for my first time.

                It's been very quiet since I've lived here but it looks like it's changing now. Which I'm not too happy about, some of this residents are too noisy. One major thing I think should be considered is a laundry room in all the apartment units. This is because when winter comes is hard sometimes to go to the next apartment to get your laundry done and one last thing is that around summer there should be some benches out there on the grass so (residents) can sit out sometimes.

                  Good management, but have some noisy neighbors. We had a water leak and the emergency on call guy got here very quick and sorted the problem out fast. Overall a good place to live, with the exception of elephants living above us.

                          The apartment was very clean when I moved in. It's pretty spacious considering the rent. It's not a bad apartment, however, the internet is a terrible. During a time where many people are working/going to school from home, it is extremely important to have decent internet. Not only is the internet slow, there are times when it just doesn't work at all. In addition to that, it can be difficult to reach the front office by phone. It is such a major inconvenience for those who can not go to the front office during their business hours.

                            Most things are fine, but there is a distinct lack of response to some key issues. Internet speeds sometimes plummet with no response from the management; fire alarms ring for no reason, and are not replaced; and when key fixtures are down for days at a time, no compensation is ever offered. We are just expected to go along.

                                    The unit I'm living in is very quiet. I didn't realize how important that was when I first moved in, but I now am very glad I don't have noisy neighbors. There are only a couple of dogs and they don't yap. Their owners walk them regularly, on a leash, and the dogs stay quiet.

                                          It's good for the price but the neighbors can be really disrespectful. I have personally lived in the community for almost 3 years and have had to deal with horrible neighbors ever since I've lived here. Definitely not renewing my lease.

                                            The experience has been underwhelming. I am a college student who needs the internet to work and it does not for the vast majority of the time. This would typically not be an issue but the apartment complex onky allows you to use the service they provide. In addition to that I have had a maintenance request in for something that could be fixed very quickly for almost a month. The staff is great and the apartments arent bad but its hard to overlook these two very improtant aspects of living here.

                                              First of all this is a good community with very few problems as far as I have seen. The grounds and buildings are maintained well and are visually nice. The buildings do have security doors so not just anyone can walk in with a key or being buzzed in by a resident. The apartments have been maintained relatively well with upgrades and improvements done as needed. The staff in the leasing office are always nice and helpful and attentive to your needs or concerns. The property was incorporated into the City of Rockford in January 2020 but I'm not sure there was any benefit to that. My biggest complaint is the internet service which started off okay but has gradually gotten worse to the point of where I'm extremely frustrated as it has become very unreliable. So, if the internet is important to you (like it is for me) then it should be a major point of consideration before moving here. In this age of being heavily reliant on the internet nobody should have to worry about whether or not is it going to work on a daily basis.

                                                  Still waiting on that 'emergency maintenance' to return my call. I have so many broken things..told they would be fixed and still haven't. This place doesn't care about us! I have found paraphernalia for drugs outside. My daughter can't run around because of the poop everywhere outside!
