Resident • 2000 - 2008 Not Recommended
I lived here for 8 years (2000-2008), and what started out as a safe and respectable complex turned into a haven for drug dealers and gang bangers in no time. The last straw was a guy living with his girlfriend in the basement of my building dealing drugs right outside my window in the middle of the day! The police arrested him when I called them, but he was back the very next week. Because he wasn't on the lease they couldn't evict him, and the apartment office refused to look into the matter. My car has been stolen from the complex, and the covered parking we paid for every month was always being used by other non-paying residents, but the office folks refused to do anything about that or give me a refund. The roof leaked, the air conditioner didn't work and they refused to replace it ($300 per month electric bills for a 600sq ft apartment!!), and the maintenance guy was not trained and had no clue what he was doing. Never ever ever live here! I've heard from former neighbors that it has become even worse in the past two years since I left, and they now rent to people on house arrest and don't bother to check into anyone's criminal background. There was even a sex offender living there at one point.
