Reviewed 08/16/2012
I'm disabled and needed a rental unit with an elevator and secure basement parking, and this was all I could find in Arlington but it's a stretch when the Legacy calls itself a luxury apartment complex. It does have some luxury features, such as the two… See More

We have lived here for over 2 years, and have been very happy. Pros: Great location in Arlington Center, next to the bike path, Spy Pond, sports fields, playgrounds, as well as all the amenities of Arlington Center. 5 bus lines run directly in front of… See More

I am a current resident at the Legacy apartment complex. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone. The apt units are spacious and new , the carpet changed everytime a new tenant moves in , the appliances are from 'kenmore' and are of the highest… See More

I was quite pleased during my tenancy at the Legacy at Arlington. The apartments are spacious, well-built, modern and closely located to a variety of shopping and restaurant choices. I looked at many places in Cambridge, Allston, Waltham, and Lexington and choose this complex based on… See More

I spent about 16 months in The Legacy while in grad school. Coming from California, where nice apartments are abundant, it was a bit of a shock shopping for an apartment in Boston, Cambridge, and nearby areas. Most are old, not in particularly great shape, expensive,… See More

I moved in the day they opened (actually toured the place in a hard hat before completion!) and overall was very pleased with my time there. There were some construction glitches (kitchen drawer blocked by oven, poorly painted walls) but they've done a lot to fix… See More

Rented at the Legacy because of its relatively recent construction. You pay a premium to live in a new, elevator-service building with garage parking, but it´s still a bargain compared to what apartments cost in the cities of Boston or Cambridge just down the road. <br>… See More

We had a great experience at The Legacy. It is a great building for a young family-- easy elevators, fabulous location, and helpful staff. Of special note, Dave Crowley, the superintendent, is a wonderful asset-- he was incredibly helpful and did a tremendous job making sure… See More

The Legacy is a nice complex right on the bike path. It is expensive ($2200 for a two bedroom with parking garage). The floors and ceilings are very uninsulated and noisy. You can hear people walking around upstairs no matter how lightly they´re walking. The management… See More
