So... First of all, most of the people who wrote a review are tenants and don't really understand that their landlord is responsible to repair items in their apartment and the management cannot do it without his approval. I live in the building for a year.… See More

The last post was obviously left by management. "I love my apartment", "great facilities", "luxurious", "I love this place", "view", "indoor parking". Who writes like this? Indoor parking? Is this some new technology or something? This complex has garage parking that you pay $235 per month… See More
