Interesting to note that my review was taken off. I was the first person ever to post a review of this particular place. I rated it very poorly and suspected the owners would try to remove it. I agree with the 3 reviewers. It was a… See More

As others have said the owners are the worst people in the world. They are horrible to deal with. They make promises they won't keep, they don't fix things unless you force them to, they have a never ending stream of superintendants none of whom is… See More

Highland commons is a nice apartment, but the landlords are very unethical. We've lived there for a few years, and the landlords regularly push the envelope when it comes to cost cutting. Examples include turning the heat off early in the spring and turning it on… See More

Owners will try to get every penny from you. They do not pay you interest on the deposit and they do not return your deposit when you return the garage door opener and keys. If you go after them, they threaten you with lawsuits.<br><br>Very unpleasant experience… See More

Don't take me wrong, Highland Commons is a great building. Rents are reasonable, building owners live in the building, so not like it is a slum. BUT: 1. Old super left for some reason and new one is constantly drunk. 2. During the summer, building reeks… See More

The carpet has never been cleaned, and its literally crunchy underfoot. The building is infested with house centipedes. We saw 1 or 2 every night. GROSS! Laundry is in the building but $2.00 per load for a tiny washer. (Dryer is 1.75). Many units do not… See More

This is the worst apartment building I've ever lived in. The building itself hasn't had a single update since it was built, and the management company takes really bad care of it while lying to you face. I regularly would need to ask three or four… See More

I lived here for 2 years. It was terrible. Dirty, overpriced, management full of lies. Beware. 1. Management controls the heat (which is included in the rent), and only turns it on if the outside temp is well below 40 degrees. Likewise, management never turns on… See More
