Love the community. The building is great too! It's a nice little community and it doesn't feel like a hotel like other apartments out there. Instead, your apartment feels like your home and the building feels like a little community or neighborhood.

                        The property is not well maintained. For the rent we pay to live here, the property should be cleaned more. The management team are lazy and the lead manager is always complaining about how overwhelmed she feels. Find another place to live.

                                              We are in a short term furnished apartment rental. Building mangagement has been very good to deal with and prompt in replying to questions etc. Apartment is quite spacious for this type of short term rental.
