            Great Experience while living at The Bowen. However, it is very embarrassing to enter the building with guests and smell "WEED". These apts are expensive -smelling weed is a disappointment. Thank you.

                      It's a beautiful community with lots of amenities, however it comes at a premium price. The corporate ownership has to decide about how much they will *invest* in keeping this community in top shape. The management team, staff, and maintenance are second to none. It's a little difficult to use the amenities but mostly because you have to be prepared to walk to the front and must have your key fob at all times. This works for many residents. We have some issues with the parking gates not working for months at a time, and the pool not being open much (only June through Labor Day from 12pm-8pm when there is a lifeguard around). Other than these things it's a pretty great place to live.

                            Convenient to live in also the cookies are nice but I'd have to say my favorite parts would be the movie theater and the office, the gym is good but could for sure use a bench press and and possibly a squat rack

                                Building security is not up to standards. Initially we had in home security systems that was removed with no replacement. The garage cameras do not work and access to the garage through the back gate has been blocked off for months from the main street. There has been an ongoing concern with mold/condensation around the vents in my unit. Lastly, sometimes maintenance shows up quickly and other times it takes week to months to get a repair order resolved. I placed a repair order in July/September which was assigned to Dennis. There were no updates on the portal until I placed another repair order for the same item. My repair was not fixed until another random maintenance man came in to fix another item in November and discovered what Dennis put on the ticket was not correct. Two good things about the community are the access to amenities and community spaces. The gym has adequate equipment, and the usable space is readily available when needed.

                                  Overall the community is nice and friendly. The Bowen is pretty safe and usually very quiet. I've been here for almost 4 years and I have very little to complain about. My only suggestion would be that staff be a little more approachable and less standoffish. Otherwise great place to live.

                                          The Bowen is hands down one of the best communities that I've seen with the exception of those that are brand new! From the 9 ft. ceilings, plank flooring, fireplace, balcony, granite countertops, spa-like tub, huge walk-in closets?and the amenities! ?? Totally amazing! Dorian Pringle, my LIVEBE Ambassador provided excellent customer service. He was courteous, knowledgeable, took time to answer my questions, and was extremely thorough. Well done!

                                              I toured the community twice before making a decision and I fell in love with the amenities and the floor plans. It was hard to pick just 1 floor plan but Dorian helped me narrow down based on what I wanted in my new home.

                                                  The office staff and maintenance staff are always kind and helpful. Maintenance responds quickly, tends to the issue quickly and professionally, and have never left any mess. We would definitely recommend the BOWEN community to our family and friends.
