It is a quiet neighborhood, the people for the most part are respectable. The apartments are big, the maintenance team is good. However, there are major problems as it relates to the upkeep of the community. The complex looks great from the front gate to the leasing office, but as you move away from the leasing office you will begin to see the obvious landscaping issue, particularly as it relates to waste management and to a lesser extent the quality of the lawn greatly decreases. There area major problems with waste management. The dumpsters(both recycle and none-recycle) are usually always full and the trash spills over. Some residences just drop their trash on the ground, thus making the area very filthy. Basically, there are always trash on the ground even after the dumpster truck picks up the trash. Thus, as more residence witness trash on the ground, more people feel compelled to also drop their trash on the ground. There are lots of raccoons searching through the garbage - which is definitely a huge hygiene problem. The garbage truck does not come around often enough within a bi-week, and these dumpsters usually fills up within the next couple of days after they are emptied. So, if you like cleanest you will have major issues with the property - stay away. The rent is very high, so there should be enough resources to be dedicated to the upkeep of the complex.

Hi there, thank you for your comments. The site team is aware of some waste management issues, and is in contact with the vendor as well as residents to have them rectified. They have also ordered larger recycling receptacles; hopefully this will help alleviate any issues! We appreciate your feedback. - Lindsay, Bell Customer Service
