Gates of Owings Mills
Resident • 2008 - 2011 Recommended
i lived at the gates for over 2 years, and overall would recommend this apartment over most of the others in owings mills. at the same time i will say no place is perfect, and this may or may not be the apartment for you depending on your circumstances/preferences. that said, i'll list what i consider the pros and cons of the community: pros: - quiet, safe community (never had a break-in, car-theft, etc the entire time i lived there) - excellent leasing staff in terms of manners and respect - maintenance responds to problems either the same day or next day, are very friendly and do their best to fix the problems in a timely manner - good access to shops/mall/highway - most of the neighbors are friendly cons: - parking has become tighter with addition of more residents; if you can afford it, it may be worth it to purchase a garage - lack of snow removal in the winters (prepare to have no parking if it snows more than 6 inches and you come home after 7pm because they will not remove the snow until several days later) - appliances are aging/loud and difficult for maintenance to fully repair - do your best to rent on the top floor because noise can be an issue, especially if your neighbors have school aged children - no business center and small gym with old equipment overall, i agree with another poster who commented on the price. for the price i believe renters should get more than what they actually get at the gates, but compared to other apartments in the area it is still in a league of its own.
