I loved living here for 2 years. It was a great community with to-die-for storage in the pantry and walk in closets. It was generally pretty quiet - except some late night talking in the parking lot since my apartment looked over it. It was safe,… See More

The first year is great and they offer you good deals, but watch out. After that prices sky rocket year after year. Not really worth it. You could get more for less in other places.

Not worth it. No pool or fitness facility. Not enough storage space. Traffic is loud on Lake Lansing. Management changes too much. Not enough parking or lighting.

Rent was a bit high, amenities were limited, sometimes noisy, staff was overworked and burnt out. In other words, your typical apartment. Management had a BAD temper; seems like everytime I was around the office a shouting match was going on.
