The worst! Don't move here. The people in the office are only nice until you sign. Then they completely change. The apartments are discusting. Cabinets are all broken and have an inch of dirt built up on them, that you can not clean because it's unlaminated particle board. Only one coil works on my electric stove and is so wobbly that it's a hazard to use at all. Every time I take a shower yellow sticky gunk pours down my walls. It collects under the door molding, making it stick shut. And staining my counter top. I had to buy a swifter mop just to wash my walls and ceiling after every shower. What's left on the cloth is revolting. Water is so bad I am on my 3ed shower head. Maintenance said it's old sediment coming from the pipes(what!) My scalp feels sandy from it. The car wash down the street is cleaner than the "laundry room." $3 for a 1/4 load that only has cold water, and a dryer with the temp cranked up so high it wil shrink anything you put in it. My tub has leaked since I moved in soaking the carpet, in the bedroom, hallway, and closet. Everything I keep in there now stinks of must and mildew. The maintenance people have said they were going to have it cleaned, but that was months ago. Don't leave anything out in your apartment, because they let themselves in without any notice. And don't even leave a note that they are in, or were there. One day I came home and they were just inside my place. When i move I'm going to have to throw away my brand new vacuum, from the corroded carpet (what is this white stuff.)The hallways are old and gross.... They are calling it a remodel when actually it's just paint and a few paintings hung up. Rent is now being raised so they can put new siding up. Just giving an old broken down building a face lift, so they can charge "the average rate in the area" and essently rape there tenants. Smells like marajawna all the time, and I have to pound the walls every Weekend from the loud bass drounding out my television. Wish I could give less than a 1 star! DO NOT RECCOMEND!
Forest Ridge Manager11/12/2015
Forest Ridge Apartments has been under new management since last year! A major renovation campaign has been initiated since this past spring 2015. Our primary focus is gutting out the apartments and renovating them. Meanwhile we are approximately half way through completion of putting new siding on the buildings, installing new landscaping, and painting and carpeting of building hallways. Water conditioners have been installed in every building, heat systems have been updated, plumbing repairs fixed, and major pool repairs completed! Our continued renovations will include upgrading laundry rooms, storage rooms, and installing all new windows at the community this coming January 2016. There is a lot going on and some residents, such as yourself, may still reside in an older style apartment. We agree that there are some issues in these apartments but since we are renovating all vacant apartments these problems will discontinue. We are discouraged to hear of your issues and problems but we are optimistic that the potential for this community is great. Renovations like ours, of course do not happen overnight but we are committed to this work, its completion and proud of our changes so far! We are aware of the bad reputation that this community had in the past and we are working hard to create a new one that you and everyone living here can be proud of. Our office team is always available and my door is always open for any of your concerns, complaints, or suggestions. I encourage you to contact me directly at (248)651-0042 or [email protected] Thank you!
