Resident • 2013 - 2014 Not Recommended
I lived here for a little over a year from 2013 to 2014. In short, I didn't enjoy my time here. On move-in day, my apartment was quite dirty. I spent a solid 2 hours cleaning things up my first night. The carpet was quite dingy and there was an odd smell. The screen on the window in one of the bedrooms was broken and the screen leading to the porch was bent and didn't fit in the track. A major downside was air-conditioning. My apartment was an upper unit on the corner of my block, so sun exposure was maxed. The air conditioner technically worked, but it literally could not cool the place down in the summer. If I kept it on during the day, it would run 24/7, so I kept it off. I'd open up the windows and turn it on in the evening to cool things down. Even if it was 65 degrees outside it would still be boiling hot in the apartment. It's had me completely baffled for years. Heating was fine, but could have been better. During one particularly cold day (-10), the heater could not keep up. The temperature in my apartment was gradually going down throughout the night. It was about 60 inside when I woke up. Really, the buildings are just old and expensive to maintain. But, for what it's worth, I brought a pretty girl over one time and she described my apartment as "cute". I also got a second date with her, so it didn't scare her away. The overall neighborhood was not the greatest. Yes, cars with panel-rattling bass would occasionally drive by and there would occasionally be people talking quite loudly outside. Otherwise,the people on the other side of my walls were pretty quiet. At the time I lived there, the office staff were great. I've heard that new staff has been hired which is disappointing. I would not recommend living here. It's not the worst, and I could stand to live there again if I had to, but there are much better places.
