Resident • 2013 - 2014 Not Recommended
1. The rent covers all utilities except electric (probably $50-100 per month with $75 deposit). However, the apartment is only 15x18 feet with one bathroom, so it could be considered pretty high. For me, it was fairly convenient, with the college nearby and my workplace less than a mile away, so it cut down on gas somewhat. Decide for yourself. 2. The building was recently taken over by Wilhoit Properties, and they've done full renovations on most apartments. However, expect problems with your water heater: they replaced the plumbing, and forgot to fill the water heater tanks (so the elements are shot and blow breakers regularly). I haven't had hot water for almost the entire year I've been there. 3. See above. Office staff is rarely in, and doesn't answer the phone, except for at the end of the month. They're nice, but apologies can only go so far... Maintenance staff also doesn't communicate with the office people, and takes forever to get to a problem UNLESS you speak to them in front of the property manager. 4. Walls are still thin, and so are floors. I can hear the neighbors two doors down, on the other side of the building, downstairs. Ask for a corner apartment so the noise is cut down, and beware aspiring musicians. Most of the residents are connected to the college somehow, but there's a high turnover rate (can't imagine why: </sarcasm>). 5. Buy your own snow melt and expect to shovel the sidewalk. Frequently. The property managers don't have exterior stairwells, sidewalks, or parking lots cleared during the winter.
