      Only lived at Southgate for a handful of months but loved every minute. Made lots of friends at the pool, and had a lot of property space to walk my dog. The assistant manager was very informative about renewals and helped me the entire time!

                I would not recommend this complex to anyone. The apartment is out dated and run over with roaches,Waterbugs,spiders and earwigs. It's not worth what we pay for rent! The walls have holes. The property manager doesn't take concerns seriously.… See More >
