Resident • 2013 - 2018
My husband and I were young professionals who lived there for 5 years and paid our rent on time for 5 years. The apartments are priced very well and have a good location but unfortunately the apartment managers are the most incompetent and vindictive people you'll ever meet. If you move there I'd highly suggest you look into your legal rights as a tenant. But I will warn you, they really only want tenants that will give into anything. They don't have a real plan for matienance requests, it's just random. Plus usually a good portion of matinence is untrained. The head doesn't like trained people because they talk him out of cutting corners to do the cheap job instead of the right job. Access to the pool was inconsistent when I lived there. There were only 2.5 summers that it was open out of my 5 years. The lifeguard was good but if he doesn't come back they're too lazy to post a job opening. Also stay away from the 5th floor, we were told this right when we we were looking at the apartment over 5 years ago. So yeah they know the roof was busted for 5 years and have yet to fix it. Oh another point about the management they're almost impossible to get ahold of. I had countless potential tenants asking me for tips and I couldn't Give them any as I was walking in the front, because I didn't really know how to reach them. Oh so there is a pro, you won't have to deal with management usually! But if you need them you also can't reach them. Also a general observation I realized after moving out, I used to have very dry eyes for the past 5 years. I tried humidifiers, drops you name it. Now that I moved out I have no problems whatsoever. Also I heard that some tenants tried to start a tenant association but they shut it down. Pretty positive that's illegal. We got our deposit back but many do not. For the most part the residents are very quiet and nice. I did have to listen to a few domestic violence issues in the past but that can happen anywhere unfortunately. The apartments themselves are pretty outdated and cheaply furnished. Heat is okay but you don't have any control of it. The windows suck so I highly suggest putting that shrink wrap insulation during the winter.
