Resident • 2009 - 2012 Not Recommended
I have lived at Empire Village for almost 3 years now & the management has changed about 3 times & the owners have changed twice. When we first moved into our apartment it was FILTHY. The freezer had mold, the toliets had mold, all the door frames & bedroom ceiling fans had thick dust on them & the carpet felt uncleaned. When we complained about the house being dirty, they did come in & clean the dust & freezer. But at the time the rent was a great deal, so it wasn't too much of a concern. Just recently though our lease expired & we were planning on renewing so long as they kept our rent around the same price. But to our astonishment they raised our rent $100 & said if we wanted to sign a lease they could take off $10. Seeing as we have been good tenants I felt this was extremely unprofessional. The new managment also decided that they will not fix anything inside our apartment that they see as "Everyday" easy fixes. So all the ceiling lights have to be replaced under my dime. I'm renting a place that I must fix everything in it, & for the price I am now renting it for I feel this should be included. Other things that bother me, my new car got damaged within the first week of me having it because (I am pretty sure the on-site management/care taker) a truck hit it on the apartment primises & when I called the management about it they said they couldn't do anything about it. The parking in general stinks & now we must have parking permits in order to park. Overall I like the apartment itself, layout wise. There are major design flaws in the original contruction. The coat closets are not insulated so you loose a ton of the heat during the the winter, when you go to put on your coat it feels as if it has been out in the snow. Also, all the windows are poorly insulated & in the begining we had TONS of leaks, which they had to come fix multiple times. The toilets are constantly clogging or not working in general, no matter what style of toilet paper you use or how many times you fix the inside plumbing. The yards are ok, nothing too special. Weed control is an issue though. At the moment the price is a high for the quality of the management & the apartments themselves.
