Couldn't be happier with my experience with Griffis South Waterfront. I just transferred within the building and the staff help make the process as painless as possible. Staff is super helpful, caring, friendly, the building is quiet and well kept, and the prices are very affordable… Read full review

Move in was easy, kind of strange to go through an ownership change. The fireplace being broken through the entire winter was a joke and should be remedied. Coffee machine is a nice touch and I appreciate how dog friendly everyone is.

Security is a joke here. There are no cameras in tenant parking area - only employee parking and lobby. Have had my car and fiance's car hit and damaged multiple times and 2 bikes stolen. Management does not seem concerned with these issues. See More

As soon as Griffis moved in, the rent and garage fee increased. I'm considering moving. It's an older building so increasing the garage fee when there is no added security is great for Griffis and bad for residents.

Thank you for your feedback. Our goal is to present a positive, professional image at all times. We strive to deliver a consistently positive experience. We are uncertain about the package you are referring to and we would like to gather some more information from you.Please contact us at 503-274-2300 at your earliest convenience. We do love pets here but not necessarily what they leave behind. We rely on residents to pick up after their pets, but unfortunately that doesn't always happen. We are aware of the situation and have taken steps to address these concerns so it should not be an issue any further. However, if you have information on specific violators, we would love to meet with you to discuss. Thank you, Shellie- Community Manager
