Resident • 2007 - 2008
I lived here for a year while in college, and had nothing but terrible experiences...
Where to begin? I didn't actually get to see the exact apartment prior to signing a lease (was only shown the model) and so I was not happy to find my apartment still had the ten-year-old emerald GREEN carpet, worn thin and ragged in noticeable spots. I complained, and their solution was to cut out the ragged spots and replace them with new carpeting (the same color.) SO this meant I had squares of new green carpet in random spots in the middle of my living room intermixed with the old green carpet. It looked like astroturf squares on a lawn. OH! And the "new" carpet they put in my living room? It actually came from the corner of my bedroom closet. My bedroom closet carpet was replaced with normal, beige actually-new carpet. Horrible.
These apartments are sooo noisy too. I called the cops on my neighbor on multiple occasions, because his yelling at his girlfriend was so out of control. He also punched through the glass next to his front door, and instead of getting it replaced, he patched it up with the cardboard from a case of beer. Classy!
The final straw was the flooding. I woke up one night to water streaming through the ceiling in at least seven different places in the apartment. The way they handled this problem was horrendous. Instead of actually cleaning anything, or ridding the apartment of moisture properly, they just set up fans to dry it out. There was literally standing water and they still never replaced the carpet. They did let me out of my lease after that, and I couldn't get out fast enough!
