All-in-all, it's a pretty good place. I really enjoy my apartment, the amenities, and the location. However, I think on-site construction has been a constant annoyance. Regular smoking in the non-smoking pool areas stops me from using the pool. The dog park also gets very,See More >

We're truly disappointed in your review. Our team spoke with you regarding our early lease termination policy and the fees associated with this process. We understand there are situations that arise in which residents need to terminate their lease early. Therefore, we have this outlined in the lease agreement. We're aware you were unsatisfied with the outlined process and fees. Please keep in mind that all our residents must abide by these terms and conditions within the lease agreement to maintain fair treatment under federal housing regulations. We'd also like to clarify that we do not incentivize reviews as this goes against all major review sites. If you'd like to continue this conversation further, we're happy to answer your questions.

Terrible. After signing a lease, being accepted, giving money orders for rent, deposit, and app fee they told me "never mind you can't move in" when I went in to get the keys (which is illegal). Her reasoning is because the manager didn't consider nannyingSee More >
