    Affordable at first but rent increases are making it less of a value. It's a pretty place though and I love the neighborhood. Except that one time last week when cops showed up with guns drawn telling my neighbor to come out of the garage.

      Landscaping his gone okto ----. Was great when the community first opened but the landscape maintenance crew has killed most of the beds. Such a waste. Ignorance and poor oversight was the problem. Not money, until everything was destroyed. Then lack of funding to rectify.

                It was splendid. I enjoyed every minute. I was very pleased with the apartment itself. Nice new modern features. Really love how it comes with a washer and dryer. Ariana really made us feel like we are where we need to be.

                  There's dog poop everywhere. There is trash everywhere. There is cracks on the ceiling for months that have not been fixed even though we have asked. The new people who have moved in have brough the community down.

Very nice amenities and generally very clean and orderly environment. Ample parking and very dog friendly, lots of dog runs. Love the floorplan and have had a great experience here.
