Resident • 2015 - 2016
For how low quality the apartments are, it's pricey.
In comparison to other apartment buildings near by it is a bargain...though you get what you pay for of course.
The cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom are an old wood grain straight out of the 70's. The appliances are outdated as well. Not much to brag about aesthetically but I wouldn't give it the review I am solely based on the cosmetics of it. The bigger problems would be the management.
Twice since the beginning of 2016 we have had our stair wells redone- which is great because they were old and rusted- however the first time our walk-ups were being redone, they regret to inform me that they would be replacing them so when I went to leave my apartment to go to work there were no stairs for me to walk down. I called the management staff and they said whoops sorry we forgot to let your building know this would be happening. So 4 hours later, I arrived late for my shift at work.
Not long after this happened, I received a notice on my door explaining that on the 21st they would be repainting the car ports so from 7am-7pm your car had to be moved out of the carport. So on my day off, on the 21st, I wake up at 6:30 to move my car and find a parking spot in our very limited number of uncovered spaces, and move my car. At 1pm I see that still no one has started painting the car ports and they didn't end up beginning painting until the next day later on the 22nd.
I like and respect the fact that management is trying to update the exterior of the apartments and maybe attract more of a variety of tenants but they are very un-organized with how they have gone about doing those updates and renovations.
I do like that the apartment building is close to Harmons and VASA fitness and many necessities. It is also dog and cat friendly which is a huge bonus and there is definitely enough grassy area for pets.
All in all I wouldn't recommend these apartments to a friend. I believe that once these renovations are done, management will be a little more on top of their game however until that happens it's just not an ideal living situation for me.
