          The apartments are modern and well maintained for the price point. Neighbors are nice. The complex is close to the highway which is great for commuters, also close to many shopping centers, pool is nice in the summer.

                      Overall it's a good safe community to live in. Maintenance request response time is a little slow for certain things. The rent is a little pricey as well but it's overall worth it to pay the amount we pay to live here.

                        Apartments are nice and spacious. I would consider these to be more "modern" instead of "luxury" apartments homes. The community is quiet for the most part. There were several items that needed to be fixed once I moved in but maintenance moved quickly to fix… See More >

                                    Community is fine . Charging parking now is a problem. Feel it is rude for visitors to pay for parking when they visit. There was always a place to park for tenant and visitors . Seems that these pay parking spot are used very little.

                                        It has some things it can work on, guest parking, smell in the hallways, update appliances especially since the rent is going up but overall a good community. I like that they have community activities.

                                          I haven't been here long but so far my experience has been extremely positive. Management has been very helpful. Service requests have been completed in a timely manner. The unit itself had new flooring and carpet.
