There are assigned parking spots for the tenant. All buildings have the convenience of assigned parking in close proximity to the tenant's residence. Additionally, there are a great many spots marked with a œVat or near each building and throughout the complex. If you're looking for a readily available guest spot at 2am, I'd argue that no matter where you go, you won't find many. However, my nephew (23) was living with me for some time and he rarely Had any issue. The most he had to walk from his car to the apt was from the next building
