The buildings look nice on the outside, but that is just about the only good thing about this complex. The staff in the office and the maintenance people are generally unhelpful. Maintenance will do the bare minimum to "fix" a problem, which usually resulted in the problem coming up again, requiring another call. Maintenance will also treat you like you are stupid and have no idea what you are talking about. I had to call multiple times to get an exterior door fixed that was not closing/latching properly. They did not make a decent attempt to fix it until I threatened to take them to small claims court. After that, they were somehow able to fix the door perfectly. We had a problem with some very noisy neighbors, but after multiple complaints of noise past midnight, the problem was not dealt with. There are also people who watch TV/listen to music loudly with their windows and doors open, so you can hear it clearly even from across the parking lot. If you are not in one of the louder areas, the general apartment noise is not bad. I had some very courteous neighbors during a portion of my stay there, and we all got along quite well. They do not keep up the landscaping well. There are pet messes in every single patch of grass. The shrubs, bushes, and trees are not pruned regularly, so they look very overgrown. Parking is an absolute nightmare. There were many days when I could not even find a spot in the parking lot. Many people frequently park in places that aren't actually parking spots--alongside sidewalks, along curbs in the driving areas, etc. There is just nowhere to park, and most people would rather be inside the parking lot than parking on the street, so cars end up in every nook and cranny people can find. They do offer garages and carports, but at a steep price. The lighting outdoors in the parking lots is not kept up, so there are frequently very large unlit areas. The rent is one of the highest prices in the area. I wouldn't go back to this community, even if they offered the lowest rent in the area. They simply don't do anything to take care of their tenants. I moved out because in addition to all of this, one of their maintenance team was arrested for sexually assaulting a female tenant. I didn't feel safe there after that.
