We could not be any happier with the move process at ABA Ballard. The grounds are well-kept trendy and hip as well as clean. Michael at the leasing office went way beyond and above to make sure we got our ideal apartment and settled and just nicely I cannot say enough how much we appreciate his helpfulness and all around attitude. We are excited for the future year at AVA Ballard. Ashley & Ben

    AVA Ballard is located on a busy street, but the windows are well-constructed and the noise is minimal. The staff is very friendly and I have had no problems at all. Overall this is a great place to live and I would highly recommend it.

        The management team was fun and excited about showing the space. There were no high pressure sales strategies attempted, and it was simply about my needs as a resident. With roof top access and the best views on Market, this is the place to be. There's even Pac-man.

          Excellent place to live. People and dog friendly. Great location. Great value. I don't hear my neighbors and they don't hear me or my dog. I can walk to everything I need and my job is one bus ride away.

            Avalon Ballard has gone down hill since I moved in a little over a year ago. The rise of internal incidents has grown, the staff turnover and reduced maintenance staffing numbers have severely impacted the cleanliness and livability of the building. While the front entrance to the building is somewhat kept, the side entrance, halls, elevator and common areas are unacceptable. The outdoor dog feces collections are often overflowing, the areas around the side entrance wreak of urine. I have even seen what appears to be a gob of spit on the wall outside the elevator. Oftentimes the elevators smell of urine and finding dog feces in the back stairwells is a regular occurance. The floors are heavily soiled. And before the management has a jerk-knee response, the maintenance has communicated that they are short staffed. Additionally, I softly (non-publicy and through direct communication to management) addressed these concerns during last year's review period. If I were paying half of what I pay at Ava I would still have these strong opinions. For what… See More>

              I'm pleased to call AVA Ballard my home! The units are well appointed with modern amenities, and the location is within walking distance to the market, breweries, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. I'm a happy resident so far!

                One of the best places in Ballard to live in. Clean. Quite. Convenient. Great staff. Just perfect for a young professional in the big city to reside in. Great parking availability. Everything you need is pretty much within walking distance. Great location!

                  The Ava Ballard staff was extremely helpful with the move-in process. They allowed us to use their carts and secure an elevator for us, which made the move so much easier. The apartment is always so clean and has great amenities. The greatest part about this place is how pet friendly the facilities are here.

                    So far everything has been great! The place I was supposed to move in fell through and I had to find a place last minute. I had a moving truck outside and Kiran was able to get me through the application process and have keys very quickly. She was extremely helpful and even stayed late to make sure I had everything I needed. Thanks!

                      I enjoyed working with the community manager. All of my questions were answered and I was given extra support at an inconvenient time for management in order to ensure I got what I needed. My only disappointment was that the elevator that was reserved for move in was not labeled as such and another resident took the elevator to another floor. That may have been more on the resident than on management, however.

                        AVA Ballard is a building geared towards dog lovers. If you are not a dog lover, I recommend you find a different building to live in. The location of the building is great. I enjoy this area of Ballard.

                          Don't move here until management become more serious about the cleanliness of property. The dont not vacuum the carpet enough and the staff should always ensure that stains are removed from carpet. I am embarrassed to invite friend over to see the condition of the building.

                              This apartment community is great! Totally welcoming to our pets, great gym, awesome staff, there isn't anything bad to say about this community. I have never lived in the city, so it is taking a smidge bit of adjusting to the noise, but AVA Ballard is awesome!

                                  I moved here 6 months ago to save money. The apartments closer to downtown went up too much too fast. And I was in a one bedroom. I thought I would sacrifice when I moved in to a smaller space, but the price was right. They really know how to utilize the space. I have everything I had there and it doesn't feel smaller. I took over200 square feet off. But, my storage is great and just as comfortable. You got to see to believe. Location is close to lots. Address is corner of Market. You got to see to believe. Say Wendy's review sent you. I'll stand by it.
