Resident · 2008 - 2013
These apartments used to be good quality for the price before the recession. It was filled w/ mostly graduate school students and young professionals working downtown. Since the economic downturn the population has taken a turn for the worse however. This problem is amplified by the fact that the apartments have seriously thin walls that allow you to hear everything your conspicuous neighbors are doing while wandering around their apartment at 3 AM. Whether this neighbor is one of the many unemployed that seem to be home at all hours of the day, or one of the young families with kids running around the apartments unrestricted, there isn't much chance of getting sleep. Combine that with the aging facilities onsite that creak and groan at every turn, and you're lucky to get a moments silence (or sleep) while at home. Rather than address any of these problems, the management seems happier to simply create excuses and act confused as to what could possibly be done. While some or all of this may have been acceptable at the $700/mo price point that the apartments cost just a few years ago, the now $850/mo cost, is far beyond any relation to quality that you will get here. It's a shame, because these really were a good bargain for graduate students or young professionals looking to save some money in the past. I feel bad for the friendly and helpful maintenance staff, because they really do seem to be constantly working to try and keep this place in order. But whether by negligence or just another victim of the recession, I would definitely not recommend these apartments anymore, particularly at the new ridiculous price point.
