DO NOT LIVE HERE. It's aesthetically decent but very expensive, and the management is extremely petty and invasive. Not only that, but on other websites they've lied and said the buildings are handicapped accessible and have elevators but neither are true. I regret the day I signed the lease here. Forget trying to talk to management because you'll be met with attitude and ignorance. Here are my examples:
Appliances barely work. Fridge is extremely loud and is never the same temperature; stove top is made of pieces that don't belong on that oven, i.e. none of the electric ranges actually fit so it's a hit or miss if it'll work; dishwasher is just a loud machine that gets your dishes hot and wet, but not clean at all. Three of my drawers just fell apart in my hands within the first month I lived here.
You are not allowed to leave shoes out on your own balcony! I had a pair of smelly hiking sneakers out there for ONE DAY and I got a notice saying I can't let them air out.
They told me my wooden patio chair was "better suited for the dining room," (a room which I don't have) and said I was not allowed to put it outside, where it belongs. They couldn't back up this claim either when asked why the chair has to go in a dining room: "Alls I know is it's not a patio chair." That was verbatim the explanation I got from Brittany. (Great grammar, better reasoning, right?)
^The list for what you can't have on your balcony goes on; i've heard that people got notices about coolers, books, shirts, etc. I mean you can't even leave out a book for pete's sake!!
They spray chemicals on the grounds a couple times a year to kill all the bees and insects that normally would help the grass grow, and then they spray more fertilizer because the grass isn't growing.
They will tell you to "thoroughly clean your entire apartment" a few times a year as well so they can send someone in to put down mouse traps. This notice will only come one day before they expect you to have cleaned - they have you scrub your apartment down so that a person can come put a sticky piece of cardboard under the sink, which takes a total of 20 seconds and does not require any sort of thorough cleaning although they require it.
My friend has had THREE (!?!?!?) bikes stolen from the parking lot. Each time the bikes were appropriately locked up to the bike rack, but management said it was somehow her fault and they would not help her at all. I've heard this has happened to many other people as well.
Above all of that, I hear my upstairs neighbors having loud sex every night.
The list goes on and on, but basically living here was an extremely expensive mistake. If you don't mind sticking to insane rules, listening to your neighbor's every move, waking up to a lawn mower or a leaf blower or some other machine every morning, having appliances that barely work, and paying hidden fees for all of it, then definitely sign the lease. If you feel like it's reasonable to be allowed to air dry a shirt for a few hours on your balcony, then don't sign the lease.
Stayed 2016 to 2017, lived solo in a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment
