"Don't Make Our Mistake"
Basically, the Lion’s Gate (so-called) “Luxury” Apartments are six buildings of shabbily constructed, poorly managed, second-rate apartments nestled in a swamp, for which you will pay some of, if not the highest apartment rents in Genesee County. The constant plague of water problems from sitting in wetlands causes a never-ending ordeal for residents of dealing with leaks, moisture and dangerous black mold. The front security gate is always open and never staffed. The security doors at each building often malfunction, and many of the parking lot lights don’t work, making it feel very unsafe especially at night. The elevators break down constantly. The apartments are stocked with poor quality, and sometimes what appear to be used appliances that break down continually from normal everyday use (our family went through three dishwashers in less than a year). The front four buildings look quite stylish from a distance, but upon closer inspection, you’ll easily see facades falling apart, and balconies breaking down. The back two buildings were obviously thrown together far more cheaply with even lesser quality materials, and lack even the ornate appearance of the front four. The landscaping is sketchy at best. We had calf-high weeds growing around building six, which was the only greenery in what was otherwise a huge mud pit where grass had once been. Most of the brick sidewalks in front of the first four buildings are uneven, broken and crumbling. The manager, either at the behest of the owner, or at least with their consent looked me right in the eye and lied to my face without hesitation. When I began to post complaints on the online residents portal and then created the “Residents of Lion’s Gate” Facebook group, the owners retaliated against us by refusing to negotiate a new lease (for which we were demanding a reasonable rent concession), and forcing us to move. Moving was actually preferable to staying, except we had to do it at the last minute, forcing us to scramble. Luckily we found a beautiful and virtually brand new townhouse at the nearby Chatwell Club development, where we are very comfortable and happy. Lest you think any of this is “sour grapes” on my part, I invite you to do your own due diligence. Look at the videos, photos and posts on the Residents of Lion’s Gate Facebook page which will stay up and you can join any time, or simply Google terms like “Lion’s Gate Mold” or “Lion’s Gate Apartments Problems” etc. and you’ll find plenty of corroboration. Instead of looking too closely, and investigating thoroughly, we fell for a “Move-in Special” offering a free month on a 14-month lease and regretted almost every day of it. As I said, don’t make our mistake. But if you do, you can’t say you weren’t warned.
Stayed 2016 to 2017, lived with family in a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment
