I'd like to share my experience at Briarcliff City Apartments. My husband and I used this apartment as an occasional place to stay while visiting our daughter who recently moved to Kansas City. Our apartment was vacant most of the time so we placed a drop cam for security purposes. Unfortunately our apartment was broken into by another resident who got a hold of a master key and copied it. We were in our Illinois home when I received an alert that the drop cam was picking up movement. The police were called, the perpetrator caught and a report was filed. I immediately called the property manager as the police verified a master key was used. The property manager did not return my phone calls for three days. My concern was not only for my apartment, but the safety of the other 500 residents. When I finally spoke with the property manager she asked me to keep the incident quiet.
This apartment complex has a nice location however, I was greatly disappointed in the way the manager and Town Management handled the situation. The truth of the quality of a complex is demonstrated when an emergency or break in occurs. The way the complex handled my break in was unacceptable! Choosing not to notify tenants when the negligence of a master key is involved is not in the best interest of those living there and puts them at risk. There was no way anyone could predict how many copies of the master key were made. It took more than a week for the complex to begin changing the cylinders of the locks.
I write this review so that others can take into consideration the safety, trust and honesty of this complex. These are concerns that should be considered when looking to rent anywhere. How easy is it to communicate with the property manager when there is an emergency? Does the property manager show mutual respect to tenants? Do they prioritize the safety of the tenants? Unfortunately this is lacking at Briarcliff City Apartments.
Stayed 2016 to 2017, lived in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment
"Kansas City Luxury"
The Briarcliff City Apartments are luxury style apartments located just North of Downtown Kansas City. The complex has four main buildings with each building containing a foyer, designated parking spaces, and elevator access. The interior of the apartment was fabulous with hard-wood flooring, crown molding, granite countertops and walk-in close space. I lived in Briarcliff City Apartments for two years before relocating and enjoyed my time there. The environment was safe and the staff was friendly and accommodating.
The complex had a gym, pool and hot-tub which were great extra features. The pool and hot-tub overlooked the cliff edge and offered a fantastic view of the Kansas City skyline. There was also a fire pit in the pool area for hosting parties and barbecues. It was a relaxing setting and the staff often hosted community nights or socials for the tenants.
Areas of Improvement
There was only one trash dumpster for the entire complex and it was not conveniently located. This made trash day a challenge as you had to haul your trash a fair distance. I would also say that storage space was lacking within the apartment as there was minimal space for storing things like your cleaning supplies or holiday decor.
Overall, I would recommend staying at this complex. It's a quiet and safe community and you will enjoy your stay.
