Rated 4 out of 5?by Canelas88 Love love love
I have been in my new apartment for a month now , I couldn't be happier , it's a very safe well taken care off building Brittany who helped with all te paperwork was amazing . All our appliances are new and the rest of the apartment is remodeled . My daughter loved her room and the building . I wish I had my own washer and dryer I hate the laundry , this is the only negative but everything else is great.

Rated 1 out of 5?by Rafa035 Cat excrement, Russian Mob, and Worst Security ever
This place is awful, and I am so glad I don't live here anymore!
1) If you love the smell of cat urine and feces, this is the place for you! Walk down any of the buildings hallways and hope you don't have to hold your breath because the urine stench is thick! If you are smart, you will live upstairs so the cats won't defecate on your porch, and there is still no guarantee. The cats have overrun this place. Between the feral cats and the tenants cats, there is urine and feces everywhere.
2) I am pretty certain this place is run by the Russian Mob. The office staff us very rude (I am pretty sure they are talking about you when they talk to each other in Russian while you visit the office). They change rules at a whim and what they tell you one day, might not be so the next.
3) The security acts like they are guarding Fort Knox. If you like having people over, this is not the place for you. If there are more than two cars in the visitor line, it will take your guests a minimum of a half an hour to get in. My friends refused to come over unless absolutely necessary after my first two months of living here.
4) Don't believe the hype of the "brand new interiors". Sure, they are recently renovated, but they bought the cheapest stainless steel appliances possible. The refrigerator, dishwasher and stove are pieces of junk. The only thing nice are the new faux marble floors.
Do yourself a favor and pass on this place. There is much better for the money, you just have to look for it.

The remodeled apartments are nice but they skimped on the sound proofing?I'm on the second floor and hear noise from downstairs, next door, and the Ale House that is down the street on 136 St...I also get food smells from other apartments seeping through my vents.

Rated 2 out of 5?by JUSTUS HUGE RED FLAG
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE. I HAVE LIVED HERE TWO TIMES DURING MY TIME LIVING IN MIAMI, ONCE WITH MY FAMILY AND ONCE ON MY OWN WHEN BREAKING OUT OF THE NEST. THE FIRST TIME I LIVED HERE THE COMMUNITY WAS MANAGED BY A DIFFERENT COMPANY AND ALTHOUGH IT WAS QUITE AFFORDABLE IT WAS NOT A VERY SAFE ENVIROMENT. AFTER A FEW YEARS AND MANAGEMENT CHANGE I HAD HEARD FROM FRIENDS THAT THE PLACE WAS COMPLETELY RENEWED AND THE NICE PLACE TO LIVE. THEN AFTER A LONG SEARCH I DECIDED THAT THIS COMMUNITY WOULD BE THE RIGHT PLACE FOR ME. TO BEGIN WITH THE PLACE HAS DECENT AMENITIES, OH YEAH EXCEPT FOR THE MISSING GYM OR THE GYM THAT HAS NEVER BEEN FIXED. SECOND, THERE IS VERY LIMITED SPACE CREATED FOR PETS. THEY ARE LIMITED TO ONLY BE WALKED ON THE EDGES OF THE COMMUNITY BY THE PARKING SPACES, SO NOT ONLY HAVE PEOPLE STEPPED IN POO WHILE GETTING INTO THEIR CARS BUT YOUR PET IS NOT VERY MUCH WELCOME IN THE COMMUNITY EITHER (AS IF LIVING IN AN APARTMENT WITH A PET WAS NOT CROWDED ENOUGH TO PLAY AND ENJOY). FINALLY THE COMMUNITY TOWS YOUR CAR WHENEVER THEY FEEL LIKE IT. IF THE SECURITY GUARD IN THE FRONT JUST HAPPENS TO READ YOUR PASS INCORRECTLY AND GIVES IT BACK TO YOU NOT RENEWED (ALTHOUGH IT IS THEIR JOB TO MAKE SURE IT IS RENEWED) YOU WILL WAKE UP IN THE MORNING WITH YOUR CAR TOWED, ONLY TO FIND OUT THEY PUT A WARNING STICKER TO ADVISE AT 5:00 AM AS YOUR SLEEPING THAT YOUR PASS WAS EXPIRED AND TOW YOUR CAR AT 7:00 AM ONLY 2 HOURS LATER. ONCE YOU COMPLAIN TO MAKE AN INVETIGATION ON THIS AS YOU THOUGHT YOUR PASS WAS FINE THEY SHOW THE VIDEO OF WHEN YOU LAST CAME IN WHERE IT CLEARLY SHOWS THAT THE GUARD DID NOT DO HIS JOB BY NOT CHANGING YOUR PASS AND NOT ASKING FOR ID AND THE GUARD ON DUTY TELLS YOU THAT ITS NOT YOUR FAULT. YET NO ONE HELPS TO GET THE MONEY BACK FOR THE TOW OR APOLOGIZES FOR THE INCONVENIENCE AND JEOPARDIZING YOUR JOB. WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO LIVE SOMEWHERE THEY DONT FEEL SAFE OR CARED FOR, I MEAN ISN'T THAT THE REASON ASSOCIATIONS EXIST?

Rated 2 out of 5?by Katty36 rude office staff
The apartments are nice, the pools although they said they remodeled them, look outdated. The clubhouse is not for the use of the tenants, which seems ridiculous is for the use of the association and management!!!!. That is a first, a place where you cannot use the clubhouse!!!. Office staff is rude and unatentive, they seem to be lost always...awful laundry site and the trash you have to go in your car to be able to dispose of it....

Rated 2 out of 5?by klion Nice Interior, but that is about it
To begin with, the apartment itself is beautiful and looks exactly like in the pictures. Big walk in closet with built in shelves. The kitchen is also very nice.
The staff is not very friendly, sometimes rude. The receptionist in the front seems like she is lost and does not know what is going on half the time.
No matter how clean you keep the apartment, there seems to be a roach problem (they have pest control come every month, but still will have bugs).
The garbage dump is far so you have to take a long walk to take out the trash. Also, the laundry facility has old machines that look dirty. I rather pay to go do laundry elsewhere.
I will not be renewing my lease.

Rated 4 out of 5?by KaNe Great Price for Such a Nice Place
These apartments really are nice! Look exactly like the pictures on the website and do not dissapoint. Would definitely recommend checking this place out! Office staff is no good (the lady walked me to the apartment and stood there once inside; no tour or show around; had to check it out myself and ask questions to make her speak). Otherwise it's really a great place with gorgeous apartments

Rated 2 out of 5?by Chan05 Nice Apartments- Horrible Management
To start off on a positive note, the remodeled apartments are nice. They are spacious, have crown molding and the rooms are a good size. Everything else is a let down. The office staff is unhelpful and extremely dismissive. The outside of the buildings need to be pressure cleaned and the pest control is lacking to say the least. The laundry facilities have run down old machines that steal your money and leave your clothes full of soap mid cycle and the dryers stop drying while there's still time on the timer. The 2 "beautiful, olympic sized" pools are usually out of order. Also, they charge for a 2 bedroom what you will pay in a better area. AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS.
