Rated 2 out of 5?by Linda Generally ok
I lived in a 3 bed, 2 bath unit for a year with a roommate and my 2 cats. Moved out leaving the place clean, with minimal wear & tear, but very dissatisfied with management. The office staff is friendly, however some things you should be aware of.
1. The laundry is in the basement. The basement gets wet pretty much any time it rains. Flooding in the laundry room = no laundry until it drys. And nothing is done to speed that up.
2. Washers/dryers are adequate, but older, and no cleaning is done in the room other than emptying trash cans. Ever. They're pretty dingy.
3. Get everything in writing. After we moved out, my roommate repainted her room to avoid the painting fee. (Perfectly reasonable.) We were told that there is a redecorating fee that is pro-rated over 2 years, and since I only lived there for a year we'd by 50% of it. (Perfectly reasonable.) My roommate was told, verbally, that the redecorating fee was about $200. (Perfectly reasonable.) Then I got the deposit reconciliation - and the full redecorating fee is $700-800, so I'm getting charged almost $400. I don't think that it's reasonable, but there doesn't seem to be much I can do.
Overall, I am very happy to be out of the place. My impression is that they prefer owners (you can buy the units), and the renters aren't necessarily treated very fairly.

Rated 5 out of 5?by kmamo Great environment to live in
I have lived here for 2 years and i really enjoy the building i'm in. i have a 1 bdrm and there is more than enough room and closet space. every unit has a balcony or patio which is great all year round. i have yet to need maintenance but i see them walking the grounds and tidying up. i like that i am so close to the highway too-i-55 is like half a mile away. i've used the pool both summers i've been here and it is kept clean and pleasant. they offer events every couple months or so which is a good way to get people together. the forest preserve is right by the building i'm in and i love seeing it change throughout the season. there are all types of families here and it is extremely family friendly. the only reason i'm leaving in april is because i'm going to move back home, otherwise i really have no reason to leave. compared to other apt pricing and what's included, i'd say this is the average price, but having a pool, volleyball court, courtyard, balcony, walk in closet and large room space makes it an affordable + pleasant place to live.

Rated 5 out of 5?by Lune Great community!
I will be a new tenant here and I am really excited since I love walking my dog in the forest preserve, the place offers direct access to the walking trails. I will be very close to the high way so I'll get to work easily. The application process was great and the office staff is always very nice. My place is not updated but everything looks great and the best part is how roomy my two bedroom is! I can't wait I know my husband and I will have great memories here! :)

I have lived here for over two years now and I enjoy the trails that go through the forest preserve that surround the condos. I'm able to jog on the trails and then come back and relax in the pool after a long day.
The condo I live in is nice and my neighbors are almost all great. When I have had an issue, they were quick to fix it.
