Rated 3 out of 5?by Joba123 Nice area and amenities, poor almost everything else.
I lived in a 1 bedroom apartment for a year here, and I had a very mediocre experience. The price is decent for the area, but the space was smallish. Here's a quick rundown of each area, hopefully it's helpful to other renters.
? Kitchens: Small. With no over the range microwave you have only one or maybe two spaces on your countertop with which to work. Gas stove is nice, fridge is run of the mill. Dishwasher was old, nice sink and accent on the faucets though.
? Bedrooms: Decently sized, with room for a queen bed and desk. Bad closet space.
? Bathroom: Best feature of the apartment. Large with tons of cabinet space, enjoy the full mirror. Never had any plumbing problems.
? Maintenance: Quick response time, poor execution. I had to recall the staff on multiple occasions to fix something they deemed wasn't broken. Heaven forbid you have to go through their third party appliance repair as well.
? Office Staff: Friendly and prompt, even if not helpful sometimes. The full-timers and more serious ones of the staff were always happy to help and tried to accommodate me.
? General: Noise is a problem here. The walls are thin and I often smelled what my neighbors cooked for hours after it was gone and I could hear EVERYTHING my neighbors above me did. This was my biggest problem with this place. The area is clean and well maintained, and I never saw a bug when I was here. My utilities were about $100 a month for electric, trash, water and sewer. Seems very energy efficient, as I'm a pretty wasteful person It's close to a lot of things, and would be great for a student as the drive to Webster is about 5 minutes. You can not pay your rent online without a $25 dollar "convenience" fee, which is a small and petty gripe, but still a very stupid thing. Parking is a pain if you get home past 9pm any night - I'd have to park two or three buildings away sometimes. I also never used my parking pass they gave me because I don't stick things on my windshield - never received a warning or anything, so I know that's just a joke. The fitness center is small and not useful but the pool is very big and would be attractive to someone who frequents their community pool.
Overall I'd recommend you put this place on a list to look at, but look for a top level unit if you can. It's one of the few complexes in the area that does not include water sewer trash in the rent, and is a bit more expensive than a lot of other properties. Location is probably the biggest selling point of this place, though.

Rated 5 out of 5?by Katie91 Great apartment complex
I moved a one bedroom apartment in May 2013 and so far I really have no complaints. My neighbors are quiet. Every time I have placed a work order it has been fixed very quickly and with no hassle. The people who work in the office are very nice. Laundry facilites are perfectly fine, $1.50 per load to wash or dry. The location is great for my 20-minute commute downtown to work. I do wish the "gym" was larger and had better hours or a code to get in any time, because I would like to work out early in the morning. Other than that though I think it's a great place to live!

This place is terrible don't live here. Loud, the staff has came in several times without notice, they work on your back porch without notice at 830am with drill guns and will charge for every tiny thing possible. I do not recommend living here it has been an absolute awful experience for my girlfriend and I and we are currently looking to move out. Appliances are cheap and keep breaking, had to ask 9 times to get a dishwasher fixed before it worked again and got a noise complaint for watching a movie in my living room. When we moved in we had to get our shower fixed immediately, our garbage disposal didn't work and our AC condensation line was running into out basement. I highly recommend going somewhere else
