Apartment Reviews at Foxchase Apartments
Great Customer Service, Incredible Price
My fiancé and I are moving to Alexandria to be next to his office; he currently commutes from Fredericksburg to Alexandria every day, so we were hoping to save some money when we started looking at apartments in the city. We became discouraged quickly, because the cost of living in Alexandria is so high that we actually weren't going to be saving money. Then we found Foxchase! We waited for a long time to be seen by someone, but it was well worth the wait and Kenneth, the man who gave us a tour, really gave us his full-attention and even sat and chatted with us for some time after all was said and done. He helped us find an apartment not only based on what we were looking for in an apartment, but also based on our budget! They have so many different options available that you can find exactly what you're looking for at your ideal price. Sure, these are tiny apartments, but they are built in such a way that it doesn't feel at all like a tiny apartment in the city, it actually feels like a home. I highly suggest that you schedule a tour so that you can see for yourself. You may have to wait as we did, but it is so worth it. Kenneth even counseled us on how to apply for scholarships as I have returned to school and my fiancé is considering doing the same. He gave us the impression that he really wanted to help us make our move work, and that meant so much to us. We have viewed several other properties in Alexandria, and we felt either too poor or just too inconvenient for the other property managers we've met. We are hopeful about our move once again, and Foxchase is our number 1 choice. Thank you, Kenneth!
i live in of the units that is in N Jordan St, Alexandria VA. My apartment have a serious mice infestation that lasted a few months. I can hear them underneath the floor and in the walls. I had to stop cooking at home for fear of catching diseases. I am very clean. Never left food or dishes out. I pay pest control fees to foxchase/AIMCO every month, yet the issue was never resolved. When i signed up they showed me a nice renovated apartment but when i signed the lease they hand over an old apartment that has bugs and mice in it. while signing the lease they didn't tell me about the monthly payment of water, pest control, trash and sewer. After complaining and requesting services i finally gave up and went to them to terminate the lease, the staff was super rude and they said that i have to pay two months rent in advance in order to break my lease. I regret my decision in moving to FoxChase apartments. Please don't be fooled with their so called cheap rent. Their rent is never cheap, if they tell you that the rent is $1200, believe me some how they will make you pay $1300 a month. Please AVOID FOXCHASE apartments AT ALL COST. I REGRET my Decision in moving to FOXchase apartments. I regret it every single day. Thank you and Good Luck. Please please please don't ever consider moving to one apartments in FoxChase.
Avoid this place...
Let'me be clear, I do NOT recommend Foxchase. The ONLY pro is the price. I guess you get what you pay for. 1.When moving in, I noticed that the hallways had a strong smell of urine and the hallway carpet was soiled and stained. I put in a request and shortly after I noticed that hallway smelled of urine with a hint of flowers. 2.The regular parking is limited for tenants that do not pay extra for reserved parking. 3.The trash dumpster is always overflowing and trash can be found all around the dumpster. 4.A large tree fell onto one of the apartments during a storm and has been there for over two months. 5.It is difficult to get in contact with the main office to address issues. 6.Maintenance requests are answered quickly (not including pest issues). I have had a pest issue (MICE) for over 4 months. I have sent request to have this issue handled every two weeks (the time it should take for the treatment to work) for four months. 7. A water pipe broke during the day (on a weekend) and the water for the apartment had to be turned off. A maintenance rep came by and told us that our apartment was effected (He could tell by the swelling in the wall) He indicated that someone would come back to remove the area before a mildew problem developed. No one ever came buy. I called the office and was told that it was not necessary. 8. The complimentary shuttle is only good for people who get on at the first stop. Foxchase refuses to invest in a bus that can accommodate the large apartment complex.
Happy to leave
Well We moved out of this place today 1st of all the management of this place are bunch of lazy employees who don't want to do any work or even answer the phone, rude and unprofessional. 2nd thing is parking .... Parking in foxchase is a stupid joke ... They charge you 10 dollars a month for parking and 40$ if you want your own reserved spot. Parking after 7 pm is impossible unless you have your own reserved spot. The problem is that I had neighbors who had their own reserved parking and even after they moved out the sign of reserved spot was still there and nobody could even park their for the fear of being towed and for few months till now the spots are there and never were used ( somebody is not checking on the reserved spots and that means somebody is not doing his job. 3rd the place is infested with rats and roaches .... If you love rats and mice then Foxchase is the perfect place for you. I made sure we cleaned our apartment well before we leave ... Yet the day of final inspection they said the place in not clean and when I challenged them for that they said I have to provide a bill from a professional cleaner to know I didn't do it myself (obviously they will charge you 90$ no matter what) Employees the day of the moving were rude and spoke only their native language. I contacted the general manager she kept making excuses to get the 90$ fees of cleaning claiming that she had pictures of the apartments 48 hours after I left!!! Happy to be out of this unclean unprofessional place!
Beware of Peeping Toms
I have lived in a Foxchase apartment for about a year and overall have not been happy with the apartment. Although this apartment had many problems, the primary reason that I am writing this review is because I, as well as my female neighbors, have experienced peeping toms. I live on the ground floor and caught someone filming me from outside the window while I was in my apartment. Although the windows have window shades, it is easy to see through them. My neighbor said that she has had the same experience three times, and that it has also happened to other neighbors. I called the police when it happened, and they got there quickly. However, when I spoke to the apartment management about switching apartments to a higher floor or ending my lease early, they were not helpful at all and told me that my security was not their concern (it is actually written in the lease). As a female living alone, I did not feel safe in these apartments, especially living on the ground floor, and want to warm other women of this problem. In addition, early on, I had massive cockroaches in the kitchen. However, management was responsive and eventually got rid of them within a few months. I have also had mice in the apartment (once on my kitchen counter). Management was also responsive to this and set mouse traps. The apartment has leaked twice, once getting the entire floor area in the living room wet. Appliances are also not great.
A home feeling.
Going from the sunshine state to Virginia has been quite the transition. For about a month and a half I was going in circles looking for the best place. I was looking for a place that gave me a sense of home and that I had the ability of adding a few items and making a home out of an apartment. Being hundreds of miles away from my family whom I am very close to at times breaks my heart but at the same time brings me closer to each one of them. Makes me stronger in a some sort of way. I am grateful to have stumbled across Foxchase Apartments.
Great Community, Recent Management Turnover, Solid Location
I've lived at Foxchase Apartments for over a year now and really have little to complain about. Rent is appropriate for the area and easy to pay, management is responsive to complaints, concerns and comments (literally have the general manager's cellphone number to occasionally text/call), and maintenance calls are easily submitted and usually taken care of in 48 hours. The four pools are great and always clean. The fitness areas could be better (only a few pieces of cardio/strength equipment) but there is a planet fitness within walking distance for everything else. Also, the Foxchase shopping center is within walking distance for all your grocery (Harris Teeter), pharmacy (Rite Aid), banking (Wells Fargo) and fast food (Chipoltle, Burger 7, Sushi Bar and Dominoes) needs. One of the best perks of living here is the free shuttle to and from the metro that runs on the hour and half hour in the mornings between 6-9 and the evenings between 5-7. This saves time, money and the shuttle is very comfortable and ALWAYS on time. Overall, the community is very friendly and they have several styles of apartments for you and your family's needs. A 20 minute drive into the heart of DC and traffic is usually a breeze. Hope this was a help and thanks for reading!
hello, I have lived in fox chase for a little over a year. I gave them 3 stars. I'll start with the good. We are getting a lot of bang for our buck, we have a 2 bedroom 2.5 bath. The few problems we have had were promises that were not kept, like a new black fridge that we are paying for but still do not have. We also keep having a big problem but we keep the apartment clean. My husband is a veteran and now works for the gov. And I was surprised that this complex doesn't even have military rate. To end on a good note the location is great.
Foxchase apartment community has a lot of positives and only a few negatives. I've lived in Foxchase for over a year and recently upgraded into the Gasby floorplan. The 1 bedrooms are small yet efficient with a very nice size closet. I had enough space for a large section couch plus recliner in the living room and a queen size bed, 2 night stands, and a dresser in the bedroom. The faux hardwood floors are aesthetically pleasing and very easy to manage. Never had any issues with the other kitchen appliances. Depending on which building you live in the balcony could be a negative. The balcony has just enough room to fit 2 chairs and a small table. Foxchase has continuously been rebuilding all balconies. I'd say they are about halfway complete, so there are still a lot of building with old worn balconies. The 2 bedrooms are very spacious with large closets. I love that the bedrooms do not share a wall, they are separated by bathrooms. Besides the upstairs and square footage the only other difference between 1 and 2 bedrooms the different kitchen designs. Depending on the upgrades you select, you could have plain laminate counter tops, or faux grantie counter tops which look a whole lot better. Also 2 bedrooms come with a breakfast bar, the upgraded kitchens have full see through cabinets above the breakfast bar. Maintenance is always quick, and efficient. New administration staff is friendly and helpful. Community areas and building hallways are well maintained. Other community features. Each section has it's own gym and swimming pool. The gyms have just 1 multipurpose weight machine, a couple bikes and/or ellipticals. There is a community dog park. Also Taney Park at the back of the community which has BBQ pit and people play with their kids, pets, and play soccer. I personally have had no issues with neighbors, or noise, and I fee safe walking my dog at all times of the night. There is a bus line which runs through the community, as well as the community shuttle to the metro. The shops at Foxchase are definitely an added plus. There are several parks and running trails less than 1 mile from the community as well . This is a heavily wooded area you'll see roaches, insects, and mice. Not huge rats but small woodland mice. Pest control is available twice per week. I have not had serious issues with pests, but just remember not all neighbors are as clean as you. Which could affect how often you see pests.
Absolute worst place I've ever lived. There is a reason the prices seem low, folks. Let me try to be concise. *The complex has a big bedbug/mice issue *I dealt with bedbugs, had a pest control no-show after spending hours and hours prepping my apartment (all the way down to unscrewing outlet shields and dismounting my TV), then was charged $80 for them to re-schedule treatment, which I was not refunded for. *I am highly allergic to the bugs, and the issue wasn't being taken care of. Once giving 60 day notice, I had to hunt for a new apartment immediately because I was experiencing horrible swelling from the bites. After a particularly bad bed-bug incident resulting in a hospital visit due to anaphylactic shock, I promptly signed at a new apartment complex and pleaded with Foxchase management to let me break the lease only 19 days early. They declined. Safe to say, I will be taking legal actions. Really, really horrible experience.
Affordable for the area
Living in the DC metro area is expensive. Foxchase offers reasonable rent in a decent location. When I was apartment hunting, a lot of the apartments that were in my price range where too far away from the metro. Or, if they were close, they were super small. Foxchase is about three miles from both the King Street and Van Dorn metro stops. Plus, they offer a free shuttle to and from the metro during rush hour. My roommate and I chose the Gadsby floor plan which means we have about 1200 sq. ft. We split the $1,700 rent. One of the pluses (I think) is that you are responsible for your own utilities. Many of the larger apartment buildings in the area add up the utilities for the whole building and divide it equally among the tenants. So why only three stars? For one, the appliances need updating. Also, it's sometime hard to get in touch with the management over the phone since they seem to prefer communication through their online portal. It's especially frustrating when your AC breaks in the middle of the summer and you're trying to get it fixed. (They did fix it while I was at work, so I'll give them that, but it's hard to get updates from them. I didn't even know they got my messages until I came home from work and found the service receipt.) I've read some other reviews where people complain about bugs, but I've never had a problem with that. (Maybe because I'm on the top floor?) Some things I like: There are plenty of buses in the area, so even if you can't catch the free shuttle, you can easily catch a bus to either King Street, Van Dorn, or Pentagon. There is plenty of street parking, which is available to tenants for $10 a month. It's in walking distance of a 24 hour supermarket, a Rite Aid, and shops/restaurants. It's right by 395. Sure there are other apartments that are more conveniently located, or have fancier amenities, or nicer looking kitchens, but I think this is a comfortable place to live. I just renewed my lease for another 15 months.
Nice Apartments, Leasing Office Needs Work
When we first looked at these apartments, they seemed like they were perfect. Hardwood floors, pet friendly, amenities to spare, and an online application that was a breeze to fill out to top it all off! The apartment itself has lived up to it's pictures for the most part, the hardwood is a laminate, the apartments are pet friendly, and there are plenty of amenities. However, none of the utilities are included and you are restricted on the companies you can work with to get them. Not necessarily a bad thing, but since some of them are pricey for dicey service, not the best way to run things. There are four pools on the property, two fitness centers, and two clubhouses, a business center with ambiguous hours(not noted anywhere!), and 24-hour maintenance that is super-friendly and super-helpful! However, and yes, there is another however, the leasing office is a pain to work with. When we had an issue with the online application, we were shipped off to one leasing agent, who ended up being out sick for three days, and didn't tell anyone about our issue. When we called about it two days later, we were shipped off to another leasing agent, who promptly forgot about us. Finally on the third day, we got the issue sorted out, only to have to go through the whole application process again when we arrived to move-in. Something about not being able to access the online applications we had previously filled out. Then, due to the confusing nature of the lease signing (also all online) we had to pay more money because somehow we missed some of it when we were originally signing the lease. All of this was super frustrating and could have been avoided if the leasing agent had just told us what we had to pay, and where to go to pay it in the system. So, nice apartments, beware the leasing office. The people are nice, just a little out of it.
Not worth the headache anymore
I've lived in Foxchase almost 3 years, so I feel I can give a reliable picture of what it's like to live here as a young professional. First off, yes, the rent is very reasonable for Alexandria. However, utilities are not included so you should factor in an additional $200 or so when calculating the actual cost of living here (plus another $40 for parking, but more on that later). The location is great, I have a phenomenal commute, but it’s getting to the point where the costs are really outweighing the benefits of living here. If you've read other reviews where people say the admin/leasing office staff don't seem to care about residents, they're not wrong. The only good-natured people on the staff that I’ve met are the maintenance crew; everyone else is more concerned with squeezing as much money out of residents as they can. Be prepared for an increase in rent of at least $80 every time you’re up for renewal. Like squeezing blood from a turnip. They tell you when you move in that parking is readily available and that it is sufficient to have a $15/month parking permit for unreserved spaces. The reality is that many more spaces have been converted to reserved parking since I moved in, and most of them sit open all night while people without a reserved parking permit ($40/month) have to find street parking or one of a handful of unreserved spaces that are still left. Just tonight, I counted 20 open spaces in my lot and 21 open spaces in the lot across the street. All reserved, all empty. But they insist residents have been banging down their doors asking for more reserved parking. And don’t think you can get away with parking in a reserved space without a permit, even just for a couple of hours: they are ghoulishly proactive about towing, which will cost you a couple hundred dollars plus time off work to retrieve your car from the sketchiest impound lot I’ve ever seen. But hey, they bought a water rower for one of the fitness centers! Great use of resident funds. Never mind that these buildings go back to WWII and need to have all of the plumbing redone. Let’s just deck out the fitness centers and hope people don’t notice that they’re living in vermin-infested units that contain enough lead paint that you have to sign a waiver when you move in. In short, I’m in the market for a new apartment. Yes, the location is convenient, but the headache just isn’t worth it anymore.
Country Living Close to DC
Fox Chase apartments in Alexandria is a great place to live if you work in DC but don't want to pay the high prices and deal with the crime and traffic. At only 7 miles from the city and a 45 minute public transportation commute on weekdays, it is the ideal place to live. On weekends if you need to get to the city, plan on a 15 minute drive! Or take your bike, which when ridden on the numerous trails available will take you approximately one hour. At prices starting in the 1100.00 range Fox Chase just can't be beat.
The onsite gym lacks equipment and the equipment they do have is not unkempt. About the only thing usable in the gym is the treadmill. The pool is ok also. As for the apartment itself; the size of the space is enough for 2 people but it does get a little cramped. The Floors are a nice updated medium brown “hard wood." Everything else hasn't been updated in years. The stove in my apt. is old and is unleveled which leads to uneven cooking. The inside of the kitchen cabinets have sharp screws sticking out. Beware not to cut yourself like my wife did. The bathroom is small and the fixtures are out of date as well. The toilet often runs which leads to higher sewer and water usage. Foxchase does offer updated kitchens and bathrooms for a premium price. A lot of my complaints are more quality of life things. They are easier to overlook when the cost of rent wasn't high but now that they increased their rent by 20% for a 12 month lease the quality of life things matter a little more. Unless you can get a bargain in your rent from Foxchase I would look elsewhere. They've priced them self too competitively in the market for substandard amenities and living space.
Foxchase is a really nice apartment complex. Ive been here for 6 years and I love the location. The surrounding area is quit, and it's pretty safe. I love that maintenece arrives on time every time I schedule an appointment, and also that you pay his bill online. The price you pay for the space you get is AMAZING. The closets could be a little bigger but you can't have it all. Now that Ive gotten all the good stuff out the way its time to talk about the mice. The six years I've been here ive had about 3-4 mice sightings. I reported it to maintenece and they informed that foxchase seems to be plagued with Mice! They come and go and Ive learned to live with them, but I'll soon be having a baby and don't want her around mice so I'll soon be moving.
You get what you pay for
We've lived in a 2br for almost 3 years now. It's got a ton of space and we love the set up. However, the building is poorly built, we've dealt with an ongoing bug problem and the management/ admin staff doesn't truly understand customer service. If you're looking for a cheap apartment, with lots of space (and not close to anything), this is the place for you!
Best value in the best area! Great staff, helpfully and straight forward, no hidden fees. Apartment is newly renovated w/new appliances. Great place to live!
Please just don't.
Hi, current resident. I have never been more appalled by the quality of life at an apartment complex or the ability to contact ANYONE in the leasing office for anything ever. Save your money and rent elsewhere. Walls are paper thin, forget any privacy or quiet times. Bugs. So. Many BUGS. They just decimated half of the parking options. If you want to park near your unit, be prepared to pay an extra 40$ for a spot otherwise forget all night time social activities because you're not parking within a block and a half of your unit. The gym consists of a few treadmills and a bowflex weight trainer. The pools dont open till noon. Nothing they advertise as a great amenity is remotely worth the price of living here. My lease ends in 45 days and I cannot wait to friggin leave. Do yourself a favor and bypass this crappy complex.
Don’t waste your time
This place is horrible. They will dramatically increase your rates two months before your lease date ends for the next term. You have to give two months written notice to vacant the property. If you want to do early termination it’s 5 months notice!!!! The front door to my building has been broken for a year. The guy upstairs has been stealing my mail and the community doesn’t care. There are bugs every morning in my bathtub and good luck getting a representative. I have to call 3 times min to get someone on three different days. This place has been horrible. There are much better communities around the dc area. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME. I wish I listened to the reviews before I signed because I finally see how bad it is.
Listen to the warning!
Lived here for 10 months and some of the issues I dealt with were; 1. Neighbors excessively breaking the secured building door (it was actually broken into so much that they have replaced the door because it was cracked down the middle). Being awakened in the middle of the night because someone is breaking the door or having pictures fall off your walls from the force was bothersome. 2. The hallways are loud (dogs barking, babies crying, music being played, and loud neighbors), walls are thin, and noise can be heard into your bedroom. 3. Frequent change of management and staff. 4. Roaches, roaches, roaches! Didn't have a problem until 6months after I moved in and it continues. There is a high turnover in this community but they only exterminate the building once a year. I ignored other people's reviews on this complex and that was a big mistake. The location, proximity to the shopping center and highway, price of rent, beauty of the campus were my main reasons for signing a lease. It has been a stressful year living here. Needless to say, I will not be renewing my lease.
I have lived in Foxchase for 3 years. The apartments are very nice and their amenities are great for the rent price. The neighborhood is so peaceful and there are no issues. Whenever there is a maintenance problem someone is out the same day to fix it.
First, compared to what people pay in this area, this is a steal. Secondly, this is a huge community so they offer lots of amenities like 4 clean pools with lifeguard, metro shuttle, good parking. The hours of the metro shuttle could be better. And the living room hears all the noise from the hallway, but if your neighbor's kids don't scream, it isn't a problem. I miss having a better thermostat but if I cared more I could buy one myself. Maintenance has been quick and polite when needed. Everything you could possibly need is in walking distance. Fairly energy efficient, low added costs. The size means it is easy to accidentally meet people that live here! So far, enjoying it here!
Do not rent at Fox Chase apartments. They show you these nice model apartments and they apartment you rent looks nothing like that. I have been renting here for almost two years and it has been a terrible decision. When I first moved in the shower was not working and it took over a week to get fixed. I was without heat for about a week as well. It got down to 50 degrees in the apartment. When I first moved here they had a shuttle that would fit about 20 people and it would pick you up every 30 minutes. I picked this apartment complex because of the shuttle service only for it to be removed a few month late due to"no one riding it". The shuttle was packed I never rode it with a seat empty. Most recently they did a survey and there was "overwhelming results" for more reserved parking. There were already 5 spots in the lot that were reserved and only 3 were ever used. There are now 12 and they sit mostly empty. Before they added spots I already had a difficult time finding parking now it is almost impossible. I pay $15 per car to park on the street. To get a reserved spot is about $80. This complex does not care about it's tenants. They are just money hungry and are trying to get there tenants frustrated enough with parking so they pay $80 per month. Each year you are going to pay more for less as they take away more and more things.
I have been living at FoxChase for about a year now. Unfortunately I am locked in a 14 month lease or I would be out the door right now! There is so much wrong with this property. For starters the leasing office does not care at all about your concerns, questions, or calls. On many occasions I have called the leasing office during business hours and no one answers the phone. Don't even waste your time leaving a message because they won't call you back. Second, I moved into my apartment and it was so blatantly obvious they did not do a walk through before hand to make sure the apartment was good to go. I moved in with a broken AC unit, broken drawers in the kitchen, broken door to my washer/dryer, a toilet that runs constantly, and little insects EVERYWHERE! Honestly there was much more wrong with the apartment upon moving in, but the list is too long. I had to fight with the maintenance team to fix my AC, because of course "there was nothing wrong with it" even though my bill was close to $300 for a one bedroom 800 square foot apartment. Third, there was a mouse in my apartment and they literally didn't do anything about it for 2 days. I had to vacate my apartment until pest control could come by. I have no idea why I am paying every month for pest control but yet I can't get them to come out on my timeframe. When maintenance came to check under my sink they found three large holes under my cabinets where the mouse got in. The kicker? They had just finished replacing my water heater and NO ONE FILLED THE HOLES. Lastly, I was a day late paying my rent honestly I just forgot, you would think someone like me who always pays their rent before the 1st they would send a reminder and say "hey, rent is due." Nope nothing. So they gave me a $100 late fee. I called the office to see if I could get them to take it off, because I had family in town and it just completely slipped my mind. No one picked up. Please just stay away from this place. The rent is cheap for a reason. The units are terrible and the common areas always smell like pee. Do yourself a favor and pay 100-200 dollars more for something 10 times nicer.
Serious infestation of mice has been going on for a couple of decades now at Foxchase so don't believe it when mgmt responds that they will have the problem addressed. Exterminator told me they are not fixing the insides of the walls and therefore the problem will never go away. Then they have the nerve to charge for cats when having a cat is the only way to keep them out of your apartment. Its not one mouse you'll see and for every mouse you get rid of, another one will be right behind it. They come in through the water heater area and are under all your kitchen equipment and will roam your apartment at night.
Do you self a favor
This place is ok just because we are close to all our friends..this place is a shame they charge us so much money from our deposit bcoz there is wear and tear through they unit before moving about I ask the admin and the person that did put pre-move our inspection and all they said everything is good as long as no big holes( like a quarter size) and you guys are good to go..when we move out we discover a big mold behind out furniture and we are like oh we might get charged for this so we kinda expect that they will change the wall and etc.the very last day/date of our lease we went back to our unit to get something before we turn our key back we are so shook of what we saw they didnt remove the wall that have a mold what they did was only to cover up the mold with the paint how disgusting..made us realize we might have mold all over unit if this what they do to just suck up all the money..Ah oh not only that neighbors have party on weekends and get drunk and throwing bottles to the next building..visitors are always welcome without a main door key all you do is yank the door hahahaha..report this to the office but nothing happened don’t feel safe in the place
PLEASE dont move here.
We lived here for about 2 years or so, and are so glad to be gone- the only positive thing I can say is that the size of the apartment for the money was decent. The apartments are aging- so much so that most of our walls were coated in the same drab white paint so many times that there were literally hairs from other tenants painted into the walls. That's after having to pay $90 for a professional cleaning every time someone moves out! The cabinets are falling off the hinges and are full of nails and broken mechanics. They do pest control every so often, but when we called to get our apartment sprayed after a roach infestation, the company handling that refused to spray our apartment because the technician was afraid of cats. We handled the roach issue on our own dime after multiple failed attempts to work with management on the issue. The walls are incredibly thin, and so we frequently had to deal with loud neighbors screaming at each other down the hallways or the permeating smell of weed coming in from the ventilation system. The hallways area always filthy and cleaned so infrequently that it was an embarrassment to invite anyone over. People will throw garbage off of their balcony (there's been a Christmas tree rolling around in the court of my old building for a long time), and the garbage cans are either overflowing or being picked over by people looking for free stuff. The administration staff has gone through so many turnovers that nobody really knows what's going on anymore, and it shows. Because of the huge size of this community, you have to go through the Aimco phone tree to get ahold of a real person if you have any issues, and forget about trying to reach anyone in a pinch. Once you're actually a resident, the phones won't be answered for you unless you call one of the magic 20 phone numbers perpetuated on the internet. The gyms are constantly FILTHY and people are running their own personal training gigs and letting in non-residents to use the equipment every morning. People will also stuff rags into the locks near the pool so people can let their friends come and go to the gym as they please. If all you care about is having a place to put your stuff, instead of living in a place you enjoy that values you as a resident, Foxchase is a great option. When you pay rent, you are paying the bills for these people- you deserve better than this massive garbage community. We are so glad to be gone.
Leasing consultants do not care
My family and I are very disappointed by the Leasing consultants. Firstly, we explained what we were looking for, what kind of apartment and the budget. We asked a couple of times if the utilities are included. They said yes. Then, we got quotes. We decided to apply for one of them but we couldn't. We went back to the office, they said the apartment is already taken. Then another apartment that was found was a bit more expensive, in another building and at the ground floor (compared with second floor of the first apartment). They said the price is a little bit more expensive because it has dryer and washer in unit ( Washington floor plan) We were confused because the consultant said how Washington floor plans don't have washer and dryer in units. We asked to see the apartment, and found out how there's no washer and dryer. They said the computer made a mistake. We decided to take the apartment after all. While applying for the apartment, we saw that utilities are not included in the price, and how insurance should be paid. We called the office, one of the consultants said how the insurance is required and has to be paid. Our rent increased right away. If we had known all information in the first place, we wouldn't have applied and lost 150$ (application fee). The consultant when we came to say how we want to give up on the application was so rude. She said how the insurance isn't required and how someone should've told us for the utilities. How is it possible that we get different stories from each consultant? So yeah, unfortunately we had to give up and search for the apartment somewhere else. A very unpleasant experience Also, the apartment we have seen were not that clean. Thank God we haven't signed the lease!!!!
I've lived at Foxchase for 2 years and my experience has gotten progressively worse. Pros: Cost for space Cons: Horrible management (slow or no response), slow maintenance response time, messes left behind by maintenance, LACK OF PARKING, poor ground maintenance, insects, recurring appliance issues. Motorcycles don't pay for parking and I've sent multiple emails to management to do something about this...as parking is already scarce. They of course haven't responded to one email. I know that the building is old, but when you pay extra each month for extermination fees, you betcha your bottom that you don't want to see insects! I'm currently battling a fly infestation. Do yourself a favor and find a better home for your money. This place is the pits!!!!
Really it's bad Community and they make you sign the contract as they can to steal your money
I have been living at Foxchase for roughly 9 months now. Pros - hardwood floors, price, maintenance team, shopping. Cons - Literally everything else. The grounds are awful minus the main street of N. Jordan. Commons area's are filthy and outdated. You can hear anything within and outside of your building at all times. Parking is absolutely ridiculous. You pay $10 a month and end up parking 1/2 a mile down the road from your home on a typical night. The overall square footage of these places alone makes it not worth the money. I have the "upgraded" 1 bedroom and I don't even have 600 square feet. Really? I would be willing to wager that you are better almost anywhere other than here. This place reminds me of low end trashy military housing or barracks. Can't wait to leave!
Foxchase Apartments - Excellent Choice
Foxchase apartments in Alexandria, VA is a great complex for many reasons. It is located minutes away from exciting King Street, where there are a ton of great restaurants, bars, and unique shops. Super easy access to the highway to get on 395/495/95. They offer a FREE shuttle service to the King Street Metro during rush hour Monday through Friday. Also a great option if you don't feel like driving into the city. Also, if you decide not to opt for the parking sticker, there is always a ton of street parking that you do not have to pay for. Something to keep in mind. You can walk to Harris Teeter to pick up some groceries during the week. Chipotle, Rite Aide, Pier 1 Imports, a nail salon and other stores are all located in a very convenient shopping area right next to Foxchase. Whole Foods is also a few miles away from the apartment complex. Now ALL apartments are accepting dogs and cats. Great news for any animal lover. And there is a dog park behind Harris Teeter. You have the option to work out in one of three gyms. Foxchase community offers group fitness classes and has great options to join sports leagues. They have 6 tennis courts. You can also play at night since they are lighted. They have 4 outdoor pools. And plenty of walking/running trails nearby. Any service request I have ever had and I have had only 3 since I have lived here. Which has been for 2 years now. They have always responded right away AND followed up with me to ensure I was satisfied with the results.
Nice place to live
Rent is pretty cheap here, though the space is small. The neighborhood is safe and there is good metro access by bus. Morning shuttle can take you to metro rail as well. Neighbors aren't too loud, but certainly leave a good amount of trash and cigarette butts around. Only wish is that it was closer to Old Town or a Metro station. Overall, especially for the price, I would recommend.
Great Area & Value
I really like living at Foxchase, we moved in while I was pregnant... and now we have a 1 1/2 year old! From my experience the staff has always been efficient, friendly & maintenance has been quick to respond when called. The area is very convenient to Old Town, there is a shuttle to the metro and a well maintained pool and gym. I love that there is a grocery store and shopping center right here and the community is up against Homes Run. I feel very safe walking everywhere with my daughter and love the "neighborhood" feel of the entire property. We live in one of the two bedroom town homes and you just cant beat the price in terms of location and square footage.
Good apartment for families
I've had a good experience living at Foxchase apartments for over 2 years now. Service requests are prompt and the maintenance staff do a good job on the upkeep of the property. The community is safe and quiet and walking distance to Foxchase Shopping Center, the Beatley library and several beautiful parks and trails to walk around. There are a good number of Metro bus routes along the property and it's only a few miles away from King Street and Eisenhower Ave metro. This is a nice central location between Arlington, Alexandria and Falls Church with easy access (by car) to 1-495, 1-395 and 1-95. There's a bus shuttle to take residents to the King Street metro on weekday mornings which is great. The only negatives I've seen are that the trash bins outdoors can get really full to the point of overflowing and I do see people speed through the neighborhood streets so you need to take extra caution when parking or backing out of your parking space.
Excellent location. Accessible to transportation, Oldtown and DC.
If you give a mouse a cookie...
The apartment is in a great area. Close to the metro, Old Town Alexandria, running and biking trails, shopping and great resaurants. Maintenace is always timely and helpful. Other than the occasional mouse it is a great place to live.
I am Glad they accept PET
Getting a pet friendly apartment in the us is very hard , and I am Glad that Foxchase apartments allows pet! The management is a little bit shaky, Definitely, there's a room for improvement. Other than that, the service request can be requested online and gets completed on time. You can also pay your rent online. I am glas that I found this apartment for me and my four legged child on Apartments.com

Neighborhood - Seminary Hill
In west Alexandria, sandwiched between the Taylor Run and Alexandria West neighborhoods, Seminary Hill provides a mostly residential, single-family dwelling escape from the city. Residents live here in part for the overall accessibility of both commercial activities within the city as well as ways out of the city.
The peripheries of this neighborhood have no shortage of shops and restaurants, while the center remains peaceful and quiet. Residents wouldn't have it any other way. With parks and streams, breweries and fine dining, Seminary Run offers its residents the best of both worlds.
