Quiet, Accessible and Good Value
I arrived in DC close to five years ago for work. After living in DC for close to a year, I left the noise of Dupont Circle and moved to The Park at Arlington Ridge three and a half years ago. Due to my decision to return to the west coast, I recently moved out of my apartment. This is a very quiet community that is quickly accessible to communities throughout the Greater DMV area. I never had any problem when I stayed here and I found the staff to be helpful and friendly. The amenities are good, and I enjoyed walking down Army Navy Drive to the Pentagon City Mall. Maintenance requests were always handled in a prompt manner. This community represents a great value when compared to other apartments in Arlington and DC. My monthly rent was about 40% less than what I paid when I lived in DC.
Don't live here if you expect quality service.
Do not live here if you expect quality service from the office staff and management. I have called and visited them numerous times (and never seen the same employee twice) about numerous problems. The worst issue is their inability to follow up. I have informed them five times now that I am not on any email listserv and have not received any emails from them. This has resulted in me being uninformed about any changes in the parking policies, and therefore, three different friends have had their cars towed after coming over for dinner. This is an unnecessary occurrence because any knowledge would have been welcome. It is not the policy itself which is the greater issue, but their absolute inability to ensure that all residents are informed of any changes. I've also filed dozens of noise complaints against one neighbor and they have done absolutely nothing to resolve this issue. Absolutely no one is helpful, no one offers any apologies or any potential resolutions for these issues. I am extremely disappointed because it is a great location, but because of the ineptitude of the office staff and management, I cannot wait to move out.
Affordable, Suburbia, Disengaged Front Office
My first experience with the Front Office was a pleasant one, as I signed the lease the first time I visited. The rent was affordable for Arlington/Alexandria area. (Mostly due to not being in walking distance to a metro stop.) The apartment complex runs a shuttle to the Pentagon City metro stop, but frequently misses scheduled pick up times. The pool is an awesome feature and one I use frequently. My second year at the apartment complex they started to charge residents a fee to bring guests to the pool. During my first year, my roommate had to move back home and therefore I found a new roommate. At no point in time did the front office make this transition seamless. In fact, they lost paperwork, they were never on the same page as management, and were consistently disrespectful. During this time I frequently asked to speak to a manager to address any issues and the manager in turn would hang up the phone on me. My new roommate and I decided to renew for 6 months and looked at the option of moving within the complex to a bigger apartment. This was not received well by the front office who did absolutely nothing to aid us when looking at other apartments on the complex. One time in particular, they handed us the keys to several apartments and said "go check them out for yourself." Rent is automated in the apartment system. Recently, the front office did not run my roommates portion of the rent, like they typically do. Instead, of reaching out to let us know there was a problem, they put an eviction notice on our front door. Naturally, we were panicked and reached out and after 4 phone calls and dropping into the office twice, we were finally able to get in touch with someone. At that point the problem was solved. Overall, the apartment is older, but renovated. The small buildings give the complex a more home like feel. The biggest negative of the actual apartment would be the noise level. My experience with the front office has been so incredibly bad, that it has negated any positive features this particular complex has to offer.
With the great reviews online, I had expected a lot more from this place. It's not a great choice for non-smokers, as they let people smoke in some apartments and wouldn't guarantee a non-smoking apartment.
Would not recommend for the price
Personally, I would not recommend this apartment complex to others. The units are nice and there are a number of amenties that are nice such as shuttle service to the metro station, a computer lab, consierge desk, etc. But, keep in mind you are paying more for that stuff. The apartments are billed as"luxury", but maintenance and management do not approach things that way for the extra money. Getting stuff taken cared of is like pulling teeth in that it takes multiple requests/complaints to get things done. Management's answer to dog waste left on the lawns is to keep sending leters to all the residents. They give you a parking placard to park in the parking lots--one placard per apartment. However, there are not enough parking spots for even one car per apartment. Thus, residents with a placard end up fighting for street parking. Do they assigj spots or add some spots? No. They painted new lines in the parking lots in the early summer, which inconvenienced every resident. No big deal except that they then decided to re-pave the parking lots in late summer, inconveniencing everybody all over again. To get something repaired properly in your apartment will take multiple attempts--having to call them back each time. The maintenance guys drive around the complex, but will drive right by missing and loose bricks in the sidewalks--or a pile of dog plop on the sidewalk. They will walk right by garbage on the ground or garbage like sofas, chairs, and mattresses piled all around the receptacle areas (which looks bad). Management always say they will address complaints, but it is either with a mass letter or nothing at all. They are not proactive, but reactive--and even then it is not that reactive. Not for as much rent you pay to live here and for a place advertised as luxury. It is a showy place, but offers little else when and where it counts. I would recommend cheaper places that get things done over a showy place that does not.
The Park at Arlington Ridge
The Park offers great location, spacious apartments, and great public greenspace and amenities. However the relatively bland kitchens and baths, thin walls, and a less-than-convenient parking policy mean there are definitely better values to be had in Arlington.
Cheap, not in a good way
I was excited touring this apartment complex, but now that I've been here almost a year and everything is falling apart, so happy to be moving on. Lack of ventilation means the fire alarm goes off any time you cook. Only half of the burners on the stove work. It takes 15 minutes running the faucet to get warm water. The washer and dryer is so rickety I and the lint screen is missing. The walls are so thin it's hard to keep your train of thought. And yes, as others have said, the management team is not helpful in the least. It seems like a good deal when you visit, but the stress of living here is not worth it.
Dog bites resident and management does nothing
A neighbor's dog bit me unprovoked, drawing blood, as I was walking down the sidewalk-- and The Park did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. The bite happened in December 2014, and it required medical treatment. The dog is still living here in a public area where kids play. The dog's owners engage in the same behaviors that led to bite. The dog has not been removed as of June 2016. Two managers have told me there is nothing that can be done. When asked about keeping the community safe, the current manager told me that residents have a responsibility to protect themselves and that the property is not responsible for the safety of residents??!! I was walking down the sidewalk minding my own business! So, if you are thinking of moving here...remember they: 1. Believe it YOUR responsibility to keep yourself safe on THEIR property, and they have no obligation to keep their residents safe. 2. Would rather allow a dog that bit somebody to stay in the community and do NOTHING to ensure that other residents are safe. If they allow a dog that bites somebody to stay without doing anything, it makes me wonder what they would do if another resident attacked another resident? This place is advertised as "luxury". I think it is ridiculous to pay this kind of rent to be told that I was essentially responsible for an unprovoked dog bite while I was using a public, common area. Also, there is frequent management/staff changeover. There have been three mangers here in the 2.5 years that I have lived here. They are often slow in responding to requests/emails, and it is not untypical for you to have to contact them a number of times to get an issue taken cared of.
Horrible management office
The apartments themselves are nice, aside from the cheap carpets. It is the management staff that makes the Park horrible. The people in that office are extremely rude. It seems like everyone in that office is always in a bad mood and are unhelpful. I have complained several times about extremely loud neighbors in my building, to no help whatsoever from the staff. The shuttle bus service is a joke. The drivers are often late, sometimes don't even show up at all. The office staff never knows whats going on or why only one of the two buses are running. Not to mention the fact that one of the shuttle buses crashed last year. Several residents were on the bus. The management office failed to inform other residents what had happened. They seemed to just brush the crash under the rug. Not cool.
A Gem Finding in Arlington, VA
I'm half way through my lease and plan to renew it, no questions asked! The front office and maintenance crew are polite and quick to respond. They are easy to work with, making living at The Park at Arlington Ridge a breeze. The apartment itself is up to date, clean, and beautiful. Having your own washer/dryer in the apt is probably my favorite feature. The noise level is minimum to none. The neighbors are kind and respectful. The location is near almost everything. You have a shopping center with a grocery store, liquor store, nail salon, restaurants, a gym, a vet clinic, etc. You are located next to a 395 exit and close to route 1. It is great location. I don't want to jinx myself, but everything is almost perfect! The only cons I have are parking and apt size. It is one parking pass per apt and the rest is street parking. To be honest there is street parking at every inch of the premises, but it could be a walk. As for the size, it is a bit small. For three adults, a 2 bedroom/1 bath is a little tight, but definitely do able. Haven't been happier that I found this place!
Park at Arlington Ridge
This apartment is not the most updated place but it is clean and has reasonable rent. Unfortunately, the management is terrible.
I've lived here four years.
The Park is a great to live; I've been here four years and they have a great gym, 24 hour concierge service, and terrace apartments! The parking can be tough but it's great for dogs and they just built a new dog park!
Nice complex, but its getting expensive.
The Park at Arlington Ridge is a good place for young professionals. There are lots of nice perks, like a gym and shuttle to metro. There are a lot of extra fees, and they will try to raise the rent if you want to renew the lease. You can usually negotiate away some of the fees or rent hikes. The move-in specials are good deals, but it gets expensive after a while. My wife and are will be moving out after three years for a bigger apartment. Good for dog lovers. Parking is difficult: the lot fills up at night and passes are limited - and they will tow if you do not have a pass. Street parking is difficult too.
I have lived at the Park at Arlington Ridge for over a year and have been happy with my apartment. They are older garden style buildings that have been renovated. Lots of green space and close to the city! Management has its ups and downs. Just be aware of any hidden fees (i.e. for adding someone to a lease/roommate change.) Maintenance is very responsive and fixes issues very timely.
A Place at the Park
It truly is living at the park - green courtyards and full grown trees surround this community style complex. The apartments are spacious with an open floor plan and breakfast bar, with fresh paint and clean carpets waiting for you when you move in! The community is pet friendly, and the staff are not only helpful, but make the extra effort to ensure any maintenance or concierge requests are taken care of promptly. The only things I would change would be assigned parking spaces and a closer location to the metro - but with a courtesy shuttle operating during AM/PM rush hours, it's still only 10 minutes away.
Excellent Location in Arlington
I was looking for a pet-friendly apartment but didn't want to settle with a single bedroom. Unfortunately, in this high cost area, single bedrooms are the norm. I managed to find a solid 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom for a price that would normally only get me a studio/1BR. The apartment complex has the suburb feel but is a short distance away from the nightlife. There is a free shuttle bus that takes you to the metro, which is handy; I haven't had to drive to work in quite some time. A Capital Bikeshare is readily available and taxi (or Uber) rides into the city is relatively cheap. And if you still need to drive, I395 is close by. I took off one star only because the parking lot can fill up quick. Additionally, while the interior has been modernized, the exterior looks somewhat like a military barracks. I routinely get asked by friends who come to visit if these were barracks at some point.
