Not worth it

I've lived her for a couple of years and the only good thing left is maintenance. Vince and Kyle are wonderful and always willing to help any way possible, especially one reoccurring issues which is pretty much the only thing that kept me here for so long. Management has changed many times and the new people do not make any effort what so ever to get to know old tenants at this location. They charge a fine for every little thing you do wrong. Parking costs $100 a month and it's super hard to find parking during the day. More than half of the spots are reserved for VCU and every unreserved spot is super small so you're only about 10 inches away from the car next to you which causes your car to have a lot of random scratches on it from opening doors. The "free" printer is never working, it's always broken and the trash chutes have been closed for months so you have to go downstairs and out the door to throw your trash away. The walls are really thin so you can hear a good amount going on in the halls and next door. The movie theater and club room is really nice if they are not reserved which is all the time so don't expect to see them that often. The cons definitely outweigh the pros and I don't find it to be worth it anymore. There are also never any community events.

Pay more, get less

I pay more then in my previos flat but get less. No pool, no community event, no trash shute. Package service is a bad joke. Flat doesn,t look like in the pictures. VCU is close this is the only good thing.

Dont waste your time

The management is awful and careless. They have been conducting renovations since I moved in. Trash chutes have not been fixed. Sidewalks are blocked off. Maintenance says they will come to an emergency in 15 minutes, but took an hour. The elevator takes you to different floors, other than what you press. More than half of the spots are reserved for VCU. The printer never has ink/is always broken. "Free" wifi in community areas is really bad. Just poor quality apartments.

Can't wait to move out!

Few pros, many cons. Pros: Neighborhood: restaurants, cafés, small shops, banks, parks are in walking distance. Good location for public transportation. Amenities: great gym, movie theater and bike storage/repair room, club room. Apartment: our 2 bedroom/2 bathroom flat is very spacious. Huge living room with hardwood floors, bedrooms are big enough for king size beds, a lot of storage space and big walk-in closets. Kitchen appliances in good condition, washer/dryer work well. No issues with plumbing or bugs. Cons: poor management: 3 different property managers in a year. Higher management ignores any kind of complaint or request. Never ending renovation, closed trash shutes, patios, sidewalks and one exit of parking garage. Noise: paper thin walls, loud elevators, loud HVAC system, loud traffic, loud residents, mainly students. Most of parking spots reserved for VCU, impossible to find a spot during the day. Can’t wait to move out.

The sooner the lease is up, the better

Apartment is nice, but not the best quality and certainly over-priced, very expensive in comparison to other apartments nearby. There does not seem to be any equity in what is charged. Trash shutes and patios have been closed for months, due to renovation. No end in sight. Multiple management teams within a year. There seems to be no organization or communication between on-site manager and higher management. Had some issues with vandalism, more security cameras should be installed in the future. Windows are poorly insulated, allowing excessive street/traffic noise. Thin walls, you can hear everything your neighbors say or do. You also hear people walking down the hall, doors closing, dogs, etc. I've never lived anywhere with sound issues like this. Parking is a problem, there is no guest parking, the rate of garage parking is way too high and the space is very tiny, it's a pain to get in and out. The internet service is slow; residents are not notified when their packages arrive; not as clean as it was initially in the common areas; move in fees were too high. They charge you for everything, there is a fee to process paperwork. Nonrefundable pet deposit and additional monthly rent … Overall, the sooner the lease is up, the better.
