    My only complaint: i would love to use the dog park but its more like a gaint litter box and a health hazard for dogs. Would love to see it cleaned and a crack down on residents picking up after their dogs in there

    I had to find a place to live extremely quick because I accepted a new job here in NC & had 1 week to move up from Florida. I called & explained my situation to Jessica & she was so incredibly helpful! After hopping on a video call, she gave me a quick tour of the complex & the floor plan I had been interested in. Her friendliness & wealth of knowledge was one of the reasons I knew this was the place I wanted to be! The amenities are incredibly nice & I love my apartment. The move-in process was super smooth & the leasing office makes sure you are well aware of the policies & understand what you are signing in your lease. I wish every apartment complex was like this!
