    5/5 Andrew on Oct 3, 2023

    Building is clean, well maintained, very new. Everyone is very nice and i feel safe and happy here

    4.5/5 Anonymous on Oct 2, 2023

    We've lived here for 2 months now and we've had a great experience. We were concerned about being on a road but the road noise from the 5th floor is mostly unnoticeable except for the occasional loud muscle car. The lower floors should actually be quieter. The apartments are immaculate except for ants which the office has been very helpful in taking care of. We enjoy all the amenities and the grilling areas are very nice as well. The apartments come with covered ceiling hookups in the living room and each room for a ceiling fan or lights. We loved this because it let us customize the look of our home even further. The building has monthly happy hours for residents to get to know each other as well. In summary, we've enjoyed our time here and love the building.
