    Enjoying every minute

    4.5/5 Dionndrea H. on Jun 4, 2022

    I’ve lived here for over 10years. I love this building. I I feel that all the staff from management to maintenance to security are very good at what they do and they are always professional, friendly helpful and courteous. I like the improvements I’ve seen over time especially Aesthetically with the Outside, Lobby and hallways, the gym and the common areas. The views are phenomenal especially for pricing. I would definitely recommend my building to anyone.
