    Printer's Square Apartments is a great place to live with its amenities, secured entrance, and commute to almost any destination to get to. Its close to all sorts of transportation and having access to the fitness area is a great fit for exercise regime. A great place to live and affordable for its location.

    I've been living here for a couple months and I love the area. It is very quiet at night, but only a short walk to the bars. It's also only a 15 minute drive to the Canton area.

    Very good partnership with the Leasing office staff. I spend 7 years and half. The very good thing about the community is the design. I usually recommend my friends and family members to move in my community.
