    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

    4.5/5 Carol A. on Mar 9, 2023

    My husband and I have lived here for the past year and have been happy with the community. The staff is wonderful to work with and attentive to the needs of the residents and community as a whole.

    This place is really quiet and maintenance is really responsive within a timely manner

    3/5 Anonymous on Jan 28, 2024

    This community used to be a great place to live with amenities that were accessible to all (Not this past summer or last for that matter). Now, prices have increased well past the value for the apartments, the office staff feel detached from the people who live here and the people living in the complex have stopped caring about the rules (noise, parking and trash) and the environment of the community. This is a such a pretty complex. The apartments are old (old appliances, rugs and color scheme) and need to be updated..

    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!

Charlotte, NC in the news

Living in Charlotte, NC

Living in location

Charlotte - the largest city in North Carolina - is a haven of natural beauty situated in the heart of Mecklenburg County, which is 10 miles outside of the South Carolina border. Charlotte renters are 55 miles west of Durham, N.C.; 90 miles southwest of Greensboro, N.C.; 130 miles north of Columbia, S.C.; 130 miles east of Fayetteville, N.C.; and 165 miles southwest of Raleigh, N.C. Renting in Charlotte offers a unique blend of city amenities and thriving business and art communities. Charlotte also attracts young professional renters who are looking to further careers within the large city's growing management, business, insurance, health care and computer technology sectors. To that end, many renters work in the three largest industries in Charlotte: banking (Bank of America is one of the many Fortune 500 companies with Charlotte headquarters), technology and manufacturing. There are also Fortune 500 companies and 30 Fortune 1000 companies located in Charlotte. When renting in Charlotte, public education is provided by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS).

Charlotte's charm isn't just in its vibrant economic landscape; it's also a city that celebrates its green spaces and outdoor activities. With an array of parks, like the famous Freedom Park and the expansive Reedy Creek Park, renters and visitors alike can enjoy hiking, biking, and family picnics amidst beautiful scenery.

Renting in Charlotte, NC

Charlotte has the perfect neighborhood for every renter's lifestyle. Namely, uptown Charlotte appeals to younger renters with its proximity to museums (such as the Mint Museum Uptown and the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art), parks, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and the Bank of America Stadium (home of the NFL Panthers). Meanwhile, Elizabeth - a mixed-use neighborhood in a less bustling part of the city - offers apartment rentals conveniently close to nightlife, offices and retail spaces. Or, the South End is a reinvigorated hotspot filled with bars, boutiques, art galleries and trendy hangouts - and most of the crowd are renters. Dilworth is another hip neighborhood with a renting majority, as well as some amazing houses for rent with 20th-century architecture. Otherwise, Plaza Midwood apartments boast a charming mix of Colonial, Victorian, and Tudor styles, alongside boutique shopping and fantastic local BBQ spots, like Midwood Smokehouse.

Things for renting

Shopping in Charlotte, NC

Renters in Charlotte have access to a wide variety of incredible posh shopping hotspots. Notably, the most popular shopping malls when renting in Charlotte are in SouthPark: Renters looking for upscale fashions go to SouthPark Mall for Louis Vuitton; Tory Burch; Tiffany & Co.; and Neiman Marcus. Or, Phillips Place is another popular SouthPark mall where renters will find Marmi, Orvis and Brooks Brothers. Similarly, in South End, Atherton Mill & Market is a renovated industrial space with Living Kitchen, Free People, Anthropologie, Savory Spice Shop and Madewell. Rentals in South Charlotte are also near Sleep Poet Antique Mall - the largest vintage and antique mall in the city. And, for popular boutique stores, renters choose Loakle by Hygge; Scott & Molly; Boem; Capitol; Girl Tribe; and The Sporting Gent.

Transportation in Charlotte, NC

Plus, CATS buses are equipped with bike racks and are wheelchair-accessible, and there are additional paratransit services for qualifying renters. Alternatively, the LYNX Blue Line is a light rail system that connects South Charlotte renters to UNC Charlotte with 26 stations. Renters rely on this popular option to travel to uptown Charlotte.
