    5/5 Lori on Sep 7, 2023

    As this building is brand new, it has all the latest appliances and amenities. Security is top-notch with video surveillance and key-fob access to the building and common areas. The staff are wonderful people who truly care about the property and the residents. They have been working very hard since Day One to ensure everything is in order and every resident is comfortable in their new home. I have found the other residents to also be friendly, helpful, and respectful to each other. That makes a great community.
