    I love the apartments, I love the community but the restrictions and guide lines are outrageous. Recently got my car towed, and I asked for a new parking permit but they claim to not being able to give anymore out. They just have to understand the fact that people lose things. Everyone makes mistakes. And for them to just say no very disappointed in the situation honestly. And they claim to send notice to every unit and I’m the only unit who hasn’t receive anything about towing, I wouldn’t reccomend anyone to these apartments because they racially discriminize you. Thank you
