    4.5/5 Will P. on Dec 2, 2023

    Great value, quiet neighbors, easy to walk my dog to the Capitol building

    4/5 Veronica T. on Aug 28, 2021

    We moved in during the Pandemic and have been pleased with the accommodations here. Maintenance has always been prompt and, I assume, with new ownership and a ticket system, it will only get better. Some of the neighbors have been very inconsiderate with their parking - only 1 spot per apartment so everyone else must park on the street. Guests should not be parking on random curbs. You hear the train sometimes and the walls aren't very thick - we had some decorations knocked down from work being done on the other side - but overall, as long as your neighbors aren't running a Zumba class outside, it's pretty quiet. Nice water pressure, pretty views from the balcony, and the spiral stairs for 3rd floor apartments are a nice talking point.
