The Flats - Great Place, Great Location

The leasing staff, Sierra was AWESOME, she got me in my apartment the same day right after New Years. The place is clean and has updated styling and close to most everything.

The flats

Neighbors were yelling very loud fighting but it’s calmed down and it’s quiet now. Wish the edging or baseboards were updated they are all scuffed up and edging around the bathtub is damaged.
