Franklin Residences

I gave "Noise" two stars because the street noise is very apparent, even on high floors. I realize the solution is cost prohibitive, entailing replacement of the existing windows with modern sound proof windows. It is also very difficult to open and close these windows when fresh air is desired; perhaps a program to rectify this condition would be feasible.

Franklin Love <3

We love the franklin!!! The only thing we can think of to add would be to have a dedicated dog area somewhere in the building for the dogs to play/relieve themselves if the weather is terrible. Even without that, the staff makes our day! And I love getting restful sleep without worrying about outside noise.

Great Place to Live!

Everything about the FR is absolutely great. The front desk staff, maintenance, amenities (office, gym, great lobby, and resident events), and location are all top tier. Depending on what floor you're on, the noise is nearly non-existent and the parking garage is a great perk especially when weather isn't too great. We loved our time at the FR.
