I am a current resident but don't think that I would recommend this apartment (or the related MacLaren Hill next door) to anyone. While I think that the apartments are nice and reasonable, I am more concerned with the safety of the area and residents. There have been many car break-in and burglary in the past few months. I was a victim to an attempted burglary of my vehicle that resulted in vandalism. The management is aware of these events that have happened but do not seem to be taking any steps to improve the area and prevent these incidents from happening. Suggestions have been given to management to help improve these grounds/area/residents but they seem to be ignored. While much of the vandalism has been in the parking areas at this time I am concerned that it may move to the apartments and put residents at some sort of risk. I will admit that I am naive when it comes to stuff like this, but I really don't trust this area and would not recommend this location to a friend.
While the staff is nice and easy to get along with, I think public safety in the area is the main concern and don’t feel anything is being done about it to improve the area.
The train tracks are very close and REALLY loud. It make it hard to have your windows open because it is hard to talk to others or listen to the TV when they go by. They go by really often. If you are a light sleeper, this place won’t be for you.
