Large one bedroom (2 bed and studio as well, but this review refers only to 1 bed) apartments with many of the original art deco era details, including the plaster walls and wood floors. Neighbors are friendly, mix of older and graduate students, and younger couples. Great location easy to get to EL, and the bus is right outside. The price is very reasonable considering the area, though I'm told from neighbors they raise it a bit each year.
I would be very cautious when choosing to move into this complex. I recently moved here. Unfortunely it is not what it appears to be on the web. I will say however, my perception is my own deception! You will have to decide what works for you. I will not influence you either way. I do recommend you be very cautious.
I love living here! Ever since new management took over they have been making many improvements such as a brand new gym and updated the apartments. Staff is very professional and timely. It is also close to transportation which is good for me since I have no car. Zip car is on-site as well.
