I love these apts. and love to be notified for availability of a one bedroom,asap!
These apartments are bedbug and cockroach infested. The management does their best to remedy the problem, but simple heat treatments and pesticides are not enough. The pests just travel from one unit to another. No matter how clean or uncluttered you keep your unit, the problems still exist. Many tenants are used to living with these pests and do not report it as they should. It is obvious that the tenants do not care where they reside because trash is always in the parking lot and surrounds the dumpsters. Parents send their children to carry out heavy trash bags that never make it in the dumpster so the neighborhood strays and wildlife get into the bags stringing trash every where. During the summer, the pool is closed constantly due to residents swimming in their clothing (I mean completely dressed down to socks) which alter the chemicals/pH balance in the pool. One slide on the playground is made of sheet metal which is extremely hot during the summer, but the management did install a newer playground closer to the pool area. The management does strive to do their best to repair issues, but are lacking on maintenance staff. Because of the age of these apartments the windows and door frames are a source of energy loss all season. If you happen to opt for a "renovated" unit, you will receive new lighting/faucet fixtures, door knocker, new carpet, tile (not new) flooring in dinning area, hallways, and bathrooms. The appliances will be outdated. Units with "laundry rooms" are tight so if you own a newer washer/dryer I suggest you check dimensions first. Within the "laundry room" the furnace is housed also and the condensation from the ac just leaks into a hole in the floor which smells awful during the winter. I had to pour pure bleach down into the hole to stop the smell 1-2 times a week. The management installed water saving shower heads and faucet fixtures that spray water everywhere if turned up too much. Taking a shower means using the hot water more because it is like a mist of cold needles, in turn, raising the power bill. Hopefully the new investor/management will get wise and just tent each building and gas it to rid them of pest at one time.
