Great Place!!The girls at the front desk are always helpfully, had no problem getting my apartment and moving my stuff in. Life is easy.
I got here the first day and they helped me move in right away!
Great place to live! Amenities are amazing. Friendly staff. Very helpful. Close to everything. Glad to call IPA home.
Awesome staff , very helpful, and the apartments look amazing! Great gym and its 24hr!
This place is very convenient to Fort Lee. It's literary 300 meters out of the gate. You have to see it to believe it. I loved it. The staff was always offering freebees and there were always community activities to enjoy. Among the activities there were pool parties, karaoke, and other family oriented events. I was there during the summer months and I do not know if this is true for the rest of the year.The staff also walks you thru the process and try to help you as much as they can. The price is a no brainer. By living so near the post, you save money in gas and get to sleep a little longer in the mornings.What I found more convenient was to have a gym opened 24/7. The gym is not big but it had all the machines I needed and was always relatively empty. I felt very secure going to the gym at 10 pm. No one can enter the gym unless they were residents (had a key). The other extra was the TV in the gym. In the afternoons many families gather in the sand playground to have their kids play. It feels like a big community but it is small. There were lots of cars but I always managed to park my car within 25 meters of my apartment. I think that you can also purchase a parking space but I think that it is useless because there is always parking.The dumpster is in its own building and is not an eye sore spectacle. It is away from the apartments but accessible to all. It has a window that you open and thought the garbage there. It was a great experience and I will recommend it.
The staff at Independence Place were very helpful and hospitable. Each member (Lisa, Tiffany and Stacey) all ensured that none of my questions went unanswered. This is one of the first apartments where the pictures online matched the actual onsite location. So far, I'm proud to be called a "resident" of this community and I'm confident that the initial impression that I received will last until the day I move out.
IF you want to stay in Fort LEE VA as a foreign soldier, Independence Place is the best choice. I'm a korean Major and attending Military course in ALU. I worried about loging before coming to USA in Korea. But I am satisfied with great good apartment perfectly now. Staffs are very kind. Facilities are very clean and convenient. I recommand this apartment strongly~
I moved into Independence Place April 2013. When my finacee and I first took a tour of this place, it was something that we instantly fell in love with. The process was so quick, after saying that we loved the place we were able to apply and get approved that day. The place is great from the start because your able to do short/long leases whichever one is good for you, you can get it furnished or unfurnished as well. Its in a great place, being close to the base, having plenty of restaurants around and other necessities that you may need. Me and my finacee went with the furnished and ever since we moved in we have loved it, plus the rent is so reasonably if you really think about it. Its close to both of our jobs and great pricing, we love it so much that at first we signed a 6 month lease, we both knew it was great to us so we signed a new 1 year lease. If your looking for something with a quiet neighborhood, great apartments and pricing, Independence place is the place for you.
I moved to Independence Place Apartments (IP) in March 2013. I am attending school at Fort Lee Army Base and needed a nice place to stay for 18 months, all bills paid and that was very close to the base. They are located directly accross the street from Fort Lee and offers short term or long term lease agreements. When I am on Temporary Duty (TDY) with the Army, I am able to save my place and pay part of the rent while away on official duty. Other options are if there is an IP apartments at my next duty station I can move there without filling and paying any applications fees and still return back to Virginia by saving my place when done with my TDY obligation. I was looking for somthing that was affordable, furnished and a place were I did not have to share signing a lease with anyone else. They offered just that. I am currently on my own lease agreement and share one of the 4 bedroom apartments which is very roomy and furnished. Cable, internet and utilities are included in the rent. I have my own full bathroom in my room, walkin closet and furniture. The entry to my room is secured with two locks, bolt lock and bottom lock. I share the common areas such as the living, kitchen and laundry that is equiped with full size washer and dryer. This apartment offers the top of the line amenities, computer center, exercise room, pool, gameroom and more. Also, the staff is awesome and friendly. You got to check them out, you won't be dissapointed. I wasn't and I came all the way from San Antonio and took care of all the application process online several months before my arrival.
I moved to Independece Place Dec 2011 and stay here for about 6 months and then moved out. I had to leave for TDY because im in the military when I came bcak to Va. I looked around and other places was just to small and cost to much. Guess what I end up moving back to Independence place and be here since, August of 2012. I love it fully furnish everything included, you cant beat that. Its great for Military personnel who come here for school or TDY. I moving out july 3rd PCSing to Fort Jackson. I loved the area and will definetly miss Mrs Stacey she a great LandLord and very understanding. Thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
