Overall the experience here is great. I think some of the appliances should be replaced/renovated considering the price of rent here, but I have no major complaints.

People smoke marijuana, dogs pee in hallways, crazy people keep yelling in hallways (Mostly on weekends). Parking is good and secure. Apartments are clean with hardwood floor and W/D in unit.
