As a recent college graduate moving to Durham from out of state, I don't think I could've picked a better plac Read Moree to settle into. From such a prime location, I am a 10-15 minute walk from virtually anywhere in downtown Durham--restaurants, bars, music and theatre venues, salons, boutiques, and other businesses. Furthermore, staff is always friendly, maintenance is prompt, there are more than enough parking spaces, and the pool and gym are always open and well-maintained.

Its a little too expensive for what it is, too cookie cutter to charge the prices they do.

Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely place to live, in a convenient location. However, I feel like the amount Read MoreI pay in rent is not necessarily met with value in kind. Furthermore, be warned that it can be VERY difficult if you live in an apartment that is on the side of the building with the bus station -- the bright lights stay on until 2 in the morning, and the buses are louder than you might think!

Everything was great until Tri-Bridge bought out the complex. The staff, cleanliness and management went downh Read Moreill quickly. The apt social events went from weekly to quarterly (at most). Mainance request were never done in a timely manner if ever completed. We didn't have AC for the last few months (durning the summer) because Tri-Bridge didn't want to pay for 3rd party repairs without a warranty. There was also a parking deck fiasco that resulted in us parking away from the building in winter.
