Local Reviews

Most importantly that it's quite. There is not any crime, no siren sounds at night. I like going to the nail shop across from the Aldi grocery store about a mile away.

I like how safe I feel going on walk and runs. I can walk to Starbucks. There is enough sidewalks so I can go on runs, and it's very quiet and reserved here.

It has got many groceries story near by. It has also got good transportation I also we have some good neighbor community., I really like the community. We have got some good restaurants and bars near the community

I like that there is a bus to my school there. It is also close to the train. The people at the leasing office are pretty helpful for problems.

My community have nearby stores, drug stores, and fast food restaurants. We also available public transportation within walking distance.

The neighborhood is well maintained.We have a clubhouse for use by residents to use for meetings There is a gym open 24 hours for residents. Snacks, coffee,water and sodas are available to all residents.
