Belmont Review

Pros to living at the Belmont:
- Close to the Lasalle Loop bus stop. If you prefer to walk to the engineering quad for class it takes 15-20 min max from the apartment complex. One of the most important items for me choosing the Belmont was the location to campus.
- The gym is brand new and has extensive amount of free weights, machines, and a separate cardio room with free space for your own exercises.
- The management hosts get togethers in the clubhouse and provides food. Great way to meet others as well as voice any concerns to management.
- The maintenance is very quick to respond to issues (usually within 24 hours) and the online maintenance portal is very efficient to use to put in a request.
- The floor plans are spacious and clean. The Belmont keeps the outside of the apartments looking well, landscape is a priority for them, and the place is well-lit at night when you come home from campus.
- The Belmont is also quieter than most. Much more graduate students and early career professionals living in the area than other apartment complexes.
- Parking is extensive, no need for a permit as there is plenty of space, and there is no need for visitor parking - your friends can park close to our apartment.
- There is a package locker pick up area. Your packages (if they are small or average sized) will be placed in the locker area and you can pick it up at your convenience. Very nice if you are away for the weekend or aren't home. Larger packages will be placed on your doorstep.
- You are able to pick your apartment based on the available apartments. So if you want an apartment that gets a lot of sun, you can choose an apartment with a location that would get afternoon sun. If you want an apartment close to the clubhouse or away from the main gate, you can choose an apartment like that from the available apartments.

Expensive

The houses are wood made. Some electrical utilities are old. It was unsafe during Nov 2018. Now there are police guarding to community.

Leasing and gym is not bad.

Finding Housing is complicated

I lived at the Belmont for the past year. When I got my apartment, it was very popular and you needed to lock your lease in very early (march). This past October and November, the apartment complex experienced many incidents including armed robberies, one of which occurred at 8pm (that's early). As a response, some people moved out because they didn't feel safe anymore. I admit I didn't feel safe anymore either, but I didn't move out. The apartment complex hired security, which is on property 6pm-6am. There haven't been any incidents since, I am writing this at the end of January. To be fair, there have been incidents in the surrounding apartments as well, so it is not a Belmont problem only. There is a security alarm in the apartment, which I use regularly. Even though it is "gated" community, the gate is open all the time during the day, and it is often broken. Other than the security concerns, I am happy with the apartment and the community overall. The apartment is a little old.

Overall Good

I am actually pretty satisfied with the Belmont Apartment. It has a nice view of forest, lake, and grassland. Besides, there is a pool, a gym and the lounge where we can all relax. And transportation is also very convenient. I even made a lot of friends here.
But in the past semester, there were five armed robberies happened in the Belmont Apartment, which reflected a severe safety problem. Even if the community make some remedies, but we are still quite worried.
One last thing, the rent is a bit high.

Safety problem in Belmont

Last thanksgiving, there were 7 robs in Belmont. But, on the other hand, now police will go around during night so the safety in Belmont can be ensured somehow. By the way, the manager here is really nice, he tried everything to retrieve the safety and allowed us to move out before the end of contract.

Great place, but some important cons

It's a great place, nice apartments with exceptional views and the clubhouse is amazing too. Gym membership is included and there is also a pool. In general you may think this is THE place.

BUT, there were armed robberies/break-ins in the back side of the property. The owners response was very commendable and now there is a lot more security, but there are kinks in this armor. Also it is very expensive. We are sharing rooms. If you don't want to, it's almost twice as expensive as Campus Walk (But it is an ungated and a very basic property).

Erwin - LaSalle Reviews

123 reviews
There are food options nearby and most graduate students live in the neighborhood which makes planning social events easy. Not always the safest neighborhood but you always have a group of fellow students looking out for you.
Frequent crime reports.
I myself have woken up at night due to clearly audible shots fired (maybe 1mile away) and once reported a shooting after coming home late around 3AM which turned out to have happened at Duke Manor.
Intrusion may happen, therefore keep the doors locked.
Also, I would try to avoid a 1st floor apartment with direct access through the patio.
The neighborhood is really unsafe and you'll often hear about people get robbed on gunpoint on LaSalle street. There is literally nothing in the area, except a few restaurants at Erwin Street and Krogers which is 15 minute walk from the Heights.
It is highly recommended to not walk around in this area post sunset.
Great and safe neighborhood - quite close to most useful and day to day necessities. I'd say if you're commuting to West Campus it makes most sense for you to stay here!
Living in Erwin-Lasalle is very close to Duke University West campus schools such as Engineering, Environment, Graduate, Medicine.
Close to school. Quiet enough. Duke neurology and Millennium Hotel are nearby. Though no restaurants or stores nearby.
The neighbourhood is safe during the day, but make sure to stay indoors and not wander during the night.
Campus Walk is well located both in terms of proximity to both the campus and basic amenities. However, after 6 pm at nights, the neighbourhood gets very lonely which makes it all the more unsafe to venture.
Recently there have been many break-ins in and around apartments in the neighbourhood, although no one was harmed.
