I Love Where I Live!

Modern apartments. Spacious floor plans with lots of storage and huge closets. There is a large pool, sitting pool and hot tub on a beautiful patio with a couple fire pits. The office staff is great. On site maintenance resolved issues quickly. Nice lobby for studying wth free coffee 24/7. Pool table, shuffle board and ping pong table. Security staff for after hours. Nice location next to a bunch of food and highway access. Pet friendly. Monthly happy hours and other events. I have no complaints! But not A lot of public transport nearby so car recommended. (P.S. If you check Cortona or it’s sister apt. Encore and decide to live please, PLEASE say Farrah Pruskauer referred you! 🙂)

Great Place for Student Housing

I love staying at the Cortona. The Management Team is always nice and prompt to deal with any concerns. It is 'luxury' apartment living, and they have to amenities to assure that. Their free gym is fully large and equipped, and it faces the beautiful pool patio. They have a couple fire pits and sitting areas outside for gatherings too (The official rule is that residents may only have 2 guests at the pool at a time though). The most important part for me is the safe neighborhood. It is in a nice area with lower crime rate compared to the other parts of st. Louis, so I feel comfortable walking to the yoga studio across the park at night. The night security and parking surveillance give me more assurance. Cortona also just installed new packaging security, to ensure each resident gets their package with no problems. It is not near many bars/ night life scene (that kinda comes along with being in a safer neighborhood though). There is ALOT of storage space.

Great place to live

Fantastic atmosphere to live. Leasing agents are nice and helpful. It's really community living. You get to know your neighbors and build friendships outside of law school.
