Brand new, I’ve loved it

Excellent location, staff is friendly and helpful, maintenance requests are completed same day. Can be loud depending on where your apartment is

Almost perfect

Very nice, new units. Great amenities. Perfect Franklin Street location. Lots of students (graduate and undergraduate). Building management is less organized than they should be (growing pains for new building).

Great Building and Location But Pricey

Hard to get a better location and better amenities. Large, new gym that I've never seen more than 7 or 8 people in at a given time (usually just 1 or 2), and walking distance to Bob's, He's Not, and all other restaurants and amenities on Franklin. Living on top of a Target/Starbucks in addition to your gym and pool is obviously a wealth of convenience.

It's expensive though. On top of what's already one of the highest rents in Chapel Hill, you also have to pay for parking (~$125/mo) and your own water, electric, and cable/internet. Not to mention application fees and possibly move-in and amenity fees.

Great location / property management is not good

Carolina Square is a great choice for its location next to Franklin street. It is very easy to hang out with 1st year classmates in this location. It also isn't too inconvenient to get to school by bike or walking. Good amount of people here that have a car so carpooling has not been an issue either. Downside is the property management company running this operation is utterly incompetent. I mean utterly. While they have been good of fixing maintenance issues, the staff has totally messed up the parking situation for residents, often has to do lots of work on the building as they missed steps in the original build process, losses residents mail extremely frequently, et cetera. They are the worst management company I have ever dealt with, but that being said, the location is so great we are all staying here second year.

About Franklin Street

Franklin Street is Chapel Hill's hub for UNC students, with plenty of options for nightlife and dining. As such, the area tends to be a bit noisier and a lot more crowded than other neighborhoods around Chapel Hill but you won't find a more happening spot. Popular music venues include The Station, L...

Franklin Street Reviews

The house is on a dead-end street with a bunch of other rental homes. Almost the entire street is occupied with undergrads attending UNC. It can get a little noisy some nights due to parties, but that only happens maybe once a month. If you walk to the end of the dead end street, there's a small path that pops out right next to Carolina Ale House on Franklin Street.
Great location. Access to everything Chapel Hill and Carrboro has to offer
Best area of chapel hill with restaurants, bars, lots going on
Hardcore college town - I love it, but not for everyone.
Good location, walkable to Franklin St. and campus
Lots to do and fun to be able to walk to bars/restaurants/etc.
Walking distance to all bars and restaurants, living on the west end also walkable to Carrboro

10 minute drive to school and grocery

Borders a rough neighborhood behind Rosemary Street so must always keep doors locked and never walk home alone.

Depending on where you live it can be noisy with undergrads - steer clear of The Warehouse Apartments and Chancellor Square that are next to Bobs on either side.
