Walkable neighborhood and easy to get to campus

This is a good alternative to downtown if you're looking for a walkable neighborhood but want to pay less than $1k/roommate.

Floorplans:
Floorplans are nice and spacious. However, there are no luxury options so your apartment will not have granite countertops or wood floors. Most units are carpet.

Amenities:
The biggest downsides are the amenities. The gym is very small and there isn't a good place to study in the complex. The office staff however is friendly/competent. There is a pool with nice grills for cooking out. Behind the apartment there is a park with a half mile gravel path to run on.

Management:
As this is a Gables property it is professionally run by responsive and concerned people. My only complaint is that they will try to increase your rent every year by 10% and you will have to try to talk them out of it by threatening to move.

Neighbors:
This apartment attracts the quieter undergrad/grad student types as well as some families. I've never heard a party in this complex. There is a playground outside of the Central Market right next to the park so this would probably a good option for students with children as well.

Additionally, recently pest control has been coming by once a week to set traps in the attic crawlspace. After talking with other residents it sounds like my building is the only one they're having issues with and they are taking care of it. I have not seen any sign of rodents in my apartment as they are only in the attic space.
