Terrible Apartment with Terrible Management

Not to be a debbie downer but this is an absolutely awful complex. Management is unresponsive to maintenance requests, there is trash all over the complex property (even though we pay an absurd monthly fee). The gated community does not have working gates, the property is wide open.

Overly expensive for what you get

I would not recommend this apartment complex. It is more expensive than most other comparable apartment complexes but the apartments and amenities are dated. Furthermore, the leasing company is not particularly helpful (though in the past few months they have improved). Apartment complex is loud and the entire property is poorly kept and commonly dirty. Pros: Location, Free Parking, Pet Friendly (with fee)

AMAZING LOCATION!

You really can't beat the location of this building. If you want to happy hour, there's a sports bar next door. If you want a bite to eat, there are amazing restaurants all up and down Congress including Hopdoddy's and Homeslice. This complex is very pet friendly and you meet a lot of people at the pool. Overall great experience.

Perfect location for young adults

Great location right on south congress. walking distance to hopdoddy's etc. The pool is great in the summertime, lots of fun guests and pool parties. The apartments are huge, especially in three bedrooms like my own. Maintenance is fast, but the management and parking situation is a little bit of a mess. Would recommend.

Great Location, not worth $

They totally take advantage of every fee they can. They even changed the free parking to make everyone pay. They make you pay for every little thing including $50 a month for trash valet service. Also, had a robbery situation and failed to tell anyone.

You get what you pay for

CityView at SoCo is a great location and it is cheaper than the other apts in the area, but it is because the place is built INCREDIBLY CHEAP! Stuff is always broken, you can hear through the walls, you know when your neighbors are getting personal... They tried to make people start buying "premium" parking spots by turning half of the garage into "premium parking". If you show up after 8, good luck parking at the apt. You'll probably have to park down the street and walk back. I've personally caught someone stealing bikes out of the garage and after the office was notified about it? They didn't report it back to the tenants.

Great Location and low cost

While the apartment is not the nicest in the world, I have really enjoyed living there because the location is incredible and I am paying much less than being downtown. Cityview is right across the south congress bridge so walking distance to downtown and you are right on south congress as well. Don't live here if you are looking for great amenities.

Cityview at SoCo

This has been the worst experience so far - way too expensive, way too noisy. It's like I am living in a frat house! The location is nice, but it is not worth the cost. The neighbors leave trash outside the doors on the weekends, the clubhouse is trashed almost every weekend, and people are making noise outside all of the time, I can barely sleep at night.

Amazing location, lots of charges added onto rent

This is the best location. Don't be fooled by the rent price they tell you go. You get at least an additional 200 added on with utilities and cable every month when all is said and done. Also the management is a little weird... frequently changing policies

South River City Reviews

10 reviews
Great neighborhood to visit, just alright to live in.

- There are lots of restaurants but few are quick serve and many are pricey, so they get old fast.
- Very nice to be next to Zilker and Town Lake, but we don't use it as often as we could. - Being close to a large park that hosts lots of large events and located at a major intersection (Barton Springs and S. Lamar), there are lots of drunks, bad drivers, litterers, and homeless people. Also, lots of aggressive bikers illegally using the sidewalk which makes walking your dog a nuisance.
This complex is south of the river, and south of all the shops/restaurants on South Congress. This makes it close enough to walk to those venues if you want to, but it's also nice to be a little bit separate to the really crowded area.
It is convenient to getting on Town Lake and going down town. Within a few miles of HEB and Trader Joe's. There are a few sketchy people but if you keep your stuff locked up or in your apt you should be fine.
Cute area - close to South Congress / Downtown
Area is great!
Most of MBAs stay north of the river for socializing.
Safe neighborhood.
Lots of families.
Close to one convenience store/gas station.
Close to one bar/restaurant. 5 minute drive to South Congress/Downtown Very quiet. Close to I-35 highway. Pet friendly. Walkable.
Living on South Congress is awesome... close to work and social life.
