Good price but far from campus
I live near the intersection of 400 and I-285. I have never had any problems. The management is fine. The price is reasonable. The only complaint I have is that it takes about 30 minutes to get to campus on a weekday, 15 on the weekend.
Comfortable and Beautiful
I love living at Arium Pinnacle Ridge. It's a beautiful complex with trees and green space. The apartments are nice--I live in one that is updated. One of the things I love about it is that it doesn't feel like I'm living in a box. There is nothing "square" (or rectangular) about any of the rooms! It's quite a unique place. The grounds upkeep here is great and the place always looks beautiful. They have food trucks come every so often, pool parties, and other events that engage the community. They also have a dog park where I've met plenty of friendly dogs and residents. It's very quiet here--I can tell there's a good mix of graduate students and professionals here with a few families w/kids. Maintenance is always around in case there's a need. I have had a wonderful experience here and would 100% recommend this complex to friends, students, and others considering moving to this area.
Pay half the price at Arium
I've enjoyed my 1.5 years at Arium at Pinnacle Ridge. Management and maintenance are very quick to respond to requests. Rent is half of what you would pay for Berkshire 9 or other places near the student bars. The location here is very convenient to lots of restaurants, Target, The Fuqua School of Business, and the Duke Law School. Parking is easy, and they accept pets. I haven't had any security concerns here. The Durham bus stops are nearby if necessary.
Quiet, well-managed, family-friendly complex
The property is maintained well and all facilities (pool, gym, business center, tennis courts, car wash) are in good condition. Management and staff are friendly and responsive.
Lots of families live here, while relatively few single students live in the complex. As a result, it's quieter than some of the other complexes inhabited by undergraduate and graduate students.
The location is great; it is close to several major grocery stores, and has easy access to i-40 and the airport. If you have a car, it is a 15 minute drive to campus.
Arium Pinnacle has a good price and the quality of the room is really good. Good deal!
Great Value For Money
Great Apt, Sad to Leave
I had to move, and honestly I spent all my time trying to find its equal. Pinnacle Ridge is great for young professionals and grad students. It's quiet, well-managed, and safe. I loved it.
Good deal, good living
The staff is incredibly helpful. It is a great deal with excellent amenities (pool, gym, etc). I feel very safe and have never had any issues with neighbors. It has excellent access to main roads, enabling quick drives to Durham, Chapel Hill, etc. I have no regrets in choosing this place, and would recommend it!
Not bad, but they keep raising the price
Even split between students and families. Has small gym space and a really nice pool area. Lots of shade and trees, animal friendly and convenient location near Target, movie theater and other shopping. My apartment has an older style in terms of cabinets and appliances, but there are different levels of "trim" since they renovate apartments individually, so modernization varies even though floor plan is the same.
Arium Pinnacle Ridge is a Good Value
My wife and I have had a good experience at Arium Pinnacle Ridge. It is quiet and safe. Management is friendly. Neighbors are respectful and either professional or graduate students (lots of Duke Law students). There are plenty of nearby residential areas to walk our dog. The amenities (pool, tennis court, and gym) are nice. Short, easy commute to Fuqua. Best of all, the price is really good. One of the only downsides is that there are hardly any other Fuqua students that live here. So, it can feel a bit separated from the Fuqua community. But, overall, I think it is a really good value.
Great lounge and fitness center!
Love playing pool in the lounge or working out in the fitness center! The equipment is very up to date and can adequately accommodate each of my legs, abs, and arms days! The view from my apartment is great as well! It really gives me a sense of ATL, city living!
Great for Tech Students
Just a short walk from Georgia Tech's campus. Prices are comparable to on-campus housing. There is a beautiful pool, gym, game room, and coffee bar. Apartments look great and the management is fantastic! Parking is free and the location is great. I only have great things to say about Tenside!
Great Place to Live!
Pros: Tenside is a beautiful apartment complex and the staff is extremely helpful. The amenities are great (free computers and printing, free tea/coffee/snacks in the cafe), and the gym is very nice. The apartment itself is wonderful, with real tile floors and granite countertop... Very clean and upscale.
Cons: Parking has become more difficult in the past few months. My car has been booted once. The walls are thin and it is sometimes easy to hear neighbors above you. The mail system is not very structured.
Nice apartment, terrible management
Management is not responsive and downright insulting the majority of the time. Incidents include failing to fix toilet bowl water leaking into apartment, claiming that mold growing from building leaks was just a "fact of life" and having security threaten to call the cops on residents hosting a mother's day dinner in communal areas at 9 pm despite granting them written permission to be there, booting residents car with a booting company that would be unreachable for hours at a time. The building itself is nice and security is good apart from the parking garage, but I would never subject myself to such management practices again.
Beware: lots of flooding has occurred at the Manor. My apartment flooded from the ceiling and my friend's did as well. The parking situation is a bit stressful, but you really can't beat the location. Access to the apartment from both Roswell Road and Piedmont makes for an easy commute as well.
