Courtland Towers is great
I have really liked living here. Everyone is very friendly and it is a pretty quiet place. It’s an 8 minute walk to the metro, very nice gym and other amenities. Maintenance responds to work orders quickly.
Home Sweet Home
The greatest combination of value, location, and amenities. I hope I live here for the rest of my schooling.
Courtland Towers Review
I have absolutely loved my time living here. There are lots of study spaces I can utilize as a student and having a gym, pool, and entertainment center accessible to me without an amenity fee has been so valuable as a student. It's metro accessible and the area is safe and family friendly.
The price is steep but being so close to the school is a dream
The price may be a bit expensive but the amenities are great. Huge study room that my study group always uses, a large game room, best gym I toured, indoor and outdoor pool, and updated units. Also, there is free printing.
There is some renovation noise but it is always during the day during class so it does not bother me.
It is a 5 minute drive from campus and a 3 minute walk to the courthouse metro. However, the grocery store is a bit far if you do not have a car.
The building feels safe and there is 24/7 front desk staff. Two bedroom apartments can get two parking spots. Every room has a walk in closet and every unit has at least one balcony. Unit is spacious and has a lot of natural light.
Quincy Plaza Review
I have been living in Quincy Plaza for 2 months (as of December 2021). The common areas are regularly cleaned (even the hallways on the apartment floors). There are a number of amenities, including a pool, game/event room, quiet rooms, business center (computers and printer), gym, BBQ area. There are 4 floors for resident parking with spacious spots (I drive an SUV and park next to another SUV with no problem). The building is in a good location, between two metro stops and close to grocery stores and a mall (Ballston Quarter). The building appears to be safe, with restricted key fob access for residents.
Virginia Square Plaza has been great. I moved from just down the street in Ballston, and the area is noticeably quieter at night. The front desk staff is very helpful. The only downside has been relying on the metro with all of its problems lately, but overall it's worth it. I am very happy with VSP, and I don't plan on moving until after law school.
Perfect Apartment If You Can Live In Virginia
Exactly what the title says. If you can live in Virginia and commuting to school doesn't bother you (either the bus and the metro or driving), you cannot find a better apartment for the price. Safeway also literally shares the boundary of their parking lot with the complex so groceries and pharmacy needs are only a few hundred feet away. Private en suite bathrooms and walk in closets in every bedroom. Apartment also includes hard wood floors, carpets in the bedrooms, in-unit laundry, dishwasher and garbage disposal, and there's free printing in the communal spaces in the lobby. There's also a big party room downstairs that all residents can use with its own kitchen space and there's access to several gas grills. Technically the complex is pet-free but they have a very simple and easy process to register any and all pets as emotional support animals so they can be in your apartment without breaking the lease. There's also a parking garage for an additional $75/month that requires a key for entry so it's super safe and enclosed! No scraping your car off or worrying about your car getting broken into overnight. This apartment is seriously the best.
The only negative: the walls seem thin within the apartment; like I can't hear my neighbors or people walking in the public halls but I can hear my roommate on the phone in her bedroom while I'm in the kitchen. Maybe other floor plans aren't as bad with this though. Other than that, this apartment is perfect.
Cherry Hill Review
What you would expect
My experience with Richmond Square has been very good. Sometimes the management doesn’t communicate that well, but that also means that they give you your space. Maintenance is done promptly, and our packages are always handled properly. I would recommend Richmond Square.
Affordable Apartment in Excellent Location
So long as you don't intend to break your lease, living in a Northern Virginia Dittmar property is good value for money.
Quincy Plaza Review
I have lived at Quincy for both my 1L and 2L years and think it's really worth the price. The amenities are fantastic, the gym and outdoor pool have remained open during covid but with safety precautions. Quincy is located in Ballston but the walk to the law school is only 10 minutes. The Ballston Quarter which has great places to eat is only a 5 minute walk away, and so is the Virginia Square Starbucks. Before covid I used to go study at the Arlington Central Library which is located across the street from the building. I also enjoy using the Quincy Park which is a couple minutes walk away to play soccer and basketball in the summer.
I've personally enjoyed living by myself because it helps me to concentrate on my readings. My apartment is not that spacious but it is a good size for one person. I have a nice view of the Capital Building and a balcony that I use a lot in the warmer weather. I don't get that lonely either because a lot my law school friends live within about a 3 block radius from Quincy. Again it's on the steeper end of price, but I think the tradeoff at least for me from not having to accommodate a roommate is worth the price.
The management at Quincy is really great as well. The front desk is on call 24/7 and they email you when your packages arrive and you can go down for pickup. I've also filed one or two maintenance requests and they always have had someone respond in a timely manner.
I keep a car here and parking is about $75 extra per month. The garage is pretty tight but I think most apartment complexes in the area will be the same way. If you want to get into DC, the Virginia Square Metro is only a 5 minute walk away.
Virginia Square Plaza Review
Va. Sq. Plaza—Relatively pleased
The apartments themselves are a touch older but very spacious—for me that made up for any problems with older cabinetry. Lots of windows and natural light as well. Parking is a bit annoying, but par for this area. I LOVE the location. It’s basically across the street from the school. There are two convenience stores within a block, the metro is literally across the street, and the Giant is a six minute walk away.
Having said that, while the office and administration of the building is pleasant, they are also annoyingly particular. There are often nasty gram emails and papers taped to the elevators. Minor, but annoying. Overall I am relatively pleased, given that it’s a large corporation.
