Great place to live with many amenities and an excellent walkable community!
Great for older students or pet owners
This is a very nice, newer build. There are many different floor plans to choose from, and nice amenities, from secured parking to a gym to a rooftop space. This building is pretty expensive, but they offer MFTE units, a program which is available to university students, decreasing the cost by several hundred dollars per month. The management and maintenance is very responsive, and they throw multiple events for residents throughout the year. There are several bus lines right outside the building which run right to campus or to the light rail. The building is extremely pet friendly, and has an outdoor dog run on the 2nd floor. My primary complaints about this building are that I get limited sunlight during the day, and that I have an unsavory neighbor or two (although you might get that anywhere). Overall, if you are an older student who would like to be a bit further from the chaos of campus, or if you have a dog, this is a great building.
Nice Interior Apartment, Short Commute
Just like every apartment in LA, there are good and bad things. The apartment itself is nice. Living downtown has its own issues (besides the high rent) that don't really apply to the apartment itself. It's only about a 15 minute commute to school which is nice but there aren't many things you would want for your life outside of school in this location. Things like Targets and grocery stores are few and far between. The management of the building is friendly but not overly helpful. The service staff is very quick on work orders if there's a problem in your apartment.
Knox is fantastic with a 3-4min drive or 25min walk to SMU. Awesome restaurants. Everyone has a dog. Warning on the elevators = they are awful and seem to always have an issue.
Great place to live
Knox Heights is clean, really safe, and in a great location—I’m right down the street from the Katy Trail and a 5 minute drive to the law school.
It’s a nice apartment
Quiet and established community located in driving distance to everything you would need.
They are coming back from TERRIBLE management. They are a lot more responsive and are continually improving their amenities. They are literally on the RAIL for any sort of commute and a walk away from great restaurants, bars, and a few gyms. The gym gets the job done. You have covered/secure parking. The lounge gives you a great view of downtown and the pool is a nice area for small get togethers. You are in the middle of the city and won't experience traffic. You will be able to get anywhere easily from this place! Love Midtown!
Best thing about it is location. 5 min south of campus.
The rent is pricey but about the lowest you’ll do when it comes to mid rise apartments in the Knox-Henderson and Uptown area. Also when you factor in move-in specials it comes to like $1850/month or so on average for the first year.
Green Lake Village Review
Close access to 45 bus, Green Lake is awesome, property is new
Not the Best
The building itself is nice but completely overpriced. Management will lose your packages. Would not recommend.
Great for a Two Income Couple
My wife and I both work while I am going to school. This place has been great for us. While it may be on the more expensive side, since we both work in Sandy we save a bunch on Gas and other expenses. I would highly recommend to any couple.
Really great apartment in a great neighborhood
I’ve been living here for two years and love it. It’s a bit on the nicer, more expensive end of apartments close to SMU. The area is safe and you can walk to the Katy Trail, Starbucks, the Apple Store and tons of other great shops and restaurants. The management is kind of strange is the only low.
3800 Main offers some of the best amenities and finishes for the lowest price in Midtown. They have a pool, two gyms, two clubhouses, grills, and computer rooms. Management is responsive and reasonable.
The apartment itself is large and well laid out. Each floor of the building shares a free washing machine and dryer. HOWEVER the apartment manager who lives in the apartment building is terrible. She has four animals, two of which are dogs, even though the building doesn't allow residents to have dogs. None of the animals are trained and they bark, howl, slam against the door, and fight at all hours. They've broken down her back door twice, and have caused damages. Their feces are left in the shared backyard of the building for days and weeks on end and have caused other residents' and neighbors' animals to get sick. The police have been called before because of blood smeared on her windows, which ended up being from the dogs fighting each other. All such noise and safety complains fall on deaf ears, as they are sent to her. The management company refuses to talk to any residents, and directs all contact back to her.
If she were to leave, the apartment would be large and a great deal for the price. However as - is, it is loud, scary, and potentially dangerous for us as residents and our pets.
