Nice place in Carrboro.
Helpful staff, clean apartments. This year they are renewing all the appliances.
We like it
We like our apartment a lot. It's nothing fancy, but it has enough amenities and is significantly cheaper than what many of my classmates are paying at other locations. We enjoy the pool and having a lot of trees around us. After undergoing a ownership switch, the new ownership is upgrading the counters and appliances in many of the units. The location of the complex is great as it's very proximal to Carrboro.
great size for the unit and balcony
near MARTA transit
easy parking garage access to/from unit
Only problem is that if something is broken in a shared part of the complex, it takes a while to get it fixed (i.e. electric grill)
I have lived at the Bridges at Chapel Hill and I have really enjoyed it. The apartment complex is right on a bus line that comes very frequently, so it is easy to get to and from the UNC Campus. The office staff is always very helpful and they are very quick to fix anything that may be broken in the apartment. We also get a free O2 Fitness membership.
Safe and Quiet
Located in Brookhaven, a very clean and safe complex. About 1yr old with nice amenities.
Nice building, horrible management
Brand new complex. Apartments are nice, a management leaves a lot to be desired. There have been break-ins on the property, though we generally feel safe. Typical problems exist that come with apartment living- some residents are very respectful, others are not. We will not extend our lease, instead opting for month to month.
The Harlowe is a very legitimate complex with respect to value and location. Right outside of DC and near pentagon city, etc, it is a good location and the pricing is relatively appropriate. Decent management, friendly environment. They are doing upgrades and the building seems to be headed into a terrific direction.
Review of The Harlowe
The experience has been overall very good. The location is not in walking distance to the metro, but it allows convenient proximity to a direct bus route that takes riders straight to the metro in the morning. They have recently updated the cosmetics of the building, i.e. painted the outside, new interior, updated fitness room, which has been very nice. There are many different kinds of residents who live there, so I find it nice that there is a diverse group of tenants, from single people to small families to couples, old and young. Overall good vibes.
Great for pet owners!
I love living here, the rent is affordable and the amenities are great (2 pools, business center, gym). It's also a perfect place for dogs as nearly everyone owns a dog here and we often have a social hour.
There are numerous social events put on also, we just watched the Super Bowl. Parking is usually good, you can pay more for a reserved spot - we don't.
Great location - a little pricy
We really enjoy our apartment - it is at a great location close to uptown, it is quiet even though it is along the highway, and it is safe. Our main complaints are the timeliness of maintenance as well as the ever increasing rent costs. If they could get this under control and be willing to negotiate especially when residents have been there for some time, it would be so much better.
Love it here
I really love the apartment; it's spacious and it's nicely updated with nice appliance and most importantly, there is a washer, a dryer, and a dishwasher. The neighbors are sometimes a little annoying because they let their small children run wild in the hallway, but they are also in the diplomatic corps of another country, so that may be normal where they live. I like the secured entry points, and I like the covered parking. There are minor annoyances, like the fact that there are a lot of children living in the complex and they like to play in the business center or in the gym, but that's not the fault of the apartment complex. I like the value of the apartment: very spacious with the amenities I needed. I had to go a little further out of town to find everything I wanted within my budget, but the commute is worth it. I would recommend this apartment complex to anyone looking for a place to live.
Afraid the rent might go up after renovation
So far I found this apart. to be the best value around the area. With the recent renovation everything outside is perfect too. I am just afraid this apartm. may become more popular, thereby raising the rent like other apartments. I love the way it is right now.
Quiet and good apartment
The apartment is fairly old building but recently the management had done a renovation and repainted the apartement it is nice and neat. Although there is no subway station near by it is right off the highway. If you have a car than it would be a great choice.
Great place in Alexandria
The Alexander is a great place to live if you want to be near DC without having to be stuck in all the hustle and bustle of the city. There is a free shuttle service that takes residents to the Pentagon City metro during working hours making it easy to get around without a car. If you do have a car theres ample spaces to park underground. The amenities are great, management is friendly, and its a very good place if you have a dog
I moved to Berks two years ago for school. It's an okay apartment with great location. Amenities are kind of old, but overall, if you are not looking for fancy stuff, Berks will meet your needs. There are some good restaurants nearby, all within walking distance.
