Good for students
For the price you pay, Chelsea Commons isn't a bad place to live. The units themselves are pretty basic, and it's cheaper than most of the other area apartments. However, I wouldn't live there again now that I'm out of undergrad -- there are better options in the area.
Safe building with lots of renters with small kids
This building has elevators, laundry rooms and a courtyard for the kids, lots of young families renting here. Building super is very responsive. Management board is lousy. Overall a very safe and convenient neighborhood with virtually every type of fast food, grocery store and bus stop within walking distance. No dogs allowed here, which sucks. No gym.
Great Price, Great Apartment
Great apartment for the price. Plenty of light, big windows, lots of public space and a great kitchen. Large walk-in closet for my wife, two sinks in the bathroom, big mirror. Same-floor parking for convenience, and a fitness center right on our floor with all the workout gear I need-- cardio, weight training. Plus a roofdeck pool. The management has been very helpful and friendly. The neighborhood isn't great, but it's near everything you need and local to downtown/Midtown.
Great complex for dog owners! There's a fenced-in dog park on premise. The apartments are all loft-esque with either hardwood or concrete floors and tall ceilings. Granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. There have been lots of care break-ins in the front visitors lot, but none in the residence parking.
I love my apartment. I managed to snag a great deal, and it's well worth it. I love the private balcony and windows. Good kitchen space, black and aluminum fixtures. It's got lots of space for socializing and parties, and I haven't had any problems with noise. Private entrance, gated garage, same-level parking. A regular fitness center plus a roofdeck saline pool and group fitness area. Great public space down by the leasing office for BIG group dinners, parties, etc. Literally down the street from Poor Calvin's. Great apartment.
Cozy New Home
We moved in a few months ago and have really enjoyed it! There are two courtyards (perfect for taking the dog out), a fitness center right on our floor, and gated parking (safe) at the same level as your apartment (convenient). We're also literally across the street (2 minute walk!) from a great dog daycare and boarding facility! Plus, we're right up the street from a Publix and Walgreens.
The apartment itself is cozy and feels like home. Wide open public area (kitchen-dining-living) great for hosting friends. We haven't had any problems with noise (either with neighbors or with insulation/sound protection). My husband loves to cook and the kitchen is great. I adore our huge walk-in closet, our double sinks in the bathroom, and the big bathtub. We also have a small storage unit that's super convenient (just around the corner on our floor), but we have SO much space in our apartment, too! We have three big windows that let in lots of light. The apartment management has been so friendly and very helpful.
Much love for a modern and affordable apartment in West Midtown.
I've been a resident since August of 2014 and my experience has been nothing short of positive. I thoroughly researched apartments in West Midtown before I moved in and again before I wrote this review and none of them come close to what CL offers, especially in terms of quality, location and price. The entire complex is brand new (construction finished in 2015) and having lived in older apartments in the past it's refreshing to finally live in a clean new unit. Plus, the management staff and local community consists of some of the best people you could ever meet. Now no apartment complex is perfect, but as an experienced renter Collier Lofts has been the best property I've had the pleasure of living at.
I am, for the most part, happy with this complex. It is older but I like the hardwood floors. The only thing I am not happy with is the fact that every time my upstairs neighbor plays music it sounds like a dance party in my apartment. I, also, wish I did not hear him walk around so much. Parking is good though. I have not heard of any break ins or anything.
