Gables Park Plaza Review
Great place to live downtown
Gables Rupeblic Square is a great place to live downtown
The management comapany is excellent. The amenities are very well taken care of and is in a great downtown location close to everything.
Good but expensive
Modern amenities with beautiful balcony. Very responsive staff with concierge at the front desk and handyman on site. Very expensive for a small unit.
Well priced and great location
Though my particular unit does not have all of the newest appliances, it comes with so much space that we don't even know what to do with. The location is also great. I can simply walk downstairs to Central Market if I need to pick up quick groceries or a meal. There are also nearby neighborhoods where I can jog comfortably. It's a short drive to plenty of restaurants and just about anything else that I need. The commute to UH is only about 15 minutes on average and rarely goes past 25 minutes outside of the worst of rush hour. For the price we're paying, this is a great set up.
Nice Apartments and Amenities in a great area
Everything about the apartment is great. It is usually pretty quiet. The management could be better, but as is the case with most apartments.
The apartment is acceptable to live in. The interior is refurbished in 2017 but the apartment itself is old. The current management is not doing a good job with maintainence but is very responsive.
Gables Montclair Review
I love living here! The swimming pool is a wonderful retreat that can be enjoyed almost year round.
Review of Emory Point
Overall, I have had a decent experience renting. I live in a partially furnished place so it was worth the extra cost to not have to buy furniture during the pandemic (when all the prices were super high). However, my building is pretty loud because of how many college students live there. Also, I don't have a car but I know parking is a significant cost for other residents.
Gables Montclair Review
Convenient and spacious.
Grad Student Haven
Quieter neighborhood with a mix of students, families, and even professors. Parties won't keep you up all night. Just across the street from lots of restaurants and a grocery store. MARTA and Emory shuttles a 5 minute walk away. I love my floorplan as it is a 1 bedroom + a separate office, which is perfect for having guests or working from home. High ceilings, nice finishes. Maintenance responds quickly. It would be unaffordable as a student if I did not live with my partner. The noise can be a bit loud from the street if you are facing Clairmont—I definitely could not "relax" on my balcony and mostly used it to store bikes. Not gated, but very safe—never felt afraid taking my dog out alone in the middle of the night or was worried about things left in my car.
I have had generally positive experiences here with my husband and our dog. Management has been attentive and they agreed to freeze our rent during COVID prior to it being a requirement by law. Have been very responsive to repair requests, etc.
5 Mockingbird Review
Great location for the price
Overpriced but good for students without cars
Rent does not include a mandatory $25/mo trash valet fee. The trash valet can be convenient, but they don't come on weekends or holidays and neighbors frequently leave their trash cans in the shared hallways all day. I really only moved here for its proximity to Mockingbird Station, which is a big plus. There's also a bunch of restaurants and bars as well as a nice Angelika movie theater within walking distance, although the same can be said about most apartments near Greenville/SMU Blvd.
Good location, not greatest
Pros: Units are updated with white kitchen cabinets, white quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances. Less expensive than other apartments with similar interior finishes, and more variety/larger floor plans than other apartments. Great location: <1 mile to the law school, next door to Kroger and Mockingbird Station shops.
Cons: Not the most secure or cleanest building. Do not recommend living on the first floor due to security and bug concerns, but I have lived on the third floor for all three years of law school and personally have not had any issues. Make sure car is locked at all times and no personal belongings in sight.
