Recent Gables Residential reviews
We live in a two-bedroom unit with a loft so it is very spacious. We also have a fireplace, although we have not used in. The location is within walking distance to downtown so it is a very convenient and fun location. A lot of other classmates live in the building or nearby which is useful for group projects, commuting, hanging out, etc.
Time at Park Plaza has been great. The location is fantastic near the river, and the park across the street is great for pets. Building can be a little secluded as far as parts of downtown goes, but it is accessible - you have to walk a tad further and around the train tracks. Rent is expensive, but about on par with other complexes.
Nice space without high end frills, amenities include a small gym and pool for residents. The unit has everything we need, including in-unit laundry, parking for our 2 cars, and excellent sound insulation. Location can't be beat as it's next to Central Market, the 803 bus, and a park for our dog to walk in.
Uptown trail gets the job done but isn't awesome.
Good True One Bedroom Apartment
This apartment is great for a true one bedroom on a budget. It has new appliances and parking. Biggest upside is its great location! A few downsides are the amenities are average but there is a pool and a gym that I frequently use. It is also a smaller apartment so difficult to host.
Great Apartment, near campus and easy access to SMU. Managers are easy to work with and living there is easy. Further from other students and off campus events than I would like.
Comfortable living with convenient location
Pros: Units are quite large, free parking, conveniently located a block from shuttle stop, close to Publix and restaurants, may receive a giftcard during move-in special, proactive about pest control spraying common areas every week
Cons: Pool and gym are lacking, package room still in early stages so may have to follow-up on packages, office takes a while to disburse move-in reward
Amazing location bad management
Emory Point is in an amazing location with great amenities. But there is very little support from the management once you're on the lease.
Gables Montclair has been a generally good experience. My only issue was problems getting maintenance in to do work. After speaking to the property manager, however, it was done the next day. I never hear my neighbors and there are a good mix of students, professors, and families. Would recommend, especially the Brice floor plan, which give you a whole separate office/ guest bedroom.
No bus route
No emory shuttle but good location if you have a car.
close to campus
The apartment is nothing special to write about but its proximity to campus is the BEST
Good for the price
For a studio in Mt. Vernon, it's a steal. However, the building is not as new as others in the area. It's a good trade off for price, since the building is new enough and in a great location.
Gables Rock Springs Review
Good Place to Live
New management starting off strong.
Ever since new management came in, things have been good here (about a year, so consistency yet to be seen). The apartments are incredibly nice. There is a gym. There is free coffee downstairs but it's not very good (and under old management the machine could get pretty dirty-looking). It is a pet-friendly residence, but people are not great at picking up after their pets. Once in a long while you will even see a dog turd inside the halls. Maintenance is responsive, though our unit has a minor recurring issue that they don't seem to be able to permanently fix. Near executive park shuttle and somewhat near a couple city buses, if you're willing to walk next to a semi-busy street with no sidewalk (you can walk on the grass and leaves). Beware extremely small windows in some bedrooms (and so high up you will never see anything but sky when sitting down)--I would recommend explicitly asking about these in reference to any unit as they can change within floor plans.
Expensive, but safe and good apartments
It's definitely one of the most expensive options close to Emory. But I think it is worth it for the stability and safety that you get here. Also, the floor plans and apartments in general are solid with space and such.
