Great spot for GBS Students
I really like everything about the apartment complex. Location is super convenient to Emory, restaurants and night life. It is in a great neighborhood so it doesn't feel so much like apartment living. Complex has great amenities such as pool and sufficient parking. Relatively safe. My only complaint is you can sometimes hear your neighbors but that is to be expected.
Great so far - haven't had any complaints so far. Management has been great and the location is excellent. Lots of other Emory grad students as well!
Quiet apartment tucked behind nice neighborhood
In the newer phase of Gables Rock Springs, I feel safely secluded behind a really nice neighborhood of townhouses and houses. Nicely wooded area behind. The neighborhood is great for walking, especially for dogs. 2 miles from the business school. Easy drive to Virginia Highlands, Midtown, Ponce, etc. Need a car for commute to class. New appliances and Washer/dryer included. Parking open or gated garage. Not a bargain, but rent competitive with the area and amenities provided.
Walking distance to campus
Great location if you want a quick commute to school. New building with great amenities. Mix of some (well-behaved) undergrads, grad students, young professionals, and families. Plus the bagels at General Muir are a treat.
A little expensive, but a great apartment
These apartments are a little on the expensive side, but the facilities, safety, proximity to restaurants, and proximity to school are exceptional. The oldest units were first rented out in 2014, the so interior design feels contemporary.
Good Location, Great Staff
The staff at Gables Midtown are very helpful and responsive and made my move that much easier. The apartment complex is located in between Midtown and Emory, which make it ideal for students and young professionals.
Gables Rick Springs Phase 2 and Lofts
My fiancé and I rented two units at Gables Rock Springs- a loft for me and a Phase two 1b1b for her. My loft was over 850sqft and her unit was 770sqft at $1280. The complex has 2 luxury pools and fitness centers as well as a car wash center and business center. Less than 5 minute drive to and from campus to the South. Great value, location, maintenance, management, amenities, and more. My loft came with a sky light and attic so I had plenty of sunshine and storage and pets were allowed.
Great apartments and excellent/responive management team
Gables Sheridan is a great apartment to live in. I've lived here for close to 2 years and don't have much to complain about. There's ample parking in the outside parking lot and in the parking garage. There's a wonderful pool and great gym (open 24 hours a day). And although I don't use it much there's also a computer room, which has a television set and free coffee. The management team is very responsive to service requests and Gables is constantly updating the property. They recently repainted the entire complex (only the hallways, not actual apartments), completely renovated the leasing office and the computer room, and added brand new patio chairs/tables to the outside pool area. In addition, it's very close to many food options and grocery stores like Pulix, Kroger, Fresh Market, and Target. I highly recommend this apartment and have to add the year-over-year increase in rent I got last year was only a 3% increase.
Friendly community great for dogs
My husband and I have lived at Gables Rock Springs for about 3 years. We recently re-signed for next year. We really like it because it is centrally located, but tucked on a private road so it feels like a nice, safe neighborhood. We have a dog and it has been a great location for that. There are a lot of other dog owners in the building and it creates and nice, friendly community. There is a really nice wooded park with a creek a short walk from the apartments that I take my dog to every day and let him run around. It is really fun and convenient. The staff at gables are always very friendly and quick to address things.
Great location, nice apartment, occasionally annoying neighbors
Chose this apt for the location so that I can walk/bike to Emory. Also, it's closer to the Va Highlands nightlife than some of the other campus area options. Have been very happy with the location.
It's not gated, which I like because I don't have to let visitors in and out. I've never not felt secure, since we're in the middle of a nice neighborhood, but there has been one car broken into since I've been here so if you're nervous about security go for a gated place.
The apartment itself is nice and spacious. Floorplan is nice, kitchen is nice, bed/bath/closet are spacious.
Pool are is nice, but a little small. I wouldn't mind a larger area. The gym looks decent but I never really use it so I can't really say.
Management has been nice enough, I generally only talk to them when I need something or to pick up a package and they're always responsive and helpful. My only real complaint is that they raised rent for the upcoming lease renewal a lot more than expected. A little over 10% when I was expecting 5-7%. Going to renew anyway because I like it here and moving is annoying, but probably not renew next year once school is done.
Great option near campus
Emory Point is a great choice for living alone, close to campus. I can walk to class every day, and feel very safe and comfortable in my apartment. The leasing office and maintenance staff are incredibly helpful, friendly, and responsive. The pool and gym are beautiful and rarely crowded. It is definitely not the most economic choice available, but for someone new to the city and looking for the easiest possible transition to school, it was worth every cent. The only minor annoyance is that there are undergrads living in the building and they can be a bit loud, but I haven't had any serious issues with that. Tip: try to sign a lease early in the summer or even spring to great rent discounts/deals!
Can't beat the convenience
Cannot beat the convenience factor of Emory Point. It's walking distance to school (about a mile), and so many great stores within the complex (nail salon, hair salon, clothing boutiques, CVS, restaurants/bars, food shopping, gym, barre and orange theory). I can literally go weeks without driving my car! The amenities and apartments are both very nice.
My only complaint would be noise. There are A LOT of undergrads that live here and often times you hear them sprinting down the hallways at 1 in the morning. Also, the windows are not well insulated. I live on the Clifton Rd side and there is a firehouse across the street, so I hear fire engines leaving the station on a daily basis. Due to the poor insulation, even the sound of trucks and buses on Clifton Rd can be loud when you're trying to fall asleep at night.
Great Accommodations; Disingenuous Management
The apartment, community, shops, pool and gym are incredible. The distance to Emory is also perfect. Maintenance, security and other services are great.
Downside: Management will screw you over the first chance they get. We had a horrendous experience with them, both moving in and moving out. The price is more premium than other options and they will try to get even more out of you every chance they get. Also, they tell you that professors and CDC professionals live there. This is disingenuous. You are surrounded by overprivileged, techno bumping undergrads.
The Phoenix is a very popular building for SMU students, but there is a surprising number of families and ethnic people here. I wouldn't recommend it if you aren't an SMU student just because it gets loud and people have parties and stuff. This one time, I was walking to a friend's on a different floor, I walked into the wrong apartment, but they invited me to hang out there for a while anyway. People here are either super friendly, or are super weird and I feel like they're going to murder me. It's sketchy, but everyone seems to be fine with it because it's close to SMU. Also there's a Kroger across the street so that's good.
Amazing location, beautful building, right in the heart of uptown dallas!
mckinney ave is seriously one of the most high end buildings to live in in uptown. it is top of the line finishes and appliances and the amenities are outstanding. you have a pool, gym, yoga room, media center, dog park on the roof, rooftop grilling area, and a pool table area. you do pay a big price but it is worth it. Oh and did i mention a 24 hour concierge service!
