Overpriced ghost town. Seems like most of the units are still vacant, and that people are moving out soon after move in. Apartments are small and nothing special, yet the rent prices are very high. Amenities are great, but in reality, no one uses them enough to make it worth the price.
Great place to live
I love living here. The management is great and very responsive. The tenants are all relatively young and mostly either students or working professionals. It is a very safe environment which is a huge plus. If I had to choose again I would rent again from here
New, Central, Upscale Apartment
Griffin is a one-year old apartment in a very old building. While it maintains some of its historic properties on the outside and the beautiful original railing inside, the apartment is completely renovated into a modern look and layout. It has great appliances along with high ceilings and large windows. Layouts are somewhat challenging, you definitely have to pay up to get the most roomy/easy layout to work with.
But the buildings central location, safety and amazing amenities won me over. If you are someone who would take advantage of these features: pretty well upgraded gym with a rowing machine and separate yoga/stretch/barre room. Rooftop offers amazing views of Broad Street and City Hall, which is a fun place for grilling, watching TV (indoors or outdoors), they have a ton of games. The building also hosts a decent number of social events which has allowed me to get to know some of my neighbors pretty well and even actually make some friends.
Overall, my experience at The Triangle has been quite satisfactory. While the unit is a little bit older than some of the brand new apartments on the East side of Austin or Downtown, you can't beat the value from a cost and safety perspective.
Great place to live, but no longer available to grad students.
This apartment is perfect for my needs and I was attracted to it since it was advertised as a more upscale place to stay which keeps undergrads away. Most people who live here are professionals and graduate students. However Duke University just bought this complex to replace some of their undergrad dorms so this will no longer be a living option for future grad students.
Comfortable Chapel Hill living
Comfortable and updated apartment units, great location, and excellent amenities (gym, pool, grills)
Great Place to Leave Off-Campus
Better and much cheaper than Heights and Belmont!
We have an excellent pool and we can enjoy BBQ.
Overall great place to live in first year
Overall, I love living here. I'm a second-year and have lived here for 2 years. Downsides: not walkable to Franklin street, management can be disorganized. Upside: Great for dogs, easy access to I40, lots of MBA students live here, great amenities.
Springs of Chapel Hill
It's a more spacious version of a standard apartment, fairly new. It meets my needs - I have a spacious bedroom and closet, and my own bathroom. The kitchen is large and the appliances are in good condition. It's also nice for pets - they have two dog parks.
Good Community, very good management team
Very well-run community. It's well-maintained and the the staff is very responsive.
Great Apartment, Some Issues
The apartment itself is great, newly renovated with two separate bathrooms. We have a garage which is also very helpful. The rent is a bit high, but the amenities are very nice. Trash pickup is early morning and it will wake you up at 5:30am.
It's quieter/more remote from main campus than living by Franklin, but I have really enjoyed Alta. It is fairly expensive though, and parking can get crowded. I recommend it overall.
Clean, friendly apartment complex
This apartment is great, but it is expensive, and they have raised rent considerably. The deluxe studio is the perfect size for someone living alone - it is basically a small one bedroom, rather than a typical "studio." The actual studio is VERY small, more like a college dorm. The apartments are clean, though, and well maintained. The convenience in its proximity to the law campus is what makes me stay here. You also get free access to a fairly nice gym up the road, which also has an indoor pool and workout classes.
Excellent property, but pricey
State of the art facilities include newly remodeled pool, gym, climbing wall, and locker room. The property is extremely nice. This large development is extremely nice with underground garage and multiple fountains throughout the property.
Location is also excellent for those who want to be in Westwood; close to all the local restaurants and walking distance to campus. I hardly ever use my car.
The downside is that it is definitely very pricey -- even for a couple splitting a one bedroom. You pay a hefty premium for the new facilities, full time on-site management, and excellent location.
