- Amenities were generally excellent.
What could be better
- Appliances and utilities were constantly breaking down.
- Management was slow to respond to complaints.

Love the apartment and the neighborhood
Moved into this place a while back with my roommate and it's been awesome. We wactually both wish it could be just a little bit bigger (900 square feet) but it's great for the value we are getting. We do share a bathroom, but we are both pretty happy with the arrangement. Great apartment, hardwood, granite countertops, but not much to do nearby!!!
Super close to L&C campus. Great parks nearby and gives you access to Mountain Park rec center!!
If only management were as good as the amenities...
Management is awful. Sometimes took weeks to get back to us or fix things in our apartment e.g. leaking ceiling.
The HOA membership was fantastic, including pools, large gym, steam/sauna, classes, etc. Tanning bed and 24 hour gym at the apartment complex, HOA across the street.
Decent apartments with granite counter tops, balconies, and wood fireplace. Roomie and I lived here for two years, but plan to move out at end of lease.
1L's Don't Move Here
It looks pretty and it's close to the law school. That's about it. The insulation is terrible, you can hear every conversation outside, and the rent/maintenance/utilities are SO EXPENSIVE.
Pro's: Lots of floor plans, free Rec Center membership, quick drive to school, safe area, good for adjusting to portland
Con: Far away from any place cool in portland, SUPER EXPENSIVE, always have maintenance issues, super noisy
Wouldn't move into One Jefferson
I'm a married student with an infant child. I would strongly advise against moving into One Jefferson Apartments. Everything in these apartments are falling apart, heating is either boiling or frigid, and there is no central air. Appliances are constantly breaking, and maintenance is never available. If anything is broken, we had to fix it ourselves, or just get used to it.
This would be fine if they weren't charging tenants absolute top dollar. My wife and I actually moved units because our first was so poor, and the second unit was just as bad.
Great place to live
Love veranda estates! So nice and great management. The flooring really does look like hardwood. The kitchen has so much storage space. And it's wonderful to have a full laundry room. I wish it had a dog park. The pool is nice. They're getting new furniture this year.
