Med Student Recommended!
Currently a medical student and so far really enjoying my experience here.
FYI. This complex is now called Avana on Broad.
-lots of floor space/sunlight. I love that I have lots of direct sunlight
- big balcony. The balcony has a screen door so I usually leave it open and let fresh air come in without worries about bugs
- affordable (compared to other apartments near the med school), especially if living alone
- most floor plans are partially renovated so only wood and no carpet
- community is pretty quiet and safe
- occasionally there are bugs. But also keep in mind, I've talked to many other students and even those living at 'luxury' apartments have bugs. Comes with living in North Carolina
- about an 8 min drive to med school parking deck. not bad but won't be in the middle of the action. only 10 min away from downtown
- gates are sometimes left open. can be annoying. but still feel relatively safe
Overall, would recommend my apartment complex. Everyone who has come over are impressed on the space/lighting/renovations!
Great just pricey
I really like this place - people are sweet and it feels safe. The only gripe I have is that they have significantly increased prices (like all other places have) in the past year. It’s still the cheapest I could find with the safety and space given with being relatively close to campus.
Luxury apartments, very affordable
The management is fantastic, the facilities are new (and they keep renovating), and it is family-friendly. It is only a 10-minute drive from the Duke medical campus and I feel like the distance is worth the upgrade in the quality of living and affordability.
Proximity to everything in Durham
Discovery on Broad is a quiet neighborhood that is about 5-6 minutes from 9th street and 10 minutes from everything else in Durham, including Fuqua, downtown, etc. It is walking distance from a Costco, which is an amazing wholesale store. Only downside is that there is not a social/nightlife within walking distance; you will have to travel to 9th street or another nearby area.
It's not perfect or fancy by any means but it gets the job done. I get a lot of space for a very good price. I don't use the amenities of the property a ton with the exception of the gym (pre-Covid). The apartments are fairly updated, clean, and simple. I moved from NYC so having a large space with appliances was refreshing. My drive to campus is 8-10 minutes (you will need a car). I'm only about 2.5 miles from 9th street, 3-5 minute drive. Honestly, its the best kept secret. Most of my friends are amazed when they see my place and hear how much I pay. Also, there is a grocery store, Costco, and a few other stores within walking distance.
The biggest downsides are simple things like the front gate (almost always broken), and they don't really take great care of the pool or gym but again I rarely use them. For the two years I am in Durham, this place is PERFECT!
Retreat at RTP
Spacious apartments with excellent amenities at a competitive price in the Durham/Triangle area. Located in South Durham (closer to airport), it is a 12-14 minute drive mostly on the highway to the parking garage on campus. Lots of green space and privacy as well as sidewalks/trails, but no restaurants/grocery stores/bars in walking distance.
great apartment, slightly removed from downtown
I love living in this apartment complex. My apartment is very spacious and has a great open-concept kitchen and living area, with lots of windows and natural light. It's located slightly removed from downtown/midtown Nashville, but is still just 10 minutes driving distance from Vanderbilt, and very easy to get anywhere else in Nashville. Because it's away from downtown/midtown, it's a little bit quieter, and less expensive than an apartment of the same size and quality that you would find closer to downtown. Neighbors in the complex are very respectful and the property feels very safe, and is secured within gates with key-fob access to the buildings. Maintenance and management have always been very responsive and I haven't had any major issues in the year and a half that I've lived here. I think the only downside to this apartment complex is that there aren't many things around that are walkable, and it is across town from Vanderbilt, so having a car is necessary, but parking is free/included in rent. This complex is also very pet friendly, and has a small dog park area near the back of the parking lot. The management also frequently holds resident events (all of which have been virtual or socially distanced since March) such as paint & sip nights, local beer tastings, food trucks, door decorating contests, and furry friend events at the dog park. I highly recommend this apartment complex!
Great on a budget
Rent is very cheap for the Durham area. The apartment complex is high quality with lots of space too. Down side is it is a 14 minute drive to the parking garage. But you are close to Southpoint mall and not far from Chapel Hill.
I am currently a P4 and have lived at One Metrocenter since starting pharmacy school. I live in the largest one bedroom here, and it’s nice because I have an extra room that I utilize as a study. Management and the maintenance staff are so friendly and are always so helpful. I’m about a 10 minute drive from campus, cutting through the gulch in the morning to get to class made it an easy commute. I also like being close to the interstate so it’s easy to get around all over the city. It’s really nice being close to Germantown so you have lots of restaurant options to pick from when you want to go out with friends. There is also a Starbucks, and a new Dunkin’ and Chipotle basically right next door which make living here even better.
Great price and location
Altera North Pointe has nice apartments, is really quiet, has lots of parking, and has been an all around great experience.
Bristol Village at Charter Colony
Your money really goes a long way here. I have a brand new very spacious apartment with 3 parking spots, free gym, and a pool. The apartment complex is quiet and in a nice area close to public libraries, the supermarket, and highways.
The only reason why I gave it 8 is because the apartment complex is 25 minutes from campus.
Comfortable apartment near many popular spots
Altera North Pointe is a great apartment community because it is very quiet and not too busy. It is only a 10-15 minute drive to Fuqua and is near Costco, Kroger, Ross, Bed Bath & Beyond, and other shopping areas. 9th Street is a 5 minute drive and it is easy and quick to get to Fuqua, the Heights on LaSalle, and downtown Durham. The apartments are spacious and comfortable. The community is gated plus they have pools, tennis courts, and a fitness center. It is one of the best deals I found for a one bedroom and utility costs are less than $75 for internet, electricity, and water/sewer.
Nice area but rude landlords beware!
I have a service animal and regularly they would attempt to Bill me for a pet fee each month. Even though you cannot charge for the dog since he is my service animal. At one point because of him living with me they began claiming I would be evicted if I do not pay for him. Luckily after a lawyer was involved they allowed me to leave my lease free and clear.
The management at this apartment complex is outstanding. Any time that I need something done in my apartment they get to it immediately. However, I have experience two floods and a broken fan - not fun. Appliances are way out of date and the amenities are not great for the price - however, it is a safe area and the apartments are huge.
Oak Lawn Gem
Great price, awesome location, and free parking! Love the complex. Management is very friendly and prompt with responses. Close to lots of bars, restaurants, etc. Near medical district and cost is well below other complexes in the area. I highly recommend!
