Nice space, management is not very responsive

5 management rating Reviewed by on

So far my experience at the Lofts has been nice and safe. I do believe the management is a bit slow to respond to requests and can sometimes be a bit unhelpful. They are pretty responsive to urgent issues, though.

Lofts at Lakeview

7 management rating Reviewed by on

Overall a good experience and stay.

Generally a clean environment but I had a small garden bug infestation in my apartment near the terrace sliding door due to the summer weather.

Maintenance personnel respond relatively quick and all requests are done through an app. My oven wasn’t working and they came and replaced it with a new one within 3 days.

Amenities are great, outdoor pool, gym, good lounge.

Very expensive relative to other apartments as I am paying $100 per month on top of rent for internet and energy utilities.

Lofts Review

7 management rating Reviewed by on

I love living at Lofts. It's super close to the med school and lots of food options, my apartment is great, and I use the gym consistently. Also, lots of other med students live in Lofts/Flats/Trinity, so it's nice to be so close to a lot of people. The one downside (besides being expensive) is that maintenance doesn't respond to work requests very quickly, but I think that happens at basically every apartment complex, and all of my requests have been resolved within ~10 days.

Decent value for the size of our apartment, which is enormous (1,528 sq. ft). Lots of natural light and a big, spacious common area with a nice little kitchen. More closet space than you know what to do with. Quick response to maintenance requests, including any pest issues that come up. Very close to Duke's medical campus (~16 min walk to medical school or hospital), 3 min drive to closest supermarket, and multiple casual restaurants within a 5 min walk. Gym is on the small side but not usually crowded and easy to use. Not as fancy as Trinity Commons but better value in my opinion - the only reason I'd pick Trinity over Lofts is improved security, security system at Lofts feels a little older and many interior doors (other than personal door to your apartment) do not require a key.

Lofts is great if you want to be close to the hospital. It is a little cheaper than the other apartments near the hospital for more space. The apartments are slightly less nice than other apartments (like trinity) but you get more out of your money. The gym is very nice and there is always parking. There is no noise from next door neighbors but you can hear the footsteps of upstairs neighbors.

Good but maybe look elsewhere

I'm generally happy with the Lofts. The apartment is spacious and gets a lot of sun; the building is a fairly short walk from campus, which is great since I don't own a car; and there are plenty of good dining options nearby. But I've learned that you can enjoy the same amenities (and then some) in other parts of the city for a fraction of the rent. Unless distance from campus is a key concern of yours, I recommend saving your money.

Great but too expensive

I’ve lived here for 3 months and haven’t had any issues. The area is very safe and there is a food court right across the street. I’m an MS1 so I love that the med school is only about a 15-20 minute walk depending on how fast you walk. The main lobby has a lounge where you can hang out with friends, a study area with a coffee/tea bar, and a decent gym.

The only reason I wouldn’t give the lofts a 9 or 10 rating is because of the pricing. I’m paying over $1800 a month for a 1 bedroom, and no utilities are included (that’s an extra $160-$180 a month).

If you don’t mind the price, it is a great place to live!

I really like living here! I think it's great value for money. Best apartment I've ever lived in - I have great neighbors, parking is free and convenient, and my apartment is very spacious.

Living here is safe, close to law school. However, try renting an apartment on the upper level as bugs come in very easily.

Good price for the size of the apartment ($2130/month; 1,528 ft, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms). Huge windows with plenty of natural light. Apartment complex is generally quiet, and maintenance team has been very responsive. Amenities are pretty good - gym is on the smaller side but well-equipped, and the complex has two pools. Kitchen appliances are fairly new and work well. Closets are enormous.

Safety is a slight concern - there has been one car stolen from within the garage in the last four months, and there are no locks on the doors that lead from the garage to the interior hallway. Lobby is open to the public during business hours and interior hallway is accessible from the lobby. We did see a few cockroaches in the late summer, but exterminator responded quickly to our maintenance request and have not had issues since.

Have been here going on two years. Rent has been very reasonable thus far, good value for the amenities and age of the property relative to newer, more expensive locations on Erwin Road. There can be bug issues on the lower floors.

Review on Loft at Lakeview

7 management rating Reviewed by on

Apartment is close to Fuqua School of Business and rent varies from $1000 to $1400. Building is new and amenities are also fairly new. Only thing about this building is that the walls are porous so you can hear others footsteps easily, but not in a way that disturbs. So best to stay at the top most floor
