Clean apartment close to campus
This complex is in the ideal location for graduate students at Duke. You can walk to campus, and there are plenty of food options along Erwin Rd. The management maintains a fairly clear at
Really poor insulation in my apartment --> high electricity bill
I have found the apartments at Lofts to be quite spacious and accommodating. I have experienced a handful of minor maintenance issues (damage from a storm, a/c issues, etc) and the management has addressed each issue immediately and in each case communicated the steps that had been taken to remedy the issue and followed up afterward to ensure that I was pleased with the measures taken.
Lofts at Lakeview
It is one of the more fancier buildings in Durham, but the location is extremely convenient if you are a Duke student. Having indoor parking is also a plus since the car is protected in all kinds of weather. The only downside is these are lofts and therefore there are no doors for the bedrooms which could be an issue for privacy.
Walking distance to Duke hospital/campus
Close to Duke Hospital (within 10-15 minute walk) as well as eateries on Erwin Rd. Efficient layout with good use of available space and lots of natural light. Amenities are nice (gym, pool, etc.), well maintained, and convenient. Comes with gated garage parking and free guest parking (although you need to obtain a permit from the office if you would like to use a guest spot during business hours). A little bit expensive compared to some of the other options in Durham, however, for me the location is worth it.
Excellent apartment complex with 2 pools, weight room, fitness room, billiards, shuffle board, and a home theater!
close by with parking. not too expensive . had my own studio for 999. not including utilities.
Lofts at Lakeview Review
Great convenience to the med school/hospital!
Great Place to Live!
Walking distance from school and the hospital (great during second year when I could be at work in 10 minutes if need-be). The apartments are slightly bigger for a slightly lower cost than the Trinity apartments. Relatively safe apartment complex, although the ground-floor apartments that face the road have had a couple break-ins in the 3 years I've lived there. Good to have a gym in the building, especially during second year, and the pool is beautiful! Nice place to study in the warmer months. I have also found the staff very responsive with my requests. My only complaint was that bugs have come in during the summer months, but my apartment was sprayed promptly upon request and this is no longer an issue.
Lofts at Lakeview Review
spacious, close to hospitals, good value
Lofts at Lakeview
I really enjoy living at the Lofts. It is definitely one of the pricier options in the area- but you're paying for proximity to Duke and modern amenities/apartment style. I have only had pleasant experiences with the apartment staff and maintenance crew, have never had issues with noisy neighbors or pest problems, and love living close enough to walk and being able to forego a parking pass.
Great management and apartment
I've thoroughly enjoyed living here - the management team is very accommodating and the building is very nice. Laundry and trash on each floor, doorman for packages/ food deliveries, friendly staff, reasonable rent relative to other Wharton buildings
Spacious spot near campus
I've generally enjoyed living in Lofts the past 2 years. Our two-bedroom unit is spacious with lots of natural light (facing the lake), and management is always super-responsive to questions and requests. The location is walkable to campus and a bunch of quick-dining options, but lacks a good sit down option or grocery store within walking distance (there's a Kroger ~5 min drive away). Prices are a little higher than other options if you're willing to go further from campus, but I think entirely fair for the location and apartment space.
1 car family
We love it here. Although the furnishings are a bit dated (black appliances not stainless steel) we have enjoyed being here. We like that we are close enough to Fuqua to walk, and that we only needed to buy one car when arriving at Fuqua.
Spacious, nice amenities, close to campus
Very nice amenities, close to campus (walking distance) and very spacious. Management is very responsive. Building is quiet.
