- Quality of amenities are really high.
- Management is very responsive to any complaints filed.
Recent Berkshire Communities reviews
The community is very familiar and traditional, perfect for a family. The neighbors value and respect hours of volume, and are well behaved (no parties or smoking). The only reason I'm giving a 9 instead of a 10 is because the rail (Metro) pass next to the property every five minutes and the bells ring loudly.
Berkshire Main Review
Very good amenities, the extra utilities costs are a little much with valet trash but the add ons for internet/cable are reasonable. The office is responsive and helpful and the building is gorgeous
Large, clean apartments. Helpful staff. Lots of resident events with free food now. A big communal clubhouse area with places to study. Great location, across the street from Harris Teeter which has a Starbucks in it.
Overall, a convenient location
Management is responsive and there is a 24-hour security officer to manage who enters the building. Every entrance point requires a key fob and the building is very secure. Less than a 10 minute drive to campus!
Review of Greenbriar Park
Access to pool and gym makes this gated community really enjoyable. Kitchen works. Living room was pleasant. Furniture a bit old but nothing dramatic.
Sort of luxury
B9 is great for people looking to spend a couple of hundred bucks extra for a more modern, quiet and better looking apartment
Love it here
Love b9! Amenities are amazing, and it’s less of a party scene than station nine. The building has a gym, a pool, and a bunch of common spaces. Really love it here.
Management is pretty horrible
Berkshire Ninth Street Review
Good, but expensive
Best on 9th Street
Great for Fuqua students. Is it expensive? Yes, especially if you don’t have a roommate. But everywhere on 9th street is. I have gotten frustrated with random charges. One tip: see if you can negotiate your rent down a bit before signing, it worked for me. B9 has the best dog park and a nice lobby/clubhouse which is nice to use for small get-togethers. They do a lot of resident events with free food and drinks. Love that it’s close to Harris Teeter. Nice that S9 is right across the street, so you can go there for pool parties/house parties, but then come back to somewhere a little quieter. B9 is also a lot easier to navigate than S9, in my opinion. Berkshire Main is a bit too far away from the action and not as many MBA students live there. B9 is the best option for a Fuqua student. I’m in a studio which has very little closet space and storage space. You have to get a bit creative in a studio.
Roosevelt Square Review
B9 Corner Unit
I live in a two-bedroom, 2-bath apartment in B9 with a roommate on the 3rd floor. We both have walk-in closets, similar and good-sized bedrooms, and our own bathrooms. Our apartment is an open floor plan, and we have a patio that is spacious as well. The pool and gym are great amenities, and there is also a clubhouse and study rooms that are useful if I want to work or host outside of my apartment. It is conveniently located on 9th street next to Station 9.
We have had a number of issues with the apartment, that management is sometimes slow to respond to. For instance, we asked them to fix our dishwasher, and in trying to fix it, they reset the circuit breaker breaking the dishwasher further. After submitting a request to fix it, they haven't been able to come back so we've been out of a dishwasher for almost a week. The washer and dryer are basic models with only a few settings.
I do like the apartment overall, but it is definitely lacking in some areas for what the rent is.
Nice community, great location, okay management
We love our unit in B9, it is modern, spacious, and has all the amenities you could ask for. I love the community team that throws bi-weekly events for the apartment community.
The only complaint is that the management can be slow to respond and there is often trash or cardboard boxes left outside of units for days at a time during the week (when this is supposed to be included in a required, paid service),
Love my apartment and maintenance always fixes problems in a timely manner. Very secure and safe. Location is convenient to Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Harris Teeter along with many restaurants. 10 minute commute to McColl and 7 minutes from downtown Chapel Hill.
