Went from 5-stars to 1-star
I loved living at 717 Olympic because it's very close to campus but had great staff and fantastic amenities. The new management company is horrible and many longterm residents have since left and are no longer tenants.
It's a nice complex but pricey for what it is. I would not be able to afford it alone.
Spacious Apartment without Problems
I haven't had any issues with this property. Management is nice and maintenance has been timely. Very close to Metro/construction across the street so can be fairly noisy throughout the day.
Nice location and value, but some serious shortcomings
This apartment is a short walk from the Wharf and two metro stops (L’Enfant and Waterfront). From my own search and talking with other residents, it’s also among the better values for the space you get. We also have had a good experience with our pets here, and many residents are friendly.
BUT the front desk, who handle most packages, can be very unresponsive or unhelpful, depending on who is there. My building (building A) also struggles to be ADA compliant, because for the majority of the six months we’ve lived here only one of the two elevators has worked at any given time and there have been days when neither worked for hours.
Good but far from campus
My roommate and I love our place. It's spacious and we got a good deal because of COVID (although still higher than I would have liked). No real issues but management has been a little difficult. The lease is like 60 pages long and they have been a little difficult to get a hold of with rent and lease questions. People often don't wear masks in common areas and there are a lot of undergrads who live here, so getting management to do anything about it is hard. It is, however, a mile away from the nearest metro but there apparently is a bus that goes straight to campus. Wish it was closer to campus too both other than than I would love to stay here, it just depends on how things end up in the next few months.
Great amenities though (which I don't often use because of the mask situation) and there are a lot of pets here.
Very Good experience, many utilities, beautiful view from roof, good for pets, 15 min away from campus, across the street from target
Overall good place to live
Great building and location but the management is non existent. If you have a problem they won't fix it but we have had no personal issues ourselves. Great place for dogs.
Nicer quality apartment
Considered a luxury building, better than the old buildings you see in Palms. Overall nice furnishings and large living space, but management company is slow on emails
Review for the Savoye at Vitruvian Park
The Savoye and Savoye 2 are a couple of the apartment complexes that surround Vitruvian Park, a picturesque little park with a large pond, running trails, trees and beautiful bridges. These apartments are nestled out of the way of the bustling city, but only 10 minutes from Restaurant Row. The park is perfect for dogs and there is even a doggy day-care located in the complex as well. Unfortunately, the other businesses that are supposed to fill up the first floor of the complexes can never seem to stay in business. The restaurants constantly go out of business and the market they have been promising for four years has never appeared. But the units are great and up-to-date. The maintenance is great and prompt. and the amenities are beautiful and great for hosting gatherings. They just installed a new set of grills too. This is a great place for singles and couples. Would not recommend for families due to noise. It can get a little loud at night, especially on the summer weekends.
it's a townhome with lots of space and offers great amenities, like a pool, gym, movie theater, and business center. The maintenance/management are not always the most responsive, so that would be my main complaint.
Nice, but also bad
Nice building; awful, loud residents
RUN from the new management company
Wonderful building located right by Staples center; very walkable; soundproof walls; extremely private; great security; lots of celebrities live here (Lakers and Clippers players, some hip hop and rap artists, etc.), and everyone in the community is extremely nice and respectful. It was worth the cost to live here. However, the building recently sold and the owner got a new management company that has been absolute hell. A living nightmare. Since then, there has been a steady stream of residents leaving including myself. Don't live here.
Very nice, too many undergrads
The apartment and its amenities are quite nice. It is also very convenient for the law school. There are, however, a ton of undergraduates who live here and who treat the building like a dorm. They often play music all night and do so with impunity (management does next to nothing to get them to stop). If you're lucky enough to not live near people like that, then this building is great. If you do live near them, then your experience will be greatly diminished.
Most beautiful apartment building I have ever lived in. Spacious, clean, top of the line gym, outdoor pool, business center, doorman service, dry cleaning in building. Location across the street from the law school. Population in the building is definitely skewed toward undergrads, but there are some grad students here.
Review of Legacy Hill
We are two Belmont PT students living at Legacy Hill. This is a great value for an apartment - safe location, includes pool and gym, dog park. It is very close to Percy Warner Park and great restaurants in the Bellevue area. The apartment is clean and relatively spacious. The complex has a great mix of students, young professionals, and families. Everyone on the staff has been friendly and helpful. The only thing we don’t like about our apartment is that it’s about a 20 minute drive from Belmont’s campus. But we chose this complex because it has everything else we were looking for, all for a good price. We felt that we had to be that far from campus to find a an apartment within our budget.
