I looked into this apartment complex a few months ago after their opening, and before their Studios were completed. About 2 or 3 months later, I made the move and have been DISAPPOINTED ever since. Please, do not let the manicured landscape mislead you.
The floors and walls are thin. If you are even remotely a light sleeper, plan on more than a few sleepless nights. You can easily hear every toilet flush and the water flushing down the pipes. Very romantic.....

If you dont opt for the $100 garage or the $30 covered parking, good luck finding a parking spot after 7:30 pm or later. The facility was NOT built with enough parking spaces available to fulfill the resident occupancy and their guests.

And, in the few short weeks I have lived here, the domestic disturbances are abundant. From all out domestic violence requiring police response, Soldier throwing his wifes clothing off the 3rd floor balcony, to midnight surprises of girlfriends banging on their boyfriends door (obviously, he had another woman in his apartment), or residents throwing parties to 2 am and have zero respect for others who would normally be sleeping at that hour, or the bass thumpers in their cars as they roll through the complex..........

I am completely fed up with this garbage. As new as this apartment complex is, as pricey as the rent is, I have come to describing this "Upscale Living" as ghetto and will be giving a 30 day move out notice. As beautiful as it is, that decision was still an easy one.
