After 10 or rather 12 years of being here (2 years from 1991 - 1993) and returning 2001 - 2011, I've seen the property go from it's heyday to it's present condition. The place was built back in 1987 and named Cypress Landings. It had a hot tub, two racketball courts, a tennis court, a fully functioning pool, weight room, coke and snack machines, water fountain, and business center. Each apartment has a washer and drier(Kenmore), 1 reserved parking spot, and password protected Wi-Fi at the pool. With the economic downturn in 2007, the upkeep is way behind. The pool maintenance is outsourced to a pool monkey rather than done in house. It needs to be drained and refilled, all PVC recirc system tubes need to be snaked to remove 10 years of neglect and clogging.
One racketball court is inop and used for storage. The hot tub was removed back in 1997 when Emerald Park bought the property. That was the best asset of this property from 1987 to 1997. The water fountain needs a new compressor, the coke and snack machines are gone, there is now 1.5 entrances rather than 2.5 entrances to the property. Woodcrest is blocked off due to crime in the area and Hancock Boulevard access is only accessable from Clyde Morris. The business center is something that Reese Witherspoon in "Legally Blonde" would approve of. The area needs relandscaping due to overgrowth, outdoor charcoal grills need to be replaced due to years of use and falling apart due to rust, and the list goes on.
In short, you're paying for the room and analog cable television, and not the "community features". They are maintained at a minimum.
