I second that (@ comments: 1 in response to HATE THIS PLACE), every bit of it.
@ caulking repairs - LMAO - I was told several times before and after I moved in that the holes in my bathroom wall would be repaired. You've heard that duct tape can fix anything, well the same is true of caulk at Southridge. The half inch size holes in the wall were filled with clear caulk. I got all the aesthetic benefits of a hole without actually having one. Don't count on any repairs they promise to do during a pre-move in walk through; get it fixed or get it in writing. And don't expect the interior doors and light fixtures to be cleaned before you move in. I wiped everything down with Lysol after discovering dirt and dried blood on the backside of doors, and the kitchen lights were caked with years of dust and fumes cooking.
Management keeps putting money into cosmetic fixes like painting the hallways and doors ( the least of any problems here), carpeting in the hallways (not the carpet inside the units) and re-surfacing the parking lot, painting the siding and railings of the patio (which you won't use anyway, it's too small to hold a bike thanks to the noisy AC/heating units)... how about installing some double-pane windows or at least fixing the existing windows so they don't leak. I know people here who have had water coming in around the window casing and the window frame on a number of occasions.
If you do have a maintenance issue that requires Southridge personnel to enter your apartment, be prepared to clean up after them when you come home from a long day of classes or work.
Pets are allowed, and so are owners who don't clean up after them. Interestingly, tenants with the biggest dogs have the biggest problem cleaning up, and apparently management has charged no one with the task of removing the residual fecal matter.
My final assessment:
serenity no, poop yes
By far the worst place ever! The apartments are terribly built, girls in the office space cadets, maintenance obsessed with caulking and management "lack there of."
Ya, this is Ryan and lemme tell ya these apartments are crap. Them girlz in da office big enough to empty a pool never do shizz. They needz to get off their buttz. I think them have lotz of problemz and this place got to be wack.
