I agree with the previous reviews...just moved in this year, and I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. I guess I should have taken the hint when I saw a drug deal taking place right in front of my building during the week that I moved in. My building is very noisy with barking dogs, loud music from open patio doors as well as from cars in the parking lot (does EVERYONE in Richmond have an 808 in their car?), slamming doors, loud cursing conversations on the landings and regular domestic disturbances. My apartment is drafty-I'm sure I'm in for a very cold winter with very high heating bills. I'm almost afraid to leave or enter my apartment after dark because of the people loitering in the area. Doesn't seem to be much of a police presence unless there's a domestic call-rarely see police drive through, and curiously, no police live on site. It seems that Maintenence is making more of an effort to be responsive and the office staff is very pleasant and accommodating. With some building improvements, better site security and a more stringent application process, perhaps conditions in the community could improve. I only wish I felt confident enough that these things will occur to stay and wait for it. Like the previous reviewer, I plan to move out as soon as my lease is up.
