Its very nice for the amount you pay. The size of the apartments is what you really pay for. You are not going to get a huge dining and a living area and a sweet kitchen like in York anywhere else. I have lived in York Plaza on and off since 2007. Also lived in some of the neighboring ones like Durham. The small increase in rent in York compared to other places is worth it. The bathrooms are outdated. Thats the only downside. Other than that, very nice living experience.
