I should probably note that this is my first apartment ever so I have nothing to compare the Genesee too – but why would I? The Genesee staff were amazing from start to finish and they continue to be. My partner and I have looked into dozens of apartments and maybe seen a handful of them. It’s safe to say that apartment tours can sometimes be redundant and mundane, but the staff provided such a fun and memorable apartment tour that we knew upon leaving that we wanted to live there. The application process was easy and relatively swift, as we impatiently waited to hear the status of our application for an agonizing 3 days. Cue to 6 months of living here, the staff continue to provide exceptional customer service to all residents. I can honestly say that they’re genuinely amazing people. In addition, the maintenance team is very timely with work orders and does an amazing job to keep the Genesee clean. All in all, you can’t go wrong with living here (I would recommend not living anywhere else, to be honest). I’ve been blessed to call the Genesee my home and cannot wait to live here for another year!
We are empty-nesters and relocated to One Southdale Place early 2015. I was initially concerned about the size of our space being less than 1000 ft.² after leaving our 3000 square-foot home, however with the wonderful layout and floor-to-ceiling windows it feels much larger. There are plenty of cabinets and closets spaces. I am so happy that our traditional furniture fit so nicely into the space. I initially thought we would need to buy more contemporary furniture but didn’t need to replace any of our former items. The people are so friendly the security is excellent the complementary yoga classes are fun and the community areas including the gym are beautiful. The maintenance staff is attentive and respectful. Looking forward to spring so we can use the grills and summer so we can enjoy the pool and the rooftop deck.
I moved here right out of high school, 9 years ago. I can’t believe its been that long but I’ve loved living here. Sure there have been a few bumps in the road; several staff changes, a few management changes, changes to the building etc but again, I’ve lived here 9 years – a lot happens in that time. The units are great, the maintenance staff is superb: Dan Wolf is the best maintenance man you’ll ever meet. He’s beyond knowledgeable, very funny, quick and gets his work done. Anytime anything has ever overflowed, leaked, stopped working etc, it gets fixed that day. These guys are good. They recently renovated and upgraded the apartments including mine – looks awesome. You’re going to pay a bit more but its worth it. Having the washer and dryer IN your unit saves so much time/money, not having to pay for water, trash, heat/AC is equally as amazing. The computer room (fax, printer, scanner is perfect for the full time college student like myself), party room and game room (which we’ve used a lot in the past 9 years!) pool, hot tub and sauna are amazing in the 10 months of winter we usually have, the BBQs and tables/chairs in the back are fun for small gatherings or just a nice fun dinner, the list goes on. The amenities if you use them, are well worth the price. All in all, I’ve had a great time living here. I’ll be sad to leave when I do but I’ll always have fun memories at Highland Ridge =)
Staff is friendly and accommodating. Maintenance responds quickly and does quality work. Activities for the community to get to meet each other is frequent and fun. Thank you for a very nice place to live.
This was an amazing first apartment. The workers are extremely nice and get back to you in a very timely manner. The gym, study lounge, and movie theater room are very nice to have. The free wifi and cable is also a plus! It is such a safe, fun environment and super close to everything.
The staff is great. They listen to your concerns and deal with them in a very expedited manner. The property is always well kept, repairs made very quickly. This is my first real experience in an apartment. I lived in a house all my life, but this place really feels like a home. I would tell anyone to come here to live. There is something very special about Northpointe.
Living at the Flats is fun, quiet, comfortable, and relaxing. The residents and staff are friendly.
I can’t say enough about how much my kids and I love the outdoor pool at the View. The pool area is located on the west side of the building, so not only do we get to enjoy the warm sun until late in the day, but we also get to watch as my kids say “the double sunset” every night as the sun makes a pink reflection over Long Lake 🙂 Our other favorite discovery has been as my kids again would like to say ” The swimming dance party night” AKA water aerobics! Each Thursday evening all of the sunglass wearin’ water fitness neighbors gather at the pool to have fun and exercise with the help of our energetic instructor Jen, and her fun summer song mix. Thanks View for making our summer evenings so fun for our water loving family!
Great location! Hopkins is a fun city and small so its easy to get around. There are community activities, a variety of restaurants, a good movie theater with low cost tickets, the arts center is awesome -great entertainment and community classes. Hopkins is the home of a top quality public performing arts high school, Main Street School of Performing Arts. There are quality car repair shops, storage facilities, banks, grocery store (Driskills), exercise places, hair salons, small fun shops, a variety of businesses such as acupuncture, massage, accountants, dentists, Hopkins Vision Clinic, ACE Hardware, and more. Its close to HI 7 & Knollwood Mall; its off Excelsior Blvd., giving access to many St. Louis Park businesses including Methodist Hospital & Park Nicollet Clinic; & its very close to HI 169. In the complex, they take very good care of the outdoor swimming pool. Snow-removal efforts are excellent – they keep the walk ways cleared and salted. I’ve lived here for 5 years now & I’ve met some wonderful neighbors. Throughout the year there are several fun activities for the residents to get to know each other and local city service personnel often attend. Stuart Co Mgmt and our local mgmt work hard to provide a quality place for residents to call home.
Quiet is the word that comes to mind. And my view from the fourth floor is beautiful. I like the staff as well. They are friendly and helpful in numerous ways. I really appreciate the diversity within these walls. We have young families, elders, middlers like me. We have young adults both single and married. We have a variety of ethnicities and nationalities within the building and this is really a fun aspect of the apartment for me. I love dogs as well, and though I don’t have one and don’t plan to, I enjoy seeing them and do not hear them barking. I AM ADDITIONALLY THRILLED THAT WE WILL BE GOING NON-SMOKING.
