Hi guys... I need some information. Do you know anything about the following lofts:

- 1016 Lofts (archstone) 1016 Howell Mill Rd
- 100Midtown

I found an offer for a room in the first one for 600$ and about 700$ for the second one. I saw that 100Midtown has more common open spaces. What do you think about that? I'm looking for a place where is easy to socialize for a foreign person.

I checked the reviews in Apartment Ratings - Apartments for Rent with Ratings and Reviews from Actual Renters but i guess that there are a lot of fakes (too much 1-line reviews saying for any loft "don't come here is horrible" "don't came here is not safe" and so on...)

100Midtown is a student loft building (at least, it's marketed that way), so there will be a LOT of students living there. Plus, it's right next to the Downtown Connector, and so noise will be a major issue.

1016 Lofts is a nice complex, but the area it's in is less than desirable mainly because of the Compound, a nightclub adjacent to the property. What this means is a lot of noise at night as well as some break-ins (I have a friend who lives there and tells me about the break-ins - not everyday, but it happens).

For noise i don't care, I would stay at 10th floor... But for social activities and possibility to know people where do you think would be better for me (I'm 29) ?

I found a good offer in 1016 but i would stay with a woman (a "bit" older than me). I think that living with an adult woman could be convenient for many reasons but I've some doubts about social life. Generally for a foreign person the first contact is with the flat-mate and for this i was thinking to 100midtown where they would fit me with other flat-mates according to some preferences. They have also many shared open spaces but the prices would be much higher... So I'm quite confused...
