Can anyone provide info about the neighborhoods of these communities? I know 626 Dekalb is located near the train station, resulting in noise from the trains. Any other info about these apartments would be greatly appreciated!

We live at 660 and find the community very nice. The amenities are awesome, everything is brand new, and the interiors are great. The downside is that the complex is fairly close to boulevard, which has a lot of foot traffic and people just hanging out on the streets all day long. Also, there is a marta stop right by the leasing office which brings some interesting people into the area.

We looked at 626 Dekalb, but didn't go inside because the building itself is tagged pretty bad. The area around it is kinda seedy too.

Come by for a tour and I'm sure you'll love it. We looked at several before we saw these and we were so impressed.

Thanks for your input, aacole! I'm a little apprehensive knowing there are people just hanging around. The foot traffic you mentioned raises some concern, but I'll definitely check it out before ruling it out.

Its not that there is foot traffic near the apartments, but about half a mile down Ralph McGill is boulevard where all the problems are. There are a lot of people walking dogs, jogging, etc. The complex is still being built so there is some construction noise on the west side of the complex. If you can, get a west facing unit on the top floor. The city views are amazing!

I believe the construction you mentioned is for the new park associated with the Beltline.

Actually construction seems to be halted on the beltline. The apartment complex is still under construction. There is scaffolding on the building still and most of that side is vacant still so you can have your choice of apartment!

We looked all over from Decatur to Smyrna! You can't beat the price, location, amenities, and fixtures. Plus they're brand new! We just reserved an apartment, so I guess we'll be neighbors!

I live in Gleenwood East and would not be living here, if I knew what I know now...Many cars and homes have been broken into. Parking is very unsafe; the parking garage is not attached to the apartments so you have to go back outside before you have to enter through another gate, to enter your building. This also makes it hard to load and unload your groceries, etc. because you have to carry everything so far. They have also hired Midtown Tow to tow the cars that are in the unloading zone after hours (8pm-6am)...so many guest and their visitors that work late night jobs have been towed while unloading their x-mas gifts and groceries!!! I know one person who has been towed 3x even though their assigned Glenwood East parking permit was displayed. Run while you can!!!!
